A FEW OF ROBERT'S FAVORITE FORMULAS

With Color by Robert Craig

Professional colorists do not just dump a bottle of color on someone's hair. Many of today's top colorists are doing a lot of double and triple color applications to get just the right look. And they are adding highlights or lowlights to get more dimension. Here are a few of Robert's favorite formulas that he has used in the salon. Because Color by Robert Craig is a permanent hair color that contains NO peroxide, ammonia or alcohol, the result is always beautiful, shiny, healthy hair with long lasting colors. You can be as creative with Color by Robert Craig as any colorist and do it in the comfort of your own home. No longer do you have to worry about an unexpected result because of chemicals that can cause off color results in no time. Color by Robert Craig is the only way to enjoy home haircolor. Try these salon proven formulas and enjoy your new look.

 

What you need: Some of the formulas below call for a highlight cap. You can now purchase our Color Tool Kit that has a highlighting cap, gloves, brush, etc. in our shopping cart. A wide tooth comb or the professional highlight brush can also be used to add highlights. The timings mentioned below are for virgin hair and are estimates. A strand test is always recommended.

 

Formula 1: Grey Reduction

For: Black or Brown hair with any amount of grey.

Results: This formula evens out grey patches or reduces the amount of grey. Great for those who want to go natural slowly or don't mind some grey. This method allows you to go longer in between touch-ups because you aren't covering 100% of the grey.

With a highlighting cap, pull fine sections of hair through the cap doing more in the back and progressively less toward the front and around the face. If you have a grey streak or patch you can pull more hair from that area to even out the grey. Apply any shade of Color by Robert Craig that matches your natural, dark color on the hair pulled through the cap and process for 20 to 35 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.

 

Formula 2: Chocolate Chip

For: Dark Brown hair that is boring. If grey coverage is desired, apply #2 Ash Brown for 35 minutes from roots to ends and then shampoo, rinse and proceed with the formula below.

Results: When you lowlight dark hair with a black, the results are stunning. The brown hair now has the illusion of being a little lighter/richer looking and the hair has a lot of dimension. Because the colors play off one another the shine is incredible.

With a highlighting cap, pull fine sections of hair through the cap doing more in the back and progressively less toward the front and around the face. Apply #31 Natural Black on the hair pulled through the cap and process for 20 to 35 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.

 

Formula 3: Chocolate Cherry

For: brunettes with less than 50% grey.

Results: A rich warm dark brown with a cast of cool deep red.

Apply #3 Chocolate Brown from roots to ends and process the full time. Shampoo, rinse and towel dry to remove excess moisture. Follow with #9 Dark Mahogany from roots to ends and process for 20 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.

 

Formula 4: Auburn Mist

For: light to medium brown hair with less than 50% grey.

Results: A neutral medium brown with a warm red cast.

Apply #6 Golden Brown from roots to ends and process the full time. Shampoo, rinse and towel dry to remove excess moisture. Follow with #11 Medium Auburn from roots to ends and process for 20 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.

 

Formula 5: Strawberry Burst

For: Light, Medium and Dark Blondes or 50% or more grey hair or hair that has been prelightened to a yellow/orange stage (see this page ).

Results: A beautiful, redhead with wonderful dimension.

Apply #13 Coppery Golden Blonde from roots to ends and process the full time. Shampoo, rinse and towel dry to remove excess moisture. With a highlighting cap, pull fine sections of hair through the cap doing more in the back and progressively less toward the front and around the face. Apply #12 Light Auburn on the hair pulled through the cap and process for 20 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.

 

Formula 6: Amber Waves

For: Blondes who are too light and have lost dimension to their hair or 50% or more grey hair or hair that has been prelightened to a yellow stage (see this page ).

Results: A beautiful, golden blonde with amber highlights.

Apply #18 Golden Blonde from roots to ends and process the full time. Shampoo, rinse and towel dry to remove excess moisture. Apply # 17 Amber to the base of a wide tooth comb and comb into hair. You will be lowlighting with this formula and can add as much as you want but do more in the back and progressively less in the top, front and around the face. Process for 20 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.

 

Formula 7: Blonde Dimensions

For: Blondes who are too light and have lost any dimension to their hair or 50% or more grey hair.

Results: A beautiful, warm, natural golden blonde with a sunkissed look.

With a highlighting cap, pull fine sections of hair through the cap doing more in the back and progressively less toward the front and around the face. Apply # 18 Golden Blonde on the hair pulled through the cap and process for 20 - 30 minutes. Remove cap, shampoo, rinse and condition. Style as desired.
