Gold and other warm tones in Hair Color

 It’s a very exciting time for Hair Color. Really anything goes!

For many of the years that I have been creating Hair Color, gold and warm tones were                           the challenge, clients considered these tones the enemy and would go to great lengths to eradicate them. Myself personally, I was always attracted to the gold in the hair color as it is very much apart of a well balanced hair color and used by design can provided a certain “sparkle”to the over all effect of the color canvas, which in turn enhances the complexion and over all facial appearance. In any case the client prevailed and Hairdressers pursued many avenues to loose any trace of gold gone.  Products to achieve this mission were continually arriving on the scene to help balance the hair color and not have gold be the paramount color to distinguish the end result of the hair color design.

   During the 1970’s Sebastian International was always on the leading edge with innovative hair products and education and at the same time was blazing a new trail  with hair color, I was most fortunate to be on their Artistic Team and headed the Hair Color division of that Team. An even greater gift was given me, I was asked to develop “Crystal” a new Cellophane.  I was sent to Sun Labs to work in Yorm Fishman’s Lab. Today that hair color, Crystal, still lives, and goes by the name of Pearl in the Cellophane line.                                                                                                                                                               Fast forward today a more  educated Hairdresser as well as client have and desire a wide range of Hair Color that is desirable in the fashion world, from cool icy blondes, that can provide a brightness to your look, to gold, copper, bronzes and reds which can reflect color into the complexion, to medium to dark cool raven browns that can calm down unwanted warmth in the skin.                             

   The Hair Color world today is so very exciting, there are no parameters.
