Color Refresh

Are you feeling bold enough for a splash of summer color? Everyone seems to be a bit bored with their everyday color. Pastels are still popular and we’re seeing those eye-catching hot pinks, purples and blues popping up all over the city as we move into the summer season. Everything from overall statement colors to more subtle highlights adorns Boston’s fashion savvy ladies. What’s next? The color wheel has no limits…silver, subtle rose colors and more traditional mocha and chocolate browns or the ever popular summer ash blonde.

3 Tips for Fun, Flirty Color-Treated Hair:
  1. Going Permanent? It’s a big commitment so be prepared. If you think you’re ready for the long haul, picture yourself with purple hair six months down the road at your sister’s wedding, the office or your boyfriend’s family home. If you love the look go for it! If not, head for the demi-permanent formulas. Less commitment for the adventurous yet cautious soul.
  2. Take care of it! Use product designed to care for color treated hair. We recommend Oribe’s Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color. Moisturize that color to keep hair soft and damage free.
  3. A bit timid? No problem! Take a more manageable risk with traditional colors. Shades of blonde, chocolate brown and red can give you a walk on the wild side without the pastel pantone palette.

Mario’s Pick of The Summer


Silver …edgy, ethereal silver fox grey. It’s a frosty shade perfect for those hot summer nights! Get your color on this summer…you deserve it!

 

  • Start with day-old hair. To create volume, curl sections of hair at the crown of your head using hot rollers, round brush, or curling iron, whatever is your preference. If you have fine hair and would like even more volume, lightly tease the hair at your crown once you curl it.
  • Curl all of your hair with a 1.5-inch curling iron to help add to the fullness of the braid.
