Starting with unprocessed virgin hair additions, Morcia created a customized hair color for this look. She lifted the hair additions color first. Using a professional lightener, Morcia removed the color from the ends of the hair additions. She then added a hair color formulation created specifically for this model. The color uses different hues of brown and copper and it was applied using an ombre technique. The end result is a dazzling jet-black hair color in the top, cascading into a beautiful copper color at the ends.
