Top 6 Summer Hair Color Trends

by Trash Talk with Anna Craig on Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Summer has just begun and we are already sizzling with hot hair styles this year. We are all so busy traveling, working, going here, there and everywhere, but we still need to look good. Here are some hair color trends to look out for during the hot summer days.


Sometimes called “he art of hair painting,” balayage is highlighting without foils and it gives you more of a sun-kissed, natural look. You can go longer between appointments and you do not get the streaky effect that comes with using foils. This technique is great for curly hair; it brings out the definition of each curl. If you are looking for a more dramatic and light look, this technique is not for you.


First of all, what is the ombre? This color style consists of dark roots and gradually lightened ends with the Balayage (hair painting) technique, giving a very sun-kissed look. This style can also be done very drastically for a more dramatic result. The ombre is great for any hair length or texture and it is very easy to maintain because you can go longer in between appointments. This look started with more of a caramel or blonde tip but now clients are requested different colored ends like reds and punk colors, which brings us to the next look.

Dip Dye

The dip dye is a variation of the ombre. It consists of the dark root and the lightened ends, but the ends are also colored in a “punk” color. Try to achieve the watercolor affect for a subtler look or, if you’re just experimenting, the chalking affect for a temporary approach. This has quickly become all the rage with celebrities.

Punk Colors

Everywhere you look now women are showing up with fun colors in their hair; it has definitely gone mainstream. Pinks, blues, purples, greens…you name it, we will wear it! Put a little or a lot in your hair, make it subtle or make it pop. The school districts do not usually allow the kids to wear it during the school year, so kids are coming into the salon like crazy to get it done for the summer.


Reds have definitely been big this year; our salon even ran out of copper one week because the demand was so high. Go bold and do a bright copper all over or keep it simple and add a few copper streaks to your highlights. Whatever you choose, the copper color is sure to brighten up your look and style. My favorite look is allover chocolate brown with a copper highlight. The look pops and is still natural with a hint of brightness.

Baywatch Blonde

There is a huge request right now for the Pamela Anderson Bleach Blonde look. This bold and bright look requires a little more maintenance; you should be in the salon about every four weeks to keep it perfect. The root needs to be bleached to perfection to make sure there is no brassiness left in the hair and you need to use a purple shampoo to maintain the perfect level of violet. This look is for that client who can never get their highlight heavy enough or just wants that perfect pale blonde.

Dip-Dying and Mixing Color

As a professional colorist, catering to curly clients, I IMPLORE them not to use box color. Here are a few things I tell them about why box color is usually the devil…

1. Heavier dye loads in some boxes intended to help cover resistant gray can create a very dark — and dull — result on previously colored hair. When applying color to your own hair, the chances that you will be able to neatly apply it on only the new growth are slim. A color designed to open the cuticle layer of your hair and deposit a heavy dose of color molecules is not what you want on hair that has already been processed in that manner. That is, unless you’re trying to channel you inner Wednesday Addams or Billy Bob era, pre-Brad Angelina.

2. Other hair problems are often caused by box color that clients don’t even attribute to their at home fix. Hair can be very dry, have a tinsel like feel that is caused by metallic salts or other harsh ingredients, or have intensified effects from sun or chlorine. Hair will tend to have a matte appearance with little shine or dimension.

We all know curly hair is already fighting an uphill battle to retain its natural moisture. Home hair color can offset the efforts of curlies devoted to maintaining their curls by using quality styling products. When box color creates too dark results/unpredicted/undesirable results the process required to lighten the hair is ALWAYS going to A) Damage the hair further, or B) require intense deep treatments that help restore the hair/prevent breakage, make it softer and more manageable and add shine. This is FOR SURE going to cost more than having it done in the salon. Whisper the following phrase aloud: “It doesn’t end up saving you money.”

When I’m creating a formula for one of my clients, I rarely use just one color. When mixing up anything from a vibrant, editoral copper to a natural looking “Kardashian” brunette, there is much thought and personalization involved in creating a color formula for each specific head — it’s nearly impossible to get that kind of result from a drugstore box.

I will always warn my clients about using box color, but with respect, acknowledging that neither time nor money grows on trees. This season’s runway hit real life trend — Ombre  — makes it easy for me to offer some clients a hair color option that can provide them a beautiful and professional result while allowing them to stretch time between visits. Roots — this season’s IT color. Well, not really, but kind of. Ombre is actually a graduation of color, from dark to light and is the current “I want THAT hair” request that stylists are getting from their clients. I first fell in love with this look when I saw it on Drew Barrymore, and she’s worn it as a rooty rocker style and as a soft dip-dyed look of sumptuous caramel brown melting to butterscotch blonde.

