Truman’s uses a color camouflage technique that works for all types of hair colors. This is a non-permanent coloring system that is mixed by your stylists specifically for your color hair. This is critical because your hair is usually a mix of different colors or shades so the formula used to color it needs to be specific to your hair tones. Once we have the right formula, which is recorded for future use, your stylists will apply it to your hair. The goal is to apply it strategically in order to subtly darken your gray and blend it with the non or less gray. Finally the formula is washed out, you get styled and are ready to go- a little younger looking than when you came in. The color formula will last 3-4 weeks and then is reapplied in order to maintain a consistent color.
How you handle graying hair depends on when you decide to address it. In the perfect world men would start dealing with their gray just before it reaches the level of gray that makes them most comfortable. This makes it easier to manage the transition from your natural color to the right balance of gray, because you won’t have to reverse the graying process you just have to stop it from progressing past where your are most comfortable. Talking to your barber / stylist early in the graying process allows you to formulate a plan proactively.
However, if you are like most men and one-day wake up look in the mirror and say “what happened to my hair?” then, this prior plan is not going to work for you. This is when Truman’s professional, subtle approach is most important, unless you are the rare guy that prefers to draw attention to a dramatic change in hair color. Our use of color camouflage allows our stylists to gradually mix darker shades into your gray hair over time. We manage this over multiple visits until we reach your preferred mix of pepper and salt, and do so in a manner that leaves none the wiser.
No matter what how you decide to handle your maturation into a silver fox, Truman’s highly suggests that you talk to the professionals to develop a plan. We can’t promise you will look like George Clooney, but we will help you become the best version of you.
