Until recently, clients with dark hair have often felt like wallflowers at the highlighting party. Dark shades often become brassy when lifted, and highlights can appear dull, flat or downright invisible. But metallic haircolor shades have changed all that. Shades like the new Majirel and DIA Richesse Metals from L’Oréal Professionnel offer high reflect concentration, intense visibility and shine.

It’s a new day for dark brunette clients—now they can be the life of the highlighting party! Here’s how to create this sparkling violet result!
