FAQ – Tones Of Perma Blend

  • I noticed on the Clinical Academy website that it says that they are pre-modified. Is it ‘pre-modified’ in the same way that Tina Davies is? And how would you define pre-modified with that in mind?

    They are pre modified in that, we have warmed most (With the exception of Diamond Pearl) of the pigments up as 99.9% of clients are cool in terms of permanent make up. But these are unique as we have told you how much they have been warmed. On the Colour Rulers we refer to this as Warmth Value – The scale for this is 0-5. So for instance Red Riding Hood has a Warmth Value of 5, so really warm whilst Diamond Pearl has a Warmth Value of 0, no wamth. We tell you the warmth value so that if you get an extremely cool client and you wish to use a lower Warmth Value pigment, you can bespoke add extra warmth for this client. This way you stay in control of the warmth as an artist.
  • Are the Tones of Perma Blend as warm as the TD pigments? What is the effect of this?

    They are a totally different pigment range and you will find them very true to colour immediately once in the skin and once healed. Clients need warmth to stop the brows turning ashy in the skin over time.
  • Is Red Hot considered a modifier or pigment colour?

    It is yes. We have made this very warm so you can just add 1-2 drops for a huge warmth injection for darker very cool skin types so as not to lighten your dark colours too much. The other kits have similar such as Red Riding Hood (kit 1) and Trusty Rusty (kit 2) but you can use these alone also. Red Hot is the only colour you probably wouldn’t use alone unless you were correcting.
  • Is the retention rate similar to all other Perma Blend Products?

    Same great quality and retention. We have given added educational value to these as we felt this was what was being asked by so many across the world.
  • Are these pigments for machine only?

    These pigments are manufactured for machine and for microblading. They can be used alongside the whole Perma Blend range.
