Disasters happen when you decide to color your own hair, have a friend do it, or employ a hairdresser that is not experienced.
A hair color correction in the hands of a skilled expert will yield amazing results. It can include minor adjustments to the overall tone, or a few highlights to the existing color to make it look more natural, or elimination of unwanted brassy or ashy tones.
There are a few situations when the problem is so severe, where the condition of the hair has been affected, that we need to work with the hair over a period of months before achieving ultimate results. We will always work with you to restore your hair back to health.
In many cases we use a popular technique of highlight/ lowlight combination as a hair color corrective tool to achieve natural looking hair. Highlight/ lowlight technique executed correctly is gentle on the hair. It is used effectively with brunettes, redheads, and blondes.
A very common hair color correction is taking hair that has been colored dark brown or black and taking it lighter or blond. There are various techniques to achieve this depending on the degree of build-up of color and the lightness of blond we want to achieve.
Example Hair Color Disasters
Over bleached blond: One solution would be to lowlight with a warm color, or colors, in order to give depth and shading. This procedure would result in the hair looking healthier and more natural.
Hair has become too dark or black from constant coloring: One solution would be to highlight the whole head with fine strands to break up the solidity of the black, process until the black is out, shampoo, and glaze the hair with a lighter shade of brown.
Very chunky highlights with white shaft and yellowy-orange roots: One solution would be to use a combination highlight/lowlight to balance the strands of hair. The highlights would only be applied on the root to remove the yellow-orange. The lowlight is applied from root to end to eliminate the yellow from the root while filling in the whiteness on the shaft. The combination of the two, combined with a conditioning glaze, leaves the hair looking natural and beautiful.
Unnatural-looking highlights come in many shades: A combination of highlight/lowlight technique with various colors, and, or strength of lighteners can be used to achieve the appropriate balance of lightness and darkness that look natural and beautiful.
Unnatural red: There are various techniques to correct artificial looking red. One solution is to add darker under tones, and it becomes a beautiful chestnut brunette. Another solution is to add a few lighter tones, and it becomes a beautiful strawberry blond. There are many other solutions; it depends on your preferences and taste.
You don’t like red at all! We can transform it into an ash blond by highlighting it heavily while at the same time coloring the hair we left out a darker ash blond, completely eliminating any red tones. The end result is a beautiful multi-shaded ash blond.
