Change of Seasons

This lovely pastel blonde was transformed from delicately warm to cool with a gentle, silver and violet formula. Jennifer Andrews, Creative Consultant for Organic Salon Systems

Transitioning from autumn to winter to spring hues—all over the course of a few months—takes strategic planning.

If you don't do this well in advance, hair could undergo too many radical color shifts and sustain serious damage.

Our model's hair was colored a delicate warm beige for the fall season and then lightened one level and cooled a bit for winter.

We then added a more dramatic violet/purple shadowing for mid-winter, which could easily be removed or lightened for the upcoming spring season without resorting to harsh chemicals. (
