Golden Blonde Ombre with Balayage - Charlotte, NC

Here are some pictures of the always beautiful Celeste. You may remember her from a few posts back; we took her from ashy/neutral blonde highlights to a golden blonde ombre. Follow this link for the original post.

Anyway, lucky Celeste has spent some time in California and in the sun and her color was starting to fade a out a little. Not to mention that when you color over old blonde highlights like we had previously done, it takes a few times to really get the color to "stick." We added a little more warmth to the base color and brightened up the ends a bit. Here are some before and after pictures of when she came in the other day.

Red Hair Color - Charlotte, NC

Here are some more pictures of one of my favorite red heads - she loves the really vibrant colors! We had been going for more of a copper hue, but this last time we switched it up and opted for intense red with some violet pieces.

Corrective Color with Balayage Highlights - Charlotte, NC

So I've been bad about blogging lately, but I have some pictures from a while back that I wanted to share. These pictures are of a corrective color I did on one of my regular clients. Before, I get into the process that we went through, I want to issue a disclaimer: corrective color is not one of my favorite things to do and most people are not a candidate for a corrective process that is this drastic. Corrective color can be very damaging to your hair and in almost all cases there will be something unexpected that comes up. If you are looking to get corrective color, expect to go through a transitional phase. If you are reversing years of color you could spend the whole day in the salon or go through several appointments to reach your desired goal.

With this client her desired goal was to go from a very dark brown to a natural looking blonde with bright blonde highlights. Keep in mind that we have been putting dark, permanent color on her hair for almost two years now. We had to go through a stripping process to remove the color from her hair and then re-color and highlight. From start to finish it took about 8 hours over 2 days. I'm sure she was tired of sitting in my chair by the time we were done, but now she has great balayage highlights. Please email me to schedule a consultation at my salon in Denver CO.
