August is approaching us and we all know what that means! Fall fashion trends will be hitting the streets. Hair color plays a big role in fashion for every season. Before you make any kind of big change, I would consider consulting with your hair dresser. There are a few key things that decided whether or not this change is for you this season.
Can your hair handle it?
Some of the hair trends that are going on right now, especially the vivid hair color trends require a lot out of your hair. Can your hair handle being lifted to the underlying pigment that is required to make that hair color. This will be discussed in the consultation with your hairdresser, and you need to believe them when they say it won’t happen. In my opinion i’d rather have healthy hair then anything else.
Can you handle the process?
Some hair colors require a process to get you to your desired look. This is mainly for people that want to go from a dark hair color to an extremely light hair color. This process can take up to four to six months to achieve and you may or may not love the process in between. Going through the process is a necessary step to get your desired look in a manner that is safe for your hair.
Some Hair colors require a lot of maintenance, such has toners and color refreshers. If you are not willing to refresh your color at home with take home product, and you are not willing to come in to touch up your hair then the color will not look the same. Being behind the chair I have noticed that some clients refuse to take care of the hair color. That being said I make sure to let my clients know that with out caring for what we have just created in a few week the look will no longer be the same.
