Overhauling your hair can be scary, especially if you’re planning to take a trip to the other side. You could be going from brunette to blonde, or blonde to brunette, or anything in between. What do you need to know before you take the big leap?

Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 12.51.40 AMCrown Hair have seen a number of transformations in our time. It brings our colourists no greater joy than to be able to realise the dream of a client who has longed for change, and emerged from the salon feeling brand new. We chatted to Crown Hair’s Senior Colourist Dominik Rafa about what to keep in mind if you’ve got a big transformation in the pipeline.

The first steps, explains Dominik, are to come and have a consultation with a colourist.

“The best thing to do is come and  have a consultation so we can discuss your hair history, see the condition of your hair and what can be done. Seeing your skin tone is also important for us, so we can advise based on this,” explains Dominik.

Hair ChangePatience is a virtue for a reason, even more so when it comes to transforming your hair. Dominik says to keep in mind that your transformation will take time and not be fooled by miraculous celebrity hair transformations.  “You have to reasonable about what you can achieve. Celebrities have days and days to spend in the salon before their big change is revealed,” says Dominik.

When it comes to colour, it’s about being realistic with your time and budget for upkeep and maintenance.

Olaplex has made it possible for colourists to push the boundaries of lightening hair,”  “Obviously if you go with fashionable colours like ashy tones, you will need to make sure you keep up with regular appointments to tone the colour,” says Dominik.

As the saying goes – it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen! If you have a big transformation in mind, contact us at the salon to book your consultation.
