 Before After!

Joico Celebrity Colorist George Papanikolas recently took actress Ashley Tisdale from
bright blonde to a beautiful brunette. “Taking Ashley back to a rich chocolate brown required
a few steps because she had previously been so blonde," says Papanikolas. Here's the steps he
took to change her hair from light to dark:
  1. First, fill the hair with a soft golden copper to give it an underlying warm color
  2. Color the base color and lowlights with a rich chocolate brown
  3. Add a gloss of light caramel to give it great shine and subtle variation.

Base Color and Lowlights: Joico Vero Chrome 1/2 N6 1/2 G6
Gloss: Joico Vero Chrome G8 
 Joico Vero K-Pak Color
