Going back to Monday night’s Met Gala in New York, we spotted this fabulous look from actress and model, Amber Valletta. When she firstarrived on the celeb scene she had the handle, ‘modern muse,’ courtesy of Vogue, who covered her in 1999. More than a decade on and her hair tells the story of a more mature and demure woman. Inspired by old world Hollywood glamor, this romantic, cascading shape is an on-trend way to wear textured looks. It is created with a pin-curl set, which is then brushed out into waterfall waves.

Today we have senior ARROJO colorist, Mariesa Ferraro, on hand to give us her expert tips and tricks. So, we just had to take a look at the wonderful world of Katy Perry’s hair hue. Nowadays, Katy gives Lady Gaga a run for her money in the avant-garde olympics, making her a great source of inspiration for anyone that likes a look that stands out from the crowd. The good news, if you want a dip-dye as dramatic as this, is that modern color innovation is making it a lot easier. “Whether it is royal blue, raspberry pink, or purple velvet this is a golden age of hair coloring,” says Mariesa. “With new technologies like Goldwell’s amazing Elumen service you can create everything from the most vibrant shades to soft, sheer infusions of tone.”
