What to expect from a colour correction
The below is a guide in what you can expect when booking a colour correction appointment. If you do have any additional questions you are always welcome to email us anytime. We are here to help!
What is a colour correction?
A colour correction refers to correcting unwanted colour(s) in your hair as a result of miscolouring, lightening or using any product that would have altered your hair colour. This can also refer to any colour services that takes 4 hours or more to process such as going from dark to light, first time balayage or any service(s) that require multiple steps to create your desired result.
In order to book your colour correction appointment you must first fill out the Pre-Colour Correction Form via Vagaro including signing our Colour Correction Policies. Once your form has been reviewed, you will be asked to book your in-person consultation.
In-person consultations are $30 for a 30-minute in-depth consultation including mapping out the process, creating a maintenance schedule and after care regime as well as price and time quotation. If you complete your service within 2 months of the consultation date, the consultation fee is deducted from your service cost.
You may be asked to follow a dish soap routine at home to help the process. Full instructions will be given and not every client is asked to do this.
Colour correction is $100 per hour + tax. This service will be booked for the allotted hours the stylist feels necessary for that session and may be as long as 8 hours. Correction appointments may not be booked on a Saturday.
A $200 deposit will be required to book your colour correction appointment and becomes non refundable within the late cancelation threshold.
Colour correction appointments require at least 72-hour notice prior to cancelling or rescheduling. Late cancellation will result in your deposit being kept and a new deposit will be required to book a new colour correction appointment.
