This is "Hair Color Code" The secret to hair color formulation

Hair Color Code

Hair Color Code comes from the Color Wheel. It is the process of breaking your color formula and the contribution from the hair into all of the basic components (B’s, R’s, and Y’s) available. Then rebuilding them to create Background, Tone, and Reflect. It helps reveal whether or not we have a balance or imbalance in our formula result before we apply the formula to our client’s hair. Too much Background = flat, drab, subdued, desaturated results. Too much Tone or Reflect = bright, vibrant, hollow results.

In this class, we will explore the genesis of “Hair Color Code” and how to use it to predict more successful results in your hair color work.

Subjects covered in this class are:

A paradigm shift in hair color theory

  • The Color wheel presented in a new way.
  • The source of “Hair Color Code”
  • Learning to use the “Mapping Guide.”
  • Live “hands-in” color scenarios for group activities."
