All Over Color: Everything You Need to Know

Are you considering changing up your hair color?

One option you may be considering is all over color. All over color, as the name suggests, is a coloring technique that involves dyeing your entire head of hair one shade. It can be a dramatic change or a subtle update, depending on the shade you choose. In this blog post, we'll cover everything you need to know about all over color, from choosing the right shade to caring for your newly colored hair.

Choosing the Right Shade

The first step in getting all over color is choosing the right shade. When selecting a shade, there are a few things to consider:

  1. Your skin tone - Your skin tone can affect how certain shades look on you. As a general rule, if you have warm undertones, you'll want to choose warm shades like gold, honey, or copper. If you have cool undertones, you'll want to choose cooler shades like ash or platinum.

  2. Your natural hair color - If you're looking for a subtle change, choose a shade that's only a few shades lighter or darker than your natural hair color. If you're looking for a dramatic change, you can choose a shade that's significantly lighter or darker than your natural hair color.

  3. Your lifestyle - Consider how much time and effort you're willing to put into maintaining your new hair color. If you're low maintenance, choose a shade that's close to your natural hair color so you won't have to touch it up as often.

Preparing Your Hair

Before getting all over color, it's important to prepare your hair to ensure the color takes evenly and lasts as long as possible. Here are some tips for preparing your hair:

  1. Don't wash your hair the day of your appointment - This will help your scalp retain some natural oils that will protect your hair during the coloring process.

  2. Avoid using styling products - Styling products can leave a residue on your hair that can interfere with the coloring process.

  3. Get a trim - Trimming your hair before coloring can help remove any damaged or split ends, which can prevent the color from taking evenly.

Caring for Your New Color

Once you've got your new all over color, it's important to care for it properly to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Here are some tips for caring for your new color:

  1. Use color-safe products - Use shampoos and conditioners that are specifically designed for color-treated hair.

  2. Avoid hot water - Hot water can strip your hair of its natural oils, which can cause your color to fade faster.

  3. Protect your hair from the sun - Sun exposure can cause your hair color to fade, so wear a hat or use a hair product with UV protection when you're spending time outdoors.

All over color can be a great way to change up your look and add some vibrancy to your hair. By choosing the right shade, preparing your hair, and caring for your new color, you can ensure that your new hair color lasts as long as possible and looks great. If you're considering all over color, consult with your hairstylist to get personalized advice and recommendations for your specific hair type and desired look.
