Few things go better together than Halloween and candy corn. To satisfy your sweet tooth, stylist Jaymz Marsters (@jaymz.marsters) created a vivid yellow and orange melt that’s incredibly reminiscent of the multicolored candy. Here, he walks us through the steps to achieve the look using Manic Panic Professional Gel Hair Color.

Step-by-Step:

  • Model was a natural base 6. Lift hair to a level 10 and lighten ends if necessary. 
  • Base Color: ½ tube of Solar Yellow Professional Gel Hair Color
  • End Color: ½ tube of Solar Yellow Professional Gel Hair Color + drop of Pussycat Pink Gel Hair Color
  • On damp hair, apply the SY formula throughout the root area.
  • For a seamless melt, comb the root color through to the ends. 
  • Apply the SY + PP formula on the ends and blend upward. 
  • With a clean comb, comb from the root section downward to diffuse any harsh lines.
  • Process at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
