    I have a client with about 30-50% grey hair. I usually use wella 6/0 and it covers well but with the 4 month lockdown root it has only blended the grey and not really covered it. So the roots look a little lighter than the mids/ends I am thinking to add some tone next time to give full...

    Blending grey

    So I have a client with 70% grey around her hairline at the front/sides , she hasn’t had her colour done since January so there is a lot of regrowth. We usually do a root colour and foilyage H/L.

    Incompatibility test

    If someone’s hair test positive for metallic salts after doing the incompatibility test what do people advise clients to do? I would say clarifying shampoo and use colour with no ammonia e.g. colour touch? Then re test 2 weeks later?

    Incompatibility testing

    Forward planning for any hair disasters that may be coming my way! I have quite a large clientele base so haven’t had to take on many new clients and therefore haven’t incompatibility tested for a while.

    Wella gloss

    Can someone give me a little more info on colour touch gloss 0/00. If I wanted to add it to a colour touch tint to purely add a bit more shine do I have to alter the shade I am picking? For example, if I want a level 6 will I need to do a level 5 if mixing with the gloss as it will lessen the...

    High lift

    I have a client with previously bleached h/l which is a lovely ash colour and it holds the colour really well. She is naturally a base 8 and I was thinking of switching to high lift tint. Do you think 12/89 would lift as well or shall I stick to the bleach? Also If I use wella 12/89 for the...

    Wella grey help

    I’m guessing the lighter you lift the base up the lighter grey you get? I have a lady with base 5-6 so if I left it up so say 7-8 this would still work would it?

    Looking for a wella toner for a client with colour build up. She’s a base 6 but has coloured multiple times with permanent and it throws off a lot of warmth. She wants a lighter Balayage but understands it’s going to take time to cut through the colour, without damaging her hair! Does anyone...

    Wella Koleston

    I have a client with a natural base 3 wanting to go slightly lighter and add some tone. She likes wella koleston 5/75 but because she has white hair through the t section I am worried it won't cover. I have advised that I add a bit of 5/0 to 5/75 with 6% to ensure the white covers but have said...
