How-To: Create Beautifully Bright Hair for Back-to-School

August 20 2018


It’s time to go back to school. Move to the head of the class with loose waves and healthy, shiny hair color that stays vibrant for up to 9 weeks when using the complete Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair® system.




  • Wash and condition with Ultimate Color Repair® Shampoo and Ultimate Color Repair® Conditioner. 
  • On damp, towel-dried hair, lightly mist with Ultimate Color Repair® Triple Rescue®. 
  • Utilize a light mist of Soft Sculpting Spray Gel® and work in from ends and upward.
  • Thoroughly brush hair with the 413 Sculpting Brush to distribute product evenly.


  • Pre-dry hair until it’s about 75% dry with the ExpressIon Dry®+ Dryer. With tension, brush hair in a downward motion with the 413 Sculpting Brush to create a nice polish.
  • Once dry, wrap hair around the Express Gold Curl 1" Curling Iron. Leave out the ends for a more natural feel.
  • Focus on the middle length to create a slight bend. 
  • Alternate the direction in which you curl each section of hair, toward and away from the face. 
  • Use Sectioning Clips to keep hair around the hairline away from the face while curling. 
  • Once curled, allow to cool completely. 


  • Once cool, break curls apart with your fingers to your liking. 
  • Finish with a light mist of Soft Spray® Finishing Spray.
