Take a look at this before picture:
Jessica’s guest came in with 4” of regrowth and old balayage highlights that had turned quite brassy. There were a lot of different color action going on!
Step 1: Jessica used Redken FlashLift with 40 volume and pHBonder to lighten in Zone 2.
(Zone 2 describes the mid shaft of the hair strand; starting from an inch away from the scalp to about two inches from the ends.)
She used a balayage technique to achieve a easy natural blend coming off the root area but saturated well to lighten the darkest part of the hair and remove any brassiness in the mid shaft.
Time: Approx. 45 minutes
Step 2: Then she thoroughly rinsed the hair making sure to remove all signs of the product. Followed by an application of Redken’s pHBonder Step 2 treatment and shampoo using Redken Extreme Shampoo and finally using Redken’s Chemistry Extreme Shot to strengthen the hair in preparation for color deposit.
Time: Approx. 10 minutes
Step 3: The Color! A base color application using Redken Color Fusion in 5T with 10 volume then Jessica stretched the root out about two-inches. Then she added highlights with Redken Hi-Fusion B with 10 volume. The remaining color was applied using equal part Color Fusion clear and 8T with 10 volume.
Step 4: Cut and Style.
Jessica gave her guest a long layered haircut and then applied Redken PillColorow Proof Primer & Guts 10 to her roots. To give her a smooth and voluminous blow-dry with lots of movement she applied  Satinwear 04 to her ends.
For heat protection and hold Jessica applied  Iron Shape 11 then curled the hair back and away from her face using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron. This creates a soft wave that perfectly accents her amazing color!
Finish with Fashion Work 12 for a medium hold and workability. Jessica sent her client home with four products: Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner to maintain her color, the brand new Extreme Mega Mask to keep her hair nice and strong and pHBonder Step 3 to use once a week before her shampoo to maintain her hair’s natural pH levels.
The result is a gorgeous icy silver blonde with hints of blue! An investment of time and resources but all worth it.

When setting style resolutions for this year, remember you don’t need to take drastic measures to freshen up your locks. When it’s time to change your look we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re ready to turn to your stylist and say “Do whatever you want!” or you’re just considering  small changes to your usual color or style.image1 At Salon Adrian we’re here to help you make those subtle but significant changes.

Here is a glimpse into what 2017 has in store.

Nude and Natural Nude is in and not just on your lips. Keeping your hair color as close to your natural color is in this year. Pairing a color that compliments your skin-tone and creates a natural and nude look that’s classic. Rich browns, velvety coppers and warm blondes are leading the 2017 color wheel, think Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

Pretty in Pastel Considered a color change? Give your hair a pop of color wIMG_8708ith soft pinks, purple’s and blue’s to give your look the edge-appeal you’ve been looking for.  Ask our Redken certified stylist how to keep this look vibrant and healthy all year long with Redken Color Extend.

Bold and Bronde This look was popular last year, but our style forecast sees a rise in this trend in 2017. Bronde is a mix between blonde and brunette and creates a sun-kissed look. It adds depth to hair and can be adjusted to compliment your skin tone by using more cool or warm tones. Many times bronde is applied using the newest technique, balayage, which starts below the root and allows for lower maintenance.
