Freshen Up Your Grey?

Postet av Berit Torkildsen den 2. Okt 2014

My mum has 'always' been blonde, although in recent years I think the highlights she has had to have to maintain her blonde locks could disprove that she is 'naturally' blonde! Like everyone else, when you age, (whether young or old), your hair changes colour, usually gets darker, then lighter. My mum is now at a point where she has lots of different shades of grey and white, which I personally find to be beautiful in its own right. However, after a long summer full of sunshine, her hair had gone very light, with a brassy tone in her lengths. I decided to take her hair color down a notch, something that could be preceived as her natural hair color.

Color Camo by Redken is marketed as a 'mens' hair color. (mainly because most woman prefer to colour their greys completely) It has been developed for those who wish to keep their white/grey hair at bay while maintaining a natural look. It takes a mere five minutes to process, no longer than a normal shampoo session. 

So if you are in doubt as to what to do with your color after a long summer in the sun, perhaps a quick Color Camo is for you...

Go Natural?

Postet av Berit Torkildsen den 18. Jul 2014

A friend/client decided to stop colouring her hair a few years back, she said she will eventually colour it again, but for now, she liked the idea of having what her 'mamma gave her.' It got me thinking. I haven't seen my natural colour for the bones of 17 years. (With the exception of when I had a shaved head)

As a colourist I hear a lot of clients wanting to do the same, but they don't have the patience to let it grow out. I also feel that if you highlight the regrowth a little so that the hard line is softened, you will still end up with a what do you do?

The answer is easy. L'Oreal Professional has a semi-permanent hair colour (Dia Light) that colours only previously colourtreated hair! What does that mean for you? It means that you can colour your entire head, including the regrowth, without worry. Your regrowth will remain its natural colour, and the rest will be matched! Easy peasy. 

I had 20 mintues to spare today, so I decided to test it out. I am super pleased with the result! I am surprised at how dark I am, but hey, that's me! Dark mysterious gal and all...

Feeling the Heat?

We are called Adam og Eva for a reason...
We love our male clientelle just as much as we do the gals, so when Gunnar came in last week in dire need of a cut, I was more than happy to help! The poor guy was so hot under all that hair, but was under strict orders from the misses to keep his viking-like beard...

Here he is, trimmed up and ready for the rest of what we hope will be a long warm summer in the land of the midnight sun!

If you are feeling the heat and need some expert help, call the shop! TLF: 22 60 32 28. I loves me some beards! 


Time for Change

Kaja is a fun loving trusting gal who has followed me for the bones of 8 years. She sent me a message last week saying she was sick of the dark hair and wanted to go lighter with golden/copper tones. Me being up for anything was on it! After 4,5 hours last Thursday, we came up with a warm blonde, medium length shag! She loved it, and I have to say I was pretty pleased too!

Time for a change? Book online or call the salon and ask for me!


Relaxer (Anti-Permanent)

Are you sick of your curls or frizz? Then look no further. A relaxer can make your daily routine hassle free, with no blow drying and straightening. Greta came in today for a touch up on her last relaxer that we did for her back in October. In addition to the relaxer she wanted to get rid of a lot of her length. The after picture is taken with no use of irons, only me blow drying lightly with a brush. At home she will be able to air dry her hair. A true wash and go style!
