Classic Hair Coloring Ideas

If you are loking to change natural color to a lighter or darker tone, consider tone to tone coloring, want to cover grey hair or change hair color we may offer following techniques - Permanent hair colouring, Semi- permanent or Demi- permanent.

We use Goldwell hair colour and we also offer ammonia free bleach and ammonia free hair color for those with sensitive hair. Our colour service is the best in Toronto! All the images you see on our website were done by our team.

Natural Brown Hair Colour

The natural colour of hair is always in fashion. Most of my clients are women of natural-brown colour with different shades of hair. Unfortunately, it's often called the "grey mouse" colour. It also a big advantage. For such customers, the ability to change hair colour is not limited to the colour range of dyes. Here the main idea is to properly identify your colour type. Any fashionable colours and shades of brown chestnut, bitter chocolate, caramel, and gold give unlimited possibilities in dyeing hair and changing the appearance for brown-haired (chestnut) and natural brown haired beauties. Uncertainty ("grey mouse") about the colour of your hair suggests the need to give them a rich, juicy hue.

I'll help you find the right shade of hair that will benefit your skin, the brightness of your eye, as well as give your image attractiveness and charm. Once again I want to draw your attention to the fact that it is far from necessary to use permanent dyes in all cases. If you have a small number of grey (up to 30%) or no grey at all, I recommend that you use demi- or semi-dyes as they have sparing effects on hair due to the complete lack of ammonia in them, as well as low peroxide content in the developer. As a result, the hair will look healthy and shiny, and the shade will last for a long time in the hair without the effect of overgrown roots.

Dark Brunet Hair Colour

This colour is always in fashion. Shades of blue-black, the colour of bitter chocolate, or a cold violet are always relevant. However, be careful when choosing this colour scheme. Too dark of a colour is not suitable for everyone, and it can also add age: wrinkles and problem areas of the skin will become more noticeable. In addition, you need to pay attention to the shape of the eyebrows. The fact is that this colour range of hair shows previously invisible facial imperfections. However, there are also positive aspects: for example, natural brunettes need to cover the overgrown roots of hair less often, which is a great help in maintaining the even colour of the hair.

If you have a grey hair (up to 30%) and want to try a range of dark shades, then you are better off using demi- and semi-hair dyes: they will perfectly cope with the task, give the desired shade and a dazzling shine to the hair. And when you decide to change your image, a simple colour correction procedure will leave your hair in excellent condition (of course, I'm talking only about professional hair colouring done in the salon using professional dyes).

Auburn Hair Colour

Those with a natural auburn hair colour are a rarity in our time. Brightness and eccentricity of the image in combination with green or brown eyes is the key to the success of the owners of such a gift of nature! Therefore, I always try to discourage those who own such a treasure from radical colouring. It's another matter, when gray hairs start to appear and the colouring becomes inevitable - in this case I always recommend chaanging the palette from tone to tone, in order to preserve the natural appearance as much as possible

Those with auburn hair will not go well with very light or very dark saturated palettes. Deep chocolate shade will give excessive severity, and an ashy shade can make your hair colour silvery and transparent. Brightness can be added to this hair using shades of pomegranate, copper, bordeaux and various shades of red, as well as a soft shade of strawberry blonde. The use of permanent dyes is not recommended, and in many cases strictly toning hair products will be used. They will give shine, and also not for a long time will change a shade of your hair. Even after such experiments your hair will remain in perfect shape.

Red Hair Colour

Only those with incredible self-confindence can pull off this look. When you create this image, take care of your overall picture (appropriate makeup and style in clothes should be in harmony with your hair, thereby complementing, not contradicting). I want to point out that in some cases, you have to first lighten your hair, and then you have to blend the desired shade of the red palette (in the case of very dark colours in shades of red). It is also necessary to know that red shades are washed away faster than shades of other colours, which requires increased attention to maintain red hair colour.

I always recommend using only professional product lines for coloured hair, and in some cases also use a toning products that helps to constantly maintain the colour saturated.

What is the difference between Semi and demi- permanent coloring?

Semi has no developer while demi will have a peroxide based developer. The developer slightly opens the cuticle of the hair shaft allowing the demi color to penetrate while semi-permanent will color the hair shaft only.

Once again, I would like to remind you that only a regular visit to the salon, a timely haircut and coloring, as well as a correct and constant home care will make your hair beautiful & evoking enthusiastic looks. Ask our stylist upon your next visit to Figaro salon about proper shampoo & conditioner, possible hair treatments to use at home.

Testimonials

So I found this place on google and I cannot be happier. I absolutely love what they did to my hair. I went with dry damaged brassy hair and they made my hair so beautiful. I am in love with my hair now. Their customer service was the best. I will totally recommend this place to my friends.

I am so happy I have found this place! After having my hair burned by another salon, I met Elena for a consultation and her experience, knowledge, talent and warmth made me at ease immediately. She knows what to do in every situation to give you an amazing color. I came back for my transformation a week later and Elena and Amandine were able to correct my color and work their magic on my hair. Not only do I have an amazing color but also a very modern look and cut. I am so happy I found them!

