Have a bejeweled addiction? Satisfy it with this gorgeous amethyst jewel melt created by Emma Hancock @masterpiecehair from Moriah Brandons Salon in Altamonte Springs, Fla. Emma originally saved her client from a brassy ombré and fulfilled her request for the violet melt. A seasoned pro, Emma knows the power of a stylist’s recommendation, especially for vivid colors—all of her clients receive instructions and product recommendations when they leave her chair. “So when the client returned I was happy to see that the majority of the color was still intact and still rich,” Emma told us at BTC. Need the details? Emma shared with us her formulas and application— Check it out!

 

The Price is Right
Emma spent 4 1/2 hours creating the Amethyst Jewel Melt and she charged $250.
