Colour is used to add vibrancy, richness and texture to a style. We often colour our hair to create a different look, to cover grey hair or brighten our existing colour.
There are many ways in which colour design can be applied. For this information we suggest that you book a consultation with your stylist.
When choosing which kind of colour is best suited for a client there are many things to consider, such as style of hairshape, lifestyle, skin tone, clothing colours and consistency of salon visits.
Permanent colours are used to permanently alter the pigments of the hair. This gives us a wide range and flexibility of colour choice. Also, permanent colours give the best results in grey coverage. In order to maintain a permanent colour, we suggest that professional colour-enhancing shampoos, conditioners and heat treatments are used to keep your hair in good health. Regular trims and colour touch-ups should be booked every 4 – 8 weeks depending on the method of application used and also on the rate of hair growth.
Demi-permanent colours have a very low volume of peroxide for depositing colour only. These colours will alter the natural pigment slightly. This is to allow a bit more colour deposit into the hair cuticle. Demi colours are used on clients who are in their early to middle stages of greying and are also recommended for use on clients who are not ready to go permanent, but want a bit more longevity than a semi-permanent. Colour will last 5-6weeks
Semi-permanent colour is ideal for clients who don’t want to commit to a permanent colour. These colours are deposit only (no lift) and will not alter the natural or underlying pigment of the hair. Semi- permanent colours will not lighten the hair as there is no ammonia or peroxide present. The benefits of a semi-permanent hair colour are to add tone, shine and richness to the hair, as well as blending some grey. This colour will last 4 – 5 weeks when the hair is cared for by using the proper salon products. Since the colour fades out gradually, there is no regrowth demarcation and therefore one can change their colour easily.
Colour is used to give hair body as well. It is an excellent way to accentuate a hairstyle and add interest to hair.
