Common problems
Colouring hair is a specialist skill, and our clients often tell us about their experiences visiting other stylists and colouring professionals. You may even have experienced some of these issues yourself.
  • Regrowth, possibly within two weeks. It can sometimes even be seen while still in the chair when roots have not been reached or the colour has bled.
  • Misjudged tones including areas that show as yellow or orange, or harsh ash tones on grey hair.
  • Lack of shine.
  • Dry, damaged hair.
  • Application of the wrong colours.
  • A lack of knowledge about how long colour should be left on the hair or the positioning of colour and tones.

The Hollywood Colour Blend™ approach
Creating beautifully blended hair colour is a sophisticated process involving many stages, each requiring an expert’s touch. It is about very much more than simply adding highlights or lowlights, and many factors need to be considered in order to get it right.

The Catherine Boden approach involves understanding the skin’s undertones, as these will help determine the perfect hair colour for any individual.
There are three main hair tone categories. These are warm, cool and neutral. We select hair tones that complement the skin’s undertones, such as cooler colours to suit someone with warm undertones.

We use up to 14 tones, with every highlight and lowlight being carefully considered during the process. Brighteners, lighteners and toners all have a role to play, as does precise colour placement.

It is not a process that can be rushed, taking between five and eight hours, but the Catherine Boden salon has been designed to help the time fly by. The experience is all about pampering and pleasure!
Colours
Brunettes
Naturally brown hair offers a wide range of possibilities, and we have the expertise to create stunning effects including on Asian hair types. Working with ‘bronde’ colours (half brunette, half blonde), we can introduce lighter shades leaving a dark shadowed root, with the shading being taken to different lengths as required. The style can be matched with eyebrow and skin tones for a beautifully natural-looking effect. We can also eliminate the brassy golden tones that can be found on dark brunette hair, replacing these tones with ash blonde or chocolate brown.
Blondes
In creating solutions for our blonde clients, we provide richness and subtlety in the colours we use. We control warm tones and use a range of very effective lowlighting and highlighting techniques, blending colours gradually to give natural-looking lighter ends. Our unique product selection gives us access to a huge range of colours for the kind of finish that cannot be found elsewhere.
Reds
We help our red-haired clients to achieve a range of warm, cool and vibrant red finishes, using sophisticated techniques to enhance the selected tone. We help clients choose from a range of options, brightening or neutralising as required, softening harsher natural tones and adding golden highlights where appropriate.
