10-Gram Elumen® Hair Color Accent

Convincing guests to try something new is easy if you take it easy – Elumen easy!

Patrick McIvor, Artistic & TechniCulture Director for Goldwell and KMS California, has a technique that takes less than 10 grams of color to create a statement accent that can be covered up when needed and loud and proud when wanted. 

“I was looking to share how amazing Elumen® hair color was on natural, uncolored hair, my daughter Claire had never colored her hair before, so I demonstrated how a permanent color could preserve the integrity of her hair and give high impact color.  With Goldwell® Elumen® hair color, you can create fashion statements and fun accents, and because it’s a pure acidic direct dye, it’s basically damage-free coloring with incredible vibrancy and shine,” says McIvor.

Here’s the how-to:
McIvor used less than 10 grams of Goldwell® Elumen® hair color Tq@all on natural level 7 hair and processed at room temperature for 30 minutes.  

1. Backcomb each section once with a comb and then feather color in with a brush to create softness

2  Be an artist – when feathering color, trust your eye and hold the brush like a razor, decreasing pressure as you work up

3. Work in fine sections

4. Work back to back in foil, without any foil in between, so the color saturates on both sides
