Wella 7A Medium Smokey Ash Blonde - Results and Before & After
July 27, 20222 min read
Your secret weapon for the perfect ash brown hair!
Wella Colour Charm 7A Medium Smokey Ash Blonde will give you ashy, light brown results (I wouldn’t call them blonde!). It’s a salon quality, permanent liquid hair colour designed for professional and at home use,
The Wella 7A Medium Smokey Ash Blonde has a blue base. This means that it contains blue pigments which are designed to counteract (or neutralise) brassy orange tones.
This colour is for you if you’re for light, ash brown results. It is perfect for toning orange from your hair, either from bleaching or from colour fade. Wella 7A Medium Smokey Ash Blonde is also great for grey coverage.
I recommend this colour for level 7, 8 & 9 hair. If your hair is darker than a level 7, you won’t be able to get the same results as you see in the swatches. If your hair is a level 10 (white blonde) you might find this shade is too ashy for you.
You’ll love this colour if you’re looking for vibrant, long lasting results and are looking for a true ashy light brown shade!
WELLA 7A MEDIUM SMOKEY ASH BLONDE RESULTS
These are results using the Wella 7A - what do you think? I love them!
Here are my before and afters of the Wella 7A - please excuse the low quality! I used both a lighter yellow swatch and a more orange swatch to give you an idea of how your results will be. The lighter your hair is to start, the ashier your results will be (but you can make this colour even ashier - see the end of the article for my tips!).
WELLA 7A COLOUR INSTRUCTIONS
The Wella Colour Charm 7A Medium Smokey Ash Blonde is a permanent colour, so needs to be mixed with a developer. You can use either a 20 Vol Developer for permanent results and grey coverage, or a 10 Vol Developer for semi-permanent results and a slightly darker result.
Step 1. Mix 1 part colour with 2 parts developer For example, 50ml colour with 100ml developer (for an all over application on shoulder length hair).
Step 2. Apply your colour mixture to your hair and allow to process for up to 45 minutes
Step 3. Wash out the colour and style as usual
If no hair colour is ever ashy enough for you, mix 2-4 capfuls of the Wella Colour Charm Toner in 050 Cooling Violet into your mixture. This will give you an even ashier result!
