« on: 19 Mar 16 / 05:58 PM »
I love the first all over grey....thinks its gorgeous.
Also long a combo or the grey and pink in pic 2....ahhh so many pretty colours I want them all!!!!

Just informed by college hairdresser the grey would be impossible as pink/red is one of the hardest pigmant to get out of your hair :(

That's not always true, but yes, it is very difficult to get out. If you can fade it enough you can get a darker grey like the top one, but it would be more purple toned than steely blue. There's ways of toning colours as well. You'd need a greeny blue I think to tone a pale pink, but it would be tricky to get a non-brown toned grey.

The silver in my avatar pic was achieved by toning the base colour. (Apart from the top 4 or 5 inches that was freshly bleached regrowth coloured with diluted pravana silver. it was pretty faded in that pic, that was taken just before i re-dyed it)
My base was patchy pastel greens and pinky lilacs (from the run off after bleaching roots, it had been various shades of lilac/lavender previously hence the greens)
I toned the pinky areas with diluted Alpine green, and the green areas with diluted Deep Purple to get an even silver. It looked better when it was freshly done, but I couldn't capture the colour on camera.

It's something we can talk through, but we'd need a photo of the faded colour to actually do it and advise on colours.

I take it I would have to completely grow out the pink to achieve this?  :(

No. As I said, you can fade it so it's pale, then tone. Toning is using another colour that is opposite that colour on the colour wheel to make it a neutral colour. Grey comes under the neutral colours.

Pink is tough to fade, but it's possible. You can't always get it totally out, but enough to tone.
