There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the right color for your next guest. While grey coverage, tonality, and longevity play a role, you may also want to take finish into account. How sheer or opaque your color is can have a huge impact on your guests’ final look.
Opaque color: provides more complete coverage and also absorbs the most light. This is great when you want a lot of white coverage, not so great when toning your blondes.
Sheer (or translucent) color: Provides less coverage and reflects more light.

The best grey blending hair color line
Smoothies is a top pick when it comes to grey blending for clients with. This semi-permanent colour line has the soul of a demi-permanent and provides the most beautiful grey coverage. While this color line will fade out over time (as all semis and demis do) this will result in an almost imperceptible blend.
While many guests think that complete coverage is the way to go when they see their first few greys, a blend can leave them with less noticeable grey and no lines of demarcation during regrowth.
*Pro Tip! You can add pure pigments to Smoothies (or any of our colour lines) for an extra dose of intense, vibrant colour!
