How it Works
The numbers on a hair colour shade chart represent the depth and tone of the colour. Anything that appears before the decimal point is the depth (how light or dark a colour is). The Neal & Wolf colours go from 1 to 10.
The number that appears after the decimal point represents the tone (how the colour appears to the eye). For example a 6.7 in our shade chart is a dark blonde with a brunette tone.
|9||Very Light Blonde|
|.9||Sand (equal parts of gold & Violet)|
You may also see colours with a double tone, for example 6.77. This a dark blonde with a double brunette tone. If you use a colour with a double tone the first tone that you see is the majority tone, around 70%, the second tone that you will see is called the secondary tone, around 30%.
You will also see some colours in our shade chart that contain a double number before the decimal point, for example 77.66. This is an intense medium blonde with a double red tone. This means that this colour is part of our vivid red range and gives a more intense result.
This colour numbering system also allows a colourist to neutralise unwanted colours. For example, to avoid a blonde hair colour from turning too warm you could add more .2 - Violet or .8 - Blue to counteract the yellow or orange tones.
