Dark hair shatush

Natural beauty is the trend of recent seasons. Even if a stylist worked on your image for several hours, this should not be noticeable to others. Shatush is one of the dyeing techniques that add stylish accents to the hairstyle, while preserving its naturalness. Highlighting has a lot of advantages, it is well suited for women of any age and for almost all shades of the base. However, the dark curls shatush falls most advantageously. Consider what pleasant changes in the image can get brown-haired women and brunettes with the help of modern partial coloring, and how to do it correctly.


The coloring of the shatush for burning brunettes and brown-haired women fits perfectly, since on a dark base light strands are viewed very effectively. The technique assumes a smooth transition from dark roots to bright ends, the borders are blurred, and therefore the feeling is created that it was not the experienced craftsmen who worked on your curls, but the sun itself. From the roots, an indentation of 2-3 cm is made; the dye does not touch the scalp.

The technique is similar to balayazh, which also brightens the tips, but the contrast between the transitions is less noticeable, which allows to achieve the effect of naturalness of the hair.

Both natural and synthetic dyes can be used in this type of highlighting. Natural compositions allow not only to change the color of the order, but also give a caring effect, they contain in their composition nutrients and moisturizers.

Another feature of technology - painting in the open air. There is no need to use foil or thermal paper, which reduces the risk of burning curls. The aggressive impact of chemical agents is minimized, the hair shaft is not destroyed.

Advantages and disadvantages

Choose shatush on long dark hair or curls of medium length is worth it for several reasons. First of all, the technology is gentle, with proper care, you can restore the strength and shine of the curls after the procedure quite quickly.

Painting does not take as much time as other types of highlighting, it can be done not only in the salon, but also at home. With minimal you will create a stunning image.

  • regrown roots do not stand out against the background of the hairstyle, so painting can be adjusted once every 3-4 months,
  • smooth play of light curls visually give the volume of hair,
  • technology allows you to hide gray hair, provided that it is not more than 30%,
  • highlighting allows you to go to the natural color of girls who completely dyed their hair,
  • Properly performed procedure will help to hide the shortcomings of previously unsuccessful staining: it will mask yellowness, even out color, etc.
  • natural smooth transitions rejuvenate the face, visually level the skin tone.

Despite the many advantages, there are also disadvantages. In the salon, the price of such a procedure can be quite high, as the technology is difficult to implement.

Very dark curls need to be lightened with rather aggressive oxidants, which can negatively affect their health.

In addition, the shatush will not play with all its highlights on short hair. To make a “stretch” of color, the strands must have an appropriate length, a minimum - up to the shoulders.

Tone Selection

The right shade is the key to a beautiful and stylish haircut. Very carefully should treat the clarification of dark curls. The master must take into account all the features of the hair in order to achieve the desired result.

The oxidizer is selected depending on the type of hair and color saturation. Thin and porous curls are lightened with 3% oxide, but for thick and tough hair, for example, of the Asian type, means are chosen with a higher oxide content - from 9 to 12%.

The dye should differ from the base by only 2-3 tones, not more. Otherwise, the strands will highlight strongly, and we will not be able to achieve the effect of natural burnout.

Selecting shades, keep in mind that cold blends with a cold base, and warm ones - with a warm one. The color of the skin, the eyes and the natural color of the hair is also important; the scale should match your color type.

  • ashen,
  • walnut,
  • caramel,
  • milk chocolate,
  • gold,
  • beige,
  • copper.

Girls who want to stand out with their hair, you can use a bright and catchy shade. The multi-colored shatush looks particularly impressive in the dark curls of young and bold ladies. Experiments will be successful if you choose pink, red, red, blue and green tones.

However, it should be borne in mind that the extreme palette looks harmoniously only at the tips; if applied to the entire length, the hairstyle will turn out to be too flashy and fancy.

Highlighting this type should not be done if you have a strict dress code at school or at work.

Options for choosing the color of shatush dyeing for dark hair

At homehair coloring technology "shatush" would be appropriate to carry it on dark hair. So you can easily achieve the desired contrast.

The main condition is that the chosen colors for creating the glare should not differ much from the main tone for a natural hue transition.

Professionals are advised to follow the choice of the color scheme of the classical scheme 4 color types of appearance: winter, summer, spring, autumn.

Warm shades will be better combined with dark skin and natural brown hair. These are people of two color types: spring and autumn.

Representatives of winter and summer have a bright contrasting appearance. Their distinctive features: light skin in combination with dark or light natural hair color.

The color of the eyes of such people is usually very light or, on the contrary, dark. Therefore, they are perfectly suited to all the cold shades of any color.

For coloring strands, you can use 1 or more colors 1-3 tones lighter than the main one. Any natural shades of nut, gold, copper, chocolate, caramel, ashen, honey, wheat, silver colors effectively combine with dark hair color.

Note! You should not choose to dye dark hair blond shades of blond. The effect of this staining will be the opposite of the desired.

In some cases, it is permissible to use brighter uncommon colors: red, blue, violet. This combination will help create a shocking image.

The subtleties of coloring on different hair

Different hair requires a different approach not only in the care, but also in painting. There are no trifles here; every nuance is important: length, structure, presence of a previously performed dyeing or chemical perm, condition of curls.

Natural color also matters. If you have a very dark hair on the nature, paints for lightening will not give any effect, you need to use only special powder.

The shape of the haircut is another significant moment. On a short square or pixie, Shatush will not look attractive, but medium or long hairstyles are another matter entirely.

Consider what features the coloring of different types of curls.

We have already found out that the short base is not suitable for highlighting, since it is impossible to create a smooth play of shades on it. It is desirable that the haircut was at least on the shoulders, only in this case will be able to achieve a good effect.

