Wella Strawberry Blonde Formula

To achieve a strawberry blonde hair color using Wella products, you’ll need to mix a specific formula tailored to your starting hair color and condition. Strawberry blonde is a warm reddish-blonde hue, and getting it right often requires a mix of blonde and red/copper tones. Here’s a general guideline for a Wella formula:

Starting from Light to Medium Blonde Hair:

  1. Wella Color Charm Permanent Liquid Hair Toner:
    • Use a light blonde shade as a base, such as T11 Lightest Beige Blonde or T35 Beige Blonde.
  2. Wella Color Charm Additive:
    • Mix in a red or copper additive like 8RG/729 Titan Red Blonde or 7R/810 Red.
  3. Developer:
    • Use Wella Color Charm 20 Volume Developer for lifting your natural color a bit and allowing the toner to penetrate effectively.

Starting from Dark Blonde to Light Brown Hair:

  1. Lightening (if needed):
    • If your hair is dark, you might need to lighten it first. Use a Wella bleach with 20 or 30 Volume Developer, depending on how dark your hair is.
  2. Wella Color Tango Permanent Cream Toner:
    • Choose a blonde base like 8NB Blonde or 9NB Very Light Blonde.
  3. Add Red/Copper Tones:
    • Mix in a shade like 7RG Copper or 8R Red for the strawberry effect.

General Tips:

  • Strand Test: Always do a strand test first to see how the color turns out on your hair.
  • Follow Instructions: Mix the color and developer according to the instructions on the packaging.
  • Application: Apply evenly, starting from the roots to the ends.
  • Processing Time: Leave it on for the recommended time, usually around 30 minutes.
  • Aftercare: Use color-safe shampoos and conditioners to maintain the color.


  • The exact formula can vary based on your current hair color, hair type, and condition.
  • For precise color matching or if you’re unsure, it’s best to consult a professional colorist.

Creating the perfect strawberry blonde can be a bit of trial and error, especially if you’re doing it at home. It’s a balance between blonde and red tones, so adjusting the proportions to suit your preference and starting hair color is key