You can start with a base color that is close to your natural color, or choose to keep your natural color and just color your mid-lengths and ends (more like the Sarah Jessica Parker look).

Wondering if you can pull of this look with not only wavy hair, but shorter, too? Miley Cyrus has (ahem) the best of both worlds, with this easy yet fashion forward ombre bob.

Gray Hair Means Green

by Trash Talk with Anna Craig on Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Long gone are the days of roller sets but the champagne blondes and the caramel browns are here to stay. Years ago when I got out of beauty school, a friend told me to go work by the local university to get all the cool college students as my clients. But there is no money in 19 to 22 year olds. I wanted their mothers and their mother’s mothers, the clients with gray hair. My clients’ ages are a broad spectrum, but a huge percentage are Baby Boomers. They have a consistent income, they want to cover their gray and they need to look polished and professional constantly. Having a client who only comes in once or twice a year when they stumble upon money or when their parents help out does not build up your clientele. You want a client that comes in every 3 or 4 weeks to keep their look maintained.

When I have a client that is starting to get more gray, I know that they will be making an investment in their appearance. I suggest that they come in every 3 or 4 weeks for maintenance. The first appointment will be to get a Halo Highlight (5 to 6 foils), a root-touch up and a haircut. The next time I see them, 3 or 4 weeks later, I will just do a root-touch up. This keeps the client on a schedule; they never have to worry about their gray showing and your books will be full. I also suggest that they lighten their hair a bit to help make the line of demarcation a little more subtle. Once your client realizes that you have a plan for them and their looks, they will be yours forever. Most of my clients like this book for a year or two at a time — they want to know that they are on my books every three weeks so their gray is covered. They are the most reliable clients because they do not want to be caught with “horrible” gray roots. Always talk to them about vacations and other occasions they might have coming up to make sure their appointments are aligned — their hair should always look good!

Making sure that your clients are always pre-booked and are coming in more often will fill up your books and your wallet. If you let your clients leave and say, “Call me,” there is a chance that they will never come back. Always set out a plan for your clients, their hair and the future of their look. Gray hair might be bad for your clients, but it is always good for you, because you will definitely be seeing that client more often. My rule of thumb for my clients with more than 30% gray: always use 20vol, always leave the color on for 45 minutes and always use at least half Neutral in any formula for optimal gray coverage. This will guarantee full gray coverage for perfect results.

Make Money & Get Creative with TIGI copyright©olour

by Advertorial on Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Business basics for a salon are easy: market to the right customer and then keep that customer happy with good stylists and products. Done and done. But the financial basics behind a successful salon can be fleeting.

After all, when you finally get the clients you want, you want to make sure that you keep them happy. Often, that means expensive products and low turn-around which equals no profit. Running a business isn’t easy, especially one that is as client-focused as salons. Of course, if you stay up on the trends and are smart about what you buy, what you stock, what you use and who you hire, the pay off can be big for both the client and YOU (shocker!).

Cashing in on Color

To help on the color front, TIGI is introducing its new copyright©olour, a fully intermixable collection of shades individually crafted to use alone, mix and match or layer and blend to create your own personal coloring palette. Get this: because of the limitless color options due to the intermixability, there are fewer skus to stock and more colors to offer. Insert cash register sound here.

Of course, the product doesn’t just save you space and money, it allows you and your stylists to get creative and give your clients exactly what they want. You will no longer be caged by rules and shade options, and you can now create custom shades for clients and ensure 100 percent predictable results. Think it is too good to be true? Well, with a line that allows you to mix permanent tint with demi-permanent, demi-permanent with a 40 volume activator, high lift tint with permanent tint or permanent tint with an 8.5 volume activator, the sky is the limit on where your color creations can take you and your clients.

Because we know that numbers speak volumes next to words, we asked TIGI to pull some for us after we asked what the benefits for this would be for every colorist.

• Increased consistent coverage by 2x
• Enhanced color by 26 percent
• Improved wearability by 16 percent
• Improved combability by 5x
• Improved conditioning by 21 percent
• Percent alkalinity vs. competitors: 12 percent to 32 percent

So, back to the basics, TIGI copyright©olour is a pioneering innovation for infinite color creativity. Having the ability to intermix all TIGI copyright©olour crème emulsion products has resulted in a highly compact range being created, yet still with the capacity to create limitless color creations.

