2. Choose a Blue Hue
There are so many ways to go navy blue with Wella (and that’s an understatement). Here are just some of our favourite routes if you’re in need of mixing inspiration…
Using Koleston Perfect: Special Mix 0/88 is a cool cobalt blue that’s daringly bold. By mixing it with 0/00 Clear, you can make it softer, while adding a touch of black, grey or silver tones will give it a navy edge.
Using Color Touch: Similar to Koleston Perfect, Color Touch features a blue that’s numbered 0/88 in its portfolio, which you can blend with other deeper hues to produce a classic navy.
Using Color Fresh CREATE: New Blue in this semi-permanent range may look too bright to be navy, but by mixing it with the Tonight Dusk additive, you achieve a darker, more muted tone. The more you add, the deeper the finished look will appear.
Using Shinefinity: Now you can glaze the way to blue locks. By mixing the 00/89 Blue Booster with cool greys, such as 07/81 or 05/98, you’ll unlock a softer, smokier take on navy hair.
3. Finish with a Clear Glaze
Navy blue hair looks its best when it’s impossibly glossy, so suggest your clients complete their service with a clear Shinefinity glaze. The process is simple: all you need to do is mix the 00/00 Glaze with the Brush & Bowl or Bottle Activator, apply all over to damp or dry hair, then rinse after 20 minutes (or less). Once hair has been dried and styled, the glaze acts like a topcoat to beautifully reflect the light.
