At J. Joseph Salon, we can recommend a glaze for any situation.
From toning highlights, revitalizing and refreshing color, or simply conditioning and adding shine to the hair. Shades EQ Glosses are a multi-use tool that helps us as a colorist, and you as our guest.
Hair that has not been previously colored is in pristine form, and therefore is subject to the damage that can come with the use of lighteners and permanent colors.
Preserving the integrity of the hair, while also achieving our desired result is always our first goal. Additional treatments, such as ‘pH Bonder’ and ‘Olaplex’ are certainly a sure-fire way to preserve integrity.
However, sometimes it is better to start slowly into the world of color with a more subtle change. A glaze is a wonderful way to achieve this. By adding a new tone of warmth or cool, or a new shade completely, we can change your look while maintaining the condition of your hair.

Using the color wheel as our guide we are able to remove unwanted yellow tones or brassiness from the hair by neutralizing it with a violet or blue tone. Thus providing our guest with the ability to go between appointments with a ‘cushion’ from hard water and effects from the sun.”
