Step-by-step: Ruby Rose's Vibrant Jade

Looks like GREEN is the new black! The VIVIDS hair color trend continues to make its way through Hollywood, this time on a stunning starlet who has made her mark with her role on Orange is the New Black. This past weekend, Australian beauty Ruby Rose revealed her new ‘do: a vibrant jade color! The green goddess transformation was done by celebrity stylist Brant Mayfield of The Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills

To prep Ruby for her creative color makeover, Brant first started with the PRAVANA Artificial Hair Color Extractor, a gentle, safe way of removing existing hair dye from strands to reveal a fresh slate for new color. Artificial Hair Color Extractor is a must-have for all stylists. Easily remove any oxidative color without ammonia, peroxide, bleach or formaldehyde and without lifting the natural base. Hair can be colored (even lightened) the very same day and can be used up to three times in one day to achieve the desired results. The best part is that throughout the process, Artificial Hair Color Extractor maintains the integrity of the hair!

To create the vibrant shade on Ruby, Brant pre-lightened her hair to a level 10, darkened her roots for a deep base and applied VIVIDS Green through the ends for an all-over, long-lasting vibrant color!
