Milady Haircoloring: Cosmetology Quiz! - Quiz


Have you ever dabbled in hair removal? Hair removal is the purposeful removal of body hair. Both men and women have visible hair on their head, arm pits, legs, pubic area, and eyebrows. Men have more hair on their actual bodies than women. They can have hair on their chests, back and abdomen. Waxing is a trendy way to remove hair on both men and women. The quiz may help you decide if you want to bare it all.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The layer of the hair that provides strength and elasticity is the:

    • A.

      Cortex

    • B.

      Cuticle

    • C.

      Follicle

    • D.

      Medulla 

    Correct Answer
    A. Cortex
    Explanation
    The cortex is the correct answer because it is the layer of the hair that provides strength and elasticity. It is located in the middle of the hair shaft and is made up of keratinized cells. The cortex is responsible for giving the hair its structural integrity and flexibility, allowing it to withstand external forces and maintain its shape. The cuticle, follicle, and medulla are also important parts of the hair, but they do not specifically provide strength and elasticity like the cortex does.

    In individual hair strands, hair texture is determined by the:

    • A.

      Density

    • B.

      Porosity

    • C.

      Diameter

    • D.

      Length 

    Correct Answer
    C. Diameter
    Explanation
    Hair texture is determined by the diameter of individual hair strands. The diameter refers to the thickness or width of the hair strand. Hair can be categorized as fine, medium, or coarse based on its diameter. Fine hair has a smaller diameter, while coarse hair has a larger diameter. The diameter of the hair strand affects its appearance, feel, and how it interacts with styling products and tools.

    If the cuticle is lifted, allowing the hair to take color quickly, the hair is said to have:

    • A.

      Average porosity

    • B.

      No porosity

    • C.

      Low porosity

    • D.

      High porosity 

    Correct Answer
    D. High porosity 
    Explanation
    High porosity refers to hair that is able to quickly absorb and retain moisture, chemicals, and color. When the cuticle is lifted, it creates gaps and holes in the hair shaft, allowing substances to penetrate easily. This results in the hair being highly porous and prone to damage.

    Haircolor levels are arranged on a scale from:

    • A.

      1-5

    • B.

      1-10

    • C.

      1-100

    • D.

      0-14

    Correct Answer
    B. 1-10
    Explanation
    Haircolor levels are arranged on a scale from 1-10. This scale represents the lightness or darkness of the hair color, with 1 being the darkest (black) and 10 being the lightest (palest blonde). The scale allows hair professionals to accurately communicate and understand the desired hair color and make appropriate color adjustments during the coloring process.

    Hair color tones can be described as:

    • A.

      Warm, neutral, or hot

    • B.

      Warm, neutral, or cool

    • C.

      Cool, neutral, or even

    • D.

      Cool, warm, or primary

    Correct Answer
    B. Warm, neutral, or cool
    Explanation
    Hair color tones can be described as warm, neutral, or cool. This means that hair colors can have undertones that are either warm (such as red or golden), neutral (neither warm nor cool), or cool (such as ash or blue). Warm tones tend to have a reddish or golden hue, while cool tones have a blue or ash undertone. Neutral tones, on the other hand, do not lean towards either warm or cool and are considered balanced. This categorization helps in determining the most flattering hair color for an individual based on their skin tone and personal preference.

    • A.

      Level colors

    • B.

      Secondary colors

    • C.

      Primary colors

    • D.

      Cool colors

    Correct Answer
    C. Primary colors
    Explanation
    Primary colors are the pure or fundamental colors that cannot be achieved from a mixture of other colors. They are the basic building blocks of all other colors and are used to create a wide range of hues. In traditional color theory, the primary colors are red, blue, and yellow. These colors are considered pure because they cannot be created by mixing other colors together.

      Red

    • D.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    D. Blue
    Explanation
    Blue is considered the strongest and only cool primary color because it is associated with calmness, serenity, and stability. It is often used to create a sense of tranquility and relaxation. Blue is also known to have a cooling effect on the eyes and is commonly used in interior design to make spaces feel more spacious and cool. Additionally, blue is one of the three primary colors, along with red and yellow, and can be mixed with other colors to create a wide range of shades and hues.

    Red added to blue-based colors will cause them to appear:

    • A.

      Lighter

    • B.

      Darker

    • C.

      Golden

    • D.

