Having a chat with some of the team at Hair by Phd and discussing how many colour corrections (fix ups) we have been doing in the salon lately. The amount of people that continue to do DIY hairdressing is nuts. Yes it’s cheap, that’s about the only real advantage. Some of you who whack a colour on at home might disagree with me, that’s ok. What I’m really talking about are the people who try to do more technically advanced colouring like bleaching hair and more complicated highlighting (DIY Balayage), is where the trouble starts.
Is it worth the saving you would make when you could potentially do some real damage not only to your hair but your skin as well? Some of the chemicals used to colour hair, if not used properly can lead damage to your hair and to serious injury to your skin. Sadly there are hairdressers out there that are not properly trained who do damage to their clients hair and skin.
At Hair by Phd we are constantly looking at all the best techniques and options to offer to our clients. We work with some of Australia’s best colourists; use the best products to offer our clients the best colour experience possible.
He is an example of a colour correction we did recently. Candice was recommended to our salon to help solve her blues. Please do not try this sort of colouring at home, this was done by trained professionals and took approximately 6 hours to complete. The result speaks for itself.
Candice had blonde hair prior to going blue. After putting blue in her hair, she decided blue wasn’t her thing. Using an Olaplex treatment before and after the colour service we where able to strip the blue and achieve a gorgeous blonde while actually improving the condition of her hair.
If you have any colour requests or colour corrections you would like to have a chat about, pop in and see one of our stylists. We would love to look after you.
