What is a color correction?

What is a color correction?  Many of our highlights and/or balayage colors are about changing what the client has had done before.  Most color services are a color correction! We need to adjust the colors!  Usually it’s a color or highlight that didn’t take well or has faded out to a drab, unhealthy looking color.  We need to lighten some pieces and darken other pieces.   Some clients just want a change! This is what we love to do!!!!

We get lots of questions about balayage and color costs. Most balayages are about correcting the previous color. Ever color is unique and requires different color processes.  The process can vary greatly in product amount and processing time.  The cost will vary accordingly.  A thorough consultation will explain what we need to do, how long it will take and what the costs will be.  We can only work within the limits of your hair and color chemistry!

Here are 2 of our recent clients getting color corrections.  I’ve added what the process time and cost was for each. Haircuts would be an additional price.

Shannon’s client came in to the salon with her hair previously colored and her hair had faded to a red brown. Lia wanted a deeper color with balayage caramel colored ends.  Shannon’s color correction plan was to give her a good base color first to tone down the red. (40 min. $50).  Shannon then did the balayage (1-hour application, $120) on the ends with lightener (45 min. processing).  Shannon then toned Lia’s hair (30 min, $45) so that the final caramel color was achieved.  This is so pretty and looks alot more natural! 4-hour process! $215

Red-brown before, balayage, toner and super pretty after pic!

Harbor’s client had brassy, one-dimensional color and her darker roots were starting to grow out.  She wanted a beige blonde that look more natural.  Harbor did low-lights and highlights at the same time. ($120, 1-hour application, 30 min process).  Tons of foils placed very close together. Hair is shampooed and a toner is then applied to blend everything together ($50, 20 min process).  After blow drying, the root color still needed some blending. Harbor did another row of foils along Nicole’s part with a darker natural color to soften the root line ($40, 30 min process).  In the next 4 to 6 weeks this client will continue to have highlights done to blend in her roots as they grow out. 3-hour process!  This is an amazing transformation done in one visit! Nicole loves her new beautiful color and so do we!  $210
