Whether you want to cover up some gray or get a whole new look going, dying your hair is the way to do it. The perfect color can change everything. Of course, one of the first questions someone asks when they are considering some color changes is “how much does it cost to dye your hair at a salon?”.
The answer is not quite that cut and dry (no pun intended). There are quite a few variables you are dealing with when you are considering professional hair coloring. Understanding the variables will help you to understand what you are paying for and how much it should cost.
What Exactly Are You Paying For?
Boxed hair dye that you buy over the counter is cheap, and the results typically look cheap. The cheapest of the cheap OTC dyes will run you about $10 bucks, the next level OTC dye kits can ring up the register at about $30. Of course if your hair is longer, resilient or your going from dark to light, you are talking product cost of anywhere from $40-$60. Doll, you can get, beautiful healthy color processing at Bombshell starting at about $100 bucks for an all over color. Let’s be honest that equates to a meal out at a nice place and maybe a few hours at the club.
Your hair is one of the first things that people notice about you. Over the counter hair dye solutions are not a solution when you want to make that, best first impression. OTC coloring can really do some damage and leave your hair looking and feeling a mess! Not to mention the time investment on your part to do it yourself. All of this over the counter and DIY talk is a recipe for disaster for your hair and is not as “cheap” as you think it will be.
The adage “you pay for what you get” holds very true when it comes to how much does it cost to dye your hair. The number one thing you are paying for is expertise. Shortchanging yourself by hunting for bargain basement prices on coloring will not give you the results that you hope for.
Hair dyeing is an art. This art is not something that is easy to perfect. Hair coloring and dyeing requires both formal training and years of experience to truly be able to deliver results that exceed expectations. A professional colorist is a visionary. They know what it takes to deliver unmatched results that complement your overall look. The right colorist will:
Understand your type of hair and how it will absorb color
Use high-quality products and hair dyes that not only color the hair but protect it from damage
Offer a range of coloring options that are on trend
Take the time to understand your vision for your hair
An experienced stylist can provide a consultation and discuss your coloring options based on the health of your hair and the look you are trying to achieve. They will take the time to ensure that they fully understand the look you want to achieve.
High Quality, Professional Level Hair Coloring Products
If you choose the right salon for your hair coloring needs, professional level, high quality products will be used to color your hair. Professional level products are designed to be used by experienced professionals. In other words, unless you are a trained colorist do not attempt to use them.
These high-quality hair products are formulated to give exceptional results that also protect your hair from damage. Professional level products give your hair a beautiful, healthy, vibrant look that you just cannot get with at-home hair coloring kits.
The Hair Coloring Process Plays a Role in the Cost
There are different ways to achieve the look you want. The type of coloring process will play a role in how much you pay for the process. Highlights, low lights, Balayage, whole head coloring, double process, partial process, fantasy colors and more are all different ways to get the color that you will love but it all affects the pricing.
For example, if you need to touch up those roots a bit that will start at about $70 bucks. If you want that sexy platinum look and your need double processing that is going to run you a little more, anywhere between $100-$150 depending on the length of your hair. Professional highlights that give your hair that razzle dazzle will cost between $80 -$230 depending on several factors like hair length, thickness and more.
A good rule of thumb to remember is the more that has to be done to your hair to reach your color goals, the more expensive it will be. At Bombshell all our color treatment options are affordable for both the guys and dolls and deliver the professional results you want for your look.
An experienced stylist can consult with you and provide you with the information you need to make the right decision about which color process is best to make your vision a reality.
