We recently caught up with colorist Kenya Rose inside of her salon Noir Rose located in the heart of Downtown Memphis! With our recent collaboration with Celeb Luxury, we challenged Kenya to create a fun summer look using ONLY Celeb Luxury's colorwash and colorditioner.

Join us as show you just how Kenya was able to create this amazing color!
Step 1: Our model Aldavina came in with this already stunning blonde color. We wanted to make sure we had an even palette, so we used Celeb Luxury's Flawless Diamond colorwash and colorditioner to get rid of any unwanted yellow tones prior to adding our fun summer colors! Remember, we are trying to achieve Blue, NOT Green.
Step 2: Create your Formula
Sunstone: 45 grams
BondFix: 15 grams
Blue: 7 grams
Green: 2 grams
For our accent colors, we’ll use Viral Extreme Colorwash in Yellow and Viral Hybrid Colorditioner with Bondfix in Magenta.
Step 3: To section the hair you will need a long sectioning clip and one small clear rubber band. Begin the “bolt” section by making an exaggerated side part about 1/2” in width and the length of the sectioning clip that you’ll be using. You want it to be at least 3” in length. The “berry” section is achieved by creating a crisp circular section right above the parietal ridge and securing it snuggly with the clear band. The position will ensure visibility no matter which direction you style the hair.
Step 4: Application is done on dry hair. Using 1/4 inch partings, apply the blue everywhere being extra careful as to not interrupt the areas that you carefully sectioned. Once your blue mixture is applied from scalp to ends, use another brush to apply the yellow. Feel free to use foil if the length allows it. Do not allow the colors to touch. Apply the magenta using a very small detailing brush. In a twirling motion, saturate the circular section with the magenta.
Step 5: Allow it to sit on the hair for 25 minutes.
Step 6: Rinse hair with cool water beginning with the blue. Avoid the bolt and berry section if possible. After the blue is rinsed, proceed to the bolt section and then the berry. Once complete, towel dry and proceed to styling.
Step 7: Using a blow dryer on low heat, tousle the hair dry. Using your favorite foam wrap, mold the hair into a flat style. Place client under the dryer. Once dry, priced styling with 1//4 inch flat iron on medium heat.
This was such a fun and effortless color that is perfect for the client that loves to play with their color without the permanent commitment!
You can retail this custom mix to your client to maintain this fun look, OR send them home with the Flawless Diamond colorwash! This will help them fade to the perfect tone of blonde while also prepping their tresses for the next set of fun colors without the harshness of re-bleaching.
