Today one of the most important trends in hair color is natural looking healthy hair. We are getting away from really bold and / or chunky highlights and synthetic reds.
Look to Hollywood and you will see mostly natural tone on tone highlights, soft neutral reds, warm golden browns and soft beige or soft golden blondes. Of course a lot of what you see on the big screen is actually hairpieces, extensions or wigs.
Kerastase by L’Oreal
With that in mind, we have a tremendous amount of options open to us.
With the help of an incredible new lightening paste by L’Oreal Professional and home maintenance program of the appropriate Kerastase regimen, blondes can be taken lighter without feeling brittle and dry. Base breaks, base cleansing and base cracking are also options to lighten the hair on half to one whole shade. They can be used to brighten a sub-par shade of blond, with very little stress to the hair. New generation color removers give us the ability to remove the artificial hair color without damage to the hair. These services allow us to make significant changes without harm to the hair.
Men’s Hair Styles
Another new trend is in color for men. We are offering gray blending. It’s a simple service that is done at the shampoo basin to erase a few years in five minutes. Base breaks can be used to lighten and give the appearance of being lightened by the sun. We offer Balayage, which are hand painted highlights that give men’s hair natural texture and shine. What makes these service different is that they are more discreet and less dramatic that previous color options for men.
From Dr. Bonnie:
When first meeting, my patients tell me they want to look younger, and we talk about their concerns. For most its a sense of not looking as “fresh” as they used to. As we continue to talk, I find many are under incredible stress, and it’s aging them beyond their real years. They’re aware of the pressure, and maybe even of the toll it’s taking. Unfortunately, its not easy to figure out how to get off this energy draining treadmill that’s sabotaging their chance to look great.
I ‘ve discovered three common problems that almost all of these patients share, and even went so far as to prepare three separate videos, which have become my “prescriptions”. Each deals with a different problem and shows step-by-step how to eliminate them from your life.
I would love to share them with you, and there is no charge. The first is titled “The Dirty Little Secret of Multi-Tasking” and as the title may hint, Multi-Tasking is not helping us save time nor get things done faster.
