How to use a Pearl Blonde Toner & Purple Shampoo to Counteract Yellow

Hair by Elona Taki


Are you trying to get your hair a really nice white ice blonde?

We had a client with very dark roots - almost black, in fact.

We first applied Brilliant Blonde blue bleach with developer specifically on the root area.

We managed to lift it, but it was still yellow.

Then we used the following toners:

  • Pearl blonde 10V mixed with 
  • Clear.

Once again, we applied our toner mix specifically to the root area, which needed toning badly.

Whereas the rest was OK.

Then, because the root was still yellow, we added in purple shampoo while the toner was still sitting in the hair.

This allowed us to get rid of the yellow & make everything consistent from roots to ends.

Try this yourself in the salon and see whether you can make it work.

And tell us what happened!
