How the Color of your Irises Could Determine the Perfect Color for your Hair

Lisa Cavalone is a pretty, young hair professional who is an expert when it comes to styling, coloring or cutting your hair.  She’s worked in the industry for over 10 years and while she lives and works in L.A. you can tell from the moment you meet her, that she was born and raised in New York.  This is the type of girl who doesn’t mince words… which is a good thing when you want an honest opinion about your hair or latest drama in your life.

Here are a few tips that can make or break your hair…  

Q: I see you every 6-8 weeks to get a trim and semi-permanent glaze.  You always encourage me to go lighter in the Winter and darker in the Summer… that seems counterintuitive (but I listen)… Why?

A: Growing up in New York, I noticed the majority of women keep their hair lighter in the Summer and go darker in the Winter. This is something I never quite understood. In the Winter months and even the Winter-ish months in L.A. it gets darker earlier, colder and our skin tends to be a bit paler. By keeping lighter hues in your hair weather you’re a brunette, blonde, or redhead, gives you the brightness you need to not feel washed out (at least in my opinion).  In the Summer, adding darker hues with color or semi-permanent glazes giving you a bit of a darker foundation to start with, which will help with fast fading on brunettes or redheads and brassy hues for blondes from the sun, pool and the beach.


Q: How do you figure out the right color for your skin tone?

A: I sit with each client and discuss what color they are trying to achieve. 9 out of 10 clients say, “What do you think?” The first thing I do is look at the iris of my client’s eye. Some have a solid color iris and some have a multi-tonal iris (different specs of color throughout). This allows me to determine what color would compliments the client’s skin tone.


Q: If you color your hair, do you need to use specific products to maintain it?

A: I tell all my clients who color their hair, that color is like investing in a nice pair of jeans. If you wash them everyday or use cheap detergent, they’re going to fade! I highly recommend using shampoo and conditioner made for color treated hair!
