4 reasons your next summer hair colour needs to be in-salon
Are you a do-it-yourself kind of girl? Do you make jewellery and pluck your own brows? Are you handier than your boyfriend when it comes to dealing with IKEA furniture? If you are, then that’s great –but when it comes to changing your hair up for summer, all the results point to the hair stylists.
It’s not that you probably don’t do a good job on your hair when colouring it at home, but if you want an amazing result for summer, then it’s well worth visiting a hairdresser. Want to know why? Sure. Check out four reasons that’ll see you booking in an appointment before you can say ‘regrowth’.
They can find the perfect summer colour for you
In these warmer months, we want our hair to scream ‘summer!’ We want the right shade, right style, and above all, it should look natural. One of the best things about seeing a professional is that they can take into account your hair colour, skin tone and lifestyle and give you the best colour to suit you. Above all, they will create a natural summer look that won’t look like you’ve dip-dyed your ends in a bucket of bleach!
You’ll avoid those unsightly errors
Have you ever tried to go lighter on your own? Playing with blonde hues at home can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing, especially if you’re trying to achieve a balayaged look. Summer might be long in Australia, but it’s too short to be spent hiding away in shame from a bad at-home colour! Heading to the salon to see the professionals means you won’t end up applying too much colour and ending up with a look you don’t want – or one that ruins your hair!
They can achieve unusual looks
Want apricot ends? Reverse balayage? No problem. Stylists have done years of training to be able to master these looks in a way that isn’t damaging for your hair, so it makes sense to utilise their expertise – especially if you’re feeling creative.
They’ll take the utmost care
Hairdressers have studied the science behind hair colours and know the exact combinations that are safe and effective to use on your hair. They also know how long colour should be left on your hair and which colours different hair types are compatible with. Better yet, stylists will ensure your experience is pampering – and more importantly, effective – from consultation all the way through to your blow-dry.
So, what should you be asking your hairdresser for to get the best summer look for your hair?
