Hair Colour Application Techniques
There are many hair colouring techniques available at our hair salon in South London – and we pride ourselves on being on the forefront of the very latest methods and techniques. Depending on your circumstances, there are many hair colour techniques including;
Full Head Hair Colour & Colouring Grey Hair
Full head hair colours are perfect for those wanting just one single, block hair colour covering all of the hair. It’s also the best way to colour and cover those stubborn greys. This doesn’t necessarily have to mean permanent hair dyes, as semi permanent hair dyes and toners can also produce some fantastic results when it comes to hair colour coverage. At Colour My Life salon we are proud suppliers of milk_shake hair colour – which we use to create some beautiful, bespoke colour combinations and results.
Balayage Hair Colour
Balayage is often referred to as a ‘freehand technique’ because no foil or meche are used to create these bespoke, natural looking highlights. It is applied on the surface of your hair and not saturated through the section until the very tips, in order to create a very subtle, sophisticated look.
Our team of expert colourists at Colour My Life will be able to advise you on the most suitable colour four skin tone and overall look. Balayage pretty much works for all lengths of hair, except perhaps very short cropped hair. But best of all? It’s totally bespoke to you. The balayage experts at our hair salon in Clapham and Battersea area will be able to place the colour to suit your skin tone so it’ll look amazing and really light up your features.
Highlights and Lowlights
Using foils to add highlights or lowlights to hair is often regarded as one of the most natural looking hair colour techniques. By applying multiple colours and shades to a few strands of hair at a time, we can create a multi tonal, three dimensional hair colour. Highlights are perfect for creating those sun kissed hues, honey blondes and ash blonde colours. Lowlights really add depth to hair colour and can be used to create some subtle but striking hair colours.
Highlights and lowlights can be applied using foils. Strips of foil in varying lengths and widths are used as a framework for individual strands of hair to be placed onto the foils and the hair colour applied. A varying number of foils can be used and are usually broken down as follows:
Full Head Foils: Foil hi-lites or low-lites are placed throughout the whole head of hair. This is perfect for those who want all over even hair colour coverage and also for those who wear their hair in upstyles regularly. So, if you’re a gym bunny or someone who wears their hair up for work you might want to consider full head foil highlights or lowlights so that the hair colour is uniform all over.
Half-Head Foils: Foil high lights or low lights are placed generally around the crown area covering half the head. This will leave either your natural colour underneath or an all over tint. Half head foil highlights or lowlights is the most popular choice when it comes to foil highlights.
Partial Foils: Usually this is up to 8 foil highlights or lowlights placed in the hair. Typically concentrated in one area like the fringe or a popular choice for men’s hair colour. Partial foils can be used to create some dramatic colour injections in specific areas.
Hair Colour Correction at Colour My Life Salon Battersea, Wandsworth and Clapham Area
Many people think hair colour is easy to recreate at home and can be done using shop-bough boxed colours. But whilst it may be cheap to buy at first, what happens when that hair colour goes wrong?
Attempting to colour your hair at home can cause costly damage to your hair by overlapping colour and causing noticeable bands of hair colour to appear. Even all-over colour should always be recreated in a professional salon for the best possible results. Click here to find out more about our hair colour correction service.
