    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...

    Matrix 6A turned green?

    would say that you need to add a little copper to the 6. When going 2 shades or darker the hair needs to he filled or it goes green or muddy. NEVER use ash when darjening more than 2 shades. For a level 6 need to use copper or gold in your natural. Look at the levels and see what your target...

    High lift tint yes or no?

    Damit. I was hoping that maybe we could get away with it. Would I still need to lift to yellow and then should I tone down with 8 and a tinny bit of 8.3 ? I did explained that her roots wont be that bad as were only use 20vol and with cuts each taking all the old colour out it will be in not...

    High lift tint yes or no?

    My client is a level 5 and I have been doing bleach & 20vol on scalp bleach. Her mids and ends were stripped from artifical colour which has has really dryed her hair out . Now were happy to be a look like a 8.32 colour. Question is. Would a 8.1 tint with 40 vol achieve this? Or do I need ti...

    What would you do here?

    Just want it to match her roots with her mids and ends keeping the most of the warmth. I feel bleaching would make it too light as her base is about 6/7. What would I use?? Would a 9.1 & 30vol work? And tone mids and ends with a 8.21 10vol? Think a few baby lights would be nice to break ot...
