They will also last longer than other methods such as adhesive tape, keratin and hot head strips. This of course depends on how frequently they are used.

As for types of clip-in hair extensions, there are many brands that come in all shapes and colors, high quality to cheap looking.Overall though, there are 2 general types and those are synthetic and real natural human hair. Synthetic hair is usually chosen thanks to it being price friendly. It is also a great way to try it on before investing in high quality natural human hair. Real human hair clip-in extensions looks real (because it is!) and also gives plenty of styling options. If you are serious about hair extensions, real natural hair is the way to go.

All our hair extensions are made with natural hair from India. We assure you your new look will be completely natural and no one will notice you are wearing them!

Hair Color Correction in Coral Gables

They try to conserve money.

  1. They don’t have time to get to the salon.
  2. They have a friend who can ‘do it’ for them.
  3. They did their own color at home
  4. They went to another salon where the didn`t have stylist color experience

Coloring hair is a complicated process since a stylist needs to know the chemical and color charts and be familiar with the different level of peroxides needed for different hair types. Processing time is also something that has to be monitored closely.

Here’s the good news…bad hair color can be fixed; however, there are some things you’d need to know and prepare for:

  1. You’ll need to find an experienced stylist that specializes in color correction. Why? Because not every stylist or colorist can repair a bad color job. A stylist must prepare for this process and they really do need to know their color and chemical charts.
  2. Fixing color is not a one-time process. Therefore, as a client, you should be prepared for a few visits to correct your hair color and keep your hair looking healthy. This also means that you need to be prepared to make a financial commitment to repair your appearance as you’ll be paying for the colorist’s knowledge and expertise.
  3. Get over the embarrassment of coming in and asking someone to fix your hair. We’ve come across lots of customers who said they were too embarrassed to come to a salon to fix their color so they thought they would keep trying on their own. Once they took the initiative to get their color fixed, they were thrilled at how they looked when the process was done and vowed to never let an inexperienced colorist touch their hair again.
  4. You need to be comfortable and willing to try different suggestions because your hair will react differently through the color correction process. Your color might not be able to be corrected during your first visit, so you’ll need to be patient during the process. Often times there has been such a bad build-up of color and the hair is fried or damaged as a result of poor color processing so deep –conditioning treatments might be necessary as well.

Because hair color is often considered and art, you’ll need to find a good salon and stylist and stick with that person through the color correction process.

Why? Because you need someone who will be honest with you and experienced enough to take you through the color correction process. For example, there are different levels of peroxide used in color correction and your stylist needs to know what to do to keep your hair from getting any further damaged during the correction process and how to remove all the different tones that might be in your hair. You’ll need to find a salon that carries a quality hair color – this author uses and recommends Goldwell for hair color in general – especially when fixing someone’s hair color.

As a colorist and stylist for several local television personalities and with lots of experience correcting hair color, I find it very satisfying and rewarding to correct someone’s hair color. Transforming someone’s appearance and giving them that feeling of confidence is extremely rewarding for me.

If you aren’t completely satisfied with your hair color and are looking for a knowledgeable stylist or colorist, I encourage you to give me a call and schedule a consultation where I can look at your hair and determine the best way to start the color correction process. If you’re willing to put your hair in my hands, I can assure you we’ll fix your color and we’ll get you that look you were trying to achieve. It might take a little time and a few visits, but the final result will be worth it.

Remember, coloring your own hair might be inexpensive but when you need to fix it, it can get pretty costly as you’ll need to invest additional time and money. So, we recommend that if you’ve never colored your hair, that you start out properly and start with a professional who has lots of experience with hair color and chemicals.
