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.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
