The 20/20 collection from John Paul Mitchell Systems highlights camouflage-inspired hair. JPMS Artist Ryan Belmonte melded classic forest green tones and rich Bordeaux shades to create a transformative look that can be adjusted with styling to appear either bold or more subtle. 

In a how-to guide, Belmonte organizes his two-phase approach to paneling, sectioning, layering and painting.  

His tips on elevation, direction and tension can help achieve a clean final look. Working with a foil overlay is super important to keep the colors as intended, he notes. Belmonte also reminds us to keep camouflage in mind, which “can stand out in a certain setting but also blend in in other settings,” he says.

When painting is complete, he finishes with a 30-minute process, rinses with detangler and styles. The end result is a cover-worthy look that can be achieved in the salon too.
