Colorful hair is beautiful!
The steps to get here are many and challenging. To get the purest tones of colorful hair the base color needs to be lightened to a level 9 or 10. Natural hair color falls into a level from 1 to 10.
Depending on how dark your natural color is, this lightening can take 2 or 3-5 hours. Often you need several lightening steps to get to the lightest level.
The most challenging part is that most people have some sort of color on their hair already. Hair that has color on the ends can be extra difficult because it doesn’t always lighten to the needed level. A color remover is needed to get rid of all artificial color in the hair before the lightening process can start.
Once the level of 9 or 10 has been achieved the hair is shampooed, conditioned and dried before the bright colors are added.
The placement of the colors to get your colorful hair are limited only by your imagination! These colors are placed in the hair and processing is about 20-30 min.
This appointment can be several hours. Bring a lunch, and something to read. 🙂
The cost depends on what actually needs to be done. Sometime it’s not easy to estimate the price because we aren’t sure how long and agreeable you hair will be. It’s a good idea to have a through consultation about colorful hair so you know all the pros and cons and price.
Unfortunately these color are not always permanent. They lighten with every shampoo. Some last 10 shampoos and others last 20. It’s really best to shampoo as little as possible and use dry shampoo until you feel the need to do a thorough cleansing.
It’s always good to know what you’re getting into before starting the process. It’s a fun look but it’s a commitment to get there and to keep it going!
