Boise Hair Salon Tips For Getting the Hair Color You Want

Most of us have had some sort of hair color catastrophe. If you’ve ever colored your hair on your own or walked into an unknown salon without previewing their work, you’ve probably paid the ultimate price. That’s the worst feeling ever, right? So how do you avoid these kind of tragedies? At unDONE Salon, we’ve got you covered with the following tips for getting the right hair color you want.

Getting The Perfect Hair Color

Reviews & Portfolio

It doesn’t matter if you pick the most expensive salon, it’s best to look at a stylist’s personal portfolio before making an appointment for a new hair color. Doing so will allow you to see examples of their previous work. It’s also important to read the reviews of any salon. Keep in mind, there will ALWAYS be negative reviews because it’s impossible to please everyone. However, if you find more negative reviews than good ones, this could be a red flag to go somewhere else. Furthermore, take the time to read a stylist’s bio on a salon’s website if it’s available to see if they would be a good fit for the look you want to achieve.

Healthy Hair Equals Beautiful Color

One of the most important factors in getting the hair color you want is to keep your hair healthy. If you go into your Boise hair salon with damaged, unhealthy hair, your stylist may be hesitant about coloring it. Care for your hair with deep conditioning treatments and limit shampooing to every other day. It’s also important to reduce your use of hot tools as much as you can.

Look For Inspiration

With social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest, finding inspiration for your next hair color is super simple. However, it’s important to choose your inspiration photos carefully. Only pick the hair colors you REALLY love, and be prepared to show them to your stylist before your appointment. You’ll also want to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have the same hair length?
  • Do you have their hair thickness?
  • Do you have their hair texture?
  • Do you have their skin tone?
  • Do you have their features?
  • Do you style my hair like this?

It’s very important to make these distinctions so that you have a realistic expectation as to what a certain hair color will really look like on you. It’s also important to show your stylist pictures of what you don’t like. This will help you and your stylist find the perfect hair color through open communication.

Be Honest About Your Past

Don’t be afraid, to be honest with your stylist. During a consultation, take the time to provide them with a brief history of your hair. Things we want to know include whether you currently have color on your hair, how long it’s been between colors, and what products you use.

Furthermore, when your stylist asks you questions, give them honest answers. During a consultation, we need all the details to ensure you get the right hair color in the end. Come into our salon as you are and let us evaluate your current hair. Your ideal hair color should compliment your skin tone, eye color, and lifestyle.

Make A Proper Appointment

The first step to getting the perfect hair color is to schedule a free consultation before you do anything. Ideally, your consultation should be scheduled for a different day than your coloring appointment. Why? Doing so will ensure you get the right amount of time for the services you need. If you try to get everything done the same day, you risk not getting the best results.

Understanding Color Correction

Boise Hair Salon

Hi unDONE family! Have you ever heard the term “color correction” before? Perhaps you don’t fully understand the process and why it can be so expensive. Well, that’s why we’d like to provide you with the following information about color correction to give you the answers you need.

Most of our Boise hair salon stylists here at unDONE have done MANY color corrections during our careers. While it can be a long and grueling process, the end results are always worth it if you’ve ever had a color catastrophe.

Understanding Color Correction

There are a wide variety of color corrections, but two of the most common are making really dark hair lighter, or making really light hair darker. Have you ever visited your stylist after dying your hair with a dark box color and wanted to go blonde? Lightening your hair after using a dark DIY color on your hair isn’t always as easy as you may think.

Your hair will need to be bleached. This can take several appointments to maintain the health and integrity of your hair without damaging it. Furthermore, after using a box dye, your hair is more prone to lift unevenly with reddish and orange tones. During this process, your stylist will have to work to cancel out these uneven tones before you can even think about achieving your desired hair color.

Furthermore, if your hair is already platinum blonde and you want to go to a dark color, your stylist will have to fill your hair with a base color as blonde hair doesn’t have any pigment. They will then put your desired color on top of the filler once it’s rinsed out.

Keep in mind that some color corrections are easier than others. While some can be done in a single appointment, others can take weeks to accomplish. It all depends on your individual hair and what you are trying to achieve.

