pHormulate Spring Hair Ccolor Forecast
By Leilani Hughes
pHormulate Creative Artistic Director
Like seasons change so does the pallet of hair color. With spring upon us - It is time to take off our winter clothing and lighten up from head to toe. During the fall and winter months, many of us made the decision to have our hair colored darker; some of us simply let our highlights grow out. Spring is the perfect time to make a salon appointment and ask our stylist for a whole new color story.
Trend is a point of view that is derived from many sources world wide. Just look around - It ranges from mild to wild! With that in mind, what is the best choice for Spring? We at pHormulate feel that trend is the key to creative color placement and client satisfaction. We strongly believe that the more you do to the hair will affect its integrity. Seek a salon and stylist who works with pHormulate Ammonia Free Hair Color . The stylist will be able to create amazing color statements which respect to the integrity of your hair. At the same time, pHormulate creates a safe environment for the world we live in.
Beautiful, healthy shiny hair from the inside out is phormulate's spring story to tell. One of our visions for Spring is called "Transcending Color Placement". We are staying within the realm of reality and selecting brilliant shades from our Highlighting System along with a gorgeous low lighting formula to achieve tone on tone special effects. The end result is an array of luxurious natural high lights and low lights which interact with light and produce an amazing reflective quality. Body movement puts the hair in motion and the color appears to dance!
Don't be fooled by booking a basic foil highlight which is usually achieved with bleach or a high lift tint containing ammonia. Look for a professional stylist who will custom formulate with an ammonia free product to enhance your existing hair color with beautiful highlights and low lights which are easy to maintain. Spring and summer is about fun in the sun, spending more free time with friends and family- No one wants to worry about retouching the "Roots" or new growth!
If this sounds like a concept that will work for you, here is a quick professional tip. When you book your appointment, be sure to tell your stylist that you are interested in a foiled highlight using pHormulate's High Lighting System. Your stylist will create a personalized formula that is one of a kind. Also suggest the Natural Series and the Natural Warm Series. The low light formula will be formulated to match your natural hair color or slightly darker.
Use the phrase "Tone on tone"
This will ensure natural beautiful results as opposed to walking out of the salon with zebra stripes that grow out entirely too quickly and require frequent salon visits to maintain. Make sure your stylist "Weaves" the hair that is placed in the foil packets. Some hairdressers "Slice" the hair. If your hairdresser slices the hair, make sure that the sliced sections are very thin. A lot of my personal clients and models love to see a bit more brightness around the face. If you fall into this category, ask the stylist to apply the lightest formula around the face in two "Back to back" weaved foil packets. All remaining hair will be foil weaved or finely sliced working with the pHormulate custom High Light and low light formulas. Make sure the hair dresser leaves out fine subsections of uncolored hair between the foil packets.
Be sure to ask about and pHormulate retail products to maintain your new spring look at home. Some of my favorites are 1r Revive and Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, 3a Anti Aging Leave-in Treatment and 4s Shape Up Design Gel. All of these products are can be used by the whole family and are awesome! pHormulate created a patented technology called ChromaGuard with you- the client in mind. It's about enhancing the natural condition of the hair to re-establish the healthy balance nature intended for hair to experience, and provide the hair industry with a new standard of hair preservation. By recreating complex, naturally derived, compounds along with significant essential nutrients that protect the hair, ChromaGuard Technology imitates the natural state of the hair resulting in healthier hair and more lasting color. Believe me, "You will not only see the difference - You will feel the difference"
Spring is all about renewal, just look around colors are changing, flowers are blooming. "Stylists are truly transforming Clients."
