WHAT IS BALAYAGE?
Balayage (balāˈyäZH) is a french word meaning "to sweep" or "to paint" the hair to create a more natural, gradual effect.
DO YOU USE BRAZILIAN BOND BUILDER (B3)?
Yes! Keeping the integrity of your hair in tact is very important to me. Find out more about Brazilian Bond Builder HERE!
IS IT HELPFUL TO BRING IN PICTURES?
YES! I love pictures! Inspiration photos are extremely helpful when deciding on the color & cut you want! It's important to remember these are inspiration photos. I will do my best to discuss the steps to get the best possible outcome while adjusting what is needed to fit your lifestyle & hair texture.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY APPOINTMENT?
I always recommend my clients prebook their next appointment in advance! I'm usually booked up about 6 weeks out, so prebooking guarantees you'll get in at a time that is most convenient for you!
SHOULD I WASH MY HAIR BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
Not necessarily! If you have sensitive skin/scalp and are getting a on scalp color service, having your natural oils present can help protect your scalp & prevent irritation. On the other hand, if your hair is too dirty & has a lot of product build up, it can create a barrier making it more difficult for the color to penetrate. I recommend washing 1-2 days prior to your color service, and always washing day of for an extension service to ensure a clean surface for the extensions application.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE MY HAIR FOR MY BRIDAL TRIAL/DAY OF?
The bride & any bridal party members should arrive day of with clean, dry hair (washed the night prior or day of & blow dried). Do not use any hot tools on your hair prior as it can prevent a curl from holding! Be sure to bring any hair accessories needed, and wear a zip-up or button up to keep your hair on point while undressing!
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
As a courtesy please allow at least 24-48 hours notice before canceling/rescheduling your appointment. I know that sometimes life happens, but when you forget to call to cancel/no show I miss that opportunity to fit in other clients. See my Cancellation Policy for more information.
Please also note, being more than 15 minutes late may result in rescheduling your date & time. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me here!
