Sunset Hair

Here is a color I did in early May. This is my friend Nita and she had an ombre done about six months ago and her hair has been growing out. She has had several variations on red/brown since then and the ombre has been covered at times but always comes back. She has a lot of color build up on the midshaft so I mixed some deeper brown into her regrowth formula then diluted and added more red to the formula (and waited fifteen or so minutes) before applying to the midshaft, then emulsified at the sink for a few minutes. I used the ColorTouch line from Wella with Emulsion.

Formula: Wella ColorTouch: .2 6/75, .2 6/35, .1 8/81, .3 6/7, .2 4/6, .2 44/65, .2 6/4 with double Emulsion

Short Ombré With Just a Hint of Violet

Hello Everyone! Check out my new hair color by Lizzie Davis, cut by Derek Piekarski. I am going away from blonde, but still want some dimension and I want to let my ends stay light since I worked so hard to get them there. I wanted just a hint of violet with a mostly brown color and I wanted my near black roots to be blended.

Midshaft: ColorTouch .15 oz 5/66, .65 oz 6/7 with 1.2 oz Intensive Emulsion (13 vol)
Tips: Illumina .2 oz 9/7, .1 oz 9/60 with .3 oz Emulsion (6 vol)

Soft Purple Hair

Hello folks! I should have posted these sooner, because they are beautiful.

For the hairstylists out there I will be including my formulation. Kayla wanted a lavender color, a very soft, muted, pastel purple. I some blues and ashes in with the purple tone because I always feel like the purples have a little bit of a pinkish tone to them with Wella, which makes sense. Color is subjective and every line is a little different so it is important to know your line. I used one color and applied roots first for awhile then to ends. Since I did want an ombré effect and her blonde hair was already darker at the roots than the ends I took the color off as soon as her ends were where I wanted them. Her ends grabbed really quickly so I rinsed then reapplied to her roots which needed quite a bit more time since they were not lightened to the same degree. I used Wella’s ColorTouch line which is a Demi-permanent haircolor and it is also progressive meaning that it gets darker the longer it is on.

Here it is:
Wella ColorTouch .6 10/81, .7 10/6, .2 5/66 .2 8/81 .2 /68 = double CT Emulsion (1.9%)
