COLOR WHEEL

Color Wheel, Colour Chart

When it comes to coloring hair, one of the biggest tools a hair colorist can use is a color wheel. The color wheel helps hone in and target a shade that the hair color specialist can either want to neutralize or emphasize.

Primary colors are red yellow and blue are the basic colors and cannot be made by mixing other colors. These are the colors that matter the most when coloring hair. The bases of these colors make up all the other colors.

Secondary colors and made by mixing two primary colors.

Tertiary colors are made by mixing one primary with one adjacent secondary color

Warm colors are advancing colors and Cool colors are receding.

When it comes to coloring your hair, make sure your hair colorist understand the color of law. And yes, make sure he or she owns a color wheel.

AMMONIA-FREE HAIR COLOR – CØR.color

Hair Colorist MJ Hair Designs and Ammonia-Free CØR.color
Oh, ammonia!  It may be fine for cleaning-up around your house but not for your hair.  The time has come for ammonia-free hair color and you’ve come to the right place to find out about why that’s so important.  O&M CØR.color is the next generation in ammonia-free hair color.  They call it CØR because clean color is at the core of what makes their hair-color line better for your hair’s strength and good health.
This new hair-coloring technique didn’t just come about overnight.  It took years of research, along with real-life in-salon testing to make coloring your hair such a clean, ammonia-free and risk-free process.  O&M wanted to make sure they got it right with CØR.color.  Their revolutionary new system guarantees super coverage of graying hair, while minimizing scalp irritation.  How’d they do it?  Well, it took some doing but but I’m really impressed with the way they pulled it off.
For starters, O&M removed the common scalp-irritating ingredients that were once common in so many hair-coloring products of the past.  The biggest culprit?  It was ammonia.  From the CØR line, the ammonia is gone!  But they didn’t stop there.  CØR.color uses no PPDs, no Resorcinol, no Gluten or soy, and no animal-product ingredients, either.  That’s right, O&M CØR.color is good for your hair and for the environment.
I’m thrilled to be adding the CØR.color line to my color palette at the salon.  In fact, I’ve used it on a few of my clients and, I’m happy to say, RAVE reviews are already coming in.  Reviews like these.
M. Popkin Kline says, “I’ve never had hair-color cover 101% of my grey, and give my hair so much vibrancy, while keeping it smooth-to-the-touch, looking really healthy and shiny!”  D. F. confesses she’s been allergic to just about everything.  She’d not been able to find a hair-color system that didn’t literally make her sick.  She’s a true believer now and is happy to say, CØR.color was the color system that saved her hair!
When it comes to coloring your hair, these days, it’s all about CLEAN!  Consumers are constantly looking for pure, more natural, high performance hair-care products, giving you clean, ammonia-free color.  Well, they can stop looking.  Out with the ammonia!  CØR.color really is the clean, irritant-free answer to those hair-coloring problems you may have had in the past.  You won’t find O&M CØR.color line just anywhere.  But you can find it when you visit me at the salon.
So come on in and let me show you the clean, ammonia-free solution to coloring your hair!

LIGHTS, CAMERA…ACTION! EMMY AWARDS 2018

Emmy Awards 2018 Emmys MJHairDesigns Emmys 2018 red carpet fashion-see-every look as the stars arrive

Got your bowl of popcorn ready?  I do, and I’m ready to settle down watching the 2018

Emmy Awards

on NBC tonight!  Oh, I just love those Hollywood awards shows and have, since I was a kid.  I’m not exactly a “kid” anymore but would have never imagined when I was, that I’d actually have the chance to work behind the scenes, making some of the guests in the audience look like a million bucks.

Earlier this year, I had an exciting honor, styling hair for the wife of the the producer of the hit movie, Boss Baby.  (Oh, my late mother would have been so proud of me.)  And, I must say, when I was done, she was as pleased with how her hair looked, as I was to do it.
Emmys_2018_MJHairDesignsThe 70th Primetime Emmys will be held tonight but you may not know, there’s a lead-up event to tonight’s big show, the CREATIVE ARTS EMMYS.  Held at downtown Los Angeles’ new Microsoft Theater, these awards honor outstanding technical achievement in a wide variety of television programs.  They’re the people you don’t see on camera, who work hard behind the scenes in production, getting those fabulous TV shows you love so much from Hollywood to your TVs, tablets and smart phones.
The Creative Arts Emmys were held September 8th & 9th and I had a hand well, actually, two hands, in doing the hair for the wife of one of the night’s nominees.  He’s the sound technician for one of my favorite shows, THE VOICE.  (Don’t you love it?)  So I was doubly thrilled having the chance to do his wife’s hair.  It was so much fun, not to mention exciting, on a couple of levels.  That’s because I got to do what I do best, hair.  I cut, colored and styled her hair and, I have to say, styling is the favorite part of what I do.  That’s because it gives me the chance to really show off my own talent.  And nothing makes me happier than seeing a lady, or man, look in the mirror, see my work, smile and say, “Thank You, Michael!”  Hey, the pleasure was all mine.
mjhairdesigns_emmys_2018I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to show you just how beautiful I can make your hair.  It’s what we do best here at MJ Hair Designs.  Just like the two beautiful women whose hair I did for the Oscars and the Emmys, I can make you ready for your own close-up, too.  Let me prove it to you!
Ooops, popcorn’s ready and the show’s about to start.  I’m so excited.  Oh, who will win?

