Block Hair Coloring (priced upon consultation)
Block Coloring – Also referred to as panelling, adding color to just a portion of the hair like the bangs or an unexpected steak peeking out from underneath a layer. This coloring trend can be done with bright, bold colors or with more natural tones. Very dynamic and adds an interesting dimension to the overall hairstyle.
What Is Block Hair Coloring?
The term “block hair coloring” refers to the use of two different shades to color hair in very large sections. Although the results are often dramatic, they can also be quite subtle when the right colors are selected by your stylist. Many salons – and their guests – love the technique because it is so incredibly versatile. For instance, it takes less time than foil coloring, but it can provide the same results in some cases. What’s more, because the stylist can put the contrasting color below the part, no one will ever see the regrowth. There is only one processing time for both colors, so it is a great way to add dimension while you cover gray.
The process behind block coloring is simple enough. First, the guest must determine whether he or she wants natural results or something more dramatic. For natural results, the chosen colors complement each other and blend. For dramatic looks, the colors contrast one another and truly stand out. The stylist will mix two separate formulas and apply them to the client’s hair in very large sections. There are several ways to apply the color to create different looks, with the contrast color underneath the most popular method for most clients.
The aftercare associated with block hair coloring involves protecting the new pigment and preventing un-necessary dryness. Shampoos and conditioners designed specifically for color-treated hair are best; look for products that contain low sulfates – or even none at all – for the longest-lasting color. Find serums and products that contain natural oils and even keratin to help seal in moisture and shine, and further protect your new look. The length of time between root touch-ups varies based on the exact process used.
