Hair coloring has come a long way in the last one hundred years. Where there used to be a few options, bleach blonde or henna red, there are now hundreds of different colors, shades, and hues. And these can all be mixed into highlights, lowlights, or all-over color. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed about all your color options for your dye job, you should definitely look in to using a color specialist.
A hair color specialist will work with you to pick out the best hair colors for you, ones that will accentuate your best features, complement your skin tone and haircut, as well as make you feel confident with your hair color. These specialists have trained and know all about color, including the tones and hues that add dimension to hair color. And, if you’re going in for a cut and color, they can help you match your new hairstyle with a color that will fit perfectly.
Most of the duties of a color specialist are well-known by those who visit salons regularly. However, there’s a completely different side to these specialists that many overlook. Have you ever noticed your colorist running his or her hands through your hair? Bouncing it up and down and feeling the strands? This is how they learn about the texture of your hair. They take these seemingly small things into consideration when they start to make suggestions to you. They aren’t just concerned about your looks, but also the health of your hair. This is why they’ll suggest specific types and brands of hair products to you.
There’s a lot a color specialist does behind the scenes, too. Unlike store bought colors, most salons will mix their own dye, which means a specialist needs to know exactly what to mix to get the perfect shade for his or her clients. If you have a very specific color that you want, sometimes all it takes is a picture of the color for a specialist to be able to mix a matching color for you.
One of the most common reasons to visit a color specialist is to correct a color job that has gone array. If you’ve ever dyed your hair at home and it comes out looking different than what was on the box, then you have a god idea about what color correction is about. A color specialist will look at the current color and determine what needs to be done to the hair for it to take on the correct color. Sometimes this will include using ammonia to lighten or stripe the hair color. In the end, they’ll send you off with the color you wanted in the first place.
A color specialist is an integral part of all salons. They can help you decide on colors that will flatter you the most. They’ll also walk you through what you need to do to keep your hair healthy and your new color staying in place. And, if you’ve had a bad coloring experience, they’ll help you fix the issue, so you get your wanted hair color.
