Embrace winter rich hair color. Rich hair color helps everyone embrace winter blues. With Winter upon us here in “sunny” Seattle we at Studio 229 Hair Salon believe it’s important to stay in great spirits this holiday season and the sometimes gloomy months to come any way you can. With our lack of sun, it is easy to feel a little blah. A great way to fight off those winter blues and update your look is with a richer or deeper hair color. A lot of people like to go darker for the winter but don’t know a good way to do it in a low commitment way. We are here to help.
Two great ways to go deeper for the season are low-lights (reverse highlighting) or a semi-permanent glaze.
Low-lighting is a foiling process done by weaving a deeper or richer hair color through the hair. This is sometimes referred to as reverse highlighting because instead of foiling with a lighter color we are depositing (not lifting) color for a darker tone. This creates shadows and dimension in the hair giving depth. You can use warm or cool colors depending on your preference.
Another great way to add depth to your hair for winter is with a glaze. A glaze is a sheer, semi-permanent color applied all over the hair. At Studio 229 we use Redken Shades EQ for this process. It’s a great color that conditions and adds incredible shine. Being a semi-permanent hair color, it will fade gradually without leaving a harsh line at the roots during grow-out. It is also ammonia free and non-damaging. It is best to stay a only a few shades darker for a natural look.

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
