Hi Lupe and HCM people. I need to purchase 2 new scales for my salon. The scales I have are from bed bath and beyond and not really working for our formulas. What scales do you recommend?

What is the reflective tone for rose gold?  I am asked that question for a rose gold formula and I am not sure what that looks like.

Ok gang! Rose gold formula ideas over prelightened hair.

My co workers first attempt was just ok. It came out a little hollow and slightly muddy. I believe she used 0N with V/R. It obviously turned out more red than anything. After one wash it's a pinkish tone. Lacks depth and luster for sure.

Enlightener + Creme Activator is my choice too!

I love it!!!

Thanks guys! I have definitely had the issue with the pure V looking too red, so I wanted to get some other opinions.  I will post the finished product!

I love Creme Activator! I use it for softer blended highlights.

Comment by Lupe Voss on August 21, 2014 at 9:42am


Troy's formula is awesome. Great one Troy!

You could also do:

PP V + Lt VB + Lt BB   (increments depend on Texture, Type & Density) + creme Activator on pre- lightened hair.   Let the color process for 30 minutes

Aveda Pure Violet is very red. I use the following formula on 75% grey: (20g) ON, (12g) Pure Violet, (3g) L-BB, (1g) D-BB with 20 Vol.

purple hair

I am looking for an Aveda color formula for this purple.  My client has hair that has been lifted to a 9N.

start a discussion and add the photo there. That is the best way to see the pic.  This way we can see what is up.
