Hair Color is Our Passion!
Feel like a change? A new hair color could be just the thing you need! Your hair color change need not be a dramatic transformation, even a subtle change in color can make a difference. If you want to show off your features, look a little younger or give hair volume and shine, hair color can help. Tell us your concerns and we'll make suggestions and go over the different options for hair color and their benefits. We can choose from permanent hair color or semi-permanent color, toners and glosses. Of course we can talk about lighteners too, such as highlights or adding more blonde to your hair.

YOUR GUIDE TO ALL THE HAIR COLOR LINGO
Single process can mean a few things. A single process hair color service is one that can be processed in one step. A single development time, a single shampoo. An example of a single process color is all over color...one shade applied all over, covering the entire head. There are three levels of single process color: semi-permanent, demi-permanent, and permanent, each vary in strength and in how long they last. This process changes the color of your entire head of hair, giving you a new, one-dimensional tone.
A gloss service is a single process color but you get a two in one benefit. Using a demi-permanent color, color is applied all over the head with added shine and softness. So if you come in for a haircut in between your big color services, consider adding a gloss service to give your color a refresh. A demi-permanent gloss service is also a nice option for those who like dramatic color changes. If you go red during the winter and plan on lightening up in the spring, a demi-permanent color is easier for us to lift off later.
By contrast, a double process hair color service requires multiple steps. It's almost like getting two different services in one visit. The first step is applied, processed, and rinsed before the next process can begin.
Examples of a double process hair color:
- All over color + foil highlights. This service updates your overall base color before highlights are added.
- Bleach + Tone. This service lightens your entire head first, then a toner is applied to neutralize any harsh or brassy tones.
- Vivid Color. Typically, before a vivid hair color can be applied, the entire head must be lightened in order to create a light canvas and maximize color fidelity and intensity. Then pigment, or multiple pigments, is applied to create the desired look.
Covering resistant grey hairs is a job best left to a skilled hair colorist. They can quickly get rid of unwanted white or grey hair with the correct formulation and a precision application. Your hair stylist can assess how your color varies around your head and make adjustments. This will assure there is no overlapping of color – often the result of using box hair dye - only beautiful healthy, shiny looking hair!
To avoid a color difference between your roots and the rest of your hair, it is important that you book a root touch up appointment at regular intervals. A root touch up service is designed to cover new growth and grey hair with single color applied to the roots.
A root smudge service is not the same as a root touch up! After getting blonde highlights, some clients like to have a blended effect especially at the top of the head. They don't like the ribbon effect that foil highlights can reveal on some hair. A root smudge service is a demi permanent hair color applied to just the roots in order to deepen the color at the base, which tones down lightened pieces and gives that shadow root look to highlighted hair.
It's a new age in hair color. Wearing bright, funky hair color isn't so shocking anymore. From rainbow hair to subtle rose gold tones, there's no one way to play your fantasy hair color. Whether you're ready to dive into mermaid hair or experiment with softer shades of violet, pink or green hair color, we'll help you express your personal style!
We use high quality professional hair pigments which can be intermixed to create a completely unique look for you. They also fade true to tone over time, which means they'll wash out without losing the shade values. Your ocean blue won't turn into mint green!
We can do it, whether you want a a single vivid color or a rainbow of color. Mermaid hair, unicorn hair, Rihanna red, violet hair, purple hair, green hair, blue hair, granny grey hair, silver hair, metallic hair.
Hair Color Correction, Color Removal
It can be tempting to try a quick fix for a hair color disaster, but this can sometimes make the problem worse. It’s important to seek the advice of professionals as soon as possible, so contact us and we'll get you in as soon as we can. We know how traumatic it can be to not like the way you look or not look like yourself!
Do I Need Hair Color Correction? Just because you're overdue for a color appointment doesn't mean you need hair color correction. Here are a few more dramatic situations where you might need a hair color intervention:
- Repeated use of box hair dyes have left you patchy results
- You damaged your hair with an at-home bleach or peroxide job
- You let your friend attempt a balayage on your hair
- Your hair has turned orange or green
Please don't be too ashamed to give us a call! We have seen it all when it comes to hair color problems, including over bleached hair, streaky highlights and even green hair. Common issues include, but are not limited to:
Brassy blonde hair color: Hair that is improperly bleached or bleached hair that is overexposed to the sun can turn orange. We can correct brassy tones by using professional products and treatments to neutralize yellow or orange tones.
Flat, dark hair color: A drug store box dye disaster can result in an unnatural, shoe polish looking hair color. We can lift out unwanted color and/or add highlights or lowlights to create the look of natural dimension.
Bleach damaged hair: Only an expert should apply chemicals to your hair in order to avoid burning, breakage or serious damage to the length and condition of your hair during the lightening process. When it comes to reversing hair damage or preventing further damage, we recommend bond building treatments like B3 Brazilian Bond Builder.
Home balayage gone wrong: Balayage is a technical hair coloring service that should be left to the experts. If you tried a home highlighting and you don't look like the model, please book a consultation. Using a combination of highlights, lowlights, a toner or color gloss, we can blend in harsh colors and offset unwanted shades.
