Color me Violet

After much thought i have gone violet . The processes was a bit tedious and some trial and error was involved . I talked to my stylist the wonderful Sr.Will and we decided to try out Avada pure tone color . Much to my disappointment it faded unbelievably fast . Within the first 2 weeks i was pink and had only washed my hair 3 times . By the third week i was back in the chair . I have always had my eye on Pravana ChromaSilk Vivids . I talked to a few beauty gurus that have used it and all gave me the same response , Great color brand .
(Pravana Violet)  

The Color i picked was there Violet . It is a gorges blue based purple , smells like men's cologne . I used about 3/4's of a tube and no mixing is required , you use it right out of the packaging . I have dark brown hair so in order to get the brightest possible results we bleached out the the sections of hair we wanted purple . 


  
( Processing 

 
(The Mastermind ) 

The end result is Exactly what i wanted . A deep blue violet . In doors is quit muted but out doors is bright and shinny . The color does bleed , after the first night i woke up with purple finger tips . I run my hands threw my hair quit a bit so i will be rocking dark nails until it stops bleeding . I have been told that it will fade into a steel blue color so a bit of gray, blue and purple but not pink . All in all a fair trade , would rather have a gray blue then a pink . This is after one wash :


It was very over cast this day so you can see the color is muted in low lights . At this point i am VERY pleased with the results . It is exactly what i was looking for . If you are looking to color your hair a bright color check out Pravana they have a great selection and they look great . 

Wish everyone a happy weekend , if you have used or do use there hair color please be sure to leave a picture in the comment section or link your review if you have one up , i would love to see your results and or different colors .
