When having hair colored for the first time, your stylist may use some unfamiliar terms. First, he or she will determine the "Level" of your hair, which is the depth of your hair color's shade,whether it is light , medium or dark. Levels range from 1(black hair) to 10 (lightest blonde). Then , the tone must be established, which is the base shade of your hair at the time your hair will be colored. Tones range from warmest red to coolest ash. Tone is an indicator of how warm or cool hair color is , and is often referred to as the hairs "base color". There are about a half dozen different tones. when your hair color is "lifted" this means that your natural color is lightened so that the new color can be deposited into the hair shaft. When permanent color is deposited in one step the process is a one step or "single process". A "double process" involves first lightening the hair with bleach , which changes the level of the hair color . the second process is applying new color to achieve the new desired tone. When a color product is used after bleaching it is often called a "toner" Generally the toner is a permanent color , but semi permanent and the new "in-between " type of color products can be used as toners too.
