Hair colour packages are an excellent way to achieve your desired look while ensuring a comprehensive and professional service. Let’s explore some options:

Whats included in all the packages?

Let’s break down the components of this bespoke hair colour service and explore how it can help you achieve your desired look:

  • Bespoke Colour:

  • This means that the hair colour will be customized specifically for you. Alex will consider your natural hair colour, skin tone, and personal preferences to create a unique shade that complements your features.

  • Root Smudge:

  • A root smudge is a technique where the stylist softens the line between your natural roots and the coloured hair. It creates a seamless transition and prevents harsh regrowth lines.

  • Root Tap:

  • A root tap involves applying a toner or gloss to the roots. It refreshes the colour, adds shine, and ensures that the roots blend beautifully with the rest of your hair.

  • Glossing:

  • Glossing is a shine-enhancing treatment that adds vibrancy and depth to your hair. It can be clear or tinted to enhance your chosen colour.

  • Toner:

  • A toner is used to adjust the undertones of your hair. It helps neutralize any unwanted brassiness or yellow tones, leaving your hair looking fresh and cool.

  • Cut & Blow-Dry:

  • After colouring, Alex will give you a precision haircut to shape and style your hair. The blow-dry ensures a polished finish.

  • K18 Hair Treatment:

  • The K18 treatment is a miracle molecule that repairs hair damage at a molecular level. It reverses damage caused by bleaching, colouring, and chemical services. Unlike traditional masks, it’s a leave-in formula that strengthens and restores your hair12.

Remember, this comprehensive package ensures not only beautiful colour but also the health and protection of your hair. Enjoy your salon experience!

Full blonding service

Blonding is the process of dyeing your hair any shade of blonde. It’s not as simple as grabbing a box of dye and heading to the bathroom. Whether you’re aiming for honey, platinum, or strawberry blonde, blonding can be complex, especially if you’re transitioning from dark to light hair. Let’s dive into the details:

brecon blonding service

  1. Types of Blonding Services: A&S Hair and Beauty.

  • Foils: If you’ve had highlights before, you’re familiar with foils. These shiny strips of paper allow your hairdresser to apply dye to individual sections of hair without affecting the surrounding areas. Foils can create subtle streaks or bold, contrasting chunks. They offer depth and versatility by using varying shades of blonde.

  • Babylights: These are subtle highlights that combine elements of balayage and standard foil highlights. Babylights require less upkeep than foils and strategically add depth to your hair, similar to balayage. They flatter any hair color, skin tone, or face shape.

  1. Balayage: Pronounced “bah-lay-ahzh,” balayage is a hand-painted technique that has been a top-requested service in salons across America for the last five years. It provides a natural, sun-kissed effect by subtly blending color throughout the hair1.

  2. Care Tips:

  • Maintenance: Blonding often requires regular touch-ups to maintain the desired shade.

  • Toning: To combat unwanted brassiness, toning products can help keep your blonde looking fresh.

  • Hydration: Blonde hair tends to be more porous, so use hydrating products to keep it healthy.

Remember, going blonde can be a fun experience, but it’s essential to follow proper steps to achieve the best results.
