When it comes to colouring hair, it is often tempting to try and do it yourself so that you don’t have to find the spare time to visit a salon or pay for a professional to do it for you. However, attempting to colour your own hair, even with the enlisted help of a friend, is not an easy task nor is it a sensible option. It is far better to pay someone who knows what they are doing rather than try to do it yourself, as you won’t risk getting the colour wrong or having your hair fall out if you use the wrong product.
Finding a Stylist
If you want to find a locally based hairdresser, then the best thing that you can do is look for one online. You can find a good hairdressers in Subiaco, Milton Keynes, Bangkok, Barcelona or wherever you live by looking online but if it is the first time you have used their services, then you should do all of the following to ensure that you find one you can rely on to do a good job:
- Read online reviews written by other customers
- Check out testimonials
- Look at a list of their services
- Check out a portfolio of previous work on their website
- Contact them to judge their professionalism
You will need to enquire about their rates, as well as what they can do for you and you might want to visit them in their salon or ask them to do a home visit, and home visits are particularly popular with brides who want to get their hair done for their wedding.
When it comes to colouring hair, there is a real skill as to how long you need to leave the colour on for, where the colour should be placed, how much you need to apply, how it should be applied and of course what products you should use. It is also important to ensure that you take good care of your hair when washing the colour out by using deep conditioning treatments to improve your hair and also to enhance the colour.
Below are a few examples of the most popular hair colouring services available:
- Colour correction
- Colour refresh
- Tint regrowth
You can get a full head of colour, half a head or just get strips coloured and any good hair colouring professional will be able to offer you advice about which option will best suit you according to your style and your budget.
Attempting to colour your own hair at home can have disastrous consequences and should be avoided at all costs. If you are on a tight budget, then you can take advantage of deals like student discounts or special offers and also using a junior stylish is usually a cheaper option.
