"My guest came in and asked for something bold, something to make her stand out and sing... she wanted something RED," explains Dominique DeFrancesco, colorist from De La Mer Salon in Bellmore, New York. "I showed her options that would suit her skin tone and eye color and... and when it was all over, she sang!" DeFrancesco finished the red canvas with a Goldwell Colorance glaze to add shine and to enhance the vibrant hues then applied Goldwell Dualsenses Color Lock Serum to lock color in and extend the vibrancy up to 22 washes.