Overall, you lower your stock and increase your profit while allowing your stylists to express their creativity and provide your clients a coloring experience that no other salon can match. Now that’s a business basic.

TIGI’s Richy Kandasamy’s Hair Colorspiration

by Advertorial on Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

When you are born for something, it isn’t wise to fight it. And Richy Kandasamy, American Technical Director at TIGI Academy in New York, knows that better than anyone. Born in the exotic Seychelles islands, Kandasamy has a rich international background that provides a unique and experimental foundation for his distinctive and imaginative use of color and technique.

His use of color is inspired by his homeland, thus the tropics and a polyethnic culture play a huge part in his creations. Leaving the Seychelles to master color technique, Kandasamy landed in Florence, where his career flourished over eight years as he rose from the salon to the Technical Director of the first TIGI Academy in Italy.

Continuing on his success track, Kandasamy’s role evoloved with the company and led him up to the launch of TIGI Colour, where his contributions played an important role in the development and implementation of the product line throughout Europe.

In 2008, Kandasamy’s professional journey took him to the United Kingdom to focus and assist in the on-going development of the TIGI Colour line and the company’s educational programs. In his new role as TIGI® UK Technical Director, he continued to teach at the TIGI Academy in Italy and throughout Europe — implementing and presenting color technique and courses, as well as actively contributing in photo shoots, collection videos and TIGI Global Shows with Anthony Mascolo.

After being transferred to the TIGI Academy in New York, his new role as the American Technical Director allows him to continually push the boundaries of color technique and creativity.

For Kandasamy, his passion for art took him on a whirlwind ride around the world, leading him to the top of his industry.

“For me inspiration is everywhere,” Kandasamy says. “Whether it’s urban or exotic, street or haute couture — it’s how you interpret and process all those influences that turns it into art.”

How to Color Curls, Kinks and Waves

by Tracey on Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

As the texture revolution seriously takes hold, clients with curls are on the prowl for texture-savvy stylists who can transform their hair sans straightening.

Women seek cuts specifically designed for their curls, and to complement these cuts, they want color tailored to highlight their hair’s natural texture and beauty. Clients know their own unique texture and expect their stylists to feel comfortable and confident in working with it.

“In our multicultural world, clients can have many types of hair textures ranging from waves, curls and kinks,” say Matrix Artistic Directors Brian and Sandra Smith. “You must consider amount of curl, curl pattern, porosity, condition and whether hair has been chemically treated before highlighting textured hair,” say the Smiths.

Are you up to the task of coloring these varieties of texture? Because of the structure of curly hair, achieving good color results can be a challenge. But when used correctly, color can be one of the best tools to create a new look for clients with textured hair.

Highlighting How-To

Textured hair is naturally drier and more porous, which may cause color not to process into the anticipated shade.

“Semipermanent is the way to go for curly hair,” says Morgan Willhite, lead stylist and creative director at Ouidad Santa Monica salon. “If you are using permanent color on curly hair the color may come out darker than expected because porous hair absorbs more color.”

The Smiths agree and recommend Matrix’s Color Sync (a demipermanent gloss) to add color and a boost of shine to make curls look healthy.

Color applied to curly hair often looks different than color applied to straight hair, since curly hair diffuses light. Even newly applied color can look drab and dull.

So what’s the solution for clients who want to add highlights or lowlights to their hair?

“A great technique for wavy or curly hair is balayage,” say the Smiths. “The painted-on technique allows the stylist to apply the color/lightener where the natural refl ectivity would be most prominent on the curl and enhance the natural look of the hair.”

For highlighting, the Smiths use Matrix SoColor Permanent Crème Color or V-Light Powdered Lightener to achieve predictable results. The stylists at Ouidad also employ balayage for their curly clients.

In addition to balayage, The Smiths have identified another technique they and Matrix call “Texture Lights” for hair textures ranging from curly to kinky.

To try this technique, first evaluate the client’s hair visually. Then, select ¼-inch to ¾-inch sections from top layers based on texture and density.

“Then twist the section and paint on color or lightener to the outside of the section using a side-brushing technique on selected areas of the twisted hair,” say the Smiths.

“Holding onto the bottom twist, place a long foil underneath and wrap the section in foil. Continue with selected strands and process, lifting two to three levels. If using Matrix V-Light, Color Sync Demi Permanent Color can be applied after lightening process, for tone and shine.”

Foil with Caution

“Foil highlighting on curly hair has the same considerations needed as with wavy hair,” they say.

