Hair color

 

 

 

 

 

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.

strands of hair strategically distributed create depth,dimension and enhance light and movement of the hair.

This technique is about lightning the hair partially with a few pieces of hair. It has to be in a coordinated order.

The stylist adds on the top of he hair to give contrast more or less discrete from your color even if your color is not natural.

We are talking about highlights when this technique is applied on the full head not only on the top of the head which as a result has a deeper visual effect.

We are talking about flash when this technique is applied only 4 or 5 pieces of hair around the face just for a lighter effect.

The Balayage brings a sun kissed effect to the hair to look like you have a natural glow.

The balayage is known to be as if you came from a sunny vacation. The balayage is a good technique to hide white hair when you are blonde. It can also be used to bring volume to thin hair because you can play with shadow and light.

The Balayage is perfect to enhance the look of your haircut, shape and style.

Trendy hair color for the falls by Your Salon Miami .

imageThe prettiest hair color for falls

Rose gold

“This season is all about rose-gold locks,” according to our Best  hair colorist specialists in Avant-Garde salon and spa Miami  as you can see on Jessica Chastain. We will recommend to finish the look with some  highlights topped with a demi-permanent gloss that’s blended with an even mix of gold and copper hues. It ‘s pretty with any skin tones  and the maintenance level is very low . Ideal for young clients who are looking for a change ,without going back to their salon every month .

Platinum is still having its moment, but for dark blondes and light to medium brunettes who don’t want to commit to the maintenance it requires, try wheat blonde. It’s brighter and more buttery than dirty blonde with hints of light brown color peeking out at the roots or underneath. Maintenance level: medium.

Bronze

Brunettes seeking an instant face brightener should ask their colorist for bronze and golden highlights placed on the mid-shaft to the ends of their hair, says Goodwin. “It’s the perfect way to lighten your color and still look natural,” says Cunningham. Jessica Biel nails the look. Maintenance level: medium.

Dark highlight
All-over dark hair color can be severe; breaking it up with subtle chocolate highlights brightens it up and adds gorgeous dimension. The best part? Upkeep is minimal, since the highlights look most natural when they start mid-shaft and frame the face. Lily Aldridge is a perfect example of the trend.

L’Oreal’s INOA Haircolor at a Salon in Miami

INOA Ammonia-Free Permanent Haircolor ODS2 Technology (Oil Delivery System) is a product that’s gaining a lot of awareness lately because of the advantages it has over traditional hair coloring products. Permanently dyeing hair goes hand-in-hand with damaging it. The process dries out hair and leaves it feeling coarse. Ammonia, which is used to open the hair fiber so that dye molecules can nestle in, is as delicate as a can opener. Some people say that smells horrible and can make delicate scalps feel as though they are burning.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that makers of lasting hair color have long sought an ammonia-free alternative that offers thorough gray coverage and a less unpleasant experience. Now, L’Oréal Professional is touting INOA (pronounced in-oh-uh), which stands for Innovation No Ammonia, as a game-changer.

Avant-Garde is now offering this hair coloring option at our salon in Miami located in the heart of Coral Gables on Miracle Mile.

INOA Ammonia-Free Hair Color System

INOA offers unprecedented comfort because there is no ammonia or odor, it’s optimized to offer greater scalp comfort and it has a creamier, smoother consistency.

INOA prides itself on supreme respect for your hair. It helps the natural protective outer layer of the hair. Your hair will remain as smooth as before coloration for a softer feel after treatment.

INOA offers 59 shades of color which brings the exact quantity of depth and tone for an unprecedented hair color result. It provides uniform, long-lasting color that’s exceptionally even from your scalp to the ends of your hair.

INOA has over 59 colors in their color chart

 

The NY Times wrote a great article http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/11/fashion/11Skin.html?pagewanted=all about this product because many people couldn’t believe that permanent hair color could be done without ammonia. Well now, this is a product that revolutionizes the way hair color can be done.

If you’re interested in learning more about INOA Ammonia-Free Permanent Hair Color with ODS2 Technology stop into our salon here in Miami and we’d be happy to answer any questions you might have. Feel free to call us at (305) 442-8136 and ask for Christine.
