Tips & Trucs

Kleurentheorie gebruiken om te helpen bij het tonifiëren

Heb je je ooit afgevraagd waarom onze versterkende producten werken?

Meesterkleuringsexpert Kristina Russell deelt een aantal van haar supergeheime, geheime kapperskennis om je te helpen de juiste producten te kiezen om je haar thuis te kleuren…

Let’s take a look at how a colour chart informs the way you work with MUVO toning shampoos.

Hairdressers use the colour wheel regularly to formulate hair colour for our clients. When looking at the colour wheel, colours that are opposite to each other are the colours that will counteract one another. However, if you look at the colours directly next to each other, they can be used to layer to add brightness and depth to the other. For example, red is next to orange. Therefore, red can be used to boost brightness when added to a faded redhead that is too orange.

When toning the hair, we look at the colours that counteract the unwanted tones. This is why we use purple pigments to counteract yellow tones, blues to counteract oranges and greens to counteract reds. 

When toning though, be wary of using full-strength MUVO toning shampoos to counteract subtle or pale tones, especially on light blonde hair that has been bleached. For example, using full-strength red on pale green tones caused by swimming because bright red can be too strong if you’re looking for a neutral result. You can pastelise the strength of MUVO toning shampoos by diluting them with Totally Naked Shampoo.

The MUVO toning method. Step 1 - Assess the hair during your consultation to determine the target colour and make a plan Step 2 - Detox the hair to remove the buildup of products & toning shampoos with MUVO Deep Cleansing Shampoo Step 3 - Apply your chosen MUVO toning shampoo on damp hair for 1-5 minutes for subtle and noticeable colour or apply to towel-dried or dry hair for a longer period of time for a stronger deposit of colour Step 4 - Rinse when the desired colour is achieved and follow with a MUVO conditioner or treatment

My favourite MUVO toning products for my clients are:
