Oooooh, pretty!

Oooooh, pretty!

Pastel hair color (pale pink, lavender, blues, greens, grey, steel, graphite etc.) is still a big hit this spring! Though it’s a fabulous look, it’s not easy to achieve at home. So please, leave it to your trusty Root Salon professional team.

That said, with professional hair color comes a price tag. It can be costly but that’s because pastel colors are extremely tricky and labor intensive (and, therefore, have the potential to be disastrous in the wrong hands). This is not a process to be rushed. Also, unfortunately, these delicate colors tend to fade out quickly so they require a lot of maintenance.

Blondes or people that are already colored blonde are typically easiest to achieve pastel color. People who have darker hair to start, whether natural or cosmetically colored, take longer.

Technically speaking, we would call this “corrective” color. Scary, right? Let’s take a quick detour and discuss this term. Corrective color might sound scary but it doesn’t have to be. Sure, sometimes it means we are correcting bad work (like, say, someone trying for a pastel color at home). But more often than not, “corrective” color in our world means we’re making a massive color change. And we LOVE change! Change is great!!!!

But I don’t have a presto-change-o magic wand so with an open schedule and some patience from both stylist and client, corrective color usually happens over one or two rather lengthy appointments.

So now that you know the general idea, come in and chat for 15-20 minutes about all the details with a complimentary consultation. This is a great opportunity to get on the same page with your stylist! We offer real, honest answers about what we can and cannot do. I can talk about this all day online or over the phone, but I need to see and feel your hair give specific advice.
