Corrective Hair Color

Corrective Hair Color

Studio 39 is an expert corrective color salon with expert hair stylists. If you are unhappy with an at home box color or you’re unhappy with 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 who’s hair stylists may have not received proper training in advanced hair coloring services. An initial consultation with one of our hair stylists can help ensure you get the results you want.

Some inexperienced stylists, or salon clients, may not be familiar with expert hair coloring and perhaps do not know the proper techniques or the science behind the coloring process. The formulation and application to getting the right color are far from easy. What sets our hair stylists apart from others is the training and experience they have in advanced hair coloring and corrective coloring.

Corrective hair color guests sometimes need more than one visit to achieve certain color looks. 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. This involved color process requires focus and close attention with high product volume use, which is why pricing is different than regular color services as explained on our hair color page.

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

Trust the Experts

Corrective hair coloring requires knowing how color will take to certain hair colors and textures prior to the service. This requires education in biology and chemistry, but the most important factor in corrective color work is experience. Exact mixing, texture and placement are all key factors in hair color. An experienced hair 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.

We also use this method to achieve “balacolor,” a unique method in which your hair stylist combines lowlights with a special color 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.

Studio 39 is the only salon in Kansas City to perform a wide array of BALA color services. These types of advanced services include color melting, creating shadow roots and dimensional blonde… just to name a few.
