No matter what you do or who you talk to, there is a common thread that there is a certain level of expectations not being met. Now this ranges from salary, sex life, boyfriend/girlfriend goals to hair color and travel. Can’t really help you with the rest but want you to be aware of the following.
We have social media flooded with images of hair color, some real most photoshopped to the verge of unrealistic with most clients thinking it’s fairly easy, when in fact it’s a 12-16 hour color job but they want to be booked in be finished before lunchtime on a Saturday. We have hairdressers photoshopping colors to enhance them, clients using 3-5 filters to get that wow factor to enhance their feed.
We recently had a client with coloured black hair, wanting to have “just a few white highlights” then once we explained the process and the time involved almost looked like we were lying 🤥 it’s not a color you just slap on and that too on black hair.
Some people want instant and have very little concern for healthy of hair, Maintainence or anything as long as you can get s few good photo’s for your feed. Coloring hair is not as simple as choosing a box in our magical back room and putting it in a bowel, it is based on your hair history, condition, target color and the texture & strength of your hair.
Asking your friend what color they used and doing the same will never work it’s completely different from person to person as every single head of hair is not only different but has been through different things so it has to be treated separately.
If your thinking of a color change and looking for something that’s going to “Pop” come in and discuss it first to see if it’s realistic and what would it involve not only to do but to maintain. After years training we kind of know how to do color and what’s involved in achieving the best. We love talking hair and will always tell you fairly easily if your expectations are more like a Disney movie than reality.
