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.

GRAY HAIR…IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO GO AWAY

GRAY HAIR
The only thing worse than a gray, cloudy day is a day starting out with cloudy-looking GRAY HAIR!  But when it comes to coloring that gray and making it go away, you really want a hair care specialist who can give you that authentically youthful look you want.  You need the right hair-color products and an expert stylist who knows what they’re doing to makes those grays go away.  In a pinch though, here are four important tips to remember.

TIP #1: GO WITH A PERMANENT HAIR COLOR

To color gray hair, one option is to use a permanent hair color. FRAMESI’S NN SERIES is an excellent way to go.  It’s specially formulated to cover 100% of that gray and comes in a variety of shades.  Blonde hair, brown hair, black hair or red, Framesi’s covers them all.  From their line, you can easily find your own personal best match.  Whether your hair is a super-light blonde or closer to a deep brunette hue, Framesi’s has the perfect match for you.

TIP #2: DON’T FORGET THE HIGHLIGHTS

Let’s say yours is a lighter hair color.  You can beat the graying effect of your lighter locks by having your hair-color professional add highlights to your color.  Those strategic highlights will give you a more fun, natural look.

TIP #3: LIGHTEN UP!

Your hair color, that is.  You want to look younger?  (Hey, who doesn’t?)  Then keep in mind that very dark hair color, especially black, tends to intensify the appearance of and draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles.  (And I know you don’t want that.)  Here’s a neat little solution.  Rather than trying to to match your current hair color exactly, especially if your hair is naturally dark, try a permanent hair color that’s one or two shades lighter.  This little secret will not only help your hair look brighter, but your spirits will be brighter, too.  You’ll get a more naturally youthful look, all the way round.

TIP #4: TEMPORARILY CONCEAL YOUR GRAY HAIR

Even those people who’re most diligent with dyeing their hair, chances are, those sneaky gray hairs have been caught peeking though their roots from time to time.  (Not a pretty picture, is it?)  One day, your hair may look flawless and the next?  Those gray roots may look an inch long.  (And we can’t have that.)  When that happens and you don’t have time to color your hair again for a few days, but don’t want your gray hair on display, don’t panic.  It doesn’t mean you have to hide your locks beneath a hat all day.  All you need for an easy fix is a temporary root cover-up spray.  L’Oreal Paris Magic Root Cover Up will save the day.  Spray it directly onto new hair growth and just partway through the length of your hair, to blend in.  Once those roots are covered, your little camouflaging secret will last through your next shampoo.  Be sure to stock up on your favorite boxed color because when those gray roots start to show, you sure don’t want to be showing them off.
These were just a few tips to help keep your gray…at bay.  A few gray-covering tips you can do at home.  But remember, to get the best effect at covering that gray hair, do make an appointment to see your hair color specialist.  That would be me.  I’m ready to make your own gray, gray...GO AWAY. 

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!

SALONS NEAR ME IN SHERMAN OAKS

MJ Hair Designs, Sherman Oaks Salons Near Me

As some of you know there are quite a few salons in the Sherman Oaks

salons near me

“find” in Google. That being said, how do I pick the right one? One way to find the right place for you is to check out the website first. But sometimes that doesn’t say enough about the salon or the people and services being offered there. I always recommend calling the salon and speaking to a hairstylist personally. If the hairstylist is willing to speak to you and take the time to find out your preferences or concerns, you’re at the right place.

Salons that don’t specialize in hair color, or Brazilian Blowouts, or formaldehyde free keratin treatments will not tell you. So type in Sherman Oaks salons near me and a google rank will rank the same salons whether or not they.  I always recommend going down the list. Skip the Yelp ads with the same ranks time and again since they are usually paying for it or inorganically getting solicited reviews for that spot from paid customers. Go to the middle of the page, or even the second or third page. You might be pleasantly surprised.  The  boutique salons in the Sherman Oaks salons

near me

“find” will usually take more time and have a more seasoned hairstylists that will almost always take more time with you. These boutique salons in the Sherman Oaks salons near me “find” are usually a little pricier than places that rank higher such as Fantastic Sams, Howard Kurtz, Envy Salon, Serenity Salon or even the Onyx Salon in Sherman Oaks. But, don’t be fooled into thinking because a salon is at the top that it’s going to be the sure best thing.

