First of all – why not? Customized color is created just for you! You’re special and worth it!  The answer is simple. Do you want healthy, beautiful vibrant hair? Professionals have practiced their skills to be the best at what they do.  Think about it, most Professionals color at least  4 – 5 clients in a day.

 All Over Color Versus Retouch! What’s the difference?

All over color and retouch are completely different!

Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to explain. Getting “all over color” differs from a “retouch” because it is all over your hair. It’s a root to ends application. A “retouch” is used when there is a line of demarcation. It goes from your roots to that line where the color was applied.

All over color initially costs more because you are changing your hair color. To maintain this new color, you will need to be on a schedule to return for a retouch. This is typically in 4 to 8 weeks and depends on what color you choose and your natural hair color.

A retouch is an application of color that is only intended to last for 3 or 4 weeks. You will need to return to the salon to maintain the color. When to return will depend on the color that has been chosen and the re-growth line of demarcation.

It does not necessarily benefit you to wait to come in for a retouch. If you return in 8 weeks you still will have a line of demarcation that should have been retouched 3 or 4 weeks prior. So that means that there is now more hair to cover (from the line of demarcation to your roots). That means that more color product has to be used, and it will take longer for your stylist to do this correctly – hence the cost will be higher than a normal retouch.

Benefits of using a professional hair colorist

We all have a choice about where to go for hair color.
Here are some reasons to use a Professional Hair Colorist:

  • First – the color looks professional! It’s not haphazard!
  • Professional hair colorists are trained in choosing the correct palettes.
  • The color tones that professionals have access to are ricer and more vibrant.
  • Confidence that your color has been customized just for you.
  • Less fading when used in conjunction with your take home care package! This helps with the care necessary to maintain your beautiful color.
  • The texture type of your hair influences how the color goes on your hair. Some textures are more resistant to color. This is all taken into consideration when a professional colors your hair.
  • Maintenance guesswork is eliminated. You will know when to have your next treatment so that your color can be properly maintained.
  • Professional hair stylists have a wide range of colors to choose from. This makes for true custom hair colors.
  • The color a professional creates for you will be much closer to what you had in mind than color from a box will be.
  • You get specific recommendations for products that will work with your hair color and texture type. It is not hit or miss – the recommendations are based in knowledge and experience.

How often should you get your hair colored?

A professional hair colorist takes into consideration many factors when creating the perfect color formula for your hair. This includes the texture of your hair, the amount of gray in your hair, and the length of your hair.

A consultation prior to any coloring or cuts, is vital to determining what your goals are for your hair.

Once both you and your colorist know what you are trying to achieve, then a plan can be formulated. The plan takes into account realistic times frames for maintenance, budget considerations, and of course, your customized hair style.

Hello my fabulous readers!

I wanted to write a post all about makeup tips and maybe a couple tricks! I hope you enjoy!

Tip #1: Knowing your skin type.

We all have different skin. Normal, oily, dry, normal-dry, normal-oily, combo skin etc. Step one will always be knowing your skin type. This determines what moisturizer you use, what primer you use and of course what foundation you apply! No one knows your skin better than yourself, so you tell me! What type of skin do you have? Once you’ve decided then you can go forward and purchase the products best for your skin! At Elements Salon and Wellness Spa we offer skin products for ALL skin types! So don’t forget to check that out!

Tip #2: Eyes=Prize.

The best part of makeup (in my professional opinion) is the EYES! Lets make your eyes pop! Your eyes should be the main focus of your face! How to make your eyes pop you may ask?! Wear the right colors of eye shadow! This is EASY! Depending on your eye color these shadows are really going to make your eyes POP!

Blue: BROWNS, purples, greens, BLACKS

Green: PURPLES, browns

Brown: Bronzy browns, COPPERS

Hazel: Creams, GOLDS, greens

Tip #3: Clear skin.

Having clear skin is so beneficial and important! Not just important for wearing makeup. Luckily makeup covers up most blemishes but we all want that baby bottom soft skin! Right?! How can you accomplish this? MONTHLY facials, (our outstanding Aestheticians can tell you what facial is best for your skin type! Just give us a call or stop by!) using the correct skin products DAILY,(our Aestheticians will also recommend the best skin products from our salon to you that will benefit your skin the most!) drinking lots of water, eating the right foods,(see my previous blog post for foods that benefit your skin to get a great list of foods!) etc.

Tip #4: Comfortable.

You may think what does being comfortable have to do with makeup?! EVERYTHING. Being comfortable with the amount you’re wearing. If you aren’t, you won’t feel like your self and we don’t want that! Be your beautiful self! Wear what you want and don’t wear what you’re not comfortable with. Put loads on or just brighten up your face a bit! Makeup is not required it’s a choice!

Tip #5: The right shades.

My final tip for you guys is simple. Wearing the right shades for you face! Cool, warm and neutral toned shades. This depends on your skin type! You DON’T have to follow this tip! Wear what YOU want! My skin tone and eye color pop the best with warm toned shades but sometimes I feel like wearing cool toned shades! But if you really want to make features pop this is a good one!

Warm skinned:

People with warm skin tones look best in you guessed it!! Warm colors. Duh! Lol! You can reach for oranges, orange-reds, peachy pinks, bronze, browns, and golds. Try out a peach or orange blush! Lips, it’s best to go with orange reds instead of berry-toned reds to really pop!

Cool skinned:

If your skin is light or dark, you will benefit with cool tones! Like wearing cool pinks, purples, reds, blues, greens, and grays. Instead of reaching for a peachy pink blush, grab a more vibrant pink. Cherry reds and fuchsia would look fabulous on your lips! Gray and deep purple eye shadows make cool eyes pop!

Neutral Skinned:

If you’re neutral skinned you’re the LUCKY ONES! You’re a chameleon! You can wear whatever colors and shades you want! Everything looks flattering on you!

REMEMBER: Wear what feels best to YOU makeup is fun! These are tips not rules!
