The colour wheel below shows the different hair levels, and the underlying pigment at that level.  You can use this tool to get the hair you’ve always wanted - perfectly brass free!

Tint Department Colour Wheel and Levels To Remove Brassiness From Hair
First determine the unwanted pigment - eg: yellow, orange, red or a mixture of those tones.

Then look at the opposite colour to cancel out / neutralise that unwanted pigment.

For example, if you were looking for a cool ashy silver blonde, you would need to lighten to a Level 9-10 which would expose the yellow pigment in your hair. Then you would use a purple based product to neutralise that yellow, and give you an ashy blonde.

Or if you were a level 7 dark blonde / brunette, you would cancel out the orange tones you see in your hair by using a blue based product.

One important thing to remember: When you're cancelling out unwanted tones you can only do this at the current level of your hair - products designed for a lighter level won't work.

Below is a list of products sorted by their neutralising pigments!
Products can be mixed together if you're seeing a variety of unwanted tones. You can also mix shades together if the levels of the colours listed below are too dark for your desired colour. For example, you could mix Wella Colour Charm Permanent Colours in 12A & 7AA to get rid of red orange tones in level 8 hair.
