How-To: Ruby Rose’s Dimensional Brunette
Let’s be honest, it doesn’t really matter what color Ruby Rose is wearing on her head—she’s pretty much always the sexiest woman in the room. But there’s something about her new shade—a deep, dimensional blend of chocolate and ash—that just might make it our favorite Ruby color yet. And it’s also making a serious case in favor of the summer brunette.
The colorist responsible for her sultry new shade? Brant Mayfield of Chris McMillan The Salon. Here, Brant reveals how he achieved Ruby’s new ‘do!
Who Did It
1. Brant applied Formula A, starting in the back and working his way forward—applying from the scalp, 1 inch out. “I like the -62 tones because they are chocolate ash, so they cut the warmth but keep the color multi-tonal,” says Brant.
2. Once this initial application was complete, Brant went through section by section again, combing the color through to the ends and applying more color until all of her hair was completely saturated. He then processed for 30 minutes.
3. Brant rinsed, shampooed with René Furterer Okara Radiance Enhancing Shampoo, then rinsed with René Furterer Lumicia Illuminating Shine Rinse, making sure to evenly saturate the hair. He then rinsed with cool water (to create an intense shine) and conditioned with René Furterer Okara Radiance Enhancing Conditioner, leaving the conditioner on the hair for a few minutes before rinsing.
