Our fave color trend to come out of 2020? The ’90s color revival of chunky highlights and bold money pieces galore! Here’s why we love it: This high-contrast look is a go-to for the client who wants to maintain their dark base but add a pop of brightness. Or maybe it’s just giving us all of the nostalgic feels—back to the days of Spice Girls, Blockbuster Videos and Winona Ryder movies? OK, back to the hair.

2. Start by applying Formula A from roots to ends, leaving the front hairline out. 

3. Around the face frame, apply Formula A as a root touch-up only.

4. While the base color processes, hand paint the money piece with Formula B.

5. Process for 35 minutes or until desired lift is achieved, then rinse.

6. Tone the money piece with Formula C. Process, then rinse and wash with TIGI Custom Care™ Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.

7. Wes’s client was trying to grow out her hair, so he trimmed with dry-cutting techniques to clean up the ends using ARC™ Scissors 6″ Paragon II.