Medium length curls work well in this technique, you can create soft transitions. Perfectly looks shatush on long hair. The master can affect both the entire length of the strand with indentation from the roots, and only the tips.

Variations of a combination of shades - weight, as long as they are in harmony with the base color. Photos of girls who chose shatush, confirm that the technique allows you to transform and make the image more refined.

Whether the curls have previously succumbed to full staining is very important. The easiest way to work with natural color, since after the growth of roots, the transition will be invisible. If you have acquired your shade with the help of dyes, the master will need to choose a tone that is most similar to the natural one, which is quite difficult.

Particular difficulties arise if the hair is painted black. You may need to pre-wash the pigment and color alignment. For clarification, compositions with a high content of oxide, mainly powder, are taken.

Due attention to the master should devote time keeping the paint on the hair, so as not to overdry them, but to get the desired result.

  1. Curls from the top of the head are attached with clips to the top of the head, begins applying the dye from the bottom of the head.

  • In a chaotic manner, the master selects strands 2 cm wide each from the total weight of the hair and secures them with clips.

Dependence on hair length

Not every master will undertake the execution of shatush for short hair. The fact is that lack of length does not allow the specialist to demonstrate the smoothness of the transition.

  3. The paint on the strands should be applied in chaotic strokes, starting from the tips and moving towards the base of the hair. Make a light shading of the dye to the top. Do not use paint for the roots, because there must remain a natural color.
  4. In a similar way, color the whole head.
  5. Watch out for color. Exposure time - 15-30 minutes, depending on the expected result.
  6. Rinse your hair thoroughly and use the conditioner to brush your hair better.

Council of hairdressers. To check whether the desired color has turned out on your curls, use a cotton pad moistened with water. Highlight a small strand and carefully swab over it, washing away the dye.

Post-hair treatment

Although the shatush on dark hair of medium length and below the shoulders is considered one of the most gentle methods of dyeing, you still need to carefully care for curls. For this:

  • do not brush wet locks,
  • choose the right shampoo and balm (it is better that they belong to the same series, for example, “for colored hair”),
  • use silicone protection that envelops the hair, making it resistant to the effects of the external environment and mechanical stimuli,
  • make nourishing masks with a natural base (honey, yolk, kefir), and also rinse strands with a decoction of herbs (chamomile, burdock, oak bark),
  • Do not turn on too hot water for washing your head,
  • limit the use of thermo-devices,
  • try to avoid a long stay in the sun, if you have forgotten a headdress at home,

  • shatush is a rather expensive dyeing method. Its cost varies with hair length,
  • ammonia-containing dyes are used to lighten the strands, which adversely affects the health of the hair,
  • shatush is rather complicated in execution, therefore its version without a pile is not recommended to be done independently,
  • girls with a natural blond should choose a different dyeing technique, since the bright shade of the hair will not show color transitions that the shatush suggests.
  • The minimum hair length required for coloring is shoulder length,
  • Before proceeding to staining, you need to conduct a course of treatment of damaged hair.

The choice of shade on blonde hair

Dyeing shatush (photo below) on light shades of blond is different in that hair tinting is an optional step in the procedure. Lightened strands on such hair look naturally without additional manipulations.

Before applying the coloring composition it is necessary to make sure that the selected shade has a difference with the natural hair color at least 2 shades. Otherwise, due to the lack of color transition, the meaning of coloring is lost.

The best shades for the bright shatusha will be:

Shatush for long and short hair: the differences in coloring

The technology of shatush coloring for long and short hair is no different, but it has some peculiarities:

  1. On short hair, you need to carefully distribute the pigment to create a smooth transition from dark to light shade.
  2. Due to the small distance between the roots and the tips, the coloring can look more bright than on long hair.
  3. You should not do shatush on short hair by yourself. To do this, you need to know which strands to choose for applying the brightener, so that as a result, French highlighting looks harmonious.

The length of short hair that covers the neck is optimal for dyeing.

There are many haircuts that are suitable in length, but the best shatush looks with:

  • quads
  • elongated bean
  • asymmetrical haircut,
  • laying waves
  • straight hair with careless styling.

Long hair will allow you to perform shatush without too much difficulty, so beginners are advised to master the technique at precisely that length.

  • hairbrush,
  • comb with fine teeth,
  • paint brush

If the procedure is carried out at home without the participation of the colorist, special attention should be paid to the choice of paint to avoid the effect of yellowness and other undesirable reactions.

Strands that have already been applied to the dye should not be covered with foil or a plastic cap. For high-quality clarification requires free access to oxygen. Coloring by this technology is called "open highlighting."

What is the difference between the techniques of shatush from highlighting, balayazh and ombra?

Modern dyeing techniques such as shatush, balayazh and ombra are considered variations of highlighting. Despite their similarity, each of the methods has its own characteristics.

Shatush dyeing differs from other coloring methods by the method of applying dye and the distribution of shades on the hair. The diagram in the photo below clearly demonstrates this difference.

Highlighting - brightening individual thin strands of hair using foil. Modern types of highlighting (Californian, Venetian) create the effect of sun glare on the hair. It is achieved through the use of 2-4 cold shades close to the natural hair color. This coloring technique is ideal for fair-haired girls.

Ombre suggests a transition from dark color at the roots to a light shade at the tips. The technique is performed by the gradient dyeing of hair, in which one color is gradually replaced by another. For this effect, use more than 8 shades of paint. Ombre is used not only for classical coloring in natural colors. It looks unusual with a color palette of colors.

Balayazh is an ombre type in which the gradient is performed not with a sharp transition between contrasting shades, but with the use of a soft palette of colors to create a smooth color change.

Shatush coloring technique will add elegance and refresh any image, therefore it is considered universal and is very popular among women of all ages. Photos highlighting different shades will help determine the choice and choose the best option.
