Using the Color Wheel

Color Theory Review • Lesson One*

The Color Wheel is the backbone of all color theory. At it’s most basic form, it does three things for us everyday:

  • Shows us how to enhance underlying pigment with our formula
  • Shows us how to control underlying pigment with our formula
  • Shows us how to choose the most flattering colors for the undertones of our client’s skin.

You have learned all of this before, I know you have. But it’s possible you didn’t learn it in a way that helps you retain it effectively. Because the color wheel should always be at the forefront of your brain while consulting and while formulating, this information needs to be simple, efficient, and accessible for you.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Defining Primary, Secondary, & Tertiary Colors
  • What Opposing Colors Do
  • Identifying Warm & Cool Colors
  • Skin Tone vs the Undertone of Skin
  • Complimenting the Undertone of the Skin
  • Classic Cues for Formulating
  • How the Color Wheel Makes Toning Blondes Simple

Since this is the most basic lesson in the whole curriculum, this one also includes a very valuable bonus at the end regarding two important things about wasting color:

  • How easy it is for a salon to waste $31,000 in color every year
  • The quickest and smartest way to avoid that mistake.

This is the one thing that nobody else teaches you! And it is easy.

After purchasing this lesson, my biggest piece of advice is to watch the video first, and then watch it again while answering the workbook questions. It's important that you actually understand your answers so you can remember this information while working behind the chair.

This Single Lesson Purchase Includes 1 video lesson (28 minutes) and 1 workbook.
