Hair Color Before And After Part Two

Two weeks ago I made a blog on my model who is having hair color correction. The other day we went to work on the hair by adding low lights to the hair color to start giving it a fall color and added dimension. Which it lacked.  We added low lights to the hair which was in the level seven family and also added a ash color to complement it. We have finally cancelled out all of the yellow in her hair. The next appointment will be for highlights. To soften the dark root color.  I gave the client a bottle of Frost hair color toner to use every week. This will keep her hair color on mark and will stop all fading of it also.

This toner is used for pre-lightened hair. It’s a great hair product that won’t damage your hair! It actually restores the pH balance of your hair and makes it oh so soft. It improves the quality and shine of your hair while soothing your scalp all at the same time!!

Go To A Professional Hairdresser!

A new customer contacted me from my website josephkellner.com

She asked me could she make an appointment and she did. Her hair color was 70% grey and on a level 5-6 on the warm side.  The rest of her hair from mid-shaft to ends was a dirty blonde and very, very dry. Her hair was naturally wavy and with medium thickness. She asked me to cancel out the red base she got from using a product recommended for her hair to lift and tone to a level 6 cool. I believe that when a person goes into a store such as Sally’s you don’t get a professional answer. For one thing the clerks are paid horribly and usually they are a beauty school drop out. So having said that I told her I could do the job. for her and this would be a corrective hair color service. $$$$ Here we go.

Simply starting with just a simple foil highlight to help reduce the red copper on her roots, and also touching the past foil highlight she had done. I used also a low light indiscriminately all over which was a level 7 neutral. Finishing the foil light I proceeded to place a level 7-8 blue-green on the roots and the new growth of the hair. Mind you she was a home hair-color job, where she got the color and advice from a sally’s employee. I processed the hair for 35 minutes.

We proceeded to cut the hair a good amount, and then we did our blow out. I recommended the Shea Moisture Shampoo to her for her hair type and condition.

DRY, DAMAGED OR TRANSITIONING HAIR
Our Sulfate-Free shampoo helps to give moisture to dry damaged or over-processed hair. Perfect for transitioning chemically treated hair to natural. So the customer was happy and make sure if you go to Sally’s don’t ask a clerk about hair color.  Go to a professional Hairdresser!

When You Change Your Hair For Summer

Some of my clients favorite beauty traditions is getting their hair brightened in preparation for summer months. The physical shift never fails to get them excited for cookouts, picnics, and longer days, but they have experienced a mental shift when it comes to maintaining it. While it’s easy for me to see the hours spent at the hair salon as the start-to-finish of their hair coloring process, it’s really just the first step in maintaining healthy, beautiful hair for summer. Here are some idea’s to keep your hair color in top condition.

Bleach breaks down your hair, making it brittle and dry so stay away from protein hair care lines. Although purple and blue shampoos have recently become a popular method of keeping blonde highlights from turning brassy, they can still strip color from your hair. And it can also make you blonde hair color look ashy. Use a color treated shampoo and conditioner.

And just because one brand works for someone else, does not necessarily mean it’ll work as well for yours. So shop around and have a few different hair care lines in your shower.

In general, I recommend switching up your shampoo every 6 to 12 months. Each shampoo has different minerals and proteins so your hair will get a more well-rounded treatment of both when you rotate the brand you’re using.

When it comes to heat-styling your hair, go easy on the strands near your hairline by using a lower heat setting. When you lighten your hair, your strands actually become finer and more fragile. To avoid breakage, don’t run that flatiron over your lightened hair multiple times  (in fact, I highly recommend not using a flatiron if possible and just using a curling iron or wand). If you really need one, try doing a single pass for those hairs that frame your face.

A fresh cut or color is the perfect opportunity to switch up your makeup—I’ve HAVE clients gravitating towards a bold red lip color, as it makes their face look even brighter with their blonde hair! And switch up your outfits as a white top will always make your hair look brighter, and vice versa.  The biggest change I notice in MY  clients after they get their hair colored is how their mood and demeanor immediately lifts—embrace your new hair color and the confidence it gives you!

Graphene Hair Dye Is Coming, And It Looks Incredible

A research team at Northwestern University has discovered a way to use sheets of graphene to dye hair. Unlike current chemical hair coloring products, the scientists report in the journal Chem that their new dye is nontoxic, antibacterial, antistatic, and you can apply it yourself with a spray. It looks like we can add “the holy grail of hair color” to graphene’s seemingly endless list of applications.

This is how it works: The user applies the graphene dye using a spray, then brushes the hair and dries it. The graphene forms a gentle film around each and every hair strand. Like in a sci-fi movie, your hair will change color before your very eyes as the sheets of graphene attach themselves to your mane. And since the research team says their method doesn’t require toxic solvents, or molecular ingredients, or extreme heat, you don’t have to worry about damaging your hair, skin, or yourself. The color lasts for at least 30 washes, like what you expect from any conventional chemical-based dye. The graphene material will disappear leaving your hair in the exact same state as it was when you applied it.

