Balayage

A highlighting technique in which the color is hand painted onto the hair with a gentle sweeping motion giving a sun-kissed natural look and allows for softer less noticeable regrowth line. This process is different than the average lightening technique because by painting the color directly onto the hair,  usually applied free hand throughout onto the ends of hair directly where the colorist sees fit. The use of various shades a natural and unique  color is achieved. Balayage creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with a sun-kissed finish. Often using color that is present in the hair, foils are used for more control.   

Black Color

Color created if all three primary colors are mixed in even amounts. 

Brown Colors

Color created if all three primary colors are mixed in uneven amounts.


Brown Pigment

Pigment that often lightens within a few minutes after the lightener is applied. Because the pigment is much larger in the hair of ethnic people, it usually lightens to a red-gol very quickly which makes it hard to lighten the hair any further than night.


Complementary Colors

Color created when two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are mixed to create a neutral brown shade.  


Depth of Color

​This shows how dark or light a color actually is. The more white that is added the lighter a color becomes.


Melanin

The dark brown or black substance found in skin and hair. It is the natural part of peoples' eyes.


Ombre

Ombre is where your hair color will fade from darker roots to gradually get lighter at the ends (or vice-versa). This gradual change in hair color from root to end generally moves within the same color family. An ombre can be either subtle or bold depending on the colors used it can be quite an obvious gradient, or a more natural effect. The ombre fade effect will normally be on half to two-thirds of the hair, and be in a fairly straight line across the hair. 


One Step Color

The hair is lifted and color is deposited in one easy step. Single Process means that a new color or toner is applied all over to create a new base color. It's the most common process and it's great for covering grays and adding shininess to dull hair. One step color means no highlights, lowlights or bleaching just normal color. This is good when you are looking to either darken or lighten your hair by 2-3 shades.


Primary Colors

The three basic colors: Red, Yellow and Blue.

​Red Pigment

This pigment is usually present in the cortex of the hair. This pigment must be damaged to acquire lighter tones which in return can damage the hair.

Secondary Colors

Color that are created by combining two primary color. EX: Yellow and Blue create Green.


​Tertiary Colors

Color that is created when a primary color and a secondary color next to it on the color wheel are mixed. EX: Blue and Green make Blue-Green.



​Tone of Color

The mixture of color pigments in one’s hair created by color cells found in the cortex layer of the hair that determine how light or dark the hair will be.



​Yellow Pigment

Although this pigment presents little difficulties, it could lift unevenly causing streaks. Applying the right lightener is crucial for the best results.
