By popular demand, we sat down for a session with Jane to talk journey, formulation, and inspiration.


Meet Victoria.

She met Jane back in 2013 when she was Jane’s model for a haircut photoshoot. After deciding she wanted to switch up her look, Victoria and Jane talked about a cut that would frame her face perfectly and express her creative side.

She loved her cut so much, Victoria decided she wanted to experiment with color. Jane, being a 2 time semi-finalist for Wella’s North American Trend Vision Awards, was totally stoked.
First Session:
Jane lifted Victoria’s natural level 5 hair all the way to a level 9 using Blondor Lightener + 20 Volume Developer until she was a level 9. After the lightening session, Jane colored Victoria’s base with Illumina 9/43 + Koleston Perfect creme developer 30 volume (1:1)  for 30 minutes. After her base, she went through Victoria’s hair with weaved sections of Wella’s Instamatic’s Pink Dream, Smokey Amethyst, and Muted Mauve with Color Touch Emulsion 1.9 vol developer (1:1).

Victoria rocked the color for about 3 months before she came back to Jane to go lighter & brighter!
Second Session:
Jane retouched Victoria’s regrowth with Blondor Lightener + 20 volume developer to make her whole head an even level 9. After the lightening, she went through on the base with Wella’s Color Touch Special Mix 0/68 and 0/56 + Color Touch Emulsion Developer 1.9 (1:2) alternating both colors in using pivoting radials around the head, and front was predominantly /68. She let this process for 20 minutes and after,  went through Victoria’s hair again with Wella’s Instamatic’s Pink Dream, Smokey Amethyst, and Muted Mauve, for 20 minutes with Color Touch Emulsion 1.9 vol developer (1:1), but predominently Pink Dream. After the color was finished, Jane went back and “sealed” with Sebastian Clear Cellophane for 20 minutes under heat to promote longevity of the color.

The process in its entirety took 7 hours, but was more than worth it. After the color was complete, Jane finished the look with a textured bob and fellow stylist @hairjames gave Victoria her intricate designs.


“It’s fun. I love clients that like to change it up like that. I like to be creative and to think outside of the box. I like to stretch the creativity and to test myself. ” -Jane


Amazing work, Jane!

  1. The special mix colors- it says they were alternated. So they were not mixed together? /68 +1.9 and /56+1.9 or equal parts /68, /56 +1.9
    Thanks for the blog!!
