I have a coworker who is naturally a level 8 ginger and would like to be an intense orange. His hair is very curly and coarse and virgin. What is the best path to take to achieve a bright orange end result?

Does anyone have a great teal formula? My client is a 3/4 BG/RO with some Y pure pigment. I'm sure she will have yellow left when I lift her.

You are correct with the 30/30/30...  I have found this formula to be excellent.

1 scoop Enlightener (30g)

20g universal 0N (to help keep the product moist)

60ml catalyst of your choice.

It work well and does not dry out!

Hey guys,  last year I took a balayage class at Aveda and I'm trying to remember the formula they used in the class, does anyone know?  I thought it was 30/30/30  30 peroxide 30 enlightenment and 30 creme booser

You would have to cleanse your co-worker for sure. You can do it with Enlightener + 10 volume and sift her base to a red.

Intense Base 40g

VR 8g

pure pigment Red 4g

10 20 at the new growth

20 at her mids & ends

Let it process for 40-45 minutes.

Hey there Lupe!

I have a co-worker that I have been doing this formula on for about a year now:

Deep shade 4, 8g d/nn,  4g d/bg, 4g  d/bv  and 10 volume and an occasional pull through with f.s permanent or demi, which ever she prefers. She has wavy, medium, thick hair. 

We are wanting to change her up to something similar to the color in the pictures I attached and was just wondering if you had any tips for formulation?! Thank you in advance, and I would also love others opinions too!

I think someone may have recently asked, but I am looking for recommendations for a rose-gold formula? I am looking to pre-lighten the ends and tone with level 8 with a r/v reflection on wavy/med/med hair.

I was thinking of toning with permanent and came up with: 40g 8n, 1.5g pastel v, 1.5g pastel b, 3g (deep) like r/v, 40ml 5vol

Would that be too much lt r/v? I definitely would not like the tone to fade quickly so would it help to have it be a little stronger? Also would 5vol be a good choice or should I use 20 since if is prelightened?

I'd love to hear some formulas that have worked and pic's if you have them :)
