Three years ago, everything began. When a woman entered colorist Jack Martin’s studio in California, she told him that she had been using at-home box color to tint her hair from gray to brown every three to four weeks for years. She wanted to save as much time as she could, but she didn’t want to worry about her hair color all the time because she was retired and enjoying the outdoors.
Jack Martin agreed to the task, and they began exchanging concepts right once. The two of them ultimately came to the decision to color her hair silver, which would give her natural gray tone a little more shine and enable the woman to visit salons less frequently. When all was said and done, she cherished the outcomes. Martin also did. He was so happy with the results of his work that he even shared the metamorphosis on Instagram. People took notice. When the image went viral, Martin started getting people who had similar demands.
Martin told Allure, “My clients with naturally gray hair come two or three times a year, rather than every few weeks.” In addition to the empowering feelings that come with owning your natural gray hair, the independence that goes with such a magnificent appearance is also alluring. Typically, Martin completes these modifications in a single, ten-hour session.
The procedure begins by employing a color extractor to get rid of any lingering fake color, as he described on Instagram. Martin then bleaches the remaining hair on the head to prepare it for the new silver color while still protecting the gray roots.
The essential portion follows. Martin chose the new shade based on the natural gray pattern in the hair. In order to assess the natural hue of his client’s hair, he even requests that they arrive with three to four inches of their roots fully grown out. The design is then repeated throughout the entire hairstyle.
Martin stated, “I match that and add some darkness to it. Some people have salt and pepper predominantly in the front and the back is darker. Then, roughly ten hours later, customers leave his salon happy with the blending of their natural shade.
