I love creating beautiful hair,” says Edwards. “It’s an art form to me, I especially love beautiful vivids.”

Learn how to recreate the look:

Step 1: Started of with 6 week old Color which was a base of lightener and 20vol highlights with a base tint 9.3, 20 vol Fanola with faded out Pravana Vivids on the ends.

Step 2: I sectioned off 3 triangle panels to prelighten for the Rainbow Vivids.

Step 3: I began color correction by choosing a target shade of Fanola 5.29.

Step 4: I filled with equal parts 6.4 and 6.6 with water (1:1) mixed until creamy and applied to hair and combed off the excess product. Do Not Rinse!

Step 5: I applied 70grams Fanola 5.29, 10 grams 5.03 10vol straight over filled sections.

Step 6: I Processed for 40mins .

While the tint was processing I applied lightener and 20vol to triangle panels and processed up to level 9/10 for approximately 20mins.

Step 6: Washed off lightener and tint, shampooed and dried the hair ready to apply Pravana vivid customised shades.

My inspiration behind this particular client was a true sea change, with a hint of mermaid,” said Edwards.
