Best Creative Colour Winner - Lucy Keeling @lucykeelinghair

 Color Outside The Lines Lucy Keeling

How Lucy achieved this look:

To create this colour I first lifted my model’s hair with synchrolift+30vol and then pretoned with Demi 9V+Processing Liquid to make a clean blonde. I then applied a combination of Pop XG colours Mint Condition, Purple, Pink, Orange and Red with a sponge for a softer look. I rinsed this off then applied the leopard print details with Inkworks black. 

Best Colour Transformation - Angel-Lee Hilton @angelhilton_

 Color Outside The Lines Angel -Lee Hilton

How Angel-Lee achieved this look:

Very proud of this colour correction I achieved in just one day. I achieved this look by lightening the ends first with 9% Synchro Lift with the use of Olaplex through out the whole process! I lifted until the all the previous colour was removed and started going a yellow/orange tone which took up to 50-55 minutes I then when back through and applied 6% Synchro Lift to the root area which lifted within 30 minutes as that’s the hottest part of the head. My next and very important step was to pre tone! So I took my guests back to the section toned the mids with 9A to remove Orange & ends with 9V to remove Yellow. Left for 15 minutes then applied 9V to the roots for last 5 minutes which then left me with a lovely clean base, I washed off but did NOT shampoo off the pre tone - I hairdryed off my guests hair & for my last but not least toner I applied 15ml 10A & 15ml 10N with a pea size of /66.
