    How do I go from a red head to a neutral brunette?

    Hey I've just done a test peace for a client her hair is very light bright red and this was the result with 7.1 ash so it's like a very warm brown. I've explained that we can strip the colour out but it may take a few strips or we can cover the colour with an ash brown but the red will always...

    Eyelash extensions and eye infection

    Hi I have lash extensions by lash perfect and my eyes in the morning are always slightly gunky (gross I know!) I wouldn't blame the lashes or you I just think when you have them maybe your more prone to it as your lashes are longer maybe they hold more dust etc which falls into your eyes?! I...

    Bleach bath-how do you do it?

    Yeah I've applied a permanent colour after and it's been fine. As for regrowth, I would just avoid that area and apply to mid lengths and ends

    Bleach bath-how do you do it?

    I think bleach baths are really good when done properly and use a low % so it's kinder to the hair. It's fab for just a few shades of lift and I find it's quite fast also!

    Bleach bath-how do you do it?

    Bleach Proxide and A deep cleansing shampoo mix and apply, I'd always try and use a low peroxide and do it slow 6%. I apply at the basin and just keep an eye on it all the time, as it can change pretty quick!

    Matted hair extensions

    I would get straight on to the supplier and demand some answers and see what they come back with - explain you want a second copy of a certificate to prove the hair is 100% human hair, I would then give her the copy and see how she responds. Once you've de matted the hair see how she gets on and...

    I had a lady that had this when we used to use a 12 base on her hair so she started to take piriton tablets and found it eased it completely you could maybe mention that to her? Also check her scalp for any scalp damage and the nape of her neck. Do a patch test with barrier cream or...

    Level 12 toners

    Colour doesn't lift colour so you won't be able to lift the hair without bleaching. Maybe do a bleach bath with a deep cleansing shampoo and a 6% then apply a toner to even out the colour as your only lifting 2 shades it shouldn't take to long. Or break the base 10 up with bleach hi lights on a...

    Colour help?

    I never used to bleach bath but I find mixing the shampoo peroxide and bleach together and applying at the basin works really well and you can see a change pretty quickly :-) as you only want to lift a shade it shouldn't take to long so won't damage a hair x

    Help! Skin test reaction, what options for colour?

    I would talk to your insurance and manufacture they maybe able to give you a disclaimer you can use. Disclaimers are used in all sorts of things. I wouldn't say that's it's admitting your doing a service you shouldn't be it should actually be saying that you are aware there is a reaction and so...

    In need of some advice, ASAP please

    Check that it is a semi permanent as If she mixed two things together it's probably a quasi or a permanent. I'd do bleach hi lights with 9% and then a 10.1 with 3% at basin toner and just keep an eye on it - it will probably take around 5-10 mins but keep a close eye as bleach can change very...

    Glowy roots on brown hair help!

    I used to get this problem on my mums hair all the time! I've found adding a 1:4 of a warmer colour to 3/4 base has worked great with 3% which just deposits as 6% lifts and deposits and you don't want any lift also recommend she gets it done a Little more often if needed? Some clients go 8+...

    Help! Skin test reaction, what options for colour?

    I've always been told off scalp routine is ok for people who react as the colour is diluted when rinsing. Ingredients In colour can be found in all sorts of things, different shampoos etc. Manufactures instructions will always state that a skin test has to be carried out at least 48hours before...
