Introducing the New Expensive Blonde Hair Color Technique at unDONE!

If you’ve ever dyed your hair blonde, you understand the time and money that goes into the color you want to achieve. That’s why the latest hair color trend to go viral in 2022 is the “expensive blonde,” which is a shade that literally lives up to its name.

With restrictions lifting worldwide, people are ready for a fresh, new “lighter for summer” change to get them out of the isolation funk. Soft and full of dimension, expensive blonde is the exact opposite of the low-maintenance pandemic blonde that everyone has become used to. When it comes down to it, expensive blonde is a soft contrast with fewer shadows in the hair, but it’s not one set color. Instead, it’s a warmer shade full of dimension with highs and lows throughout.

If expensive blonde is a shade you are considering, it’s important to expect a good chunk of time at your favorite Boise hair salon to achieve it. While this hair color looks seamless and natural, the process can be expensive and time-consuming, hence its name. To achieve optimal results, expensive blond requires tons of fine foil highlights, and lowlights are added for maximum blending and dimension.

Getting Expensive Blonde At Your Boise Hair Salon

If you’re interested in getting the expensive blonde look, ask for foils or balayage highlights, as this is a personal preference. However, it’s important to make sure your stylist uses more than one shade of blonde and possibly lowlights to help create depth and dimension.

You should also expect long coloring sessions to achieve your final look. However, expensive blonde hair is low maintenance in-between visits to your Boise hair salon. While it may cost more upfront than a single process blonde, the color variation and technique are well worth the investment because they will grow out with less demarcation and look beautiful longer. Just plan on getting touch-ups every three to four months.

At unDONE, our stylists recommend reparative shampoos and conditioners, like Davine NOUNOU products. They are perfect for bleached, permed, or relaxed hair, gently cleansing and conditioning treated hair, giving it deep nourishment, hydration, and restoring natural softness.

A glossing treatment can also refresh your expensive blonde shade. At unDONE, we recommend coming in every 8-10 weeks for a glossing treatment to refresh highlights. Not only will it help refresh and add shine to your color but provide you with conditioned and more manageable hair.

Below are some of the most popular expensive blonde looks. Feel free to screenshot your favorite and show your colorist at your favorite Boise hair salon.

Jasmine Sanders rocks an expensive blonde color with her award-winning curls, making it the perfect combo for 2022 styles.

Chrishell Stause transformed her caramel base into a warm expensive blonde shade last summer.

As the queen of expensive blonde hair, no one does it better than Jennifer Lopez with her signature loose waves that show off her multidimensional highlights and lowlights.

Introducing the New Hair Frosting Technique at unDONE!

Although we are still early into 2022, stylists around the world have been predicting and coming up with plenty of hairstyle trends that are gaining popularity. These include everything from French glossing to the modern mullet and more. However, there’s one LA-inspired look that is starting to gain traction — and it’s set to take over as one of the most requested hair colors at our Boise salon. Introducing… Hair frosting!

What is Hair Frosting?

Created by Stuart Marsh, an award-winning color director at Taylor Taylor London, hair frosting shouldn’t be confused with the 90s boy band frosted tips. Instead, today’s hair frosting consists of bleaching individual hair strands to a cool blonde shade from root to tip, leaving nearby darker strands untouched. This hair color technique creates a multifaceted look that creates a subtle contrasting effect. As these lightened strands fall among darker hair, it resembles the frosty look of trees in the winter — hence the term’ hair frosting’.

Hair Frosting Vs. Balayage

Balayage is one of the most popular hair color techniques of the past decade. However, there’s a huge difference between hair frosting and balayage. While hair frosting and balayage are both hair lightening techniques that don’t require coloring every single strand of hair, frosting provides you with a more muted, subtle effect. On the other hand, Balayage means ‘sweep’, in French, so hair is lightened in much larger sections.

Keep in mind that frosting incorporates small, cool-blonde tones to contrast with the darker hair around it. Not only is it easier to maintain, but it can also create full layers of color with a detailed finish that doesn’t appear overdone. This makes it an excellent hair color option for those who want something easy to manage without high commitment.

