Hello, I have a level 5 client who pulls orange. I try to get her to a level 8 but may have to drop her down to a level 7 to help lesson warmth. Using Wella I was planning 7/2 + 8/1 with a dash of /88 mixed with 20 volume. Any other Wella users out there have suggestions for lifting level 5s with the least amount of orange?

The underlying pigment of a level 7 is orange. You have to lift it higher to remove the orange.

In Wella the /1 tone is a grey ash that subdues but cannot neutralise anything.
/2 is green ash
/8 is pearl (blue).

I would look at Illumina 30g 7/81+10g 10/69 +40g 12%
Another option would be to bleach and tone the hair?
