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 the head 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.
