So you are browsing the hair care aisle at the grocery store. Your boyfriend has told you how much he would love to see you as a blonde. All of a sudden your eyes meet with Gwen Setfani’s on the hair color box. “I’m going to look just like Gwen Stefani!” and off you go to the check out lane.
Fast forward 2-3 hours and in between the tears, you curse your boyfriend AND Gwen. What was supposed to be a perfect platinum blonde has turned out to be a mess of rings that would rival Saturn’s. Bright tangerine at the root, incandescent copper after that and then a crazy mix of you don’t know what the heck just happened.
As professional colorists, we take into account a long list of factors when consulting with a hair color client: what is your natural color (even if we can’t see it!), do you have any grey, how often do you color your hair, what colors have you been, have you had any other chemical service done on your hair, what type of maintenance are you comfortable with, and so and so on. We take the time to consult so the client understands what can and cannot be achieved the day of their appointment.
So next time your boyfriend thinks you should go blonde, tell him you want a Gift Certificate at Luster Salon!
