Maintaining Your Haircolor Investment During The Summer Months

Maintaining Your Haircolor Investment During The Summer Months

Stepping out of unDONE with a fresh new look is one of the best feelings in the world. Summer, however, comes with it’s own set of challenges when it comes to maintaining a haircolor investment. Trips to the pool combined with exposure to the sun can not only discolor your hair but cause it to fade faster than normal. If you want to maintain your hair’s vibrancy throughout the summer, check out the following hair care tips for color-treated hair.

Don’t DIY Dye

Opt for a professional haircolor treatment instead of a DIY box dye. Ask your Boise hair salon stylist about the colors they would suggest and which one is more likely to last the longest. Unlike a one size fits all box dye, your Boise hair salon stylist will consider many important factors before customizing a formula with different hues in order to achieve the best haircolor possible.

Protect Your Hair

While swimming is a favorite summer pastime, a dip in the pool can wreack havoc on your haircolor. The chlorine used to disinfect and keep pool water clean can bleach your hair, causing it to turn green and dull faster than normal. If swimming is something you do often, make sure to throw your hair up in a bun to keep it from getting wet or soak it in clean water to prevent it from absorbing damaging levels of chlorine.

Cover Up

When it’s a beautiful day outside, you’ll want to spend your time outdoors. However, the sun can not only discolor your hair but leave it dry and damaged. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to cover up with a hat or go outside in the mornings or evenings when the sun is less intense. Damaging UV rays are the strongest between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm, so it’s important to protect your haircolor investment during this time.

Use Salon-Grade Products

TRUST us on this one. What you use on your hair will make a huge difference when it comes to the longevity of your haircolor. It’s important to invest in salon-grade products specially formulated for color-treated hair. Using the products your Boise hair salon stylist suggests will not only protect your haircolor investment but add shine, volume, and luster.

Rinse With Cold Water

Rinsing your hot summer skin with cool water is not only refreshing it’s good for your hair. Just like when you wash your clothes, cold water will help lock in your haircolor when you’re sudsing up. While it’s a good idea to give your hair a break by washing it every 2-3 days, it’s just as important to keep the water cool to prevent your haircolor from going down the drain.

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Healthy Summer Hair

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Healthy Summer Hair

Sun, salt, and chlorine are the essential elements of summer fun that can wreak havoc on your hair. With proper precautions, however, your hair can stay perfectly moisturized and protected all summer long. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following list of hair care tips for maintaining healthy summer hair.

Add Color Preserving Treatments to Your Haircolor Service
The harsh, summer elements can cause your haircolor to fade faster than normal. At your next visit to unDONE, make sure to request a color preserving treatment to extend the life of your haircolor. Our Boise hair salon stylists can also recommend products like Gem Lites & Viral Colorwash that you can use at home to help protect and maintain your haircolor.

Use Products with UV Protection
When out and about in the summer sun, you know it’s important to protect your skin with sunscreen. But what about your hair? What many people don’t realize is that the sun can damage your hair just as much as it can your skin. Sun damage can cause extreme color and texture changes, not to mention split ends and uncontrollable frizz. The best way to avoid this and protect your hair is to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist about what UV protection products they would recommend you use.

Wear Hair in Simple Braids & Gentle Up-Dos
Summer hairstyles call for simple braids and gentle up-dos. Not only will these styles save you time but they will protect your hair from excessive sweat (that contains natural amounts of ammonia and salt that dry out your hair) and unwanted UV damage. The best part? Don’t worry about your style being perfect, especially if you’re pool side. The laid back nature of these summer hairstyles (even messy) embrace the natural elements of summer and look fabulous!

Rinse Your Hair With Fresh Water Before You Jump In The Pool
Before a swim, drench your hair with fresh water. The reason? Your hair acts like a sponge by absorbing the liquids it comes in contact with. When you soak your hair in clean water before jumping in the pool, your hair will absorb less chlorine, resulting in less damage to the shaft.

Use A Deep Conditioning Treatment
To help hydrate your hair and keep it healthy and shiny this summer, use a deep conditioning treatment. While you can purchase a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment at the grocery store, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE recommend making an appointment for a deep conditioning treatment. Not only will a professional deep conditioning treatment help with dryness, it will also help with annoying summer frizz and knots.

Wear a Hat
Wearing a hat when you’re out and about in the summer sun should become a routine task. Not only will it help prevent your haircolor from fading but it will decrease your exposure to UV damage and the chances of your scalp getting burned. As an added bonus, wearing a hat will help shield your face from those harmful UV rays that cause skin damage!

