Understanding Hair Color

Hair Color Categories: Permanent, Semi-Permanent, and Demi-Permanent

Choosing the Right Hair Color

Selecting the perfect hair color involves considering factors such as your skin tone and eye color. The right hair color can enhance natural features, create balance, and bring out the best in one's complexion. Understanding whether you have cool, warm, or neutral undertones in your skin can help determine which shades will complement your features best. 

By considering factors such as undertones in the skin and the hues of the eyes, individuals can choose shades that highlight their unique beauty. For instance, warmer tones like golden blonde or rich caramel can complement olive or warm-toned skin, while cooler shades like ash blonde or chestnut brown may suit those with cooler undertones. Similarly, eye color plays a crucial role in determining which hair colors will pop or blend seamlessly. By harmonizing hair color with skin tone and eye color, individuals can achieve a cohesive and polished appearance that accentuates their natural beauty. 

Our experienced hair colorists at Aveda Bethesda are skilled at identifying the most flattering hues for each client, ensuring a customized and natural-looking result.

Advice on Maintaining Radiant Hair Color

To keep your hair color looking radiant and vibrant, proper maintenance is key. Our experts at Aveda Bethesda can provide personalized tips and advice on how to prolong the longevity of your color. Using sulfate-free and color-safe shampoos and conditioners can help maintain color intensity and prevent premature fading. Additionally, washing hair less frequently, ideally with cool water, can reduce color stripping and preserve the integrity of the dye. It's also beneficial to protect hair from environmental stressors such as sunlight and heat styling by using UV-protective products and minimizing exposure to high temperatures.

We offer a range of specially formulated hair care products designed to nourish and protect color-treated hair, ensuring lasting beauty and shine. Remember, our formulas are made with natural and plant-based ingredients, free from harsh chemicals and additives.
