Hair color 101

Mass Appeal

When you are getting ready for a hair salon appointment, you see photos of looks you want to recreate, but have NO idea how to describe them to your stylist, until now! Michaela Murray, Co-owner of Wicked Salon walked through some of the different hair color techniques to make your next trip to the salon a stress-free experience!

Balayage: a hair painting technique that mimics the look of childhood hair, with lighter color on the ends, and a more natural root at the top. This is the best technique for someone who doesn’t want to maintain and upkeep their highlights.

Foil: a more precise highlighting technique used to achieve a brighter overall look.

Root touch-up: touching up the color only at the roots.

Single Process Color: an all-over color to change the color of your entire head of hair.
