The pictures we see in the media make it look so easy to achieve a fun hair color, but that can be far from the truth. It takes a lot of time, effort, and can be very expensive. Hello photoshop and filters!
That is what you are looking at most of the time when you see a beautiful perfect lavender hair or that trendy silver. The process of creating a fashion color is tedious. All color pigment has to be removed from the hair by lightening it (yes, that means bleaching the s*#@% out of it). Depending on the hair color and texture, it could take 1-3 times per session to get the hair to the right level. Most of the time, this does not happen in one day.
The integrity of the hair always comes first and is more important to us as stylists than the end result. That being said, the majority of people who do this don’t keep it forever, so now to go back to a natural color, you have to go to the salon for a color correction, which is whole other process. I’m not saying don't do it, by any means. I did mine pink for literally a week! Just know what you are getting yourself into before making the decision to play with your hair color.
