What a pretty golden hue! Sent to us by Martin Rodriguez, stylist at Ooh la la salon & spa in Orange County, we love how the blonde transitions from a little bit dirty at the roots to a sunlit golden tone on the ends. The styling is great too. With all that length, the center-part creates a slinky seventies vibe while the ’S’ shaped swirls are perfectly placed to draw attention to the model’s lovely lips and evocative eyes. If you fancy a similar ‘do, Martin’s color formula can be found in the notes.

dimensional red

Natural red hair has a different distribution of pigment then blonde or brown hair. In other colors the pigment molecules sit close to the surface, but for redheads they’re buried deep within the strand. This means that redheads are less prone to natural highlighting because light has to penetrate much more deeply into the hair. It also means that when redheads do lighten they lighten more dramatically. When creating dimensional reds the best looks follow the same principles: minimal variation, high contrast.
