Transitioning To Grey Hair
Transitioning to gray hair does not have to be a long, drawn-out process with ugly or unwanted color. There are many ways to perform the gray hair transition. From lowlights to highlights and balayage to pigment treatments, the best way to transition to gray hair is working with someone who understands the chemistry of color.

Vicki Cabrales — Transition to Silver Inspiration
I met Kristen 5 years ago when she became my colors and “curl-wrangler”. Every 4 weeks Kristen colored my shoulder length curly hair a beautiful shade of red and I loved it (the curls, the length and the color)! That is until Christmas 2017 when my Mother-in-law’s husband asked me why my hair was orange. Orange, not red. Orange. For the next 5 months I became increasingly more dissatisfied with my curls and my color. Sitting in Kristen’s salon in May 2018, I happened to pick up Lorraine Massey’s Silver Hair: A Handbook. I was very intrigued. When I left Kristen’s that day, I did two things:
- I bought a copy of Lorraine’s book and read it cover to cover in three days; and
- I decided to embrace my silver!
I called Kristen within a week of that May appointment and told her I wanted to transition to silver. She was so very supportive and excited for me. We became “silver siren buddies” as she had just decided to do the same thing with her own hair.
Over the next three months, instead of coloring my hair, Kristen toned the red allowing my natural color to blend with the silver.
We decided to cut the dry, damaged, half-hearted curls and what remained of the faded red hair in September. Kristen gave me a sassy new cut just below my ears and a funny thing happened: my hair was immediately healthier. My hair became thicker and shinier. My curls became curlier. I now have “free range” crazy curls and gorgeous silver hair. Thank you, Kristen, for the wonderful silver transition experience.