Make an Appointment at unDONE
Battling the negative effects summer can have on your hair can be tough. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE are here to help! Not only can we recommend products and treatments based on your hair type, we can also suggest hairstyles that would be easier for you to manage during the summer.

If you have any questions, feel free to come by the unDONE salon or contact us at (208) 287-2010 to schedule a consultation.

Fantasy Haircolor by Heather Braswell

Fantasy Haircolor At unDONE Salon

Bright, vibrant, fantasy haircolors are all the rage and are in very high demand these days. Thanks to social media channels like Instagram and Pinterest, creative colors like blue, pink, purple, cotton candy, mint green, orange, etc., are being showcased using opal, oil slick, peek-a-boo, mermaid, rainbow, sunset, dip dye, and pastel hair coloring techniques. From soccer moms to CEO’s, the trend is not only growing but becoming increasingly “normal” as people from all different backgrounds choose to express their creative side using fun, vivacious haircolors.

Throughout history, wild haircolors have been used as a way for people to express themselves. With a dynamic rise in popularity, fantasy haircolors have also created a rise in acceptance. During the 1970’s, the punk movement helped separate people from mainstream society with fluorescent hair trends. Following that time during the 1980’s and 90’s, it wasn’t uncommon to see famous celebrities expressing themselves through different haircolor trends while influencing people to stand out from what was considered the “norm”.

Now, in 2017 men and women of all ages are loving the uniqueness of brightly colored hair. Pink and blue are no longer considered punk or any other status quo. In fact, at unDONE Salon, we see more and more clients of every age craving some adventure with their hair.

While not all employers find certain colors appropriate for a work setting, we’ve found ways to customize an exclusive color placement just for you. Why not have the best of both worlds? Our Boise hair salon stylists are trained in color placement and application so we can create a peek-a-boo look that’s only visible when you want it to be.

At unDONE Salon, we can provide you with the creative, and beautiful haircolor you’ve always dreamed about. Not only are our Boise hair salon stylists trained in the very latest haircolor techniques but can recommend the shampoo and hair products to ensure the longevity of your color. Whether you’re looking for vivid haircolor, fantasy haircolor, highlights, ombre, sombre, balayage, flamboyage, or something drastically new, our staff has got you covered! Call us at (208) 287-2010 or book your appointment online!

Boise Hair Salon Tips for People With Long Faces

Boise Hair Salon Tips for People With Long Faces

Change is good. But when it comes to getting a new hairstyle there are some important things to consider: hair type, facial features and most importantly, the shape of your face. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to finish off our face shape series this month by putting together a list of hairstyle tips for people with long faces.

Characteristics of a Long Shaped Face

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

  • Defined Cheekbones
  • High Forehead
  • Narrow, Smooth Jawline

When it comes to hairstyles for long face shapes, the aim of the game is to balance things out by making your face look rounder and more oval in shape. The last you want is something super harsh that accents the length of your face.

Bangs

Rounded or blunt bangs can really help to break up the length of your face. If you decide to go with the second option, the fullness and shine of blunt bangs can provide you with a much-appreciated youthful look. Long side bangs on the other hand, also help to balance the length of your face by partially covering your forehead.

Waves or Curls

More often than not, straight hair makes a face look longer. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE suggest women with longer faces add some waves or curls to their hair to create the illusion of width. If you have naturally curly hair, don’t ruin those gorgeous curls by straightening them out. Instead, try adding some layers to create additional texture.

Pixie Cuts

Pixie cuts are probably one of the best hairstyles for people with long faces because they help cut the length of the face, instantly making it appear shorter than it actually is. However, you don’t want to add any additional height to your forehead. Short pixies or pixies with spiky hair will only make your face look longer. Instead, longer, flatter pixies that sweep down in front of the ears are a perfect option.

Chin-Length Bobs

A bob that ends slightly below your chin is perfect for long-shaped faces as it creates the illusion of width. And, of course, you can give your hairstyle any effect you want with the perfect haircolor. From too casual to totally messy, a bob is an excellent way to style your hair!

*Tip: Don’t forget to add a few face-framing layers as they will help soften the look and boost the illusion of a shorter face.

Shoulder-Length Hairstyles

Perhaps the oldest trick in the book for those with longer faces is a shoulder-length hairstyle. In fact, it’s incredibly flattering. The trick to framing longer faces, however, is never to drag them down vertically. The goal rather is to give you a wider dimension by decreasing its length. For those with wavy or curly hair, a good hairstyle length is just below the shoulders. For those with straight, fine hair, keeping it above the shoulders is probably your best bet.

