INTO THE DEEP DEPTH SHADING

On dark hair, try deep marine depth shading that’s bold, bright and beautifully blended. Pair with flowing waves for a color melt look that will bring out the shine in your aqua locks. To achieve these tones, your colorist could use the Koleston Perfect portfolio, which includes a whole spectrum of blue and turquoise shades that can be custom-blended to your ideal hue.
