Hair Color Tips…Why Wait? – Go Silver!

Hair Color Tips – Why Wait?

Achieving the shade of hair color that you want, can best be achieved by working with a haircolorist.

Silver hair color is a perfect example of a hair color shade that you should not try to do at home, or just assume that every “hairdresser” can provide to you.

The art of providing and designing hair color is just that…….an art.    My personal and professional background is based on a foundation of education and simply being artistic.   I was a former Redken Hair Color Educator, and I taught hair color all over the country.

I have dabbled in painting.   I love painting with oil paints and creating abstract art.

The Color Wheel

The best tip I can share with you is to seek out a haircolorist.

A hair colorist is a person who has studied a variety of hair coloring and chemical science techniques in order to understand how hair color operates

How To Go Silver!!

If you are ready to make the plunge, then you will need to have up to a full day open.     The key professional hair color product that will get you halfway to your destination will be bleach. 

Today’s bleaches are not the bleaches of your mother’s or grandmother’s day.    The technology has come a long way, but I cannot stress enough how important it is to work with an experienced colorist.

My featured guest, Michele, (shown above) had to have 2 consecutive lightening treatments prior to customized silver tone being applied.

You will need to be prepared to invest in a professional regimen of aftercare products to keep your hair shiny and healthy looking.


How Long To go Silver?

Going silver can take a minimum of 4 hours to all day.

Everyone’s hair lightens up at a different speed.    The speed will be affected by what you have on your hair for previous hair color, or the thickness of your hair.


Things to consider:

Whether silver, unicorn hair or root shadow is the type of trend hair color that you want…..there will be maintenance.    The best way to determine if this type of technique and look is for you; I professionally recommend being thoroughly consulted with. 

Your maintenance touch ups will need to be pre-booked to ensure that you get the most convenient appointment, and maintain the most consistent results. 

Best Way To Communicate With Stylist!

If you search silver hair and use Google Images, then you can save some photos to your phone, and it is a good idea to bring them in with you.    Hair color shades or hues vary, and you will want to be sure that you and your hairstylist are on the same page!
