How to get pastel hair in 10 minutes.

Pastel hair, granny hair, denim hair, lavender hair, silver hair, pink hair,... we all love this trend!
The internet is full of it. 
And yes, even I as colorist have my inspirational searches on the Internet.

But here's the truth about some of those lovely colors on the net:

Original picture vs. photoshopped

But what triggers me the most to writing this blog are the latest trends as granny hair, silver hair and denim hair:

What the Internet doesn't tell you, 
pastel colors like silver, grey or blue are only to be done on perfectly white bleached hair! 
I repeat this again!
If the canvas isn't white, your color will turn out greenish, brassy and believe me, ugly!!!

Photoshop can help you get the colours that, somethimes, aren't even realistic, 
an other way to get it in 10minutes are wigs:

Or extensions:

And to top it of with my favorite example:

  2. Hi! I was wondering what Tigi bleach you prefer.. true light or true light white? I have naturally very pale but fairly warm blonde hair and I have been bleaching it a cool white blonde for years now. I have used Tigi in the past and would like to try it again but I was wondering which of these provides a better lift or if they are pretty much the same other than the added purple toning (which I will always tone my hair after the bleaching regardless). Thank you so much for your help.. you're so talented btw!!

    1. Hi hannah, I would always recommand a toner after bleaching, even if its only to add some more shine to the hair... but as for your question, i love using both, the white one feels softer on the scalp, i use this one on me, the blue one will neutralize more during the bleach, so if you have a lot of natural warmth, i would go for the blue one.... :)

  3. Hi hannah, i appreciate you for sharing with us it is really awesome to get such information