Hair Frosting is Customizable

Want to know the best part about hair frosting? It’s completely customizable depending on how your hair falls naturally or which style you prefer to rock. This makes it perfect for all hair types and textures, providing you take care of it. However, it’s important to keep in mind that bleached hair is more prone to becoming dry and brittle. That’s why it’s important to wash your hair less (every other day), so you maintain your natural oils instead of stripping them. You should also cut back on heat styling and use a hydrating deep conditioner like Davines NOUNOU Hair Mask to help reverse damage and protect weakened, bleached hair.

How to Achieve the Perfect Look

Hair frosting is all about achieving a dainty softness — and it’s going to be extremely popular this year. At unDONE, we recommend taking some pictures of some hair frosting styles for inspiration ahead of your Boise salon appointment. You should also ask your stylist to add cool tones that contrast your darker hair and explain that you would like to create a more muted look than traditional highlights.

2022 Fresh Haircut Trends

Although we were in the middle of a pandemic (and still are), 2021 was a wonderful year for hair. With new trends being born on Instagram and TikTok, we’ve seen everything from curtain bangs, 70s waves, mullets, and shags take center stage. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following haircut trends that are going to take 2022 by storm.

The Mixie


Image the “mixie” as the baby of the mullet and pixie haircuts. Effectively, it’s a short pixie with longer edges, which provides a  much softer look. The best part? The mixie can look great on people with straight, wavy, or curly hair.

’70s Drapes


 This fringe style is perfect for those who want to grow out their curtain bangs. This 2022 haircut frames your face around your cheekbones and can be worn center or off-center, depending on your individual look. It also looks great with longer layers and works really well if you tie your hair up.

The Bi-Bob


This year, people are starting to move away from textured cuts like shags and mullets. Instead, they prefer heavier silhouettes and bolder lines. The bi-bob with heavy fringe is a perfect example. It still provides you with shape, being shorter at the front and longer in the back while providing you with a fresh, timeless cut.

Spherical Shapes


2022 is all about embracing the natural texture of your hair. Think round shapes cut above your shoulders and worn off your cheeks. For spherical curls, our Boise hair salon stylists suggest twisting your hair around your fingers before diffusing with a hairdryer.

The European Bob


In 2021 London stylists predicted the “Italian bob.” Slightly shorter in the front, it provides you with the perfect facelift, giving you a very youthful appearance. Not only is this haircut versatile, but it also looks great on just about anyone regardless of face shape, hair color, or age. The best part? You can forget about excess styling as it’s extremely easy to wear.

The Carved Bob


Since the bob never goes out of style, our Boise hair salon stylists predict the carved bob will be the most popular in 2022. Because the ends are expertly carved to appear weighty for maximum volume, the outline will look slightly more textured, giving you a modern, retro look.

The Modern Mullet


The modern mullet is a great cut for those who want to progress their hairstyle into a more modern shape without an 80s look. A layered fringe works perfectly to frame your eyes, much like the short, sharp style above.

The Octopus


First appearing in Korea and Japan, the Octopus haircut consists of short layers on top with longer lengths beneath, resembling the tentacles of an octopus. The only drawback? Because this style isn’t exactly low-maintenance, you will have to visit your Boise hair salon to cut off the longer length underneath to help keep its shape.

Low Layers


Popular 2022 haircuts are all about medium-length and longer styles that require less maintenance and appear soft and wispy with a polished texture. Since many 70s styles have come back with a modern twist, low layers are perfect for tailoring these looks to your hair type.

unDONE Salon

While it remains to be seen where 2022 hairstyles will go, one thing’s for sure, women everywhere are loving the variations we are seeing and are ready and eager to experiment with new hairstyles. At unDONE Salon, your Boise hair salon stylist can help you achieve your haircut goals.

A Boise Hair Salon Guide to Gray Blending

At a certain point in their lives, many women are faced with a major decision. They can either grow out their gray hair or color it because they prefer the natural color they were born with. While it’s entirely up to you on how you want to embrace the future, there may come a point where you would like to try something new. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists have extensive experience in color transformations that take women with gray hair to a beautiful blended color without the worry of full coverage hair color. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following guide to gray blending to help you make an informed decision.

