How-To: Butterfly Color

“I’m a firm believer in the glitter movement!” That’s what PRAVANA Artistic Educator Presley Poe had to say about her inspiration for this sparkling VIVIDS creation. Transforming her client into a beautiful, vibrant butterfly with customized creative color formulas using shades from the VIVIDS collection PLUS a detailed undercut, Poe then glammed it up with a sprinkle of shimmer! The look was also done as an ode to industry artists that she admires right now.

“I took immense pleasure in creating a version of jewelry for this beautiful girl!” said Poe, who not only has a strong VIVIDS hair color game but major undercut skills.

The VIVIDS undercut trend is taking over the summer as THE hot hair look! No matter the hair length, anyone can rock it . . . . glitter included.
