Rainbow Look Pride

It’s Pride month! And what better way to celebrate, than with some simple steps for creating the ultimate rainbow hair look, from Pulp Riot artist, Heather Shaw?

We all know when it comes to creating optimum hair colour, a healthy and clean base is key. So, head here to read our article on everything to do with creating a clean canvas for hair colour.

Step 1

Lift the hair to a level 9 for the perfect vivid pastel result.

Step 2

Pre-tone for the added colour to pop.

Step 3

Take fine horizontal sections working up the hair. Use a foil or meche to paint your rainbow directly onto the hair. Tension is key for precision placement!

Step 4

Apply your colours, such as Pulp Riot Semi Permanent Velvet (purple), Powder (blue), Lemon (yellow), Cupid (pink), and Blush.

Top Tip

You don’t need seven bowls of colour to create your rainbow. Be smart with your placement. For example, in this look Heather blends blue into yellow to create green, and yellow onto pink to make blush. Simply overlap the colours whilst blending.

Step 5

Once developed, rinse with cool water to avoid colour fade.

Step 6

Styling is key to show off your colour. Tong sections for a glam look.
