FORMULATION & MIXING 1.
Determine the hair’s Natural Level by referring to the Natural “N” Series Swatches on your AQUARELY Swatch Chart. Remember, you are determining only how light or dark the natural level is and not it’s presence of warmth or ash tones.
2.Choose the Desired Level. Do you wish to match or blend the natural level, lighten or go darker?
If your Natural or current level is not exact or between levels on the “N” Series Swatches, and your Desired Level requires lift, formulate by using the predominant darker level as a starting point. This will allow you to avoid unwanted warmth in the final result.
Now, refer to the Developer Usage Chart to determine the Developer required to achieve the deposit or levels of lightening you require. Simply follow the Natural Level on the side of the chart to the Desired Level on the top of the chart and follow to the point at which they intersect. Use the volume of Developer recommended.
PROCESSING TIMES ARE INDICATED DIRECTLY UNDER THE DEVELOPER USAGE CHART. PROCESSING GUIDELINES ARE EASY TO REMEMBER – JUST ADD 10 MINUTES TO YOUR DEVELOPER VOLUME NUMBER AND YOU’VE GOT IT RIGHT.
AQUARELY WILL NOT OVER-PROCESS, SO THERE IS NO NEED TO WORRY OR RINSE THE PROCESSED SECTION BEFORE THE REMAINING SECTION IS FULLY PROCESSED
THEREFORE, IF YOU ARE USING 2 DIFFERENT VOLUMES IN 2 SEPARATE SECTIONS OF YOUR APPLICATION, PROCESS THE ENTIRE APPLICATION FOR THE PROCESSING TIME OF THE HIGHER VOLUME DEVELOPER.
3.Once you have determined your Desired Level and the proper Developer to use in your color formulation;
Refer to the AQUARELY Color Selection Chart to the right >>>
First - Identify the Natural Color Contribution at that level. This is the underlying tonality that naturally occurs in all hair regardless of its degree of warmth or ash tones prior to applying permanent hair color.
Second – Refer to the Color Selection Chart or your AQUARELY Swatch Book to identify the shades that are most suitable to use at your Desired level. Decide if your primary goal is to Refine/Neutralize or to Enhance/Intensify the Natural Color Contribution at that level. Choose the shade or shades recommended for that purpose and feel free to Create your customized and most creative formulas by adding the percentages of secondary Shades that will reflect your PERFECT VISION
