Hair extensions are the best kept secret to every women. But what happens when the extensions are not blending or the colors don’t quite match, or the wind blows….. How embarrassing! To create that perfect seamless blend the colors need to match perfectly with a gradual blend from darkness to lightness. So unless you are platinum blond near the roots of your hair, you should never have that bright of color through the roots of your extensions. A gradual blend is how naturally sun kissed hair looks and thats our goal at RGH. Thanks to Companies like Hot heads, They offer color melts and rooted color, to create that perfect Balayage look or slight root depth so your best kept secret stays at the HAIRDRESSER!

Sombre is a softer version of ombre. It is very subtle and fashionable look, loved by many celebrities. Sombre goes well with all variations of hair textures.
A great look to blend out old highlights or change up your look. Great for woman who like lo maintenance hair, but still want to keep up with trends. Can vary in colours and tones from blonde to caramel to dark browns, warmer and cooler tones to become more personalised for each client and there lifestyle.!
Also a great look as it’s so easy to change up the color on the mid way mark, toning is key to this look and as toners fade you will have a few different stages to the color,which I personally love! Depending on debts and warmth you can be more copper one week and more caramel the next and as for brighter tones more Icy one week and more golden the next
So here’s one we did at rockgorgeous
So you can see the color is more blended and even with multi tones to add dimention.!
Most important was a detaild consultation, of what the client wanted to achieve with her new style, we looked though images and setteled on one.! Imagery is a great way to distuingush exactly what the client is looking to achieve
Technique : I chose a base color to suite her complection using nothing permentant as she is open to change in the future.! I applied base color first and then using free hand painting technique smudging each section with a fine weave using foil to separate each section for a cleaner lift.!
Once color was applied I let sit for 30 mins with no heat.!
After development time the color was rinced using oribe moisture and control shampoo and conditioner to keep hair moisturised after Color
And now its glaze time the most important step.! I glazed at the section so I could see exactly where we wer at and where we wanted to go.!
Once I knew this I the applied my glaze using redkin shades 7nb from roots to ends leaving sit for 10 mins in total.! And repeat process at sink shampooing and condition.!
Cut and blow was the last process we did a one length baseline to maintain a strong perimeter and soften through with some textures layering to give movement.! Applying some unite beach day for the blowdry I used x2 medium sized brushes using twisting technique and finished using unite argon oil for shine

Amanda’s Loveley client Christine brought in The inspiration pic is our lovely Kirsten Stewart.
you can see what the process would be to turn into this platinum bombshell from a dark base.
Ok so as we all know by now (I hope) this look is not easily achievable, the hair must be assessed in condition, length and lifestyle to begin as pre-lightning hair can be strenuous on the condition. Lucky for this client she had a lot of virgin hair to work with and was ok with cutting the length up for a restyle.
Amanda alway’s prepare’s her client that they may not be able to achieve this on the first attempt as you never know exactly the hair history and chemistry of each individuals hair. This is not a service to be rushed by any means it take time and is not achievable for every client first attempt!
Step one: pre lightened hair starting on virgin hair then applying with olaplex to ends
Step two: rinse carefully and then Olaplex no 2 applied them rough dried and then step 1 is applied again to achieve the right undertone for a cool color
Step three : toning with the correct target shade which is Applied when step 2 is rinsed and treated
Then cut and styled
The after care is one of the most important aspects to keep this look, and not alwasy easy. There are options and you should combine and consider before going this color .
1: regular treatments and conditioning in or out of salon ex: Olaplex number 2 in salon or no 3 take home treatment or any other regular salon treatment
2: regular toning to keep the icy\ blond tone in salon as an addition to treatment and also a blond/ silver/ blue shampoo/ conditioner is a must for home care
3: regular and careful root touch up every 4-6 weeks to maintain color and condition for hair
4: regular hair cuts also a must along with the other most commen e.g. Heat heavy brushing tight elastics
This look is one of the top trend right know very edgy brave and fun! #blondshavemorefun
Everyone should be blonde at least once go for it.!! there are many types of blonde to achieve if platinum isn’t for you., our stylists at rockgorgeous are always there to guide you in the right direction.!
