At 140 Salon & Blow Dry Bar, we love color – mermaid blue, cotton-candy pink, tangerine orange, sunset lavender, sangria red. But we’re not talking about abstract paintings or interior decorating – we’re talking about your hair! Dye in wild shades isn’t a new trend – we saw it in the 1980’s as a punk-rock look, and teenagers have been dying their hair with Kool-Aid for decades. But now we have access to rich, high quality dyes like L’ANZA Vibes Hair Color that use revolutionary dye technology to create mirror-reflective color results in vibrant hues. These new high-impact dyes are taking the kaleidoscope hair trend to a whole new level.
Our stylists can achieve almost any color. Still, transforming your hair’s palette is not quite as simple as bringing in a swatch of your favorite color and asking your stylist to apply it to your hair. For one thing, if your hair is dark brown or black, you may need to go through a couple of lightening processes to lift the darker tones before you can achieve the color you want. Also, you’ll need to consult with your stylist about the lifestyle look you’re going for. You may want a hip, edgy look in all-over-blue or a sleek and subtle lavender ombre that’s also modern and cool.
Ultimately, the sky’s the limit when it comes to your hair’s new hue – go for a tie-dyed effect with color-dipped ends, try highlights in contrasting colors, or alternate complimentary colors for a soft, blended look. We will work with you to achieve the hair of your technicolor dreams.
With this kind of color, it’s important to know how to care for your hair after you get home. First, it is crucial that you use color safe shampoo for any hair color, but especially for specialty hues (we recommend L’ANZA Healing Color Care shampoo and conditioner). Also, these bright hues are more prone to fading than traditional colors – that’s why you should also rinse your hair with cool water and do regular conditioning treatments to keep the color vibrant.
