Perfect, Personalised Colour Blends
Looking for a colour which is a little bit this, and a little bit that and 100% you?
Sitting on the bronde fence and you want both light brown and a little dark blonde?
We’ve got this.
Your perfect colour might just be a customised Duo Colour blend which perfectly match your hair goals.
The possibilities are almost endless. Blend two warm colours for brighter, richer warm tones. Blend one warm colour with a neutral for a softer more muted warm colour which is perfect for you.
Mix your copper with a neutral to anchor your colour for better grey coverage. If you are covering greys and like warm tones, you can expect better, more consistent and even colour results if you add a neutral to your warm colour.
Commitment phobe? Blend your Duo colours with our semi-permanent, deposit only 5 vol developer to try your new colour as a semi-permanent, without the commitment of a permanent colour.
Duo Colour Selection
Mix like with like to double-down on your preferred tones.
Blend two cool colours together to achieve a sleek, creamy colour finish without unwanted warmth.
If you want to double-down on warmth, blend two warm colours to achieve a brighter, richer, vibrant warm colour with hints of chestnut, mahogany or copper.
Blend a little chestnut with mahogany and copper for prominent warm tones with a twist.
Let us know the tones you love to see in your colour and we can recommend a blend which works for you.
Warm + Neutral:
Blending a neutral colour with a cool or warm colour will add half-strength cool or warm tones. This lets you achieve a softer strawberry blonde, or to add half-strength cool tones to mute unwanted warmth.
If you are covering greys and you prefer warm tones, blending a neutral colour with a warm colour will help you achieve an even consistent colour result from roots to ends. The neutral will fill missing pigments from your greys and anchor the warm tones, leaving a better colour result over greys.
Half-Strength Cool Tones:
If your colour goal is to mute unwanted warmth, but you don’t want to see a predominantly cool finish, try blending a cool colour with a neutral. This will give you half-strength cool tones, which could be all you need to mute some unwanted warmth. This blend can work well if your hair throws natural warmth, and if you are keeping your base colour close to your natural colour level. Blend half a tube of Montecristo Light Ash Brown with Napoli Dark Blonde, for perfectly balanced light chocolate tones with a lighter, summery reflect, and a hint of Ash to offset brassiness.
We always recommend cool tones when you are lightening because lightening reveals natural warmth. Blending two colours from two different levels will give you a base colour between those levels, with cool tones which will tone and balance warmth, leaving a tonally balanced finish.
Just A Hint
Some truly beautiful colour outcomes have just a hint of a second tone or colour level. Less can be more.
Try adding a hint (one tablespoon) of rich copper tones for a softer, more muted beautiful colour result.
To achieve this colour result, you will initially need two separate colours, which you can order in a Duo Colour Kit. Squeeze your primary colour into your tint bowl and then use a tablespoon measure to remove one level tablespoon of colour. Add one level tablespoon of your second colour, and mix well. This blend creates a beautifully customised blend with a subtle secondary tones such as her gorgeous soft auburn.

I spent A LOT on salon visits and wanted a more natural look…enter The Shade…could not be happier with my result! I used Duo option Bellaria 7.1 Dark Ash Blonde with Montecristo 6.1 Light Ash Brown.J. Berude
Camilla suggested a duo of Lucca Chocolate Blonde 7.53 and Torino Golden Blonde 8.3 for my dark brown hair. The duo of colours was easy to prepare and apply and the shampoo and conditioner lovely to use. Overall I am very happy with the results!K. Hoch
