Color- Correct Brunette Brass With This Perfect-For-Fall Technique



Using a Balayage and Color Melt combo transforms brass into a rich, multi-dimensional, multi-tonal look in one fell swoop.
Gina’s all about saving time — for herself and for her clients. “My technique allows me to lighten and dark simultaneously. You always want to get the most impact in the shortest amount of time.”

She gets those “pops” of color by “placing every single piece of foil vertically.”
Making sure all the hair is colored is super-important. And wielding a wide brush helps this happen fast. “It’s nice, because you can cover a lot of territory quickly,” explains Gina.
Using LumiShine here replenished and restrengthened the hair, thanks to ArgiPlex Technology, which delivers astonishing shine, color longevity, and nourishing protection for up to 30 full shampoos.
