Color correction journeys can include several steps and multiple appointments until hair goals are achieved. Stylist Amy Baugh says making sure hair is healthy enough for whatever you’re wanting to do is a must for any color correction.
“My new client came to me with more bands than you’ll ever see," Carly Brown says. "I knew this was going to be a HUGE challenge! Thankfully her hair surprised me and it did exactly what I wanted it to first time... YAY!”
Denise Mahoney (@colourauthority) of Colour Authority Salon and Spa, Portland, Oregon, says first time client Samantha came in with very warm ends and about 6 months of regrowth looking for a color upgrade. Details here.
Marie Negrón says “My beautiful client here is a busy mom of two baby girls and sometimes it is hard for her to keep up with her blonde. She decided to color her hair at home and unfortunately it didn’t come out as she expected. I was able to correct her color in five hours.”
Montana Schmidt (@paintslikeschmidt) of Kevin and Co, Danville, IL. says "I’ve been best friends with this girl for about 8 years now and she has the thickest most gorgeous hair. I hadn’t done her hair in almost a whole year, so of course she was ready to go brighter."
The foundation upon which all corrective color rests is understanding oxidation. According to Missy Peterson, global education and artistic director for Malibu C it's the key to mastering the ins and outs of corrective hair color.
