Read on to discover our Hidden Gems, learn new formulas and get ready to formulate

gray hair for perfect coverage. It will appear a bit
darker when mixed with 10 vol.

09T Chrome

Your go-to shade for those
blondes who want absolutely
no warmth!

Mix with 1/2 oz. of N on 25% gray for
a golden, not-too-yellow result. Also a
great shade to mix with copper shades
for more body and depth.
