Colors Used
  • The organic pixel technique is a very visual technique combining sharp, graphic lines and color gradings. The positioning of the pixels depends strongly on the haircut, therefore shape and length need to be considered before coloring

Pre-Lighten

 

Pre-Lighten
  • Start creating pixels at the front, taking very fine horizontal slices
  • Apply the lightener with a very precise line at the bottom of the pixel by using the Schwarzkopf Professional Silicone Brush whilst creating a soft grading towards the upper end of the pixel by using a normal Schwarzkopf Professional tint brush

 

Pre-Lighten
  • Pixels should be slightly staggered and overlapped in each slice (similar to a brick wall pattern) to reinforce the pixel effect
  • Work your way through the front still using the lightener only, layering and fixing slices on transparent foil with hairspray as you go

Pixel Effect Colors

 

Pixel Effect Colors
  • Section the pre-lightened hair into six horizontal sections working backwards through the parting
  • Colors 1, 3, 4 and 5 should be alternated onto the pre-lightened base to achieve a balanced end result; always check your technique visually from section to section to ensure the desired balance of shades
  • Start coloring on one side, at the front of the hairline, applying one color to the pre-lightened pixels in each section
  • Work your way through each of the sections (alternating colors); working like this means that each of the six sections will be subdivided into fine back to back slices
  • Develop all colors according to appropriate timings
  • Rinse, then shampoo the hair with FIBREPLEX Shampoo and treat with FIBREPLEX N°2 Bond Sealer to create new bonds within the hair fiber for noticeable strength, suppleness and shine
