RED HOT:  Formula and How-To Plus Maintenance

Amanda Billardello from Glitz Salon in Rochester, Michigan helped turn up the heat on her client's haircolor.  And a sleek cut and shiny finish highlights the fiery red Billardello created following the steps below.

"To formulate the bright red I created a few different formulas using [email protected] and [email protected] by elumen," Billardello said. "I tested each on a white sheet of paper until I reached the desired tone I was looking for. I did not measure the color-- it was strictly created by eye. My client now uses the elumen shampoo and conditioner to keep her red vibrant and glossy!"
