This is How You Do the Perfect Hair Color Correction
If you need to use a hair lightener to lift out unwanted tones in your client’s locks, make sure you consult the Wella Professionals Lightening Curve first. This clever chart helps you determine what level their color is currently on, and how many levels you’d need to lift in order to reach their desired color. For example, if they’re an orange level 6/ blonde but they want hair corrected to a light ash blonde hue, you may want to lift them to a pale yellow level 9/ before applying a cool, crisp toner.
Did you know? When mixing up a corrective color to balance brassy hair, you can add a little olive to the formula to neutralize overly warm tones. Just look at the Color Circle. Colors that sit opposite one another on this wheel are able to cancel each other out, while hues that sit side by side result in an all-new shade. Because green is opposite red, it makes sense to add some cendre to brass-busting blends.
