Summer Red Hair Color!

Single-process color can appear flat and one-dimensional. To avoid this, Joseph Kellner suggests layering several variations of scarlet over each other: It reads as one color, but it’s full of texture—it doesn’t feel like a block of red. Mixed one color for your clients scalp area and a lighter version of that for the rest of her head. Then added fine brownish-red lowlights throughout and put subtle highlights on her ends so that they don’t look too inky.  For a believable red you want to stay within your natural base color. If you’re a dark blond, golden copper is good because there are undertones of that in your hair already; if you’re a light brunette, opt for copper; if you’re a medium brunette, think auburn. There’s nothing prettier than a child’s sunny copper hair—it has so much dimension. When you are hair coloring never choose a level 3 levels lighter than your base color. You will acheive a financial commitment you are not ready for.

Instead of choosing hair color based on someone’s skin tone, I focus on their eyes. If you have yellow in your eyes—a golden brown or hazel—think warm reds.  If your eyes are black-brown or pale blue, go cooler. The reasoning for playing up peepers instead of skin. A lot of natural redheads have a pinkish complexion, but then others have a more golden one. People always find ways to modify their skin tone, whether it’s tinted moisturizer or self-tanner. For the ideal eye-enhancing shade of red, I recommends holding different colored hair swatches up to your forehead. Then, once you decide on your favorites, have your colorist do test strands.

Red is one of the most difficult colors to keep; it fades ultra fast, so you’ll want to use a pigment-protecting product with UV filters.  It’s also one of the most difficult colors to get away from. Red tends to leave a residue, especially on blond hair. Be willing to stay with a warmer version of whatever your color was before. Even if you were originally a brunette, you’re going to have an underlying red tone for a bit.

While infusing your hair with red takes a few hours, I don’t recommend stripping the hair. Wait until your hair has faded before going to the salon—you want Mother Nature to help you get back to where you want to go. Once you finally do visit the salon, I like to start with a gentle professional product to take the red out, then have you come back in after a day or two to apply a more intensive chemical remover. And what ever shade of red haircolor you choose, please remember to use Salon hair care for your artificial hair color. Joseph Kellner Salon in Orlando, Florida 32836.

Swimming plus hair can equal a mess of frizz. Are you searching for a specific hairstyle that can actually work while you swim in a pool or the ocean? Most people don’t care what their hair looks like while swimming, but others want to match their hair with the bathing suit style or keep bangs away from the face. What can you do?

Before dunking your head into a pool of chlorine or salt water make sure the head and scalp is fully protected. You can place a light conditioner application onto the entire head. Make sure to comb each application throughly from beginning to bottom of hair. The conditioner will help your hair from absorbing the chlorine, while the conditioner will help seal the cuticle and be your own hair barrier. This can be applied to wet or dry hair. I highly recommend Kalea Rose Passion Conditioner.

There are so many different hairstyles to choose from. Think of a style that would be easy for you to do, and how your hair reacts to it. One of the best styles for swimming is braids, which can be done on any length hair. When you braid the hair tight, this method can help the water from seeping into the cuticle and scalp. After you get out of the water, remove the braids from the head, shake, and run your fingers through it. You should now have a sexy beach wave style. You can do one big braid, braid on each side of head, a head full of braids, two ponytails with braids, french braid, boho braids, or side braid.

Trying to keep bangs away from the face you can gel them back and pin them to the side, or wear a cute headband to match the bathing suit. If you decide with 2 braids or ponytails, why not get matching ribbon to go with your swimwear? Simply create a bow, weave it through the braids, or make a headband out of it. Place the ribbon on like a headband, then tie it around the bottom of the nape area. Create a cute bow.
