What is a colour correction?
A “colour correction” is meant to fix a colour service that had undesirable results.
Most people can understand that a colour correction is needed for brassy, orange highlights, or at-home colour
that came out differently than desired (picture green or jet black hair instead of medium brown).
Something that may seem like an easy fix or regular colour service, though, isn’t always so cut-and-dry.
Some colour corrections can be simple, like doing a toner to cut out gold, but others can be a
triple-process to lift dark colour out. The latter is where time and cost can drastically increase.
Could the dark brown colour you’ve been getting professionally coloured for 6 years need to be
“corrected” to get cool blonde highlights? Absolutely. Even though you’ve been getting desired results from
your stylist for a long t
ime, you need to remember that changing things up may be more difficult than you think.
In the salon environment, stylists see a colour correction as when a guest wants to take previously coloured hair at least
2 levels lighter or take previously coloured or virgin hair at least 2 levels darker.
Can it be done in one day?
It can sometimes be done in one day but often need multiple salon visits, it all depends on your current hair colour and condition as to which steps need to be taken to achieve your desired goal.
We all know that there’s some gorgeous Pinterest transformations out there, but please remember that it all involves a lot of time, caring and it costs too.
How much does it cost?
This service involves a lot of time, products and knowledge. Usually you’ll find that colour correction prices starts from £200, depending on your current hair and what you want to achieve. The quote you receive from us, will usually include everything that’s required for your service, such as blow dry, cut, toners and hair treatment…
