The Application Process

Before we start applying the color, we’ll assess your hair and ask you about the look you’re trying to achieve. Usually, our clients choose a root color that is closest to their natural shade, so they can avoid coming back soon after their last visit. After that, we’ll section your hair and start the application process by smudging the color on your outgrowth to a little past where the lighter color meets. Our goal is to make the shades melt together for a sleek, soft appearance that will turn heads.

Once your color has been applied, feel free to read one of our many magazines as you wait or take a peek at our display of products, such as shampoos, conditioners, and hairsprays. We’ll periodically check on your hair to see how it’s coming along.
