All new color guests will receive a complimentary color consultation before your appointment. This allows us to properly analyze your hair to better assist with scheduling and pricing to create the look you want. We’ll talk through your commitment level to find just the right color application for your lifestyle. (If you’re a low-maintenance kinda gal, we’ve got plenty of options, too—like balayage or ombre!) Our Color Specialists will also perform a color patch test (just to be sure you don’t have a reaction—this is state law) during your consultation. Have your inspiration ready—talking through your vision is exciting!


We want those luscious locks to stay looking fresh for as long as possible—and we’ll help you care for your new ‘do. Our Color Specialists will then go over everything you need to know to keep your newly-minted color looking as vibrant as the day you left our chair. We’ll give you a list of recommended products, and discuss when you need to come back (and how often), depending on your application.

Get ready—you’ll soon be living your best (and healthiest) hair life!


For first-time guests, here’s another reason to take the plunge—a $20 gift toward your first-time color!
