Let me just say, I am OBSESSED with this redhead I got to do today! Alex and I have been on some fun color adventures, but this glorious Ariel red is one of my top all time favorite reds. Look at that dimension! Plus Alex is freaking gorgeous and has such an uh-mazing head of strands… it’s enough to make any hairstylist weep for joy.
I wish I had gotten a BEFORE PICTURE!! Agh!! One of the most horrible things ever!!! But she came in with the faded red we had done last time, and it was not in terrible shape. It had faded of course, to about a level 8 copper red. She had about an inch of natural growth, a level 5-6.
Because her regrowth lifted so warmly last time, I used an 8R + 8RV PM, and did a partial highlight with 10 vol to brighten the top. After she was washed, and partially dried, I did a pravana red and wild orchid mixture, allowed to set for 30 minutes, and then wa-laaaaaa! This beautiful, magical mermaid!
