bBlond®

bBlond is a proprietary Studio Taka color process that creates the most authentic sun-kissed, natural blonde we’ve ever seen. The Studio Taka team worked for years to perfect the special bBlond technique. As the “blonde expert”, we are obsessed with developing natural looking blonde hair.

Specifically tailored and formulated to complement each client’s skin tone and hair shade, the Studio Taka team uses Aveda’s Full Spectrum color line – up to 99% naturally derived from plants and non-petroleum based minerals. We’ve had tremendous, repeated success with most hair types and colors.

bBlond tackles the five major issues with traditional hair highlighting processes:

  1. Dark Roots and Streaky Highlights
  2. Otherwise known as the skunk look, this seemingly inevitable problem dates from Linda Evans on Dynasty and before. Most people have medium to dark blonde hair even if they were blonde as children. bBlond utilizes a custom base-shifting process that will adjust your hair color just enough to appear as though you’ve spent some time in the sun. Many clients tell us it reminds them of the color of their hair when they were young.

  3. Noticeable Roots in Just a Few Weeks
  4. Traditional highlight methods cover just 30% to 40% of the hair at the very most, leaving the rest of the hair un-touched. Regrowth can be noticeable in as quickly as two weeks. bBlond slightly changes almost 100% of your hair color – darker roots typically will not be noticeable for 3 to 5 weeks depending on your natural hair color. Most of our bBlond clients go anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks longer in between color services than when they used traditional highlighting. This offsets the small extra cost of bBlond while you enjoy much more natural looking results.

  5. Hair gets Lighter and Lighter with Each Highlight
  6. Most salons randomly weave the hair each time the highlight color is applied, causing the head of hair to appear as though it is getting lighter and lighter.In the bBlond process, the Studio Taka team meticulously selects only the previously woven hair so the result is consistent and maintains the three dimensional texture that is so important to natural looking hair.

  7. Traditional Highlighting of Hair Causes Breakage
  8. Traditional highlighting methods, because of the random weaving each time the lightener and color is applied, will cause previously processed hair to be treated over and over causing breakage. The Studio Taka bBlond process is specifically formulated for each client so that only new growth receives the full color process, virtually eliminating the breakage issue.

  9. Salon Blonde is Always Brassy Yellow, Dull and Dingy
  10. Most salons create blonde in a ‘one size fits all’ process that results in a one-dimensional canary yellow blonde. bBlond recognizes that there is a world of blonde out there, and that there is a shade that works for everyone. Cool, platinum blonde flatters those with darker, olive tones, while warmer strawberry blondes work well for those with snow white complexions. Combined with a process that ‘brightens’ previously treated hair, bBlond hair looks healthy and sun-kissed.

    If you’ve always wanted natural looking blonde hair, or if you’re looking to recapture a natural blonde you once had, please call or email Studio Taka for a consultation appointment.

Q & A’s

Q. How does bBlond grow out? Will I get noticeable roots right away?

A. bBlond grows out extremely well. In fact, you won’t see any noticeable roots for 3 to 4 weeks, therefore our bBlond clients can go 2 to 3 weeks longer in between appointments.

Q. I have some grey hair. Would bBlond work for me?

A. Yes, if you are less than 30% grey, bBlond will actually make the grey hair less noticeable. If you are more than 30% grey, please make an appointment for a consultation, We’ll come up with the right strategy for you.

Q. How much does bBlond process cost?

A. It will cost anywhere from $120 to $235(excluding a haircut).  bBlond is a completely customized system because every one’s hair color and skin color is uniquely different. A partial highlight with a simple one step bBlond process will cost the least, and a full highlight with multi-step bBlond process will cost the most, and so on. It all depends on what kind of effect you would like for your hair. Upon consultation, we can suggest what kind of process is the best to achieve the most flattering results for you. There might be an additional charge for long hair, thick hair, virgin hair, and corrective color with bBlond.

Q. I have very dark hair. Will I still be able to have natural looking blonde hair with bBlond?

A. Unfortunately, if you have black hair, we will not be able to create natural looking blonde hair even with bBlond. If you have dark brown hair, it might be possible. Please make an appointment for a consultation so we can determine if bBlond is right for you.

Q. I have curly hair. Would bBlond work for my hair?

A. Yes, bBlond works perfectly with almost any texture of hair.

Q. My hair turns orange easily. How will bBlond work on my hair?

A. bBlond will work beautifully with your hair. We do realize a lot of clients have this problem. We have special formulation to prevent your hair from turning orange.

Q. Does bBlond work on men’s hair?

A. Yes, if you have light brown to dark blonde hair, bBlond is a perfect way to emulate the sun kissed look. You can expect your hair to look very much like how it used to look in your childhood. On men’s hair, bBlond works best with short hair. If you have long hair, please make an appointment for a consultation.
