Summer is just around the corner which means it’s officially peach season!
This dip dye technique was created by Justin Frost from Kadus Professionals and is easy to achieve.
Usually, a colour melt technique is achieved with a dark root melting into a medium shade in the mid shaft which blends out lighter toward the ends.
However, this unique dip dye was done by creating a deep root melting into a lighter mid shaft and then blurring it into the medium shade on the tips. This adds richness to the tones while keeping light in the copper and peach colour pallets.
Copper Peach Formula:
Formula A: True Blondes lightening powder W/20vol Developer
Formila B: Permanent Color 6C & 7CR & &B W/13vol Developer

Copper Peach How-To:
Prep hair by pre-lightening from roots to ends with formula A to a level 8-9 Shampoo with Visible Repair shampoo & Visible Repair in-salon treatment.
Step 1. Section the hair into 4 sections (down the center to the nape & ear to ear.) Create a shadow root 1 to 2 inches using formula B.
Step 2. Apply Formula C. from the shadow root to the mid shaft. Make sure to blend the transition thoroughly.
Step 3. Apply Formula D. with same blending technique. Note: Blending is key. Step 4. Create accent piece with formula E. This step is optional. It is subtle but very effective.
