When Marcy McDonald, designer stylist at Tangles Salon in Wichita Falls, TX had a client request a more vibrant healthier hair look, she imagined Chocolate Cabernet-rich silky ribbons of brunette with a high gloss cabernet shine. It is Texas after all, so why not go big with exciting new color? Besides, aren't chocolate and cabernet a few of our favorite things?
"When my client Melissa came into the salon, she had not had her hair colored in three months. She explained that she wanted to go shorter and darker without sacrificing brightness and the health of her hair," says McDonald.
