Salon Services: Horizontal #alicebands with IGORA ROYAL Earthy Clay

This season it’s all about upgrading bare beauty with deeper, brunette shades with total neutralisation! Showcasing exactly that, Schwarzkopf Professional’s flagship color brand, IGORA, has developed a beautiful shade collection – IGORA Ashy Cedar and Earthy Clay – within both the permanent IGORA ROYAL and demi-permanent IGORA VIBRANCE assortments. This means that hairdressers can embrace the dual application color method, using the same shades with ease and convenience!


To showcase dual application and the new shade collection, Schwarzkopf Professional’s Global Color Ambassador Lesley Jennison (@lesleyjennison), has created two in-salon services – this article takes a closer look at coloring with IGORA Earthy Clay.
