Single Process and Semi-Permanent/Demi-Permanent Color
Single process color involves the application of permanent, semi-permanent or demi-permanent color to the entire head to create a new base color. The difference between each of these types of color is how much of a change you’re looking for and the length of time you want the color to last.
If you want a more dramatic change (2 or more shades lighter or darker) than your natural hair color, then permanent color is the way to go. Only permanent color will cover gray hair and won’t wash out. Your roots will need to be re-touched about every 4-6 weeks.
If you’re looking to subtly deepen your natural hair color or add a layer of color (such as a red tone to brown hair) a semi (or demi) permanent color is your best option. These will darken – not lighten – hair because of smaller amounts of ammonia and peroxide. They are also more gentle on the hair than permanent color. Semi-permanent color washes out over a period of time (6-12 shampoos, depending upon the formula) so works well if temporary color is what you’re looking for. It can subtly deepen your natural hair color or add a layer of color (such as a red tone on brown hair). It has the additional benefit of not showing noticeable roots. Demi-permanent color will provide you with longer-lasting color than semi-permanent color. It washes out after 12-26 washes and can deepen and intensify your natural color.
Double Process Color
A high-lift color can lift up to four levels of natural color and simultaneously will deposit color. Double process color has a higher ammonia content to enable us to exceed four levels of color lift.
Going lighter in color takes more than a single process permanent color can accomplish if you’re looking to be a golden or platinum blonde. We apply a color lightener to remove natural color from the hair and then apply a toner for color.
We use partial highlights to draw attention to certain features, accentuate a style, or create a new look for a simple cut.

Partial and Full Highlights
Highlights are great for mimicking the beautiful light strands that are associated with “sun kissed” hair. When applied to dirty blonde or mousy brown hair, highlights transform these colors into shades that are rich, beautiful and alluring.
With full highlights, we evenly highlight your entire head to break up color that may be too flat or one-dimensional. We often apply highlights in two or more different shades – either with shades lighter than the base color (and one shade lighter than the other) or with one shade being lighter and one darker than the base color. The latter style of highlighting is called “dimensional coloring” and is used to produce a more natural and pleasing look.
