Haha I really would not know where to start, I'm unfamiliar with the entire range! If someone would take the time to explain the basics of each range ie what are quasi, difference with maji meche, contrast and rouge that would be fab. I know the tones for loreal as they are slightly different to wella. I am looking at booking onto a loreal colour keys when I can. Xx

What do you think of Inoa? I tried it out but just didn't like it, found it very flat and wishy washy and I don't know just not good in the hair if you know what I mean, saying that I only did try it a handful of times so maybe I didn't give it a chance ? X

Good stuff dondon!

We have two combination reflects.
Mahogany is Violet + Copper if you break it down you have red + blue + orange so the final tone is a red-brown.

Mocha are primarily cool tones, the brunette colours are a mixture of mahogany + violet + blue ash. The blondes are a mixture of blue ash, green and gold.

I tend to use INOA for most of my full head colours because of the softer result that you get, however if the client likes/ need a more opaque like with majirel I would stick with that. I did find some warmer colours were flatter on white hair when adding base but we do now have the golden fundamentals that should take care of that. You do need to use plenty of colour and have a good application but I think that the increased price makes up for it ;)

It would be good for a client that has been having demi permanent but is getting more white but still likes a softer coverage x

Check out the carmilane reds! They are really good for deep but still vibrant reds. I was surprised because the previous reds were quite soft.

Inoa is really lovely to apply. Such a nice consistency but I agree with you adam that you don't get that solid reflect that you would with majirel.

My go to permanent is majirel.
I trained with l'oreal and over the years I have worked in a couple of salons with wella & goldwell but l'oreal wins hands down for me.

Diarichesse & dialight have such gorgeous shades and they're so true to tone.
A friend of mine is a colour specialist so were always waffling on about l'oreal 😂

They're London academy is awesome aswel! I've been there a fair amount of times and inside it looks like the mode offices out of ugly Betty 😆
..you feel very fashionista while your there 👍

My only criticism (😱)

.. Would be that they don't have very vibrant reds/violets in the dialight/Richesse family. Which is a shame because with their technology they would be gorgeous!
Equally though, the formula's you can make with inoa carmilane/rubilane and clear work a treat 👍

I was so gutted when they discontinued 6.20 in majirel! It was a fave of mine 😍

Oh and one tiny criticism about l'oreal..
Not they're products or they're colours but they're reps are so disorganised!

Every one we've had come into the salon act as if they've just been getting on one the night before!

One even asked me what inoa was?!?
And whenever we make an order they're is ALWAYS something missing when we take the delivery 😡

I'd love to! I used to work for a well known chain salon (not mentioning any names) and they gave me a placement but unfortunately everything fell through with the manager at the time and there was a massive staff walkout..

I work for an independent salon now and the owner has said she wants me to go but it costs so much money 😢

I know right! For example, we may have ordered a majirel 6.0, if they don't have any they just send us a load of visual merchandising crap that we already have as compensation! Grr!
