Make cool pink more warm toned - do you mix in red, orange or yellow?

Estimable Member Registered

I know pink is already considered a warmer colour, but to make a purpley pink less cool and less purple and closer to the warmer, redder side, is it generally best to mix in red, orange or yellow?

I know this really depends on which exact dyed are being used, but I was wondering if there is a general rule.

To be more specific, I just dyed my hair with MP fuschia shock (reminds me of directions dark tulip) for the first time. It's a really pretty colour but I'd prefer something less purple toned next time. I absolutely love directions rubine and I was wondering what I should mix in the MP range to get a colour more like directions rubine.

I know I could just use rubine but I enjoy getting into colour theory and trying new things!

Hey, it really depends on the exact dyed, and it is hard to give advice without any info about it. If you have such an opportunity, then try a mix of colors on a strand of your hair to evaluate the result.
In general, it is very useful to do this always before any staining. I once bought a red hair dye (at that time I had red hair in length and natural roots), and I thought that red would look great. But as a result, I got brown hair, even without a red tint!
