This client came in with the traditional brown and blonde ombre. She was looking for a change, and decided to spice up her hair with a beautiful dark red-violet base with pops of a more vibrant red on her ends. The color line used was Richesse by Loreal Professional. To create this look I did 4.62 with 9 volume developer at her base and smudged it down about 3 inches. I let her sit for about 10 minutes and then pulled through 3/4 4.62 and 1/4 clear with 15 volume developer to give her that extra brightness. Let her process an additional 10 minutes. We also applied a treatment at the sink called Cristalceutic by Loreal Professional to help lock in her color, and give her a beautiful shine finish.
