Soft Purple Hair

Hello folks! I should have posted these sooner, because they are beautiful.

For the hairstylists out there I will be including my formulation. Kayla wanted a lavender color, a very soft, muted, pastel purple. I some blues and ashes in with the purple tone because I always feel like the purples have a little bit of a pinkish tone to them with Wella, which makes sense. Color is subjective and every line is a little different so it is important to know your line. I used one color and applied roots first for awhile then to ends. Since I did want an ombré effect and her blonde hair was already darker at the roots than the ends I took the color off as soon as her ends were where I wanted them. Her ends grabbed really quickly so I rinsed then reapplied to her roots which needed quite a bit more time since they were not lightened to the same degree. I used Wella’s ColorTouch line which is a Demi-permanent haircolor and it is also progressive meaning that it gets darker the longer it is on.

Here it is:
Wella ColorTouch .6 10/81, .7 10/6, .2 5/66 .2 8/81 .2 /68 = double CT Emulsion (1.9%)
