Canceling Unwanted Tones in Hair & IN CONCLUSION
I know all these color wheels and colors seem silly to most of you ...there is a purpose.
There is an EXCELLENT reason for busting out the crayons and coloring again....
Hands down .....One of the most asked questions here on Killerstrands is:
HOW DO I GET RID OF THE "_______" tones in my hair......the 2 words that go in the blank are 'Brassy' and "yellow"
Which I have answered many many times.... and promise to still answer many MORE times...
I just thought it might be good to teach you to fish rather than to fish for you.....
Using these Color wheels can help you answer that problem every single time....so many hair stylists just don't understand this simple simple technique. I am hopeful that many of you will begin tosee the light at the end of the tunnel.... let me know if you are
If you have brassy or yellow tones in the hair........where do you find the solution?
Remember . . . a complementary color or the OPPOSITE color on the wheel NEUTRALIZES the tones you find irritating. So what color complements Yellow???? ...............Purple or Violet - - - makes no diffference which name you choose whichever you prefer
Some people LOVE Gold and yellow in their hair...as far as I'm concerned its the USA and anyone can have whatever tone they want. I am just here to teach you
"HOW" to get the tone you want.....and get rid of the tones you dont want.
That way you WILL have the beautiful hair everyone desires.
The Color Wheel is simple.
Remember the primaries.
Knowing these, you can name the secondaries.
Visualise these colors arranged on a circle.
Half the circle is cool;
half is warm.
Colors opposite one another neutralize each other
Cool contrasts- out warm and vice versa
Thats all you need to know