What Is Gray Blending?

Not sure what the term “gray blending” means? Well, basically, it’s like gray camouflage. It’s a low-maintenance hair color technique that helps hide gray hair by adding other colors similar to your natural shade. This helps gray hair to appear less white or silver while creating a smoother transition to these lighter shades. While gray hair will still be in the mix, it won’t be the dominant color. Think of it like adding more pepper to salt.

Gray Blending Options

There are a wide variety of options for blending gray hair, each with its own unique results.

Traditional Highlights

Traditional highlights are often the most popular option for camouflaging gray hair. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists use foils to highlight sections of hair to break up the look of gray hair. This is particularly great for those with blonde hair as ashy or icy highlights blend wonderfully with gray hair.

Lowlights

Lowlights are another great option for blending gray hair. They are used for people with dark or red hair as they tend to blend better with natural hair than traditional highlights. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists will tactically play lowlights over gray strands to help blend them with your natural hair color.

Balayage

Balayage is another popular option to blend gray hair. While it won’t cover gray hair entirely, it will very lightly blend it, so any gray hairs complement the natural color of your hair. This is a great way to create a sun-kissed look, especially for those with naturally blonde hair.

Babylights

Last but not least, babylights are great for blending wispy grays. Because they mimic the natural highlights that you get from the sun, they can help to blend away small strands of gray hair.

Embracing Gray Hair

Unfortunately, trying to stop gray hair from growing is like trying to stop the wind from blowing. While you can color your hair to help hide the gray, it will always come back. That’s why fighting it will be a constant struggle. At unDONE, we can help relieve the anxiety of dealing with gray hair. Sometimes all you need is a slight change of perspective.

Instead of thinking of gray hair as something you need to fight, we can help you create a whole new style that is more fitting of the person you are at this moment in time. By embracing gray hair and opting for gray blending to help keep it under control, we can provide you with a classy, sophisticated look that controls how much gray you show.

unDONE Salon

If you feel conflicted about your gray hair and are looking for ways to blend them into a new style, contact the experts at unDONE Salon today. Our expert stylists will help you find a style that fits you best and get the most out of your look with gray blending or a full coverage hair color.

Color Correction in Boise

Fixing A DIY Disaster With A Color Correction in Boise, Idaho

Whether we like to admit it or not, we’ve all tried to save time and money with a hair color kit we picked up at the grocery store. However, the results were nothing like it was promised on the box. If this has recently happened to you, don’t despair. The stylists at unDONE Salon can help fix a DIY disaster with a color correction in Boise, Idaho.

What is a color correction service?

A color correction service helps to restore hair to the closest desired color possible. Basically, it’s a rescue service for DIY hair color-related accidents. Color correction is usually a multi-step process that often requires a few appointments to complete. That’s why it’s important to be patient when it comes to fixing your hair. After all, beauty is worth the wait, and rushing the process could further damage your hair.  That’s why you should consider the things below when preparing for a color correction service.

Have Realistic Expectations

It’s important to schedule a free consultation with one of our stylists at unDONE to determine if the results of what you want to achieve are possible. If your hair is over-processed from a previous hair color treatment, pushing the envelope to achieve a certain look may not be possible immediately or at all.

It Takes Commitment

Taking your hair from dark to light or removing color that you didn’t expect can take time. Remember, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. It can take several appointments with time in between to achieve the perfect result to protect your hair. During this time, your hair may not look anything like you want it to be. Think of it like painting a picture; the process will take priming, base coats, and finishing to produce the final result.

It’s a Science

There’s a lot of science that goes into the color correction process. Like the example we used above, there are a few steps that your hair must go through:

  1. There’s the prep work (strand test) to see how much color or how much stress your hair can handle.
  2. Priming your hair to remove as much color as possible to start with a clean, healthy slate.
  3. Correcting and manipulating the color to achieve your goal.
  4. Maintain it and set up a plan for future appointments and products at home.

