Different types of hair color and terminologies

Hair Color West Palm Beach

Demi-Permanent Hair Color -


This type of color is very good for blending gray; we can only darken hair or keep hair at the same color level with type of hair color, we cannot lighten it. Demi-Permanent color touch ups should be scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks. This type of color is gentle on the hair and may fade over time. This color will contain low levels of peroxide (developer) but will contain no ammonia.

Permanent Hair Color -

This type of color can make hair darker or even a few shades lighter, and is best choice for gray coverage. The color lasts until hair grows out with minimal fading, with proper home maintenance, but re-growth (roots) will still need to be touched up every 4 to 6 weeks.

Glossing/Glazing/Toners -

We utilize semi-permanent and demi-permanet hair color for this type of service. We typically choose this coloring option change your hairs tonality (for example, making hair appear more ashy(cooler), golden(warmer), deeper (depth), etc). This product is typically used after highlighting to tone the highlighted hair to the clients desired shade.

Clear Glossing/Glazing -

Is available to add shine to hair without changing the hair color. Clear Gloss needs to be reapplied every few weeks and typically fades faster than other colors.

Highlighting -

Typically involves the use of bleach but permanent hair color can be used depending on the desired result. We use this to lighten only sections or individual strands to lighten your look without coloring all of your hair. Highlighting can be used to lighten hair or even for gray blending. The re-growth (roots) need to be touched up every 4 weeks or can last up to 3 months depending on the desired color and your natural hair color.

Low Lights -

Typically involves darkening sections of over-lightened hair or to adding depth/dimension to existing hair color. Low lights can also be used to blend grays. Re-growth (roots) should be touched up on an as-needed basis. We can also add low lights at the same time highlighting is being performed.