“Always make sure the strands you pick up are thick enough to be in proportion to the curl and density of the hair,” the Smiths advise. “Done right, the curl in the hair, and the highlights will work together to enhance the overall look.”

They caution against a weave that is too small, as highlights will get lost in the curl. “But if they’re too big, the effect could appear clownish and very dated.”

Special care should also be taken with processing. “If you allow the color to damage the hair—because you used too strong a developer, or overprocessed the lightening formula — the hair could potentially break in areas,” they say.

Tweaking Your Technique

Because textured hair lives in motion, a full color from roots to ends is not necessary to achieve the highlighted look. In fact, a subtle ombre highlighting, where the lighter color is applied more heavily to the midlengths and ends is better suited for textured tresses.

“Because it looks more natural, clients don’t need touch-ups as often,” says Willhite. “When you don’t touch it up, you don’t over process the ends.”

Avoiding over processing the hair, and thus avoiding drying it out even further, is key for curly hair health and will ensure the client can recreate the salon look without frizz caused from damage.

To become your curly client’s highlighting hero, become an expert in coloring her unique texture. Training classes and online videos are available— talk to your color manufacturer or visit for more information on classes.

“Many stylists don’t know how to baliage or how to do it well—it’s an art,” says Willhite. “You have to get training. There are classes, and videos will help. I’ve been doing it for years and it is definitely an art you have to master.”

Curly Cues

Not sure how to handle curls and kinks when it comes to color? Follow these six tips from Matrix Artistic Directors Brian and Sandra Smith for curl-coloring success.

1. Curly hair often appears less shiny and healthy because the cuticle is more raised and the twists and turns of the hair strands only reflect light from the arcs of the curls. Because of this, avoid using flat shades on curly hair, which will result dull color and minimize shine.

2. Know how to analyze and color texture. Examine the texture, porosity, condition and color possibilities before the color service.

3. Always rinse and shampoo hair with cool water. This helps close the cuticle and prevent color fading.

4. Use care when coloring and lightening curly hair due to potential damage to the weaker areas along the strands. It’s a good idea to apply deep conditioner prior to and after coloring curly hair.

5. Foil highlighting on wavy hair isn’t so different than with straight hair. The techniques are the same, but you must gauge the thickness of the weave for coloring or lightening to be in balance with the wave of the hair. If you use weaves that are too thin, the results get lost in the waves. However, when the weaves are too thick, the results can look streaky and outdated.

6. To keep hair in tip-top shape and prevent excessive fading, recommend a personal hair care regimen with specific shampoo and conditioners for color-treated hair.

Balayage Basics

Morgan Willhite, lead stylist and creative director at Ouidad Santa Monica, shares her balayage tips for success:

• Be sure the mixture is thick so it doesn’t drip down the hair.
• Don’t paint with the tip of the brush, paint with the side for natural fading.
• Use a color or lightener that has buffers and use a lower volume if possible.
• Determine the desired shade, and then go half a shade lighter, or even a whole shade, to get the desired result.
• Highlight the sections of curl as they naturally form. If you brush out the hair before you highlight, you will only separate the natural sections more.
• Have clients deep condition or use a protein treatment before they come in, or do it right before coloring at the salon to help with the porous nature of the curls—the color will hold better if you do.
• Advise clients to never use a protein treatment right after highlighting, as it can strip the color.
• Never reprocess the ends. In between treatments, use color glosses and glazes on curly hair. Make sure it is a no-color gloss — it coats and adds a lot of shine, plus it helps control frizz and give the hair a healthy overall look.

Client Hair Coloring Tips From Brig Van Osten

by CurlStylist on Thursday, July 14th, 2011

brig van osten

“Shear Genius” winner Brig Van Osten uses Pravana colors to achieve stunning results.

Hey there, my curly loving and cutting friends!

In case you missed out on Brig Van Osten’s live Facebook chat hosted by Pravana, we’ve provided you with some of the Q&A highlights.

Straight from the “Sheer Genius” to you, Brig provides quick client management and hair coloring tips.

Question: I have a client with Level 5 all over and chunky platinum highlights. She now wants to totally switch to JLo’s new Soft Sandy Blonde. What do you suggest?

Brig: I suggest you use Pure Light Power Lightener with 10 volume on her nat level 6. Leave your level 9panels out. Lift to level 9. Wash & dry.

Q: On personal style—do you ever worry that your own personal style will deter a client? I am in a pretty conservative area, and while I’m classic, I’m still kind of bold and worry about getting in to a salon and finding that a problem.

