Teasylights are subtle highlights that give a rooty, natural finish. This style of highlights is perfect for those wanting a ‘lived in’ hair colour effect that doesn’t look like you’ve just stepped out of a salon!

Teasylights can be used in combination with babylights and root melting to create a beautiful light blonde balayage effect – perfect for those who struggle to get enough lift, or those wanting a cooler/ashier finish to their blonde. 

Platinum Blonde Hair Colour

Platinum blonde, silver grey and ice white hair colours are on-trend hair colours that will ensure you turn heads for the right reason!  Remember though that a dramatic hair colour change should be left to the hairs colour specialists. If you do experience a hair colour problem then we also offer hair colour correction services at Alexander James, hair salons, Solihull & Halesowen.

While these colours are beautiful they require the most maintenance and so regular toner appointments and all of the best homecare are essential to keep them looking fresh and healthy.

Highlights, Lowlights & Babylights

An exciting new hair colour could be just what you need to breathe fresh life into your look so why not visit the L’Oréal hair colour specialists in Solihull & Halesowen’s Alexander James hair salon and transform your hair colour?

Using foils to add highlights or lowlights to hair is often regarded as one of the most natural looking hair colour techniques. By applying multiple colours and shades to a few strands of hair at a time, we can create multi-tonal, three-dimensional hair colour.

Highlights are perfect for creating those sun-kissed hues, honey blondes and ash blonde colours. Lowlights really add depth to hair colour and can be used to create some subtle but striking hair colours.

Root Melts, Root Stretching & Colour Melts

Colour melting is a popular colouring technique that blends strategically placed highlights to achieve maximum effect.

The highlights are blended or ‘melted’ away from the root with a shade almost identical to your natural colour so there are no harsh lines between the different shades. 

We can ‘stretch’ or ‘drag’ out your roots, adding multi-dimensional shades, growing lighter towards the ends of your hair. No matter if you’re looking for a blonde, brunette, or red colour melt, or want a root stretch that blends the root colour with balayage tones, lowlights or highlights we have you covered at Alexander James.

Fashion Hair Colours

If you are looking for the latest fashion hair colours, look no further than our top hair colour salon in Solihull.  We can create an array of bespoke hair colours including silver grey hair colour, pretty pastel hair tones and vibrant blues, reds and purple hair shades.

Colour glosses are also a great way in which to temporarily change your hair colour. Preferably used on lighter coloured hair to give a semi-permanent hair colour of between 1 & 20 washes.

When you’ve had your hair pre-lightened, or highlighted a toner may be needed to naturalise any unwanted yellow or brassy tones. To get a cool ash blonde, you need to lift with pre-lightener to the correct level then tone to neutralise and get the correct tone. Which is why we call it a toner.

Pastel tones will last from 1 – 5 washes whereas our more vibrant shades can last up to 20 depending on homecare and the condition of the hair.

Colour Glossing & Toners

When hair is pre-lightened or highlighted a toner will be needed to create your final colour.

When we lighten hair we call the colour result of this ‘raw lift’. Raw lift will always be warmer from orange to pale yellow (and anything in between, depending on how light you want to go) and so we use toners to neutralise any unwanted tones created during the lifting process.

This gives us your final colour result which may be anything from cool ash blonde to reds and coppers depending on your preference.
