Color Correction? Not So Fast!

You went from blonde to brown to red to black, and now you want to go back to blonde again? Can't you just put on a blonde color and waalaa...beautiful bombshell blonde?

Not so fast! Sadly, color doesn't work that way.

If you are that dark of a color and you want to still have hair when you're done, going back to blonde will be a lengthy process.

We recommend (and so do all of the top celebrity colorists in the world) that you do so very gradually. That means that you should be a dark brown with some medium to light brown highlights for a few months. Then, maybe a few more highlights put in for more of a medium brown. Wear that for a few months. Then, a few more to become dark blonde, etc, etc. When we do it in stages, you can have a beautiful, natural-looking color at every stage of reversal.

The reason it needs to be gradual is because everything you did on your hair has to be undone. If you try to do it all in one appointment, 1.) you wouldn't have hair. Your hair is not strong enough to withstand all of those processes. It will break off. If you do it gradually, you will give the hair time to rest and recover in between each process. 2.) We have no idea what has been put on your hair. This means it is a guessing game for how your hair will react until we dig in. 3.) Red is the hardest color to get out of the hair, especially an unnatural red color. 4.) Refer to number 1.

We care about your hair. We want you to be happy with the results, but we also want you to have healthy shiny hair. I guess what I'm saying is be patient, it can be done, but not as fast as you were hoping. Good hair is a choice. Make the right one!
