Alfaparf Acqua Trend Collection: Vapor

This stunning look from the Alfaparf Acqua collection offers elegant movement and exquisite color balance. The color technique juxtaposes deeper root and underlayer tones with pastel midsections to produce the effect of sunlit undulation. Cut for maximum body and a soft, face-framing shape, it’s polished to perfection for a salon-perfect finish.
