Water color 🤘🏼 I've had this idea in my head for a while now. We used 4 misting spray bottles for this application. (We have it up on the ig live if you would like to go back and watch). We used all @pulpriothair colors in Velvet, Nirvana, Lemon, Firefly, Candy and Cupid. We diluted all with water and I'm so excited with how it came out! She had to run to work so we will get all the styling done tomorrow 😈 #colormisting
We can name about 100 different hair color trends. There are ones inspired by Starburst, sunsets and even sushi. While we could spend all day obsessing over the pretty pastel colored dye jobs, what we sometimes forget about is the amazing techniques that go into creating them all. We’re all familiar with ombre, but it’s time that we get acquainted with color misting, because the watercolor-like technique is blowing up on social media.
Allure reports that hairstylist Stephanie Lawrence is the genius behind the technique. Lucky for us, she posted a full-length video on Instagram of how she achieves the perfect airbrushed color mist look. Spoiler alert: It involves some unconventional tools.
Full length video of my #colormisting technique! We wanted to mimic a watercolor painting and have the colors seamlessly transition into each other. I used all @pulpriothair for the color and diluted each with water. The bottles and paper foil can be found at @saloncentric ! What do you think? Will you try it?!

To get a perfect blend of colors, Stephanie uses hair dye (Pulpriot Hair) that has been diluted with water. She then uses a spray bottle to apply the color to the hair to create the dreamy blended effect.
Left side of my graffiti project.💜 How did I do this you ask? With 5 misting water bottles (except mine don't mist for some reason, they were shooting out in a straight shot), water bottle default turned into something magical! 💜 painted with @pulpriothair color + @brazilianbondbuilder & @framarint brushes. #riotsquad
Stephanie revealed that she was inspired to create the look after one of her fellow hairstylist friends created a similar look using an airbrushing machine. Stephanie wanted to come up with a way to mimic the technique without the fancy gadget, and the color misting technique was born from there.
It’s something that you could potentially try at home as long as you have spray bottles. The only thing to remember is that because the dyes are diluted with a bit of water, they will not last as long. However, that just means you’ll be able to experiment with more different hair looks each time one fades away. Who’s ready to get their spray on?
