Celebrity Hair Color: Dame Helen Mirren’s Daring Pink ‘Do

Dame Helen Mirren debuted a new pastel pink hair color on the red carpet of the 2013 BAFTA Awards.

PRAVANA Guest Celebrity Artist Daniel Moon of the Andy Lecompte Salon reinforces that pastels work on women of all ages, stating, “Pastels are beautiful and complimentary to every age due to their soft qualities. I recommend platinum clients test drive a pastel piece of their hair just to know how uplifting a lucky strand can make you feel. When it comes to pastels it’s better to be lighter then to have to go back and lighten. Live to Dye.”

Achieving a faint pink requires a few steps. If the client has color in their hair (which they usually do) it will have to be pre-lightened to a level 9-10 for a soft pastel. This can be accomplished by removing color with PRAVANA Artificial Hair Color Extractor, then lightened with PRAVANA Pure Light Power Lightener. When the lightened level is achieved, mix 1 tube of PRAVANA Silk Degrees Shine Treatment with 1/4 ounce of PRAVANA VIVIDS in Pink. Apply evenly and process at room temperature for 30 minutes.
