This spring you can expect to see many golden hues everywhere. Hair color will have the look of gold jewelry. Rose gold will especially be popular. In spirit of Spring 2012 I took Nina from dark/cool brown with red highlights to an all over lighter rose gold. This is just the beginning of her Spring 2012 hair color makeover. To protect the integrity of her hair we will be reaching her ideal color in the next two appointments.
As you can see in her after photo there are still remnants of the red, which actually worked in our favor. The small amount of red blended well with the lighter pieces creating a “rosy gold”.
When making an extreme change like this be sure to…
-Make an appointment with a professional colorist
– Clarify the hair before coloring
– Purchase a shampoo and conditioner filled with proteins like Davines Melu
– Apply a deep conditioner 1-2x a week
– Make an appointment for a haircut. *Be prepared to lose some length. The ends of your hair will have gone through some trauma.
– Prebook your next appointment for about 8 weeks.
In case you were wondering this is the inspiration photo we were working from….
In 8 weeks I will be coloring Nina’s hair using Product Club Color Acessories technique called, “Skylighting”. The technique was developed by Laurie Edwards. The Art of Highlighting Volume 2 “Go Fresco!” with Laurie Edwards. Skylighting is perfect for shifting your single process color clients into more adventurous color. It allows you to keep the base color darker but brighten it up a bit. Skylighting results in a rooty base with some diffused highlights and variations of depth that gradually transition to bright, fresh ends. Fresh ends is the key term here. Nina’s hair has been colored many times therefore her ends are extremely saturated. Skylighting will allow us to reverse this issue and give her color that most people yearn for!
