Keep Cool This Season with New Luminexx Hues!

Changing your client’s hair colour comes down to a delicate balance between creativity and chemistry. One of the most common challenges faced by stylists is countering warmth in hair colour. Whether it's yellowing in blondes or unwanted brass tones in brunettes, the solution often lies in your formulation and the addition of blue, violet, and ash matte tones. This is exactly why we’re introducing you to our newest Cool Luminexx shades — Intense Ash, Violet Ash, Ash Matte, and Natural Ash Brown — designed with everything you need to counteract warmth.

Understanding Warmth in Hair Colour

Before diving into how Intense Ash, Violet Ash, Ash Matte and Natural Ash Brown tones can work their magic, it's essential to understand why warmth occurs in hair colour. When hair is lightened or coloured, it goes through a series of chemical reactions. During this process, the natural pigments in the hair are broken down, exposing underlying tones. In many cases, these underlying tones contribute to warmth in the final colour result. For example, when lifting dark hair, the underlying pigment revealed is often red or orange.
