Beat winter Blues Violet.
Put some color therapy to work and bring some vibrancy into your life and locks. Nothing like a little change to lift the spirits. 😉 It can be fun and the great thing is these hair colors fade pretty well making it a nice change to dull everyday hair color.
We love violets right now. They are rich and fun but still pretty approachable. Whenever people want to add a fun color to their hair, purples and violets are always a good choice. From rosy lilacs – deep burgundy wines – crushed grape. Shocking to demure. Deep as you dare. Ask one of our color experts which hue is right for YOU. <3
Want even more daring? Go Ultra violet balayage hair color that is daring and super fun.
Brighter still? Here is a great picture of a really purple hair color that rocks! Notice how it is still dimensional with it being darker at the roots and lighter at the ends with some of the dark hair color still incorporated through the ends of the hair.
Come in to Studio 229 today and stay warm and bright and beat those winter blues with a perfect new hair color for a perfect new you. Happy New year!!!

Pastel hair: studio 229 is all the rage. We are full swing into Spring/Summer here in sunny Seattle and so is the pastel hair craze that has been gracing the streets all over the nation.
Pastel hair color is a feminine and fun way to add color to your hair. Anyone can wear it, the trick is to first lighten the hair to the palest blonde possible. That is where a hair care professional is key. Lightening the hair to this stage can be very damaging – it is important to take care to achieve even results without breakage.The aftercare is also important, our color experts at Studio 229 can guide you on the care of your hair after this multi-step process.
There are many ways to apply the color and shades of pastels to choose from. Through advanced placement techniques, our hair color experts can give you the perfect fairy sprinkling of lovely tones that will give dimension, really giving it that special look.
We also love dip dye techniques or ombre for these pretty in pink (or blue!) shades.
All over color (one shade) also looks great if you just want to go for one solid shade. Even application is key and we will give you tips on home touch ups and making the most of your new hair color!

DO: The “Hipness factor”:It’s about the hair, the makeup, clothing and the personality working together to create a harmonious look.
DO: Choose hair colors based on the season. For fall, experiment with reds, oranges and yellows. For spring try pinks, blues, and greens. Go a little darker in the winter.
DON’T: Overdo it. Pick one or two colors at most 3 three.
