Simple Ways to Spice Up Your Fall Haircolor with Heather Nieves and Mara Solano

For many of us, coloring our hair is a monthly necessity, but have you ever considered it an accessory?  Just like we add earrings or a necklace to add sparkle to our look, hair color can be used in the same way.  There are several ways this can be accomplished, and these are some of the more common ways;

  1. Accent pieces- these are strategically placed foils that can allow the chosen color to “pop” from the rest of the hair. These are great for anyone who is color shy, or on the more conservative side.  Hair dipping-this technique focuses the color from the middle of the hair shaft to the bottom.  This can be done on random strands for a more natural effect or all the strands for a more dramatic effect that would mimic your ends being “dipped” in color.  Ombre-similar to hair dipping, this technique creates a more natural, sunkissed finish where the color gradually becomes lighter or more vibrant towards the ends. 
Pairing these techniques with a fun color is the ultimate hair accessory for the holidays!  Brunettes may consider adding an accent piece in a deep violet, crimson red, or jade green.  Blondes may consider pastel tones of pink or lavender, For those who aren’t as daring, imagine your copper hair with a beautiful piece of strawberry peeking out, or a chocolate brown flowing into rich amber ends.  There is an option for everyone. Color is meant to be fun & expressive!

Properly maintaining your new color is imperative to making the results last.  Highlights may require a glaze in between touch-up services. This helps to keep the vibrancy and shine of your new color. In addition, home care is just as important.  We offer several products to address all hair types. Some of our most recommended are L’Oreal Professional Vitamino Color Shampoo and Conditioner or Lumino Contrast Shampoo and Treatment. From our Label M Line, we like the Color Stay Shampoo and Conditioner.  Remember that heat styling can cause color fading! For this, we recommend always treating your hair with a heat protectant before blowdrying. For this, we love Label M’s Heat Protecting Spray or Black Miracle Treatment.

The holidays are fast approaching. When will you choose to accessorize your hair? Book an appointment with one of our talented colorists today. Let the festivities begin!
