German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / Hair dyeing
German term or phrase: Schale
This is from a market research translation about hair colouring. There are several reference to a "Schale und Pinsel" used in the hair dyeing process, but I am not entirely sure how to translate this, never having dyed my silken locks before.

There is also a reference to a "Schüssel und Pinsel" - can I presume that this refers to the same thing?

Would appreciate any suggestions - particularly in the next 2/3 hours.

Many thanks
