Joseph Kellner Haircolor advice in Orlando, Florida

When it comes to color, make sure you know what’s up. Joseph Kellner defines these phrases to avoid any trauma for you and your client.

Paper Thin Highlights: The subtlest form of highlights – more of a glisten than a noticeable line.

Gloss:  Shiny overlay on the hair.  Usually a finishing product for hair color and styling.

Glaze:  Semipermanent product used for adding shine and for protecting hair color from fading.

Color Bath:  Color applied over lathered up hair to adhear to pourous areas like faded hair, or to blend a highlight.

Fillers: These are used to even out hair color before using a permanent color.

 Oxidation:  A chemical change in hair color caused by air.  This usually results in the the yellowing of bright highlights.

 Dimensional Color:  Color that brings out the movement of a haircut.

Tipping: A lightening technique done by freehand with color.  Usually this technique is reserved for the ends of the hair or tips. When speaking to you client please, please make sure you are both on the same page before starting a haircolor service. Communication is a must. It can also save your ASS!

Men can look Younger with Hair Color!

Hey Guys! Our gray hair can make you look distinguished or it can make you look old and tired. Sometimes it lends credibility and other time it lands you a date at the retirement home for a 4 p.m.dinner.  I know guys who gray prematurely and find themselves mostly gray in their mid 30′s, and I also know guys in their late 40′s that have not shown any signs of graying–not fair, but true. Whatever you decide to do about it, you should feel comfortable with the decision.

Men and hair coloring have been taboo subjects. For some the conversation is just as “off the table” as the “don’t ask, don’t tell” gay policy for the military. But regardless of its status, men’s home hair coloring business is booming. According to industry experts, it grew by over 10% during 2012.

What is the right color for you!

Any of us could color our hair pink, green or black (if we wanted to) but depending on our hair color, the process varies from a simple one-step hair color to a more complicated double coloring process. This said, here are the colors that are easiest to achieve with one-step colors. Generally, for those with black hair, it’s easier to achieve shades of red and dark brown. For those with brown hair, coloring to achieve other shades of brown, blond, caramel, and red tends to be more straightforward.

Finally, men with blond hair can easily get their hair lightened or altered to browns and reds.Your choice of color should also be based on the analysis of your skin tone.
There’s no general rule in determining which hair color will suit your skin tone best.

 However, men with darker complexions look better with “cooler tones.” The most flattering coloring options for men with darker skin tones are golden highlights, golden with red highlights, golden brown, honey brown, chestnut, copper, auburn, mahogany, and warm tones of gray and white. On the other hand, guys with pale skin should opt for warmer colors. For more flattering results, choose colors such as plum, burgundy highlights, ash, platinum blond, brown, dark brown, black, slate, salt and pepper, and white.

Here are some tips about home hair color and read them wisely!

Your “natural” color is lighter than you think. Always go for a color that’s a shade lighter than what you think you need. The longer the stuff stays on your head the darker it becomes. So pay attention to time. Use a mirror and make sure you get the back of your head as well. Just because you can’t see back there, doesn’t mean the rest of the world cannot either. The dye will stain your skin, meaning anywhere it touches including your forehead, ears, hands. It also stains wood cabinets and even tile (don’t ask how I know.) The older you get the lighter your hair should be. If you are thinking of dying your hair, don’t wait until your head is completely gray or the change will be very drastic. “Whoa, what happened to you?” is not what you’re going for. Once you get started, you’ll need to do it every few weeks. It’s a commitment. Spend a few dollars and have a professional do it. You won’t regret it.

Good Luck!

Got a formal event coming up and not sure what to do with your hair? Nobody wants to head into a hair salon without an idea of what they want done and, if it’s something special like a wedding or formal event, it’s good to know what you like and what you think will suit your attire. As you aren’t likely to be attending a formal event every evening, it’s hard to get enough experience to be confident in what hairstyle you do want. Knowing what looks good and doing a bit of research is the best way to find a ‘do’ that suits you perfectly.

Great Hairstyles for Formal Events

Like with day-to-day hairstyles and cuts, what looks good is going to depend primarily on your face shape and what’s popular. Long-gone are the days of needing a perm to be fashionable – it seems like the 2000s ushered in a whole new era of ‘anything-goes’, meaning there are plenty of great looking, varied styles that you can choose from. Read on for a few ideas of how to make your hair look great for any occasion, and remember to talk to your hair salon’s stylist about the more intricate ways to dress up your style.

