Fashion colors have become INSANELY popular over the last year. I’m sure you’ve seen “unicorn” hair posts all over pinterest and instagram. So what exactly goes into achieving a look like that. Here are a few IMPORTANT things to remember when you ask your stylists for those crazy, cool colors.
It takes time & LOTS of it.
So what does that mean? Expect to be in salon for multiple appointments because it’s going to take time to get you light enough. Not only multiple appointments, but for each appointment being at least 4 hours long, sometimes even longer. Lightening hair is a time consuming process as it is, then add deep conditioning treatments to keep your hair happy, and blow dries after most steps, and cutting and blow drying again. (be sure to bring a snack)
It’s not cheap.
Keep in mind, multiple appointments can add up and be costly. Always be open with your stylists about what you’re willing to pay to make sure you both are on the same page when it comes to $$$.
You have to be BLONDE first to have unicorn hair in the end.
Your hair has to look like this if you want to look like this .
At the very least you need to be a darker blonde for your hair to even take to darker fashion colors. Looking for a pastel lilac, let’s start with violet first and safely get you to that lilac color you’re wanting.
REMEMBER fashion colors are NOT permanent.
Fashion colors are direct dyes offering TEMPORARY color. They fade faster, which is why using the products your stylists recommends is crucial. Although the products won’t completely stop fading, it’ll slow down the process a little but expect to be back in salon for a touch up between 4-6 weeks.
Still think fashion colors are for you? Talk with your stylist today about the HEALTHY way to get there to maintain the integrity of your hair because as always that is our main goal.