Dark Hair Color Correction

If the color of your hair turned out darker than you wanted it, the first step during the color correction process would be to remove as much of the dark pigment as possible. Once complete, the stylists at unDONE can begin the process of lightening your hair. During this time, we will factor in the health of your hair and how far it can be lightened without damaging it in the process. This often requires scheduling a few appointments to let your hair recover between each step to protect it from damage.

Light Hair Color Correction

If your hair turned a few shades lighter than you wanted it, it’s usually a little easier to correct. A darker shade can often be applied on top of over-lightened hair. However, you should never attempt to do this at home. Choosing the wrong dye or the wrong color can make matters much worse. The last thing you want to end up with is green, brassy, or an orange mess that may require additional steps to the color correction process. At unDONE, our stylists are professionally trained and know how to mix dyes and colors to get the desired effect.

unDONE Salon

Whether it’s a DIY disaster or you’ve fallen victim to a cheap salon, the expert stylists at unDONE are here to help without judgment with a color correction in Boise. Give us a call at (208) 287-2010 or schedule an appointment online. We’ll develop a plan to fix your hair and achieve your ultimate goals. You can find us at 738 N. Benjamin Lane, near the Boise Towne Square Mall.

How Can I Make My Bright Hair Color Last Longer?

If you’ve recently spent big bucks on a vibrant new hair color, the last thing you want is for it to fade. Whether you’re rocking bright blue hair or a beautiful balayage look, you can make your hair color last. It’s all about proper maintenance between salon visits. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following tips to make your bright hair color last longer.

Start with Healthy Hair

While bleach is sometimes necessary to lighten your hair, it’s important to know that unhealthy, damaged hair won’t hold color well. This means that if you take your black hair to a vibrant pink, it may not hold because your hair isn’t in good shape. That’s why it’s important to be patient with your hair color journey if you’re going from a dark to lighter shade and nurture your hair in the process with repairing hair masks and salon-grade products.

Get a Professional Hair Color Service

A box of DIY hair color may seem tempting when it comes to saving money, but booking a professional service is the best way to go. Why? First of all, your stylist at unDONE has access to all the professional hair color products, which are formulated to be vibrant, gentle, and long-lasting. More importantly, they have the professional training necessary to create a customized color just for you. Last but not least, you’ll end up with the exact color you want. You simply never know how your color will turn out with a box of hair dye you purchase at the grocery store.

Shampoo the Right Way

When you get a vibrant, new hair color, it’s essential to stay away from any shampoos that contain sulfates as it will strip your hair of its natural moisture, thus fading your color in the process. Sulfate-free shampoos are formulated without any harsh ingredients, so they are perfect for cleansing bright, beautiful hues. Even better, some formulas like Davines MINU Shampoo are formulated to gently cleanse your hair while protecting its color and keeping it shiny longer.

Rinse with Cool Water

This is actually the number one tip to protecting bright hair color. Hot water opens the cuticle of your hair, allowing color to escape. While you don’t have to rinse with ice-cold water, the cooler the better. Cold water also prevents bleeding if you have more than one color in your hair. If you end up rinsing with hot water, your hair can turn into a different colored mess.

Use Dry Shampoo

Scared of your hair color going down the drain? Skip the daily wash and only lather every other day. On the days you don’t wash, use a dry shampoo to maintain fresh, clean hair. The best part? Dry shampoo helps to lock texture, making it perfect for styling twists and braids that showcase your beautiful hair color.

Use a Heat Protectant Spray

Can’t live without your favorite styling tools? At unDONE, we don’t judge. However, to protect your bright, beautiful hair color, it’s essential to use a heat protectant spray to prevent it from fading. We recommend Davines MELU Hair Shield that’s ideal for protecting all types of hair from stress caused by straightening or blow-drying.

Avoid Sun Exposure

Everyone knows the sun’s UV rays can be damaging to your skin. The same goes for your hair color too. UV rays can oxidize and break down the color pigment in your hair, causing it to fade faster. That’s why it’s important to avoid excessive sun exposure and wear a hat or scarf when you’re out and about.

