Get the Look: Mermaid Blue

Even supermodels like go under the sea when it comes to their hair! Last month, fashion model Karlie Kloss transformed her beautiful blonde locks into true mermaid hair for a photo shoot, rocking piecey, blue peek-a-boos for a fun pop of color. PRAVANA invites you to recreate the look using the NEW vibrant, long-lasting VIVIDS Jewels! These new additions to the VIVIDS collection are available now in three shades: Amethyst, Blue Topaz and Emerald. Bringing even more creative color palette possibilities, the new VIVIDS Jewel shades are universally complementary and beautifully bold. 

Bright blue hair color like Karlie's is a perfect way to get you and your clients ready to dive headfirst into the upcoming summer season! PRAVANA Stylist Jamie Muniz (@twomadhares) created the below formula and technique so you can get the look:


  1. Pre-lighten hair using an ombre technique with Pure Light Power Lightener and choice of developer. Process until level 10 lightness is achieved. 
  2. Shampoo, condition and dry the hair. 
  3. Apply equal parts VIVIDS Blue Topaz and PASTELS Mystical Mint to pre-lightened hair. 
  4. Process 20-30 minutes at room temperature.
  5. Shampoo, condition and protect with the VIVIDS Color Protect aftercare line. 
  6. Style as desired.
