Salon Services: Vertical #alicebands with IGORA ROYAL Ashy Cedar

Going beyond blond, today's global clients are also asking for on-trend cool and matte brown shades with a sophisticated finish. Thankfully a palette of beautiful, brunette tone directions have been added to both IGORA ROYAL and IGORA VIBRANCE product lines – IGORA Ashy Cedar and Earthy Clay – creating the perfect product combination for dual application methods! 

 

To celebrate the cool tone directions, Schwarzkopf Professional, together with Global Color Ambassador Lesley Jennison (@lesleyjennison), have developed two new in-salon services – this article focuses on using shades from the IGORA Ashy Cedar collection.