Wear a Shower Cap

If you’re in between washes, wearing a shower cap when you bathe will prevent your hair from getting wet. This will not only prevent fading, but it allows you to turn up the temperature without your hair color going down the drain.

And there you have it! Our best tips and tricks for maintaining bright hair color while keeping it healthy and beautiful in the process. Contact our Boise hair salon stylists for more information by scheduling an appointment online or give unDONE a call at (208) 287-2010 today.

Even though we are still caught up in the COVID-19 pandemic, the fall season still feels like a fresh new start. What better way to channel that feeling than with the most popular haircuts going into 2022? After a summer of frizzy hair from chlorine and saltwater, your hair deserves a little extra attention. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have put together the following list of trending haircuts for fall.

70s Flip

1970s Farah Fawcett hair has been dominating social media as one of the coolest looks of the season. To achieve this look, your Boise hair salon stylist can provide you with curtain bangs that are long enough to tuck behind your ears with longer layers throughout. To boost the retro look, use a round brush when you blow-dry and hot rollers for extra volume and bounce.

Modern Diana

With the royals dominating the headlines lately, you may be wanting to replicate a modern version of Princess Diana’s 90s chop. This classic royal style is such a fresh, fun look for 2022 and emanates confidence and style. The haircut itself is a mixture of short layered bob edging toward a pixie.


Instagram/@chloehelenmiles

French Bob

A French bob is officially one of the most popular haircuts going into 2022. This style is typically shorter than your average chin-length bob. Instead, it has a bit of a wedge to it, making it chic and stylish. The best part? People with all different hair textures look amazing with this style.

Invisible Layers

As a modern variant of layering, invisible layers provide a slight angle around your face, working its way down to the length of your hair. This provides you with wonderful movement without sacrificing your length. However, it’s important to choose a Boise hair salon stylist that can blend the layers to provide you with a seamless look.

’70s Shag

Along with Farah Fawcett hair, a 70s inspired shag is a beautiful haircut because it looks great with minimal effort and provides you with the perfect rocker feel. To achieve this look, ask your Boise hair salon stylist to provide you with internal or shattered layers.

Blunt Lob

People all over the Treasure Valley are asking for blunt cuts because they provide a bold, fuller look. While a blunt bob is definitely a statement haircut, this style looks equally good in a collarbone-grazing lob.

Layered Curls

When it comes to curly hair, it’s all about layering going into 2022. To achieve this look, ask your Boise hair salon stylist to take some weight out of the main bob line to prevent a wide look and help it lie effortlessly while maintaining its overall shape.

unDONE Salon

While it remains to be seen where 2022 hairstyles will go, one thing’s for sure, women everywhere are loving the variations we are seeing and are ready and eager to experiment with new hairstyles. At unDONE Salon, your Boise hair salon stylist can help you achieve your wolf cut goals.

Breaking Down the Costs of Hair Color

How much you should pay for a hair color treatment is a complicated question. Many clients expect an exact number, and as Boise hair salon professionals, we wish it was that easy too! However, a wide variety of factors come to play before setting a dollar amount for an individual treatment. That’s why unDONE would like to break down the costs of hair color so that you can get a better idea of what to expect before booking a free consultation.

Cheap Salons Vs. Specialized Ones

As we mentioned above, many factors go into the cost of hair color. Think about it like ordering a meal at your favorite restaurant. There will always be salons (like restaurants) that are cheap or more expensive for what they offer. However, it’s essential to determine approximately what you are getting at an expertise level. For example, if you were to visit one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants, you’d expect to pay top dollar for the Michelin-Starred hamburger you’ve ordered. However, ordering a burger from McDonald’s would be a much cheaper alternative, but you would be sacrificing quality, taste, and satisfaction. The same hold’s true for cheap salons compared to specialized ones. When you book a hair color appointment at unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists will factor in the starting point of your hair, your desired result, the cost of the product, and the techniques needed to achieve it.

