Rules and tricks of hair coloring - recommendations for colorists

Coloring is a hair care procedure and has its own details. The Basic Hairdressing Course will help you master the various nuances that will help you later in your profession. During the training, students will learn how to pick up dyes and achieve an equal shade.

Basic rules of coloring

How uniform and rich the color looks depends not only on the ink but also on the professionalism of the master. Knowledge of a few simple rules will help to make everything high quality and neat.

Great value is given to the original hair color:

  1. Dark. Stylists advise brown hair and brunettes to choose tones close to natural, at least a bit lighter or darker. In this case, the hair will become more natural and fresh. Radical changes, such as lightening to blonde or chatouche, require experience and qualification.
  2. Bright. For blondes, the rule also remains that the most suitable are the tones that are close to their color. A drastic change in hairstyle is likely to require more than one coloring.

All of this needs to be considered when choosing a style for your clients.

How to choose the right dye?

There are two types of dyes. The household can be used independently at home, but the professional ones are used in beauty salons. To get the result, you need skills in the professional field.

The main component of dyes is ammonia. The classification looks like this:

  • permanent;
  • non-ammoniacal.

The next thing you should pay attention to is the numbers on the package. They indicate the color. Each company has its own marking, which is followed by an explanation. If there are several numbers on the box, the first ones likely mean tone:

  • black;
  • white;
  • brown;
  • blonde.

Next comes a palette of shades, for example:

  • ash;
  • pearlescent;
  • copper;
  • gold;
  • red;
  • metallized;
  • mocha.

By durability and consistency, paints are qualified as temporary and super-resistant. Toning is often done for a short time. Products such as mousses are well suited for this purpose. Their structure reminds foam. They are also good for dyeing the roots or individual strands.

The required tools and means for hair coloring

For high-quality coloring, besides dye, the master must have the following tools:

  • сonditioner, serves to fix the color, and for professional dyes, usually sold separately;
  • protective gloves;
  • disposable cape to protect clothing
  • сotton pads for removing the residual dye;
  • comb;
  • small hairpins;
  • foil or thermal paper, it helps to work on individual strands;
  • spatula.

This is enough to carry out the coloring.

How to dye hair evenly - tips from the experts

If you are going to color your hair, it is better to postpone the procedure of washing the head. The fact is that freshly washed strands are highly disintegrated. All hair should be divided by a parting and then dye, starting from the roots. First the area around the face, and then the back of the head and the length. It all depends on whether you are doing a full coloring or just the roots. To restore the color, all you need to do is thoroughly dye the roots and apply the remaining dye to the rest of your hair with simple massaging motions. If the color is washed out, the process starts with the roots, too. And further on the entire length from the face to the back of the head.

How to fix the color?

How long your new hair color will stay bright and beautiful depends directly on what care products you use. To fix the color, you need to stick to the following recommendations:

  • after dyeing, you should not wash your hair for 3-4 days, so that the dye can be absorbed better;
  • wash hair with professional shampoo, developed for colored hair;
  • do not forget about the conditioner, it not only makes the color more saturated but also nourishes it.

You can also use non-washing products in the form of a spray or cream.

Hair care after the coloring procedure

In addition to basic care, you need to pick up additional protection from ultraviolet rays, high temperatures, and tap water. These can be oils, sprays, and masks.
