Learn How-To: Organized Chaos Iridescent Color

While researching iridescent haircolor, Leslie Cook, stylist at Tangles Salon (Wichita Falls, TX www.tangles.com), came across a pictures of an opal and immediately began testing color placements, which evolved into her organized chaos color.

I discovered that iridescence is created by light waves that interfere with one another, so I devised a formula that created the appearance of iridescence with constructive placements of light, dark, bright and pastel colors,” says Cook.
