Filtered photos are deceiving! Shannon, our new stylist founds these photos and wanted to show everyone the deception that is on the internet. The following is her blog post of what she found!
Ever just get bored with your hair color and start internet searching for a new fun shade?! Ever find a picture that you fell in love with?! Well that picture could be a big, ole, fat LIE! Take these pictures for example:
These are extreme examples. Photos can be photo-shopped to look very different than reality. There are lots of filters and color options for photos. Hair looks different because of the lighting! Inside and outside the lighting will change the color dramatically. Hair can be made to look so different. So different that the colors can be difficult or even impossible to achieve in reality.
I know these colors may not be for every one but these are a perfect examples on how pictures are filtered and altered in the internet world. This fun, aquatic blue and purple look can be achieved but you are going to have to pay some big bucks to get it.
Also, the reality is you may not get these styles in one visit to the salon. Why? Well, first it all depends on the level and condition of your hair. Its difficult to pre-lighten someone with “black or dark brown hair” that is color treated (get an in more depth explanation in our November 9, 2016 blog, Colorful Hair is Beautiful) After lightening the hair, it’s time for the fun colors and then styling. So overall you are going to be paying for two color processes (maybe even more depending on how light you need to go), a haircut if desired, and styling. Also, if you are going for these fun and bright colors they fade very fast and are hard to keep vibrant in the hair.
Try to keep your expectations realistic. A thorough consultation is a must for every color! We will try everything in our power to give you the perfect color!
