Hair Coloring Options to Choose

Does this mistake sound familiar? When your new hair color is too extreme, it doesn't compliment your natural shade and before you know it - unwanted oxidation sets in or blue catastrophe strikes back!

Ask your hairstylist to add depth to your hair if you are a natural blonde with golden hues or try adding a few streaks to wake up the office and the home front. We commonly use a color that is at least one shade lighter than your natural hair to avoid having it look dyed. What about brunettes? Brunettes look stunning with rich tones, but look out for a polished or “inky” after effect because it reveals unwanted hair coloring fast! Ask your hairstylist what I mean by that - they’ll tell you.

Your new color shouldn’t look too washed out at the end of your appoint as well. Your stylist should have expert technique at every stage and consider your hair type, color, and facial tones before recommending a color. In the end your new look should maintain a level of natural contrast.

The adage “You get what you pay for” holds particularly true for hair products. When you ask an experienced stylist to recommend a product you will avoid this common mistake.
