Have you ever considered coloring your hair all on your own? A good color job takes skill and usually you can tell instantly if someone has done a good job or should consider buying a hat. Therefore, you must ask yourself is it more time and cost effective to color at home or at the salon?
Aura Friedman is a Wella colorist who regularly helps superstar M.I.A. switch color shades. Friedman’s advice is simple she says, “When you’re making a big shade change, like brunette to blonde, there’s no substitute for the salon.” Nevertheless, going into the salon for a coloring takes some dough, but there are ways to save some money.
For example, strategically placed color will grow in better and means that you won’t have to go your hairstylist often for touchups. Friedman continues, “For fall, I prefer to paint deeper tones on the underside of hair so that it looks natural as it grows out. Or if you love a celebrity’s hair in a photo, only a professional colorist will know where to apply highlights and lowlights. You can’t get that from a box.” I have to say that professional hair coloring would be for the best and will probably save you from frying or losing your hair. However, what you can do at home to save even more dollars is to do easy root touch-ups in between visits to extend the coloring job.
