Red Velvet Cake is a rich delish delight of luscious red topped with a light creamy frosting.

Wella is famous for creating amazing hair color formulas.  They created a great step-by-step technique for recreating the eye candy of red velvet cake as an actual yummy hair color.

The result of their custom color formulation was contrasting panels of rich red.  The official name of their amazing color technique?  Red Velvet of course.
