Still Shots from Hair by Misty

Long, wavy hair is always a great summer look and has been very popular so far this year. By adding highlights, we can add even more dimension and style to your haircut.

Go for a lot of contrast or sombre for a more natural sun kissed look.

Color Gloss: Revitalize, Tone & Change It Up!

Shades EQ Color Gloss

333316-shadeseq2

This quick versatile service can change or enhance your look without compromising your hair and without long-term commitment.

 

1. Revitalize

redken-blonde-idol-yanay-2

 Is your hair looking dull and faded? Then a color gloss is just what you need! All it takes is 20 minutes for Redken’s Shades EQ semi-permanent color to restore shine and vibrancy to your hair color. Do you like your current color but it’s just lacking shine? No problem, you have the option of a clear gloss which can help your color last longer and create dazzling shine.

For my clients who come in every 6 weeks to do a root touch up, I always refresh their ends with a color gloss so the color on the ends look just as new and vibrant as the fresh color at their roots.

2. Tone

_media-uploads-Redken_Blonde_Idol_Jessica_Secondary_CMYK_300DPI_Small_3-380x312-011315

Has your blonde turned a little too yellow or are your highlights looking a little brassy? Not only does Shades EQ offer vibrant colors to refresh but they also offer delicate, light colors to tone blondes while conditioning at the same time!

Are you blonde but not crazy about the tone your hair is or want to try a different shade of blonde? Maybe you’ve always wanted to try strawberry blonde, or you want to be a cooler or even silvery blonde? The results are endless because your colorist can create custom tones just for you!

Another problem I have encountered behind the chair is someone who comes in who is entirely TOO blonde. I’m talking overly lightened almost white highlights. This can make your hair look dull, drab and honestly….DEAD. So to add some life back into her hair a delicate gold gloss came to her rescue. A lot of people are afraid of gold tones, but yellow reflects light better than any other hue. You just need the right gold.

3. Quick Change

If you’re craving a change but worried about the commitment of permanent color, a color gloss is the answer. Semi-permanent color gives you vibrant and lustrous results that gradually fade over time. You will not be left with an obvious grow-out line and if you decide to go with a different color next time it will not cause any issues for your colorist.

If grays are your issues but you’re not trying to go the route of permanent color, a color gloss can help blend the grays to make them less obvious. However, if full gray coverage is what you are seeking this service is not for you.

4. Modern Trends

Redken’s Shades EQ color gloss is capable of so much including creating beautiful works of hair art! Some of the latest color trends involve blurring colors together and having a deeper base color to create depth and contrast. Depending on your starting point your colorist may have to take some steps to get your hair to the necessary level to be able to do these techniques.image1.PNG

BIC_Isa_454x555The above photo is an example of the blur technique. It is a technique where two or more colors are blurred together to create a transition between the two. In this look a blush color and a “peachy” pink color are blurred together with a platinum blonde base color.

The photo to the left is an example of the blur technique using “champagne” and beige tones. This look is a lot more natural and blended but it is the same idea where two tones are blurred together to create a smooth transition.

Another modern look is the shadowed base. Doing this makes blonde hair look like it has more depth and makes hair look more abundant. After a blonding services your colorist can apply this base color while toning the lengths of your hair and blur the two together. This technique is demonstrated in the photo to the right created by Rio hair stylist Laura Carmichael.

The possibilities are endless with Shades EQ! To schedule a consultation with one of our skilled colorists call us at 904-733-8495 or visit us at www.RioHairStudio.com!

Summer Hair Obsessions!

heidihair

As we kick off these summer months, Rio is also kicking off our “Protect Your Hair from Summer Air” promotion. We have everything you need to keep your hair looking and feeling its best.

Summer in Florida is beaches, pools, cookouts, parties, boats and everything else under the sun. But what many people don’t realize is how taxing these activities can be on your hair. A lot of my clients complain about dryness, breakage, premature color fading and poufy, unmanageable hair. Well we have the solution to your issues as well as some tips for having fun during the summer without sacrificing the health of your hair.

Blonde Ambition

When summer rolls around so does the need to be blonde! Its no secret that blonde is definitely the IT color for summer in Florida. But, it does take work to make sure your blonde stays beautiful and your hair stays intact, especially if you weren’t born with those golden locks. But lucky for you there is a hair care line made specially for you!

blondeidol

Redken’s Blonde Idol consists of a color-safe, sulfate free shampoo, a tone perfecting treatment (it comes in cool and warm depending on what tone your blonde is) and a spray leave in conditioner. All together this regimen will make sure your blonde stays balanced, beautiful and bright!

Blonde Tip: When going in the pool, try not to get your hair wet. But, if you’re going to anyway, rinse your hair and apply conditioner to it combing it through to coat all of your hair before getting in the water. This will create a barrier and prevent your hair from soaking up the pool water. Afterward, rinse it out.

When the Problem is Breakage

Tight ponytails, summer wind, buns, sun, pools: all cause breakage! If you’re noticing your ends just popping off or now you have little hairs around your hairline that you swore weren’t there before, then you need to get on board with Redken Extreme ASAP! The Extreme line is protein enriched to replenish your hair and help strengthen it to fight against split ends. When your hair is exposed to the elements the proteins that hold it all together get weakened. Giving your hair a dose of protein every so often will help and you will notice a difference after just a few applications. I use the Extreme line on myself and I am hooked! I flat iron my hair often and it has never been as healthy and shiny as it is now.

Pro Tip: Getting haircuts regularly during the summer is crucial. Think every 8 weeks for a trim. Also, using a protein rich mask once a week will help prevent more breakage  and ends splitting higher up the hair shaft.

Frizzy Hair, DO Care!

Do you need to get your mane under control? Look no further than Redken’s Frizz Dismiss. They have created what is know as FPF or Frizz Protection Factor. Your factor depends on the texture and density of your hair. It ranges from 10-40! The sulfate-free shampoo is safe for color treated hair and the ultra thick conditioner creates a barrier between your hair and the humid Florida air. Honestly, this product line is a gift from heaven. The FPF 20 Smooth Force spray is a lightweight, smoothing lotion spray that is a great on the go product to have all summer long.

Pro Tip: When fighting frizz, make sure your hair is sufficiently moisturized. Dry hair will pull moisture from the air causing it to swell and become unruly. Try a moisturizing mask or spray in conditioner.
