Hair Toners Explained

LIVE Colour Hair Dye from Schwarzkopf

Hair toners work using the concept of the colour wheel, where opposite colours cancel each other out. Like CC creams in make-up, it’s the same idea. For example, if you have blue/grey circles under your eyes, you would use a cream with orange tones in it. So if your hair has too much yellow/orange pigment, you’d use a specially developed hair toner that contains blue/purple pigment to cancel it out and leave you with a purer blonde result. The LIVE Colour Refresher for Cool Blondes is an example of a blonde hair toner. This product contains purple pigment that will help neutralise unwanted yellow tones for a cooler blonde result.
