With all the new hair color techniques, like ombre’ and sombre’, it can be complicated for our receptionists to know the best way to schedule your service. Here are some tips for scheduling your color appointment:
- Know your ultimate hair color goal.
Do you want to cover gray? Brighten up your color? Try on a new technique? The more you can tell us about your vision for what you want to achieve, the better job we can do in making your dream a reality. Do you want a color weave with foils, an all over color or a specialized color like ombre’ or sombre’?
- Bring us a picture.
The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words” holds true when it comes to getting the color you want. It’s hard to describe color! We love it when people bring us pictures so we can see what you’re thinking. Feel free to bring in more than one picture too. Sometimes there are different elements
you’ll like from several pictures.
- Let us know how long it’s been since you last hair color.
We need to know how long it’s been since your last color and how long your roots are to decide on the best way to give you the look you want. We may need to schedule extra time to blend the difference between your natural color that’s growing out and the last color you had applied.
- Let us know how much hair you have.
To know how much time to schedule for your appointment we need to know how long and thick your hair is. Is your hair above or below your shoulders? Have people told you all your life that you have enough hair for two or three people? We need to know this so we can reserve the perfect amount of time for you. Nothing stresses stylists out more than running behind because they didn’t have enough time scheduled. They hate to make people wait as much as people hate waiting!
- Tell us if you have a box color on your hair.
The color you buy in the grocery store and apply yourself is a tempting way to get by between appointments. The concern is many box colors have chemicals, like metallic salts, that react with professional color products and may cause damage to the hair and scalp. If you have box color on your hair, fess up and let us know so we can take precautions. We promise we won’t judge you.
- Come in for a consultation.
Just like doctors can’t diagnose illnesses over the phone, we can’t tell you what we’re able to do with your color until we see your hair. This is especially true with corrective color. We can give you best idea of how we can achieve your vision, how much time it will take and how much the charge will be by consulting with you in person. Live too far away or have too much going on to make it into the salon for a consultation? Give us a call at 316-267-8000 and we’ll tell you how to text or email a selfie to us. Our team will check it out and give you a call to make recommendations.
