Vivid hair is at its best when it is applied to pre-lightened hair.  The lighter or blonder the hair is, the truer the vivid will be. The lightening process should be coupled with a bond builder like Olapex or Brazilian Bonder B3, to preserve the integrity of the hair will it is being lifted.

What is a Semi Permanent Color?

The colors used for this service are semi permanent.  This means that vivid colors or direct dyes sit on top of the hair shaft.  The color molecules of these fantasy colors are too large to fit in the cortex of the hair like traditional hair color. This means that everytime vivid hair is washes, the color will bleed.

We recommend having darker towels, sheets and pillowcases. Eventually vivid colors fade out over all. The more the hair is washed, the quicker the vivid color fades.

There are color tones that last longer than others.  Deeper jewel tones last longer than pastel and opalescent tones.  Warmer tones like magenta and purple last longer than blues and greens. To ensure the longevity of vivid colors, clients need to:
