Suite Caroline Salon x Free People: Lavender Locks With Sparks Hair Color

Need a splash of color? NYC salon Suite Caroline shows us how to get the locks we’ve been dreaming of…

All month, the talented stylists at Suite Caroline Salon in NYC have been transforming every-day hair into easy-to-manage ‘do’s, perfect for fall. Today, for our third and final tutorial, salon owner and color expert Lena is creating pastel tresses using Sparks Hair Color! We knew just the girl to take on our blonde-to-lavender journey – our graphic designer Alistair. Check out her transformation below.

Step one: Bleach is definitely necessary in achieving our pale, vintage-lilac color, so first step was to retouch her roots.



Step two: I then toned her roots with a light violet-pink toner, and the ends with a light pink toner by Wella.


Step three: Then, I applied Sparks Pink Kiss to her ends while the hair was still damp, so it deposited as a light pastel tone.





Step four: Let Sparks Hair Color work its magic, then style as normal!



To note*: The Sparks Hair Color box comes with full at-home directions!




Head into Suite Caroline any time before August 31 and get styled with the Sparks Hair Color or a Free People hair accessory. Pay for the styling, get the product complimentary!

A huge thank you to Suite CarolineLena and Alistair!