I was long overdue for a hair cut and color but was procrastinating to go as other salons couldn't provide me with a convenient time.

Prior to the booking I had a hair cut consultation with the owner of the Salon Lena who answered all my questions and provided the best suggestions for the hair coloring and booked my appointment right the next day. I had a wonderful hair cut and Balayage coloring done at Figaro Hair Salon on May 5. Lina was the hair dresser who did a fantastic job! The haircut is very manageable and exactly what I needed. The coloring was done to perfection with the shades I wanted ( ...and I am very picky ). I waited for three weeks to post an honest review as I wanted to see how my hair would 'behave' and I am very thrilled about the final results. Thank you to the team at Figaro hair salon who made my hair look amazing and manageable. I highly recommend.

My wife and I stumbled on this gem a month ago, with the reviews alone we decided to check it out and get a consultation.

From what we received from Elena we were very impressed (when doing your research and been to how many salons...'you'd be surprised' this place was the most knowledgeable/polite for us). From just 1 meeting she figured out my wife's hair along with complete honesty of what its going to take to fix it 'which is really what we are looking for.' We ended up coming back after 3 weeks (BOOK EARLY/ASAP! they are SUPER BUSY!), Elena and her team did an AMAZING JOB!! with my wife's hair (after a few salons couldn't get it right..)

My wife is so trilled with the professional care of 'Service' and 'Results' that she has received. They were ever so gentle and caring. This team of wonderful talented artists take their time in perfecting their work and you can tell that they take a lot of pride in what they do. We're very thankful and grateful for their kind hospitality and honesty.

Thank you Elena and team!

We shall be seeing you soon!

Oh my GOD! This place is amazing. Lina did an amazing job on my hair when I wanted a drastic change (waist length to a long bob). So happy with the cut and style, quality of service, and attention to detail. Prices are also EXTREMELY reasonable for the quality.

So happy! Will definitely be back!

My stylist was very professional and knowledgeable that lead to great colour that matched exactly what I was looking for ... she is patient and passionate about her work and takes her time to reach perfect results ... thanks for the great colour and cut!

I went to Figaro to get a big chop! My hair went half way down my back and I cut it to my chin. Whenever I do a drastic hair transformation, I want to make sure that I trust the person who's cutting it. Figaro was a first for me, and it definitely won't be a last! Lina did an amazing job- she listened to what I wanted and she delivered beyond my expectations (and I'm picky). She was also welcoming and beyond friendly from the moment I walked into the salon. I definitely recommend Figaro to anyone looking for a quality haircut.

I went to Figaro a couple of months back and received quite a few treaments, I got my hair ombréd and the next day went back for a kerasilk treatment because I was going to travel and had very frizzy hair in humidity! My experience was amazing Elena and Lina were the woman who worked their magic on me!! The espresso machine was a god sent and snacking on coco sticks was even better!! And the work they do and knowledge is crazy I learned so much about my hair and for a first time at a Toronto hair salon I was extremely impressed I cant wait to go back and my hair is still silky smooth even after my trip and the colour is amazing!! ❤️❤️❤️

Today, I had my hair done at Figaro Hair Salon by Lina and Elena. Lina is a professional hair stylist did a very good job by doing balayage and laminate for my hair. About a month ago, I've had a bad experience at another place where my hair colour end up completely wrong. So, I went to see Elena ( Art director) at Figaro Salon and asked her to fix the mistake. Elena took very professional approach advising it to be done in a few steps avoiding damagiing my hair. Elena and Lina work as a team. Elena has a very good esthetic taste and can give unique professional advice. I am very happy with the result.

I highly recommend this salon. You get what u want. And the owner is amazing she went through everything with how to style it, what colour and everything was perfect.

I went to this salon over the weekend for balayge hair colour. Even though I had walked in with unrealistic expectations, Lina and the owner listened and walked me through the process and pricing and suggested an approach that would suit my damaged hair. Lina is an absolute perfectionist and took her time and didn't rush through the process ensuring my hair was not being overprocessed and even stayed past their closing time to finish and style. My hair turned out way better than I expected, blended beautifully with a gorgeous tone of blond. I'll definitely be back in the future and recommend this salon to anyone looking to get hair done in a professional and friendly atmosphere with experienced staff!! Thanks again Lina for my gorgeous hair!! 🙌👩

I have been to this salon a few times and have always had a good experience. Great people, friendly atmosphere and wonderful service [not to mention the fantastic coffee and treats :)]. Today I had my brown roots and blonde highlights done by Lina. I have been experiencing some hair health issues lately and Lina was so considerate, gentle and reassurring. I received beautiful platinum blonde highlights without any damage. It turned out exactly as the picture I showed. The cut was perfect, as was the style. It has been a while since I've been this pleased with my hair and how my hair was dealt with. Thank you Lina ... you are an absolute sweetheart and I am very pleased and happy with my hair!

