Want Jess Ridleyy’s (@jessridleyy) Extreme Purple and Ruby Red look? Follow her step-by-step instructions and learn how to recreate her gorgeous ombre while moisturizing your curls at home. 

Get ready to ombre: 

Before you color your hair, make sure to prep your area for a mess-free, stain-proof experience. Here’s what you’ll need: 

Step 1:

Starting with the bottom half of your hair, apply Purple for Brown to your roots and crown. Work color down a few inches.

Tip: Make sure all of your hair is saturated with color before moving on to the next step

Step 2:

Apply Extreme Red to the bottom section of your strands, starting from the middle working toward the ends. 

Step 3:

Go back and blend the overlapping sections, making sure one shade blends into the next.

Step 4:

Repeat the process on the top half of your hair. 

Step 5:

Let the color sit for 15-20 minutes.

Step 6:

Rinse with cool water and squeeze excess water out with a color-resistant towel to avoid stains.

Step 7:

Air dry and style as usual. 

Tip: Make your new color pop by styling your edges too.
