Hair How-To: ELECTRIC YOUTH – Chloe

The ELECTRIC YOUTH LOOK shuns prescriptive cut and color – to embrace the nonconformist, cool kids who never want to ‘fit in’ – contrasting lengths and shapes, mixed with modern texture are seen in the hair, whilst the color blends bright highlights and blonds with soft tones of biscuit and apricot.

 

To recreate this iconic look, follow the steps below:

 

Before & After 

 

Before & After

Colors Used: 

  • COLOR 1 – IGORA Vario Blond PLUS + 3% IGORA ROYAL Oil Developer
  • COLOR 2 – IGORA ROYAL 7-57 + 3% IGORA ROYAL Oil Developer
  • COLOR 3 – IGORA ROYAL 9.5-1 + 3g 0-88 (30:1) + 3% IGORA ROYAL Oil Developer
  • COLOR 4 – IGORA ROYAL 9.5-1 + 3g 8-77 (30:1) + 3% IGORA ROYAL Oil Developer

Step 1 – Section the hair for color

 

Step 1
  • Create two triangular sections on the right side; one triangle is positioned next to the temple and the other right on top of the ear
  • Create one triangular section on the left side; this is also positioned on top of the ear

Step 2 – Color 1 (Pre-Lighten)

 

Step 2
  • Working in very fine back-to-back slices, pre-lighten the triangle sections, from roots to ends, using color 1

Step 3 – Color 2 (Base Tone)

 

Step 3
  • Apply color 2 onto the remaining hair from roots to ends 
  • Develop according to appropriate timings
  • Rinse, then shampoo the hair using BC Color Freeze Sulfate-Free Shampoo

Step 4 – Colors 3 & 4 (Triangle Sections)

 

Step 4
  • Taking the pre-lightened triangular sections, apply color 3 to the roots 
  • Follow with color 4
  • Leave the end panels untouched to keep the ends light blond
  • Develop according to appropriate timings
  • Rinse, then condition the hair using BC Color Freeze Conditioner 

Tip: To create a beautiful marble effect, it is important to blend the pastel shades into each other. Do not create hard lines! To contrast the strong haircut soft tones of biscuit, apricot and gold are used against the neutral brown.
