tool time Aloxxi Tones Demi- Permanent Colour refreshes color, blends grays and enhances tones with an ammonia-free formula containing the CDP Complex to condition, deposit color and protect the hair for multidimensional results. EXPERT TIP: "Consultation is most important in any situation, but especially with men. Some key terms to keep in mind for a gray-blending dialogue are 'soft blending,' 'soft all-over covering,' 'dimming' (cooling white hair to dusty light ash) and 'peppering' (a bit more time consuming, but worth it—I use a medium artist painting brush and paint individual hairs). Aloxxi's 6A Tones Demi-Permanent Colour is a go-to. I recommend cutting men's hair before any blending or creative color and making sure lighting is on point so you can see where color blending needs to be heavy or soft." —THOMAS COLE, ALOXXI TEAM MEMBER American Crew Precision Blend is available in four shades ranging from dark to light that process in fi ve minutes, fade on tone with no line of demarcation and last for up to 24 shampoos. EXPERT TIP: "My favorite application method for longer hair is to apply the color to the tips of a vent brush and brush the color in the direction the male client styles his hair, starting at the root. For clipper-cut hair, apply the color to a sponge and dab it onto the surface of the hair for an effective and fast result. Your color application should take less than one minute. Be discreet and apply the color at the bowl, remembering that you're going for a natural look that is not 100 percent coverage." —JANELLE EIDE, AMERICAN CREW INTERNATIONAL ALL-STAR EuforaColor No Ammonia Intense Ash Shades (three new shades) are ideal for gray-blending or complete gray coverage, while the three existing No Ammonia Natural Ash Shades can be used to achieve natural coolness at any level. Flexibility of coverage—permanent, demi-permanent and color glossing—can be achieved by adjusting the mix ratio, processing time and Universal Cream Developer formula . EXPERT TIP: "Using a slightly darker shade will provide a more intense color deposit in the time allowed. When touching up previously colored (permanent coverage) hair, use the permanent coverage formula for new growth and the demi-permanent or color glossing formula to refresh the ends." —JESSICA RAMSEY, EUFORA REGIONAL TRAINER CHECK OUT THESE INDISPENSABLE PRODUCTS—AND EXPERT TIPS— THAT ARE PERFECTLY SUITED TO MEN'S HAIR COLOR TECHNIQUES. | JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2017 | The Colorist 31 2 3 1
