Our Endless Summer VIBES Contest invited colorists to post Before & After shots of their most gorgeous VIBES designs, for a chance to win a pair of Beats by Dre™ headphones!
After a heated voting period, Barbi Horn emerged the clear victor! See how Barbi achieved her winning design!
Model Starting Levels –
Roots: Level 6
Mid-lengths & Highlighted Ends: Level 9
Barbi prepped the hair for a perfect color service with a complete Ultimate Treatment* using the Moisture Booster.
On clean, dry hair, she began with a heavy balayage using Healing Powder Decolorizer + 20 Volume Healing Color Developer (1:2), and process till hair reached a Level 9. Once achieved, Barbi did another Ultimate Treatment* using the Strength Booster.
*When using Ultimate Treatment with the new Color Attach System, for best results, do not use Power Protector.
Before her VIBES color application, Barbi sprayed Color Attach-Step 1 on dry hair, then proceeded with the color application.
VIBES Violet, Red, Orange, and Yellow was applied straight from the tube, without dilution, in back-to-back foils. Different VIBES formulas were applied down each section, beginning with VIBES Violet, then Red, Orange, and Yellow.
Barbi kept the pattern consistent throughout, but admits to straying here and there. “Sometimes I let my creativity get the best of me” says Barbi, “I ended up choosing certain sections where I felt a variation would show even stronger color.”
Color was processed for a full 20 minutes, and then rinsed. Hair was cleansed and conditioned with Healing Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner, and finished off with a generous mist of Color Attach-Step 2.
The final step: Barbi finished off her model in full deep treatment luxury with Keratin Healing Oil Emergency Service. leaving the hair in extraordinary condition!
