Colour Chart Tips to help you figure out the colour codes

Colour codes vary from one manufacturer to another but the basic rule of thumb is that the lower the number, the darker the shade is and the higher the number the lighter the shade is. The darkest colour in most manufacturers is BLACK, colour 1 or 1B Off Black.

Colours that include the letter H usually refer to the word: "Highlight" which means the number following the H is the highlighted colour and the number before the H is the base colours.

Colours that include the letter F usually refer to "Frosted" colours which is a lighter highlighted distribution of colour within the base shade

Colours with a / indicate an equal blend or 50/50 colour distribution.

Similarly, colours with R can mean "Rooted" where the colour has a darker root.
