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

I have used both 098 steel silver and cotton candy pastel spray (pastel pink ) together , and as of recent I have just tried your U71 Metallic silver permanent (grey/silver) absolutely stunning colour (which went on top of my pre bleached hair which was last done a few months back now) , my hair also feels amazingly soft , my only downfall was my own mistake and not Schwarzkopfs which was, that I should have bought another box haha. I honestly can not rate these three products enough. I have done a photo collage with my results the top photos are of the latest results using only U71 Metallic silver - and the bottom photos are of the first time I tried the dye onto (months prior) bleached hair using the 098 steel silver semi permanent, and using the(pastel pink) Cotton Candy spray to create an ombré effect of the silver and pink morphing into one getting pale pink tips. Can not rate this product enough. From a genuine user here in the uk that hasn't been paid for my opinion. :-) fabx

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!
