BEFORE you begin mixing color, have you examined the current level and
tone of your client's ROOT AREA? If not, you may be in for a very unpleasant
NEVER THINK that applying a shade of MODERN, BRIGHT RED hair color
to white hair will create a "soft", "natural-looking", result! The color WILL
COVER the gray.. but because that hair is white.. without pigment the hair
will be VIVIDLY BRIGHT RED... Not what you and the client desires!!!!
When creating a lovely red shade on gray hair, or on hair more than 20 percent
gray INTERMIX the desired red shade with a .0 (NEUTRAL) shade at the
same or similar level as that red shade. 50% gray//50% neutral. 20% gray,
20 percent neutral. 80% gray.. 80 percent neutral. Use 20 volume developer
and process those gray roots for 45 minutes at room temperature!!!!
The color you see in a photo is almost NEVER the color you will achieve when
applying it to YOUR client!!!! The difference between do it yourself hair color
and salon hair color is Y O U! B
