Spring Hair in the Air

With Spring literally right around the corner, it’s always a great time to look for fresh new hairstyles. Change is good. I have noticed a lot of golden tones in the hair for the up coming sun shine. Warmer Blondes and cooler undertones to contrast. Warming up a cooler blonde with a new tone is a great way to introduce the new color with out the strong commitment. I call them color glosses on my menu. They are great on your hair, as long as the integrity of the hair is in tact. Too much damage from too much lightening can compromise the hair and the new tone won’t take, because there is nothing left for it to stick too. That’s where damage repair glosses come in. We will get back to that in a bit. A color gloss, in my salon, can be done on your lunch time. It takes just under an hour for the whole process from application to shampoo, blow dry and OUT!!!! And you leave with a gorgeous new demi permanent color that last about 8 to 12 weeks. If you are working with damaged hair caused by too much heat application, say from a flat iron (yes, turn them down to 350 only) or the cuticle of the hair is blown out from too many highlight overlaps, you can also chose a clear gloss split end hair treatment. That can also be done in under an hour. And OMG! does your hair feel wonderful afterwards. I have several types of color gloss\ toners I work with, depending on the type of hair. Shades is one of my Favs and Pravana also has good choices. Talk to your hair stylist about them. I use a mixture of different formulas as no two heads are every the same. I very much recommend anything that uses a mixture of two chemicals be done by a professional. You may think our jobs are easy and you can do that your self, but that’s why we go to school and do continuing education. I would never in a million years just go out and build a rocket, put people in it and send it to space, if you know what I mean.                                               Shyne