      Yellow

    Correct Answer
    A. Lighter
    Explanation
    When red is added to blue-based colors, it creates a color that is closer to the middle of the color spectrum, resulting in a lighter appearance. This is because red is a warm color and blue is a cool color, and when combined, they create a color that is less intense and brighter in comparison to the original blue-based color.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A ___ color is achieved by mixing a secondary color and its neighboring primary color.

    • A.

      Warm

    • B.

      Tertiary

    • C.

      Complementory

    • D.

      Base

    Correct Answer
    B. Tertiary
    Explanation
    A tertiary color is achieved by mixing a secondary color and its neighboring primary color. In color theory, primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) are the foundation for all other colors. Secondary colors (orange, green, and purple) are created by mixing two primary colors. Tertiary colors are then formed by mixing a secondary color with its neighboring primary color. Therefore, a tertiary color is a combination of three colors and falls between a primary and a secondary color on the color wheel.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Depending on the level of color, equal proportions of the primary colors will produce:

    • A.

      Gray, white, or black

    • B.

      White, black, or green

    • C.

      Brown, orange, or white

    • D.

      Green,violet, or black 

    Correct Answer
    A. Gray, white, or black
    Explanation
    Equal proportions of the primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) will produce a neutral color palette consisting of gray, white, or black. When these primary colors are mixed in equal amounts, they cancel each other out, resulting in a lack of color saturation. Gray is created when all three primary colors are mixed together in equal proportions, while white is achieved by mixing all three colors at their maximum intensity, and black is produced by mixing all three colors at their minimum intensity.

  • 12. 

    A primary and secondary color positioned opposite each other on the color wheel are considered:

    • A.

      Base colors

    • B.

      Teritary colors

    • C.

      Opposing colors

    • D.

      Complementary colors 

    Correct Answer
    D. Complementary colors 
    Explanation
    Complementary colors are positioned opposite each other on the color wheel. They create a high contrast when placed together and can enhance each other's intensity. When mixed together, complementary colors can create a neutral color or a shade of gray. This relationship between colors is often used in art and design to create visually striking compositions.

  • 13. 

    Temporary color pigment molecules do not penetrate because they are:

    • A.

      Weak

    • B.

      Soft

    • C.

      Neutral 

    • D.

      Large

    Correct Answer
    D. Large
    Explanation
    Temporary color pigment molecules do not penetrate because they are large in size. The size of the molecules prevents them from easily passing through the layers of the material or substance they are applied to. This lack of penetration results in the temporary nature of the color, as it can be easily washed or rubbed off.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Semipermanent hair color on average should last:

    • A.

      4-6 days

    • B.

      4-6 weeks

    • C.

      8-10 weeks

    • D.

      2-3 weeks

    Correct Answer
    B. 4-6 weeks
    Explanation
    Semipermanent hair color typically lasts for a duration of 4-6 weeks. This type of hair color is designed to gradually fade with each wash, allowing for a temporary change in hair color. The duration can vary depending on factors such as hair type, color intensity, and the frequency of washing. It is important to note that semipermanent hair color does not penetrate the hair shaft as deeply as permanent hair color, which contributes to its shorter lifespan.

  • 16. 

    Which type of haircolor penetrates the hair shaft and is formulated to deposit but not lift color?

    • A.

      Demipermanent hair color

    • B.

      Permanent hair color

    • C.

      Semipermanent hair color

    • D.

      Semitemporary hair color 

    Correct Answer
    A. Demipermanent hair color
    Explanation
    Demipermanent hair color is the correct answer because it is formulated to penetrate the hair shaft and deposit color without lifting the natural color of the hair. This type of hair color typically lasts longer than semipermanent hair color but is not as long-lasting as permanent hair color. It is a good option for those who want to enhance their natural hair color or cover up gray hair without making a drastic change.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which type of haircolor lightens and deposits color at the same time and in a single process because it is more alkaline than no-lift deposit-only and is usually mixed with a higher-volume developer?

    • A.

      Temporary haircolor

    • B.

      Permanent haircolor

    • C.

      Semipermanent haircolor

    • D.

