"Ninety eight percent of my clientele are colour clients," says featured artist Christa Bennett (@christathecolourista). "This is where my heart is. My longtime client loves to change her hair colour and is always a blast. She is a teacher and is also very active in theatre."

We loved the velvety richness and wine accents in this brunette color.  Get Bennett's how-to:

Natural Level : 6

Formula 1:  Schwarzkopf 3/4 4-90 1/4 4-99 10 vol or 6%

Formula 2 : Schwarzkopf Pearlessence P6-89 10 vol 6% 

Formula 1 was applied to her regrowth and feathered down into her midshaft. 

Formula 2 was applied smudging into formula 1, then through to the ends of her hair. 

NOTE: The ends of her hair were faded from a previous dark violet colour. We decided to deepen the base and keep her midshaft through to the ends on level, but still rich. 

And the result?  "Simple, modern, yet still classic. I love the depth and the pigment the new Pearlessence gives."