Everyone's been super nice to me here, and it tends to be very person-oriented experience; the coffee is also always a nice touch. The team is very open, honest, and realistic about what they'll be able to accomplish given the situation, preferring to approach harsh treatments in a cautious conservative manner to lessen the chance of any adverse effects/risks.

Love my hair. Beautiful little studio. I found my go to salon.

I love, love, LOVE my new colour! I described what I wanted and I got exactly what I asked for - the results surpassed my expectations! However, I only gave four stars because the cut leaves a little to be desired. I have very thick hair and she thinned it out way too much, especially the right side which is noticeably a bit shorter than the left side. That said, my hair IS damaged at the moment so I guess losing a bit more than I wanted will probably be a benefit in the long run. I don't hate it, I'm just not 100% happy. It's not a deal breaker though and with the amazing colour results, I will definitely give them a second chance and just tell her go easy on the thinning next time. Did I mention that I love, love, LOVE my new colour?!

I have been getting my hair done at the Figaro salon for over 10 years now. It is operated by the owner Elena, who has lots of hairstyling and hair coloring experience. She probably won every single award under the sun! All her staff are very knowledgeable and a couple of years ago I had a pleasure of meeting Lina. She has years of hair styling experience on her own. Whether you are looking for creative ideas for coloring / cut /styles that would best suit you or have something specific in mind she is your kind of gal. With her we have maintained different styles which I loved but we also experimented with some new ones. She is a gem, I have never been disappointed and I am pleased to share my experience with her work. I am posting some of the coloring we did recently. Sorry as it turned out I didn't take many pictures of my hair alone!

I have been a customer for a couple of years and I have found the quality and customer service to be excellent.

I rarely have to wait to be seated and I can't say that of any other hair salon --and I am always a few minutes early!

As for the customer service, you can't ask for a more friendly atmosphere.

Seriously the best place I have ever been.

I just wanted her to know that she is appreciated and loved by many! xoxoxoxo Thank you so much Tamara and the whole Figaro's Hair and Beauty Salon Team for giving the most phenomenal customer service I have ever received xoxoxo P.S Booking my next appointment right now :)

I came to Figaro salon today for a haircut with Lina. She was styling another lady with beautiful long wavy hair.

It looks really amazing. Lina is very kind and understanding. She did a very cute and chic A- line Bob for me.

I couldn't be any happier to find a hairstylist who cuts in so much detail (truly a perfectionist). Thank you so much for the pleasant service!

The other clients also have beautiful haircuts and colors with other stylists. They are very passionate and artistic. I highly recommend this place

I went to Figaro hair salon to achieve the perfect blonde/balayage.

I went in with extremely damaged brassy hair and the hairdresser Tamara spent 6+ hours on my hair to rejuvenate it and give me the best style and color.

Tamara knows exactly what she is doing and she is so professional, kind, and honest. OBSESSED with my new hair. I also love so much their entire team, they are so welcoming and honest and care so much for their client's hair. I will 100% return to them!

Just got back from Figaro, and impatient to write a review. Totally in love with my new haircut.

Everyone was super nice, a hairstylist Lina came across as very knowledgeable and experienced, she offered me a couple of hair style options, and was very helpful, I truly enjoyed the entire process! It's hard to find a hairdresser who you will be happy with 100%, but it feels like I've found one! The ambiance is very professional but welcoming at the same time.

Will definitely be back!

Impeccable customer service from Elena and staff!
Experienced stylists

I am a new resident to Toronto and was having a tough time choosing a salon. When I called into Figaro, Elena was incredibly helpful in matching me to a great stylist for my proposed cut/color, Michelle. Michelle took extra time, care, and patience with me as I was doing a very dramatic color change from light to dark which I was having some anxiety about. I was given a full consultation in-salon before anything occurred, and both Elena and Michelle walked me through the numerous coloring options to make the best choice (we ended up with a “reverse balayage” instead of a semi-permanent dye which turned out AWESOME). I was in the salon for over 3 hours and felt totally taken care of and confident with Michelle handling my hair, something I am really particular with after modeling and using the same stylist for many years. Even though we went over my appointment time, Michelle did not try to rush me out but *still* cut and styled my hair as she knew I was going downtown to an event. She was so great, personable, and really listened to what I wanted while offering excellent suggestions and providing great company for my long appointment. 5/5 - would recommend Michelle and this salon to anyone!

I cannot say enough good things about my first time at Figaro salon. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED every minute of my time there!

Team is highly professional and caring! I got amazing color correction hair treatment, and wonderful hair cut which compliments my skin and eyes done by Elena.

She says:'If you have a good haircut, you don't need to spend a lot of time styling at all.' And that's exactly what I got.

To be honest, there's one thing I'm disappointed about it's location of the salon.

From now on I have to travel to the other side of the city to get my hair done!
