Is It Time To Hope On The Brunette Bandwagon?

Have you seen Lucy Hale? Apparently, she's joined the brunette bandwagon. Just a few weeks earlier at the Oscar’s we saw Charlize Theron and Emilia Clarke switch up their iconic platinum locks for a more romantic chocolate hue. It’s certainly looking like brunette will be the one of the biggest hair trends this year!

Fortunately, this is one trend that we can try out at home and without a ton of commitment. Clairol Natural Instincts is a brand that we've used for years and it's a brand that we trust because it's never done us wrong.  This semi-permanent line is formulated with Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera for glossy like shine and natural color you can easily switch out after a few washes.

Check Out These Changes!

Clairol Natural Instincts can be found online and at mass retailers nationwide!

Top Holiday Hair Tips From Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham

Everyone wants to look and feel their best during the holiday season, radiant hair included. Unfortunately with our social calendars filled to the brim from Thanksgiving into the New Year, it can be challenging to find the time to care for and maintain your haircolor. To help guide your haircare regimen this season, Redken Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham shares her top tips for making the most of your time at the salon during the holidays.

  1. Forward thinking: I typically advise my clients to wait six to eight weeks for gray touch-ups and eight to 12 weeks for highlights. With this in mind and knowing that salons get incredibly busy around the holidays, schedule your holiday color appointment with as much advance notice as possible. If you are going in for "corrective color”, to correct color results you are unhappy with from a prior coloring experience, be prepared for a longer visit as your colorist may need to remove old color and then recolor your hair.
  2. Show, don’t tell: If you plan to try out a new look for the holidays, whether bold or subtle, bringing photographs and examples of haircolor you love will help you and your colorist explore your color options and ensure that you both mean the same thing when you say “honey blonde” or “scarlet red.” One technique I’ve been using a lot recently is a Metallic Blur haircolor – a combination of luxe bronze and gold tones that are softened together using Redken's new Blur technique. The end result is a natural shimmering finish that is perfect for those holiday pictures and parties! 
  3. When in doubt, refresh: If the holidays don’t fall in-between your scheduled color appointments or you do not have the time for a full color appointment this December, ask your colorist for a Redken Shades EQ gloss treatment to enhance shine. Healthy hair is a staple regardless of the occasion or the outfit and Shades EQ is a quick service that works wonders on hair to tone color, refresh highlights, and correct uneven tone. Another great alternative is a Redken Chemistry System in-salon treatment in-between or just before a color service for noticeable long-lasting color results and improved condition. Redken Chemistry rebuilds the hair from the inside out and allows your colorist to mix and match the systems based on your specific hair type. You can simultaneously address your hair’s frizziness while locking in your color treatment with two targeted treatments in one!
  4. Maintenance is key! Between your many holiday updo’s, curling irons and flatiron run-throughs, the holidays can do serious damage to your locks! That is why at-home maintenance can be just as important as salon treatments. For blondes, it is important to balance out the brass, which is where Blonde Idol Custom-Tone Conditioner Violet for Cool Blondes comes in. The adjustable color-depositing daily conditioner is perfect for preserving tonality between salon visits. I recommend that my clients use it the day after they get their hair colored and increase the amount they use as time passes.
  5. Brunette Beauty: To make your brunette shade last longer than your New Year’s resolution, I recommend sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners such as Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner or ColorExtend Magnetics to help shield, stabilize and secure color intensity.

Redken products can only be guaranteed authentic when purchased from a salon. To locate a Redken salon please visit Redken online.

Is Your Boxed Hair Dye Causing Hair Loss? The Experts Weigh In

It’s a fact that we love to color our hair -- whether to cover up grays or just make a change in the hue of our luscious locks. What many women don’t know, however, is that their boxed hair dye may be contributing to hair thinning and loss. Damage and allergy are the top two causes of hair loss from the use of hair color, and it’s more prevalent than you think. Over 40% of women experience visible hair loss by the time they’re 40, yet this topic isn’t widely discussed.

In honor of National Hair Loss Awareness Month in August, we wanted to share some tips and tricks from Dermatologist Dr. Joyce Davis on how to prevent hair loss when coloring your hair, and treating any thinning you’ve already experienced. Dr. Davis shares the following tips and information about the subject that none of us want to talk about.

