Caramel with its lovely sweet flavor, warm smell, and luxurious texture provides the perfect inspiration for this rich dark blonde. This shade works on almost any skin tone, light or dark, warm or cool. Solid colors are a big trend for the coming year, and this shade is complex enough to hold up beautifully on its own.

Application: For an even shade, apply the color in two steps. Begin with a slightly cooler formula used on the 1/2 of hair closest to the scalp. Then follow with a slightly warmer formula pulled through the rest of the hair. After application is complete, process for 30 minutes before cleansing and conditioning with color save.
