Larisa Love Metallic Peach Color

When superstar colorist and Joico Brand Ambassador, Larisa Love, posted her new Metallic Peach look on Insta recently, her fans went wild. (Over 22,000 “likes” wild!) We were among the fans — especially because this unique, counterintuitive combo coupled Joico Color Intensity warm tones with metallic hues; an all-new way to introduce cool-loving clients to something peachy keen. Here, all the hot details, plus the secret formula Larisa whipped up…

Rich and rare…

“It’s rare to see metallic hues paired with warm tones, and I wanted to create something different from the norm,” explains Larisa of her ripe new technique — a luscious combo of bronze and peach. “I love it because it’s a great way of introducing these tones to clients who love to be cool, but want to transition to something different for a change.”

 

Who can wear it…

The color might be gutsy, but the ingenious piece is that it’s actually flattering on all skin types. The cool hues are perfect for darker complexions, while the warm hues are the ideal backdrop for paler skin.

 

The trick to the technique…

“I created this look using my “hairagami” technique with a color melt and overplayed babylights,” says Larisa, who made sure hair was lightened to at least a Level 9 first. (Important to cancel out the warmth with a toner while still maintaining a light blonde.)

 

Her secret formula…

Lift hair to Level 9 1/2
Pre-tone with Demi Liquid LumiShine 9sb + 9v with 5 developer.
Overtone with Joico Intensity Bronze + Peach + Rose + a dash of pewter
