Copper and Gold Highlight How-To from Joico

What’s the best way to liberate your client’s long locks and enhance her features? By creating lovely long layers, of course! Add in some bold copper, gold and red highlights, and you’ve got an amazing multidimensional color that is sure to wow. Creator Sue Pemberton applied a haricolor palette and placement inspired by the American flag. To represent the stars and stripes of the American flag, the haircolor placement features a star section of base color with vertical stripes of color placed around the star.
