Can we choose whatever color we want?

Wrong. The choice of the hair color has to be done according to your natural Hair color. If the hair coloration is lighter for more than 5 tones one simple coloring won’t be enough to achieve the results   we want. We would need to do a bleaching remover and then the coloration.

Does the hair coloring damage the hair?

Right and wrong. You hair stylist should always proceed to do a hair diagnostic about the nature of your hair and the condition to offer you the color that will be the most adaptive to your case. A color that is going to be realized in the same tone of your natural hair or just to add a reflection or just going to be two toned lighting will not damage the hair. Because today also the new product formulation, they add oil inside and always treatment inside the color by itself. The coloration makes the hair more sensitive as soon as you in a lightning technique. If it’s true that the hair even when it is natural needs treatment as soon as you start to manipulate the follicles of the hair in an important way the treatment is necessary, otherwise you lose the shine that you expect from your hair coloring. And then, you don’t get the reflection that you were looking for.

Is it important to use specific treatment for hair color?

Right. The color of the hair needs a close protection. Colored hair is more sensitive to aggression because it is fragile because of the action of the color product that opens the cuticle that we need to open for the  pigment of the color. The shampoo and treatment specific for color treated hair fill up and close the cuticle of the hair and by this it protects durability for a long time the shine and vibrancy of the color reflection.

Never color your hair before going under the sun?

Wrong. If in reasonable dose the sun is not bad for the hair, on the contrary it gives a natural reflect and helps with the vitamin D synthesis it makes hair grow fast. When you use too much sun then the sun can become your hairs enemy in that case you need to protect your hair the same way you protect your skin by using hair solar product . This will avoid that you have to cut your hair at the return of your vacation. On colored hair your hair is already more sensitive by the coloration ingredient and the damage of the sun if you don’t do anything it will be an increase. This is one more reason to do something before and after you go into the sun. What is very important is to rinse your hair after you swim systematically with regular water, dry your hair as much as possible with the towel and apply right after a sun protection on your hair. When the sun is very strong you should wear a hat that is going to also protect your color and your scalp against sunburn.

Is it important to change your eyebrow color and make-up for good results with your color?

Right and wrong. Everything depends in the difference between your natural color and the hair color you will hair after hair coloring. If it is a light difference just a few tones you do not need to dye your eyebrows, on the contrary if the change is important you need to adapt your eyebrow or with waxing to make your eyebrow thinner or with the coloration.  Also this theory has to be case by case. It is important also to reflect your makeup for more harmony to match with your hair coloring style.

Ombre Hair Color Technique at Avant-Garde Salon and Spa

Ombre hair is that half brown, half blonde look where the tips of your hair look ‘dipped’. The style is sexy in an edgy way. Ombre is a French word that literally means shaded and it is a hot trend in hair color this year.

We think it’s important to share with people considering Ombre is that it is not something you want to try at home. This is a coloring technique has to be done properly or else you’ll end up looking like you have over-grown roots. The difference with over-grown roots is that over-grown roots typically look like two colors that don’t match with a distinct borderline. When our colorists do Ombre at Avant-Garde Hair Salon, it is obvious that the effect was intended.

Most people ask to see samples of a salon and Colorists work, so we’re pleased to share this video by clicking the link below to be taken to our Official Avant-Garde YouTube Channel and watch our team perform Ombre on the girl below.

Ombre color done at Avant-Garde Salon and Spa. Notice the dramatic color contrast between her roots and her ends, but because the transition is gradual (this is really key), it’s not a harsh look.

The Ombre is meant to be a gradual fade of color that should be feathery and subtle. There should be no in-between. The colors must be chosen wisely so it’s definitely a smart move to have a professional Colorist do this for you. The colors chosen must complement and fade into each other.

So why should you give the Ombre technique a try?

  • It’s a low-maintenance hair color technique.

Ombre is a fairly easy hair color look to keep up. For the least maintenance, go as close to your natural hair color as possible near your roots, then gradually go lighter down the hair shaft.

  • Use it as anti-aging hair color trick.

Ombre is actually a way to imitate the hair color of your childhood. Remember when you’d get so much sun in the summer that your hair would naturally lighten? Ombre hair color gives off that youthful look.

  • It is an easy way to grow out your roots.

The whole purpose of the effect is to make it look like you’re growing out your roots on purpose.

  • Ombre is a sexy and edgy trend.

This can be a fresh and unique look for you. It’s casual and looks like you’ve been at the beach all summer. When done right, it’s an extremely flattering way to “go lighter.” If you’re thinking about going blonde but feared that it wouldn’t work with your complexion, Ombre hair color is a nice compromise.

Here are some celebrities that have had Ombre done to their hair.

They try to conserve money.

  1. They don’t have time to get to the salon.
  2. They have a friend who can ‘do it’ for them.
  3. They did their own color at home
  4. They went to another salon where the didn`t have stylist color experience

Coloring hair is a complicated process since a stylist needs to know the chemical and color charts and be familiar with the different level of peroxides needed for different hair types. Processing time is also something that has to be monitored closely.

Here’s the good news…bad hair color can be fixed; however, there are some things you’d need to know and prepare for:

  1. You’ll need to find an experienced stylist that specializes in color correction. Why? Because not every stylist or colorist can repair a bad color job. A stylist must prepare for this process and they really do need to know their color and chemical charts.
  2. Fixing color is not a one-time process. Therefore, as a client, you should be prepared for a few visits to correct your hair color and keep your hair looking healthy. This also means that you need to be prepared to make a financial commitment to repair your appearance as you’ll be paying for the colorist’s knowledge and expertise.
  3. Get over the embarrassment of coming in and asking someone to fix your hair. We’ve come across lots of customers who said they were too embarrassed to come to a salon to fix their color so they thought they would keep trying on their own. Once they took the initiative to get their color fixed, they were thrilled at how they looked when the process was done and vowed to never let an inexperienced colorist touch their hair again.
  4. You need to be comfortable and willing to try different suggestions because your hair will react differently through the color correction process. Your color might not be able to be corrected during your first visit, so you’ll need to be patient during the process. Often times there has been such a bad build-up of color and the hair is fried or damaged as a result of poor color processing so deep –conditioning treatments might be necessary as well.

Because hair color is often considered and art, you’ll need to find a good salon and stylist and stick with that person through the color correction process.

Why? Because you need someone who will be honest with you and experienced enough to take you through the color correction process. For example, there are different levels of peroxide used in color correction and your stylist needs to know what to do to keep your hair from getting any further damaged during the correction process and how to remove all the different tones that might be in your hair. You’ll need to find a salon that carries a quality hair color – this author uses and recommends Goldwell for hair color in general – especially when fixing someone’s hair color.

As a colorist and stylist for several local television personalities and with lots of experience correcting hair color, I find it very satisfying and rewarding to correct someone’s hair color. Transforming someone’s appearance and giving them that feeling of confidence is extremely rewarding for me.

If you aren’t completely satisfied with your hair color and are looking for a knowledgeable stylist or colorist, I encourage you to give me a call and schedule a consultation where I can look at your hair and determine the best way to start the color correction process. If you’re willing to put your hair in my hands, I can assure you we’ll fix your color and we’ll get you that look you were trying to achieve. It might take a little time and a few visits, but the final result will be worth it.

Remember, coloring your own hair might be inexpensive but when you need to fix it, it can get pretty costly as you’ll need to invest additional time and money. So, we recommend that if you’ve never colored your hair, that you start out properly and start with a professional who has lots of experience with hair color and chemicals.
