Before and After Ombre Hair with Nicole Chiu-Wang

Before and After Ombre Hair Color, Blonde to Red

Nicole came to Madison Reed to liven up her current ombre hair. As a busy CEO on-the-go in the fashion industry, she was open to trying something new and exciting by going red while also maintaining the ombre effect.

We used Trieste Red for her roots and mid-shafts. Its rich red mahogany tones helped to bring out the warmth in Nicole’s eyes and complement her fair skin tone. For the pre-lightened hair, we went with a Color Reviving Gloss to preserve her level of lightness and also help nourish and gently tone her colored ends. Barolo gloss was perfect for enhancing the red in Trieste and making her hair color really stand out, just like Nicole’s vibrant personality!
