Wella Color Charm hair color comes in a wide variety of colors and two consistencies. Liquid color is ideal for applications using a color bottle. Crème color is perfect for tricky brush application techniques during which the color needs to stay put. The most popular and easiest type of color to apply is liquid color. Each bottle of liquid Color Charm contains 2 oz. of color. The color is activated once it is mixed with color developer.

Step 1

Pour the entire contents of the Wella Color Charm bottle into the color bottle. Add 2 oz. of 10-volume, liquid developer to the mix, screw on the lid and shake vigorously until the mixture is blended throughout. Put on the gloves.

Step 2

Apply the color to the front hairline by squeezing a small amount of color directly onto the hair and working the color into the hair using your fingers. Continue applying color to the circumference of the hairline until both the front and back hairlines are covered.

Step 3

Create a part directly down the center of the head using the tip of the color bottle. Apply color to the part, and work the color into hair on both sides of the part. Continue the part down the center of the back of the head, and apply color to this area as well. Create similar parts on both sides of the head, directly above the ears. The hair is now divided into four sections.

Step 4

Apply color to the hair one section at a time using ½-inch horizontal partings. Section off ½-inch of hair, apply color from the base of the section to the tip and place the section over the top of the head. Create another section directly underneath the first section and repeat. Continue until the entire section is complete before moving onto the next section. Apply color until all of the hair is completely saturated.

Step 5

Set the timer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, rinse hair until the water runs clear, shampoo and condition.
