Step 1: cool shadow on the roots
●The hair situation: Perhaps your client’s hair is a medium brown that’s showing lots of warmth after an entire summer spent in the swimming pool and under the sun. Now, she’s hoping to revitalize and neutralize her hair for a modern and stylish ashy brunette shade. .
●Your professional expertise: In this instance, you might choose Majirel Cool Inforced to give your client a rich and true-to-tone long-lasting color with slightly more transparency than Majirel Cool Cover. Majirel Cool Inforced boasts a palette of 11 unique, cool-toned shades, offering up to 6 weeks of neutralization and combatting brassiness for up to 21 shampoos, all while improving the hair fiber’s smoothness and shine thanks to Ionène G™ and Incell™ complex technologies. The formula follows the exact same ratio (1 part color + 1,5 oxydant) and processing time (35 minutes) as Majirel for ease of use.
●The key for creating the illusion of cool shadow is to choose a slightly darker color for the root shade. This darker cool color will create ideal contrast to the brighter shades used on the lengths, giving your smoky hair color depth and dimension. To create the ashy brunette your client is hoping for, Majirel Cool Cover 5,1 is a rich dark chestnut with ashy tones to provide an intensely deep shadow root shade for smoky balayage hair (lien: balayage hair). Mix 50ml Majirel Cool Inforced 5,1 (1 + 1,5) with 75ml of 12,5 vol oxidant and apply the color to the roots.
