Hair Color for Baby Boomers!
By Christine Gonsalves
Salon clients are becoming a bit older as the American population ages. Do you realize that the last “Boomers” will turn 50 in 2014?
Understanding the unique tactics, trends, and techniques to accomplish beautiful and healthy hair color for “Boomers” has become more and more important.
Beautiful, shiny, natural, and /or accents of vibrant shades of hair, can be worn at any stage of the game.
Depending on the individual’s style and image desired, the shape and color of their hair, can reflect their personality and enhance class, while still having a feel of sass.
A blend of the two looks, “classy and sassy”, can create a youthful feel, as well as maintaining a feel, of elegance and sophistication.
For example….Picture a rich velvety mocha hair color, accented with creamy café au lait shades, with a touch of luminous, gold spun pops of brilliance….JUST FANTASTIC!
This will give the effect of creating beautiful depth and eye-catching details, while still having a soft balance, that accentuates a person’s best features and natural beauty.
Very seldom, does a woman come in, and ask to look her age!
It does happen occasionally, however in most cases, women would prefer to look a bit more youthful, yet, still maintain a professional image.
It is important for hair colorists and stylists, to stay cognizant, of the new trends, and think outside the box, with ideas, of how to unite current looks, into wearable, softer effects, that the average woman can be comfortable with and proud to wear.
Chrissy’s always has been, and will continue to be, the leader, in this kind of thinking!
We at Chrissy’s feel, that offering creative suggestions, to keep your image fun and exciting, is imperative, so that you do not get bored, and start to feel frumpy, or discontented with your look.
Did you know, that hair color, is the single, most important factor, effecting a person’s overall appearance.
In fact, studies have shown that your hair color, has a bigger impact on a person’s first impression of you, than even your clothing or personality.
Researchers agree that the balance between eye color, hair color, and skin tone is more important to a person’s image than even their weight or posture.
Intuitively, this makes perfect sense, considering that hair, is one of the first things a person notices, about another person.
So, what is the magic formula?
The answer is, it depends.
Selecting your perfect hair color depends not only on your skin tone and eye color; but also on your personal style and self image, and what type of profession one is in.
The skin’s complexion, will either fall under a warm, or cool skin tone.
- Generally those who exhibit a warm skin tone will have a natural hair color, that shows reddish or golden undertones, deep browns, and golden blondes.
They also may have eyes that are hazel, green-blue, golden brown, or amber with brown specks.
The skin color will have golden undertones, or have a peachy glow.
- Clients that posses a cool tone to their skin may have hair that is naturally a bluish-black, an ashy blonde, or a dark brown that does not exhibit warm undertones.
Their eye color may be steel grey, gray-blue, hazel with lighter specks, or deep brown eyes.
The skin color of these clients may have a bluish tone under the eye, or reddish-pinks.
At times these clients will have little to no color in their cheeks.
But remember, skin tone, is just one of many factors, that must be taken into consideration, before coloring your hair.
OOooops, as usual, I’m almost out of room, so I hope you stay healthy and prosperous, but mostly healthy, and I’ll see you next month, and remember,
