Hair Colour Know How

HAIR COLOUR HAS THE POWER TO TRANSFORM… BUT HOW DO YOU GET THE MOST OUT OF A TRIP TO YOUR TONI&GUY SALON ?

HERE OUR TONI&GUY TECHNICIAN’S REVEAL THEIR TOP TIPS TO ACHIEVING YOUR BEST COLOUR YET;

Before your appointment;

Think Longterm; Think about the maintenance of a colour and if you can’t commit to an appointment every five or six weeks, then full bleach is not for you. But there are alternatives and Highlights, for example, are less of a commitment……..

Strand Test to guard against an allergic reaction;  We recommend booking in for a strand test at least a week before your colour appointment so that we can test to see what the colour will actually look like, which is particularly good for strong, vibrant shades.

Dirty Hair Don’t Care; Try not to wash your hair for at least 24 hours before your colour appointment as this can make the scalp more sensitive.

On the day;

Picture This; Visuals are a great way to show your technician what you’re hoping to achieve and images are better than trying to explain colours.

Go For The Chop;  Surprisingly, a haircut can really make your colour pop. Discarding damaged hair will also achieve the best colour all the way through from the root to the tip.

INSURE YOUR HAIR; Termed as ‘insurance for your hair’, Olaplex allows you to push the boundaries with your hair colour by restoring elasticity, strength and shine.  Olaplex enables us to take you even lighter without compromising the condition of the hair.

At home aftercare;

Don’t Wash Your Hair; Don’t wash your hair for at least a couple of days after your colour to let it settle. You should only wash your hair every three to four days anyway as it’s better for your hair.

Tone It Down; Every three weeks you can book in for a toner application (a toner and conditioner all in one) as this will tone, refresh and condition hair to prolong your colour.

Hair-recusing masks; label.m and Kerastase have full ranges of intensive masks so simply ask our technician’s which one is ideal for your hair type and scalp and enjoy your colour………..!
