Which Brand of Color Does Ian Use?
Ask twelve stylists to name the “best brand of hair color” and you will likely get twelve different answers.
I use many different brands of color depending on the clients hair. Often I receive calls and am asked this question. The client asking this question does so because she has had either a good or bad experience with a certain color line and thinks it’s all about the brand.
She’s wrong. It’s all about the colorist knowing how to formulate color. I’ve seen colorists who don’t know how to properly formulate get terrible results with excellent color and I’ve seen a knowledgable colorist get amazing results with inexpensive color I would never touch.
Ian uses a variety of brands including Aloxxi Chroma, Tressa, Wella, Pravana, and Redken - just to name a few. Every clients hair is different and the integrity of the hair - the health- must be respected and maintained.
Ian has no brand loyalty, only loyalty to his clients.
Does My Color Fade?
No, my color does not fade any more than natural hair color. The Steam processing drives it in so deep without damaging the cuticle, all the way into the root.
That said, clients often come in with severely damaged hair from which any color will fade. To understand this better please read my blog on Healthy Hair -The Cuticle.
Also every once in a while a client calls and says, “My color faded.” Upon examination it always turns out that she’s referring to her regrowth. I can’t stop your hair from growing. If you have very white roots they may show in as little as three weeks. Most of my color clients come in every 4 to 6 weeks.
