Since the early 1990’s Aura Mae has been working heavily with direct dyes. Her salon is known for incorporating crayon colors into looks that work for regular clients, not just kids and rock stars. She will show you how she does it and will also display test results of colors from different manufacturers so you can compare them side by side for color, shine and durability.
