    Covering grey roots

    I'm going to be doing me mums roots in a day or two, i only have 4.5 in colorissimo, when I really need a make a 3.5 so she dont get root glare as she is rather grey at the roots. If I was to do a mixing ratio of maybe 15ml 3.0 + 15 ml 4.5, would this take the depth down at all?

    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...

    Root touch up on balayage?

    I am newly qualified in to hairdressing and one of my friend has asked me to touch up theirs roots on the baylayage and to tone the blonde. What’s the best way to touch up the roots without ruining the balayage? Do I do normal root touch up and just comb the root colour through slightly?
