Family-Friendly Quarantine Color

If you’ve run out of projects for the family, we’ve got the perfect activity that everyone can get involved in: hair color. @jillpaintsdenver might be a pro when it comes to her own hair and the hair of her clients, but she’s also pretty great at making her daughters’ strands look amazing as well. She gives us a full rundown on how she made life at home a little more colorful.



Name:

Jill-Ann Bauer

About Me:

I’m a mom of 3, a wife, and a hairstylist

Location:

Denver, CO

The How-To:


PIPER’S HOW-TO


Hair Texture:

Med-Fine

Starting hair color:

Virgin level 7/6

oVertone colors used:

Blue for Brown Hair, Purple for Brown Hair, Vibrant Magenta, Vibrant Purple

Step-by-Step process: 

“We envisioned a mermaid, unicorn, peacock. I used the Purple for Brown Hair on all of her root area, and sectioned her top mohawk away and made all of that Purple for Brown Hair. After that, I alternated diagonal sections of Blue for Brown Hair, Vibrant Purple, and Vibrant Magenta.  The reason I put all these colors under her mohawk section is because I wanted them all to peak-a-boo out from under her purple.  She LOVES her hair!!!!”



AMELIE’S HOW-TO


Hair Texture:

Medium 

Starting hair color: 

natural level 6 with blonde balayage

oVertone colors used:

Rose Gold Coloring Conditioner and Pastel Purple Coloring Conditioner

Step-by-Step process:

“The first thing we did was give her a cute Lob haircut!! Then I mixed about 70% Rose Gold and 30% Pastel Purple then applied it all over her hair root to end. It came out perfect and so shiny.”



JILL’S HOW-TO


Hair Texture:

Fine 

Starting hair color: 

Roots are level 5/6  with a balayage at levels 8/9  throughout. I also have a few balayage tape-in extensions at the same levels.

oVertone colors used: 

50/50 Pastel Pink Coloring Conditioner and Pastel Purple Coloring Conditioner

Step-by-Step process:

“I also applied mine root to end, really saturating the existing blonde in my hair.  It’s the perfect Orchid!”


Any additional tips?

“The first thing I ALWAYS do is apply a heat protectant before styling. I also like to wait until the hair has dried 50-80% on its own before I start to blowdry. After I dried it, I curled all of our hair with a 1.25” barrel curling iron.”
