Stepping into a hair salon means that you can create almost any look that you desire. Your hairstyle is a form of self-expression… a way to show your personality and style. Whether you want to add a little color to your hair or you are ready to shorten your locks, an experienced hair stylist can make your style ideas become a reality.

If you want to change the color of your hair, it is essential to know the safest way to do it without damaging your hair follicles. Here are a few things to consider:

DIY or Professional Salon?

Take a walk down the hair aisle at the local grocery or superstore, and you will find many boxes of hair dye. It seems like it should be a simple solution to pick a color and follow the directions on the box. But, unfortunately these products are often made with ingredients that can damage your hair. Plus, many people find that the color doesn’t quite turn out as they hoped.

Instead of ruining your hair with cheap dye products, it is better to schedule an appointment with an experienced hair professional. Not only will you have access to products that aren’t sold directly to the public, but you will also be able to tap into their experience and education.

The greatest advantage of a salon color is that a professional colorist will be able to mix the desired color shades to give proper depth to your hair. A store-bought product will create a flat color all over, but a pro will be able to give you the highlights that will brighten your face and add a beautiful complementary texture and tone.

Taking it Slow

Keep in mind the natural attributes and limitations of your hair to avoid damage. For example, if you have dark hair and you want to change to a lighter color, you won’t be able to make that color change overnight. The safest solution is to schedule a series of appointments so that you can gradually lighten the shade until you achieve the color that you desire.
