Hair Colouring Techniques

To help you figure out which hair coloring technique is best for you, Anthony explains the common terminologies used by hair stylists, as well as tips on how to extend the life of your hair color.

Permanent Hair Coloring Technique:

Hair color (which is also referred to as a base color), is usually used to cover grey hairs. All hair color that is permanent is used to permanently color grey hair. Permanent hair color usually last 6-8 weeks and is true to tone, but it’s important to keep in mind that sunlight and salt water promote fading quicker. When you’re out in the sun always wear a hat to prevent fading your of your hair color.

Semi-Permanent Hair Coloring Technique:

Semi-permanent hair color is usually used to change a highlight color from gold to ashy or vice a versa. The semi-permanent hair coloring technique is a great way to enhance color without permanently altering the hair shaft (making it less drying or potentially damaging to your hair). Unfortunately, semi or demi-permanent hair coloring techniques result in hair colors that fade quicker. To prolong the vibrancy of your hair color, washing your hair with cold water can help extend the brilliance of your color.

Ombré Hair Coloring Technique:

Ombré is a hair coloring technique that mostly focuses lighter color at the ends of the hair shaft. This effect is most helpful if you’re trying to maintain a relaxed, grown-out look. Usually, when ombré hair coloring is done properly, it can last longer than normal highlights. Due to the nature of this hair coloring technique, you can draw-out the time between salon visits.

Highlighting Hair Coloring Technique:

Highlights are a more basic version of bleaching the hair and involves foils. Pieces of hair are woven to create soft effect using the foil as a heat catalyst to lighten pieces of hair. Usually highlights done with foil can last 6-8 weeks.

A great tip is to never re-bleach already bleached hair, as a way to avoid dryness. Also color doesn’t lighten with color, so keep in mind that you always have to bleach hair to lighten hair color.

There are many reasons why hair consumers want to change their natural hair color.  The reasons can range from wanting a new look to being bored with their natural color to wanting to cover gray.

Hair color is one of the easiest and quickest ways to instantly change your image.

Just think about all the celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson who have morphed through a wide range of hair color in a very short period of time.

Believe it or not there are many different methods for altering your natural hair color.

Types of Full Application Color

Hair color generally falls into the following categories:

Temporary

Lasts through 1-2 shampoos.  Coats outside of cuticle but does not usually contain peroxide or ammonia.  Will not lift color but will deepen, brighten or enhance existing color.

Semi-Permanent

Lasts 4-6 shampoos.  Coats outside of cuticle and down to next layer.  Generally is free of peroxide or ammonia.  May be more permanent in some situations if hair is overporous and allows color to stain deep into the hair shaft.

Demi-Permanent

Lingers through up to 20 shampoos.  Deposits color between cuticle and cortex.  May contain some peroxide and/or ammonia.

Permanent

Cuticle is opened and color is deposited down into the cortex.  Contains peroxide and ammonia. Color lasts until it grows out, is cut off or is re-colored.

Highlighting involves the systemic selection of specific strands in pre-defined locations on the head and then applying a chemical formulation that results in either lightening or darkening the target strands a number of levels.  When the strands are bleached and/or colored to be lighter than the base color, this is known as highlighting.

Conversely, when the target hair is colored to be darker than the base color it is known as lowlighting.  In some cases, hair is highlighted and low-lighted in the same dimensional color process.  Also, contrasting colors may be added.

For example, a blonde with a natural dark sandy base might be highlighted with light buttery blonde highlights, low-lighted with complementary caramels and punched up with a few strands of cherry or ruby red.  This would be defined as multi-dimensional color.

natural blondes have more range in terms of highlights and don’t have to adhere firmly to the three-shade rule. Gold and copper lowlights are best, especially for blondes with very fair skin. They prevent the color from becoming brassy and won’t wash out a pale complexion. When mixing highlights and lowlights, the colors should be well blended and natural. Also, don’t have the back of your head highlighted too heavily. The sun naturally lightens the front of your hair, so highlighting too much in the back will detract from the natural feel of your color.

The 7 biggest hair mistakes to avoid

The 7 biggest hair mistakes to avoid (and expert advice on how to fix them)

Generally, going a little darker in winter is best. Darker lights are better for skin that is often paler in winter and won’t drain the color from the face. In summer, try a lighter color of highlights. It’s best not to attempt highlights and lowlights at home. Unlike single-process color, it’s a customized process. Each shade must be carefully blended to enhance your hair color and complement your skin tone.

Hair color follows a variety of fashions and trends, just like clothes and shoes. This means that every season brings innovations from top colorists around the world. However, it’s really easy for the uninitiated to get lost in a sea of highlights, ombres and balayages. If you’re new to hair coloring or want to explore one of the latest techniques, we can help you pick the one that’s right for your new look.

All Over Color

Perhaps the most basic coloring technique is the all-over color. Essentially, this means that all of your hair is dyed the same shade. This is a straightforward technique that can completely revolutionize your look in a single afternoon, especially if you choose the right color. If you opt for this approach, be aware that you’ll have to visit the salon regularly to keep your look fresh.

Highlights and Lowlights

Highlights and lowlights are two more highly popular coloring techniques. Highlighting involves dying sections of your hair to be lighter than your natural hair color. Lowlighting does just the opposite by dying some sections darker than your natural color. Either technique can add tremendous dimension and texture to your hair. Other benefits include showcasing a favorite facial feature or making your face appear slimmer.

Balayage

Balayage is a particularly stylish highlighting technique. The word “balayage” translates to “paint” or “sweep” from French, and it’s the perfect name for this approach. A stylist lightly brushes or paints a lighter hair color or bleach onto the outermost layer of the hair. This gives a natural, sun-kissed look that really makes the hair glow.

Hair Painting

Fluid hair painting is an excellent choice for people who want a more adventurous look. Your stylist will “paint” color onto your hair. This technique makes it possible for the colorist to get really creative. Some of the latest trends like opal hair, which captures the multi-faceted colors of the opal gem, are created using this technique.

Ombre

The ombre coloring technique is being seen more frequently in magazines and on runways. With this style, the hair starts out darker at the root, then gets lighter and lighter with the tips being blonde or nearly blonde. This is a dramatic look that’s favored by many actresses and models.

From the simple application of a single color to the complicated painting of several hues onto various sections of hair, almost anything is possible with today’s sophisticated techniques. Ask marie or one of her team to help you create a one-of-a-kind look that is uniquely you!
