Remember cosmetology school? You probably learned a few simple steps for your basic hair coloring service. For review, Georgia hair designer and Farouk educator Randy Stephens lists his for-sure four:


  1. Determine the hair's natural level.
  2. Determine the level to which you want to take the hair.
  3. Determine the tone; you're trying to get the hair either warm or cool, and then select a color.
  4. Determine what developer you need to use with the color you've chosen.


"Farouk has 82 colors and eight additives, and with those 90 colors you can mix anything you want," Stephens remarks. "Use a color wheel. If you're afraid of color and you need a little confidence, the color wheel makes it simple."
