Hollywood Haircolor by Celeb Colorist Tracey Cunningham
When it comes to the Oscars, picking the dress is only one part of the styling process. And, at the end of the night, you get to take the dress off. Your haircolor, on the other hand, is something that lasts much longer. As a celeb attending Hollywood’s biggest party of the year, there is no doubt that your color will be a topic of conversation long after the night ends.
That’s why so many celebs head to the experienced and talented celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham to take their color to that next level for the big event. Here are some of the color formulas and secrets behind Tracey’s Oscar-worthy hues.
Dakota’s high-fashion style called for depth and dimension when it came to her haircolor, so Tracey applied lowlights using Redken Shades EQ Gloss, making Dakota’s brunette lighter and brighter. The no-ammonia, no-lift formula acts as a glaze, color refresher and color corrector, creating a shiny hue against her light skin tone.
