Puzzled about whether you should have a single process or double process hair color?

Single-Process Hair Color
A new color or toner is applied all over your hair to create a new base color. The hair is lifted and deposited in one easy step. This process is wonderful for covering grays and adding shine.
Double-Process Hair Color
Typically used when lightening hair with more than two shades. First the hair is bleached to remove natural or colored hair pigments and then the pigment is added into the hair to create the desired shade.
Foiling
Allows different colors to be placed in any pattern desired. Hair color application becomes so important during this process. Foiling is a versatile method that leaves room for unlimited creativity. Foil placement once again is essential in this process.
The Corrective Coloring Process
This process is more often than not used to remove unwanted colors or tones from the hair. This usually takes a few processes and a consultation is recommended prior to your appointment; that way you will have a good understanding of how long the process will take and how much it will cost.
Toner
Simply delivers shine and tone to hair removing unwanted color
Glossing
A wonderful way to step into color for the first time. We have hair color that delivers a built-in shine coat to the hair, leaving it soft and super glossy
Hair painting
The French form of highlighting, where the highlights are hand-painted into each strand of hair for multidimensional highlights.
