Hair Colour Thoughts

Welcome to BACK2MYROOTS B2MR regular postings of fresh new topic’s

Hair Colour Thoughts

How does this work well if you look at the two formulations : The balancing required for out natural level would be as follows

Our first formulation is gold and warm it lacks any Blue.The balancing formulation replaces that Blue but also balances out the the lacking Red pigment that is dominated by the Yellow in the first part.

Final  Balanced Level 8 tone  Y+Y+B+B+R+R =  Yellow Blue Red at a natural level 8

It’s all about balance.

Violet Controls yellow!  Not ASH ! Yellow and Ash/ BLUE =  GREEN !

When pre lifting hair with Bleach to any level of Yellow. A violet tone will re balance  you are introducing an equal amount of Blue and Red mixed together to control and re balance the yellow exposed in the lifting process. If you assess the degree you have lifted as being slightly orange yellow then you would have  use a slightly more blue tone. See chart above.

The Blue and or violet and in some cases green pigment in permanent colour or N series is normally calibrated to be the right amount of pigment for the level you are working at. But choice of Developer or Peroxide will always pay a role in this,violet as a toner or pre lightened hair would be used when a yellow or pale yellow level of lift has been reached.

This wheel may help you as you can see violet sits opposite the yellow telling us that it’s would be required to restore balance. Opposites re balance or neutralise the unwanted pigment exposed or created.

Formulation: Target colour = Lift. Deposit. Timing: always the equation to think about.

Ask your self Do you want to utilise or neutralise the pigment you are going to expose.

Violet plays a key roll as a controller in the Blue cool reds and even in shades as Dark a 3 N see chart above.

In the toning of hair Violet plays a key role in controlling the yellow pigment exposed and giving a really nice shade of platinum Blonde. Always when toning stay with the toner as it develops to get the desired effect you are looking for in some cases of toning if left on to long the pigment can over deposit.

Cool reds depicted in above shot. Fashion red shades top row. Violet based and other shades blonde show a good example of tones attainable wit the correct choice of toner.When toning it is essential to follow the instruction provided to make sure you mix the correct formulation all companies this will differ hence me not giving out formulations. Never apply a toner and leave it without watching it develop you may just over tone through negligence!

The ‘Three R’s’ 
”Reputation. Recommendation. Retention”. 
It’s not built on that constant looking for new clients it’s looking after what you have! It’s investing in your self and your business and those around you.

 There are no guarantees in life and ones career and career choice is no different thing happen and its how we deal with them that defines us. Jobs change relationships come and go the one thing that remains after training is our skill both hands on creative and the ones we learn about people and communication about caring about being a team player. Constantly developing new skills staying current is so very important.

I also think that we need to always look at the WhyAsk the question Why are we in business whats it for? OrWhy do we want to go into to business what is success? Why do I suggest this I think by asking and exploring the why we get to the motive behind why we want to be in business what is true success. Why the will also help us to understand our true values this in turn helps us to follow the path to the success we want  and desire. It will help us to surround ourselves with the right team those who share our values and visio

 

 

Remember. Salon success. Stylist success. Business success are all linked together it’s Team success. Its never about any destination only ever about a journey taking the right people on that journey makes it enjoyable maybe even fun!