Boise Hair Salon Tips for Square Faced Hairstyles

Boise Hair Salon Tips for Square Faced Hairstyles

For those blessed with a square face, consider yourself lucky. A square face is a very common shape, especially among those of some big name celebrities. Unlike people with oval faces, however, you can’t get away with any hairstyle you want to try. But keep in mind there are plenty of sexy styles out there to compliment your square faced features. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have put together a list of tips for square faced hairstyles.

Characteristics of a Square Face

The characteristics of a square face include a squared jawline with the forehead, cheekbones, and jawline approximately the same width. People with a square face tend to hide their pronounced jawline with long, soft layered hairstyles that add an instant disguise. Waves and curls, on the other hand, are also known to soften your facial features while adding a touch of femininity to your style.

Whether you opt for a long or short hairstyle, it’s important to remember not to go too short or too long. In fact, the perfect hairstyle for a square face should measure just a few inches above or below the chin line.

Short Hairstyles Recommendations

At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend short or medium hairstyles with curls or waves for people with square faces. Wispy layers also work to soften your features while making your face appear longer. To pull off this look, think about adding some short layers that will add volume and height. Off center parts (either straight or diagonal) will also add a flattering twist to your hairstyle.

Bobs, on the other hand, are a little bit riskier. To pull off this particular hairstyle, we recommend a tapered bob with side swept fringes.

*If your hair is straight and mid-length, you may want to try using some rollers or a curling iron to add some gentle waves to your hair. Curls and waves work to soften your angular features instantly.

Long Hairstyles for Square Faces

Long hairstyles should be generally avoided by those with square face shapes as they will only accentuate your jawline. However, if you love long hair, try adding layers around your face to help soften the harsh angles of your jaw, nose and cheeks. Long layers that begin at the jaw and continue downwards will help to accentuate your best features. To top off this look, side swept fringes with look fabulous on you!

*For those that have long hair, it’s also important to avoid center parts, straight fringes, and a poker straight look. Instead, complement your best features by adding a side part and soft feminine waves.  

Square Faced Styles to Avoid

There are a few rules our Boise hair salon stylists have when it comes to what hairstyles look best on square shaped faces by taking into account the following:

  • Long straight styles will accentuate a square jaw line and should be avoided
  • Straight, full fringes or center parts will do nothing for your face shape.
  • Straight bobs or cuts ending at the jaw line should also be avoided.

Instead it’s important to keep your locks fuller with waves and added layers for extra body. Side swept fringe also works to detract attention from your angular features making them look more feminine. Bobs on the other hand should always be choppy and layered!

Other Factors to Consider

Taking into account the shape of your face is important when it comes to choosing the perfect hairstyle. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the above guidelines are just that – general guidelines – and that the shape of your face isn’t the only thing to take into consideration. Overall body, type, and length are just as important. If you are feeling stuck with the same old hairstyle, or you don’t think a new cut is working for you, it may be time to discuss some alternatives with your stylist.

In last week’s blog, we covered hairstyle tips for people with round faces. This week, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to extend the topic by offering some suggested guidelines for those genetically blessed with an oval or heart shaped face.  Oval Shaped Faces For those blessed with an oval face, good news! You can pull off just about any hairstyle you want. In fact, most people with different face shapes tend to style their hair to give the illusion that their face is more oval. However, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have a few tips when it comes to deciding what cut you might like to try.   Tip #1: Add Some Layers At unDONE, we recommend adding layers to really highlight the features you like most about yourself. Another suggestion? Try adding layers around your cheekbones, lips or chin to really frame your face and showcase your best features.    Tip #2: Change Things Up! A distinctive, modern cut or haircolor can really brighten things up and give you a new look! While we often like to keep our hairstyle the same because we’ve grown accustomed to it, wearing the same cut, style or color for years at a time can actually make us look older. At unDONE, we recommend choosing a new cut that fits your personality. Try adding some highlights or lowlights or think about trying a shorter style if you’ve always had long hair. However, it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist to help you choose the perfect look.   Tip #3: Embrace Your Natural Beauty If you’re happy with your look, it’s important to embrace your natural hair and texture. While it’s fun to straighten and curl your hair for special occasions, the time, money and damage aren’t always worth it. Instead, learn to love your natural beauty!  Heart Shaped Faces For those blessed with a heart shaped face, you more than likely have killer, sexy cheekbones. Heart-shaped faces tend to have a wider brow with a narrower chin. The good news? There is a variety of fun, elegant and simple haircuts that look wonderful on heart shaped faces.    Tip #1: Try A Long Bob A long bob is known to soften hard facial features. This shoulder length haircut can really frame your beautiful heart face and draw attention away from a strong jawline. In fact, a long bob can be particularly good for anyone who feels a little self-conscious about their prominent cheekbones or jawline.    Tip #2: Long, Side-Swept Bands Long, side-swept bands are a great choice for those who have a narrow chin. Opting for this look can help redirect attention from your chin and help soften your face. However, if you are thinking about going with a more blunt choice in bangs, make sure to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist about the width they recommend. You don't want to add addition width to your brow if you have a heart-shaped face.    Tip #3: Deep Side-Part If you want to open up your face and show off those amazing cheekbones, try going with a deep side-part. With some proper makeup techniques, this hairstyle will help showcase all the best features your face has to offer! Contact 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.

