Ion Color Brilliance Brights Tutorial


1. I thought it would be fun to layer two similar colors for a little dimension and interest. The winners? Fuschia and Purple! Since the model’s hair already had highlights, I was able to skip the pre-lightening step.

2. I wanted a subtle peek-a-boo highlight, so I picked a spot about halfway down her head, close to her ear, and sectioned it off.

3. Using a pintail comb, I took a small 1/8 inch section, and painted on the purplecolor. Then I wrapped it up all nice and snug in foil to keep it from bleeding into the fuschia and the rest of her hair.

4. I repeated Step 3 with the fushcia.

5. I ended up with three foils – two purple and one fuschia.

6. After 30 minutes of processing, we had funky and fun colorful highlights. You could definitely add more sections of color if you wanted a bolder look, or even color your whole head. It’s totally up to you!

    Thanks for the tips, but my question is this.
    When is the Fuchsia going to be available in the stores (in the Seattle area) and in the online store??? I can’t seem to track that color down! Just wanted to know why is it so hard to get more of this merchandise in :/ as I really want this color. Thanks :)

    Hello, I wanted to know if the paint color called “Color Brilliance”, wanted to know how long is removed or is permanent?
