ooo i am interested in this too - since i want pink ish red- i hope cherry red is pink .or magentaish. i am trying to dye my hair this - i have a semi failed apttempt so far but recoverable i think with some pink fudge over the top - also bleached out my fringe and am looking for it to go a pale pink to match the new dreads i will be making ...IF cherry red is pink enough


pinky: that picture was SO helpful ! would you know if dark cherry from IKS is similar in colour to cherry red in hue? just darker or deeper in colour?

hmmm, i worry the cherry red while it is the right hue it isnt going to be deep or dark enough . was hoping for a deeper shade to blend with since my hair will be dyed over and not bleached first . is there a colour like the cherry red but a deeper shade ? i am after a dark pink
trying to get my hair this colour but have a feeling mine will colour a little darker

Cherry red is a blend of blood red, red, and neon violet, so you could make it darker by doing your own blend with slightly different colors. The neon violet is necessary for the pink hue and the blood red is relatively dark already, but you could replace the red with burgundy, dark red, etc to get a similar but darker shade.

Plastikhaar's Kirschrot is a beautiful color (that's a blend as well).

Yes that's burgundy. I don't have kirschrot in hand right now so I don't know. I think there were several Plastikhaar reds and some neon violet /fuchsia/magenta/whateveritscalledthere. There's pretty good pic on their site: http://plastikhaar.ch/shop/product_info ... 535c2b2ccc

Does anyone have some green comparisons? I'm trying to figure out who sells greens similar to Punky Colour dyes in spring green or alpine green.

As I was investigating one copyright issue*, I happened to find a page with good comparison photos. (Mostly BNG and Modu/Anytime)

http://vkontakte.ru/album-11730480_96322424

http://www.kanekalon.com.ua/catalog/kan ... -kanekalon
These must be the best photos of BNG colors I've seen.

*) Just to be clear: This company had nothing to do with the issue.

I agree apart from walnuss, which i think would prob better match a #8... but i dont have the walnuss colour to look at in the flesh, im just going by their colour chart and what i have in stock here.

I've got the colour ring. There's color number behind the names, and this is what the numbers are:
Cacao - 32 - close to#6
Walnuss - 30 - about the same as #30 LA Trend.
Caramel blond - 114 - closer to Amber (BNG)
Champagner blond - 103 - It's definately lighter shade as 14, I would go with 22 and blend just a little bit of something reddish with it.
