The Color Wheel

OCS Color Wheel

A Note on Concentrates and Full Spectrum Colors

Grey Concentrate sits outside the Color Wheel. Our full spectrum colors, which include 4MO, 6TO and 8CA; are multi-tonal colors that have no major tones so they cannot sit on the color wheel, but they can be mixed freely with any other tone.

Hi-Lift 11 Series

Our popular high lift 11 series include:
• 11HN Blue/Violet Base.
• 11HA Blue/Green Base.
• 11HS Violet Base.

Note: These Colors work from a natural base 6 and lighter. Results will be natural, golden blonde.

Useful Tip: To achieve natural or platinum blondes add 1 scoop of Naturlite powder to the Hi-lift Color.
