So you want a red hair colour, but you wondering if it will work for you? There are many different kinds of red. Here are two at both ends of the spectrum.
 
Christina Hendricks hair colour rocks against her fair skin and big blue eyes. The colour is rich and full of gold and copper flecks.
 
And Drew Barrymore? She’s chosen to enhance her naturally brown hair with a violet-base. The result is an auburn shade.
 
Drew’s shade of red works particularly well if you already have dark hair and your skin tone has a yellow undertone.
 
Still not sure? Talk to us. We can guide you beautifully!

You just had your hair professionally coloured and you want to make it last. The colour looks great and you definitely want to preserve it.  So, how do you protect your hair colour and keep it looking fresh? Here’s how:

– Use lukewarm or cool water when shampooing your hair.
 
– Avoid excessive heat styling to prevent damaging coloured hair.

When You're Not Happy With Your Hair Colour

When You’re Not Happy With Your Hair Colour

When You’re Not Happy With Your Hair Colour By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
Okay, we’ve heard this many times before: “That last salon visit ruined my hair. The end result is horrible. It’s the worst dye job ever!’
 
What do you do if something like this happens to you? Do you just walk out of the salon and have someone else fix the problem for you?
 
First things first, do not just walk out of the salon. If you had your hair coloured and yet you’re not happy with the results, tell your colourist about your concerns. Ask the stylist what can be done to correct the problem. Colour can be masked or toned down. Your stylist can even restore your hair colour to (or very near to) your natural shade.  Colour correction is achievable but you must leave it to the experts.
 
And remember, a lot of bad colouring jobs could have been avoided with a proper consultation. So for your next salon visit, make sure you communicate your expectations with your colourist. You are entrusting your hair to an expert but to prevent mishaps, do not be afraid to tell him what you want and be open to his recommendations as well.

Insider Secrets On The Difference Between Box Colour And Salon Colour

Insider Secrets On The Difference Between Box Colour And Salon Colour

Insider Secrets On The Difference Between Box Colour And Salon Colour By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us  On 02 4861 1120
 
Maybe you’ve never given much thought to the difference between home colouring your hair and in-salon colouring, except for the price. Well, we thought we’d spill the beans on the huge difference between these two worlds.
 
Manufacturers of box colour are making a product for a very general audience. The only consideration is colour. It’s really impossible for manufacturers to take into account the person’s hair type, hair texture, length and thickness of hair.
 
A good hairstylist can properly assess the condition of your hair, and examine the texture and thickness—all essential components to creating beautiful colour. This is why your colour formula may change slightly from time to time to get the best results.
 
Box colour simply can’t do this. It wasn’t designed to. Professional hair colour was designed to penetrate your hair right to the layer that holds the natural colour pigment. Box colour simply coats colour on top of the hair shaft.
 
When colour is applied this way, it keeps light from passing through your hair causing it to look dull and lifeless. Eventually, it will look like straw, preventing any conditioning treatments from reaching the hair.
 
Professional colour works from the inside out. It helps to keep your hair healthy and allows for deep conditioning treatments. Those who professionally colour their hair can keep hair healthy and shiny for years to come!
 
Got questions? We’d love to hear them.

Why Does It Cost More To Get My Hair Coloured In The Salon?

Formulating colour that’s right for you is trickier than it seems. It takes time to learn how to do it properly, so what you’re paying for is expertise. Box colour, on the other hand, is much cheaper with a quicker result.
 
Unfortunately, with box colour, you’re buying just convenience. This type of colour contains metallic salts that completely destroy your hair. It also prevents you from receiving any professional chemical services at any salon, including perms or relaxers.
 
Why? Because your hair will start to steam and burn! That’s when we develop a headache trying to figure out how to get rid of the metallic salts without risking damaging your hair further with really harsh chemicals.
 
Do we sound anti-box colour? It’s true. We are. But we don’t want to hurt your feelings if you choose to go this route. We just want you to understand the risks. There really is a reason that most cosmetology schools require at least 1,000 hours to graduate.

3 Easy Ways To Spice Up Hair Colour Without The Fuss

Want to make a change to your hair, but just a little nervous about it? Not to worry. We know how to take baby steps!
 
When you’re ready for that change, follow these three steps to ease you into that new look.
 
Enrich your natural base colour. Your stylist can find shades in your hair color family and bring out the warm, rich tones by adding more of that colour.
 
For example, with dark brown hair, chances are you have some auburn/red in the mix. Add lowlights of those tones to add more richness to your colour.
 
Look to the stars for shades you covet. Watch how they switch out their shades for the season, and ask yourself, what can I realistically copy? Stay within one or two shades of your current natural hue.
 
Customise your colour. Bring a photo to your consultation. Talk about the colors in your wardrobe. Do you have more brown, grays or blacks? Pastel or bold? This will help with color placement for a beautiful look that’s all yours.
 
We’re ready when you are!

“Why Doesn’t My Hair Colour Look Right?”

“Why Doesn’t My Hair Colour Look Right?”

“Why Doesn’t My Hair Colour Look Right?” By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
Maybe you saw it on your best friend, or in the latest beauty magazine, or it could have been a reality show. But wherever it was, you knew it was the perfect colour for you.
 
Except it didn’t turn out that way. Why?
 
The short answer: skin tone. And it’s what can make or break your colour.
 
Cool undertones are considered to be: pale with pink undertones or medium with pink and slight gold undertones, like olive, bronze, brown or dark brown skin shades.
 
If your skin is pale and has peach or gold undertones, then you’re considered warm.
 
For cool undertones: Choose tonal hair shades of blue and velvet. These reflect beautifully against your skin! You won’t look washed out.
 
For warm undertones: Choose rich browns, warm auburn or red with enhanced golden highlights. You won’t look drained of colour!
 
Staying true to what nature gave you will make you stand out every time. And just to prove it, take a look at Anne Hathaway’s hair colour.
 
Her cool undertones were beautifully highlighted simply because she remained true to her natural skin tone.
 
There’s no reason you can’t have the same results!
