When to Use High Lift Hair Color

 

There seems to be a bit of confusion over what exactly high lift hair color is.

 

Think of high lifts as the rocket engine in your hair color arsenal. They are the strongest colors in your palette. Meaning they will give you maximum amount of lightening plus tonal deposit. High lifts are not bleach, bleach will lighten hair the most but has no tonal refining capabilities.

 

AGEbeautiful has two high lift categories that are essential to your dispensary.

 

AGEbeautiful High Lifts, which have three shades: Neutral, Gold and brass banishing Ash, delivering up to 5 levels of lift with pigment packed tonal deposit.

Want to fight brass as you lighten? Ash is your go-to.

Thinking of enhancing the warmth in your hair as you go brighter? Gold will get you there.

 

And brand new to the AGEbeautiful family… the Ultra Bond Hyper Lift shades. These heavy hitters not only give exceptional color but fill your hair with bond building technology.

 

Here’s how I’m loving using these shades!

 

 

 

Beachy Balayage

For the ultimate sun kissed, super natural highlight work, I love using high lift colors.

Just recently I was working on Lila.

Lila is a natural level 6 (light brown) head of gorgeous hair, which we wanted to add natural, sun-kissed brightness to.

I simply mixed together AGEbeautiful High Lift Neutral with 40 Volume and free hand painted onto selected strands. The results were gorgeous and natural!

 

 

Hyper Lightener

Now this is what I call “the luxury lightener” because it gives you ample amount of lift.

A touch of tonal control and a decadently delicious consistency.

Simply mix your usual formula of high lift and sprinkle a touch of your favorite powder or crème lightener into it.

 

Here’s the luxe formula:

2oz. of AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Hyper Lift Clear and 1/8oz. AGEbeautiful Crème Lightener with 4oz. of 40 Volume

 

 

Color Cleanse

Want a quick way to remove unwanted color build up?

Using a high lift as an express all over wash will remove the unwanted tones gently and effectively.

I mix together AGEbeautiful Ultra Bond Hyper Lift Clear with double 20 Volume for 10 minutes on the areas of the hair I want to softly lighten.

 

The beauty of this is that you are not only cleansing the hair but loading it up with all of

that advanced bond-building action from the Ultra Bond Hyper Lift family.

 

 

 

Blushed Rose

Have a blonde, platinum or silver base color that would like a kiss of rose?

Mix AGEbeautiful High Lift Ash with a drop of AGEbeautiful Permanent 5RV.

 

 

 

Believable Blonde

I love to use a high lift and then an ash from a level 7 or 8 when I want to lighten a lot but still have tonal control.

 

Try:

2oz. AGEbeautiful High Lift Neutral & 1/8oz. AGEbeautiful 8A Permanent with 4oz. 40 Volume

This is ideal for level 6 or higher base colors.

 

 

 

Brass Free Brunette

Softening a darker shade into a lighter brunette without a lot of brass is a snap

using a high lift shade and a classic shade together

 

Love this formula:

2o.z. AGEbeautiful High Lift Ash & 1/4oz AGEbeautiful 6A Permanent with 4oz. 30 Volume

This formula looks fantastic on levels 4-5 that want to be softly lightened with minimal red/orange tones.

 

These shades are sure to boost your palette’s coloring potential. I know you are going to have lots of illuminating success and cannot wait to see how they work for you!
