There is nothing much scarier than wanting to make a change to your color, and having it end up in disaster.
TV commercials mislead the public to believe that beautiful, multi-tonal color can be achieved from utilizing a box of color you pick up from the grocery store. Nothing could be further from the truth. I hate to break it to you, but Eva Longoria does not achieve her rich, espresso brunette by squeezing a bottle of color on her hair in her bathroom.
There is no such thing as one-size-fits all color. Human hair varies in color as well as in underlying tones.
For example, you have strawberry blondes or beige blondes. The strawberry blonde hair possesses warm tones, where the beige blonde has cool tones. There is no way for color from a box to consider these factors while processing your hair color. Thus people who attempt to go blonde from darker colors tend to turn orange. Another factor that isn't taken into consideration is the damage that box color can do to your hair. Box color contains a preservative called Metallic Salts. This can cause long-term damage to the hair as well as chemical reactions with other processes, such as highlighting, resulting in hair loss. Another common situation clients present with is the, "my friend is in hair school and did my color for free." While cosmetology students do need lots of practice, and volunteers are encouraged and appreciated, it can often end with a not so flattering outcome.
The good news is, no matter how you ended up with orange, green, or whatever color disaster you have, it can be fixed. During our consultation, we will determine the goals for your hair color and discuss the plan for achieving it while maintaining the integrity of your hair. I use several luxury color brands such as Schwarzkopf, Redken, and Chi. We are sure to create the custom color formula to turn that hair don't into a hair Do!
