Nordic Blonde hair color, What does this mean when it comes to hair color, Most  people would not even think or consider the eye color when it comes to having their hair colored or think twice if its even possible , However I get a lot of calls for white blonde  hair. In hair color charts there is no such thing about white color pigment its Nothing like paint for house these are totally two separate  chemicals and do not work the same . So in hair we must  lighten  the hair as much as possible  without  causing  more damage than needed , so it will be a slow process using low volume  H2o2 and Decolorant with proteins this type of process can  well take over 5 hours depending on your hair, Its not for every client.

HOW TO AVOID HOME HAIR COLOR DISASTERS,Don’t end up as a hair-color correction client.

    Many of us have experienced a hair color mishap at some point , or at least dreaded it. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as buying another box of hair color, Cause inside that box there is no color expert and fixing that coloring  mistake. Artificial hair color doesn’t lighten other artificial hair colors unless  completely understand how to manipulate the chemicals in hair color you  It can only lighten natural shades by up for four levels using color and developers. So as tempting as it is to try to “fix” the problem yourself, your attempts could make matters worse.


One of the key ways to avoid color disasters is to have your hair colored by a professional do your hair . Remember that the more layers of home hair color and variety that are applied to hair, the more difficult it is to create a beautiful color, Even for the best hair color masters. This also can make the difference between a color-correction and a complicated service, multiple steps, several hour (possibly weeks or months) process.


If you find that your color is less than you expected, Please schedule a consultation with hair colorist Martin Rodriguez we will get the color you always wanted in time.

 : Hair color corrections by Hair colorist Martin Rodriguez

Not all hair color corrections are the same some can be simple and easy to fix , Where other color correction services can be very extreme and may take longer than you think, The structure of the hair is very important specially when the hair has been degraded so much that the hair does not hold color any longer. At this point we must repair the hair before doing any more color services to be sure that the hair can handle more chemicals.

Hair color correction on over processed Bleach hair.

At times the hair can be overly processed when clients do their own hair or have a best friend that does not understand how to improve the structure of hair.  The use of flat irons can ELSE be very damaging to the hair , Hot irons can heat up to 450 degrees the use of an iron at this temperature over any kind of hair can cause the cuticle to melt off causing the hair to look like it HAS SPLITS ENDS, its  more damaging on color treated hair and  over processed bleached hair.

The The 

For the last 36 years I have been a stylist and colorist in Orange County, California. In that time, I have seen many beauty products and color lines rise and fall in popularity, which gave me the opportunity to try many hair color lines.  I have used many other products in the past from organic to the conventional ammonia hair color. In fact, I was extremely satisfied with many of these products for years I’ve being working behind the chair giving clients the best colors that will compliment their skin tone and hair cuts that will flatter their style. Being a loyal user and  EDUCATOR FOR VARIOUS  lines including my own  caused my client-base to grow with happy, satisfied clients. However, being always ready to try out the new technologies in hair color and products, I never stopped experimenting when new ideas came forth. But, nothing prepared me for the paradigm shift that occurred when I began truly to understand the chemistry of hair color .

Flattering natural hair color no matter on the color tones from red hair to blondes or Brunettes, Color should always compliment your skin tone.

Red Hair

You’ve finally noticed the perfect red hair shade in a magazine.

What you don’t realize is that the color of one’s skin tone should be considered while formulating that perfect hair color.

This is a lesson I’ve learned through out the years of working behind the chair choosing and formulating the perfect tones for my clients.

Red hair colors varies on tones from copper to cool blue tones and it is one of the most important facts when it comes to choosing color for your skin.

What are the best hair color tones & shades will and won’t work for you?


With a subtle red shade, a combination of strawberry blonde shade blended with a darker warm tone as a background. A deep brighter red as a pop color will make your color stand out above the rest. Using a third color in a gradient patter to make it look as if you were born with this formulation of coloring.

California blondes:  Blondes with a darker tone base and well blended lighter ends Known as balayage hair painting or color-Melt. Same goes here in order for blonde hair to look its best it is recommended to always add a back ground color tone so the blonde lighter color stands out and looks healthier.


A combination of coffee and chocolate red tones and auburns work wonders on darker hair violet blue base colors look great on dark hair.

Remember that it’s NOT just about choosing the right colors for SKIN tone. The second most important role in coloring is Color placement and method of application.

Martin  was successfully in creating the ombré hair color on my hair and he did it all free hand without damaging my hair further. I am often asked about how my hair was done so perfectly. Thank you Martin!

Basic Color Sense: 

The foundation of hair color is knowing the simple color wheel. Know your primary colors and how they mix to form the spectrum. You can't expect to create beautiful hair color without knowing which colors the hair has and which colors need to be added. Remember That light plays a huge part in hair color, Contrast, Light,Dimension hues.

Keep this in-mind you can use any pattern for color from highlighting to low lights, Ombre’s using patterns the color should compliment the skin tone and the way the hair cut flows
