Depending on your current hair colour and your end goal hair colour, you may require Colour Correction. We've created this page to help you determine whether or not your hair requires Colour Correction.
GOING FROM DARK OR RED HAIR TO BLONDE, PLATINUM, SILVER OR PASTEL TONES
Achieving blonde on dark or red hair requires patience and skill. We recommend lightening your hair slowly, over multiple appointments, to preserve the strength and integrity of your hair. Even with products like Olaplex added, this is a process that should not be rushed. Lightening your hair too quickly and aggressively can cause it to break off in chunks and this is definitely something we want to avoid.
CORRECTING PREVIOUS COLOUR
This could include stripe-y highlights, colour banding (these look like horizontal stripes or blocks of mismatched colour in your hair), blotchy patches, overlapped colour, etc.
BOX DYED HAIR (drug store or grocery store hair colour)
Box dyes and professional hair colour are not the same. While professional hair colour stops processing once it's reached a certain point, box colours continue to develop the longer they are left on the hair. Compared to professional hair colour, box dyes can also be extremely stubborn to lift out of the hair. Correcting box-dyed hair requires skill and patience to ensure the best results.
We do not work with hair that has been coloured with henna and advise waiting for it to grow out. Henna is permanent and penetrates and seals the hair shaft; this makes it very difficult if not impossible to lift out of the hair.
IT'S BEEN MONTHS SINCE YOU'VE HAD YOUR DARK REGROWTH LIGHTENED
If you have blonde hair and more than a 1/2 inch of dark natural regrowth, you're going to need a Colour Correction to ensure the best results possible. If your hair has grown longer than 1/2 an inch of re-growth, it is much more difficult to ensure a clean even lift when lightening. Your stylist will need to take extra steps to balance out the different tones in your hair and this requires more time and effort.
