‘Tis the Season for copper hair color! What if your client wants to pair it with a bold color block?

Who is the ideal client for this look?

“Any client with a starting Level 4,” says Sahrita. This transformation begins with a global bleach-out: A darker starting level would mean an extra lightening process (if the hair can handle it!).

What can clients expect? 

The entire transformation will take eight hours—not an easy task! That includes a full bleach-out, two different glazes to create the color block and a rëzocut by Nubia Rëzo (@nubiarezo). “The color alone is $550,” says Sahrita, making the full appointment $800.

 

How can clients care for this look?

When it comes to at-home care, it’s always best to use cool water when washing color-treated hair. This will increase the longevity of the color along with a color-safe shampoo! As far as maintenance goes, Sahrita recommends her clients visit the salon in six-to-eight weeks to upkeep this look.
