    Grey

    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. We are now thinking of taking the bleach h/l right to the root so that there isn’t such a contrast...

    Incompatibility test

    I haven’t actually got a client I just wanted to prepare myself with all of the home dyes going on at the moment. So colour fresh in Wella would be ok?

    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. I know some of my clients will of ‘attempted’ to colour their own hair during isolation. Do...

    Grey coverage

    Hi This is my new client. I use Wella. She has previously had half a head of highlights and lowlights but now wants the underneath colouring which is fine. My plan is to bleach H/L and L\L the underneath with 7/07 and a little 6/0. Now she is quite grey through the top and especially on her...

    Wella gloss

    Ah that’s interesting! I do always use the correct developers and never buy a cheaper alternative but just wondered with them both being wella products :) thank you... again :)

    Wella gloss

    Yes that makes sense. Can you use KP pastel 1.9% with colour touch as it is the same strength as the colour touch developer or is it completely different?

    Best UK keratin smoothing system

    I have recently used a product called 72 and it’s brilliant. I have used it on extremely curly hair, almost the same texture as Afro Caribbean and the results are amazing. My client doesn’t need to straighten her hair :-)

    Wella gloss

    I have a slightly different question with regards to the developers. Do you tone with permanent or colour touch? I tend to use colour touch however someone made a very valid comment which was- wella pastel 1.9% is for toning with koleston perfect level 9/10 so surely you can actually use the...

    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...

    Colour Touch help

    How would you personally get around the fact that CT is supposed to be applied to wet hair? I am h/l and l/l so it’s pretty impossible to do it on wet hair. Would you recommend using an 8/73 rather than a 7/73 (or mix both?) I don’t want it too look too dark, it’s mainly to break up the mid...

    Colour Touch help

    Perfect thank you so much! I did think 7/03 may be a bit muddy with there being /0 and don’t want it to look flat. Thanks again!

    Colour Touch help

    I am also going to do highlights as she has about 3-4 inches of regrowth, and I will finish with a root tap to soften the grow out giving a lived in look

    Grey blending

    What would you colour it with first? Or do you mean foil the white first with a tint, say a level 9/0 with 6% to deposit colour. Bleach h/l the rest and then put the base 9 toner all over?

    Grey blending

    I have a new client with a level 6 base. She has previously had highlights and she is wanting to gradually lighten her hair to blend with the grey she has here and there. She does however have a really white streak on her hairline. I plan to bleach h/l throughout however when it comes to the...
