Rachael Urrico (Rachael_devacurl) of the Devachan Salon in NYC, specializes in curls, color and the DevaCurl Pintura Coloring technique. Here, she got to put all of her expertise to work on one head of hair.

"This client was looking for an even vibrant red," Rachael says. "She arrived with three different shades and a dark band directly around the mid shaft of her hair. The re-growth is a natural level 7, mids were darker red and the ends were an oxidized copper."
