Hair colors can be difficult to describe to your stylist.
The best way to ensure you get the depth and tone you picture in your mind?
Bring in a photo to show your stylist during the consultation.
To tell your stylist...
"I want a goldy-brownish color,"
"I'd like to try a sort of auburn shade,"
... is risky.
Their perception of "goldy-brownish" may be entirely different from yours.
Same with trying to nail down a blonde shade.
Do you want ash blonde, golden blonde, beige blonde, champagne blonde, dark sandy blonde, or platinum blonde? Hmmmm?
Complicated? Yes, indeed. That's why we've added these pages, which provide photos of hair colors and descriptions of the shade. Broken down into the following categories...
Blonde Hair Style
Shades of Brunette
Red Hair Color
Hair Color Trends
These books provide more advanced information on the art and science of hair coloring. Learn color theory, corrective color, mixing formulas, application techniques, etc. Both are written by experienced, professional cosmetologists.
PREPARE YOUR HAIR
For best results (and to avoid common color mishaps), make sure your hair is ready for the color.
Minerals from water, chlorine from swimming pools, and build-up from styling products can all impede the haircolor formula's ability to do it's thing.
Use Joico K-Pak Chelating Shampoo before coloring to help eliminate these impurities.
