Is AG series 100% white hair coverage?
If there is less than 25% white hair existing, then yes you can utilize 100% AG /13 series on its own with Calura Permanent. If more than 25% white hair is existing, then utilize one of our white hair coverage series.
White hair coverage vs. blending
When choosing white hair coverage vs blending, it’s all about your guest’s hair journey and what they are seeking. When choosing blending, in most instances your guest like to switch up their tonalities more frequently and for white hair coverage they like to “fully commit” to their tonality.
Clarification: Recommended for color corrections but not highlighted hair? Can you explain?
There may be hesitations about using the new AG -13 series behind the chair in the situation where lightening has been done. If your guest is a level 9 or 10 we recommend not choosing AG as your dominant tonality, for this may cause a greenish hue. You can utilize this series when lifting and needing to colour correct or neutralize unwanted warmth. Here’s my tip, if you are just getting started on using this series, use 25% of AG -13 in your formula to 75% of N, NB or Intense Neutral. This will allow you to still control while being protected by our dominate series.
Always remember, that with our NEW MATTE COLLECTION, YOU are in control. Remember to use the hashtags #matteincontrol and #mattebycalura to get featured. It’s ALL about control.
This is so helpful. I “dipped my toe” into the matte series to start with by incorporating the matte series into my regular formulas and loved the subtle shift in colour tones. The only thing I might add is that because the colour is cooler the light reflects a bit deeper. That said, the shine is still there. Thanks Calura for being such an amazing colour line.
