This chart will guide you in understanding color placement based on the color name.

ROOTED OR SHADED
Ex: Cream Blonde Shaded; A mixed color with a darker root throughout the entire style mimics natural regrowth.
Ex: Chocolate Lighted; A mixed color with a focused amount of highlighting in the front to open and brighten up the face-framing area.
Ex: Candy Blonde Tipped; Lighter tipped ends, similar to a gradient and an ombre effect.
Ex: Champagne Toned; A root applied only to the top and crown area of the style.
In addition to the distribution, some colors will also be darker, lighter, or more warm-toned.

HOT more warmth + bold highlights
Ex: Hot Mocca Rooted; A vivid variation of a mixed color made more vibrant overall by using the warmest color as the most dominant with bold highlights, creating a warm effect. Found primarily in red and auburn colors.