      Demipermanent haircolor

    Correct Answer
    B. Permanent haircolor
    Explanation
    Permanent haircolor is the correct answer because it lightens and deposits color at the same time and in a single process. It is more alkaline than no-lift deposit-only haircolor and is usually mixed with a higher-volume developer. This allows the color to penetrate the hair shaft and permanently change the natural color of the hair. Unlike temporary, semipermanent, and demipermanent haircolor, permanent haircolor provides long-lasting results that do not wash out easily.

    During the decolorization process, natural hair can go through as many as:

    • A.

      2 stages

    • B.

      2 stage

    • C.

      10 stages

    • D.

      5 stages

    Correct Answer
    C. 10 stages
    Explanation
    During the decolorization process, natural hair can go through as many as 10 stages. This means that the hair can be lightened up to 10 levels from its natural color. The stages refer to the different levels of lightening that the hair undergoes during the decolorization process. Each stage represents a significant change in hair color, with each stage being lighter than the previous one. Decolorization is a gradual process, and depending on the starting color of the hair, it may take multiple stages to achieve the desired lightness.

    Overlapping color can cause breakage and create a sign of roots or create:

    • A.

      Uniform color

    • B.

      A line of demarcation

    • C.

      A barrier line

    • D.

      Streaking 

    Correct Answer
    B. A line of demarcation
    Explanation
    Overlapping color can cause breakage and create a sign of a line of demarcation or roots. When hair color is applied over previously colored hair, especially if there's a significant color difference or regrowth, it can create a noticeable line of demarcation where the new color meets the old color or natural roots. This line can be unattractive and is a common issue in hair coloring.

      A red shade

    Correct Answer
    A. A blond shade
    Explanation

    To cover unpigmented hair in a salt-and-pepper client, the color formulation should be:

    • A.

      1 level darker than neutral

    • B.

      2 levels darker than neutral 

    • C.

      4 levels lighter than the neutral

    • D.

      2 levels darker than the desired

    Correct Answer
    B. 2 levels darker than neutral 
    Explanation
    To cover unpigmented hair in a salt-and-pepper client, the color formulation should be 2 levels darker than neutral. This is because unpigmented hair lacks color pigment, so a darker shade is needed to provide coverage and create a more uniform look. Going 2 levels darker than the neutral shade helps to ensure that the color will effectively cover the unpigmented areas and blend well with the existing salt-and-pepper hair.

    To produce a haircolor that looks natural, how many primary colors must be present?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. 3
    Explanation
    To produce a haircolor that looks natural, three primary colors must be present. Primary colors are the fundamental colors that cannot be created by mixing other colors. By combining the three primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) in different proportions, a wide range of haircolors can be achieved. This combination allows for the creation of various shades and tones that mimic the natural colors found in hair. Therefore, having three primary colors present is essential in achieving a natural-looking haircolor.

    The best way to obtain pale blond results is to use:

    • A.

      Temporary haircolor

    • B.

      Pure bleach

    • C.

      Single process blonding

    • D.

      Double process blonding 

    Correct Answer
    D. Double process blonding 
    Explanation
    Double process blonding is the best way to obtain pale blond results. Double process blonding involves two steps: first, the hair is bleached to remove the existing color, and then a toner is applied to achieve the desired pale blond shade. This process ensures that the hair is lightened enough to achieve a pale blond color and also helps to neutralize any unwanted brassy tones. Temporary haircolor, pure bleach, and single process blonding may not be as effective in achieving the desired pale blond results.

      Orange

    • B.

      Green

    • C.

      Yellow

    • D.

      Red

    Correct Answer
    C. Yellow
    Explanation
    When hair is violet, it is recommended to use yellow to balance it out. This is because yellow is the complementary color of violet on the color wheel. Complementary colors are opposite to each other on the color wheel and when used together, they can neutralize or cancel out each other's intensity. By using yellow, which is opposite to violet, it can help to counteract the violet tones in the hair and create a more balanced and harmonious color result.

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      Green

    Correct Answer
    A. Orange
    Explanation
    When hair is blue, it is recommended to use orange to balance it. This is because orange is the complementary color of blue on the color wheel. Complementary colors are opposite to each other on the color wheel and help neutralize or cancel out the appearance of each other. Therefore, using orange on blue hair can help counteract the blue tones and create a more balanced and natural-looking color.

