5 ESSENTIAL STEPS FOR 1 STEP BLONDING:
1 – WHERE AM I STARTING? Use the PRAVANA starting level tool found in their swatch book to determine the natural starting level. They suggest to always formulate from the darkest level found in the hair when going lighter.
2 – WHERE AM I GOING? Determine how light or dark you want the hair for the finished color. What undertones will be present and are you going to neutralize, balance or enhance those tones.
3 – HOW FAR DO I HAVE TO GO TO GET THERE? Figure out how many levels of lift or deposit you will need and choose the appropriate developer and color product to get you there.
4 – ARE THERE ANY OBSTACLES IN MY WAY? Use the PRAVANA Grey Chart, Contributing Pigment, and Corrective Base Charts to identify the color family needs to address any obstacles that need special attention. This includes condition of the hair.
5 – HOW DO I ADDRESS THOSE OBSTACLES? Use the PRAVANA underlying pigment wheel to formulate anything that is missing, or needing to be added, in the underlying pigment of your finished color. This step helps to decide what shade, or mixture of shades, of PRAVANA color you will use in your color formula.
PRAVANA also provides you with a color wheel and a numbering system in their CHROMASILK level and tonal values.
