Understanding Color Codes: Estetica


Becoming familiar with color family ranges can better help you understand the colors you are looking at.

In general, the color families will work like this:

Black: 1-2
Brown: 4-12
Blonde: 14-26
Natural Red: 27-33
Vibrant Red: 130-134
Grey: 34-60 & 92
Platinum: 101-104, 613

A general rule of thumb with blacks and browns is that lower numbers will be darker, whereas higher numbers will be lighter. For example, R2/4 by Estetica is the dark brown blend, whereas the color R9/12 is a light golden brown and light brown blend.
