All the colors of the rainbow are available at a hairstylist's disposal, thanks to Alfaparf Milano.

Emily Buffi, @buffithehairslayer, is a stylist based in Rhode Island. In addition to being known for her incredibly clever handle, Buffi's more than 20,000 followers love to see the stunning updos and intricate braids she creates on a regular basis. She's also no stranger to working with vibrant fashion colors and picking styles that make them pop.

Alfaparf is a match made in heaven for Buffi. In addition to their extensive care line, Semi di Lino, and styling line, Style Stories, Buffi is able to work with the brand's Revolution Direct Dyes.

"I've tested every direct dye in the box," Buffi says. "Not only can they be mixed, but there is also a clear if you want to dilute them. I can't put these down!"

Since Buffi has been using the Revolution line, she says it's shaped her outlook on business potential.

"Alfaparf's products make me want to expand my services," she says. "I love making videos with their color so much that I'm ready to start offering custom-colored extensions."

In this video, Buffi uses the Revolution line to color extensions she later used for a fishtail braid:

Step Two: Squeeze Direct Dyes on the table or bowl.  (No mixing required, Dyes are ready to go!)

Step Three: Start at the top + brush each color on, one right after another. Use your finger to blend each color together for a better transition.

Step Four: Flip extension over. (Try to lay the extension back down on coordinating colors). Repeat Step three.
