If you color your hair, you’ve been in this situation before. You have a hot date, a special event or maybe a vacation coming up and you’re in between highlight appointments. You probably only have three to five weeks of regrowth but your color is beginning to appear a little dull and flat—grays might be peeking through. The easy answer would be to push your color appointment up a little early but that’s time consuming and expensive. Trying to tackle the problem yourself with at-home color ruin your professional color and leave you looking worse than before. So what do you do?
Flash Color is a great option according to Frank Friscioni, co-director of color at Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City and owner/partner at Frank Cassi Beauty in Palm Beach, FL. Rather than getting full color (which can cost hundreds of dollars) you can have a Flash Color and a gloss for $115. With Flash Color, you’ll have your color (and confidence) restored and you won’t need it done again for another six to eight weeks. But the best part is the Flash process takes 10 minutes or less.
Flash color is achieved by giving the hair a few levels of lift and controlling warmth with the right color. This helps to blend the highlights and create fast results for a blended scalp color, alleviating the appearance of harshness between the natural new growth and highlighted color.
Your root color is “flashed” one to two shades lighter than before your original color treatment. The effect is a brighter color. “I like to refer to it as a sunny day because that is what you’re getting: a sunny day,” says Friscioni, the man behind the flash. Friscioni says it’s most common with blondes but the same can be done with brunettes. “I’ve done it on mostly women, of course, but even the occasional man,” Friscioni adds.
Flash color is a quick and easy fix for grown-out roots. “Flash Color is excellent for the client who wants those roots blended. It is a way to achieve a fresh look,” says Friscioni. Wondering if you’re a candidate for Flash Color? Join Friscioni for a consultation.