For Long Hair

Curls are big at the moment and, when you have long, flowing hair, can be great at bringing out your best features. They are a perfect way to frame the face, giving you a completely different look without having to make radical changes. The added texture will be fantastic with that new dress and, if you normally have straight or wavy hair, the noticeable change is sure to turn a few heads.

For Medium Hair

Wearing your hair up in a bun or clutched at the back can be the perfect start to your formal hairstyle. Adding flowers or pins that match your dress is an excellent way to further coordinate and tie your outfit together. A French plait or simple braids can add more interest and texture, especially if you have a wider face.

For Short Hair

Some people worry that there is no good formal hairstyle for shorter hair, but with a bit of mousse or styling product you can create a fantastic short, straight and gorgeous look with ease. Let your hair accentuate your facial features and style around them – bob and pixie cuts are popular at the moment and look amazing with very little effort.

If you have an event coming up then have a look online and in magazines for formal hairstyles that you think will suit you. Remember to pay close attention to what works with what face shape and get some idea of what you’re after before you visit your stylist.


Best Haircare Advice In Orlando, Florida 32836 Joseph Kellner

If you reach for a curling iron, flat-iron, or other heat-styling tools daily, learn how to protect your hair. Using a heat-protectant spray will save your locks from turning frizzy, dry, and brittle.

I first learned about protecting my hair from heat from my wedding hair stylist. Because I chose a hairstyle full of curls, this product saved my long hair from unwanted damage. Since the wedding, I’ve used the spray to not only protect my hair, but also to make my curls last all day and night. Here’s how I recommend to do the process!

Prep Your Hair – If you’ve just washed your hair, dry it. Use a towel to blot out the water, and then use a blow dryer on a low, cool setting. Although this process isn’t speedy, it will do less damage to your hair. Cool air smooths the cuticle, leaving you with shinier tresses.

Make Small Sections – Next, thoroughly comb your hair and divide out the first small section to style. Whether you’re using a curling iron, flat-iron, crimper, or other heat-styling tool, you’ll want to apply it to one small section of hair at a time.

Hold the Hair – Place the hair in the heat styling tool  and slide it to the end of the hair so you can hold the hair away from your head. Spray a fine mist of heat protectant along the length of the hair. Keep the bottle of spray at least 12 inches away from the hair so the spray isn’t concentrated on one small area of hair. I recommend a dry lightweight aerosol hair spray.

Style the Hair – Now, style your hair. Twist the barrel of the curling iron to loop the hair onto itself, or pull the flat-iron slowly down the length of the hair. After styling that one section, repeat this spray-and-style process until you’ve finished. If you’re creating curls, leave them intact until you’re done using the heat-styling tools.

Set the Look – Finally, spray a fine mist of hairspray over the heat-styled areas. Now, use your fingers or a pick to break apart the curls or blend straightened hair. Finish the look by adding hair accessories if desired. Usually, a final mist of hairspray is unneeded because heat-protectant sprays add rigidity to the hair.



More Homemade Hair Treatments from Joseph Kellner in Orlando Florida


For Dry or Sun-Damaged Hair  Whatever your hair-dehydrating demon—hard water, sun overexposure, your trusty flat iron—nature’s sweetener can help. “Honey is a natural humectant, which means it attracts and locks in moisture”.  Massage approximately 1/2 cup honey into clean, damp hair, let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. You can also add 1 to 2 Tbsp olive oil to loosen the honey for easier application. For extremely sun-damaged hair, trying mixing honey with 1 to 2 Tbsp of a protein-rich ingredient, like avocado or egg yolk, which will help replenish the keratin protein bonds that UV rays attack. Treatment can be applied once a month.

For Oily or Greasy Hair   Used properly, [cornmeal or cornstarch] is an inexpensive way to remove oil and grease. Pour 1 Tbsp cornmeal or cornstarch into an empty salt or pepper shaker and sprinkle onto dry hair and scalp until you’ve used it all. After 10 minutes, use a paddle hairbrush to completely brush it out. Treatment can be applied every other day.

For Frizzy Hair   I swear by avocado—and not just to repair damaged hair. Its oils (which are light and moist like our own natural skin secretions) and proteins boast the best combination of nutrients for smoothing and weighing down unruly hair. Mash up half an avocado and massage into clean, damp hair. Let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing with water. Amp up moisturizing power by combining mashed avocado with 1 to 2 Tbsp of a hydrating ingredient, like sour cream, egg yolks or mayonnaise. Treatment can be applied every two weeks.

