Lisa says “Oh dear! Poor Katie Price. I love a girl who is up for brave colour changes but the break neck speed with which she moves from brunette to blonde has been deeply harrowing for her hair.
As a long term user of hair extensions and a big lover of big colour statements, Katie’s scalp is rebelling and the results are nothing less than disastrous. There are a few golden rules of style that must be respected here. Extensions are a great choice for adding length, volume and colour.
At Lisa Shepherd we use Racoon high quality extensions to do just that and we can either select or colour them to achieve the desired impact. BUT, we always make sure that the bonding techniques we use reflect the strength and health of our client’s hair and scalp. Extensions require regular maintenance and careful handling to prevent traction alopecia which is where constant tugging can cause hair loss.
For a short term change to style, temporary extensions can prove to be an excellent and fun choice. When moving through BIG colour transformations accept that your hair will be bleached to rid the shaft of existing pigment before adding a fresh colour. Clients considering this should plan to cluster a few colour appointments to pack in the pigment and add depth in the early days of the new shade. Also don’t forget the condition.
Complete transformations include more than one colour process which temporarily disrupts the moisture balance in the hair which should be lavishly restored through lots of TLC at home and in the salon. So don’t be a Katie Price style crash and make sure you see the RIGHT professional for the job.”
