Q: Hello! I got my hair Ombré'd rather dramatically four or five months ago, and although I think it's beautiful, I'm getting quite tired of having to curl/style it every day.
I really like the burgundy/reddish brown colour that I've been seeing online, since it looks like the perfect shade for cold weather. What steps should I take to colour my hair into a rich burgundy shade at home?
I don't mind having the ends of my hair lighter, if it must be that way, as long as it still looks flattering. Thank you! — Amy

A: Amy, thank you for the question. The burgundy tone you want is gorgeous.
In order to get this look, you need to fill the ends of your hair. That means putting back the missing pigment that was lifted.
You need to put a red pure pigment on the Ombré'd ends for 15 minutes with 10 volume peroxide.
Then, you can put your desired burgundy colour on top. I would do 25 minutes on the base and mid-shaft, and 20 minutes through the ends so you'll have an even colour. It will look great on you!
