Want to go Platinum steel blonde, read this first!

The love of ash blonde or platinum ash grey hair has as possibly always been there are whilst it may appear easy and something that anyone can do it is not for the faint hearted!

There is science behind color I g hair and it’s never about pulling out a box mixing it up and coming back in 30 min. Lightening hair is about understanding the pigments in the hair and knowing how to counteract the ones you don’t want without ruining the hair quality.

We wanted to show you before and after on this challenge which took almost 2 years, Miss X had about 50% grey hair and was naturally dark ( not black but dark brown ) when she went to another salon they coloured her hair black by surprise and of course you could see the white hair grow back in 2 days. Once we met it was maybe shortly after that and she wanted to go lighter but in case you didn’t know, to get black or dark brown out is almost impossible as it has the most red pigment of all colors. Now to go lighter is one thing but to go platinum ash it’s a challenge! Well after about 12 months and not really cutting much off we managed to get to this.

You can see the gold on the ends which simply wouldn’t come out no matter how many times we tried!

As she didn’t want to cut it off, which would have been easier we kept treating it lighter gently over time and several months later managed to remove 100% of the warm undertones and finally finish it as a pure ash platinum grey hair!

It’s not out of a box, nor can it be done in one sitting rarely.

So if you have been wanting to go light then come see us and talk about the process as it’s different from person to person but we will always put the quality of your hair first.

To get a quote we need to physically see your hair, drop in and talk to us for a quote as it frantically varies from hair to hair & person to person.

How to color black hair white

Grass is always greener or the hair is always ideal when it’s the opposite to what you already have right?

For those of you who have dark hair and always dreamed of having it white platinum blonde or ash grey, it can be done!

While anything is possible it all depends on your hair and the condition of it. There is no miracle color that can in one application get you white, it’s a process! The darker your hair the more gold pigment it has so it’s a process that requires patience and will irritate the scalp that’s just reality.

If your hair is healthy enough to be able to take the process then it’s possible, the process varies from person to person based on hair texture, density, current color, and condition so needs to be seen to give you an exact quote and can vary once we start depending on your hair. It’s not cheap in fact a lot say it’s expensive however the product time and expertise that is involved it is worth it to have hair you love!

Good to note that the lighter you go, the faster you see your natural hair grow out, the Maintainence is fairly simple but can involve using a toning shampoo and conditioner to maintain the perfect ash tone and keep the warmer tones from returning.
