Color Correction 101: Rescuing Your Hair from DIY Disasters

Updated: Apr 9

We get it - in the era of online tutorials and DIY beauty experiments, you could be tempted to transform your hair color at home. However, as the saying goes, the road to hair hell is paved with good intentions. If you find yourself in need of a hair color intervention after a DIY disaster, fear not. We see them all the time! Our team at Changes Hair Studio, Shelburne premier luxury hair salon, specializes in color correction, helping you bid farewell to those unintended hues and welcome back the luscious locks you love. Let's dive into Color Correction 101 and explore how our Shelburne hair stylists can rescue your hair from DIY mishaps.

What are the Risks of Coloring my Hair at Home?

Many adventurous souls have tried their hand at home hair coloring kits, enticed by the promise of salon-quality results in the comfort of their own bathrooms. However, achieving the perfect color is an art that goes beyond mixing shades in a bowl. If you’ve never dyed your own hair before, think twice.  You can do some real damage to your hair or make a mistake that could be really expensive to fix when you come back to the salon.  You wouldn’t imagine the situations we’ve had to deal with.  

Common do-it-yourself color challenges include uneven application, brassy tones, and, in many cases, unexpected colors that have left clients feeling less than satisfied.  You also have to worry about possible allergic reactions and scalp burning.  Your Shelburne hair colour experts at Changes Hair Studio don’t train for years as hair color experts and pass certifications for nothing!  We've encountered it all and we have the knowledge and skills to address these challenges, offering tailored solutions that restore your hair's natural beauty.

What is Color Correction?

Color correction is not a one-size-fits-all process. It requires a careful assessment of the current state of your hair, the products used, and the desired end result. Our Shelburne hair color correction specialists take a personalized approach, understanding that each client's hair journey is unique.

First and foremost, we conduct a thorough consultation to grasp the specifics of your DIY adventure. Did you aim for a honey blonde and end up with a brassy disaster? Or perhaps an attempt at a vibrant red turned into an unexpected shade of orange? Whatever the case, our team is here to listen, analyze, and create a tailored plan to correct the color mishap.
