Colour choice with Wella red tones?

Hey, just wondering if anyone can help me out with this..
So this is my clients hair at the moment.. and she’s wanting to go a bit darker/redder and more of an intense red colour on the ends (uploaded pics). She’s hating how light it’s faded and wants to be more dark than light.

Last time we did 6/7 + 4% for the root, but she’s wanting more reddish tones.. also I’m aware that her natural root will grab to something red and the rest of her hair has colour build up.. and I’m aware colour doesn’t lift colour but I’m thinking something over the top of the colour to give it almost a sheen/gloss of red similar to the pics.

Also would I need to break the bottoms up with some Of the dark colour? And then put the red in with a toner? Or could I pull both colours through the ends?

Thankyou in advance!
Any help is much appreciated I haven’t done any work with reds! :)

So she likes a darker almost burgundy tone on her root, then more red through mids and ends?

What about prestain the lightened areas with a red mousse or semi dried in, then 5/5 with 4% roots, run through some areas straight away. Develop 20 mins, then 5/5 plus 1.9% through the rest.

It's the same reflect throughout with some darker areas.

Or if you want more definition, prestain, dry in, 5/5 and 4% on natural, 5/3 and a bit of 5/5 with 1.9 foiled to give a more streaky look then 5/5 with 1.9% on rest.

Just remember to apply enough product, and leave it long enough to be absorbed and oxidized properly.

Take a look at 4/75 for the root freehand some sections with this through the mid lengths and ends. Then with the hair left out apply colour touch 66/45 with 4%.

So I could pre stain with perfection /44 on the ends/lighter areas? Would 5/5 + 4% be intense for her natural? Would I put a colour on the darker/mids of her hair to get a more burgundy/red tone to it? X

Thankyou! Would I need to mix something different for her natural root and the darker colour/mids of her hair? Worried the root is going to look a little glowy? X

I would use 1.9% with the base colour because you're depositing only.

So to mix 4/75 + 1.9% for her natural root and 4/75 + 4% for mids/already coloured hair.. am I going to get darker/colour buildup/banding here or will it be okay? X

Thankyou! What about the mids/non natural roots of her hair would you colour over that as well so it has a red/burgundy tone to it? And would you pre pig with perfectos /44 or would it be okay to go in without pre tone? X

Yes, I'd put it right through and leave out the sections you want to colour red. And yes prepig with perfecton will definitely help even the pirosity out. It won't cling to the natural anywya so don't worry about that.