Know the Difference Between Shedding and Hair Loss: Most of us lose somewhere between 50-150 strands of hair every day, but a normal, healthy scalp will simply produce more hair to replace that loss. When actual hair thinning is occurring, most women will notice an all-around overall thinning of the hair, as opposed to bald spots. Keep tabs on how much hair you’re losing in your brush, in the shower, etc. to determine if your shedding is cause for concern.

Minimize the Damage When Coloring: The chemicals in your hair dye may cause your hair shaft to weaken and break off. If you are experiencing hair loss after you have color treated your hair it is most likely due to damage to the hair shaft. To minimize the chance of such damage, use dye within three shades of your natural hair color, as the process will be less harsh. Also look for products that contain deep conditioners that will help counteract the drying chemicals. Clairol’s Nice’n Easy takes this a step further and added Damage-Blocking Technology into their dye to further minimize damage.

It’s all About the Timing: It’s best to wait at least 6 weeks in between colorings to allow the scalp and roots to heal completely from the irritation caused by coloring. If you are using a home coloring product, you may want to consult a stylist to see what can be done to avoid further damage and potential temporary hair loss.

Be Careful of Adverse Side Effects: While rare, there is a chance that if you’re losing hair after coloring that you’re allergic to the dye. Typically, hair dyes contain known allergens PTD and PPD, which can cause severe allergic reactions in some people. I always suggest using Clairol’s Nice’n Easy for dying your hair at home, as it replaced these allergens with a new molecule called ME+ that reduces the risk in developing an allergy. Patients can use it without worrying about harming the scalp and worsening hair loss due to an allergic reaction. Of course, always do a patch test prior to dying to ensure you don’t react, as allergies can still develop!

Gray Hair Cure With TouchBack Marker

Did you know that there is a specific gene that leads to gray hair? It's called the IRF4 gene and scientists are hoping this new study will help in finding ways to delay the graying process. In the meantime, if you’re struggling to conceal those pesky gray hairs TouchBack Marker maybe the best product for you.

TouchBack Marker ($29.95 – Available in 8 Shades) How It Works: TouchBack actually bonds to the hair, blending seamlessly with permanent hair color for a totally natural look. Unlike hair mascaras, crayons, gels and powders, which dull the hair and flake off. TouchBack's patented formula uses temporary hair colors, but without harsh chemicals -- no ammonia or peroxide -- so, it's gentle on your hair. TouchBack's marker delivers the perfect amount of color … continuously. The Fiber Flow applicator applies real temporary hair color to gray roots. It dries in about one minute and won't flake or rub off … even after brushing. TouchBack does not flake or rub off because it bonds to the hair. It is real temporary hair color!

Shades – Rich Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Light Brown, Golden Blonde, Ash Blonde, Dark Auburn, and Light Auburn. TouchBack Marker is available at Ulta Beauty.

New Redken Haircolor Technique

“Beauty as a form of art” has been taken to new heights this week thanks to Redken colorist Chiala Marvici who has created a mesmerizing new haircolor technique – hand-pressed coloring – that is sure to take the streets by storm this fall.

Inspired by a painting in her apartment, the New York City-based colorist describes the new haircolor technique as screen printing for the hair, ultimately creating unique colors and patterns on the hair itself using none other than glass. Check out Chiala's technique

According to Chiala, hand-pressed coloring begins by creating a design of different patterns (circles, diagonals and swirls) and different shades of Redken color on a 6-inch-wide sheet of very hard plexiglass. A section of hair is then placed flat onto the glass, which directly transfers the design from the plexiglass to the underside of the hair. Using a long putty knife, the hair is pressed into the pattern to saturate the top side of the hair as the color seeps through the strands. To repeat the pattern, the color and pattern is reapplied to the glass and placed onto the next section of hair. With processing time only lasting between 30-45 minutes, the technique is a quick and sure-fire way to grab attention this season!

“The technique is a fast way to create cool effects on the hair and gives the colorist options to create effects on the hair in less time than traditional applications!” says Redken colorist and creator of the hand-pressed coloring technique, Chiala Marvici.

Haircolor Trends For Fall and Winter 2015 with Tracey Cunningham

Celebrity haircolor trends are being reimagined for the Fall/Winter 2015 season with new takes on old favorites. As the weather turns cooler, haircolor grows warmer with trends like sombre and Babylights amplifying the natural color on blondes, brunettes and redheads alike. Redken Celebrity Colorist Tracey Cunningham shares the inside scoop on the trends she is using on her own celebrity clients this season to help guide you when talking to your colorist at your next salon appointment.

Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #1: Sombre

“Low-maintenance color has been a popular trend recently and has now been expanded with sombre, a much more subtle and blended take on ombre. Sombre is a softer, more wearable look that is flatting on everyone, even those with darker hair like Jessica Biel. Redken’s NEW Chromatics Mocha shades help to create a rich base color that can be toned and refreshed with the NEW Shades EQ Gloss natural warm shades like Milk Tea and Cream Soda.”

 Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #2: Babylights

“The popularity of the Spring/Summer Babylights trend has gained momentum, especially with brunette clients who are realizing that highlights are not just for blondes. Natural, untouched hair is always lighter around the hairline, which is essentially the Babylights technique. By softening the hairline with Blonde Idol Blue Oil Lightening System oil lightener from the Professional Haircolor Collection, clients with darker haircolor like Lily Aldridge can easily transition their summer-highlighted hair to something more natural that complements fall colors.”

 Fall/Winter 2015 Trend #3: Lightened Red

“Redheads are embracing a softer color this fall, with vibrant reds like Emma Stone adding subtle blonde highlights to create an understated contrast. To create the blonde dimension while toning and refreshing Emma’s hair, Redken Shades EQ is my go-to for creating this universally flattering look.”

At your next salon appointment, leave the chair looking and feeling like a celebrity by asking your colorist about Tracey’s trends. To continue to protect your haircolor after your service, Tracey recommends using Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate-Free Haircare or Blonde Idol Haircare to seal in color and deliver maximum vibrancy and shine. Visit Redken to find a salon, book your next appointment or buy genuine Redken products.

Pretty in Pink Hair Trend Alert

We’ve seen it everywhere … Hilary Duff went pink, Julianne Hough went pink and even Cara went pink (if just for a day). It’s officially a trend! Pink hair is everywhere, from cool celebs to It Girls alike. We aren’t talking about hot pink, 90’s Gwen Stefani style, but a softer, pastel shade that is just soooo pretty. “How do I get it,” you ask? Believe it or not, it’s easier than you think and Team TME turned to Cutler Senior Colorist and pastel hair extraordinaire, Rachel Bodt, gives us her take on why this color is so popular and how to achieve it.

THE COLOR: For the same reason rose blush is a makeup staple, pink hair is universally flattering on all skin tones and shades. The dusty, pastel tones we are seeing recently “look prettier, more romantic while still edgy and uber cool,” says Bodt. Finding the right tone for you is key to rocking the look. Anything from a soft pink hue to a deep, rich rose tone may work.

GIVE IT A TRY: You can try this look at home with hair chalk for a little taste of what it will look like. For a more realistic at-home trial, use a color depositing conditioner, like Davines Alchemic Conditioner in Red, to temporarily dye your strands pink. It washes out in 5 to 6 washes, but will give you the most realistic taste of what you’ll look like with pink hair.

Pro Tip: To avoid hot pink locks, remember that little goes a long way.

SEE A PROFESSIONAL: Bodt says, "There are a few ways to do this. Either by doing a full double process, where you bleach the whole head to white and then tone with pastels. Or you can do heavily highlights and then gloss with a pink tone.” The highlight process will give you a similar look, but is less of a commitment so going back to a natural color is easier.

HOW TO KEEP IT UP: Direct dyes wash out every time you shampoo, so you will have to do some extra maintenance to keep your color bright. According to Bodt, “Use a cleansing conditioner, which is free of sulfates. This won’t scrub out the color. Also ask your colorist to make you a color conditioner you can use once a week to keep it looking fresh.”

Fall 2014 Hair Color Trends with Celebrity Colorist Marco Pelusi

It may be difficult to think of fall while we’re all enjoying the gorgeous summer weather, most especially this past week when the weather seems as if it was order off of the “perfect summer weather” menu. But, soon enough we will be surrendering our breezy dresses and now’s the time to look ahead and checkout the forecast for the perfect hues for our lovely tresses. Who better to check in with then world-renowned celebrity colorist, Marco Pelusi of Marco Pelusi Hair Studio in West Hollywood? Which is precisely what I did!

In a TME exclusive, Marco offers readers the hottest trends and amazing hair colors for Fall 2014. Aside from being the “Master of Color,” Marco truly believes in making women feel beautiful and this is why The Makeup Examiner went straight to Marco for his expert opinion. Read on to find out what hues work for blondes, brunettes and redheads, as well as expert color care advice for the cooler months.

