August 8, 2008, Newsletter Issue #150: Corrective Color

Tip of the Week

Correcting undesired tones or colors in the hair is a basic as the color wheel itself. Red neutralizes green or ashiness (and vice-versa), blue neutralizes yellow (and vice-versa), purple or violet neutralizes orange (and vice-versa). Some corrective color solutions are as follows:

If your hair is too red, use an ash color that has a green base.
Too orange or brassy? Use a violet or purple based color.

Each company's color tells what its base color is to make it easier for you. If you are not sure and are doing your own hair color, most beauty supply stores have trained sales people who can help to guide you through the process of choosing the correct color.
