À LA MODE HAIR COLORING

à la mode hair color

Do you consider yourself a hipster trending the latest in fashion but just can’t find the right hairstylist for some à la mode hair coloring? Is your color a bit dull and  just needs the right touch of coloring to compliment your individual style?

Well, when visiting the salon for the fist time, make sure you dress the part. Dressing the part will send the clear message of what your hair colorist or stylist needs to cue off.

Here’s a perfect example of some à la modeI hair coloring.  Using the balayage technique, I threw some shimmering lights into Clark Kent’s hair to create the Superman à la mode look in hair coloring.

We all get a little bored with our hair sometimes. Ask your hair stylist for some à la mode hair coloring that sets you apart from all the others.

À LA MODE HAIR COLORING can change the way you see yourself or, at the least, bring out the hipster in you once again. We all need to feel À LA MODE sometime, don’t we?

DRY FRIZZY HAIR REMEDY

before and after keratin treatment

Had a wonderful visit with Liza. Liza came in asking for a keratin treatment. She had dry frizzy hair and needed a remedy fast.

Of course I was very happy to help Liza get her hair back in shape again. Keratin treatments are the most beneficial treatments for curly frizzy hair.

Liza’s keratin treatment left her with the softest, straightest smoothest hair you can get. The process took all of 2.5 hours. The keratin treatment of choice is Uberliss. Uberliss is a formaldehyde free keratin.

Thank you Uberliss for another successful treatment.

The Uberliss keratin treatment is formaldehyde and methylene glycol free!

When doing any kind of chemical treatments at the salon, I use only the safest and best color and keratin treatments. Uberliss a formaldehyde and methylene glycol free product. One of the best keratin treatments available today.

One of the nastier ingredients you’ll find listed on the back of any consumer product is formaldehyde.  It’s a colorless, strong-smelling chemical.

Say no to formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (FRP’s) are still used today in a number of cosmetic products to help prevent the growth of bacteria.  This will help preserve the shelf life of the product at your expense.

In the case with certain types of keratin treatments, it help’s smooth and lock the hair into place for months on end. But, at your own personal health cost.

As a known carcinogen, formaldehyde has been linked to several types of cancers, as well as numerous other health concerns, including allergic reactions, skin sensitization, eye problems, headaches, and problems with the immune system.

Needless to say, it’s best just to stay away and say no to any products with or producing formaldehyde gas. Go formaldehyde free today! Go Uberliss.

WHAT IS BALAYAGE?

Describing what balayage looks like

I always get the question, What is balayage?

Balayage is the French word for feathering.

This technique is feathering color into hair. It can be decorative, made to look natural, or all outrageous.  This process can be a splashing of color into hair, highlighting in certain areas (sometimes around the face), or just a few peekaboo lights so they appear once in a while when you move your head a certain way.  I’ll talk about Peekaboo highlights in a future post.

These highlights, low lights or lights in general can be done several ways.

You can paint them on, board them on, or pick them up and put them in foil to strategically place them where you want to see them exact.

This is one of my favorite ways to color hair. The effects are beautiful.

Next time you feel like experimenting with you hair color, ask about the balayage technique.

SALON CLIENTS

MJ Hair Designs, Keratin Treatment Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles

Recently I received an unsolicited text from a salon client who was reporting to me how much she liked the keratin treatment she had just had.

Clients sometimes take for granted the emotional energy we hair stylists put into not only making sure their hair looks good, but always satisfied with the customer service they receive when they visit the salon.

Emily, a fairly new salon client was sweet enough to send me a text about how quickly and easily her has has been to take care of since her Uberliss keratin treatment.

 

I just want to say, it means a great deal that she took the time to not only drop me the message, but include pictures of what her hair was looking like so that I may keep track of my notes for the next time she comes in.

Thank you Emily!

And to all my salon clients, thank you for taking the time to let us know how we’re doing.

Always  making sure I have the best and safest products, research is one of my passions. Finding out about the ingredients in the products I use is key.  The quality of the products I use is and always will be my  top priority.

In the age of today’s ingredients, vetting the products should always be a must. Scrutinizing them should be number one. The degradation of ingredients in the products available are more harmful than ever.

It’s up to me to make sure salon clients always get the best and are not subjected to unnecessary toxicity.

We’re really interested in making  sure that you’re not only happy and coming back, but proud to refer your friends and family so that they too  become our new salon clients, friends and family.

Thank you!

SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME

When I want a stunning bombshell blonde, as a colorist, my go to is SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME!

