7 Things You Should Know Before Going A Your Boise Hair Salon

When it comes to cutting or coloring your hair, most of us have a specific look in mind. Even the slightest trim can affect you in a powerful way. It can not only turn your worst hair days into the best you’ve ever seen, but it can also boost your self-confidence and overall sense of empowerment. However, if something goes wrong, it can leave you feeling very depressed (need we say more?).

What most people don’t know is that they can make the process of changing their hair less risky with a few basic steps. So to help you avoid a hair meltdown (we’ve all been there), the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have put together the following pro tips before visiting the salon.

Home Hair Care Is Important

If you don’t properly care for your hair at home, you may be wasting your money at the salon. Using the correct salon-grade products based on your individual hair type will prolong the color and style of your hair. During an initial consultation, it’s important to ask your stylist to diagnose your hair and recommend the products they would suggest using.

Bring Photos To Your Appointment

The more pictures you bring in, the more your stylist can hone in on the vibe, color, and texture you want. Take a look at our Instagram page for inspiration on the styles our professionals specialize in. However, it’s important to keep in mind that you may not get exactly what a picture shows. This is because your hair may be a different length, texture, or color. But don’t let that deter you. At unDONE Salon, our stylists will do everything we can to achieve your hair goals based on your individual needs.

Be Honest About Your Hair History

At unDONE Salon, we are not here to judge you. When you arrive for your appointment, be prepared to discuss your hair history. During this time, it’s essential to be honest about what you’ve done in the past and what you use regularly. For example, tell us if you’ve used a box-dye to go platinum blonde before attempting to correct it with a darker color. This will determine the best course of action (such as a color correction), the end result, and how healthy your hair will be going forward. If you lie and say you have virgin hair, there’s a big possibility of ending up with unwanted results.

Color Correction Takes Time

It’s happened to the best of us. Using the example above, if you’ve dyed your hair platinum blonde and attempted to fix it using a darker color, you may need a professional rescue. This means it could also be an expensive, time-consuming process. If this situation applies to you, make it clear what has happened and what you want to achieve. That’s why it’s best to book a free consultation before your appointment so that your Boise hair salon stylist knows how to plan accordingly.

It’s a Hair Journey

Not all styles are achievable with just one appointment. If you have naturally dark hair but want to go platinum blonde, it’s going to take some time and love. The same applies if you’ve ever dyed your hair a darker color, even if it was years ago. This means you don’t have virgin hair. If you’ve dyed it more than once, you have different layers of color that need to come out. Trying to force your hair to go as light as possible in one sitting will not only damage your hair, but it will also leave you with a big, expensive color correction that needs to be done. See our example above. Furthermore, your stylist at unDONE will advise you on how often you will need to make routine salon appointments and what you need to do to maintain your hair in between.

Treat your Hair Well

Preventing damage and protecting your hair is key to maintaining healthy, beautiful locks. At unDONE Salon, we offer reparative services to help protect and nourish your hair. We also suggest using Davines MINU hair mask once a week that is formulated to deeply nourish colored hair, making it soft and silky while extending the duration of your professional hair color. During your consultation, take the time to ask the types of salon-grade products we suggest using that match your individual hair type.

Plan Accordingly

At unDONE, our stylists have limited availability. This means that if you are running late to your appointment, it’s important to contact us ASAP. If you are more than 15 minutes late, we may not be able to perform your complete service as we have other client bookings. We will do our very best to accommodate any last-minute changes, but we will have to rebook your appointment if we don’t have enough time.
