At Darren Michael Hairdressing, we are proud stockists of Wella Hair Colour– a traditional and trusted brand that uses the latest technologies to bring you the best hair colours. Wella keeps a close eye on the world of fashion and they know just how big hair colour is right now.
Colour.ID from Wella is the only product that allows you to place colours next to each other without the risk of them bleeding. As colours don’t bleed there is no need to use foils, speeding up your treatment with no compromise on the results!
Kenra Hair Colour by Guy Tang
If you’re looking for a colour that will make you stand out from the crowd, then the Darren Michael team recommend Kenra Colour by Guy Tang. This range of revolutionary hair colour products by Guy Tang boast formulas that are low in ammonia, and unlike other products, Kenra Colour will not damage the cuticle giving an even coverage and beautiful shine.
At Darren Michael, we are also loving Kenra products from Guy Tang. This is also a demi-permanent range with results that will last from 4 – 6 weeks. It will also cover greys effortlessly and is available in a wide range of beautiful shades.
Full Colour Change
Fashion doesn’t just relate to the clothes that you wear, there are trends in hair colour too. If you want your hair to stay in vogue then speak to one of our stylists at Darren Michael. We offer both permanent and semi-permanent colour if you’re not quite ready to take the plunge.
This year’s Golden Globes were awash with starlets showing off their beautiful blonde locks. Blonde hair is a huge trend this year and virtually every shade and tone is in, from ash to honey. If you’ve got the jitters about becoming a blonde bombshell, then ombre hair is still a massive trend. Remember that blonde hair can become dry and brittle if it isn’t looked after, so speak to our hair care experts about a treatment plan for you.
Inject some fire into your look with a fierce red mane this spring. For the past few years, plum reds have been in, but 2014 is the year of bold reds. Before you make any drastic decisions, book a consultation with the Darren Michael colour team to help you to pick the perfect shade for your skin tone.
If you’re brunette, then lucky you! Brunette hair is the most adaptable and will suit almost any style. Your main consideration when picking a new look is that it will compliment your face shape – our team of style experts will advise you on the best cut for you.
Highlights and Lowlights
Highlights and lowlights are arguably the most popular colouring technique. This colouring method is ideal for creating a subtle, yet very effective, change to hair colour, providing a natural look. There are several methods used when creating highlights and lowlights and the Darren Michael colourists will be able to advise on the best technique for you.
Highlights: Highlights are used to give hair a natural sun-kissed look. This result is achieved by applying individual foils to the hair – different widths and sections of hair, as well as different tones, are used to achieve the client’s desired look.
Sample Foils: This technique is very similar to traditional highlights, however it is only used on one area of hair – most commonly the fringe. Up to eight foils are applied to the hair and a subtle or dramatic look can be achieved depending on the colour used.
Partial/Half Head of Foils: This method allows you to create your own individual look. Foils can be added to the hair in a uniform pattern or randomly to allow you to achieve your desired look.
Full Head of Foils: This type of foils allow you the most dramatic change. A single colour, or an array, can be added to hair, giving a vibrant fun look.
Ombre hair is a huge trend at the moment and it is a craze that isn’t going anywhere soon – it involves the ends of the hair being a different colour to the roots. This fantastic look is just as popular in the hills of Hollywood as it is here in Rochdale. The Darren Michael team believe that fabulous hair shouldn’t only be for celebrities and so we will help you recreate the look of your favourite stars.
If your main objective is to achieve a glossy shine to your hair colour then our Wella Illumina Color is the product for you.
Wella claims that this product is the ‘biggest innovation in professional colour in over 20 years’ and we wouldn’t disagree. This range is super effective, covering 100% of white and grey hairs while leaving hair with an amazing shine.
This look is achieved in two steps – the super nourishing dye moisturises hair, relaxing the cuticle while the product containing high fiber pigment binds to the hair.
