The main types of color change curls

In hairdressing and coloring, it is customary to distinguish between the following methods or types of hair coloring:

  1. Coloring – small strands are dyed in a shade or shades different from the main color. It looks beautiful on dark hair (for example, the main color is chestnut, and the strands are colored red and / or fiery red). As a result of coloring, the hairstyle acquires an unusual look, a beautiful overflow, becomes more expressive, and a woman with such hair looks attractive and spectacular.
  2. Toning is a standard procedure for uniformly coloring the entire hairstyle with one color. When using chemical dyes, the color lasts for a long time, and when using special gentle tonics, the result lasts until the first shampoo, but during pregnancy you can safely use it.
  3. Highlighting – hair coloring in this case involves the application of an activator to individual strands in order to bleach, that is, to remove the coloring pigment, melanin, from the hairs. Then, a “blond” color dye of various shades is applied to the bleached curls. As a result, the hair gives off glare, playing in different tones in an original way. Looks great on both long and short hairstyles.
  4. Ellumination – therapeutic soft hair coloring with special dyes without hydrogen peroxide and pH neutral. That is, each hair is covered with a kind of colorless film. The purpose of this type of hair coloring is to preserve the natural shade of the hairstyle and its health. The activator consists of safe components that seal the porous structure, which visually smooth out the curls.
  5. Lightening – this rather complicated procedure can turn a burning brunette into a gentle blonde. The transition from dark to light hair color takes a lot of time and requires the skill of the master. To do this, before dyeing, the master uses a special activator or hydrogen peroxide to burn out the natural dark color, then the hair is dyed every two weeks until the desired uniform blond appears. It is strictly prohibited during pregnancy.

At home, without special skills, it is impossible to achieve the desired effect, except for the toning procedure. Therefore, to give your image new colors, it is better to contact the salon for the help of professionals.

What are the staining techniques?

Almost every mass master class or hairdressing competition demonstrates the latest hair coloring techniques. Standard classic toning can no longer surprise anyone, and the masters invent new ways to give the hairstyle original shades.

Hair coloring today is possible in the following basic techniques:

  1. Ombre (including Balayazh, Shatush, Sombre, Degrade) – gives the hair an unusual look and freshness by lightening with a special activator or dyeing only the ends of the hair in a variety of colors and shades. This technique in its various manifestations is perfect for owners of light and dark strands, short and long curls. For lovers of creativity, this is an ideal technique, since the color of the ends of the hair can be radically different from the main shade.
  2. 3D coloring – giving a truly royal style, beauty and volume to the hair, which consists in using several adjacent shades of color. The main feature of the three-dimensional painting technology is the system for applying the coloring pigment, when one base and two or three additional shades are applied. The advantage of this technology is the natural look of the hairstyle and the visual effect of its volume.
  3. Root coloring is a very necessary procedure, especially after classic one-color painting or after blonding. After two to three weeks after dyeing the hair, the regrown roots are very noticeable and require dyeing. Another reason for coloring the roots is to create color transitions along the entire length of the hairstyle to give originality to the image.
  4. Hair coloring with crayons is an original way of painting strands in various bright colors. Special coloring crayons (dry pastel) allow you to create a smooth color transition over the entire length or highlight individual strands with one or more bright shades. It does not apply to short curls, but the activator is applied with ease to dark and fair hair. It is quickly washed off, but dries out the hair, can be used during pregnancy.
  5. Screen coloring (futuage) – drawing a pattern on the hair using a template. Very unusual and rare technique. Suitable only for women with thick, not short hair. The complex painting process requires precise technological compliance and accuracy in applying paints. Able to perform only masters of aerobatics. Ideal for creating a bright, extravagant and outrageous image.
  6. Pixelated hair is the latest trend in pixelated hair style, reminiscent of a pixelated image or Tetris figures. The technique involves applying to the main color (preferably dark tones and short geometric haircuts) contrasting thin layers of paint of similar shades on separate strands with a slight indent from each other so that peculiar squares – pixels are obtained. Suitable for girls with thick straight hair.

Any of these coloring techniques will make your image unforgettable, provided that the coloring is done correctly and with high-quality paints.

How to paint over gray hair?
