If you are searching for a new and trendy color for 2015, the plush surface of velvet gives depth to bright hues, creating a shadowed surface with bright facets. This rich color reproduces this effect by combining dark plum and mahogany tones with a touch of vivid ruby. Get the formula for this luxurious hue in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Application: Thorough saturation is essential for this sort of complex tone. Apply color root to ends working in 1/4” sections throughout the head. When application is complete, re-check to assure that strands look damp and glossy. Re-apply to any dry spots and process for a full 30 minutes to ensure full deposit.

Formula: (on natural level 6)
