All techniques Ruth Roche used for this cut are from PUREFORM METHODOLOGY, a guide on how to cut color treated hair. “PureForm Methodology looks at hair as a fabric and we cut according to the way that fabric is colored. It’s all about cutting for the color. Hair should be colored first, before cutting. All the products in this line give support and structure without dulling the color. Each product contains the “anti fade complex”.
