Different Ways of Using Ugly duckling Violet

1. Violet and Intense Silver Blonde Look Created by Elona Taki.

Violet and Silver Blonde

The technique above involves using a mixture of Ugly Duckling Violet and Intense Silver Blonde 100.20 on the root area, mixed with 20 Vol. developer.

After 10 minutes of processing, Elona makes a fresh mix of 100.20 and 20 Vol and applies on the mid lengths and ends.

This technique is possible thanks to the creamy consistency of Ugly Duckling's Violet color, which ensures that the mix stays where it is and does not bleed into the Silver Blonde mid-lengths.

3. Using Violet for Color Intensification

Violet also has its place in a colorist's toolkit as a color intensifier. Just add violet to any brunette tone, for example, in order to get a more intense and vivid color result.

4. Using Violet for Color Neutralization

Violet can also be extremely useful mixed in with you r target color in order to neutralize yellow when lifting your client's hair color. This is particularly useful when lifting from a level of approximately 6 to a level of approximately 9. The violet will help considerably in fighting the yellowness in the hair and give a beautiful cool, result.

The table below gives the recommended proportion of target shade versus Violet to use when following this procedure. Experience will give the colorist a better idea of how much violet to apply exactly depending on hair level and texture, but the general principle is that the lighter the hair color that you are aiming for, the less Violet you should use. 

In particular, be aware that when you are at level 9 and above, there is very little color pigment in the hair, and using too much violet can easily result in a color result that is too intense.
