Well can’t really say we are impartial when it comes to hair, we like different because well that’s what we do, we have seen all kinds of hair and a lot looks the same after some point. What does excite us is when someone is so sure of who they are that no matter what someone will say they will do whatever they want.
It’s true some guys like to push there opinion on some woman and tell them what they like, as if it’s there right or something not sure. We say it’s your body do whatever makes you happy, if you want green hair then it’s green hair you must have, you want it short then cut it short.
Life is far too short to be trying to keep everyone else happy when at the end of the day the only person that really matters is you, if you make you happy you can make others happy but you have to be happy first.
Admit it, you have at some point thought why not, why not have a little pastel color and yet you haven’t done it yet.
So many decisions, do you go washed out, full blown mermaid, rainbow 🌈 or a solid hello how you doing fully Lit version. Well we can’t answer that only you can but let’s look at the next step if you do it then decide to change it.
If you have natural color and no color in it then your options are almost endless, if you have been colouring your hair black for the past decade then your options are limited but you still have options. The best way to color hair is to ensure the integrity of the structure of the hair whilst achieving the desired color. If you leave it in the right state then changing each time is always going to be an achievable.
There is always some things that need to be done in the salon and some things you should be doing at home to make sure your hair is in its optimal condition.
Now it’s too early to call them up and to tell them they were wrong but so far we haven’t seen much in the salon. Too early to say if it’s bollocks or not but certainly with the amount of bright colors we are doing it’s only a matter of time!

If your up for it give us a call!
You have spent a few months semi naked, carefree and braided now your thinking you want a change of scenery on dry land with a new look so what are you going to do?
First things first let’s remove all traces of glitter, it’s a little messy in between the sheets anyway.
Not to mention around the house, that shit just goes everywhere!
Have your last little romp around town with your tail and topless while you can still be considered exotic, as soon as that color changes they will all think your just crazy!
Now what options do you have with the color?
Depending on how much color, how long you have been doing it and the condition of your hair, it’s not an easy question to answer. Most likely your natural color has been lightened so bleaching your hair to remove the pastel should be done with great caution. Remember even if you can not see the blonde it is still there and so is the hair that was dragged through death and back.
Taking it darker is possible but kind of lame considering you are currently a creature from the deep blue. One way would be to let it fade out naturally, we can remove some extra color to help speed up the process. If your totally over it we suggest a slightly deeper color that camouflages the pastel but be warned, no matter how dark you go, you will most likely be shocked!
So you’ve invested considerable time looking for the perfect color on Pinterest and now searching which salon to call before making the big step, let’s drop some not so “alternative facts” and help you sort through the nonsense that we heard you might be told!
Understand a few things so you can leave the rest to a little common sense. The darker the hair the more it has to go through to get any light shade, the more you bleach it the more damage it can do. Hair is its gold yellow or red needs to be lighter to remove these undertones before being able to get the “mermaid” looking colors unless they too are red, yellow or orange.
- Depending on how dark your hair is, it can take 2-3 applications and up to 9 hours.
- May not be able to remove red, orange or yellow totally depends on your hair which in turn will effect end result
- Is more expensive than a regular color yes. Sometime a lot, 3-4 times. Anyone who offers this at a very cheap price or deal be suspicious
- Once you do the pastel shade over the blonde or lightened sections, understand it will fade fast, can stay for 10-15 washes or could last 1-3 months depending on hair quality after lightening.
- Will it make your hair fall out… no. If done incorrectly it could break but there are treatments to prevent this happening.
- Care and at home Maintainence? Sulfate free shampoo that won’t strip color. Pastel blondes may require a purple shampoo to maintain tone ( like kms blonde shampoo or clairol blonde available on line )
- You can color it back close to your natural color yes however covering the color does not change the fact underneath its colored and could be damaged. Long term care is required.
So the darker the hair the harder it is, the more work needed and the more upkeep. Can it be done? Of course it can be but takes time and know how.
