Hair is Like a Canvas

By Sheila Venancia

Your hair is a canvas that can project your persona, be it a rich caramel or candy floss pink; and if you are feeling bold, you could always get a fiery red or an electric blue.

To get these lovely colors in your tresses, you will have to lighten your hair so when you apply the color, it will be effervescent. The coloring process opens up the cuticles and gives room for the new color pigments to be deposited and give better, even results. The latest trend that has taken over is ‘fallayage’ which is essentially a warm waterfall look which gives your lovely tresses dimension and shine.

We’ve all seen our favorite celebrities changing their fashion style; they are also always sporting a new hairstyle, cut and color which can inspire you to get creative ideas to give to your hair stylist. Celebrities like Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Kim Kardashian to name a few, use the procedure known as a freehand technique and the idea is to create soft natural looks.

As a Hair Stylist and Master Colorist myself I had been interested in arts from a very young age and tying the two passions together. I paint hair as I paint canvas. I tend to color hair much the same way I color a canvas, using the same sorts of color application techniques and identical color theory. I envision the strands of hair to be like ribbons and determine how the light will hit different areas, creating shadows and highlights.

Color and dye are two very commonplace words in the world of hair coloring today. There are many who use the words interchangeably as if dye is a synonym of color. However, this is not correct as despite their similarities there are many differences between color and dye.

Only a century earlier, dyes were used to color fabrics only. Dyes have a connotation of being harder than a hair color today and are rarely used, whereas all beauty product companies prefer to use the word hair color for their products.

Women have been coloring their hair with natural dyes long before modern synthetic hair colors and hair dyes arrived on the scene. Most of the hair colors and hair dyes available in the market today owe their existence to the discovery made by French chemist Eugene Schueller working on the compound called p-phenylenediamine that had the ability to stick to the hair shaft and color it. This compound is invariably present in all coloring products along with ammonia and peroxide in varying proportions.

It is a fact that not that long ago women resorted to dying their hair only when it turned grey because of age, quite unlike today when one can see both men and women making use of hair color to catch attention of opposite sex and to look and feel confident. This may have something to do with modern day celebrities coloring their hair in shades that look very alluring though they use colors that are not found naturally on the heads of the people.

Women see a strong connection between their femininity and the color of their hair.
