If I learned anything during the pandemic, it’s that being able to do and color your hair at home is truly a valuable skill. And while sure, the plethora of YouTube hair tutorials out there can provide some guidance, when it comes to at-home coloring, you want to know you’re learning directly from a professional and using salon-quality products that rid your hair of pesky grays and leave it looking gorgeous and damage free. I could definitely use a pointer or two when it comes to the best tips and tricks on the application process and luckily Madison Reed is able to break it down with its (free!) online hair coloring classes.
In the most recent Hair Color House Party, participants learned all about why root coverage and gloss are the perfect pair thanks to a hands-on demonstration from Susan Roberts-Cooper, Director of Research & Development at Madison Reed. During the event, Susan was also able to answer viewers’ questions and give a rundown on how to best section your hair and advice for how to properly apply the gloss.
For those thinking about experimenting with at-home hair care, Madison Reed offers a virtual hair color makeover tool on their website, making it super easy to try different shades before you buy a color. In addition, they also have a helpful Color Quiz, which prompts you to answer questions to find your perfect shade and step-by-step instructions on how to apply the radiant cream color and color reviving gloss.
It’s understandable if you’re feeling a bit out of your element with hair coloring. After all, there are so many things to know and doing your hair only to be disappointed with the results, would be a real let down. But rest assured, the experts at Madison Reed know what they’re doing. And if you want to learn more about “The Science Behind Hair Color,” you can easily take steps to educate yourself or get color matched from an expert online or at one of their locations.
But aside from the hair coloring process, SheKnows Editor-in-Chief Eugenia Richman, made a special appearance, teaching viewers how to apply an eye mask, the dos and don’ts of how long you should leave it on (tip: you can leave it on longer, but not overnight) and the best ones to try.
It’s so easy to get bogged down with other tasks while you’re coloring your hair at home, but try to use that time as a true self-care moment, whether you’re using a face roller, giving yourself a pedicure or applying an eye mask, it will definitely be worth it and you’ll look and feel your best afterward.
Unfortunately, their live June 9th Hair Color House Party was the last one on the lineup for now, but there will be plenty more for you to take advantage of in the future. And luckily, if you’re bummed you missed all the hair coloring action, you can watch Hair Color House Party replays on Madison Reed’s YouTube channel.
If you plan on watching (which you definitely should!) and coloring along, here are a few tips to keep in mind beforehand:
- Have day-old clean, dry hair
- Have plastic hair clips to help with hair sectioning
- Wear an old shirt or smock to avoid any accidental clothing stains
- Plan on starting your process timer when you complete your color application
