TREAT YOURSELF TO THAT TRIM!

Treat Yourself to that trim

Ever feel like you're wasting your money when only getting a slight trim? Here's the way you should be looking at spending your hard-earned money on that needed, but only slight, trim.

You are paying your stylist not for the hair he/she is taking off, but for the hair that they are leaving on! It's the finished look.

While it is actually a myth that hair grows faster with regular cutting, regular trimmings do help those of us who want longer, healthier locks by keeping your hair free from split ends, which causes hair breakage. As your hair grows at it's usual pace at the roots, the bottom gets longer as a result of the ends staying healthy and not breaking off. That's how one gets long, healthy, beautiful hair. So keep those 6 week trims going. Remember, it's not what is taken off that you're paying for, but the healthy, luxurious hair you are leaving the salon with.

 

ALL ABOUT COLOR

Bleach, Color, Highlift and Toner

Having a bit of that "first time" anxiety? The truth is, having your hair colored for the first time can be nerve-racking. With so many options and variations, how can you end up with the look you want?

The key is to communicate with your colorist. Explain — or show your stylist a photo of — the look you're after so they can outline the options for getting there. An even better option is to ask your stylist to see a hair color swatch book. This is even a more accurate way of showing your colorist the color you are after instead of using a magazine photo as as special lighting and retouching can give an artificial and unobtainable color. To make sure the two of you are speaking the same language, it helps to know the lingo. Here is a primer:

Semi-Permanent: Semi-permanent color, which contains no ammonia and only a small percentage of peroxide, can only darken hair. Over time, the color fades to a translucent stain, but the roots need to be maintained to avoid a mismatched look. Semi-permanent is the least-damaging hair color process.

Demi-Permanent: This type of color is very good for covering gray; it can only darken hair, not lighten it. Roots need to be touched up every 4 to 6 weeks. The formulation contains peroxide, but no ammonia.

Permanent Color: Consists of both peroxide and ammonia, can make hair darker or up to 4 shades lighter, and provides excellent coverage for gray. The color is permanent as the name suggests and as the hair grows, the roots need to be touched up every 4 to 6 weeks.

Glossing/Glazing: This process involves placing semi-permanent color on the hair for a short period of time to darken hair slightly or to change its tonality (for example, changing an ash blond to golden brown). Clear glossing/glazing is also available to add shine to hair without altering the color. Gloss or glaze needs to be reapplied every few weeks.

Highlights: Highlights, which involve the use of bleach or permanent color to lighten hair, are great for blending grays on hair that is less than 30% gray. Any more than 30%gray hair should be colored first using a semi or permanent color, then hilited. The roots need to be touched up every three months.

Lowlights: Permanent or demi-permanent color is used to darken sections of over-lightened hair. Lowlights can also be used to blend grays. Roots should be touched up on an as-needed basis — usually at least every three months.

Highlights and lowlights add dimension and "shimmer" to your color. Use a single process permanent color to cover gray and highlights every 3rd appointment for that multi-dimensional effect.

 

SALON TIPS

Want to always get your first choice of appointment times with your stylist? ALWAYS book your next appointment before leaving the salon! Time has a habit of getting away from us. What we think was only 4 weeks ago most likely will be 8 weeks ago or better. Be sure to book your next cut or color before leaving the salon.

 

Remember to ask your stylist to recommend the correct shampoo, conditioner, and styling aids for your hair. You go to the doctor to discuss your medical symptoms, do the same with your stylist. Tell him or her how you feel about your hair and what you don't like, and let them provide you with the correct products to achieve the results you want. After all, you don't tell the doctor what to prescribe when you're not feeling like yourself...why "prescribe" your own hair necessities? Take advantage of your professional stylists knowledge and skills. It is just as important part of the service as your cut or color. It's not just about providing a service, but also educating our clients.
