Client’s wanting Rose Gold hair? Unsure of what products to use to create this look? Look no further! Today on the Salons Direct Blog we are joined by the amazing hair queen Heather MacKenzie ( who is going to show us how to create a stunning Rose Gold colour using Pulp Riot High Speed Toner in Rose Gold.

Heather is known more for pastel and vivid transformations. She is part of the UK Pulp Riot Squad and has just won colour artist of the year at Wella Trend Vision awards. Find out more about Heather here. 

Toning your client’s hair has never been quicker or more straightforward, thanks to Pulp Riot. Did you know that you can achieve beautiful, multi-tonal results from just ONE TUBE of toner?

“I’m absolutely obsessed with Pulp Riots High Speed Toners!!! They are my ultimate go to for so many of my transformations. They’re not only ideal for pre toning because of their quick development time but they’re so beautiful to be used as your final result.” – Heather MacKenzie


“If you take a look at the before photo, we were working over quite a warm base which helped give us that warmer rose gold effect. If you’re wanting a similar result but you’re working over a cooler/lighter base, you might want to think about adding some warmth to your formula. You can do that utilising Pulp Riot’s Faction8 range of permanent colours, for example -33, a gold booster or even something a bit warmer like 9-4 which is a level 9 copper. Either of these can be intermixed with the toners.”


“This one here I created using the shade Rose Gold, this was mixed on a 1:2 ratio colour: developer with 6 vol (1.9%) for only 5 minutes.” 

“The toners come in 8 shades and can all be intermixed, although they are stunning even on their own as you can see from the Rose gold.”

“PRO TIP: for anyone nervous about the fast development time, you can slow this down by changing your ratio to 1:3 or 1:4 leaving you with more time to apply.”
