Gloss or Glaze?

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 | COLUMN: Tips & How-Tos

On a recent trip to my favorite hair salon, Azar Salon in Atlanta, owner Michael Azar helped me finally find the answer I needed to the burning question: which is better, gloss or glaze?

Q: My natural red hair looks dull and is starting to show a few gray streaks. I’d like to try a gloss or a glaze, but what’s the difference?

A: A gloss adds shine, adjusts the tone and lasts two to four weeks. A glaze coats the shaft with shine and semi-permanent color.

My choice: I went with a semi-permanent glaze that looks super natural, covers the gray and gives me healthy shine. Love it!

Apply to the skin as you would any lotion, and in a flash you’ve got a streak-free glow, complete with subtly shimmering copper and gold undertones. It’s a super simple way to step into summer with confidence!
