This rich silver-red glazed with copper is a gorgeous and unusual hue that’s both earthy and fashion-forward. Mixing warm and cool reds produces a vibrant, yet muted effect. A scatter of highlights, peeking through the glaze, adds texture to the surface. The sophisticated result looks like a gemstone seen in dull light.

Application: Apply very thin foil highlights using formula 1 to the top surface of the hair. Place highlights so that they fall vertically, and space widely for a scattered effect. Between the highlights, apply formula 2 roots to ends. Process for 30 minutes, then shampoo and towel dry. Apply formula 3 all-over and process for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and condition.
