We all know someone who has had a “hair color oops” at some point in their life. Hair color mistakes happen. However, hair color is always adjustable to a certain extent. When fixing hair color, you have to work smart in order to get the best results with the least amount of damage. It’s so important to see a professional hair stylist so that you can get as close to your original end result as possible.
Fixing Hair Color – Going Darker
If you have ever looked in the mirror and thought, “Wow I am way too light” you know the feeling of needing some depth in your life. Being “too light” can mean a multitude of things. If you want to be all over darker, your stylist may have to “fill” your hair because it has become too porous to hold on to color. Sometimes, some foils with a lowlight formula may do the trick as well.
Fixing Hair Color – Going Lighter
Sometimes hair color can take too dark. If this is the case, sometimes you just need some highlights to break it up and make you feel over all lighter. Other times, you may need to completely lighten your hair. Unfortunately, color DOES NOT lighten previously colored hair. Because of this, stylists need to use a lightening product. At Ashka Salon Spa, we use Aveda’s Enlightener. With the help of Olaplex, we are able to help protect your hair better during the lightening process.
Now, it’s important to remember that every Color Correction is completely dependent on the situation. Sometimes it is a lot of time and steps, other times the problem could be easily fixed quickly. Another big thing to remember when fixing hair color is that you may not get the end result you are looking for right away in one session. At Ashka Salon Spa, we are committed to keeping your hair in good condition above all else. You can always add on an olaplex treatment while fixing your hair color. Your stylist will be able to give you a good timeline for how long it may take to achieve your #HairGoals.
Until Next Time,