    Explanation
    Selecting warm base colors generally creates brighter colors. Warm colors, such as reds, oranges, and yellows, tend to evoke feelings of warmth and energy. When combined or used as base colors, they can create vibrant and eye-catching color schemes. Cool colors, on the other hand, such as blues and greens, often convey a sense of calm and tranquility but may not result in as vibrant and bright combinations when used as base colors.

    • B.

      Neither deposits nor lifts

    • C.

      Lifts but does not deposit

    • D.

      Deposits but does not lift

    Correct Answer
    D. Deposits but does not lift
    Explanation
    Demipermanent haircolor is a type of haircolor that only deposits color onto the hair shaft and does not have the ability to lighten or lift the natural hair color. This means that it can only make the hair darker or change its tone, but it cannot lighten the hair or remove any existing color. Therefore, the correct answer is "deposits but does not lift."

      Look at the client through the mirror

    • B.

      Look at the client directly

    • C.

      Look only at the client hair

    • D.

      Avoid looking at the client 

    Correct Answer
    B. Look at the client directly
    Explanation
    During a hair color consultation, it is important to look at the client directly. This allows the hair colorist to observe the client's facial features, skin tone, and eye color in order to determine the most suitable hair color options. By directly looking at the client, the hair colorist can also engage in effective communication and understand the client's preferences and expectations better. This helps in providing personalized and satisfactory hair color services.

    Rate this question:

    Which of these words is the best choice to use when discussing haircolor with clients?

    • A.

      Good

    • B.

      Bleached

    • C.

      Soft

    • D.

      Frosted

    Correct Answer
    C. Soft
    Explanation
    When discussing haircolor with clients, using the word "soft" is the best choice. This term conveys a gentle and subtle approach to haircolor, suggesting a natural and blended result. It implies a softer and more natural look, which is often desired by clients. "Good" is too vague and does not specifically relate to haircolor. "Bleached" and "frosted" are more extreme techniques that may not be suitable for all clients.

    Rate this question:

    When performing a patch test, which color should you use?

    • A.

      The same color that will be used for the service

    • B.

      A shade slightly darker than the client's natural shade

    • C.

      A shade slightly lighter that the client's natural shade

    • D.

      The lightest shade available 

    Correct Answer
    A. The same color that will be used for the service
    Explanation
    When performing a patch test, it is important to use the same color that will be used for the service. This is because the patch test is done to check for any allergic reactions or sensitivity to the specific color product that will be used during the service. By using the same color, it ensures that the client's skin is tested against the exact product that will be applied, providing a more accurate assessment of any potential reactions.

    Hair that previously received a color service will have:

    • A.

      No porosity

    • B.

      A greater degree of porosity

    • C.

      A typical level or porosity 

    • D.

      Much less porosity 

    Correct Answer
    B. A greater degree of porosity
    Explanation
    Hair that previously received a color service will have a greater degree of porosity. This is because the hair cuticle is opened during the coloring process, allowing the color molecules to penetrate the hair shaft. This opening of the cuticle can cause the hair to become more porous, meaning it can absorb and release moisture more easily. As a result, colored hair may be more prone to damage and may require extra care and conditioning to maintain its health and appearance.

    Under-lightened hair is likely to appear to have more__than intended color.

    • A.

      Violet or blue

    • B.

      Orange or blue

    • C.

      Red or green

    • D.

      Yellow or orange

    Correct Answer
    D. Yellow or orange
    Explanation
    Under-lightened hair is likely to appear to have more yellow or orange than intended color. When hair is lightened, it goes through a process called oxidation, which removes the natural pigments from the hair. However, if the lightening process is not done correctly or for long enough, some underlying pigments may still be present, resulting in a yellow or orange tone. This can happen especially when trying to lighten dark hair or when using bleach. Violet or blue tones are usually used to counteract the yellow or orange tones in the hair.

    Which of these is a coloring technique that requires two separate procedures in which the hair is pre-lightened before the depositing color is applied?

    • A.

      Cap technique

    • B.

      Reverse highlighting

    • C.

      Double-process application 

    Correct Answer
    D. Double-process application 
    Explanation
    Double-process application is a coloring technique that requires two separate procedures. In this technique, the hair is first pre-lightened to remove the natural pigment before the desired color is applied. This is necessary because the pre-lightening process lightens the hair to a pale yellow or white shade, allowing the depositing color to show up more vibrantly. This technique is commonly used when a drastic color change is desired or when achieving a specific shade that is not naturally present in the hair.
