1. CAN I GO RED?
Do you have warm or neutral skin tones? It’s time to consider going red! Red is a high impact haircolor that instantly grabs attention. This wild cherry haircolor goes great on anyone with warm or neutral skin tones, especially those with blue, green, hazel or warm brown eyes.
Want to go red but have cool or darker skin? Select cooler red tones like a red velvet haircolor. If you are fair or have a warm skin tone, you will want to select a warm red color like ginger, auburn or copper.
Haircare Tip: When going red, don’t forget that red haircolor is the fastest to fade. You’ll want to avoid over shampooing, and protect your color with sulfate free shampoo when it is wash day. Plus, be sure to see your stylist regularly for a refresh to keep your hair its best red.
2. DOES TECHNIQUE MATTER WHEN CHOOSING MY HAIRCOLOR?
The best approach to achieving haircolor that looks best is to be aware of the technique that will lead to a natural looking result.
Your stylist should work to highlight your facial features, natural hair fall and eye color when it comes to deciding what technique to use and where to lighten hair.
People of all skin tones benefit from the natural tones achieved through Balayage; the placement is key to enhancing natural beauty! Balayage is a natural “swept on” form of hair painting that enhances features by using open air processing, allowing for several levels of lift.
3. WHICH BLONDE DO I CHOOSE?
Cool blonde shades are great on porcelain-skinned gals with reddish undertones, since those icy hues tend to neutralize redness. If you have blue or gray eyes: cool, ashy blonde works perfectly! Suggested blonde tones include: Platinum ice, silver, ash, sand, beige or champagne.