For Residue-Ridden Hair   Nothing eats through product buildup like baking soda! Mix 1 to 2 Tbsp baking soda with small amounts of water until a thick paste forms. Massage into damp hair and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with water, then shampoo hair. Treatment can be applied every two weeks.

Spice Up Your Brown Hair Color

It’s often said that brunettes have even more fun than blondes. If you’re getting a bit bored with your brown hair, though, you may be looking for a change. Here are some tips on how to liven up brown hair shades.

Add Highlights or Lowlights
One of the best ways to add texture and dimension to brown hair is to add highlights or lowlights. Whether you opt for honey blonde or vibrant red highlights or lowlights in a darker shade of brown, adding streaks to your hair can be a great way to liven up a mousy brown hair shade. Keep in mind that you can ask your stylist for thick chunky highlights or thin natural highlights.

Consider Going Darker or Lighter
There are many beautiful brown shades out there to choose from, so don’t feel like you are limited to just one! Coloring your hair lighter or darker can give you a fun new look. Whether you opt for a luscious shade of dark chocolate brown or a light golden brown, you will find plenty of brown hair shades to explore.If you’re thinking about coloring your hair, you may want to think about trying out a trendy shade. Caramel brown hair color can be an ideal option if you have an olive skin tone, like Jessica Alba, or a darker skin tone, like Beyoncé Knowles. Shades of mocha and bronze are also very “in” right now. If you are considering a reddish shade of brown, you may want to consider a shade of cherry chocolate brown.

Light Brown Hair Shades
If you have light brown hair, your best bet is to opt for blonde highlights. Although the general rule of thumb is to opt for highlights which are no more than two shades lighter than your base color, platinum or honey blonde highlights tend to look very natural on women with light brown hair color. Not into blonde highlights? Red highlights can also look beautiful on women with light brown hair shades.

Medium Brown Hair Shades
If you have medium brown hair color, you generally need to be careful about the color of highlights that you choose. It can be easy to misjudge what shade will look right on you, and platinum blonde highlights can look too dramatic. Shades of golden blonde and dark blonde can be ideal. If you have a medium chocolate brown hair color, light auburn highlights can also be a good option.

Darkest Brown Hair Shades
It can seem difficult to find highlight colors for darkest brown, or nearly black, hair shades. Shades like caramel brown and mocha are good alternatives to blonde and are ideal for lightening up. If you would prefer red highlights, consider a shade of copper or mahogany. Since darkest brown hair shades can be difficult to color over top of, it’s ideal to make an appointment with a hair stylist.

Hair Colors for a Younger Look

When we say hair color, it does not only mean hiding the grays. There are many color palates that can transform your look, back to the good old ‘looking-pretty’ days! Yes, before we begin we would like to share some tips that can be useful. Opt for a good haircut that will make you look younger. Trust me with a bad cut, even the best of hair colors will not help, so make sure you get that right. Cover your grays, these hair color ideas for gray hair can help you. Even if the hair is thinning, graying, keep them nourished and healthy. Once you get this on track, you can crown them with some cool shades of hair color.

Earths and Browns: Most of us think natural is the best, and hair colors in brown shades give just enough warmth, to keep you looking younger. In case of browns choose something that is not extremely contrasting to your natural hair color and skin tone. Two shades lighter than your original hair color will give you a decent warm look. Opt for smooth chocolate shades, honey brown, golden brown and light brown to ash brown shades. The pigmentation on the skin tends to fade away as we age, so brightening up the pale look is important. These shades will give you just the right amount of glow.

Subtle Reds: Yes, you still can play with some hot red shades of hair color. Though some care needs to be taken when choosing them. Bright funky reds are a big no! Do not even try highlighting a chunk of hair or few strands in dark and funky red. Use subtle tones and warm tones close to brown and not contrasting to the hair color. Auburn shades and shades in reddish brown can give you a chic look. With a stylish hair style, reds can do well to create a younger look.

Golden Blondes: If you have lighter colored hair, blonde shades can be your hair color for a younger look. Here again make sure you do not create contrasts. While choosing the shades, do not color in pale blondes and very light tones. Keep two shades darker or lighter from the original hair color. Shades like honey blonde and golden blonde, and dark natural blondes can go well for highlights giving you a sun kissed appearance. For low lights (darker shade than your natural hair color) you can try beige natural blonde or dark natural blonde. Stay away from ash blondes and platinum blondes. Try to get low lights when you have light blonde hair, darker shades will create depth in the overall look. These colors will add the glow to your face and instantly brighten up a dull and old look.
