How can I best prepare for my hair color appointment?

  • Bring pictures of your desired look
  • Avoid swimming pools at least a week before, the chemicals used can remain in the hair and cause an adverse reaction
  • Avoid heavy styling products 

How can I best take care of my hair color?


Most shampoos are too harsh and can cause hair color to fade. A sulfate free shampoo is highly recommended. Sulfate is a common ingredient, often found in detergents and toothpaste, good for getting rid of product build up however not beneficial for colored hair.

Sun Exposure

Think of your new hair color, like a work of art in a museum. Constant sun exposure can cause hair color to fade or lighten in shade. Leave in conditioner or a serum can help preserve your work of art along with a hat or scarf.


Salt and swimming pool chemicals will affect most colors.  Avoid the ocean and pool if you have a high maintenance hair color; creative fashion colors fall victim to this.  If you must go for a dip, leave in conditioner is highly recommended 

Can you explain your pricing?
