This picture is of my 82 year old grandmother. Wow! We can have beautiful hair color at ANY age!
In the past, she has worn a light blonde that had lots of charisma on it’s own, but the day came when my grandmother felt the warmth wasn’t as natural and “age appropriate”. Considering the fact that her natural color is snow white. Zero pigment in the hair, translation: a BLANK CANVAS! My colorist dreams came true when my grandmother said she’d like a “champagne color, or crisp blonde”.
We brought her in to the salon and used a level 10 Neutral with 2 grams of Green Concentrate and 25 volume developer. I went through with liquid Clear after complete color process to add extra protein (the liquid Clear has all five: keratin, silk, soy, rice, AND wheat proteins!), and added even MORE brilliance to the color formulation.
She was “tickled” with the results, and after a minute of adjusting to her new, more natural blonde, my grandmother said, “let’s call this color PEARL”.
Reminding us, hair color can be natural and brilliant to be fun. Having your clients reflect on small changes they’d like to make, allows your creativity to shine each visit. Plus, having your client name their hair color (they LOVE this!) brings them into the entire creative experience that happens behind the chair. Chromastics color hands back the ability of creativity to our industry of colorists.
Light and love, Caitlin
