    Shades eq formulation help - platinum to natural blonde

    Hi all! I’ve been using shades eq for around a year, and I’m loving it but I’m not as educated with it as I am with L’Oreal. This week I’m planning to return my friend from her current level 10 scalp bleach to a dimensional, natural blonde. I’m happy with the technique I’ve chosen - half head...

    Hi, my client wants to even out the colour and dark Auburn brown colour… I am planning to mix wella illumina 6.0 +7.43 in 50/50 formula proportions and use 6vol 20% developer welloxon. Should I start applying at the roots? Go all over or start from the lighter parts? - apologies If silly...

    Lifting and depositing

    Hello! I am wondering what will happen if I have a client at natural level 5 and I use 20 volume with level 8? Obviously that developer will not give me enough lift for her to reach a level 8 so what will happen? The scenario I am faced with is having a client with a natural root of 5 about 1.5”...

    Fixing gold mids and ends to match platinum roots

    Hi hair people! I have a new client who has bleached at home and has gold banding throughout due to bleaching over previous color. I’d say the mids and ends are 8G, roots are level 9. Would you attack this with back to back foils, leaving out the roots? And then going back and doing the roots...

    Auburn hair with dark ash blonde roots, how to go back natural or blond?

Then at another salon, I asked for dark ash blonde and ended up with a dark dark cool brown. Eventually that faded to auburn. Unable to continue...

    Scalp bleach to balayage + Wella Color Touch Plus

    I have a client who is a level 10 (on scalp lightner) who wishes to return to her natural level (a 6) but with lighter highlights predominantly to frame hair face. My plan is to do foils (most likely a T-section) and then use a demi permanent colour in-between to smudge her roots into the...

    Discoloured hair help

    My hair is naturally black and throughout the years I’ve been red or blonde highlights/balayage. A few months ago I had balayage that went very orange and the orange would not lift so I decided to go back to my natural color and I used Montibello Cromatone 1 with 10 vol. This was back in March...

    Platinum hair color correction suggestions please!

    Hello, any suggestions on how I can color correct this? I want to use Olaplex #1 in Joico Vero K-Pak Creme lightener with the lowest amount of developer possible. I'm thinking it would be best to bleach the yellow section first, and then the roots separately. Not sure what volume I should use...
