Jasonâ€™s Backeâ€™s Brass Free Tips
If you want to find out if you are likely to become brassy, you can ask yourself some questions like: Were you a brunette as a child? Are there redheads in the family? When the sun reflects off of your hair do you see any unwanted red popping out? If your answer is yes to any of those questions, you are likely to become brassy. For women who can become brassy, shade selection is key.
Essentially, warm tones, similar to the orange or reddish tones you might have in your hair, need the balance of cool tones to neutralize the brassiness. The right proportion of cool color is key to counteracting brassiness. In the salon when selecting a shade for my clients, I make sure the color has the right balance of tones and is not too warm because I know it could end up looking brassy. I make the same recommendations for coloring at-home, be sure to pick a shade that is not too warm and look for colors that have the words â€œcoolâ€ or â€œashâ€ in it.
The great thing about natural looking colors is that they have a spectrum of different tones â€“ making them more eye-catching. Natural looking colors are often softer and prettier than ultra-cool or ultra-warm haircolors and are sophisticated and chic. My salon clients are loving them â€“ and with Natural Instincts Brass Free you will too!
