First, do a full set of highlights using a low volume developer and thin weaving to break up the solidity of the base and add dimension.

The stylists at RA_Bar Beauty in West Hollywood are forecasting this season's big color trend: velvet hair.

"Think the deep tones of velvet with the light tones that velvet has when you brush it in the opposite direction," they say. "Hair will be mimicking the tones of velvet this season. We will be seeing rich bases mixed with lighter bits in the same tone. It’s subtle and delicious. Especially in California; women want their hair to look rich in color, but still look like it has seen the sun."  

RA_ Bar Beauty is founded by three master stylists that bring different strengths and over 30 years of experience: Whitney Olson, Audrey Rae and Kennedy Van Dyke.

Celebrity clients have included: Jenna Dewan Tatum, Michelle Trachtenberg, Pamela Anderson, Naya Rivera, Rumer Willis, Lydia Hearst, the Victoria’s Secret Angels, The Pussycat Dolls, Brianne Howey, Hilaria Baldwin, TV favorites Sharna Burgess, Allison Holker, Kym Johnson, Emma Slater from Dancing with the Stars and more!

You can achieve velvet hair by starting with almost any solid base color. RA_Bar Beauty's model is a natural level 4 brunette. Flip through the slideshow and learn how to achieve the look.
