How do you manage grown out roots when you don’t have time to have your hair colored?

If you have ever reached the point that it is hard to maintain your grown out roots (regrowth) every four weeks then maybe you should consider some different types of highlighting such as the french Balayage technique that originated in France. This technique is done artistically and beautifully with a pallete of color to make the regrowth at the scalp look like your hair was kissed by the sun. While the ends are lighter because of color over color, we can manage that by enhancing the bottom with perhaps some ombre lowlights to minimize the brightness and tone then adding some lighteness to the top with the hair painting that only we at Indulge, A Color salon 180 from Ordinary can do.

We have training programs that we teach a consistent french hair painting technique that takes some skill and a keen eye for the artistry to know where to place the brush and the angle in which the hair will lay. The results are spectacular and the color lasts longer than if you would do the retouch every four weeks which certainly grows out with a line. The Balayage technique does not grow out in a line but a beautiful natural approach like your natural hair grows.

Tips for blonde hair drying to prevent frizziness

You know and I know that when you have blonde hair and it’s frizzy it doesn’t look as good as the stylist at the salon when she does it. So here are some fun tips to help prevent the frizz before you dry your hair:

1. Prestyling efforts are important. Try to towel blot and do not RUB the hair dry. EEEK! That just makes your hair worse or the one I love the most is the turban style of drying. That is also not a favorable effort because the ends where the water is held will have the towel absorb and then they will get dry and frizzy with the scalp still be damp or still wet. So instead try this tip by towel blotting which is squeezing the excess water out of the hair and then take the towel and squeeze at the scalp to get the excess out of there. Then take your product to prevent frizzy such as the Shine Drops from Wella Sebastian put a few drops in your hand add a little water to dilute so it doesn’t feel greasy and apply to the ends first than work it through the hair and scalp area.

2. while drying. rather than let your hair fly all over the place like a tornedo, direct the blow dryer with concenter (that’s on the end of the blowdryer that gives direction) towards the scalp first than take it to the ends. this will prevent your hair from getting frizzed out and knotty.

3. gym time. before sweeping the hair into a tight ponytail, mist your bursh with a leave in conditioner or hair spray. This will keep your hair in place while conditioning and holding it together. To prevent frizz, choose sprays that don’t contain water.

I hope these tips help. If you would like to watch my video from flat to fluffy on you tube, this will teach you how to create some curls with naturally wavy hair. It’s funny and informative.

Hey, are you a Blonde on the run? I started this entire collection of blondes many years ago because I always heard that they were running around doing this and that. So I made  a collection of blondes that are scrumptious and gorgeous.

Basically, I take the color at the scalp and I prelighten the hair so that it looks a little lighter for the spring and summer. Than I take the seasonal highlights technique that is most popular such as the french balyage and french balayage (the are both referenced) as a french way of natural hair painting. Isn’t that cool?

Then we tone the hair to the glorious shade of beach bunny blonde, butterscotch blonde, cowgirl blonde in case you didn’t know is a strawberry blonde. We also have the ash blondes and the platinum diva blondes. So when you are ready for some powerful blonde highlights just call us at ;717.718.4465 or 717.846.4424 or check out the beautiful colors on our website at www.indulgesalon.com/blonde-hair-coloring

Can a good shampoo lighten your hilites?

June 17, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, french haircutting, hilites, Well Water

I just ran across a situation today at the salon. I was performing a training with some

newer staff members with our shampoo process. As I was educating a client and staff

on how much shampoo to use, where to apply the shampoo first besides the habitual

top of the head glob, I learned that most people do not apply shampoo properly, nor

do they know where to put it first. So let’s do some education for all of you to help you

increase the volume of your hair, cleaner hair and scalp and overall better condition

of the hair by proper system of shampooing.

1. wet the hair first. If you have well water let the water run 5 minutes before putting

your hair under the water. This will allow the metals and any chemicals in the water

run out first then you will not have to worry about the well water build up.

2. pour the shampoo into your hand about a quarter size. rub the shampoo between your hands to break up the product then apply to

3. your mid lengths and ends first then your scalp. start rubbing in circles and moving the shampoo around towards your hairline. The hairline captures the salt, sweat and anything yucky that might be left into the hair for days. Hair will smell if not washed properly or often enough. Feel free to shampoo your hair every day.

