Creating the perfect mermaid hair is all about mimicking various colors of the ocean, melting several shades of blue throughout the hair. Here’s an example of how to achieve this look using Elumen from KMS National Artist, Sage Kinney.
EXISTING SHADES: To start, the model had a natural level of 7N and an existing level of prelightened 10+.
Step 1: Apply Elumen formula (BL@ALL 60mls + TQ@ALL 60mls) to all of the regrowth traveling 2-3 inches down the hair.
Step 2: Take diagonal parts in the back of the hair to create a brick-lay of triangular sections, alternating the three separate formulas listed below in the following pattern: 1, 2, 1, 3, 1. All formulas were laid on top of each other without any foil or barrier to separate.
⦁ Formula 1 (Elumen TQ@ALL 60mls)
⦁ Formula 2 (Elumen GN@ALL 60mls)
⦁ Formula 3 (Elumen BL@ALL 60mls)
Step 3: Process in open air for 30 minutes before washing with Elumen Wash, locking in for five minutes and conditioning with Elumen Treat.
Step 4: Using the KMS THERMASHAPE Straightening Cream to create a perfect blowout that moves without frizz, leaving behind a non-greasy finish.
