Many of our color clients want to know: What is the difference between a glaze and a toner and why do I need one?
Glaze, gloss, and toner are all basically the same thing. “Toner” is and older term for a process that was simply used to counter-act unwanted hues. Today, we say “Glaze” for a process that is similar, but is used more for enhancing color or as a color treatment on its own. The features and benefits of today glazes have come a pretty long way.
They can also be called (professionally) demi-permanent hair color. They are one of the handiest tools your professional colorist has in her arsenal. They are best used to counteract unwanted underlying color tones in the hair such as “brassiness”. Toning, glazing, and glossing incorporates the basic color principal that opposite shades across the color wheel will cancel each other out. On top of this, the process dramatically enhances the hair’s shine.
The super state-of-the-art products that we use here at The Root Salon, use a patented protein to deliver this color balancing pigment molecule. Depending on what’s best for the hair, we apply it at the shampoo bowl, at the color chair, and sometimes let it process under heat. It all depends on the hair color correction that we are doing and the level of intensity needed.
Either way and however you refer to it, the end result for your hair is faultless hair color with a shine level that will blow your mind. Our guests are addicted to it!