4. rinse thoroughly. Add a quarter of conditioner to the mid lengths and ends. You do not need conditioner on the scalp. This is the healthiest area of your hair. Let on for 3 minutes while you wash your body.

5. squeeze out the water. When you are ready to hop out of the shower, towel blot until you don’t have much water left in the hair. Apply your leave in treatment or product asap so the he product will dry with the product in the hair. If to much water is left in the hair, it will weight dowb the hair.

Note: if you do not wash your hair frequently or two washes per shampoo session, the hair will tend to look dull and not as vibrant as when you had it colored. the sweat will turn the hair color to a yellow dull look. Smoke, sweat can build up on the hair by coating it. The sweat glands produce the natural moisturizer that will build up.

Keep shampooing! This will keep your hair brighter and healthier

Ombre blonde hilites can blend or be bold

May 12, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, french haircutting, hilites

Have you tried the new Ombre hair color technique? this technique will give you interesting dimensional hilites that will enhance your natural or “non natural” hair color. This technqiue can be done bodly with peek a boo lights shining through the darker hair like a veil or you can choose to have a more natural approach that looks like the sun kissed the hair. The concept is the hilites are more around the middle to the ends of the hair. This is not your normal hilite that is positioned on the top of the head. go ahead and try something new today.

We had a client that had a more light golden blonde and we painted on the ombre hair color to really bring more light around the face. We used a lighter pale blonde to give her hair some zest. I just love how it looked when she ran her hands through her hair. So beautiful how the light shined on her hair.

Think about it. It’s different, It’s beautiful.

Solid blondes with a hint of dimension brings out the shine

April 25, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, hilites, styling

think about it. You have been coloring your hair for years but it lacks the luster and shine that you crave like the magazines. Ask for some dimensional hilites or lowlights if you are to light. This will break up the base color and make your other color pop and gives interest.  Try some alternate tones besides just the hilites such as strawberry blonde that makes your skin look more apricot. Or if you are a warmer brunette ask for toffee or break the base of your natural color that looks more sun kissed.

If you are a high maintenance blonde you know that it costs you more money every month and then you add hilites every other month, try keeping the hair toned with a color balance that will give you more of a softer creamier tone that is lower maintainance than hilites. Sure keep the hilites going but maybe do some packets vs all over.

Balyage hilites are french hair painting

April 15, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, french haircutting, hilites

Balyage is another word for hilites in French. I learned how to do the french hair

painting years ago when we flew in this French hair stylist from France. He had

trained alongside Fredrick Fekkai whom is from New  York City. Anyway, this

guy was so talented and detailed in his training that I learned so much that weekend.

He was worth every penny to learn the art of how to paint the hair. It’s not like

just blobbing the color from the scalp to the ends, it’s about a feeling that while

painting it, you are looking at where the light will shine onto the hair and how the

color chosen will illuminate the actual hair strand when the light hits it or the

appearance of the light hitting the hair. This is one of my favorite ways to color

hair. this technique looks incredible on blonde hair. Light blonde, dark blonde,

any blonde looks fabulous in this painted way. We also have done the peek-a-boo

technique that that allows the color to peek through when you lean over or the

hair blows in the breeze like at the beach. This is the best technique of hiliting

that will grow out naturally if you want that beach look. It takes a skilled stylist

to pull this off. Try it some time.

Sexy Blonde hair from short to long this spring

April 12, 2011 By: manager Category: Blonde Hair Colors, blonde hilites, french haircutting, layered haircut

French pixies are adorably popular this spring. Are you ready?

Scarlett Johansson is a major trendsetter with her layered bob with flicked up ends and slight wave that flows with the breeze. As a stylist, it looks like you have laid on your her and then you fluff it up when you get up from a nap. Other bobs are totally appear straight one length on the sides (but really they are layered from the interior) and back with the fitted straight bang. very sleek. Or try on a Keira Knightley luscious bob that flows longer towards the front of the face no bangs.

The bob will have a more casual feel using soft products for movement. Strong lines with an inside layers that are tighter at the bottom.

Ombre hair color is one of the coolest techniques that I’ve done. This is more of a phased in color that is lighter on the ends that move toward the top of the head. Gorgeous! Gives a sunlightened feel.
