Do I need to wash my hair before a chemical service?
You can wash it but it's not necessary. The reason we don't encourage it is the natural oils on your scalp help protect your skin from the chemicals.
What do I need to do for a Formal style service?
Come with hair washed the day before and dried with no product. I like a fresh clean slate to work with. Bring in a photo of the style and any accessories you'd like incorporated into it. Based on your hair length, texture and condition I will get you as close to the desired style as possible.
What over the counter hair products do you recommend?
I do not recommend any OTC products. The reason why is they are equivalently strength wise, like washing your hair with battery acid. These products can ruin a new color very quickly. I will not guarantee my color if you are not using professional products, (yes I can tell)
Please be reasonable in your expectations:
If you come in with natural black or dark brown box dyed hair, you will not be able to go silver or blonde in 1 sitting, it will take several 2-3 hour appointments to achieve this look and keep your hair in good shape. I will do as much as your hair allows.
