  • Formula C:

Everything is better in color! And no one knows this better than stylists and BTC Brand Ambassadors Cassandra McGlaughlin @cassandraplatinum (winner of the #ONESHOT Hot Shot Award for Transformation Shot of the Year) and Dominique Limone @limonetree. And to prove it, they recently created this gorgeous, antique rose gold blend.

 

What’s so special about this look is not only its dynamic, rosy color, but how multidimensional and naturally the colors are layered together! This was achieved using Davines Flamboyage Meche Strips. Because of their self-adhesive nature, they allow you to grab spontaneous pieces of hair—making any color natural and random! Davines Flamboyage is also see-through, so it eliminates the risk of over- or under-processing. Best part? It provides a quick, clean removal that doesn’t disturb your carefully-crafted color.

 

Here’s how Cassandra and Dominique were able to create this sweet, sexy antique rose gold without the hassle!