Why Color Correction Can Get Pricey

Depending on the severity of your situation, most Boise hair salons charge between $100 – $200 for a color correction. Why? Depending on your hair’s individual needs, some color corrections can take up to six hours per treatment. This means your stylist is unable to fit any other clients in during this time. Not only that, but your stylist has to use larger amounts of color to achieve the desired tone. Furthermore, proper application is crucial when it comes to fixing your hair color during a correction, which takes time. Once your hair has been successfully lightened or filled with pigment, your stylist will have to tone your hair with just the right colors to get rid of any brassy, green, or red tones, which can be a massive step during the color correction process.

At unDONE, we’ve had many clients call us for help after attempting to color their hair at home. If you are thinking of going the DIY route, we speak from experience that 99% of the time, it goes badly. From fried hair to multiple shades of yellow, orange, and gold, we’ve seen it all, and nobody likes the end results. That’s why it’s important to trust your hair with a stylist at unDONE salon. We are trained professionals for a reason!

Summer Tips For Boise Eyelash Extensions

At unDONE Salon, eyelash extensions and summer are two of our favorite things. Now that the 4th of July is in just a few days, we think it’s safe to say that summer in the Treasure Valley is finally in full swing!

Summertime is full of long sunny days, typically spent outside, lounging next to the pool or floating the Boise River. It also means plenty of warm nights gathered around the grill with family and friends, along with weekend camping trips. What’s not to love?

Even more, eyelash extensions are a low maintenance option to get up and go with little to no need for makeup during the dog days of summer. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following summer tips to help keep your eyelash extensions looking fabulous all season long.

Boise Eyelash Extensions Summer Tips

Rinse & Pat Dry After Swimming

Over the summer, chlorine and salt water from swimming pools can affect lash retention. That’s why we recommend rinsing your face with fresh water after you swim, then gently comb your lashes with a lash wand or pat them dry (without rubbing) to remove excess water, salt, and chlorine.

Avoid Direct Heat

Exposure to direct heat can relax the curl of your eyelash extensions or even singe them. When grilling or sitting around a campfire, it’s important not to get too close or directly over the heat. Doing so will ensure your lashes are beautiful and intact.

Summer = More Sweat

It’s nearly impossible to enjoy the outdoors during summer and not sweat. However, sweat carries natural oils and salt from your skin that can affect lash retention. At unDONE Salon, we strongly believe in the benefits of exercise. However, to keep your eyelashes looking beautiful, we recommend the use of a towel or sweatband when working up a sweat. Last, but not least, rinse your lashes post workout with fresh water.

Keeping Your Lash Extensions Clean

Whether you are camping, hiking, or swimming, being outside can lead to an increase in dirt and debris collecting in your eyelash extensions. At unDONE, we recommend keeping them clean by rinsing in the shower and allowing the water to pass through them. You can also use a specialized lash cleanser recommended by your professional lash extension tech and a super gentle cleansing brush to thoroughly clean them regularly.

Sunscreen Application

Using sunscreen during the summer is an absolute must to protect your skin from the damaging effects of harmful UV rays of the sun. However, most brands of sunscreen contain oils that can run onto your eyelash extensions which can lead to excessive shedding. That’s why recommend taking extra precaution when applying your sunscreen by avoiding the eye area and to allow it to fully soak in before swimming or sweating.

unDONE Salon

Eyelash extensions are a great way to compliment your summertime look. When handled with care, you can wake up day after day with long, lush eyelashes that look completely natural when professionally applied at our Boise hair salon. Say goodbye to mascara runs, and “raccoon” eyes at the pool, and say hello to set of well-placed eyelash extensions!

Get noticeably longer, darker, fuller eyelashes at Undone Salon. Our skilled technicians dedicate an extended amount of time to ensure a proper application. For more information contact us at (208) 287-2010 or schedule an appointment online today.

3 Tips For Properly Scheduling Your Boise Hair Salon Appointment

Boise Hair Salon Appointments

Things can get confusing when it comes to booking your hair, skin, or nails appointment with your Boise hair salon. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with the following tips for booking your appointment in today’s blog and how to get the most out of it.

Pre-Book In Advance

When you pre-book your appointment in advance, you are more likely to get the stylist you want and the time necessary for your unique service. If you contact your Boise hair salon at the last minute to try and get squeezed in, you might get lucky with an open spot. However, that doesn’t guarantee the stylist you want or the time needed for a full service.

