Hair dying:  find out which technique is most suited to your needs

We know it can be tricky to book the right service for your hair colour. That's why we've put together a guide to help you understand which hair dying technique works best for you.

Dying my hair to cover my greys

One of the most common ways to hide grey hair is to apply a tone-on-tone hair dye, either on the full head or on the roots. With this technique, most white hair will be covered, but it requires regular maintenance: expect a colour top up every 4 weeks.

If you're naturally blonde or redhead, there's an alternative to conceal your grey hair: to apply baby lights (very thin highlights) to blend the white strands into a subtle balayage. Balayage has a higher upfront cost but avoids any clear regrowth line, and requires 3 times less maintenance than a full head colour. Read more about the benefits of balayage here.

If you're still unsure, we've put together detailed information about how to best cover grey hair.

Alternatively, you can book a free colouring consultation, with no strings attached, to explore your options :).

Coloured hair looks thicker

If you have fine, flat hair, you may want to consider having a full hair colour done. The simple fact of dying it creates the illusion of denser hair.

Balayage and highlights will add volume to your hair

Both techniques aim at creating constrast by dying strands of hair a few shades lighter than your base colour. This makes your hair look fuller, and it adds depth to it. Favour a balayage for a more subtle outcome, or opt for highlights if you're after more contrast.


Complete hair colour change or fix

If you want a big change i.e going from dark to light or the other way round, chances are it's a makeover. Equally, if your hair needs to be fixed after a desastrous home experiment or a failed salon visit, it's likely to involve a lot of work and to be very bespoke.

Please book a free colouring consultation with us or give us a call so we can discuss your options. We issue individual, bespoke quotes for colour changes as this kind of work is impossible to standardise.
