The fig has a dense meaty texture and robust flavor that are captured perfectly in its appearance. Dark skin, creamy meat and deep red juicy pulp give the fruit a fleshy, exotic beauty. A dark violet-brown hair color accented with tendrils of rosy platinum, this color shares its inspiration’s unconventional appeal. Complex-looking, but surprisingly easy to achieve this style is a perfect for the girl who has an unconventional, but understated aesthetic.

Application: Carve a moon-shaped section from the front of the head, curving from either temple to apex. Apply thin slices of formula 1 throughout this section, staying parallel to the outline and spacing at least 1/2” apart. Apply formula 2 between foils and to all remaining hair. Process until highlights are an even pale blonde. Rinse between foils, remove and rinse again. Shampoo and towel dry. Apply formula 3, focusing on lightened areas. Process 5-10 minutes.
