Color Correction & Hair Color Problems

Foils - Highlights - Lowlights – Varied Tone

Foils – (or hi-lites / highlights) are an essential and artistic tool for the highly skilled color technician. Each individual foil is placed, with varying degree of width and volume, and in an wide range of tones and shades, the result is as unique as you.

Sparkle foils – provides up to 8 foils and are perfect as a taster of hair color or as a accent in one area of your hair (i.e. a fringe or parting). They can be woven or sliced, dramatic or subtle – depending on what effect you require. A few well-placed foils can also brighten up your existing color.

Partial foils – refers to anything less than a full head of foils. A very open-ended term that generally means the crown area, part-line and front hairline. They are very versatile, and the foils can be woven, sliced or sections of hair colored randomly whatever your wardrobe desires.

Full foils – create an all-over effect of highlighted hair that can be woven or sliced, depending on the effect you require. It can be as natural or as bold as you would like it. You can add in as many colors as you would like to create a feeling of naturalness, or it can be as big as your imagination.

Framing – placement of foils around the face to add brightness or for for dramatic effects to emphasis a haircut.

Lowlights -are like highlights with a major exception…instead of removing color, hair color is used to add tone or depth to washed out ends or simply adding darker strands. These lowlights add depth and variation.

Color blocking – can be defined a mixing two to three (if not more) bold and often contradictory colors together on one ensemble to make for an exciting statement piece.

Full Color Change & Regrowth/Roots

A complete change of color can produce dramatic and stunning results, or it may be used just to cover grey hair, or to enliven you own natural shade with better hair color depth and shine.

Hair color change – is a permanent hair color that is applied by our technician on small sections of hair. Starting at the root they will ensure even and extensive coverage to achieve a perfect result. Our extensive hair color chart offers a massive choice of shades (depth of color) and tones (balance of tint colors).

Regrowth (or roots) – top up your full-head color previously applied. Not only does it cover natural-color new growth, but it also adds renewed color depth and shine so that your hair looks in great condition.

Fashion Techniques

Hair coloring has been revolutionized over the past decade by new techniques and technology. These are just some of the many methods we use to create beautiful hair color transformations.

Glossing – is is a superb way to give your hair masses of shine and add intensity and depth to your color. This semi-permanent hair color contains bees wax and conditioners that are gentle on your hair and can be used to camouflage grey hair or add depth, sheen and vibrancy to your hair color, whether natural or already colored Glossing will not lighten hair – it adds tone.

Paintbox – is for the funky guy or girl that likes to be noticed. Paint box comes in all the colors of the rainbow and when different shades are fused together the result can be striking.

This is not a color for the faint-hearted as it requires lots of TLC. It is a semi-permanent hair color that must be applied to pre-lightened hair.

Color Correction & Hair Color Problems

This is where the highly skilled Master Color Technician is worth his / her weight in gold.

Changing your hair color – is seldom as simple as applying a new shade over the top. If your hair has been colored before you could have different shades at the ends because of sun light or frequent washing, there is likely to be root regrowth in your natural shade, and there could be a build-up of color on the mid-lengths that is too dark. A change of color under these circumstances means dealing with every part of the hair individually, using different shades and tones on each section.

Fixing imbalance and shade problems – can be as simple as dealing with hi-lites that are too yellow or removing dark bands where color has been over-applied many times. This kind of problem is dealt with every day in our Salon.

Dealing with Hair Color problems – is a speciality for our Hair Color Experts. Often these complex problems will require removing color from some sections while adding to others. The technician will analyze every part of your hair to calculate the accurate mix of tones and shades to restore an overall color.

If you have a hair color disaster – DO NOT worry, we have the experience, skills and techniques to help you.

Color corrections require in person consultations.

Bored with your hair color but not sure if it’s really time for a change? Here are five signs you need a hair color makeover.

A simple hair color gloss treatment can restore shine brilliantly, not to mention leave hair soft and silky feeling.

Your stylist can add highlights or lowlights to restore dimension.

“One reason this happens is when hair color and skin-tone become too close–this can cause hair color to seem faded and skin to appear washed-out.”

Instead of asking for the same shade over and over, get inspired to try a new hair color!

Try the ombre hair color trend that’s all the rage on the red carpet. Color gradually transitions from darker at the roots to lighter at the ends, for a look that’s flattering and low maintenance.

While a constant ponytail is a sign you need a different haircut, it’s also a sign you could use a new hair color. A new hue will inspire you to wear your hair down and show off your great new hair color!