Your graphene-enhanced superhero hair will also have some other super powers. First, it’s anti-static–so you can say goodbye to flyaway hairs. Secondly, it’s antibacterial–your hair will stay cleaner longer. Third: thermal regulation capabilities. In theory, your graphene-enhanced hair will be able to regulate the heat on your head better than your regular hair.

The fourth power is quite intriguing. The Northwestern team mentions that your graphene-treated hair will be able to interface with electronic components, since the coating can carry an electrical current. I can’t imagine the potential applications for this one–beyond adding LED beads that could display different colors depending on the thermal conditions of your scalp (purple for anger, for instance, or green for happiness).

So when will you be able to pick up a box of this dye at Walgreens? I asked Jiaxing Huang, research lead and professor of materials science and engineering in Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering: “I am optimistic,” he says, although he couldn’t give me a precise timeline yet. There’s no word on potential price points for a final product either. Right now, the main problem holding them back is the available colors. Their graphene-based dye comes in different shades of black and brown at the moment. There’s no blonde, red, or any other hue. However, Huang tells me that they already have some ideas about how to solve this: “Once we secure research funding to work on this, we expect [the other colors] can happen within a few years.”

So we’ll have to wait at least “a few years” for the perfect cyber dye job. Until then, the closest thing to a holy grail of hair color is still at the salon.

Hair Color Idea’s For This Year

If there’s one thing in beauty girls are obsessed with it’s our HAIR. Everything else can go wrong, but when it’s your HAIR STYLE then you know it’s not going to be a good day. I get you! Woman want perfect hair without the effort, but did you know picking the right tones can actually make this easier? Picking the right tones can take your hair from drab to fab. So reinvent yourself with a new hair color.

Blonde Hair Tones In Natural Way.  If you were born blonde, you will know that the only color that suits you will be blonde. So, you can’t exactly be creative with your hair colors. But you can be creative with the blonde tones you work with. Bleach blonde hair is out and it’s all about warm tones rather than the Elsa icy hair. Make your blonde hair look more natural with a lot of different colors and tones running through it – so even if you’re deciding to go blonde, then this will make it look the most natural!

 

Chestnut Colors For Dark Brown Hair Color.  Ok, so if you have really dark hair you want options to change your one tone colored look into a more vibrant, fun finish. And it can be quite difficult to do as mixing colors with your dark hair can either go really well or really bad. Blend in up to three shades lighter than your actual color to create a finish that gives your hair some life and warmth.

 

Balayage Hair Coloring Techniques. Yes, they’re back! And they’re going to be just as popular next year as they were this year. Long gone are the days where we just stick to one-toned hair. Instead, we know that natural, beautiful hair is mixed with a combination of different colors. If you’re a hazel brunette this color will be perfect for you to pull off and give your hair the boost it needs.

Warm Golds And Reds For Brunettes. For light brunettes, this is a very popular hairstyle because it’s easy, stylish and trendy. But rather than blending all of these tones throughout the hair you want to do a dip-dye effect with these warmer tones towards the bottom of your hair. And whilst many people think they should dye their darker in their winter, they’re wrong. As our complexions get lighter so should our hair, which will keep you from getting too pale. Mix caramel highlights with this and you’re a winner!

Hair Care – Hair Care – Hair Care!

Joseph Kellner

Hair can become dry looking and loose pretty much all shine. Especially when the hair is over colored. Maintaining hair color and also leaving it with shine can be a nightmare. It comes to me working in a salon and the expectations of all clients can be so unreal at times. Photo-shopped photographs are a day in and day out experience and asking for unreal expectations during a one time appointment is shocking. But there will be stylists who cannot say no and will end up in my salon chair doing corrective hair coloring. Here are some tips if you have colored treated hair. Colored treated can and will lose its luster and shine if the hair is overly colored. I recommend to you less peroxide hair coloring THAN WHAT IT NEEDED.

Condition your hair after every shine shampoo. Shampoos weaken the hair’s outer cuticle layer while conditioners help to restore their natural smooth configuration.

Hair needs to be healthy to show its natural luster. The regular use of hair conditioners, shine shampoos and treatments goes a long way toward keeping the luster in your hair

The hair ends are especially prone to a loss of luster. If using a shine shampoo doesn’t help, cutting the hair ends regularly is a very efficient remedy for dull looking ends.

Also avoid stress to your hair structure as much as possible. Hair accessories such as scrunchies and bobby pins can harm the hair structure and dull your hair. Improper brushing or brushing too frequently also reduces the hair’s natural luster and steals the shine shampoo provides.

Use extra-gloss hairspray after styling. Modern styling products contains light-reflecting ingredients and can provide instant luster in conjunction with shiny hair shampoo.