At unDONE, we’ve had plenty of people call us at the last minute for a hair emergency that isn’t an emergency but rather bad planning. This, in turn, isn’t fair to anyone, including the stylists and other clients who took the time to pre-booked their appointments in advance. While our Boise hair salon stylists will do everything they can to fit you in, it’s better to pre-book for the ideal time and the stylist you are looking for.

Give As Much Information As Possible

If you know that you will need your hair styled after your service, it’s important to let your Boise hair salon stylist know. If you inform them at the end of your service, you may not end up with the quality results you are looking for if it has to be rushed. You may also end up being charged for this service you forgot to mention on top of the one you scheduled.  That’s why we recommend letting your stylist know exactly what you want done when scheduling an appointment, so we can book the appropriate time for your unique service.

It’s also important to keep in mind that a trim and a haircut are the same price. It doesn’t matter if you are getting a full cut or 3 inches removed, the process is the same. Furthermore, you can always ask your Boise hair salon stylist just to be sure so that there are no surprises in the end. While it sucks being charged for something you didn’t expect, any service provided to you at the salon is something you should expect to pay for. Don’t assume anything is free.  Always take the time to ask how much certain things cost before having them done.

Mention The Current Condition Of Your Hair

Last but not least, always take the time to inform your Boise hair salon stylist of the current condition of your hair. This will allow them to book your appointment accordingly for accurate results. For example, if you have black hair and want to go blonde, this can take several appointments to protect the health and integrity of your hair. You can’t just go blonde from black overnight. Let your stylist know, so they can make a game plan to achieve your desired results. Furthermore, by letting your stylist know the current condition of your hair, you will get the appropriate amount of time it takes for your service without being rushed through. This will provide you with the best service and results possible.

unDONE Salon

Now that you have these three easy tips, you will be able to properly schedule your Boise hair salon appointment. Keep in mind that while you may only have one stylist you trust, your stylist may have hundreds of clients. That’s why it’s important to properly book your appointment in advance. This way, it’s easier for us when you provide us with all the information upfront.

At unDONE Salon, we hope you found today’s blog helpful. If you would like more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at (208) 287-2010 or book online today.

Boise Hair Salon Solutions For Covering Gray Hair

Boise Hair Salon Gray Hair Color Solutions

Today, let’s talk about gray hair. For some women in the Treasure Valley, these pesky little strands of silver start to pop up in their late 20’s and quickly spread into our mid 30’s. For some lucky few, gray hair won’t show up until their 40 or even 50 years old.

Regardless of your age when they do show up, one thing’s for certain, they’re not going anywhere. That’s why you can stop pulling those single gray hairs that you find, whether or not you believe three will replace it. Furthermore, you don’t have to hide your hair beneath a hat or scarf either. At unDONE Salon, we have options to help you deal with the invasion of these pesky, unwanted gray hairs.

Gray Hair Coverage

Whether we like it or not, gray hair is a part of the natural aging process. In fact, genetics are a major contributing factor as to when you finally go gray. However, things like stress, poor health, and other factors play a role in how early gray hair appears. While some people are more willing to accept their gray hair, others may want to hide it with a natural looking or enhanced hair color.

Although we can’t stop the natural process of graying hair, it can be covered up at your Boise hair salon. Keep in mind that while many people think they can just go to the store and pick up a box of hair color, this is not a healthy, viable, or pretty solution. DIY hair color results can vary greatly from okay looking to absolutely horrible. Not to mention, you can seriously damage your hair in the process.

Furthermore, the process of coloring gray hair consists of careful color combination formulas that are best achieved by a professional hair stylist. Since gray hair doesn’t absorb hair color very well because it’s much coarser, it’s often considered “color resistant.” This is especially true in areas around your temples. Quite often, these areas of color resistant gray hair must be allowed to absorb hair color longer than what is recommended for normal hair.

Gray Hair Color Solutions

When it comes to coloring your gray hair, there are several options available. Understanding which option is right for you and how to properly approach the process should be left to a professional when it comes to achieving the desired look you want to achieve.

