Hi. I'm Lea from Real Beauty here with Erin from Valley Hairs (??) downtown. She's going to show us how to do the bright on gray hair trend. She did it at the Danny Glow Spring 2012 presentation. It's a really fun way to play around with bright color without committing to anything or bleaching your hair. So the first thing to do when you're creating a spray on (brey?) look is to prep your hair. You want the ends of your hair to look nice and smooth, so you wanna take the dry shampoo and create a base for the color to sit on. This is specially important to do if you have dark hair because this will the color to actually show up. You have to brush it out a little bit. And just start spraying. So next you take your light blue colored spray. This is Jerome Russell temporary highlight spray. And I'm going to spray this towards the top of it. And then move in to the darker blue spray which is the be wild temporary colored spray. Kinda play with the gradation of it, and get it really light up top. And then go back in with the darker spray. Now that I have a great blue base in, what if I wanna change it to purple, so I'll get some pink spray to work that over the top of it. Layering it is half the fun. And you can always comb out and just rinse it off and start over if you feeling like you made a mistake. So building over and over the different layers is what's gonna give it that charismatic (Embrey?) effect. Color will last until your next shampoo, so feel free to leave it in for a few days and enjoy it. Erin said that wrapping your hair in fabric or loose bandanna while you sleep to keep the color. I's also say at this moment you got to put an old t-shirt around your pillows so you don't run the rest of stain your sheet. A big thank you to Erin for coming and showing to this fun trend.
