Top tips:

  • For pastel shades, hair will need to be very light blonde, so pre-lighten if you’ve not been blessed with this colour
  • If you’re creating a pastel shade, the colour you pre-mix is a good indicator of the colour result - if you want a more vibrant shade, just add more colour cream
  • Semi-permanent shades are ideal for maintaining colour vibrancy between permanent applications
  • Red, pink and purple Ultra Brights shades can be used on natural hair for a subtle colour boost
  • Remember, if your hair’s previously coloured, this may affect results
  • Avoid staining your fav jumper by having an old towel at the ready and use some skin barrier cream around your hairline/ears
  • Have some cotton pads and skin toner handy just in case you get some product on your skin
  • If you’re lucky enough to have thick locks or hair longer than shoulder length, you’ll need two or more packs for a nice, even coverage

I love this shade and all of the XXL shades because they are so vibrant with very little fade. They are easy to apply and smell absolutely gorgeous. I like using loads of the XXL colours especially red, pink and purple to create a multi tonal look.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Stunning shade, Rachel - thanks a bunch for the feedback!

I was doing everything as written on the box. But the volor washed away immediately almost completely. I didn't wanna soft #blorange but i got it(((( (had to dye twice per day)
Only 1 day between washings i was happy(
P. S. the photo was made yesterday. Today I've combed my hair and I'm sad(((
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Krista, we're sorry to hear that. It sounds like the colour didn't fully take this time round, which can be caused by a few different factors such as porous hair or styling product build-up. We'd recommend using a deep cleansing shampoo 48 hours before colouring to combat this, if you'd like some more advice on this do contact our Schwarzkopf Advisory Service on Freephone 0800 328 9214. Thanks.

I absolutely LOVE my new colour! It's given me so much confidence! I'm 44 and have been various shades of brunette and blonde all my life - this is the first time I've dared to go red and the results are beyond my wildest dreams! I will be going red permanently when this fades. Thank you!
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Thanks for much for the review, Julie!

I've been using this shade for ages, it was the first brand/shade I tried, and it's great, so why change? This photo is a few years old, but I love how vibrant it comes out each time, and that it sticks longer and longer with each refresh. I'm now looking for a permanent version, does anyone know which of the permanent LIVE reds is closest in colour/brightest?
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Great to hear that Laura, thanks a lot for the review! Scandalous Scarlet is the closest permanent LIVE shade - if you'd like any tips or advice, do give our Advisory team a quick ring on 0800 328 9214 and an advisor will be happy to help!

Absolutely love this colour, I had dark brown hair but the results were amazing and vibrant. The only thing is ive had it this colour a while now and cant seem to get it to fade! I'd like to go a pastel lilac/ grey for over Christmas but obviously cant do that until most of the red is gone.. help please?!
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hey Lauren, thanks so much for the review! You're right about the transition in that you'll need to have grown out or removed the red before trying to get to a lilac/grey. For the best advice on how to do this, please give our Advisory team a call on 0800 328 9214 and one of our advisors will be happy to talk you through the steps!
