Top tips:

  • For blue or 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
  • 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 coverag

Bleached my hair to near-white, followed all the instructions and my hair ended up being some mashup of green at the roots and pale blue at the ends.

Before a trip to Tennessee I applied 2 packs of 098 to my longish hair that had recently been stripped of yellow blond tones. It turned out beautiful and during my holiday I was approached on a daily basis (sincerely)by ladies wishing to compliment me and asking how they could get my look. I'm about to do my 2nd application..
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: So great to hear - thanks for the lovely review!
