Hair dyeing is the most relevant procedure for all beautiful ladies who follow the latest innovations of the beauty industry and always strive to keep their finger on the pulse.
Today, the most natural images are still in vogue, but sometimes it seems that all these amber and highlights are created solely to promote new beauty products on the market. However, today there is a new method of coloring, which does not require any new products for performance, and the effect gives a truly stunning.
It's about new AirTouch (Air Touch), which have already managed to master and domestic hairdressers. What is the essence of the new technology and what is needed for its implementation - we tried to understand the material of this review.
AirTouch literally translates as "touch of air". In the very name of the technique lies the answer to the question of what, in fact, the essence of the "procedure". This type of coloring is made with the help of a hair dryer, which literally blows thinner and shorter hair from a strand. Thus, it is possible to avoid clear lines, such as when performing coloring in the technique of highlighting.
Among the main advantages This method of dyeing can be called its mild effect on the hair structure. This does not mean that the procedure does not harm your hair, but only suggests that the harmful effects can be minimized and re-dyeing is not necessary as often as with other methods.
This is not to say that this is a new coloring technique, since no one had to reinvent the wheel. Just one clever hairdresser from America one day invented how to improve the highlight and amber already known to everyone with a hair dryer. It is considered, however, that the creator of this technique is our compatriot Vladimir Sarbashev, but skeptics claim that he only perfected and perfected a method long invented by Hollywood style masters.
What is the Air Touch dyeing technique: step by step instructions
Coloring involves the clarification of previously dyed or natural hair. To make the coloring as natural as possible, the hair is initially divided into zones, each of which must be divided into strands. After that, each strand is blown with a hair dryer in such a way as to remove all short or weak strands, and leave only the longest.
Next, proceed directly to the staining. To do this, take a foil or special paper and begin to apply the coloring composition in such a way that there are no clear lines, for which they step back a little from the root zone and do not reach the very tips if the hair has previously been dyed in one way or another.
To the boundaries of staining were not clear, and formed a beautiful picture, it is necessary to slightly shade the applied paint. Make it as efficiently as possible using a dry brush.
Air Touch on dark and blond hair
AirTach technology can be applied on both dark and blond hair, as well as on hair of different lengths. On blond hair, you can achieve a lighter blond tone, and on dark hair - a lighter shade. You should not expect that with the base dark hair tone you can achieve blond shades, but making the strands lighter to get a beautiful pattern is a very real goal.
On blond hair, to achieve a beautiful effect of regrown hair, you can slightly darken the roots, choosing a shade that is closest to the natural shade. In addition, you can tint bleached strands in various shades of blond - from strawberry to steel. Regardless of the original hair color, dyeing using the AirTach technique allows to get very unexpected and spectacular results.

The cost of the staining procedure using AirTouch technology depends on many factors and varies from 8,000 to 20,000 rubles. Among the pricing factors include the following:
1. Reputation wizard. Painting in this technique from a famous stylist in a good salon will cost a bit more expensive, but you will get a guarantee of excellent results. In addition, a good master will not harm your hair and will even be able to add some caring ingredients to the standard procedure.
2. Materials with which the master works. Although there are gold standards for the AirTouch technique, some craftsmen use cheaper consumables and dye compounds that can harm your hair and cause many problems in the future. Agree that professional recovery after poor-quality clarification is a very expensive pleasure.
3. The location of the cabin. Salons located in the city center, as a rule, have big “ambitions”, but this does not mean at all that for big money here you will get better services.
4. The quantity and quality of additional services such as restorative procedures or other related hairdressing services.
The rather high cost is quite justified by the fact that such staining does not require frequent correction and can once every 5-6 months, not so much effect on the structure of the hair and is the most relevant and most natural.
On average, the procedure takes from 5 to 6 hours. Agree that such hard work of the master should be adequately paid. Based on this, by the way, it is worth considering that if you are a busy person, then you will have to find a sufficiently large “window” in your busy schedule to “bring beauty”.
Advantages and disadvantages of Air Touch technology
Summing up, it is worth noting that one of the main drawbacks of the AirTach dyeing method is the impossibility of performing at home. This is not to say that it was completely impossible, but in order to achieve truly high-quality coloring in this technique, you need to have considerable experience and certain skills. You shouldn’t even try to do the “procedure” on your own, as this is very inconvenient and you will hardly be able to achieve the desired effect.
In favor of this technique, the following features speak:
suitable for all hair types; runs on hair of almost any length; the procedure is gentle and can be performed with the addition of caring components; does not require frequent correction; looks amazing even 6 months after the procedure; allows you to experiment with color, etc.
If you are always accustomed to be in trend and follow all the innovations in the world of fashion and beauty, then not trying hair using AirTouch technology is a real crime against your image. Regardless of the length and color of your hair today, AirTach will add unique shades!
