We are loving this INTENSE color created by Rebecca Taylor, Joico Advisor, from Pensacola, Florida, who was inspired by the chameleon and peacock for this HAUTE HUE look!

If you have a BOLD, BRILLIANT HAIR COLOR LOOK that YOU have created, share it on Instagram and you will be in the running to win a trip to NYC to attend the JOICO "Haute Hues" photo shoot event. Use @JoicoInsider and #JoicoIntensity so we can find you and your INTENSE work.

Beginning at the nape, create a one inch section and apply Formula 1 from roots to mids. Begin working up toward the front, alternating all of the formulas from roots to mids. Carefully wipe gloves between each section application. Once all sections are saturated, return to the nape and begin alternating the formulas on each section from mids to ends. Carefully "melt" the color where the two formulas meet in the middle. Work quickly and without foils.
