Color It Like Beckham: An Interview With Posh's Colorist

Last year, upon the Beckham's much-anticipated arrival to the States, Celebrity colorist Johnny Ramirez welcomed Posh to her new home by "Californizing" that famous graduated bob to platinum blond levels.

Just this past weekend, Ramirez, who works at the Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills, gave the petite trendsetter's chic pixie some extra zip, and I've got the exclusive details on what went down. Check out my interview below, and look out for some more of Johnny's hair-color advice to come:

Is Victoria just as funny in person as she is on TV?
"Victoria is the most generous, warm person. She's considerate, and super nice — not just to me — but to anybody."

Can you tell me a little about what you did do enhance Victoria's chestnut-brown hair?
"After discussing what she wanted, we decided to keep her a brunette. Victoria's ends were faded to a reddish warm color — this happens to most brunettes. To keep her a soft, natural medium brown, I started with her roots by applying a permanent hair color. Once the color was done processing, I combed it through the ends to break up the line at the shampoo bowl. Then . . . two different types of toners were used to tone the warm ends. I always finish my hair color with a gloss to lock in the color and seal it with shine. That's what makes color look healthy, natural, and beautiful."

To learn more about what products Victoria took home with her to maintain her look,


What did you recommend to Victoria to keep her color looking fresh?
"Right now I've been playing around with the Davines shampoos. They come in different colors. For Victoria, I told her to use the one called Tobacco Shampoo ($22.50) and Tobacco Conditioner ($26.50) once a week. It doesn't have warmth in it, so it's more of a cool brown.

Anything else?
"I also sent her home with Davines Love Shampoo ($16) and Love Conditioner ($18.50). I love the citrusy smell — it's got a pomegranate smell, too. They (Davines) also have a Mask ($23.50). And those are the goodies I sent her home with."

I'm glad that "natural" colored hair is in. I'm so tired of seeing fake blonde when you know they're naturally brunette.

She's GREAT!!! I love the cool brown hair. Mine is soooo RED, perhaps I should use the Tobacco shampoos to get rid of some.

I wish she would grow her hair long again and come up with a signature style. That way I can copy it! I could never go short! But I do love her style. She looks great

I like this look on her, it's refreshing after seeing her a blonde/light brunette for quite awhile.

She is okay but I odn't think she is as pretty as everyone says. She seems nice though and I am sure she is gorgeous in real life :)

I love this color on her. It's more natural than her brassy colors she's been wearing since she moved to LA. I'm not a fan of the cut but I have to give it to her for being brave. I'd miss my hair too much.
