What to Do Before Your Hair Coloring Appointment

It’s always exciting to try something new and get your hair colored, but in order to get the best results possible there are a few things you need to do.

First things first, keep your hair healthy and moisturized. If your hair is damaged, it is best not to get your hair colored to prevent further harm. Make sure you are deep conditioning and taking care of your hair in the weeks leading up to your appointment.

Second, avoid washing your hair the day of your appointment. We know it’s tempting to clean your hair before coming in, but hair color works best on hair that has not been freshly washed. If you need to wash your hair, do it a couple of days before.

Have realistic expectations for how long the process will take. If you’re just going for a couple shades lighter than your natural hair color, you may only be in the chair for a couple of hours, however if you are undergoing a more drastic change, such dark to light, be prepared for a couple of sessions to get to the color you want.

Bring more than one photo to your appointment. The more reference photos you bring, the more accurate your color will be. Have a conversation with your stylist about how the color will look with your skin tone and how closely they can match the overall style you are going for. It’s important for you and your stylist to be on the same page.

Lastly, consider the upkeep. How long do you want to keep your new hair color? Upkeep will be different depending on if you go for a more natural color vs. a bright pink. Be prepared to do some maintenance both at home and at the salon if you want to retain your color as long as possible.

A new hair color is fun and exciting, but make sure to do your research and prepare for your appointment if you want the best results. If you’d like a consultation, we’re happy to assist you! Call us at (678)816-1654 or message us on social media.
