5 Shades of Summer by Illumina Opal-Essence

It’s time to think about customising your colour offering to give clients a summer hue perfectly suited to them.

Our recommendation? Adding Opal-Essence to their colour service by mixing it with an Illumina base, using it to tone, or as a single colour application for a sheer, milky finish.

Opal-Essence from Illumina Color has five metallic, no-depth shades. Each shade leaving hair with a soft sheen and reflecting both cool and warm light, creating an effect reminiscent of sheer textures or light reflecting on moving water - making this the perfect finish to fresh summer colour.

These shades are extra special because of their innovative formulation. Inspired by top stylists, Wella Professionals’ smart technology captured their colour vision by formulating it into custom shades.

Illumina’s opalescent shades

The five Opal-Essence shades are formulated for gliding over the surface of the hair, spanning every shade from metallic rose-pink to burnished copper tones – leaving hair shimmering.

Silver Mauve

An intense violet hue with a silver sheen. If your client is currently sporting an icy blonde shade, this could be their new season update.

Chrome Olive

Bored of brassy blonde? Remove warm tones with this metallic olive green with its touch of silver chrome for a cool, light-reflective finish.

Platinum Lily

Jazz up a pale blonde with this beige blush hue. The platinum finish keeps the shade feeling fresh.

Titanium Rose

The new rose gold takes your client’s shade into the new season with a touch of titanium. Perfect for adding a blush hue to blondes and brunettes.

Copper Peach

Great for light brunettes, this warm copper has a touch of metallic peach shine to warm up their shade.

These metallic hair shades are also the perfect multi-taskers: Reduce existing warm tones in hair by smoothing Chrome Olive through lengths or apply Silver Mauve to remove brassy tones, the most neutralising colour in the collection.

Create different colour effects depending on your clients’ needs. For an even, opalescent shade apply the formula to block colour, or for a multi-tonal effect smooth over hair with pre-lightened sections.

Opal-Essence shades can even be mixed with others in the Illumina Color range, opening new colour opportunities to suit every shade and style.

With the new Opal-Essence collection, it’s always time to shine.
