Decoding Hair Color Levels and Tones: A Beginner’s Guide
🌈💡Have you ever looked at a hair color chart and felt like you are back in a high school chemistry class? Let’s break down the world of hair color levels and tones and make it as easy as choosing between a latte and a cappuccino at a coffee shop. ☕️😉
What are Hair Color Levels?
Let’s start with levels. The best way to explain this and the way it was explained to me, is to think of hair color levels as the volume control on your stereo. Levels refer to the lightness or darkness of a color, usually on a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being the darkest (think: onyx black) and 10 being the lightest (platinum blonde!).
What are Tones?
Now, if levels are the volume control, tones are the type of music that you play. They give your hair color its character and mood. Tones can be warm (like fiery reds, rich golds, and cozy caramels), cool (like icy silvers, ash blondes, and blue-blacks), or neutral (a balanced mix of warm and cool). 🎨
Why Does This Matter?
Understanding levels and tones can take your hair color understanding from beginner to pro. Whether you’re dreaming of a sun-kissed balayage, a vibrant red, or an icy platinum blonde, knowing your desired level and tone can help you communicate more effectively with your colorist at your consultation at Fluff (book a consultation by clicking here). Plus, it can save you from any unexpected surprises when the foils come off! 🙈🤷♀️
