Important Considerations Before Receiving Salon Hair Color Services
We all want to look our best. It is true. When changing the color of our own hair there are usually many questions and answers to consider. As a professional hair stylist and hair colorist for many years, I have answered countless important questions from my clients about receiving hair coloring and highlighting Hair Perm services. I will also answer the questions that submit in this article to give you a head begin the information you need to be familiar with when purchasing a hair color service at your salon. Should certainly we begin?
Will this hair color make me look younger? Yes, a new hair color can make us look years younger, if the correct one is chosen. Dull hair is essentially loss of color pigment in the hair follicle all together. It can make us looked washed out and much older. When we have our dull hair colored it brings depth and color to your skin also. This is accomplished by the hair color reflecting on to our skin tone, eyes, lip area and so on. Having the hair colored appropriately with somewhat of a warm color, and then adding highlights, will take years off of our looks. This is because we have enhanced our looks with depth and then brought a bit of light back into the hair in contrast to the depth. It will be up to you and your hair stylist to choose the best color for you and your hair.
A professional tip for older women: Black color is most always too harsh looking on older women. Also a very blonde color is usually too light for older women. This is almost always the case.
Will the color look harsh on me? If you choose a hair color that is natural looking, it will not look harsh for you. For example: If you are young, and want to enhance your own hair color. Your stylist will choose a color akin to what you already have. Younger people can get away and with drastic changes in their hair color because they generally have vibrant skin tones. Although, if a young person decides a black color for instance, and their hair color is not naturally black, this can sometimes be very harsh looking to them also. Like wise, when young people with very dark hair, try to go all over blonde, it can be a too harsh for the same reasons.
The solution in these circumstances is that it is best to not try drastic changes. If you feel you must make these major changes in your hair color. It is best to accomplish it gradually by adding low lights, (darker positionings of color), or highlights, ( lighter positionings of color). Will the hair color damage my hair? That is one of the number one questions that people ask most about coloring services. Hair color that is deposit only color, will not harm the hair. This is because the hair is being covered with a color primarily on the outside of layer of the hair. This color choice is always one shades deeper than your existing hair color.
On the other hand, a color chosen one shades lighter than your existing color may well be more damaging because of the use of a lifting agent involved. You see, when going lighter with your hair color, there is always a lifting process used to make your natural color many shades lighter. Such as nice hair stylist determines, to own proper out come of the final hair color. The color desired is actually being put in the account in the last fifteen to thirty five minutes of the process, depending on the color line being used. Thus, the hair can become a bit clothing dryer from the lighter hair coloring process. We have color care shampoos and conditioners to fix the drying affect of the hair color. The result, beautiful hair.
If you’ve a bleaching or highlighting services done to their hair. The hair will be clothing dryer from the use of bleach, or other lightening products with the addition of developer. Again, there are many remedies on the market to alleviate the drying affect of coloring services made available to the hair. Not to worry.
How often can i have to have a touch up? A very popular question from today’s clients. Usually that is determined by how fast each personal hair grows individually. Yes, because the development is the main reason for holding up hair color. Usually three to four weeks is recommended for all over hair color touch ups. But I have had clients have to have a color touch up since a fortnight this can hair growing more quickly.
I would recommend that you never allow nice hair development to grow longer than one inch before you receive your color touch up. There are color enhancing services offered for in between your color touch ups. These color enhancing products do not fit nicely on every hair type due to texture. Coarse hair types will not always accept color.
How much will the service cost? It is expected that the customer ask this question before the color services are rendered. There are many times, that there is hidden costs in coloring services due to the amount of products needed for proper coverage of the hair. Most salons require the stylist or colorist to give the client a predicted figure of how much the service will cost. Each salon has their individual prices and color lines. A wise consumer will do their homework before hand, by finding out the price of the services at the salon they have chosen.
Is it possible to color or highlight overly curly hair? Yes, it is. Coloring services are around for all hair types. Stylists use individual techniques to color each hair type. This is decided by your individual hair stylist.
Will the color lose colour? Now this is a very broad question with various answers. Hair color fading is due to many factors. Firstly which is, the ability of the hair to hold hair color. We call this porosity. If the hair is overly porous it will have a problem holding hair color. There are ways a stylist can usually alleviate this problem. Once in a while the hair is so damaged it absolutely impossible for the hair to hold color. Your stylist should always have the skills to gauge these situations, and recommend certain conditioning treatments to bring the hair back to a normal porosity.
Hair colors come in sets of: Temporary, demi permanent, partially permanent, permanent. Each color line has recommendations on the categories and of uses of their particular types of hair colors. Each line has color enhancers, color glosses and so on. I recommend you have your stylist or colorist educate you on the types he or she will be using on your hair and why. This will help you when choosing shampoos and conditions that will help sustain hair color between coloring services.
The most challenging question and statement a stylist or colorist can receive is: Can you correct this hair color I applied at home? It looks terrible! In a health club love doing corrective hair coloring. A lot of hair stylist do not like this area of our field. Be sure your stylist has plenty of experience of this type of hair coloring if you need this service rendered. I really won’t go too in depth here about corrective hair coloring, accept that, usually a botched at home color can be adjusted with the following: Time at the salon for the a static correction. Money, as this service can be expensive. Cooperation with, and trust in, the hair stylist’s or hair colorist’s judgment.
As a professional hair stylist I have always felt that clients need as much knowledge as possible to help them better communicate with their hair stylist. I hope this article will be of help to you when you have a hair coloring service rendered.
