Unicorn and Mermaid Hair

Bright hair is everywhere lately!  Mermaidians and Unicorn tribe is now a way of life.  Some people go big, transforming their hair, reminding this blogger of My Little Ponies, in a great way!  If you have been thinking of living in Technicolor, read below to know some basic facts about taking the plunge into a vivid, colorful hair dream.

This Blogger’s work.

How do you get your hair this Rainbow Bright?  The key to these colors’ vibrancy is a two-step process.  First, the hair must be pre-lightened (read bleach) to achieve a light enough canvas to see the hue.  Some colors require more lightness as a background than others.  Pastels are only achievable on the lightest of pale blonde hair.  Hot tip: if your stylist suggests Olaplex, Ph Bonder, or other strengthening treatments- do it.  Bright colors don’t last on compromised (read: fried) hair.  The stronger your hair, the better the results.  After the hair is lightened, the direct dye (the most vibrant hair color available) is deposited on dried strands.  This process is known to be lengthy, so younger kids and fidgety people, beware!  That being said, if only some parts of the hair is to be super colorful, I do recommend a gloss or some color on the other parts of the hair so the shine is consistent. For example, if you are just putting hot pink on the ends of your hair, a gloss on the root area to the pink really completes the look.

img_3132Lets talk about salon maintenance.  This looks really needs to be refreshed every 4-6 weeks depending on your shampoo schedule.  FYI- the lightening does not have to be done every time, just the color deposit if you don’t mind how your hair has grown.  This really depends on the look that you are going for.

 

Unfortunately, the maintenance for this look does not end with salon visits.  A color protecting shampoo and conditioner are a MUST for this adventurous look.  If you heat style your hair regularly, a heat-protectant is also needed.   Dry shampoo is a great way to stretch out time between shampoo, making color last even longer.  After washing your hair, be mindful of the towel or any other cloth that comes into contact with your wet hair.  White towels can become pink; pillowcases can grab purple, etc.

Some colors even glow under black light.

Be forewarned that while rocking this awesome look, people will stare at you.  People will ask you if that is your natural color ( har-de-har, dad jokes). But some say that is the best part!  This is not a look for wallflowers.  You can always do a little peek-a-boo piece to see if you are ready to commit.

One last thing to consider:  removing the direct dyes that are used for these looks is best left to a professional.  We have lots of tricks up our sleeves, but know, as awesome as we are, changing you back to “normal” can be a process.  Don’t let that scare you – talk to your stylist today about a jewel shade or candy hue today!

Shield Your Hair From The Sun

Shield Your Hair From The Sun

Sunshine Love

Sun Loving can lead to sun loathing.  Chances are, you have been burned before.

The pain, the peeling, and the itch! And that is just your skin. People seldom seem to remember that one’s hair is also in the line of fire.  The sun can damage your hair just like your skin.  Although our skin is a living organ and can repair itself, our hair, sadly, cannot.

sunmg

The UV rays from sun can cause the hair cuticle (the outer layer of the strand) to become brittle.  When this happens, one can notice tangles and frizz.  The sun also robs the hair of moisture.  UV rays cause color change in colored and non-colored hair.

Because our hair can not regenerate, unfortunately once the damage is done, a trim might be the only option. So Blocking the UV rays before you step into the light is a brilliant idea!

Pureology’s Colour Max can protect your hair!

Come in to one of our Disegno locations before you catch some rays and pick up your bottle of Pureology Colour Max.
