So you want to go GREY?

I hear this often in the salon "I would quit coloring my hair if I had that pretty grey" or "I can't stand my roots but I'm not ready to go grey"

What I am actually hearing is "I am curious about what I would look like if I stopped coloring my hair".

This is a wig - try it on, don't be shy! (I think she was a little ;)

There are many reasons why people stop coloring their hair: time, money, allergies, age, just to name a few.

What if I told you there is a painless way to go grey?

Would you be interested? Would you say "NO WAY".

Notice how her natural grey grow out is completely blended. I did that.

It is possible.

Here is the back story.

Early in my career, I had a platinum blonde, bleach and tone client come in for a touch up. I had just read an article about how Marylin Monroe got her famous color.

I tried it, and it turned her hair GREY. OOPS.

Now this was before that silver hair trend, we were just starting to see it on the runways but, definitely not on the street. I was able to fix my client's hair and she went on her merry way, but I had stumbled upon something.

An Idea was born.

Not long after that fateful color, we entered the "Great Recession" of 2008. I started to get a lot of clients who wanted to stop coloring their grey hair because they could no longer afford the up-keep and they certainly couldn't take time off to come in to the salon.

I took that (fateful) grey formula out of my back pocket, and with a little tweaking, I developed a method to help my clients ease the pain of growing out their grey.

The Grey Hair Transition has many forms, it can be simple or it can even be a rainbow!

The Grey Hair Transition method can generally be completed in 3 sessions.

Most people find a comfortable place to stay after the 3rd session. Some even let their hair be grey and keep it that way. There are so many options to choose from and still incorporate the grey, check these out:
