What is the difference between a Full Service Haircut and Transformation haircut?A Full Service haircut is suited for clients that want to clean up the length and update the current shape to compliment their natural texture and styling preferences. Timing includes a consultation, hair wash, scalp massage, and blow dry + style. A Transformation haircut is suited for clients that want a major change. Whether you're adding layers for the first time, removing a lot of length, need a significant amount of weight removal, or you're unsure of what style will work and you'd like a more in-depth consultation. The timing includes a consultation, hair wash, scalp massage, and blow dry + style.
What are the differences between Half Head, Full Head, and Heavy Highlights?To put it simply, the more lightness you're looking to achieve in one sitting then the more coverage you will need. For a lighter look that leaves a lot of your natural color for depth and dimension, choose Half Head highlights. This includes balayage or foils depending on what suits your end goal the best. For a lighter look that leaves a little natural color for minimal depth and dimension, choose Full Head highlights. This includes balayage or foils depending on what suits your end goal the best. For the maximum amount of lightness with little to no natural color left behind, choose Heavy highlights. This is the most amount of lightness that can be achieved in one session. This includes balayage or foils depending on what suits your end goal the best.
What is the recommended maintenance for Hair Color?To preserve the health of your hair and tone of your color I recommend a gentle shampoo from Innersense. Hydrating Cream Hairbath and Conditioner is my best recommendation to keep your hair silky and shiny. The most color safe option is New Wash, a one step cream based cleanser that replaces your shampoo and conditioner. Since there is no lather to it you can cleanse your hair without worry of your color fading. As far as timing between appointments, here is my recommendation: Base Color: 4-6 weeks Bright Blondes: 6-8 weeks Dimensional Blondes: 3-4 months Dimensional Brunettes: 4-6 months Toning Gloss: As needed between highlight appointments
What is the recommended maintenance for Hair Cuts?With proper at home care the length doesn't need to be trimmed as often as you'd think. At home maintenance will vary from person to person but the main thing to prevent dry and split ends is proper hydration. My recommended hair cut schedule for most clients: Initial service: Transformation/Full Service Haircut 3-4 Months later: Bang Trim/Full Service Haircut 3-4 Months later: Bang Trim/Full Serve Haircut 3-4 Months later: Transformation/Full Service Haircut