MJ Hair Designs prides itself on taking the time. Michael Joseph at MJ Hair Designs is now specializing in organic color, formaldehyde free keratin and some of the most cutting edge techniques he brings with hime from the trade shows from all over the world. Michael will certainly take the time. Take the time and call and ask to speak to Michael about what you need. He is one of the leading hairstylists in Sherman Oaks and Los Angeles.

So the next time you look up Sherman Oaks Salons Near Me, look up Michael at MJ Hair Designs.

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!

MJ Hair Designs Blonde on Blonde

Blonde on Blonde, Master Hair Colorist MJ Hair Designs Blonde on Blonde (818) 783-0084

Master Hair Colorist Michael Joseph of MJ Hair Designs says when you go to the salon to make the big change, make sure MJ Hair Designs color specialists know everything about your hair history. And when we say everything, we really mean everything.

Master Hair Colorist Michael Joseph says when people dye their hair darker, they don’t realize that months and months later the color is actually still in their hair. So say in September, someone went brown and in May she wants to go blonde. MJ Hair Designs says, since you were darker in the fall, we’re going to be battling tons of orange and red tones from the [original] hair dye, If you’ve already dyed your hair before I’ve seen you, please make sure to let me know. It makes a big difference in the products I use to get you to your new look.

Being a blonde on blonde sometimes means the base color is one shade and there will be another shade running through the rest. This will create a more natural effect and sometimes helps cover your gray hair. If you’re not going for pure platinum or a blonde on blonde, you actually want to make sure your roots are darker than your ends so the color looks and grows out nicely. The ends should [always] be a little lighter than the roots otherwise the color can look artificial.

If you’re daring enough to tackle the challenge of dyeing your hair blonde at home, choose the box color you want to go with very carefully – because what you see isn’t always what you get! “If you wanted a buttery blonde, sometimes you might have to buy the ashiest box in the store, which is the opposite of buttery! The reason…? In order to negate the natural orange tones you may already have in your hair [as a brunette] and don’t even realize are in your hair, you need to do this. That’s why stylists in the salon consider everything, like how much gray you have, how dark your hair is and if it’s ever been color treated before.

After you make a color change, give your hair a break! Bleach plus heat with and a blow dryer, flat iron or curling iron can cause breakage. People more often go over the front sections with a dryer or iron and thats where I see most of the breakage.

It may look scary to slather a purple product over your strands, but it works, MJ Hair Designs says. This helps neutralize yellow-orange brassy tones [which can occur from washing your hair, environmental stressors and naturally if you started as a brunette with reddish undertones], I recommend using a purple shampoo once a week to combat that undesirable look. But is there ever any chance of hair turning purple from it? It’s possible, but very rare. People also underestimate how summertime activities, like swimming in the pool and ocean, can dry out your hair, I always recommend my clients use a deep conditioner or mask in place of their usual conditioner.

Master Hair Colorist Michael Joseph of MJ Hair Designs hates to break the news, but spritzing lemon juice or Sun-In in your hair won’t create the beachy highlights of your dreams, but cause unnecessary dry hair.  Brunettes should stay far away from the juice.

Do blondes really have more fun? We can neither confirm nor deny, but these fabulous hair color ideas for 2018 have us itching to try something new. If rainy, cold wintery weather has given your beauty routine a major case of cabin fever, we’ve got your ticket to somewhere sunny. First stop: the salon. Mine! At MJ Hair Designs whether channeling a platinum shade à la Monroe or our most recent color crush, ash blonde, we’re finding color inspiration to update our ‘do on all ends of the blonde spectrum. Get inspired before your next hair appointment with blonde hair colors to highlight complexions of all ranges—and to leave you feeling fresh and fabulous. Pinterest beauty board ready? Let’s go girls.