NELLY RODI & MJ HAIR DESIGNS AGREE

Nelly Rodi & MJ Hair Designs Agree Nelly Rodi, MJ Hair Designs, NAHA, PBA, 2018, Best Hair Stylist Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks, Best Hair Colorist, Best Salon, Salon, Sherman Oaks

Nelly Rodi & MJ Hair Designs

agree that the trends in hair and fashion are reflecting light that is fragmented and creates the prisms that inspire hair color, cosmetics, fashion and nails. Blinding rays of light, metallic rainbows or iridescence… Multicolored juxtapositions highlight hair, lids, and nails and design vibrant, blurry, shot effects.

Nelly Rodi & MJ Hair Designs agree that women are embracing hedonism with intrinsic colors of nature at it are best. Golden sunshines and reassuring happy colors at an intense ratio are taking hold. Reds, ultra violet, holographic glass, luminous vibrations and glow in the dark cosmetics in night time make-up.

Hedonism

is a school of thought that argues that the pursuit of pleasure and intrinsic goods are the primary or most important goals of human life. A hedonist strives to maximize net pleasure (pleasure minus pain), but when having finally gained that pleasure, happiness remains stationary.

Ethical hedonism is the idea that all people have the right to do everything in their power to achieve the greatest amount of pleasure possible to them. It is also the idea that every person’s pleasure should far surpass his or her amount of pain. Ethical hedonism is said to have been started by Aristippus of Cyrene, a student of Socrates. He held the idea that pleasure is the highest good. (*Wiki)

So how does that tie into hair and fashion?

Nelly Rodi & MJ Hair Designs share the idea that the fashion forward thought of hedonism is coming alive in the pleasure of reflecting attention-grabbing color at a very high level.

Nelly Rodi and MJ Hair Designs also agree that hedonism is a fashion forward “me too” movement of empowering women to take back control by standing out on the runway, the workplace and now the streets. NO MORE APOLOGIES. LOOK AT ME… THE NEW ME!

BIRACIAL HAIR – MJ HAIR DESIGNS

Salon MJ Hair Designs - Sherman Oaks Salon (818) 783-0084 MJ Hair Designs - 14252 Ventura Bl. Sherman Oaks (818) 783-0084

MJ Hair Designs – 14252 Ventura Bl. Sherman Oaks (818) 783-0084 – Ever wonder if there’s anyone out there who understands you kind of hair. Biracial hair can be tricky if you don’t understand the small nuances or the products to use. Biracial men and women can sometime have a problem not knowing where to turn or who might know how to cut or style their hair. Michael at MJ Hair Designs understand perfectly and so does the NY Times!

MAELING TAPP remembers the moment three years ago when she saw her mother and sisters wearing their coil-prone hair in its natural state and decided that she, too, would stop slathering caustic paste onto her scalp to burn her own similarly textured locks into straight submission.

“Unfortunately, after four months I relaxed my hair again because I just didn’t know what I was doing,” said Ms. Tapp, 25, a Ph.D. candidate in materials science and engineering at Georgia Tech.

“Going natural” is the term used by many African-American women who decide to stop chemically processing, or relaxing, their hair. It’s a move that can be fraught with confusion, missteps and sometimes pain, as the 2009 Chris Rock documentary “Good Hair” attested.

Many women with Afro-textured hair have not seen it in its unadulterated state since childhood. And even some who are acquainted with the texture of their untreated tresses are not comfortable styling their hair in ways they believe are fashionable and appropriate for them. Figuring out which of the countless hair-care tools and products on the market might work can make the undertaking even more overwhelming.

Tired of expensive, time-consuming salon visits, many would-be “naturals” are searching YouTube for inspiration, instruction and other people who have made peace with their kinks and curls.

“I thought, ‘Why don’t I just document my own journey to help keep track of what’s working for me?’ ” she said. She hoped others would learn from her. “I wanted to contribute to the wealth of information that’s out there,” Ms. Tapp said.

The project is also adding, modestly, to her personal wealth. The channel’s corresponding blog, NaturalChica.com, attracts enough page views that she has sold advertising: more money, she said, than she would earn with a typical work-study program paying the minimum wage.

There are hundreds of women like Ms. Tapp on YouTube, selling lotions, potions and notions for natural hair, or posting video tutorials about how to achieve the look. Many of them link to CurlyNikki.com, a three-year-old site founded by Alicia Nicole Walton, a psychotherapist who wanted to create a place for women to gather online and chat about their hair issues. Ms. Walton, 28, said she wanted to be an advocate for women who feel social pressure to have their hair straightened. MJ Hair Designs supports this commentary.
