To achieve the look, Aponte transformed his model's hair from a natural level 7 blonde to a sultry mahogany accented by vertical slices of indigo, magenta and hot pink. "I was inspired by the velvety evening sky at dusk," Aponte says. "I noticed how pops of violets and luminous fuchsias hinted at their existence while blending into darkness, and I wanted to recreate the impact of this subtlety with hair color."

Aponte's in-demand classes focusing on his innovative approach to hair color placement are designed to educate and inspire colorists of all experience levels.
