The Colour Process

Here at Hair Republic, we are always updating our own styles. I wanted to try out this pretty Mermaid Hair Style and asked Senior Stylist Karen Lino to give me a hair transformation!

Karen started off by diluting Electric Blue direct-dye Sparks, which is a hair colouring product that can be applied directly to the hair without using a developer and is the Funky Colour product used here at Hair Republic. Since my hair was already blonde, she did not need to use any Bleach in this process. She spread the colour throughout my hair, from roots to ends, and massaged it thoroughly for even application. Because the blonde colour of my hair was still quite golden, it mixed with the blue to create the perfect seafoam green colour we were looking to achieve.

Once the colour application was complete, Karen shampooed and conditioned my hair using Kevin Murphy Hydrate Me Wash & Rinse.

Styling

To style my mermaid hair, Senior Stylist Karen first used Kevin Murphy Anti-Gravity Spray on my wet locks. She then blow dried my hair to prepare for curling. Karen used a 1 and ¼ inch iron, the perfect size for beachy curls, taking large sections of hair at a time for variation in the curl. She then had me lean back so my hair fell straight down, and finger combed out the curls to relax them. Karen finished off the style with a quick spray of Living Proof Flex Hair Spray to keep my look in tact all day long.
