Who wants silver hair? Well, alot of people!
The picture above is Christina’s client Cecelia! She has very dark hair naturally. Christina was able to lighten her hair and tone it with silver.
We were wondering when the silver, gray hair trend started! Well, I looked it up and it’s in Wikipedia!
It’s called the Granny Hair Trend! Also known as Granny Hair. I personally have never heard this term, and it doesn’t seem like a flattering name to give the silver locks that we are doing!
25-30 years ago, there was no gray hair color that you could buy. No one EVER asked me for silver gray hair! At the sight of one gray hair, we were covering it up!
Now there are so many silver choices! Women, young and old, are now adding silver or gray streaks to their hair. Those who are blessed with naturally gray hair are embracing their sparkly highlights! There are amazing gray shampoos and conditioners that enhance the gray and make it bright and shiny!
The trend is attributed to fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier! In 2011 his Autumn/Winter fashion show featured models with gray beehives! In 2015 his fashion show in Paris showcased models all with gray, silver hair.
Ellie Goulding was seen in 2011 with platinum hair that was leaning toward gray. Kelly Osbourne was also wearing her hair gray in 2012.
Unfortunately, this is one of the hardest color services to do. The hair must to lightened to the palest white. If the hair is even a little bit yellow or gold, the silver hair color can look green or have an odd blue cast to it.
It’s so sad to explain to someone who has dark, dark brown hair that this may be something that they may never be able to have. It’s especially difficult if someone has dark hair color on the ends of their hair to begin with. The hair has to be lightened with lightener and sometimes that color just doesn’t want to lighten past a pale red or gold. Hair can be only lightened so much at one time before it loses all of it’s integrity and starts to break off. It’s a long process and you need to do lots of treatments that will keep your hair healthy as the process goes along.
Hair Extensions for Everyone! Who wouldn’t like a little more hair! If your hair is fine and thin and won’t grow long, you can do something about it. Extensions can give you fullness and length. This is Shelley and she’s wanted more hair her whole life! When Shelley saw our tape-in hair pieces from Cinderella it was like Christmas morning! She couldn’t wait to try some new hair. The extensions take about 5 days to special order, so we had to be a little patient. 🙂
These are 22 inch long human hair extensions. They come in several colors, lengths and textures. Shelley has multi-dimensional, wavy hair. We choose 2 colors in a wavy texture and it matched perfectly with her own hair.
The Tape-in hair pieces last about 3-4 months. They can be reused 2 to 3 times. They are easy to remove. A little solution is applied to the tape and it loosens the adhesive. This is the best method for preserving the health of your own hair. Many other extensions can pull out hair and even leave bare spots on your scalp. The hair is shampooed, dried and a new tape strip is applied.
Shelley wanted all over length and fullness. We used 4 packs of extensions. That’s 40 pieces. Two strips of hair extensions are sandwiched over a fine section of your own hair. The strip of tape is very flat so they are very comfortable. You can shampoo and condition like normal. There is a special loop brush that won’t pull on the extension. You should also refrain from using any oily products or serums.
Shelley would’ve loved to keep all of that length! We trimmed the extensions to a more believable, manageable length. Now Shelley has the hair she’s always wanted. She can curl or straighten her new hair just like she would her natural hair. Shelley was all smiles for days with her new hair! We’re so happy for her!
