Hello everyone, This is Ramisa Mirzaee, a professional hair colourist, Today I'm gonna brief you on an important subject named: understanding hair colour charts. there are two things we need to consider when using hair colour charts. one is the colour depth and the other is the tone of the colour. there are different groups of colour tones in each hair colour chart based on the brand you're using. however, there are some certain colour tones which are found in almost every colour chart. the first and foremost colour shades available in every colour chart is the group of natural base colour, this base colour is often represented by: N and figure: 0 . it helps colourists determine the correct shade for their client’s hair. the second group is gold colour tones which is shown by: G and figure: 3 and in some other charts is shown by figure: 5.

The next group of tones is beige which is indicated by: B. the next group is Ash colour tones which is denoted by figure 1 in most colour charts and letter A shows its abbreviation form. Ash colour tones are usually used to neutralize hairs with orange and yellow tones of colour. the next group of tones is called Mat which is represented by M and in some colour charts it's shown by figure: 3 and figure: 11 in some others. the next group of tones is called Chocolate denoted by W and indicated by figure: 7 in some colour charts and figure: 6 in some others.

The next group is Red colour tones represented by R and is shown by figure: 5 in some colour charts and figure: 6 in some others. This group of tones is called Copper abbreviated to K and is indicated by figure: 4 in some colour charts and figure: 7 in some others. another most frequent group of tones in every colour chart is the Violet represented by V and denoted by figure: 2 in some colour charts and figure: 8 in some others. one more principle group of tones found in every colour chart is called High lift or Super Blonde which are used to lighten hair colour shade. there's another group named Colour Additives, These are made of pure colour pigments that are used in tiny amounts in different colour blends.

Well, I've mentioned the major groups of tones which by combining them, we are able to obtain many various colour blends. however, don't forget that we may come across many other different groups of colour tones when going through different brands for colour charts. For instance, there are some other groups in tones of Nescafé, Tobacco and etc. another point to keep in mind when choosing a colour blend is to consider the base colour of your natural hair. furthermore, it is very important to understand the colour numbering system properly. well, I hope you've found this tutorial useful. thanks a lot for watching us.
