Game of Thrones is ending soon and so is Emilia Clarke’s reign as both the mother of dragons AND a platinum blonde. Emilia debuted this rich brunette bob on the 2019 Academy Awards red carpet and we’re loving the dramatic light to dark color transformation by Virtue®️ Brand Ambassador Nicola Clarke (@nicolaclarkecolour). Get the color formulas and application details below! 

 

Inspiration: “Emilia returned to a rich brunette for the Oscars—a really rich, healthy glossy shade that is just a touch darker than her natural color. I used Virtue®️ ColorKick™ to amp the gloss and shine and maintain the health of the hair during the color process.” 

 

Then, Jenny Cho (@jennychohair) gave Emilia this red carpet-ready super sleek look!

FORMULA STEPS

1. Start by applying Formula A throughout, working in sections and securing in foils. “I used Virtue®️ ColorKick™ (the first-ever human keratin hair filler) to protect the hair during the color process and maintain shine in the end result,” shares Nicola.

2. In between the foils, apply Formula B to the roots. Process for 10 minutes, then pull Formula B through the ends. 

 

3. Wash the hair with Virtue®️ Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner to fight against damage and restore softness and shine.

 

4. Towel-dry and apply Formula C to the roots. Process for 10 minute, then apply Formula D to the midlengths. 

 

5. Shampoo the hair again, then apply Virtue®️ Restorative Treatment Mask and process for 10 minutes and rinse. Blow-dry and style as desired.
