How-to: Achieve This Fiery Sunset Red Hair Color

Lauren Salapatek | September 15, 2014 | 10:20 AM

Kenra Color introduces its Fall/Winter Artistic Collection: Horizons At Dusk. This collection harmonizes the subtle delineation of tones and strong diffusion of light with a versatile color palette from rich brunettes to coppers, to reds and golds.

“As each day closes, the sun fades into the horizon revealing a smoldering affect of color tones. Just before dusk, these tones meld the strong diffusion of rays of light from the disappearing sun and the darkness of nightfall. These unique characteristics inspired four very customizable techniques and thus we close the year with our Fall/Winter Artistic Collection: Horizons at Dusk,” says Robb Dubré, Kenra Professional senior artistic director.

The collection consists of four looks: Smokey Sunset, Sienna Sunset, Desert Sunset and Fiery Sunset. “The Horizons At Dusk Collection offers easily replicated color placement and techniques with a versatile range of relevant, wearable haircolor that can be accomplished in 5 steps or less," says Dubré.

Here, Kenra Color provides you the steps on how to achieve the "Fiery Sunset" color:
