Tracey Cunningham and Kari Hill are featured in an awesome article on Cosmopolitan.com! This article gives you 15 handy (some being crucial) points to follow before getting your hair colored!
My personal favorite commandments:
1) PHOTOS! Bring in photos of what you want and some of what you DON’T want!
2) Using Instagram to research colorists and stylists. I love this because it is, hands down, the best platform to see the most current work by professionals. Follow us: @MecheSalonLA
3) DO NOT USE BOX COLOR. The article says “if it’s your first time coloring,” but just never touch it. It’s never good for your hair and it is always the worst to try to correct, lift, or change.
4) Price. “It’s tough to estimate how much a coloring appointment will cost.” We get calls for price estimations and we try to give a good ballpark figure of what you should expect to pay, but there are many factors that cause pricing to vary greatly. The best bet is to set up an quick, complimentary 15-minute consultation with your colorist or stylist to discuss what you want to accomplish and they can give you an exact price of what you will be charged.
