How Do I Make My Hair Color Dimensional?

January 28, 2021

Dimensional hair color can work wonders for your style. If you do it right, dimensional hair coloring will make your hair look like it has more volume, shine and natural depth and vibrancy. It’s an extremely popular salon service in the Anchorage, AK area and elsewhere, but it’s not as straight forward as traditional hair dyeing.

Dimensional hair coloring essentially creates the optical illusion of depth and thickness by applying two to three shades of the same color to hair. It’s a complicated technique to get right, so it’s best to leave it to professionals unless you’re very experienced at dyeing hair. Here are some dimensional hair coloring ideas and tips to consider before your next trip to Studio FX Hair Design LLC.

Who benefits from dimensional hair color?

While dimensional hair color works for all kinds of hair, from blonde to black, it looks especially good on darker hair. Dimensional hair dyeing will make your hair glow in sunlight with a visual lamination effect. It’s a great dyeing option for those with weak or damaged hair because it’s less harsh and requires fewer touchups than other kinds of treatments.

Trust the professionals

Dimensional hair color is not cheap, but that’s because it’s extremely hard to do. Choosing the correct colors for your hair and applying them correctly are both difficult. It takes an experienced stylist to create smooth and natural transitions between the different shades in dimensional hair color. The results can look terrible if you don’t do it right, so it’s best not to try this at home.

Caring for your dimensionally dyed hair

With any expensive hair treatment, the way you care for your hair will influence how long the effects last. Always take the advice of your personal stylist when it comes to hair care choices. Some good places to start are to avoid lengthy exposure to sunlight and scorching your hair with harsh, rapid drying practices. Both of these will cause your color to fade prematurely and will make your beautiful, vibrant dimensional color become dull and lifeless before its time.

Treat your hair gently and your dimensional hair color will last longer. Use color-safe shampoos and conditioners, and consider getting a hydrating mask to treat your hair in addition to your regular routine. Your hair care products should be sulfate and paraben free, and you should wash your hair every two days at most. Ideally, you should only wash your hair a couple times a week, avoiding hot water.

Bonus for balayage

Balayage is a more natural looking highlighting technique that works well when introducing dimensional hair color, especially with very dark hair. Balayage is a technique that involves your stylist hand painting the hair dye directly onto your hair rather than using more exact foils to color the hair. This makes it easy to blend the colors in a natural way.
