colour my bronde

Bronde- The Clue is in the name! Bronde is a colour technique that fuses brown and blonde to create a sun kissed rich hair effect. 

 

By Blending Brown and Blonde lets you enjoy the best of both worlds. Balayage is always an amazing technique for when you want to go lighter of darker but not high maintenance so win, win and bronde will be a winner for those opting for a change but not drastic ..

 

So, if you favour rich, natural brunette tones , this is one to try.

Bronde is a technique done best in a salon by a colourist Mochas are perfect for the Bronde look as they are rich and glossy. L’Oreal Professional bleaches have advanced technologies. 

How a colourist places bleach to strands is a technique and our girls are masters at colour placement to highlight specific facial areas, to lift and enhance I mean who does not want a hairlift? 

 

Colour Refresh – Colour and Tone

Colour and toner both contribute to colouring hair but in different ways, clients are not aware that you can get your hair toned in between colour service to brighten it up to keep you going until your next appointment. 

The difference between hair colour and toner? Well, hair colour is a chemical process and yes ladies all know this but just case you were not aware Toner is not for all hair types ‘but’ most used in double processing this means hair that is bleached up or blonde. 

We are a L’Oreal Professional salon and what we would use of many options for colour would be L’Oreal Richesse- Alkaline tone on tone cream colour 

Ammonia free, improved white hair coverage by up to 70%

L’Oreal Dia Light- Acid tone on tone gel cream colour

Ammonia free and the more natural hair with luminous reflects.

Maintenance should be top of your list as fashion colours such as pastel tones fade fast. Toner in between colour , blonde, balayage, highlights rids hair of those unwanted tones like orange, orange yellow and yellow, brassy hair colour fade..

A blonde toner can neutralise and correct the tone of your hair without lightening it further.

Colour is the chemical process and toner cancels out unwanted tones in your hair. 

Highly recommend this service in between colour service. We all hate that fading phase in between. 

 

Living the wash and go dream

Peace, love and good hair

This weather we have been getting the last few days has been nothing short of awesome ‘but’ there is always one of those I have been trying to keep my hair off my face , away from my neck and get back to sunbathing 🙂 

The Octopus Bun

Yes, you all know what this is mastering this messy look is hard !! Getting the right side of messy is hard so the trick is “texture’ So this is where the products come to hand even if you have next day hair product is your friend so these are the two gems I have found even on next day hair. First off is Loreal Tecni Art Pli- Backstage fave ladies this heat activated spray is a gem.

Second in the running Loreal Tecni art Density Material is a texturizing wax-paste creates style with a volumized effect even when braiding back or up into a top knot so hair is not flat.

Adding a few key products in between your trips to the salon you will get some of your life back I promise 🙂

Innovative Hair Colour..

eb7c2a57daf0e5b7daa5f5f61c6d58e6

At Foxandbow our mantra is always hair care and most girls will tell you they have had some major dye-induced damage to their hair in their lifetime. 

Introducing INOA an immonia free in salon permanent hair colour system by L’oreal Professional- INOA is short for Innovation no ammonia. INOA is a hair colour line that replaces ammonia with a “minimal amount” of MEA & oil hence the term ODS which is an oil delivery system.

35832b2aff52b5f2c3485e19eaae7adf

3 reasons we love INOA – ‘smell, hair reaction and range of colour’. 

Ammonia is used in hair colour to open up the hair fiber so it absorbs dye better, smell is awful so get rid of ammonia, get rid of smell. ODS- oil delivery system- that uses oil molecules to more gently open the hair shaft to absorb dye.

inoa-available-list

Range of colour, more range and more natural hair colour looks. The ingredients in INOA preserve lipids (natural condition of hair) much better than ammonia can. 

L’oreal is responding to a market that is demanding ”cleaner” hair products. Discover INOA at foxandbow, with the expertise of your hairdresser and an in-depth colour consultation to achieve the perfect shade for you.

BEFORE:

 Michelle Pre-lightened first using Loreal Platinium Plus 20 Vol nutri developer and then Dialight Richesse 10.22 added to this mix was ColorpHlex this is a treatment service that is done when the colour is being applied.

Colorphlex-logo

ColorpHlex protects hair from breakage & damage during colour process, hair is left 4 times stronger. #winning If you are looking to go several shades lighter colorpHlex is very effective with lightening and highlights it returns hair to its natural healthy state. So Becky was in good hands with going so many shades lighter without damaging the hair. free from sulphates, parabens and formaldehyde can be added with fashion colours and toner.

Caren began doing what she does best and this is the process above of styling Becky’s hair to make her restyle complete.
