Make an easy transition into your natural gray
At Limelight Deals we have many great deals at area salons. Why? Because ladies love to change up their look!
There are many reasons women get their hair done at a salon or go in for a big style change. Sometimes you just get bored with the same old hairdo or need a boost in confidence.
Maybe you just went through a breakup and want to get back out there and find Mr. Right. Again. If you’re on the job market, it’s time to spruce up and reinvent yourself with a modern look. When we hit a big milestone birthday–50?? Really??–a change is in order. Weddings are a good time to get a new hair style and speaking of the big birthdays–where did all that gray come from all of a sudden!
Nowadays the trend is to just let those grays be and get a great hair style that will show off what nature is handing to you beautifully and gracefully. So how do you make that transition?
Highlights and Lowlights.
Adding highlights to your hair is a great way to transition into your gray. When highlights are added, both the gray and colored areas of your hair will be lightened which helps to blend the two shades together. Gray hair can wash out skin because of the dull, cool undertones, so adding highlights will give your hair and skin a brighter appearance.
Lowlights are like highlights, but instead of lightening your hair, the stylist will use a darker shade closer to your natural color to help break up the blocks of gray by blending them in with your natural hair color.
Hair that’s losing its color is susceptible to a whole new host of problems (like frizz, wiriness, and yellowing) that you may never have experienced before so be sure to condition regularly.
If your hair has uneven gray patches, consider a snappy salt-and-pepper look. Even out your color and make your gray appear well blended, which can be difficult since it tends to grow in random clusters. To turn these patches into chic streaks use strategic highlights.
If your hair is currently dyed, try going gray allover. One of the major benefits of stopping is that there’ll be no more wrestling with roots. Make a more gradual change.Switch to semipermanent color for this transition.