Highlights

A popular approach to coloring gray hair is highlights. Highlights are a wonderful option because the hair color is diversified. Since gray hair is devoid of any color pigment, it will absorb hair color differently and often has a different contrast against your natural color. This, in turn, results in a better balanced, more natural look with minimal maintenance compared to all-over hairi color.

Permanent Hair Color

Permanent hair color provides a deeper penetration to gray hair follicles. Furthermore, if you choose this option, your Boise hair salon stylist may suggest selecting a lighter permanent color because it will look more natural and better resist strong contrast when new gray hairs appear at your roots.

Demi-permanent Colors

Another option to covering gray hair is to utilize demi-permanent hair color. These dyes don’t have ammonia and won’t penetrate the hair shaft as deeply as a permanent hair color. Keep in mind, they also won’t lighten your natural shade. However, demi-permanent colors are a great way to blend gray hair for a subtle approach to hair coloring.

Undone Salon

Whether you opt to embrace your gray hair or cover it up, there are a wide variety of hair color options to make the most out of your hairstyle. With so many color formulas available, you can either cover your gray completely or highlight your silver tresses with toned shampoos and color glazes, it’s really up to you.

Make an appointment today with one of the talented Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE to effectively cover up your gray hair, giving you a younger look that lasts. Book online or give us a call at (208) 287-2010 today.

Understanding Common Boise Hair Salon Color Techniques

Boise Hair Salon Color Techniques

Are you stuck in a hair rut? A great way to breath new life into your hair is by changing up your color. Need some inspiration or just want to understand some basic hair color techniques? The Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have got you covered with the following roundup of fun ideas. Who knows? You might just find the technique that works best for you. Just remember to send a picture of the hair color you’re dreaming to your stylist before making an appointment.

BALAYAGE

Balayage is a pretty sounding French word that means to sweep or paint color onto hair. This hair color service is actually a specific highlighting technique. During a balayage treatment, your Boise hair salon stylist paints or lightens hair on the surface freehand instead of saturating entire sections of your hair with dye. The end result is softer, more natural looking highlights that easily blend in as your hair grows longer.

OMBRE

Ombre is a hair color treatment that allows your darker roots to fade into a much lighter color at the ends, such as blonde. If your hair isn’t naturally dark, you may want to ask your Boise hair salon stylist to deepen the natural shade at your roots for a more dramatic ombre. Keep in mind that balayage is a hair color technique while ombre is an end look. Your Boise hair salon stylist will use the balayage (highlighting) technique to achieve an ombre outcome.

SOMEBRE

Sombre is often considered the softer sister of ombre. With this method, there is a lower contrast between your hair at the roots than your hair at the ends. Furthermore, the dark shade at your roots will subtly graduate into the color at the ends for a seamless blend.

HIGHLIGHTS

Highlights are the sections of your hair that are dyed lighter than your natural shade. This technique can be used to give your hair more dimension, accentuate your facial features, or slim the look of your face altogether. Keep in mind that highlights are the opposite of lowlights which are strands of your hair that are dyed darker than your natural shade. To add highlights to your hair, your Boise hair salon stylist may use one of two techniques, foil highlights or balayage.

BABY HIGHLIGHTS

Baby highlights consist of tiny, subtle highlights that resemble the same sun-kissed highlights you had as a child. They get their delicate appearance from the very small amounts of hair color that are separated and placed in foil.

HAIR GLOSS

A hair gloss treatment consists of closing the cuticles of your hair, providing a smoother, shinier, and less frizzy look. In a tinted form, it’s a wonderful ammonia-free, semi-permanent alternative to hair dye. If you’ve already colored your hair, getting a hair gloss treatment can help you maintain your color longer while correcting brassiness and deepening or toning down your color. Furthermore, if you don’t want to change your hair color but want to reap all the shiny benefits, you can opt for a clear gloss, instead.

unDONE Salon

There you have it – the six most commonly used hair color techniques! At unDONE, we know hair salon jargon can get confusing. That’s why we wanted to provide you with the above cheat sheet to provide you with a basic understanding of all the techniques you’ve heard floating around online. More importantly, however, is to speak up and ask your Boise hair salon stylist questions when you don’t understand something. We promise to keep you informed in order to provide you with bright, vibrant, multi-dimensional hair color that looks amazing.

