Greetings to all you good rats out there.
Tonight. We talk color.
As long as I can recall, hair color as an art has fascinated me. I never knew the science that sent into it nor did I fully understand its complexities until hair school.
The irony is that I’ve worn fashion color in my hair on and off since some time around 1995.
Yes it is a complicated process to color hair. Chemistry, math, color theory and thermal reactionary knowledge all are used simultaneously in the time your hair is being colored.
It is a field so rich in skill and precision that smell stylists only work with color as their full time job…
So many people experience the initial ease of store bought box dye. And only for them to later deal with the long term hair health risks of store bought box dye.
Many of my color service appointments are complicated by box dye’s aggressive and chemically abrasive nature. Box dye chemicals work in similar fashion to the road priming liquid sprayed down on highways prior to snow storms. Metallic salts penetrate deep into your hair and deposit all sorts of long lasting chemicals.
I am open with my pricing and services on my menu.
Box dye can make a $65 color service turn into a $200 service because of all the steps needed to take to:
1. Remove the box color as best I can
2. Treat the hair to maintain strength and integrity
3. Correct as much of the remaining color as best as I can
4. Match the color shades to your desired level
5. Deposit and tone your final new color.
6. Condition the hair and rebuild protein bonds
The work to correct box color is mighty.
So next time the big companies on TV show you their newest campaign for whatever over the top color scheme they are offering. …remember that box color may do things to your hair that may never be fully reversed.
I myself love performing color services. I’d do it every day without ever getting bored. The artistry and precision of it all is simply envigorating to me.
The blend of science and art is truly unique.
From simple streaks to full coverage I love bringing the color to your hair.
