Matrix SOBOOST Model

My newest color model is displaying new SOBOOST Color Additions from Matrix. I used 4RV+ on her new growth with Red SOBOOST and Copper SOBOOST for her ombre. What beautiful rich colors were achieved using the new SOBOOST color additions. The SOBOOST range can be used alone or in conjunction with both SOCOLOR and COLORSYNC lines from Matrix to enhance/neutralize any color.

This was the first time I had ever used the SOBOOST color additions, and the result was fantastic. I used them alone to see how vibrant they would be so I will now know exactly how they will brighten my SOCOLOR and COLORSYNC formulas.

What do you do when your client wants a change…and not a small change. A LIFE CHANGING CHANGE? You say yes of course (as long as her hair is healthy enough and you both have the time to achieve her desired look). I love using my artistic side so this challenge was one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it as well.

DSC02290  This was my client when she first walked in….I had alot of work on my hands to turn her into the “Phoenix”. I had to hand pick out her low lights, and her new growth and reverse ombre her hair to get it to look like this. I used different formulas of Matrix Light Master and VLight to achieve the healthy blondes you see below.

DSC02295 You can see reverse ombre means the lightest part of the hair is at the new growth of the hair while it gradually gets darker to a medium blonde at her ends. Her Occipital region I kept her natural level 6 for the final coloring stage as seen below.

Using the new Matrix Color Graphics Yellow, Orange and Magenta. I was able to Ombre everything above the Occipital from a yellow to a gradual Orange. I used the Magenta on the Occipital region for the contrast. Since Matrix Color Graphics is a Semi Permanent color you can see how shiny and healthy her hair is, even after all the chemical changes we did on her hair. I LOVE MY MATRIX. Stay tuned for more Mere’s Hair 🙂

RESPECT THE WHEEL!

I know you all love my art work so I decided to make a color wheel to use for reference. It’s also a great way to use multiple parts of your brain to help you remember the wheel. A great teacher once told me that if you increase the number of colors you used in taking notes your brain will recall the information easier. One side of your brain remembers the word your writting, while the other remembers the color. Activating both sides of the brain improves memory recall. So more colorful notes are more likely to be remembered.
