From Dark Brown to Ruby Red

Do You Have Dark Brown Hair which you want to take to a Brilliant, Vibrant Ruby Red?

Learn How in this Tutorial.

STEP 1: Use Foil and Lift the Hair using Brilliant Blonde Lightener and 30 Vol Developer.

  • Mix the lightener with the developer in the ratio of 1 part lightener to 2 parts developer.
  • Section the hair and tie up using clips
  • Start from the back and work your way around, as below
  • Use foil and apply your lightener mix generously, trying to really saturate the hair as well as possible.
  • If the hair is very dark, place your client under some gentle heat - it will help you lift quicker and better.
  • Aim to lift to a level 8 minimum - see picture below.

STEP 2: Apply a mix of 5.66 and Ruby Red with 20 Vol to the entire head.

  • Mix equal portions of 5.55 and Ruby Red.
  • These colors are really vibrant and will get you that vibrant red result you are looking for.
  • This time your mix will be 1 part total color used to 1 part developer.
  • Use 20 Vol developer this time, as the hair is already lifted.
  • Once again, really saturate the hair with the product.
  • Leave in the hair 30 minutes, then rinse.