Your Starting Point

Your hair’s starting point is a huge factor when it comes to the price of a color treatment. For example, if you want to achieve platinum blonde but your hair is box-dyed black, the process to get your hair where you want it is going to take time and money. Think of it as a hair journey. To achieve a platinum blonde look, you’re going to have to make multiple appointments for different processes to keep your hair as healthy as possible. Attempting to go the DIY route or choosing a cheap salon alternative could result in significant damage and color that you are less than thrilled about. Below are some additional starting points that will affect the cost of a quality hair color treatment.

Virgin Hair

If you have virgin hair that hasn’t been colored, you are in the best possible position for a lower-cost hair color treatment. Why? Virgin hair is the cleanest possible canvas to work with. The price quoted should be very true to the price you pay. With virgin hair, it will color as expected without much fuss or issues.

Previous Professional Hair Color

If you’ve had your hair professionally colored at unDONE in the past, our Boise hair salon stylists will have a more accurate idea of what we will be able to do with it. We’ve had clients go from a level 10 platinum blonde to a level 6 medium brown before wanting to go back to blonde. While it’s not an easy process, having worked with you before, we will have control over the entire color experience. Long story short, by having your hair professionally colored at unDONE, we will have a better prediction of what you can achieve going forward.

Color Correction

If you walk into unDONE with box dye hair color that didn’t turn out the way you wanted, there’s a good chance it’s not going to be an easy fix. Hair color corrections can result in long, multiple appointments to save the integrity of your hair. This, in turn, will result in a higher costing hair color treatment.

Keep in mind, on average, most salons charge $100 per hour for a color correction treatment. While this might seem a bit pricey, your Boise hair salon stylist will have to use a ton of time, product, and techniques to achieve your hair goals. This results in booking you for multiple hours or an entire day, so we won’t help other clients, which affects our income.

unDONE Salon

So there you have it. A general breakdown of what to expect when it comes to factoring the costs of a hair color treatment. That’s why it’s essential to do your research and determine your starting point to find what you should expect for your next hair color appointment. Want to learn more or book an appointment?

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Determining The Best Haircut For Your Face Shape

The shape of your face is extremely important when it comes to choosing the perfect haircut. While it can feel daunting trying to determine which style will look best on you, there are a wide variety of lengths and styles to best complement your face. To help clarify any confusion, the stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following Boise hair salon tips for determining the best haircut for your face shape.

Determining Your Face Shape

Almost everyone in Boise has a distinct face shape. The most general shapes are categorized as oval, square, long, round, and heart-shaped. Women with oval faces tend to have the most versatility when it comes to choosing a new haircut. However, they should pay more attention to their hair texture and thickness before settling on a new style.

When determining the best cut for your face shape, you should also think about the features you want to downplay, such as your forehead or ears. The personality and length of your hair should also be considered. Keep in mind that everyone is different, and you don’t have to follow all the rules when it comes to a style you love. Below are some general characteristics to help you determine the shape of your face:

Long Face

Long face shapes are typically characterized by slim, elongated features with high foreheads and narrow jawlines.

  • Defined Cheekbones
  • High Forehead
  • Narrow, Smooth Jawline
Heart-Shaped Face

Heart-shaped faces are typically characterized by a wider brow with a narrower chin.

  • Defined Cheekbones
  • A similar appearance to round faces
  • A slender jawline
Square Face

The characteristics of a square face include a squared jawline with the forehead, cheekbones, and jawline approximately the same width.

  • A pronounced jawline.
  • Equal length and width
  • A square or flat chin
Round Face

One of the most common face shapes is round. Round faces are approximately the same width across as they are high without any hard angles.

  • Round forehead at the hairline
  • No hard lines or angles
  • Rounded jawline
Oval Face

Oval-shaped faces are typically characterized by a forehead and jawline that are approximately the same width.

