Hair Color is Our Passion!
Feel like a change? A new hair color could be just the thing you need! Your hair color change need not be a dramatic transformation, even a subtle change in color can make a difference. If you want to show off your features, look a little younger or give hair volume and shine, hair color can help. Tell us your concerns and we'll make suggestions and go over the different options for hair color and their benefits. We can choose from permanent hair color or semi-permanent color, toners and glosses. Of course we can talk about lighteners too, such as highlights or adding more blonde to your hair.
YOUR GUIDE TO ALL THE HAIR COLOR LINGO
Single Process Color - One Hair Color All Over
Single process can mean a few things. A single process hair color service is one that can be processed in one step. A single development time, a single shampoo. An example of a single process color is all over color...one shade applied all over, covering the entire head. There are three levels of single process color: semi-permanent, demi-permanent, and permanent, each vary in strength and in how long they last. This process changes the color of your entire head of hair, giving you a new, one-dimensional tone.
A gloss service is a single process color but you get a two in one benefit. Using a demi-permanent color, color is applied all over the head with added shine and softness. So if you come in for a haircut in between your big color services, consider adding a gloss service to give your color a refresh. A demi-permanent gloss service is also a nice option for those who like dramatic color changes. If you go red during the winter and plan on lightening up in the spring, a demi-permanent color is easier for us to lift off later.
Double Process Color - 2 Step Hair Color
By contrast, a double process hair color service requires multiple steps. It's almost like getting two different services in one visit. The first step is applied, processed, and rinsed before the next process can begin.
Examples of a double process hair color:
- All over color + foil highlights. This service updates your overall base color before highlights are added.
- Bleach + Tone. This service lightens your entire head first, then a toner is applied to neutralize any harsh or brassy tones.
- Vivid Color. Typically, before a vivid hair color can be applied, the entire head must be lightened in order to create a light canvas and maximize color fidelity and intensity. Then pigment, or multiple pigments, is applied to create the desired look.
Grey Hair Coverage
Covering resistant grey hairs is a job best left to a skilled hair colorist. They can quickly get rid of unwanted white or grey hair with the correct formulation and a precision application. Your hair stylist can assess how your color varies around your head and make adjustments. This will assure there is no overlapping of color – often the result of using box hair dye - only beautiful healthy, shiny looking hair!
Transitional Grey Hair
The opposite of grey hair coverage here! Transitional Grey Hair is all about letting your grey hair grow in - without the awkward grow in phase. We'll analyze your grey roots to match your color and your natural salt and pepper pattern. Then leaving your roots alone, we'll color the rest of your hair. A transitional grey hair service can create a subtle low-maintenance look or it can take you straight to a dimensional silver! This is typically a multi-step service involving multiple methods to recreate the look of natural grey hair.
Root Touch Up - Cover New Growth
To avoid a color difference between your roots and the rest of your hair, it is important that you book a root touch up appointment at regular intervals. A root touch up service is designed to cover new growth and grey hair with single color applied to the roots.
Root Melt Hair Color
There are few names for this look. A rooted look, shadow root, root pull, or root smudge. As the name implies, it's all about the roots. This look is not the same as a root touch up. In fact, a root melt emphasizes the roots. After getting blonde highlights, some clients like to have a blended effect at the top of the head. They don't like the ribbon effect that foil highlights can reveal on some hair. A root melt service involves a demi or semi permanent hair color applied at the roots and pulled down a few inches. The rooted look gives you a lived-in hair color.
Vivid Hair Color, Fashion Colors
It's a new age in hair color. Wearing bright, funky hair color isn't so shocking anymore. From rainbow hair to subtle rose gold tones, there's no one way to play your fantasy hair color. Whether you're ready to dive into mermaid hair or experiment with softer shades of violet, pink or green hair color, we'll help you express your personal style!
We use high quality professional hair pigments which can be intermixed to create a completely unique look for you. They also fade true to tone over time, which means they'll wash out without losing the shade values. Your ocean blue won't turn into mint green!
We can do it, whether you want a a single vivid color or a rainbow of color. Mermaid hair, unicorn hair, Rihanna red, violet hair, purple hair, green hair, blue hair, granny grey hair, silver hair, metallic hair.