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Avoiding A Bad Haircut

Boise Hair Salon Tips

Let’s be honest, we’ve all experienced a bad haircut. While we all know our hair will grow back, dealing with a bad haircut can be distressing. That’s why unDONE has put together the following Boise hair salon tips for avoiding a bad haircut if you’re in the market for a new style.

Avoiding A Bad Haircut

Do Your Homework

While you put trust in your Boise hair salon stylist when you’re in the chair, there’s still a lot you can do to make sure you get the look you want. Take the time to research different hairstyles by going online or looking in magazines. By showing your stylist a picture of the cut you want, you will provide them with an idea of what you’re hoping to achieve. Furthermore, your stylist will be able to tell you if a particular haircut will work for you depending on your hair type, face shape, etc.

Don’t Waste Time

It’s important to arrive at least 10 minutes early to your appointment to receive the best possible service. Why? If you show up late, you risk valuable cutting and styling time. Keep in mind, that your stylist probably has other appointments scheduled after you. Arriving on-time is not only respectful, it allows your stylist to focus on your hair without being rushed.

Communicate

The moment you take a seat in the chair, it’s important to communicate with your Boise hair salon stylist about what you like and don’t like. Furthermore, it’s important to listen to their honest feedback. A pixie cut isn’t necessarily for everyone. Your new cut needs to suit your face, head shape, hair type, and age. Your Boise hair salon stylist will also provide you with helpful suggestions on how the style you want can be improved for the better.

Follow Recommendations

While getting the perfect cut, you have the perfect opportunity to ask your Boise hair salon stylist for some great at-home styling advice. Even the best haircut in the world won’t look as good as it could if you don’t know how to style it or what products to use to maintain it. If you are unsure about anything, just ask!

At unDONE, our stylists are more than happy to show you which products we recommend and provide you with the best tips and tricks to make your style come alive. Even more, be honest. If you don’t have time to blow-dry and style every morning, your Boise hair salon stylist might recommend a different cut to reduce the amount of time you spend on your hair.

Schedule Regular Appointments

At unDONE, we cannot stress this enough. To avoid a bad haircut, you’ll want to schedule regular appointments in order to keep your hairstyle looking as sharp and flattering as ever.

Try Something New

Okay… We know that most people throughout the Treasure Valley are loyal to their hair. This makes it hard for them to want to change their style. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it, right? Nah… It’s important to try switching things up every now and again, especially if you’ve been rocking the same style since the 80’s. Don’t be afraid to try something new. You never know, you might end up with a completely new look you love.

Speak Up

Last, but not least, if there’s something you don’t like about your haircut, SPEAK UP. That way your stylist can fix it before you walk out of the salon unhappy. Be honest, and let us know if there are any areas you are unsatisfied with and allow your stylist to fix the problem in the best way possible.

unDONE Salon

If you are considering a new haircut, it’s important to contact the stylists at unDONE Salon at (208) 287-2010 or schedule a free consultation online before taking the plunge with any style. Just provide us with some pictures and don’t be afraid to ask questions. We promise to help you have fun choosing your next haircut!

Boise Hair Salon Facts About Going Blonde

Being blonde is easy, right? Think again. Going blonde from dark hair can be a timely and costly process. Not to mention it’s a high maintenance hair color that requires some special TLC in order to stay looking fabulous. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with the following Boise hair salon facts about going blonde if you are considering this hair color for the first time or simply want to change your already blonde strands.

Your Natural Hair Color Matters

If your hair is naturally very dark, your Boise hair salon stylist will more than likely suggest a transition plan for your hair color journey. Why? We do this because we are taking into consideration the current health of your hair as well as its ability to lift and lighten. While going from dark to blonde is definitely achievable, it’s impossible to do in one session. Furthermore, depending on your individual needs, it may not be the best option for you.

Your Hair Will Require Some Special TLC

Excessive bleaching can lead to weaker hair strands. That’s why it’s important to restore and maintain your hair at least once a week using a deep conditioning treatment to hydrate your hair. At unDONE, we recommend using Davines MINU Deep Conditioning Hair Mask. This deep conditioning treatment is formulated to deeply nourish bleached and colored hair.

