After asking yourself all those questions, do you think you are a candidate for hair color? Of course every lady that gets bored with her look thinks in that moment that she is the perfect candidate. I know that for a fact!!!! I recently did a post on Facebook looking to give someone a hair make over and they had the option of color, cut, or both. Don’t you know almost everyone wanted color. Which is what I expected but what got me was the explanation that came with why they wanted it. Some wanted it because it was free, some wanted because they follow my work on social media and loved it, some were moms that just wanted a pick me up, and some just wanted it because of the seasons changing. So the researcher that I am went through some of their Facebook pictures to see if I could get a since of lifestyle, and any recent of their current hairstyles and I noticed that most of the ladies didn’t have regular salon visits. Life takes turns along with ups and downs that keep some women from visiting the salon often BUT color is a no no for someone that sits in my chair that doesn’t have the time for maintenance. I require at least 6 appointments before I even consider color for new clients. Color is a big money maker in the beauty industry but my name and brand is just as important as my tax bracket.

Fall is here today is day one! You will be tempted but be real with your self and do a honest self evaluation about your commitment to healthy hair and then consider color and beware of stylist that will color your hair on the first appointment it rarely goes right for the client or stylist.
