As cooler weather sets in, one of the hottest color trends this fall is ash brown. Unlike most brunette shades which are warm thanks to hints of red and gold, ash brown runs on the cool end of the spectrum with touches of silver, smoke and ash. So, if you’re looking to give your clients the ultra-cool tones they’re asking for, Redken introduces the latest in cool coverage technology with its Ash Browns available in Cover Fusion, Color Gels Lacquers and Shades EQ Gloss. Delivering blue-pearl reflection with up to 100 percent gray coverage, the new Ash Brown family helps keep clients cooler between appointments, and is perfect for color correcting clients with extreme brass.

Check out these beautiful brunette before-and-afters from Redken Artists Matt Rez, Rosa Cisneroz-Ngaumo and Jamie Hynek to cop the formula and re-create the look on your client to keep them looking cooler than cool.

Formula: Apply 06ABn Shades EQ Gloss and leave on for 10 minutes. The blue and pearl in this gloss neutralizes color to perfection.
Pro Tip: 6ABn can be mixed with Crystal Clear for a level 7 as well as if a client has orange and red tones that need to be cancelled.

Formula: Use Color Gels Lacquers & Shades EQ Gloss on Zone 1 6ABN + 10 volume, on Zone 2 and 3 Shades EQ 06Abn + processing gel developer.
Pro Tip: Really look at skin tone to see what ash family will complement and enhance your client. Whether you use Cover Fusion or Color Gels Lacquers, both are incredible with gray coverage. I love that it has the Refresh to following with Shades EQ Gloss. The new Ash Browns really are unique because a lot of times we don’t get to keep it as cool as our clients would like when it comes to covering gray. This really does give you a super-covered, super ash cool finish. They’re my new obsession.

Formula: Gloss through Zone 2 was equal parts Shades EQ Gloss 06ABn and Crystal Clear.
Pro Tip: The new Ash Browns are great. However, since they only go up to a level 6, I love incorporating Crystal Clear to get the correction at level 6, but have the final color reflect lighter.