Yvonne: I’d read somewhere that Platinum Blonde and Metallics are the hot trends for Fall 2014. What do you think of this?

Marco: I definitely think that platinum blonde is making a comeback these days. The cycle fashion tells us that a trend [begins] as avant-garde, moves into fashionable, goes mainstream and then ends as outdated. And, goes back around to avant-garde. This has happened with the platinum blonde. It was almost been seen as outdated for a while, but I think it's been creeping in. Meryl Streep sort of hinted at it a few years back in “The Devil Wears Prada” -- when she wore her solid light hair -- and at that time, platinum blonde was still outdated but moving toward avant-garde. As with all trends, it takes a few years [to become mainstream], and now we are seeing more all-over blondes. So, yes to the all-over platinum blonde! Metallics I'm not so sure about.

For several seasons ombre has ruled as THE hair color trend and I really thought that the trend would finally go away. But with mega-stars like Jared Leto, quite literally rockin’ this look, and Jessica Biel sporting soft ombre locks, is it still a hot trend? What are you seeing as on-trend for Fall 2014? 

Marco: We are still feeling the bleeding in of the "sombre" … or, that is, the softer, summer/fall ombre. I had a strong feeling this trend would stick with us in its various forms, as it takes on a new feel, as time moves forward. This trend moves more into the ends being slightly sun kissed or tipped with a gradually lighter color -- this differs greatly from the previous strong line of demarcation from the old ombre -- where the hair literally went from black to blonde. This is a much softer progression, and in my opinion, is quite beautiful, and definitely feels on-trend throughout the fall. 

Who’s wearing the sombre look right now? 

Marco: My dear friend and client Carol Alt has a version of this look, more or less, right now. Her ends gradually, beautifully lighten up as you see her darker hair progress throughout. Additionally, I have to admit, I'm a huge Bravo fan. I'm acquainted with many people involved with the shows, and right now, Carole Radziwill of “The Real Housewives of New York” is definitely wearing a sombre.  Her hair beautifully starts out darker and bleeds into light, with gradual transition.

With many projects together, I know that you love your redheads and you are hands-down THE color expert. What about blondes and brunettes? What are the on-trend hues that will transition from summer into the cooler months?  

Marco: Yes I happen to love reds -- also red coloring is perhaps the most challenging for stylists/colorists to achieve -- that is, to capture a really, really good red -- and therefore my voice is quite specific in this area. However, I do create my own blonding/highlighting techniques. I’ve just returned from my annual presentations at the International Beauty Shows in Vegas, where I demonstrated this technique to hundreds of professional hairstylists. (Readers, Marco truly is a master at color and offers instructional DVDs on his world-renowned technique) The blondes who are on-trend will gradually add more lowlights -- deeper, richer, darker tones throughout their blonde hair -- to reflect the change in seasons. The brunettes can consider adding deeper and warmer tones -- again to reflect the change not only in the season, but the fall colors of the leaves, and everything around us. Brunettes can add a touch of deep gold’s and hints of reds/auburns; and moving into winter we can begin moving into cooler and darker browns.

You’ve taught us that color care is so important. Are there different steps to take during the cooler months to maintain our color? 

Marco: Indoor heat is always a culprit for drying hair as the fall is upon us. It's time for deep conditioning treatments. Nourish the hair as much as possible. Find a deep conditioning formula that works for you. Shampoo your hair, rinse, squeeze the moisture from your hair, towel blot, and apply the deep conditioner. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes, preferably in a warmer or steamier area. Then rinse. Additionally, when the weather turns colder, and our indoor heat goes up, applying a leave-in conditioner can become your friend!

Okay my lovelies, there you have it from the color God himself. Sombre will continue to be a very on-trend look for Fall/Winter 2014-15. Going platinum blonde is very in vogue and brunettes should embrace the natural colors of fall. Color care is vital for keeping those locks looking lovely and Marco has created a line of cruelty-free hair care products especially for colored treated hair, which you can check out by visiting Marco Pelusi Studios. The product that I can’t do without is Marco Anti-Frizz Leave-In Conditioner with Collagen Color Guard, as it’s not only the perfect product to feign off the environmental conditions that cause our hair to go bonkers in the cooler months, but also the best leave-in for year-round! You can keep up-to-date with Marco on Twitter and Facebook!
