I thought it would have more of a reddish brown color to it. Covered up the grey though. It was easy to use and no smell or burning.

I have decided to go with another, lighter color next time, probably Como. Because my hair is long, with lighter ends, the coverage of the permanent Lucca LIght Brown seems to be a bit too much, and too dark all over. That said, the product is wonderful, and my hair set very nicely afterwards, is very soft, but at the same time thick and healthy feeling. I may also try a permanent color at the roots, and then a gloss for the mid-length and ends when I color my hair again. I am very pleased with the customer service. The Colorists are friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. I happy to work with them to get the coloring process closer to just right, next time.

Want Red Hair?

Want to turn your look up to 11? Red color is your ticket to check-you-out hair. But you can also opt for subtler shades, like deep mahogany Firenze Brown or burgundy hair color Trieste Red. Coloring your hair red is definitely a bright idea—how bright you want to go is up to you.


Want blonde hair?

Blonde color runs the gamut from natural to striking. Ashy platinum shades like Roma Blonde deliver rock-star cool. Neutral blondes, like Capri Blonde, are easy to maintain and grow out. And ultra-warm honey blondes, like Sicily Blonde, are more on-trend than avocado toast.
