Taking Baby Steps Toward Ombre Hair With Jan-Marie Arteca

Well, my fabulous colorist, Jan-Marie Arteca, has done it again. I went in for a (long overdue) appointment with her at her brand-new salon, Jeff Chastain Parlor, about a week ago -- and came out with, of course, the best color ever.

This time, I decided I wanted to try ombre hair color. And while I was thinking of making it pretty crazy, taking it from auburn all the way to blonde, Jan-Marie suggested toning it down a bit and giving it a more subtle look. We did start with auburn at the roots, and made it continually lighter and brighter down the hair shaft. Jan-Marie finished with a gloss for added shine, and I got to luxuriate with Kerastase shampoo and conditioner.

The overall color is still fairly red at the tips but does pull in a bit of blonde, especially in the sunlight, which I completely and totally love. I had been thinking about leaving red behind for my God-given brunette in the somewhat near future, but after this round of color, I definitely want to keep it in the mix for awhile longer!

I am one hundred percent loyal to Jan-Marie because she gives me the most amazing color time and time again. No matter what I ask for, she creates a look that lasts for months at a time (think six or more), and consistently garners compliments and admiring looks. I can't stress enough how fantastic a colorist she is and how much you should consider visiting her at Jeff Chastain Parlor if and when you are in NYC.
