How-To Video: Denim Color with Undercut

Just like its fashion counterpart, denim hair is completely customizable to best complement the wearer’s skin tone and style. This trend is a nod to true Americana and goes perfectly with everything, just like your favorite pair of jeans. 

Watch how PRAVANA Artistic Educator Meg B. White (@megbwhitesalon) creates a "Blue Jean Baby" look using custom blends of VIVIDS, NEONS, PASTELS and Black. White achieves a perfect platinum prior to applying VIVIDS with Pure Light Power Lightener, The Perfect Blonde Purple Toning Regimen and ChromaSilk Express Tones. BONUS: Make a statement with an undercut. White adds edge to this denim hue with an on-trend buzz for a subtle pop when the hair is pulled up.
