If your clients are looking to spice up their color, try transitioning them into a multi-dimensional redhead! "With this model I took her flat brown color and painted in variations of golden copper and copper red which play off each other to create a lot of movement in her hair," says Celebrity Stylist Marie Ferro who created this look. Starting with Level 7 hair, Ferro first clarified the hair with Malibu C, and after drying the hair, misted in Goldwell's Pre-Color Spray. Wondering how you can achieve this look? Check out the formulas and steps below.
