The green hair color is rich and vibrant. Some shades remind of bubbly sea foam, while others resemble a pine forest after a spring rain. But there’s still no way to tell how each shade of green will wash out. They may fade to blue or even get pinky undertones.
The professional hairstylist and vivid color specialist Kate Harrison understands her clients’ frustration when they can’t find their perfect shade of green. “One thing I’ve learned as a vivid stylist is that NO brand makes a good deep green. So if you can’t buy it, make it,” the hair pro explains in her Instagram video. She shares her own deep forest green formula that transforms her client into a fairy queen.
Kate Harrison’s deep emerald is a combination of dark blue, teal, and yellow. The hairstylist confesses it took her a while to come up with the right shade of green for a lived-in dimension and magnetizing depth. “I’ve found that creating my own colors out of a more primary color base, makes a richer color than using anything straight out of the tube,” the hair color specialist clarifies.
Her experimentation with different tints and hues helps her craft a go-to formula that works for blonde and brown locks. For those willing to deepen the color even further, adding some purple to the emerald formula will do the job just fine. This shade of green becomes a true sensation, causing the comment section to erupt with praise. “Ugh I’m drooling over this color,” one person writes. “This might be my next color,” another follower comments.
The custom hair color formula can be used as a base color or a bright accent to the locks. For this transformation, the hair expert uses deep emerald shade to refresh the vivid balayage. The dark root color is blended into deep green locks through the mids for a smooth transition between the shades. The same shade of green, however, will look different on lighter locks. The deep forest green applied over platinum blonde hair, for example, would be much brighter.
Taking care of your vivids also guarantees that the new hair color will last longer, and you’ll enjoy it immensely. Add a color-protectant shampoo and a moisturizing leave-in conditioner to your unicorn hair care routine. Don’t forget about heat protection to prevent dryness and dullness. With these easy steps, wearing bright hair colors will be a bliss.
We all know that a good hair color formula is priceless. It comes through trial and error. But once you find it, there’s no turning back.