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Finding The Best Haircut For A Round Face

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Round Face Hairstyles

Who knew the shape of your face was so important when choosing the right hairstyle? Turns out, it’s quite the game changer! Just like your clothes, hairstyles aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why it’s important to take into account the shape of your face and talk with your Boise hair salon stylist so you don’t end up with a drastic cut that highlights all your worst features.

Hairstyles For A 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. If you happen to fall into this category, there are quite a few options to choose from depending on the style you’re looking to achieve. That’s why the stylists at unDONE Salon would like to offer some professional advice when it comes to matching a style to the shape to a round face.

15165229_3341

Professionally speaking, asymmetrical cuts look wonderful on people with round faces. By adding delicate, side-swept bangs that are a little off-centered with a side part, you can actually make your face look thinner.

rexfeatures-4081535ib-613x920

If you prefer a center part, however, your Boise hair salon stylist can provide you with long layers that come up towards your jaw line to offset the illusion of a wider forehead and cheeks. It’s important however to use products that control frizz and provide you with a sleek, finished look. Frizzy hair can make your face look rounder while adding unnecessary weight and bulk around your face.

Messy-Wavy-Hairstyles-A-Line-Bob-Haircut

For a haircut above the shoulders, the Boise hair stylists at unDONE recommend a messy bob. Bobs are quite fashionable and are a fantastic choice for those looking for a quick-to-style cut for a busy lifestyle. The best part? A messy bob is a great choice for those with naturally curly hair. However, loose waves work better than tight curls. Large or tight curls can actually make your face look even wider and round.  

15165520_6333

Pixie cuts, on the other hand, are great for round faces. While a pixie cut can be somewhat intimidating (especially if you’re used to having long hair) it’s important to keep in mind that it’s a simple to manage hairstyle. You will, however, need to schedule regular Boise hair salon visits to keep it at a proper and flattering length.

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Choosing the Right Hairstyle

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Choosing the Right Hairstyle

Choosing a new hairstyle can boost your confidence and change your life. While it’s easy to find a variety of hairstyles you like online, it’s important to find a hairstyle that is perfect for you. While nothing compares to the professional advice of a Boise hair salon stylist, we would like to provide you with a few basic guidelines to help you decide on the perfect look for your hair.

#1 Face Shape. When considering a new hairstyle, it’s important to determine the shape of your face. Do you have a round face, heart face, or long oval face? It’s all about framing your face to bring balance your overall features.

#2 Hair Texture. Certain hairstyles complement different hair textures. While we all want what we can’t have it’s important to make a reasonable decision when it comes to achieving the hairstyle we desire. Choosing a hairstyle based on your hair’s texture will not only provide you with a great style but make it easier to manage on a daily basis.

#3 Lifestyle. How much time to do you have to spend on your hair each day? While it’s fun to play up your features with a new look, it’s important to factor in your lifestyle and whether or not you will have the time to maintain a high-maintenance hairstyle each day.

#4 Play Down Flaws. In the same way a hairstyle can highlight certain features, it can also draw unwanted attention away from features you don’t like. For example, if you dislike the size of your neck, forehead or ears, you can choose a hairstyle that helps cover or downplay them.

#5 Haircolor. When it comes to a new hairstyle, a beautiful haircolor can transform your appearance making you feel fresh while boosting your self-confidence. Keep in mind, however, that picking the wrong haircolor can come with disastrous results. That’s why it’s important to ask your Boise hair salon stylist for advice when it comes to what they feel would be the best choice for your skin tone, hair type, etc.

Haircolor Correction at unDONE Salon

Haircolor Correction at unDONE Salon

Like a magic wand, a new haircolor can transform your drab, dull locks into glorious hair. Not only can it eliminate the signs of aging by covering pesky gray hairs, it can also provide in-depth shine and brilliant color. While haircolor has the marvelous power to transform a brunette into a blonde, a redhead into a raven beauty or vice versa, it can also come with a variety of drawbacks. Not all colors look good on everyone. In fact, the haircolor you decide to go with should depend on a variety of factors such as hair texture, facial features, complexion and haircolor trends.

