Wella Professional Master Colorist Eva Scrivo loves luscious, rich color this season. Here, she gives a model a warm brunette shade created with multiple hues for added depth and dimension. Mixing up different formulas and volumes of developers allows Scrivo maximum creativity. “It is a wonderful range of brightness offering different tonal values and warmth in the hair,” she says. “This creates subtle variations without having to reformulate.”

“This season I love making brown interesting and gorgeous,” says Wella Professional Master Colorist Eva Scrivo says. “It’s all about shine, multidimensional color and a luscious finish.” To achieve these different hues, Scrivo not only utilizes different formulas, she likes to mix up the volume of developers.
