Pantone Color of the Year for 2022 is a custom-blended shade – a first for the company to create a brand new color for the occasion. Pantone’s Color of the Year, Very Peri, or PANTONE 17-3938 is described by Pantone as a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone.” Taking inspiration from this hue, Brooks & Brooks Artistic Director Marlon Hawkins describes why he loves the Pantone Colour of the Year and how to get the look. “Very Peri delicately mixes reds and blues to create a periwinkle vanish. This mix of cool and warm makes this shade unique and I love it.”
Get the Look
- Get a clean canvas with optimum condition, starting with L’Oreal Metal Detox to neutralise any metal buildup on the hair to stop breakage and give me 100% guaranteed colour results.
- For the global pre-lighter use L’Oreal Blond Studio 8 levels and lift for 50 mins. It’s important to pre-tone the hair to help get a perfect target shade, I used Loreal Dia-Light 10.02 to neutralise and vanish the raw lifted blonde.
- Colour formula for Very Peri using Majirel glow, L.22 (18g), Majirel Blue (2g) and Clear (10g) was developed for 20 mins. Glow has a beautiful shimmery finish that really brings this Pantone to life.
- Apply Redken One United and L’Oreal Tecniart Pli and wrap dry the hair with a paddle brush making sure there are no partings in the hair while smoothing out the length and ends. Then gently run the ghd Platinum iron throughout for a polished finish.
