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."

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.
"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."
