5 Important Questions to Ask Before Your First Hair Color Service

1. Do you have a portfolio of previous hair color pictures done at your salon?

                Pictures speak a thousand words. A salon or stylists’ portfolio should be your first impression before you even step foot in the salon. Save that photo! It is also helpful to your stylist to provide a variety of pictures of celebrities or photos from Pinterest/online so they know what your expectations are. Keep in mind, most images online are Photoshopped or the model could be wearing extensions or a wig, but don’t fret! Your stylists will point that out at the time of your consultation and guide you towards your dream hair!


2. How much experience does my hairstylist have with hair color?

                 It’s always important to schedule your appointment with a stylist who has extended knowledge in hair color. Here at Salon Divine, all our stylists take extensive color classes to ensure the quality of our work. We make sure you walk out loving your hair!


3. Is there going to be a consultation before the service?

            Make sure you book your initial appointment as a consultation. That way, you get to know your stylist and to make sure you both are on the same page when it comes to your hair goals. Typically, during your consultation your stylist will go into depth about questions or concerns that you may have. It will also allow the stylist to break down the service and price point for you. Here are a few important points that should be covered during your consultation:

  • Whether your hair color style is achievable. If not, what are the proper steps to achieve your hair goal
  • The length of time required to perform the color service
  • The total cost of the color service
  • How to maintain and upkeep your hair color


4. Is it possible to achieve the look I want?

            Although this question will be answered during your consultation, your stylist will work with you and properly educate you throughout your service. Everyone's hair has a different story. Some people have thick/coarse hair, some have thin/fine hair. Some have pre-existing hair color, and some have virgin hair that has never had a color service. Just remember, these things will affect the outcome of your color service. It is in the stylists best interest to achieve your hair goals while keeping the integrity of your hair in mind. Multiple sessions may be required, which may include in-salon treatments and take-home hair care.


5. What does my service include & how much will it cost?

            Nobody likes to be surprised at the checkout counter, which is why your stylist will provide you with a breakdown of the total services towards the end of your consultation.
