Hair color has come so far even in the past six or seven years that I've been doing hair. Even natural tones are richer, bolder, and more dimensional than ever before. Vivids last way longer than they used to, and color trends have evolved quickly and continuously. I'll let you in on a secret-all of my formulas are completely custom. Your formula is based on your natural color and undertones, your end goal, as well as your preferred maintenance schedule and routine. Customizing your color allows me to add more depth and dimension-this is NOT your mama's Loreal box dye (no shade). Ready to change your look? Keep scrolling to find the right style for you!
Global Color//Root Base Touch up
Global color is the simplest form of coloring, but that doesn't mean it's not fabulous! When you book for global color, I apply one color all over. Your formula is custom tailored to you! Global color touch ups are recommended every 4 weeks to stay fresh. For a rich chocolate brown, a bold red, or a natural looking copper, this is the way to go!
Root base touch ups are meant for guests covering grey or have been coloring their hair roots to ends one solid color, with no more than 2 inches of regrowth.
Ombre is often confused with balayage, because the outcome looks pretty similar! Ombres are a root color softly blended down into one or more other colors. Ombres can be subtle or vibrant, and they're incredibly dimensional. Ombres typically require a touch up on the roots every 4-6 weeks, and the end tones may require a refresher as well. If this technique sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee...), I recommend booking a consultation to discuss exact upkeep and hair goals!
Glosses, or toners, are demi permanent sheer colors that shift the tone of your hair. Glosses make your brassy hair caramel, your golden blonde buttery and soft, and basically cancel out any unwanted tones in the hair. Not only that, but glosses can help rebalance your hair's pH after a blonding service. This reseals the hair cuticle, adds shine, and helps maintain your hair's integrity. Glosses typically need to be refreshed every 4 weeks.
Vivids! These are your rainbows-your pinks, reds, blues, purples. The possibilities are endless! Vivids are a lot of fun, and they require a little extra TLC to stay looking fresh. Most vivid tones last 4-6 weeks, with pastels usually lasting 2-3. Once you receive a vivid application, it is strongly recommended that you wash your hair no more than once a week in cold water. Break out the dry shampoo and shower caps! My unicorns spend a little longer in the chair-for the best results, a perfect blonde canvas is a must. Once we've lightened your hair, the fun really gets started! Consultations are a must prior to booking a vivid application-let's talk about what your hair can safely do, how you can maintain it, and what your long term goals for your hair are.
We've all got some box dye in our past-no shame! Color corrections are necessary when your hair has unwanted bands of color, or if a DIY color job goes awry. If you have ashy-turned brassy locks, want to make a big change from dark to light, or have uneven or extensive color regrowth, a color correction may be in the cards. Color corrections are an intense process-they typically last 6-8 hours per session, and rarely are a one session fix to get to your end goal. Don't worry, though; I won't let you leave looking crazy! Every color correction is totally different, so please book a consultation first to discuss what is achievable for your hair and what that process will look like.
The color correction shown above took place over 7 appointments from October 2020 to May 2021.
