Maggie Mulhern | July 8, 2016 | 12:25 PM

Well look who went red on us!!!! Apparently summer isn’t just about the blonde! Christina Aguilera (@xtina) posted this on her Instagram feed showing the superstar with a hot shade of copper. PRAVANA Artistic Color Director Vadre Grigsby, drawing inspiration from The Little Mermaid’s Ariel and the va-va-voom vixen Jessica Rabbit, put together the below formulas and technique using ChromaSilk Hair Color to recreate Aguilera’s radiant red locks. 

FORMULA 1: 3 oz. ChromaSilk 6.66 + 1 oz. ChromaSilk 6.34 with 10 volume developer

FORMULA 2: Equal parts ChromaSilk 6.64 and ChromaSilk 6.34 with 10 volume developer

*This color is formulated for a tint-back on very light blonde, level 10 hair.


Step 1: Apply FORMULA 1 in back to back panels throughout. 

Step 2: Apply FORMULA 2 to the remaining hair.

Step 3: Process for 30 minutes at room temperature.  

TIP: To maintain the color between salon visits, apply a custom blend of Color Enhancer Treatments in Brilliant Copper and Radiant Red once a week. The color depositing treatment will condition the hair while refreshing the color.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was.
