Sophisticate’s Blog:         Color Cues


Screen shot 2013-07-18 at 9.54.37 AMFrom Cameron Diaz’s platinum-blonde strands to Jennifer Lopez’s caramel-hued highlights, there are so many gorgeous hair colors to choose from—and now’s the perfect time to give your mane a chic makeover! But, before you take the plunge, there are some dirty deets you’ll need to know. Here, stylist to the stars Danny Jelaca shares his tips on how to avoid common color mistakes…

Don’t go from too light to too dark without filling in the hair pigment first. Filler is used to replace previously lifted hair pigment and allows hair to match your desired color. Then, Danny tells us to “always use semi- or demi- permanent hair color when going dark.” Demi-permanent hair color is ammonia and peroxide-free, unlike permanent color. This means that it will cover the lighter hair completely, but it will only last 4-6 weeks until you need a touch-up.

Don’t over-process the color. This means you don’t want to overlap one color onto another. “Hair that has permanent color is sensitized, and overlapping ammonia and peroxide is what causes damage,” Danny tells us. So once you chose a color, stick with it for a few months. Celebs like Lindsey Lohan who change from brunette to blonde to red inflict a lot of damage on their strands that will take years to mend. Danny suggests switching up highlights and lowlights to change the look without touching the all-over color.
