NEW At-Home Colour from John Frieda

Did you know that the most common blends that you’ll see your colorist mix when at the salon are NOT the ones you’ll find on the shelf for at-home color?  Well, the John Frieda® Hair Care experts have been working to fix this problem… enter the new Precision Foam Colour Salon Blends!

“When my clients come into the salon, I use colors from a professional shade palette to create exclusive blends customized to their skin tone and desired color,” explains John Frieda® Creative Colour Director Nicola Clarke. “The shades I create shades are hugely popular because you typically can’t get them in home hair color —it takes a professional to blend the basic tones expertly. I worked with John Frieda® Hair Care to share some of the most popular, flattering blends I create at the salon, transforming them into shades of Precision Foam Colour.”  

The product: The five new colors of Precision Foam Colour Salon Blends include:
  • Dark Caramel Blonde (Natural/Beige/Gold)
  • Dark Cool Pearl Blonde (Pearl/Beige/Natural)
  • Lightest Cool Almond Brown (Pearl/Beige/Natural)
  • Light Bronze Brown (Natural/Beige/Copper)
  • Light Amber Brown (Natural/Beige/Gold)


Each cost $12.99 and can be found at food, drug and mass retailers nationwide.

What I thought: Well, I did receive the Dark Caramel Blonde Precision Foam Colour Salon Blends. I have never dyed my own hair. Once (in my early 20s) my friend helped me highlight it at home. That didn't turn out so great. It was OK, but we got too much on top so it looked silly for  while. After that I started having blonde highlights put into my hair at a salon. It was a good look for me, and I was always nervous about completely coloring it.

So when I got the John Frieda color, I thought it looked like a great one. I thought I'd be brave enough to give it a try. But I guess I'm still nervous about coloring my hair completely. I have no doubts that I will probably do it some day when I have some grays to cover up. For now I'm pretty fortunate that I haven't seen any of those yet.

When I decide to give it a try, I'll be sure to tell you what I think. In the meantime, I like the idea of this Salon Blends color. I think it will be great color to try.

Where to buy: Each cost about $12.00 and you can find them at food, drug and mass retailers nationwide.
