Hair Colour: Roots

Status Shades
The first rule is never to look as though you are trying. Gorgeous hair never looks as if it has been dyed. Perfect colour translates to wisp thin highlights that don't start close to the scalp. A weaving of several intensities of colour so no one streak is obvious. The result is natural looking colour and low maintenance. New growth doesn't require monthly visits to the salon. Keeping colour within a couple of shades lighter or darker than your own keep the roots from showing.Honey brown hair is ideal for sunny highlights that can start half an inch from the roots. Most of the lightening is concentrated from the middle of the shaft down.
This is an ideal coloring technique for mom's to be, busy mom's and working girls.

Thicker Hair

Volume! Volume! Volume!
Free Samples
Yes you can have thicker hair. These easy steps will show you how.The most important thing is a good haircut. One that builds body and volume into fine, thin hair. A good cut has a firm foundation. Something to build on. Cutting hair is like making a sculpture. The hair is your medium. Our models hair is cut into a Savage Haircut with Volumtechnics. All she has to do is put a little product in her hair, blow dry it and go.
The next step is product. You can get products that make your hair thicker. By increasing the diameter of the hair you increase the volume.
Start with shampoo. It is important to use a shampoo that cleans the hair and leaves it full and shiny. Judaysia VS Volumizing Shampoo is made in small batches with natural ingredients. It is a great everyday shampoo. It cleans, shines and protects the hair. You want all the product to wash out of your hair. This prevents build up. You also want your scalp to be healthy. Some shampoos are so harsh and drying they actually break the hair off. Shampoo made with botanical ingredients are a better choice. They do not have to be all natural because sometimes its not the wise choice. Too much protein can make the scalp flake. The right blend makes all the difference.
Thickening products are best used after towel drying the hair before styling. Judaysia Thic is the best product for thickening the hair. The natural botanical formula increases the diameter of the hair making it thicker and fuller. Thic never builds up.It can be used everyday. Thic also gives your hair more volume and body while holding your set. I use it all the time in the salon. It is the one product I cannot live without. If you have a good cut and the right product all the work is done for you. You just need to do a little finishing.
For a limited time I am offering free samples of Judaysia VS Volumizing Shampoo and Judaysia Thic. To receive them send 2.00 to cover the packing and post to;
Judaysia P.O. Box 1655 Agoura Hills Ca. 91376. You will receive a half ounce bottle of shampoo and a .07 ounce bottle of Thic . Include your address.

Red Alert: Lips

Matte Red
Lady like lipstick returns this season. Red lips go with every hair colour.
To Get The Look:
For a perfectly polished pout trace a lip pencil along the line of the lips. I like Nars Red Square pencil. Do not go over the lip line, even if you have small lips. Next use a lip brush to apply dense matte colour, before gently pushing it into the lips with your fingertips for a long lasting look. Try Nars Heat Wave. Matte lips are in. Gloss is out. Try a nail polish in a matching shade.

Fall 07 Choppy Bob

Get The Chop
Fall into the chop. Choppy bob with a heavy fringe.
The season's new look. Hair has been cut with alot of heavy layers. Keep the classic look modern with super straight locks and a fringe that skims the brow.

Temporary and Semi-Permanent Haircolour

Ask Judaysia
Dear Judaysia, What is the difference between temporary and semi -permanent hair colour? Jean
Dear Jean, A temporary colour like Roux Fanci-Ful is a colour that will last one shampoo. It is a product you can use to cover roots until you can get a touch up. It can also be used to correct unwanted tones in your hair colour until you can have it corrected. Semi-permanent haircolor color is designed to wash out within a designated number of shampoos. It depends on the product used. Some last longer than others. Be careful with semi-permanent haircolour. It can build up on the hair shaft and look coated.

Hair Colour At Home

Ask Judaysia
Dear Judaysia, Can you give me some tips on colouring my own hair.
It comes out too dark. I am using Loreal Paris hair colour.I am a natural brunette and want to cover some grey.Thank you.
Maria K. Boca Raton, Fl.
Dear Maria, It is a good idea to stay close to your colour when you do it yourself. The trick is to chose the right colour. Most women think they are much darker than they are. You should choose a shade which is two shades lighter than what you beleive you are. Try to stick with neutral or warm shades for a more natural look. If your grey is sprinkled through your hair, try combing it on just where the grey is. Loreal is a good at home product. Use a shampoo that is formulated for color treated hair.Always condition your hair after colouring.
