Get the Look: Tracey Cunningham Shares Redken Chromatics Formulas for Three Hot Celebs

In our May issue, celebrity colorist and Redken Creative Consultant for Color Tracey Cunningham  talked about spring and summer haircolor trends. Here, she shares the formulas for three of her current celebrity favorites—Minka Kelly, Kate Bosworth and Bryce Dallas Howard—using the new ammonia-free Redken Chromatics permanent color.

Minka Kelly

Brunette—Minka Kelly (Natural Level 3, Dark Brown)

“My clients are still loving Redken’s Illumination technique—darker roots with lighter ends," Cunningham says. "So many of my clients bring in photos of Minka Kelly for their hair inspiration.  She has such a pretty warm golden brown color that looks fantastic with her complexion. As the weather warms up, even brunettes like to brighten up their color for summer.”
