Why You Should Try a Color Melt for Summer

What Is a Color Melt? “A color melt is a dimensional look that has a lived-in feel with brightness around the face and absolutely no hard lines of demarcation,” Adams explains. “The color literally melts in gradation from dark to light.” If you’ve never highlighted your hair before it’s a great first step. “You can introduce yourself to color or try something different,” she says. “It’s easy and chic.” Customized Color One reason this look is so popular is its versatility. “It can work on any haircolor,” she says. Whether you’re warm, cool, caramel, or copper, a color melt is a great way to add personalized dimension to your haircolor. “If your skin tone is warm, look for warmer colors. […]

Why does my haircolor fade after only 2 weeks?

QUESTION: Clients will ask, “Why does my hair color fade after only 2 weeks?” ANSWER: 99% of stylists answer with “your hair just doesn’t hold color.” In reality there are several reasons why hair color fades, most of which can be controlled. Example: Your stylist will tell you, “I’ll pull your color through your ends to freshen it up” when in fact permanent hair color should only be applied to your hair’s mid-shaft and ends one time. Pulling it through over and over perpetuates the problem of fading by opening up your hair’s cuticle layer causing your color to “just fall out.” A BETTER ANSWER: (MATTHEW ROBERT’S SOLUTION) The best formulation is to use our conditioning semi-permanent hair color designed […]

Why should you invest in professional haircolor?

As warmer months arrive so does the desire to dump those dark, dingy, winter locks and move into a brighter, lighter you. We all know the convenience of that magical little drugstore box that promises “it all” looks inviting. However, the results are not controllable as some are formulated with high amounts of ammonia. This can give you the wrong results not matter what level or tone you are starting with. A rule of thumb is “haircolor cannot lift previous haircolor,” so now its time to seek a professional. We understand that seeing a professional is a bit more expensive, but how much do those jeans cost that you wear once a week? Your haircolor is an investment in a […]

What is the right haircut for me?

Your face is the key starting point to defining a hair style that is best for you. Determining the shape of your face is not as easy as it may seem and many of us have preconceived notions about our face shape which are typically not based on fact. A few extra pounds lends us to believe that our face is round, however those few extra winter pounds don’t affect the foundation of bone structure and shape. The ideal face shape is oval, but only about 10% of people have this shape. The correct approach is to determine if your exposing an ideal head shape, or building one. At Matthew Robert Color + Design Salon, the designers are trained in […]

Give Your Hair Muscles

A number of my guests have asked me if there is anything they can take to help strengthen their hair to promote growth and enhance thickness. Throughout my research I have found a few essential vitamins and foods that can help in this battle. Vitamin B7, or more commonly called, Biotin, is one of eight essential vitamins your body needs. If your diet consists of highly processed foods, are recovering from illness, or if you just had a baby, you may be experiencing a lack of Biotin. When your body is depleted of essential vitamins it will divert the limited supply away from non-essential processes such as hair growth and you may find extra Biotin will aid in your hair […]
