Coloring for dark hair of medium length, short and long

Coloring is the easiest way to “change yourself without changing yourself”, to make small hairstyle upgrade, which will not turn you into a stranger for friends and colleagues, but will refresh the image and definitely change your sense of self.

Coloring is a multitonal coloring, that is, one that uses several tones at once. This gives the effect of a raised, uneven color.

Dark hair always benefits visually from coloring. But when compared with the use of the same technique on light strands, there are some peculiarities. For coloring dark hair:

  • are used darker shadesthan for light;
  • often required preliminary lightening of strandsto make the tint visible.

The main advantage of coloring on dark hair is the ability to refresh the image without discoloring all strands and without changing appearance. Uniform dark hair color often appears “flat”, and coloring can add volume and depth.

The only drawback of coloring on dark strands is that you still have to discolor. After all, light colors and bright colors on a dark base will simply not be visible. Of course, highlighting – partial discoloration or lightening – less damages the hair than complete. Besides modern discoloration can be very gentle, but the quality of the hair will still change. Not dramatic, but adding a mask to the treatment will not hurt.

It is also worth remembering that, like any coloring, and even with lightening, coloring is a salon procedure. Doing it yourself is highly discouraged – for the good of your own hair. And if the discolored strands become drier after coloring, immediately introduce a deeply restoring care (this is, for example, a mask Matrix Total Treat, pre-air conditioner Matrix Re-Bond or concentrate Biolage FiberStrong).

A lot of them! Let’s talk about the main ones with photo examples. Just show the master the picture, he will figure it out.

Longitudinal coloring is called when the strands are colored along the entire length. This is the most popular technique.

It is easy to guess from the name that thin strands are used for micro-coloring, achieving a natural effect. Beautiful overflows along the hairline are very captivating, besides, the hair will definitely not suffer.

Such hair is a decoration in itself, but the shades will lose very much if the strands fade. Our experts propose to act in advance: to introduce into the care sprays that smooth the cuticles. This is how they work Matrix Miracle Creator, Biolage Exquisite Oil and Vitamino Color 10-в-1 – choose according to your taste.

Coloring with squares-pixels is usually done either at the ends of the hair, or closer to the roots: at eye level or on the bangs. It looks very unusual and, frankly, looks more like a technique for a colorist competition than a coloring for everyday life. However, for the young and daring colored pixels – quite an idea.

In this case, the shades fall horizontally on the strands, providing a smooth transition from one to the other (usually darker at the roots to lighter at the tips). This technique is similar to balayage or ombre in visual effect, but produces more contrasting results.

Everything is simple here: not all hair volume is involved for such coloring, but only one part. Most often – the area near the face. The result is the effect of beautiful highlights, capable of slightly correct features.

The hidden zonal coloring just looks gorgeous. It is worth collecting hair in a ponytail or bun – and the colored strands will show themselves to the world. In such styling, sprays with reflective particles are appropriate as a final touch – try L’Oréal Pro Ring Light.

Recently, coloring with bright colors has become very popular. It can be one color combined with a more neutral one, a range of shades of the same color, or a palette of several different shades. Such coloring looks especially interesting. on the middle layer of hair – hidden under unpainted strands.

Spirals, tiger stripes, flowers – in our opinion, a purely “competitive” option. If you decide to do this, keep in mind that it looks good only on perfectly straight hair.

Coloring can be done on almost any hairstyle – hair length does not matter.

Long hair is always a great canvas to experiment with coloring. You can try multi-colored coloring, small and large, transverse and longitudinal.

Good option for elongated square or bob – zonal coloring on the face. This coloring is very refreshing for the appearance.

Any short hair only decorate with stylish longitudinal coloring.
