Vibrant, deep red hair color by Zotos AGEbeautiful Artist Mike Petrizzi is elegant with high shine that reflects light. Here he shares the formulas and application steps he took to create the look.


Natural level 5 virgin hair

Formula 1: 1½ oz AGEbeautiful 5RR Permanent Hair Color + ½ oz 5R with 2 oz AGEbeautiful 20-volume developer

Formula 2: 2 oz 5RR with 2 oz AGEbeautiful 30-volume developer

1. Apply Formula 1 to the root area only.

2. Immediately apply Formula 2 to the remaining midlengths and ends, evenly saturating the hair. Process 30 minutes. Rinse until the water runs clear, shampoo and condition. Using a slightly muted formula at the base and pumping up the vibrancy toward the ends of the hair ensures a balanced red with no sign of hot roots.
