Why Dye Your Hair at the Salon?
With many home dyes available in stores today, a lot of people choose to colour their own hair at home. The cost of hair colour at a salon puts many people off, but getting your hair dyed by a professional is more expensive for a reason. Here are some of the reasons you should get your hair dyed by a colour specialist.
- Home hair dyes offer little precision and shade variety, so it can be hard to get the colour you want
- A professional hairstylist will be able to assess your skin tone to make sure they choose a shade that compliments you
- They’ll also be able to determine whether your hair is healthy enough to be bleached or coloured, or whether that might cause more damage
- Dying your own hair is very difficult, because it’s hard to get even coverage on your own head and avoid missing spots, often resulting in a patchy and uneven hair colour
- Salon hair dyes are high-quality and use good ingredients to protect your hair from damage, while home dyes can have harmful ingredients and cause damage
- Home dyes can contain ingredients that make it difficult to remove the colour or put a new dye on top of it, which makes it hard for your stylist to help you if you want to change up your hair or feel unhappy with the results
- Dying your hair is a time-sensitive process that requires working quickly and keeping an eye on the clock, which is much more stressful than sitting down in the salon chair and relaxing
- Your professional hair colourist has the expertise and products to get good, even and flattering results when it comes to your hair colour

With this technique, soft, highlighted hair is intermingled with darker strands to create a dynamic look that’s full of movement and body. As a result, individuals with thin hair turn to this technique to increase the appearance of thickness in their hair. As your hair grows, the highlights stay atop the first layer, growing out evenly and softly without any hard colour separation.
Pros of Full Blonde Highlights York Mills:

Ombre is the gradual blending of one colour hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark. While the roots remain dark, the hair slowly lightens down the length of the strand until it hits the lightest, most highlighted points at the ends. When done correctly, Ombre mimics the natural colour change of your hair in the summer months. The new hair growth will stay your natural colour while the ends, which are exposed to more sun than the roots, turn a shade lighter.

Benefits of Ombre:
- Low maintenance
- Very trendy and versatile to your unique style
- Easily grow your roots and transition to a new style

MAINTENANCE FOR COLOUR-TREATED HAIR
You’ll want to keep your blonde highlights, ombre or balayage vibrant for as long as possible. Keeping your brand new colour treatment looking healthy requires proper maintenance and up-keep and appointments with lux hair. Bleaching hair is a chemical process that removes the natural pigments from your hair fibres. We have a collection of tips to combat damage to your follicles and strands of your hair and preserve the bright colours of your latest colour treatment.
Balayage and Ombre are much more low maintenance as the dyed hair quickly grows out and looks natural throughout your hair. Full highlights are more intense, they require retouching more frequently to maintain their appearance. However, if the colour wasn’t a huge departure from your natural shade, it may require less maintenance.
During this time, you’ll also need a trim to maintain the health of your hair. In-between colour touch-ups with lux hair You’ll also need to keep the vibrancy and moisture of your hair by using a colour-treated shampoo and conditioner. If you want the look to last, you’ll have to visit lux hair every four to six weeks, especially as your roots start to grow out.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Will I get Complete grey coverage?
A: Elumen offers grey blending which provides about 50% grey coverage, however this fall they are releasing an updated formula that will give more complete coverage for grey hair.
Q: How long will it last?
A: Elumen is a permanent non-oxidative colour, so as long as you are using the corresponding shampoo and conditioner and are ensuring proper home maintenance for coloured hair, it will stay in the hair until it is cut out.
Q: Is there any special at-home-maintenance for this colour?
A: There is a specially formulated shampoo and conditioner that works with the same magnetic-technology as the colour that we highly recommend to ensure your colour does not fade from regular washing.
Q: Can I use my regular styling products?
A: You absolutely can, however we recommend staying away from most oil-based products as these often penetrate past the hair cuticle and push out colour from the hair.
Q: How long does this service take?
A:We normally book 2 hours for a full elumen colour as we need to properly prep the hair before applying the colour, and then we need to allow adequate processing time so the colour can push itself into the hair shaft. Of course, if your hair needs to be lightened to achieve a specific level of vibrancy we will need to book additional time for that, and alternatively if you would just like to book for an elumen glaze we normally book for 30 minutes without a blowdry.
Q: Why is this colour system more expensive than a regular colour?
A: Given the additional time necessary to properly complete the service and the high quality of the product we have adjusted pricing accordingly. All of our services are charged a-la-carte, so if pre-lightening is necessary your stylist will discuss all additional charges.
Q: Can I get bright colours if I have dark hair?
A: Elumen has an incomparable vibrancy at all levels, however depending on how dark your hair is and how bright your goal is, we may need to pre-lighten the hair prior to applying the elumen.
