Warm, Caramel Sombré

To change up actress Jamie Chung’s look, Joico Celebrity Colorist, Denis de Souza created a decadent caramel sombré to add depth and movement to the actress’s dark, brunette locks. “Instead of harsh streaks and color blocking associated with last year’s ombré, this look is all about soft, seamless color that imparts natural-looking highlights on a darker base,” notes Denis. His secret weapon? Joico’s newest can’t-live-without product—Color Balance Blue Shampoo and Conditioner, which neutralizes unwanted warmth and brassiness in brunettes. Here, Denis shares his exclusive formula!
