HOW THE TERM "VIRGIN" FITS IN THE WORLD OF HAIRCOLOR
There is a term that for some reason brings the hairs on the back of mens heads up.....
That term is : VIRGIN
How we use that term : VIRGIN in the world of hair color and Hair generally is following:
The hair color you were born with > is termed "virgin" hair - within the walls of Hair color & the hair education world.
Becoming familiar with the "Natural Levels Color Chart" will help you in explaining to your stylist what you want and understanding your hair better if you are a home hair colorist
will help now and in the future with determining
your hair color , while talking to me for a Consultation....and in determining the colors you will need to use to properly color your hair
(or to fix your present color.)
Here is a simplified example of how a Colourist calculates
your formula to colour your hair: She is a VIRGIN Level 7 and would like to be lighter - lets say the goal is a Level 9
so....go up the chart - which is 2 levels.......
which peroxide lifts 2-3 Levels ?
30 Volume is the ANSWER !
The end formula will be to mix a tube of Level 10 + plus 30/40 volume peroxide (ash/neutral tone - your choice)
What level are you?
What level would you like to be?
how would you get there?
Now the biggest issue I find with most of my inquiries is...............???? The fact that very few of you have VIRGIN HAIR. And THAT issue presents a completely different problem.
Color does not lift color. Remember that and PLEASE read my posts on that subject before attempting any sort of "guess" coloring project.
