    Client was lv 4 wanting a cool level 6 colour. She had about 10% grey I didnt not have any 5N so I used 3/4 6.22 & 4n plus a few drops of gold concentrate with 20vol.. My thinking was the .22 would nutralise all the warm tones while lifting and between the 4 and 6 we would end up with a cool...
