HOW-TO: Glossy, Black Cherry Haircolor

By Lauren Quick | 08/12/2014 9:12:00 AM


Fall and winter often lead to clients desiring deeper, richer hues than their sunkissed spring and summer colors. Daisy Rosania from Aurelio Salon in Howell, N.J., adds interest to a darker hue with an accent color.

L: Before; R: After

Formula A: Goldwell Topchic 40mls 6% developer + 5N 15 mls + 5VV-MAX 25 mls
Formula B: Goldwell Colorance 5VV-MAX 15mls + 6VV-MAX 25mls + Colorance Lotion 80mls
Formula C: Goldwell Colorance Lotion 40mls + 20mls clear

STEP 1: Tap Formula A to new zone area.

STEP 2: Spray Goldwell Dualsenses Equalizer Spray onto remaining hair, midlengths and ends. Apply Formula B to that area and process for 25 minutes.

STEP 3: Rinse with Goldwell Dualsenses Color Fadestop Shampoo and Conditioner.

STEP 4: Apply Formula C to towel-dried hair. Glaze all strands with Formula C and process for 10 minutes.

STEP 5: Rinse, condition and style.

Don't forget to keep your Pinterest boards alive and well! Fall and winter boards are an opportunity to inspire yourself and others.

"Each time you create a new color and pin it on Pinterest, you are expanding your portfolio," says Patrick McIvor, artistic and TechniCulture director for Goldwell and KMS California.

"The larger your portfolio is, the more people will see it on social media, which translates to more people in your chair."
