Classic Brunette shades look amazing on just about everyone and come in a breathtaking array of shades from sweet caramel to warm chestnut to smoking hot umber and spicy ginger. The trick is avoiding the drab side of brown – you know what we mean – the monotone look that lacks the subtle gradations and nuances that only a master colorist can impart. The best brunette shades glimmer with glamour and add drama through the deep intensity of their shadings.
Always warmly appealing and approachable, yet simmering with a touch of mystery, the chic brunette look is a top choice for women and men alike. Book an appointment to find out how brunette can work for you.
THE BLONDE BOMBSHELL
In order to look as if you were born blonde, the hair color must be multi-tonal. The light should appear to emanate from within, not painted on…a true give-away that your blonde tresses are man-made. The process results in undertones of deep honey enhanced with golden or strawberry blonde hues, or perhaps a base of pale hazelnut streaked with both copper and gold highlights that are balanced together with layers of complimentary shadings. Only a master colorist can create such an effect – that blonde that looks too natural to be a fake.
This color is surprisingly easy to maintain. Let one of our master colorists turn you into a natural-looking blonde by clicking here for an appointment.
RED HAIRED BEAUTY
RED is what’s happening now, but you must always ask yourself: Will Red Work for Me?
The best gauge is your skin tone. If you have a rosy, pink complexion, red works best for you. That is not to say that others cannot sport this color-of-the-moment, but if your skin is more on the olive side, red would not be your best choice.
If you and your colorist decide that red would work for you, here are some tips as well as caveats:
1. Keep your hair in excellent condition because dry hair tends to lose its red color faster than other shades. Keep it moist with a weekly dose of Bollei Blends Balm or restore its silky condition before you go red with Bollei Blends Antidote. You should also have your ends trimmed on a regular basis.
2. Since dry hair is enemy #1 to redheads, shampoo your hair either twice weekly or if your hair is super oily, every other day. Shampoo with Bollei Blends Damage Control (for color treated hair) or Refresh (for all hair types). Always avoid harsh shampoos since they especially speed up the color fading time.
3. Wear hats and/or scarves to protect your hair color from the destructive UV rays. (Red hair oxidizes in a New York minute!)
4. Avoid those unnatural-looking purplish-reds – opt for the more alluring coppery, auburn or strawberry tones. Let a Gerard Bollei® Salon Master Colorist custom design just the right red for you. Book an appointment today.

Our goal is to make you look your best while maintaining (or restoring) your hair’s health and vitality.
To this end, Gerard Bollei® Salon offers complimentary, no obligation, consultations that allows you to meet with one of our color experts to discuss your options and find out the costs associated with those options. So, whether you are looking to color your hair for the first time and are not sure where or how to begin, or whether you have been coloring your hair for years and are looking for a change but don’t know what color would look best on you, book a complimentary consultation now. What are you waiting for? There’s no obligation.
