Expert Hair Coloring Services
Studio 39 is known for color services. From covering gray to specialized color work, we can help choose the right hair color to match your skin tone and style. Certain color techniques are performed by certain stylists so, like hair cutting, prices vary.
Italian and French Hair Coloring
At Studio 39, we use the color lines we love to work with. We prefer European color companies like Alpha Parf Milano and Artego. These color lines have a deeper and cleaner dye content than many American color lines. They are able to penetrate the hair better without having to use fillers and harsh chemicals because of the botanical based, micro-milled color pigment. This means the color attaches well with less ammonia which gives the colorist a better ability to deliver beautiful results. Hair health is always our priority.
Our go to for blonde work or gray coverage is Parisian hair color L’Oreal Professional. L’Oreal Professional is the world’s oldest professional hair color line and adheres to France’s quality control. We use ammonia free Dia-Light and olive oil based INOA hair color specifically for damage free hair coloring. INOA hair color by L’oreal Professional is our choice for salon guests seeking a healthier alternative to color services. If a client has gluten allergies or severe skin sensitivities we often use INOA for gentle, yet beautiful results.
Highlights Versus Color
Whether your desired look is funky or natural, we take the time to evaluate your hair to determine what technique and application is best. Slicing, stitching, and painting are examples of highlighting methods using foil. Contrast work is adding brightness, this is color placement achieved with highlighting. All-over color can be used to cover gray, deepen and enhance natural hair color at the root, or to freshen ends or make blonde pastel. Every color service is formulated and tailored to each client’s specific style and hair type. For specialty color work, prices will be quoted at the time of consultation.
For New Color Guests
We want to provide any new guest with the best experience. For best results, we start with a required color consultation. We take color work serious, so we do a 30 minute consultation that costs $25. This amount is applied towards your first color appointment. With exception to gray or base refreshing, generally first-time color appointments for dimensional work are booked for 2 to 4-hours, depending on hair. Beautiful hair color takes time, especially if your hair is naturally dark, long and/or thick. If you would like to book additional services for the same time, like a haircut or blow dry style, allow extra time. Be sure to factor these time estimates into your schedule. Once a color regimen has been created, and a clear color plan has been determined by your stylist, we may then book later hair coloring appointments after your initial visit. Please arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment to fill out a color questionnaire. Unless other arrangements have been made, we do not book major color projects after 5:00 pm.
- Blow dry and style are usually included for normal hair length.
- If you have had previous color, hair is lighter than your natural color, have very long hair with highlights and color, or have growth beyond a half inch (4-6 weeks), you may need a corrective hair color service. Please see that page and the blonde page.
- Maintaining a lighter hair color shade requires a regular schedule. If the schedule is not kept, the color may need to be redone. In that case, a “new color client” appointment, as described above, will be required. Blonde is high maintenance! Knowing you will need to come every 4-6 weeks for root touch ups for all over blondes (global blonde), especially when color is lighter than your natural is important.
- If we believe the service requires more time than scheduled or if you arrive more than 15 minutes late, we may ask you to return another day. We want to serve you, but we want to give the best service. If we’re pressed for time orif we feel perhaps the time booked was not correct, please understand. We strive for good communication but sometimes the wrong appointment is booked, so always ask your stylist when pre-booking what appointment you should book next!
