Starting a new blog series to try and get my writing back up to par as well as share what the industry is really like behind the chair. "A Day In The Life" is starting now.

Ashley, You are so welcome. That was such a great weekend. Let me know if you need anything. I am so  happy about the confidence in your formulas. That is what it is about!!!

I just wanted to thank you again for the awesome HCM class last week. It was by far the best color class I've ever taken! I learned so much, and feel much better about the color decisions I'm making( i.e. Less praying during process)!

Thought I would share this fun violet and red I did. If anyone has more interesting ways to do the transition from both colors I'm open :D

Quick question,

So, one of my fellow students had a guest that wanted light copper highlights, and I formulated for her with:

40g ELC

5g FSP L. O/R

80g 20vol

But then when my educator did the check, he said to use Pastel Y/O instead because Pastel Y/O is basically a Pastel O...

We didn't feel that the Pastel Y/O would give the desired result so we did it with the L. O/R anyways, but, is what he said true? I feel that when I looked at the swatch for Pastel tones the Y/O doesn't look like it had much O in it at all...

Sarah, Yes I do the same removal with DOCT.

Ashley, Yes I do consider TT&D for ELC and adjust my Pure tones.

Comment by Ashley Minor on March 30, 2014 at 2:09pm
Do you change amount of pure tones added with elc for T,T,D?
Comment by Sarah Sibley Mohammed on March 30, 2014 at 1:06pm
Hey Lupe! So we talked about the proper way to shampoo out color, I.e, 2 shampoos with HOT water. Does that apply for DOCT as well?

what an awesome formula! So Proud! (if you don't mind me saying that)

The only concern I have is on the Mids and Ends. It sounds as if the BG might be too much...

Have you seen her mids and ends? It would depend on what her hair needs.
You might need to fill the mids and ends with Lt YO, too.


80g 6N DOCT

1g BG (Maybe BV or VB ?  I am not sure if the BG will make her mids & ends too dark you will know when you see her)

3g Deep OR

80g Cream Developer

Make sure to use Equalizing solution on new growth and mids and ends. dry the hair completely.
