Hi everyone just wondering what you all thought a good lowlight would be for someone who is totally afraid of warmth, she has a full head bleach at the moment but wants to move on to highlights and lowlights, thanks in advance! X

I whacked an 8-4 (beige in schwarkopf) vibrance on my full head bleach I done mine all over and it did drop to a 7 but was still really cool.

Just be careful you don't get tempted to put too much warmth in or it will go back natural tone. Ps mine was proper White/grey Hun! Xx

So if I translate that to wella or loreal beige it will still be noticeable at a base 8 as a lowlight because it will drop to a 7 also?? Xx

77/07 in color touch plus is a little bit less warm from what I remember.

Semi would be better as you only want to stain with colour basically. If you get me? I've done Majirel 7 + 8.13 as lowlights in really blonde hair. In future as well, if your client wants to continue with blonde highlights (guessing bleach?) and a slightly darker blonde/different tone some of the more ash Majiblondes lift really lovely. Or most of the Majiblondes look nice alongside bleach highlights. Depends on the hair you're lifting etc.

I used the base 8 semi bcos my hair was bleached all over I knew it would grab pigment and drop to a 7 which I wanted!

If you're using another brand make sure there's a beige tone I wouldn't go for anything too warm it'll take it back to natural. As in an 8-0/7-0. Xx

She was about a 7 naturally so I went for 7.13 and a bit of 7.31 as it was the only ones I had in loreal that would do, she was over the moon with it. I think if you went with koleston it would lift the root but use the same colour in colour touch on the mid-ends or maybe someone else can give a better idea??? Maybe even just use koleston xx
