#3. Riley Keough’s Dark Chocolate Brunette

Renowned celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham (@traceycunningham1) says, “Riley is no longer a redhead; she’s a brunette.” Tracey continues, “Her hair might photograph black, but it’s a deep brown—and fun fact, her grandpa (Elvis Presley) always dyed his natural blonde hair dark, which was so iconic.” 


Riley’s brunette formula:

  • Hairline: Redken Cover Fusion™ Permanent Color Cream 6NaBn + 5NN + 10-volume developer 
  • Base: Cover Fusion™ 4NaBn 1/4 + 5NN 3/4 + 10-volume developer
  • Gloss: Redken Shades EQ™ 06ABn + 05N + Shades EQ™ Processing Solution


Tracey’s color care trick:

“I apply Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector and No.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment at the same time,” Tracey explains. “To avoid diluting the product I like to use No,0 to wet the hair slightly, then I apply No.3 right on top of that.”
