I know Deep is only for virgin hair but I was feeling adventurous and needed a caramel without highlighting and toning.  My guest was a previously colored level 4 (something she picked up at Sally's) and wanted caramel highlights.  She was on a…Continue

It didn't turn out to what we really wanted. I'm having trouble coming up with the root formula
Comment by Lupe Voss on Tuesday

Jason, yes... definitely in need of all of that!

Kim, if you like your formula do it again over this:

Fashion Primer: 10N 40g + Creme Activator over saturated & dried hair with  Equalizing Solution.

process fro 20 minutes.

re-saturate the hair with Equalizing Solution and dry again.  Apply your formula.

Thanks Lupe! I was thinking that maybe it was missing some red tones/violet tones. I did the Fashion Primer and Equalizing Solution and did a 0N, Pure Violet, Light V/B formula and it turned out a beautiful lilac/lavender color!

Don't know what I'd do without your knowledge! Thanks again!

Can someone help me create a formula for this. My client is already present lightened and I did a version of this but it only lasted about 4 washes. She has fine Shiney straight hair

I am looking for haircolor makeover photos for my column in Modern Salon magazine. Must be 300 dip or higher--1 or 2 MB in size for print. I'd also interview the colorist on what was done. also interested in collections of 3-4 photos if they involve any chemical service, color, smoother, etc. Please message me if interested.

The 0N with the Enlightener keeps the texture creamy and puts weight in the product to keep it in place. I prefer it over the Booster.  Try it. It does not dry out.

Sounded as if you needed more V with your ELC formula?  Without more V you had too much blue wich made green.

Blue (pure tone) + Yellow (NRP) = Green

You could have added Pastel V to kill the Yellow and the blue would be fine.  It was the V that was missing.

If that happens again, think about it this way.

If you see Green and you want Blue to reflect, use Violet.  The Red in the Violet (B+R) will kill the green.

You can do grey formulas on any level, make sure to neutralize the NRP add the tone you want to see.


An easy way to control a pale yellow formula for a fashion color, Do a fashion Color primer. (we teach with HCM)  Deposit Only Color Treatment

10N + Creme activator on equalized and dry completely hair. process for 20 minutes.

Shampoo and equalize again and dry. Apply fashion color for 20 - 30 minutes.

You can do that before the Lilac...

a pretty Lilac (to me a purple with blue) formula is:

20g 0N

.75g Pure Pigment V

1g Pure Pigment B

22ml Creme activator
