This image comes from the recent ARROJO collection, Juxtaposition. The combination of a broken edge and a classic shape creates a look that is both timeless and modern. The fluid lines and textured ends are accentuated with a soft, rosy hue. A subtle red with hints of pink and copper, this dusty tone is both feminine and grungy, perfect for playing up the dichotomies of the cut. Get formulation and application tips for the bespoke tone in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Tips: Tones that contain elements of both warmth and coolness are easiest to achieve on a level that is close to the person’s natural color. Trying this hue on a darker haired client may produce a result that is too bright or warm. For an even more subdued result when lifting, add a bit of 7SB.

Formula: (on starting level 7)
