Hair color toner can be used to brighten the color of your hair or slightly change the shade of hair color. Applying hair color toner should be a very quick process and thus it is important that you know the proper way to mix the hair toner. If the hair toner is not the perfect consistency, the liquid may simply run off of your hair, keeping the toner from having any real effect on your hair.

Things You'll Need

Remove the cap from a hair color applicator bottle.

Pour the entire bottle of hair color toner into the bottle. Hair color toner usually comes in small bottles that are meant for one time use.

Pour an equal amount of hair color toner developer into the bottle. It is important that you use a hair color developer that is specific for hair color toner because it is a lower level peroxide than developers that are meant for hair dye.

Twist the cap back onto the bottle.

Place a latex gloves on your hands.

Place your pointer finger on the tip of the bottle to keep any of the mixture from spilling out.

Hold onto the bottle with the rest of your hand and shake the bottle vigorously for about a minute until the the mixture is combined completely.
