FORMULA: Ruby Mahogany Sombre Lob

Sarah Crews (@HairBySarahCrews), Kérastase Tech artist and stylist at Studio Gaven Haircolour Salon, Nashville, TN. created a rich dimensional ruby-mahogany on previously flat, overly saturated level 4 hair. "Hailey had not been happy with her color for a long time," says Crews. "Her hair was previously colored all over multiple times."

Here she shares the HOW TO:

Step 1: Balayage with Redken Flashlift and 30 volume ProOxide developer + Olaplex, creating a sombre effect.

Step 2: Process for 35 minutes. Rinse and shampoo.

Step 3: On her base, apply Redken Shades EQ Cream formula 6R & 10 volume at her regrowth area to about 2" out.

Step 4: Melt out with Redken Shades EQ Cream formula:  Equal parts 8Cr & 7Rr + 10 volume.

Step 5: Process 20 minutes. Shampoo with Kerastase Chroma Riche/ conditioner with Chroma Captive.
