About Our Hair Color Services

Day of Hair Color Appointment - What to Expect

 

What to Wear

Hair color, whether natural hues or fantasy colors, is a messy and often long process! Come to the salon ready to relax, wearing comfortable clothes. We have all clients receiving a hair service to wear our professional-quality capes and robes, which repel water, hair color, and other products used at the salon.While we do everything we can to prevent excess color from getting on clothing or skin and can help remove rogue color, avoid wearing cherished clothing that can be easily stained.

Re-Dyeing Your Hair

Any existing hair color, especially at home hair color, will affect how your hair lightens and how light the stylist can get your hair. When you are looking to go from one dyed hair color to another, we strongly encourage booking a consultation prior to coloring your hair at the salon. These consultations allow your stylist to understand your current hair, and your hair goals, and to book a custom-timed appointment suited for your needs. Call the salon, or book a consultation online!

Lengthy Color Appointment

We understand that during long hair appointments, you may get hungry, thirsty, or need to stretch your legs. Do not hesitate to tell your stylist! There are many times during your appointment that you can grab a snack, a drink, or walk around to stretch your legs. They will be able to give you some times during the day of your appointment if you need to order food for delivery.

About Hair Removal Services

ALL intimate hair removal services are reserved for adults 18 years and older. You may be asked to show your ID at the front desk prior to your appointment. These services include nipples, bikini, Brazilian, and buttocks.

How to Prepare for a Wax to Avoid Pain and Irritation

  • Before your first waxing, come in with about 1/4inch of hair growth. This takes an average of 2-3weeks to grow

  • Within 24 hours prior to your appointment, gently exfoliate the area you will be waxing

  • Come into the salon with extra clean skin, avoiding the use of lotion, deodorant, body oils, and tight clothing

  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol right before your appointment

  • Come in hydrated and well rested

  • Take painkillers like Tylenol or Advil 30-45 minutes before your appointment

  • Avoid getting a bikini or Brazilian wax 2 days or less before your period and 5-14 days after your period, as your skin is more sensitive and prone to irritation and hyperpigmentation during menstruation

  • If getting a Brazilian wax while on your period, you may be more sensitive to the service and experience more pain than usual during or after the waxing. 

 

After-Appointment Care

  • Avoid direct sunlight, tanning, exercising, excessive sweating, and swimming for at least 72hours following your wax appointment.

  • As previously stated, avoid getting a bikini or Brazilian wax 2 days or less before your period and 5-14 days after your period, as your skin is more sensitive and prone to irritation during menstruation

  • If getting a Brazilian wax while on your period, you may be more sensitive to the service and experience more pain than usual during or after the waxing. 

  • We strongly encourage using Finipil antiseptic lotion everyday after bathing, and after exercising. This helps soothe open and exposed pores, kills bacteria, and reduces irritation and swelling.