Brig: A great way to get around that is to create something cool using a clip in hairpiece that can be clipped out when you client goes to the day job. I never worry about what someone else will think of how I choose to look. I want to attract those who “get” me. I’m an artist and it reflects in my appearance. If I had to wear all black to a job, I wouldn’t work there.

Q: Have you ever listed with an agent? I’m near Nashville & I would love to get some on-shoot work and was thinking of contracting agents once licensed.

Brig: If you want to do freelance work, an agent is almost always necessary. Negotiating money for yourself is also challenging. Agents are fabulous.

Q: Brig, how do you get your clients to try a little “fun” color when they are timid about it?

Brig: I start each consultation by asking: “What do you like and dislike about your hair? If you are in the color room formulating and find yourself unclear, you didn’t talk enough with the client. Go back & ask more questions. Review pictures. I keep crazy records on each client. Consistency is key to a successful career as a stylist.

Q: I recently had a big problem with “sun-in.” Brig, how do you deal with this nightmare? Are there any recommended steps on getting this color correction under control?

Brig: Sun-In-EEEEEKKKK. Test strand & always darken, never lighten. Proceed with caution and under promise results. I remind clients that tell me, “My hair is strong and can handle it,” that I don’t want to see them on Judge Judy with me. Sun-In, Henna, crap from the all-natural market – BEWARE. Test strand. That has saved me many times. Offer a hair rehab program at your salon—great way to bring in clients with wrecked hair & make plans to nurse it back to health.

Q: Brig, I saw an awesome timeline of your career somewhere, but I can’t remember where it was.

Brig: I got my start at the cheapest school & hustled education after that. I also assisted and learned a ton of “what not to do” from a lazy stylist.

Summer Hair Coloring Tips

by Antonio Gonzales on Monday, March 28th, 2011

antonio gonzales

I was born in Trinidad in the height of a hurricane. I spent my childhood surrounded by the sights and sounds and smells of Carnival and the other Indian, African and Spanish festivals of the Islands. Loving the amazing costumes, I got my start dressing my sisters and doing their hair and makeup. An opportunity came up to work with Trinidad’s leading costume designers, makeup artists and hair stylists. After I left the Island, my career evolved with work in Munich, Los Angeles and now New York City. Here in New York, I am a stylist at the Orlo Salon in the Meat Packing district. Vogue magazine recently named me as one of the rising hairstylist stars in New York, I was awarded the best haircut of 2008 by, Gotham Magazine called me a Shear Genius and Allure Magazine featured me as one of the Best Cuts 2009.

Today I’m addressing protecting colored curly hair clients. Be it a blonde, redhead or brunette, color fading and breakage are what’s in store for them in the months to come as our clients enjoy the hot summer sun.

Before your clients leave the salon, here are some valuable tips for them to help them prevent problems and address these challenges.

Color Fading

From this day forward, as clients sit in your chair, it’s crucial to explain to them how to protect their “investment” (their hair color). Educate them on the fact that they need to purchase new products as the seasons change. For the summer, recommend new shampoos, conditioners and treatments that contain UV protection from the ocean, pool and sun.

Before they enter the pool or ocean, suggest they apply a thick layer of conditioner to prevent over-saturation of salt and chlorine. When they exit the water, recommend they have a spray bottle of water at hand to help dilute the salt or chlorine. They should also follow up by adding a light misting of a leave-in conditioner.

Tanning booths are big culprits in hair color fading. Remind clients to cover their hair when at tanning salons.


When working on my blondes, I have started doing cellophane glazes (colorshines) that contain no ammonia or peroxide. If it’s a blonde who can’t live without the effects of glosses (softening the root color), then follow your gloss with a glaze. In any case, a glaze will create a temporary barrier on the hair to prevent fading.

Because cellophanes come in clear, as well as different colors, you have the ability to not drift away from your desired color. For example, if I’m working on a blonde who does not want any warm tones, mix Clear and Pearl as your glaze. If she’s afraid of any cool tones then, mix Clear and Honey Golden Blond. The Clear is there to dilute any added color pigment and keeps you on track for your desired effect.


For your brunette clients with virgin hair, cellophanes are a great recommendation and I guarantee you they will love you for it! You can use Clear with a squirt of Red Brunette or Clear with a squirt of Honey Golden Blonde. The best part? It fades after 10 to 12 shampoos, which means they can enjoy a beach vacation with a peace of mind. Even for kids, the Clear will keep their beautiful curls intact and shiny.
