Color Correction: Avoiding Orange Undertones, Warm Brunette Finish

Anne Moratto | November 23, 2016 | 11:15 AM

Carolyn Cina (@carolynrosecina), a hairdresser in New York, performed a beautiful color correction working with Paul Mitchell hair color. She returned her client to a 'better than natural' warm brunette color. 

STEP ONE: "I went in with a clarifying shampoo to remove the rest of the purple that was left in the hair.

STEP TWO: "After clarifying I went in and repigmented the hair. I used a 7wb of Paul Mitchell the Color with 10 volume developer on damp hair to repigment. I used this to add warmth back into the hair without having too much of an orange undertone.

STEP THREE: "I left this on for about 15 minutes and then washed the hair and quick-dried it.

STEP FOUR: "For the guests regrowth I used a 6NN of Paul Mitchell the color, for the repigmented hair I used 2 1/2 oz. of 6N  with 1/2 oz 7rb Paul Mitchell the color.

"I melted the 6NN from her regrowth down to create a seamless blend!"

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
