hey chris!! i have a question about the first technique....i use majirel color, and was always told by them and by other stylists not to use their mixers or concentrates alone, to always mix with color....but in this technique you are using blue and violet concentrate alone, or i think mixed with developer.... am i correct that you are not mixing with color? just using it straight? if so, the possibilities are endless!!

Hi Hair Diva,
Yes, it's just pure mixtone mixed with 3% developer to get the strongest result.

It gradually fades over 6 weeks and you can apply a different set of colours next visit! If you give this one a try, take some pics and post them here so we can see your artistry!

Hi Hair Diva,
They're available everywhere, try Walmart or a local dept. store.

If you google "icing syringe" you will get loads of results where you can buy online. They're about $5.

Good luck!

Chris --
Hi! I\'m a new member, fascinated by the posts about your highlighting techniques w/out foils. I may not be familiar with how the links would look, but I can\'t find the links mentioned.
Can you please post or send?
Thx!
