In today’s blog we are sharing with you a few of our favorite products that create and maintain captivating hair colors!
This season, vivid hair is all the rage. Straight from the Met Gala carpet, celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Russell Westbrook are having us asking why not be bold? Whether you’re creating deep burgundy tresses, a navy and white fade, or even a pink and platinum look, here are some of our favorite products to help you give your client a stunningly bright look.
It All Starts with Lightening.
Due to the nature of vibrant hair colors and the fact that not all clients seeking out this show-stopping style will have light hair, pre-lightening is essential.
Enter Milbon: Japan’s number one hair care line whose unique lightening products will provide you with the perfect base to get crazy with color.
Whether you’re looking to try their SOPHISTONE Elite Clay or Elite Powder lightener (both of which offer a controlled lift with built-in protection), Milbon will provide you with optimal hair care for vibrant styling and any of your other coloring needs.
Bring On The Color
Now, for the fun part: the color. PRAVANA is known for its innovative coloring products. Although they have many products you’ll be dying to try, including demi-permanent shades, creamy permanent colors, color enhancers, and even coloring glosses, the star of the show in this scenario is their ChromaSilk VIVIDS line.
With 32 gorgeous intermixable shades, including jewel tones, neons, and pastels, the combinations are pretty much endless. So, whether your client comes in with a color scheme in mind or asks you to dream up the perfect look for them, you will have a great time giving vivid looks with this award-winning formula.
We also recommend Keune Color Chameleon Intense Direct Dye which includes 9 intense direct dyes and two shade shifters to pastelize or deepen colors while offering vibrant, fashion-forward color results.
Let That Color Shine
Of course, when it comes to vivid looks, lightening and the coloring process itself are not the only things you need to consider. Maintaining the brightness of the color and the health of your client’s hair is equally, if not more important.
It is the nature of bright shades to fade a little bit quicker than your run-of-the-mill colors. In terms of hair health, a nourishing, protective product needs to be used in conjunction with the dye, especially if the hair has to be lightened to achieve the client’s color of choice. Thankfully, K18 is here to help.
With a mission to combine biotech and haircare to restore hair’s structure, strength, and elasticity, K18 Biomimetic Hairscience products are your best friend when it comes to vibrant-hair clients. The Professional Molecular Repair Hair Mist can be used as a pre-treatment to reverse previous damage and strengthen hair before the coloring process begins. Then, follow up the service with K18’s Professional Molecular Repair Mask. Its silicone-free formula soothes hair’s cuticles and restores hair to a youthful state in just four minutes, while the Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask can be used after the coloring process and sent home with your client for regular use.
Another fabulous option for maintaining the health of even treated hair is Brazilian’s Rewind Anti-Aging Reparative Service which instantly corrects years of structural and external damage, restores chemically treated and mechanically compromised hair to a noticeably healthier state.
Achieving a vibrant hair look is no easy feat, and a lot more goes into it than your client may think, but with these brands and their superstar products, you can be sure that you and your client will have the best coloring experience possible. Plus, you have to admit, the final product is totally worth it.