Haircolor Disasters

Is your current haircolor already out of style? Do you regret copying the haircolor of your favorite celeb? Or did an experiment going from brunette to blonde fail miserably and now you have Oompa Loompa hair? It doesn’t matter if you dyed your hair at home using a DIY box haircolor or chose the highest priced hair salon in Boise, haircolor results can sometimes take a weird detour and come out in any hue (except the one you anticipated).  If this has happened to you, stop worrying and start thinking about a haircolor correction treatment at unDONE Salon. Our dedicated team of Boise hair salon stylists have seen it all and can help you recover from any haircolor disaster.

Haircolor Correction

Never try to tackle a haircolor disaster on your own. You need a talented Boise hair salon stylist to correct your haircolor. If you do try to correct your haircolor at home, you may end up making matters worse or even damage your hair. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists have perfected the technique of correcting haircolor without causing unwanted damage.

Keep in mind however, that haircolor correction is a process. While some color corrections can be done in a few hours, others need multiple treatments over a period of time. Achieving your desired haircolor depends on a variety of factors that include your current color, desired color, your hair’s porosity and how much time it takes to fix it.

While correcting a haircolor disaster can seem overwhelming, the team at unDONE Salon can help you achieve amazing results anytime you want to change your look. Our Boise hair salon stylists know the correct way to color your hair without damaging it in the process. No matter what shade or tint you want, we will customize a haircolor just for you. We promise personalized results every time!

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Why You Should Never Use DIY Box Haircolor

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Why You Should Never Use DIY Box Haircolor

It takes years for a Boise hair salon stylist to master the art of haircolor. Factors to take into consideration are formulas, hair type, hair condition, ratios, previous colors, etc. That’s why a stylist will always consult with you before picking and carrying out a desired look. Even then, it can take a few attempts to get the haircolor just right.  

At unDONE, we want you to feel good knowing your Boise hair salon stylist knows what their doing. We can help take the stress out of haircolor while providing you with a look  you can feel good about every time you look in the mirror. That’s why we’ve put together a list of reasons why you should never attempt a DIY haircolor:

YOUR HAIRCOLOR SHOULD ALWAYS MATCH YOUR SKIN TONE

When your Boise hair salon stylist mixes the perfect haircolor for your hair, they take the time to consider your natural skin tone among many other factors like underlying pigment, percentage of grey, etc. Your ideal haircolor will depend on the unique combination of these factors. DIY box haircolor is a one-size-fits-all solution that simply cannot take into account all of these elements.

DIY BOX HAIRCOLOR CANNOT PROVIDE EVEN APPLICATION

It’s important to understand that it’s virtually impossible to achieve an even, well-balanced look on your own. To create a natural look your Boise hair salon stylist applies haircolor from the re-growth line to the demarcation line. Color overlapping can lead to dark spots (banding) which looks unprofessional. Additionally, a stylist may use up to 10 different colors to achieve the look you want. That way they create a haircolor that is customized for you and only you.  

DIY BOX HAIRCOLOR CAN BE DAMAGING

Many DIY box haircolors contain harsh ingredients that can strip your hair and damage the cuticles. Instead, a Boise hair salon stylist  will choose a formula with the lowest peroxide to achieve shine tone while minimizing damage. They will also use products to balance PH levels to lock in haircolor to prevent it from fading. DIY box hair color can leave you with hair that looks and feels like straw. Once your hair has been destroyed, it can take a long time, and a lot of money to repair it.

THE COLOR ON THE BOX IS NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE

Ever stood in front of a selection of dyes with a million haircolor ideas running through your head? Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous celebrities on the box. The truth is a stylist professionally dyed their hair, and in reality less than 5% of people using box haircolor will actually get what they want.  In fact, your hair can turn a hideous orange when you were only looking to lighten it by one shade. That’s why it’s important to understand that a one-size-fits-all haircolor may not react as it should on certain hair types. Do you really want to take that chance?

IT WILL COST YOU $$$ IN THE LONG RUN

That $10 DIY box haircolor won’t feel that affordable after a $200 color correction on your orange hair. Instead, talk to your stylist when it comes to making an informed, and educated decision when it comes to your desired haircolor. Not only will they factor in your natural hair type & texture, they can adjust formulas based on its condition. A professional haircolor will leave you with much healthier & beautiful hair compared to the dull and drying appearance that comes out of a box.
