Hair Color 101
Hair color is categorized by Levels and Tones to make choosing a shade easier to identify!
“Levels” refer to how dark or light the shade is. Level 1 refers to Black while level 11 refers to Extra Light Blonde. Most permanent hair colors only lift your hair 2-3 levels, while bleach can lighten strands up to 7-8 levels.
“Tones” are referred to as warm, cool, red, or natural. Picking the right tone is key to achieving the best shade for you.
How often you should refresh your color depends on how fast your hair grows, how much gray you have, and how far from your natural color you have dyed your hair.
