Hair Color How To: Fiery Sunset by Shonda Broadus

Colorist Shonda Broadus recently created this gorgeous, multidimensional look for her client. Bold, hot pink pops against bright, orange tones and subtle hints of violet for a result that is simply stunning. Below, Broadus shares her color formula for recreating this look.

Get the Look:
Says Broadus, "I used Schwarzkopf 5/99, 5-0 and 30 vol. on [the client's] natural level 3 roots. I then pre-lightened her mid-shaft and ends with Schwarzkopf Igora Royal Bleach and 30 vol. while her roots were processing. (Total processing time was 35 minutes.)

"After rinsing and towel-drying, I applied custom mixes of PRAVANA VIVIDS and did a color melt (Magenta/Wild Orchid, Neon Orange/Yellow, Pink/Clear, and Orange with a pinch of Red). EmBee Meche was used to isolate the colors.

"I let it process at room temperature for 20 minutes, then rinsed, shampooed and styled."