  • Face gracefully tapers to the chin
  • A wider forehead
  • Prominent cheekbones

Highlighting Your Best Features

Since there are a wide variety of styles to suit your face shape to choose from, the basic rule for finding the best haircut is to highlight your best features. These include:

  • Heart-Shaped Face: Draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones with bangs or side volume.
  • Long Face: Shorter hair will help prevent a longer-looking face. You should also choose a style with plenty of volume or bangs to help break up the length.
  • Oval Face: Lucky girl! Almost every hairstyle flatters an oval face shape. Finding a good style based on your hair’s texture is probably more important.
  • Round Face: Some of the best haircuts for round faces are those below your chin.
  • Square Face: Texture in the form of choppy ends or curls can help downplay a strong, angular jaw.

Do What Makes You Feel Best

In the end, you don’t have to follow any specific set of rules when it comes to choosing a style that you love. The secret to looking your best is feeling your best. The last thing you want to do is end up with a haircut that makes you feel uncomfortable. How you feel about yourself is the most important thing versus what the beauty industry thinks is flattering. If you have the right attitude, you can pull off just about any look.

unDONE Salon

At unDONE Salon, we offer personalized consultations when it comes to choosing the best hairstyle for your face shape. Our Boise hair salon stylists are more than happy to answer any questions you may have to help you settle on the perfect style that highlights all your best features. We want you to walk out of our salon feeling brand new and beautiful, whether it’s a dramatic or subtle change your looking for. If you would like to learn more, contact our 738 N. Benjamin Lane location at (208) 287-2010 or schedule an appointment online.

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Understanding & Treating Gray Hair

Just like with wrinkles, getting older results in gray hair. While some people accept these changes as a privilege, others would like to prolong a more youthful look. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with the following Boise hair salon tips for understanding and treating gray hair.

Gray Hair Causes

There are many reasons why we develop gray hair. These range from stress to age to genetics. No matter the reason, hair goes gray because it loses its pigment (when color-responsible cells, called melanin, stop being produced). Furthermore, gray hair can also be caused by malnutrition or hormones.

At What Age Do People Go Gray?

Unfortunately, there’s no set number to answer this question. The age at which people go gray varies from person to person. Some people may notice a few silvery strands in their 20s, while others may not spot any gray until their 40s. This holds true for any hair color. However, people with darker hair may notice gray hair sooner, as white strands stand out more.

Does Gray Hair Change Texture?

Sometimes. Many people with gray hair report their strands feeling coarse or wiry. However, this isn’t due to a loss of pigment. Rather it’s another natural process of getting older. As we age, our hair follicles produce less oil, which causes a coarser texture. For those with wiry hair, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE suggest a hydrating shampoo and conditioner from Davines that’s specially designed for dry, dehydrated hair. You can also schedule an in-salon treatment to smooth and hydrate hair to help tame and soften grey strands.

Can Gray Hair Be Colored?

Of course! While gray hair can be more resistant to color, unDONE offers a wide variety of color treatment options for those looking to hide their silver stands. Understanding which option is right for you and how to properly approach the process should be left to a professional to achieve the desired look you want to achieve. These include:

Highlights

A popular approach to coloring gray hair is highlights. Highlights are a wonderful option because the hair color is diversified. Since gray hair is devoid of any color pigment, it will absorb hair color differently and often has a different contrast against your natural color. This, in turn, results in a better balanced, more natural look with minimal maintenance compared to all-over hair color.

Permanent Hair Color

Permanent hair color provides a deeper penetration to gray hair follicles. Furthermore, if you choose this option, your Boise hair salon stylist may suggest selecting a lighter permanent color because it will look more natural and better resist strong contrast when new gray hairs appear at your roots.

Demi-permanent Colors

Another option for covering gray hair is to utilize a demi-permanent hair color. These dyes don’t have ammonia and won’t penetrate the hair shaft as deeply as a permanent hair color. Keep in mind they also won’t lighten your natural shade. However, demi-permanent colors are a great way to blend gray hair for a subtle approach to hair coloring.

Undone Salon

Whether you opt to embrace your gray hair or cover it up, there are a wide variety of hair color options to make the most out of your hairstyle. With so many color formulas available, you can either cover your gray completely or highlight your silver tresses with toned shampoos and color glazes; it’s really up to you.