There Are A TON Of Different Blonde Options

Maintaining blonde hair requires some quality time with your Boise hair salon stylist. If you’re just starting out and looking for a smaller, less invasive commitment on the blonde spectrum, you may want to consider a balayage. This hair coloring technique incorporates darker roots and lighter ends for clients who don’t want to deal with the hassle of constant maintenance while keeping their strands blonde.

Furthermore, depending on the levels of blonde you want to achieve, this hair color can range from platinum to red to dirty blonde. That’s why it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist to help choose the right shade for you.

NEVER Go The DIY Route

DIY’s are great for home crafts, however, they are terrible for lightening your hair. While it may seem like a fast, affordable way to go blonde, no one wants to end up with brassy, yellow, mismatched results. Not to mention you can seriously end up damaging your hair. Leave the process of coloring your hair to the professionals and trust your stylist to take your hair to newer, blonder heights without any unwanted mishaps.

Take Into Consideration Your Skin Tone

If you are unsure of what shade of blonde you should choose, it’s important to take your skin tone into consideration and talk with your stylist about the best available options. Typically, those with paler skin tones look great with ashy, pearlescent shades. For those with warmer skin tones, you may want something more golden.

You May Need To Use Different Makeup

Many people who go blonde, end up changing your their makeup choices. Whether it’s changing the shade of your eyebrow pencil or opting for new eyeliner colors, there are plenty of ways your blonde hair can affect your makeup look. If you’re unsure of what colors will work best for your lightened hair, you may want to visit your nearest department store for a quick makeup consultation. Doing so is an easy way to discover the best makeup colors for your hair color.

Your Hair Texture Can Change

The process of bleaching and lightening your hair can actually change your hair texture. Furthermore, those with natural curls may end up with straighter, drier strands. On the other hand, those with naturally straight hair may end up with more volume because the cuticle of their hair has been roughened up.

Be Honest With Your Stylist

While there are some things you don’t want to admit to like having used an at-home hair color, it’s important to be honest with your stylist before going blonde. Knowing if and how much your hair has been previously colored can help us determine your hair color formula to get the best results for you without damaging it in the process.

unDONE Salon

At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists are more than happy to help you take the blonde plunge. As long as you’ve done your homework and feel confident about the look you want, we can provide you with the glamorous, new transformation you’re aiming for. If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, contact us at (208) 287-2010 or schedule online. We look forward to providing you with a gorgeous new hair color you will love!

Permanent Makeup Boise: Achieving Powdered Brow Perfection

Permanent Makeup Boise

Have you been hearing about powdered brows but don’t understand what all the buzz is about? Well, you certainly not alone. If you’ve been seeing some of the amazing photos we’ve been sharing on Facebook and Instagram, you’re one step closer to understanding what this magical semi-permanent service is and how it can be a big benefit to your daily beauty routine. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with a little more information about this wonderful, new service available at our salon in Boise, Idaho.

Powder Brows At unDONE Salon

Powdered brows are the latest trend in Boise, Idaho for semi-permanent makeup. To frame the face with perfectly shaped brows, our trained and certified brow expert will use specially formulated colors to create a natural look with depth and dimension – fading from dark to light. This technique differs from microblading in that it’s a much less invasive option that doesn’t consist of cutting hair like strokes into the skin. Even more, powder brows are long lasting and only require touch-ups once a year.

However, at unDONE, we do realize that the idea of getting a semi-permanent tattoo on your face may be a bit intimidating. But trust us – once you learn more about this service, it be a lot less intimidating. Even more, if the thought of saying goodbye to drawing and filling in your eyebrows every morning is appealing to you, you’ll contact us in a hurry.

The Powdered Brow Process

  • Consultation. You’ll meet with our trained and certified brow expert to discuss your beauty goals and determine the best way to achieve them.
  • Shape. Your brows will then be drawn on temporarily for your approval before the tattooing process.
  • Color. Next, we will help you select the perfect color that you’d like your eyebrows to be.
  • Application. Next, our brow expert will get to work. The process typically takes between 2-2 ½ hours.
  • Touch-Up. Once your brows fade to a softener, more natural color after 7-10 days, we will schedule a professional touch up 4-6 weeks later to ensure we have achieved the right color level. After that, you will only need to have your brows touched up once a year.
