  8. 8. Unit GH17 You must know the principles of the colour star when carrying out a colour correction service.  Use complementary (opposite) colours to neutralise unwanted tones. For example, violet will neutralise unwanted yellow (gold).  There are shampoos available to neutralise unwanted colour tone.  However, you must remember to consider the intensity of the colour. © Pearson Education 2009 Printing and photocopying permitted Colour hair using a variety of techniques Colour correction
  9. 9. Unit GH17 Some keys to good practice when carrying out a colour correction service are:  Take care not to use a darker or more vibrant colour than is necessary.  Assess the depth of the client’s hair colour and use a slightly lighter depth.  Make sure that the intensity of the tone is the same. For example, neutralise nicotine staining on white hair with a silver colour rather than a more intense violet. © Pearson Education 2009 Printing and photocopying permitted Colour hair using a variety of techniques Considering colour intensity
