    Dimensional Hair Color: The Blending of Several Colors

    Dimensional hair color combines different hues on the same hair

    Think your hair color has the blahs? It’s time to take a dimensional hair color approach! To achieve a hair color that’s artistic, unique and always complementary to the cut—not to mention ultra-striking—you need to combine more than one color in the same family into a blend. For instance, Colleen Hennessey a Clairol Professional Color Master and Color Director at Adam Broderick Salon in Ridgefleld, CT, mixes up high lights, slicing and alternating color to flatter and harmonize with all lengths of hair. Toffee is accented with buttery blonde, copper enhances toffee and bright red stands out against darker richer shades.

    Anytime you combine lights and darks, decide if you want a natural or dramatic effect. If you stay within the same color family and use slightly lighter or darker hues, the effect is subtler. For drama, blend blonde, red and brunette hair colors. Whatever your choice, never choose more than three colors—the result will be too crazy.

    In the salon, your hair colorist can determine the best hair color placement. At home, it’s best to accent hair with a single shade that’s close to your own and start out slowly. Test the color underneath the nape first to see how it turns out. Then apply it to a few, very fine sections in front and see what you get. Like the look? Maintain it, or heighten the effect during your next salon visit.
