It sounds as if she needed a bit more of a fill for her hair. I usually add OY to my Pure Pigment Orange.  The hair/light will absorb the Yellow from the orange if it needs it and reflects the red.

The Orange pure pigment is pretty saturated and when it turns red, that is a sign of needing more "Y" in the formula. You could gloss her with Pastel YO or OY.  It sounds as if she needs some Pastel YO.

Was the pre-color more on the RO side?

If yes, that would be the reflection that will tell you to add more YO (YRY) or OY (RYY)

Hi Lupe. Today I had a guest that has been highlighted blonde for several years and wanted to be bright copper all over. I went to Rock your Reds class and was excited to use my knowledge. First step spraying equalizing solution from scalp to ends and blow dry. Next step was to precolor, I used 80gLPB + CTA (because of its OR base). When finish with precolor it was beautiful guest and myself loved it. For permanent formula I used for NG was 20gIB + 20g6N + .5gDBG + 1gLOR+ 2.5gO + 20vol for ME 30gIB + 10g 7N + 1gLBB + 14g O + 20vol. My guest TTD is straight, medium, medium. The results were too red. I'm wondering if there was anything I should have done differently to get and clear orange reflection.

If you can get the hair to a pale yellow:

40 ml Universal 0N + 1g 1N FSP + 40ml creme activator

If you have yellow reflecting still:

40 ml 10N + 1g Pastel V + 1g 1N FSP + 40ml creme activator

If you have Orange Yellow reflecting:

40 ELC + 1g Pastel V + 1g 1N FSP + 40ml creme activator

For the second two formulas you would NOT apply those to the scalp.

Do the same formula using Universal 0N + 5 volume and do a Micro-new growth application and do either of those formulas on the mids & ends.

Strand test and see if you want to use more 1N. Use the 1N as if it is a pure tone.

Always strand test.

Hi Lupe! Trying to figure out a toner that gives a shiny Platinum . Silver /white. If I canget it to a pale 10
Comment by Jessica Martindale on September 3, 2014 at 2:34pm

I agree. That formula seems pretty great! I think I have been using too light a
Natural base and too much pig. My hair is fine with medium density. It sucks up color. I like to try this stuff out on myself first lol. I'll test it on a small section of my
own hair to see where I need to make adjustments! Thanks! I cant wait to see
your swatch!

Sounds like a very very soft RV

Depending on your desired level would be the pure tone to neutralize the NRP.


at a level 9 ... (soft formula)

9N 40g

pastel V .5g

Lt OY .5g

Lt RV 1g

Pure tone increments depend on your Texture, Type and Density

Creme Activator 40ml

Try with a standard formula if you want more saturation. See if that is what you want to see. I will swatch it out tomorrow.

Jessica,. Do you still have shades of enlightenment in your salon? You could play around with sunrise and sunset, I assume you are depositing this "rose gold" color..
Comment by Jessica Martindale on September 1, 2014 at 11:22pm

Thank you by the way. I hadn't thought of those combinations. Definitely going
to give it a try.