This is the most gentle fast, blonde me bleach I’ve ever used. The problem with getting all the yellow and orange out of a blonde is that it will sometimes take reapplication to make that happen. Not with SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME.

SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME is not only fast but will not blow the cuticle to smithereens. You’ll be left with the pale blonde ready for the dp glaze of your choice.

For my glazes I use Redken Shades EQ. Redken has an array of colors to use for a wide variety of choices.

Mind you, just because you get to the right base blonde with SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME, with your next step of glazing, you’re only half way there.

The next process is just as important. Toning, is a delicate dance of finding the right shade or shades for the finishing result.

In this case, I used a Platinum Ice formula after my with a hint of the Cafe Au Lait and a lot of the Crystal Clear after my SCHWARZKOPF BLONDE ME to slow it down for control.

Enjoy the pictures, and make your appointments today.

LONG HAIR COLOR BALAYAGE

Long hair balayage, mjhairdesigns, hair color specialist, hair color expert

Ever wonder what it might be like to have long hair color balayage? Coloring your long hair is a major risk if you don’t have the right person doing it. It could take years for your hair to recover from the wrong person coloring it.

In all the years I’ve been doing hair, I’ve seen many hair colorists who just don’t get it. Some hair colorists go to far with color, and some don’t go far enough.

Here’s an example of a young lady with super dark long hair who wanted something a little more decorative in style and color.  When she first approached me with the idea of putting in some highlights, I balked at the idea knowing this could be a risky affair with such dark hair.  But who better than myself to throw some color into her life and some hair color balayage into her long hair. Although I loved the color of her hair, I sensed this  young lady was just trying to be different. I’d rather be the one doing her hair than knowing some inexperienced person who might ruin her hair for a long time to come. 

When she first came to me, I noticed the old orangey ends that someone never brought up light enough to the right level to get her away from the brass. She had been permanently stained for a long time.

I immediately got to work on this gorgeous super long hair that demanded total care every step of the way. With a couple of different processes, not only was the color beautiful when I got done, but the integrity of her hair had never been compromised.

Take a look at her before and after.

MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS

If you live in an area where there is hard water, chances are you’ve noticed that your hair isn’t in the best of shape. Ask Michael at MJ Hair Designs about the MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS.

This is because minerals such as rust and chlorine build up in your hair, leaving it feeling dry, coarse and dirty. This excess buildup can also cause blondes to take on a brassy hue in their tresses. A good way to remove this buildup and start with a clean slate is by getting a Malibu hair treatment.

Malibu Basics

MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS are salon treatments. There are also at-home products like Malibu shampoos, conditioners and other hair treatments. The best way to get the most effective Malibu treatment, though, is by visiting a Michael at MJ Hair Designs.

A packet of the Malibu hair treatment consists of granules referred to as a “crystal gels.” These granules are mixed with water and rubbed into the hair. Stylists usually allow the treatments to process under a hair dryer for at least 40 minutes. Make sure that you have at least an hour to spare before getting  the MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS , depending on the length and thickness of your hair, processing time can vary.

A Malibu treatment typically will remove excess buildup in your hair caused from hard water, calcium from swimming pools and water softeners. Hard water often contains chlorine and iron, which is what makes lighter hair take on a coppery or brassy hue. If you are a swimmer or use the pool frequently, chlorine and copper can build up in your hair, also causing damage. Copper is what causes light hair to take on a greenish cast. MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS will effectively remove this buildup.

Hair Prep

MALIBU BUILD UP TREATMENTS are also great for prepping hair for color, perms and relaxers. Think of each strand of hair as a small hallway. The more people you shove into the hallway, the less room there will be, and eventually, you will run out of space. When there is buildup in the hair, minerals and impurities absorb into the strands, saturating them. As a result, hair color, perms or keratin treatments have less room for the absorption of these products.

MALIBU BUILD UP REMOVING TREATMENTS are applied before a professional hair coloring, perming or keratin treatment. It will remove buildup and make room for these processes.

Frequency of Treatment

Michael at MJ Hair Designs typically recommends that you get a professional Malibu treatment every nine weeks or so, especially if you have color-treated hair. If you are using at-home Malibu treatments, follow the directions on the packaging. Malibu clarifying shampoos and conditioners should be used weekly. Other clarifying shampoos like Neutrogena Clean Volume, Clairol Herbal Essences Clarifying and Avalon Organics Lemon Clarifying shampoos will all work great.
