2014 Oscars Beauty: Sandra Bullock's Beautiful Brunette

For the recent 86th Annual Academy Awards, Joico Celebrity Colorist Denis de Souza created a beautiful, rich brunette for Oscar nominee Sandra Bullock. Says De Souza, "The midnight blue gown Sandy has on, by Alexander McQueen, goes beautifully with her skin tone and her dark brown hair; the style of the hair shows her features even more and falls beautifully to one side as the gown drapes more to the other, which adds balance to an asymmetric design and creates a gorgeous overall look.”

Get the Look:
Natural Level: 4/5
Base:  Joico Vero K-PAK Color equal parts 5N + 5A + 20-volume developer.
