Adding rich reds into dark hair is the perfect way to add a flattering color pop this season. Use darker hues to make it subtle, or, opt for a romantic touch with light pastels. Somewhere in between the two is this bright winterberry color from balayage specialist Mackenzie Myers (@mackpaintedthat), created to refresh faded balayage. Using a mixture of blush, yellow, purple and even a little turquoise ribboned throughout, the multi-dimensional, warm-toned look is bound to become a fast favorite. 

Get the Look: 

  1. Touch-up roots using Joico Lumishine 4NC and Rusk 10 volume developer. 
  2. Leave to process for 30 minutes, with Olaplex No.2 on ends. 
  3. Shampoo and dry. 
  4. On dry hair, apply a mixture of Pulp Riot Cupid, Sea Glass and Lemon. For dimension, alternate between pieces of Jam mixed with Lilac, and straight Blush. 
  5. Process for 30 minutes and then rinse with cold water.
  6. To style, add waves with a one-inch ghd Gold Styler.
