Gray Hair Blending

Gray Hair Blending-Gray Blending is a big trend right now! I receive many requests for this color process by clients who are tired of trying to hide the gray or just want to embrace their beautiful gray hair.. Take a look at this photo. This is one of my gray blending clients. Absolutely love the outcome of this color process!

Why does hair go gray? As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more transparent color — like gray, silver, or white — as it grows. … The arrival of gray hair is common in people 50 and up, but anyone can get gray hair at any age!

FUNKHUE PINK M2 Salon Durham NC – Hair Color Specialist Margy Sheppard at M2 Salon uses Oligo Pro FUNKHUE for all of her fun semi-permanent hair color options. Below, we’re showing one of Margy’s clients after a recent FUNKHUE Pink semi-permanent color application. How fun is this?!funk-hue-pink-hair-m2-salon-durham-nc-website

Sometimes you just want to think outside the natural hair color box and mix it up with a rainbow hue. Margy says that FUNKHUE shades are all the rage, appointment requests are up dramatically; scroll through social media and you’ll see exactly what she means. Margy’s take is that the nice thing about dipping into a more dramatic dye is that options such as FUNKHUE are semi-permanent, which means it will gradually fade over the course of several weeks/shampoos. Think of it as an option to go bold, without having to make any kind of serious color commitment!

Margy strongly recommends consulting with a hair color professional to help avoid crazy color mistakes!!! This isn’t self promotion, but advice based on experience. She says to keep in mind that the base shade you’re starting with will definitely affect the end result; generally speaking, bright tones work best on bleached or blonde hair. (If you’re starting with a darker color, you may want to consider lightening it first, or seeking out formulas specifically made for brunettes.)

From Oligo Pro:
Define Funky: fashionable in an unusual and noticeable way.
Define Hue: a degree of lightness, darkness or strength of a color.
Combine them to get a fun and fierce line offering many shades of semi-permanent hair color!
