Since many hair salons were forced to close during the coronavirus pandemic, many people were left trying to figure out how to cut and color their own hair. An at-home haircut can actually look pretty decent if you know what you’re doing, but at-home color is a little bit more complicated.

For some people, color may be optional, such as people who simply would like to change the color of their hair from brown to blond. For people who are trying to hide grey hair, dying their hair may not seem optional.

One hair stylist begs to differ.

Jack Martin helps women embrace going grey. He doesn’t dye their hair a color like black, brown or blond. Instead, he dyes their hair silver, and it’s glorious. Honestly, after scrolling through his Instagram page, we’re almost looking forward to going grey.

The great thing about dying hair grey instead of a completely different color (like brown) is that clients don’t need to get their hair re-dyed nearly as often. Instead of coming in for a touch-up every few weeks, clients only need to visit the salon a couple times a year. 

If you’re not sold on the idea of going silver, wait until you see some of these before and after pictures!

    This beautiful client came to me seeking lighter hair color to blend with her gray roots so she can stop coloring her hair, I started the long process by lightening the whole head starting from where her gray roots starts by taking thin and wide strands in foils to match her natural grey roots pattern using @oligopro extra blonde and 20 vol developer mixed with @olaplex leaving her gray roots out for about 2 hours until I reached level 10 pale yellow blonde, at the same time all the hair that was left outside the foils I colored it with guytang mydentity shadow ash 6 mixed with 10 vol for about 30 min , then rinsed hair, toned with new @wellahairusa new blondor toner pale platinum mixed with brass kicker and 10 vol developer for 20 minutes, then shampooed, conditioned, cut and styled with round brushes. Total service: 9 hours #behindthechair #modernsalon #americansalon #tustinhairstylist #tustinsalon #tustinhair #irvinehair #irvinehairstylist #irvinesalon #irvinebalayage #newportbeachsalon #newportbeachhair #newportbeachhairstylist #newportbeachbalayage #orangecountysalon #orangecountyhairstylist #beverlyhillshair #beverlyhillssalon #beverlyhillshairstylist @behindthechair_com @modernsalon @american_salon @wellaeducation @guytang_mydentity #mydentity #wella #wellatoner #blondor #olaplex #oligopro

  20. Stunning and Silver

    View this post on Instagram

    For this transformation I lightened the whole head by taking then slice section in long @framar foils so it get light fast and it wouldn’t over process the hair already light, because if I take thick sections that has warm hair and over processed hair until I get the warm areas to lift the over process hair will fall out so taking a thin section help saving the hair, I used @redken flashlight with 20vol and @olaplex until I reached level 10 blonde, I feathered the lightener at roots to create nice transition. Rinsed hair, towel dried then applied pravana 6N with 6 vol on roots for blending. Then applied @pravana 1/2 10N + 1/2 10.07 with 6 vol on the rest of the length for 30 minuets, Olaplex number 2, shampooed, cut layers, style with round brushes. Total service time was 7 hours. @behindthechair #behindthechair #americansalon #modernsalon #Olaplex @american_salon @modernsalon #jackmartinsalon #jackmartincolorist @saloncentric #saloncentricpartner #pravana #redken

    Some ladies they only have heavy grey around their front hair line the same as this beautiful client of mine who came from Arizona and I just framed her face with silver strands to blend her hair line grey roots to blend with the length of the hair in an artistic way. I created front grey strands to match her roots using @wellahair blondor lightener with 20 vol and @olaplex for 4 hours then toned with @wellahairusa blondor pale silver toner mixed with 6 vol and brass kicker applied on the bleached hair only for 20 minutes. Then I toned the brassy hair with guytang @guytang_mydentity dark Shadow for 30 min with 10 vol. Shampoo, cut layers and style with round brushes. ———————————————————————— #behindthechair #americansalon #modernsalon #olaplex @behindthechair_com @american_salon @modernsalon #tustinhairstylist #tustinsalon #tustinhair #irvinehair #irvinehairstylist #irvinesalon #irvinebalayage #newportbeachsalon #newportbeachhair #newportbeachhairstylist #newportbeachbalayage #balayagehair #balayageombre #balayagehighlights #orangecountysalon #orangecountyhairstylist #beverlyhillshair #beverlyhillssalon #beverlyhillshairstylist #silverhair #greyhair #wella @wellaeducation

    Black virgin hair to sliver metallic balayage. Formula: I did a heavy balayage with back combing technique ( I only back combed middle shaft to roots with 2 back combing action only ) using @oligopro extra light lightener with 20 vol and b3, after 1 hour I opened each foil and reapply a new lightener mixture to the warm areas, and wiped off the lightener with wet towel from the ends of the hair. Total time for lightening the hair was 90 minuets until I reached level 10 light blonde, rinsed hair, then pre toned with redken shade eq 7P on roots middle shaft then 9P on the lower part of the hair for 15 minuets to cancel all the yellow from the hair, rinsed again, dried hair then applied Kenra silver metallic 9SM with 6 vol and 1 inch of blue booster for 30 minuets, shampooed, conditioned, cut layers and styled with 2 inches curling iron. Total service time: 9 hours Important note: client had virgin black hair. #behindthechair #kenra #americansalon #modernsalon @brazilianbondbuilder #brazilianbondbuilder @behindthechair_com @american_salon @modernsalon #tustinhairstylist #tustinsalon #tustinhair #irvinehair #irvinehairstylist #irvinesalon #irvinebalayage #newportbeachsalon #newportbeachhair #newportbeachhairstylist #newportbeachbalayage #balayagehair #balayageombre #balayagehighlights #orangecountysalon #orangecountyhairstylist #beverlyhillshair #beverlyhillssalon #beverlyhillshairstylist @kenraprofessional #oligopro
