Word up this post is all about that color. You know the kinda color that makes you do double take, be it a bit of a pop or a whole lotta BANG! Read on to see some of our tips and tricks to our favorite color of the month…

Custom pink

Donna Rae custom mixed pinks and violets to come up with this amazing tone!

Creative color is made to fade. We always like to go on the more vibrant side to allow for several shampoos. The best way to maintain color is to wash less, embrace dry shampoo and use color safe products or conditioning cleansers. The more you lather and suds the color disappears down the drain. Conditioning cleansers or No Poo can save your color but it’s not for everyone. Sometimes going brighter and allowing the color to fade to a more lived in look, is better for our clients. Remember color can be a journey:)

Electric green bob

One of our favorite ways of preserving color is by using Viral color depositing shampoo and conditioners by Celeb Luxury. One of my top tricks is washing hair in cool water not only does it give great shine to your hair but invigorates the skin.  Washing in hot water is a color killer, it opens the cuticle and causes the pigments to fall out and down the drain. Cool water seals the cuticle preserving color, keep in mind cool water rinse and repeat!

All of these images are on double process hair. Hair is lightened to a yellow and then toned to customizable shades from butter blondes, rainbow colors or platinum. Vibrant creative colors are the most forgiving and can blend away even orange tones. To keep pastels and blondes you want to come in every 6-8 weeks for root touchups.
