Corrective Hair Color

Corrective Color Service

Hair color correction is one of our most common services. If you are unhappy with an at home box color or another salon’s work, you may need corrective hair color. Many of our corrective color customers are new clients who have come to Studio 39 from another salon. Correcting existing color is difficult and takes advanced formulation and experienced application. Nothing about fixing botched color is easy. What sets our hair color correction stylists apart from others is the training and experience they have for this salon specialty service.

Make the investment in an experienced color salon to have your color done well the first time so you do not pay more money later to have it corrected.

How Long Does a Corrective Color Service Take?

The corrective color process varies due to the specific nature, as well as the current condition of each hair type. For most situations, additional visits are required depending on how much you want to tone or color-correct the hair. All hair color is about options but hair color corrections and blonde work use a lot of salon resources in product and labor. Going light blonde on dark hair is a process and usually requires more than one visit to the salon, especially if there is previous artificial color on the hair. Going darker on blonde requires the same attention and may also require multiple visits. A consultation with one of our experienced stylists is very important to determine if the results you are looking to achieve are attainable. Typically we can do as much work as possible if we have the time. 

All new color requires a consultation. Color Correction starts at $100 an hour. Gemy and the salon master stylists charge $120 an hour.

Hair Color Correction Chemistry

Corrective hair coloring requires knowing what will happen. Exact mixing, texture and placement are all key factors in hair color. An experienced colorist knows special lighteners are necessary for different techniques like balayage or platinum looks. Balayage is a method of highlighting where lightener tapers away from the root in natural-looking highlights. This technique is also commonly used to achieve variations of the well-known ombre or “natural’ blonde look. You can learn more by reading about our balayage services.

Balayage Services

“Baly” is what we call balayge and it’s a hand painted technique using a clay lightener that is thicker than the formula we use for regular color services. This provides creative flexibility to give a color guest a one-of-a-kind look. Balayage has always been part of our color tool box and it is a techniq that has evolved to include color melting, shadow roots, dimensional blonde, and more. If you are looking for the best color correction Kansas City has to offer, book a consultation with one of our trained and experienced hair stylist to learn how we can improve your existing hair color. In certain cases of real color emergencies, we can prioritize your appointment.
