How Often Should You See Your Hair Colourist?

May 25, 2018Hair Colour

Changing the shade of your natural hair or going for a dramatic new colour is almost one of the rites of passage into trendy society in Melbourne. Fortunately, in the hands of a creative colour director at a reputable salon, it’s an experiment that will land you an incredible new look, without compromising the quality of your hair.

The question is, to truly create and maintain your new look, how often should you see your hair colourist? The answer, in short, is that it depends.

Any colour change takes maintenance, but the frequency will vary according to what you’ve had done, how different it is to your natural colour and the condition or type of hair. Every person is unique and your hair colourist can give you a customised recommendation.

If you’re looking for some general tips or weighing up alternatives, then in our experience, these guidelines will help:

  • The natural look: Balayage

8 – 12 weeks between salon visits with a toner in-between.

  • Uplifting highlights: Foil

6 – 8 weeks to keep the seamless, non-stripey look.

  • Roots to ends: Bleach

4 – 6 weeks for a full platinum that stays even and smooth.

  • Designed to fade: Semi-permanent tints

8 weeks should be sufficient, unless you’ve chosen an ultra-vibrant colour.

  • Grey coverage or intense lightening: Permanent tints

3 – 6 weeks to keep grey at bay or to avoid dark roots.

  • Trending Fashion Colours

1 – 3 weeks to maintain the hue and tone.

Whether you want to enhance your natural hair colour, convey a sense of confidence or simply feel fabulous, in the hands of our creativehair colourist, your look can be long-lasting and healthy with the correct maintenance.
