We all have those select clients who want to go bold! This crimson haircolor using Matrix Color Sync Vinyls is just the remedy.

Created by Constance Robbins, a professional hairdresser based out of Los Angeles, Robbins specializes in dimensional hair color, cutting and styling with a focus on long hair.

Also a Matrix Artist, she works on US and Global projects alongside prestigious international artists on photo shoots, hair shows and video production.

Here, Robbins offers the formulas and step-by-step process she took to put together this look.

FORMULA A: 1:1 Color Sync Vinyls Midnight Violet & 10 Volume MATRIX Cream Developer & BOND Ultim8 Step 1
FORMULA B: 1:1 Color Sync Vinyls Crimson Red & 10 Volume MATRIX Cream Developer & BOND Ultim8 Step 1
FORMULA C: 1:1 Color Sync Vinyls Rose Copper & 10 Volume MATRIX Cream Developer & BOND Ultim8 Step 1

Create a center parting from the front hairline to the nape. Next, take a parting across the top of the head extending from top of the ear to top of the other ear, secure sections for control.

Apply FORMULA A to the scalp area then melt FORMULA B to the mid-lengths and FORMULA C through to the ends. Use the Kabuki Brush where the two colors meet to blur together for seamless transition from one to another.


Rinse thoroughly, apply BOND Ultim8 Step 2 for 10 minutes then rinse. Cleanse and condition using Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo and Conditioner.

Send your client home with a BOND Ultim8 Step 3 weekly for additional nourishment at home.
