A sinfully stunning raspberry melts beautifully into a dark, black violet creating a berry-toned ombré. “I always love the way color melts look, and this is one of my favorite melts to create,” says colorist Ashley Pac from Elaine’s Salon and Spa~aah in Torrington, CT. “My client came in with about an inch of regrowth, the midshaft was a faded coppery color, and her ends were almost black. Ashley shares that her client originally wanted to be an all over deep red, but instead of lifting the black out of her ends, we decided to just go for it and color her whole head. It turned out really cool!” Learn Ashley’s formula for this berry-rich hue!
