FAQs

Question #1 – I want pastel or silver-colored hair, but my hair is dark. Is it possible? And what should I expect for upkeep?

Answer #1 : It is possible, depending on your hair; meaning, if there is past permanent color or previous highlighting damage, it may take us a few visits to achieve. Keep in mind that the darker your natural hair, the more noticeable the grow-out will be. Hair grows about a half-inch a month.  Expect your salon visits to be more frequent if you want to keep it light, bright, and toned how you want it.

Question #2 – What is the difference between highlights and a bleach and tone?

Answer #2 :

Highlights are put in foils to add variation and depth to the hair. It may also include lowlights to make the hair look more natural. A bleach and tone is a two step lightening service done all over to create an even tone/color for the hair.  With highlights you can go approximately 6-8 weeks between appointments for upkeep. A bleach and tone is more demanding, allowing only 4 weeks between appointments. If you commit to a bleach and tone, the initial service will be more in depth, whereas your next appointment in 4 weeks will just be a retouch for the roots. If you do not come back in time for your retouch, banding may occur to the hair.

 

Question #3 – If I have dark hair, how light can I go in one sitting?

Answer #3 :

As much as your hair cuticle will safely allow. Hair types vary and we prefer maintaining the integrity of your hair. Keep in mind if your hair is previously colored with a permanent color, we cannot guarantee that your hair will lift to expectation. We will always suggest a bond protector or a treatment to keep your hair healthy.

Question #4 – What is Olaplex?

Answer #4 :

Hair bonds are broken during thermal, mechanical and chemical services. Olaplex is a two part treatment used in color to help sustain the structure of the hair by protecting the natural proteins and bonds. We commonly use this for any high lift services. With Olaplex you can safely go further lightening hair than without using  a bond protector.
