How do I prep my hair before my visit?
Updated: Aug 28, 2019
You wouldn't go to the dentist without brushing your teeth, would you? So please brush your hair and follow these simple instructions before heading to your hairdresser.
A nasty rumor must have been spread years ago that you should go to the hair salon with dirty hair, because its easier for your stylist to do your color. That is not the case! When you haven't washed your hair for days, there is product build up and your natural oils which can cause color or lightener to work less effectively. Also, I would rather not run my fingers through your 3 day old hair...just sayin. So please shampoo and condition the day before your appointment. If you plan on going lighter, its a good idea to do a deep conditioning mask the day before your appointment as well.
This one may sound like a no brainer, but detangle your hair before you arrive to your appointment. This way we won't spend precious time combing through all those tangles. :)
I love looking at inspirational hair photos! Doesn't everyone? Make sure to have a few of your favorite hair pics saved on your phone. Make it easy to pull up and let's chat about making YOUR hair Ista-worthy!
And don't forget to take care of your hair after your appointment too. There's only so much I can do during one appointment setting, and then its your turn to keep that color and style looking amazing! Remember to protect your investment by using the recommended products and styling tips until your next visit to the salon.
