The fact that almost every product is 50% off what the suggested retail price is enough reason for me to buy all my hair, spa and beauty products there. Good for you! But i can do it myself. Here are some links: Good luck and let me know if you have more questions! Direct Dyes(like Pravana Vivids/Neons/Pastels, Paul Mitchell InkWorks, Redken City Beats, etc. It might not be accurate, but it’s less likely to create a disaster than a non-professional trying to figure it all out on their own! Please read the comment and response below for a brief explanation about who this article is for and why. Many shopping sites now offer professional hair dye that you can apply to your hair yourself, following simple instructions, for a lot less money than your typical salon visit. I have at least 3 shades in all the above lines as well as a few of their bleached or lighteners. It’s really just a disservice to yourself when you underestimate Others capabilities/talents. It’s like getting a pedicure or a facial…people can do that themselves, but they don’t because they enjoy the experience and would rather pay someone to do it. There is no substitute for experience and a credible education, which is what you get when you go to an American Board Certified Haircolorist(I say this rather than “professional hairstylist” for one reason…just because someone is a hairstylist does not mean they are good). I do think that lightening in sessions with backcombing could be a good thing for you considering you’re going for an ombré look. As others have mentioned, some people can’t leave their homes due to illnesses (physical, or mental), some people simply don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars going into the salon…the list goes on.

Maybe the lady can do it herself, don’t insult her by saying she,”may think” she can do it herself. That being said, once you find the right shade and figure out how strong the developer needs to be, then the process is pretty simple. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. On what you said about elementary teachers…comparing two people that have both completed the same educational requirements in order to practice is NOT the same as comparing someone who is self-taught to someone who has successfully completely the educational and licensure requirements to practice a trade. I do understand that everyone can’t get to a salon…so these articles are more for people who can afford professional hair color…but insist that they can do it better themselves. The last appointment she cut 8 1/2in off of my hair and then had the audacity to tell me she thought I trusted her when I was in tears astonished that she would do something so vile and unethical! If people want to try and do their hair at home with more complex products, it really is not your concern…this is the majority of the reason you can charge $400-$500 for color correction service. It doesn’t happen by chance…it happens when a professional haircolorist listens to your needs or wants and uses their knowledge to create the look you desire. See this great country that we live in we are all consumers, and then there’s that whole free-enterprise thing. Back then I was a bit more close-minded than I am now. Can practice enhance the quality of the work? I literally have dyed my hair since I was 16 and I’m 21 now, NO DAMAGE. Is our diy hair color not turning out because we are not allowed to purchase salon quality hair color without a license or is it because we are not master mind proffesionals like Erika?

I just wish that I could buy new, unopened product direct from the manufacturer instead of taking my chances with what I can find on eBay. Like your reality and putting it there. So it’s laughable how arrogant you are about your fancy smancy certification. I am a broke high school kid trying to bleach and colour her own hair. I appreciate your comment, and thanks for reading! If you Buy It Now, you'll only be purchasing this item. I’m glad that I’m consistently indecisive and paranoid because otherwise I wouldn’t have done hours and hours of research online (and stumble upon your article). No I can’t get the same results from pharmacy products because they don’t have the same color range and cannot customize the developer strength based on the lift I want, nor can I get products like Olaplex to protect my strands ect. Maybe you can try a different color technique that requires fewer touch-ups. Some places charge much more, but single color isn’t really specialized so if you’re paying more than that it’s just overpriced. We charge based on our experience level that we put the time, money, and work to make sure you look good. Additionally, you can incorporate a toning shampoo in your hair regimen to ward off the redness. I write posts to help people make better decisions when it comes to their hair, skin care, makeup, etc. We know so much more about placement techniques, formulation, possible outcomes, etc. I’ve been coloring my own hair done in 16, since I’ve ruined my hair more than once (using boxed kits) but I’ve come a long way since then and have educated myself in the proper use and chemistry of professional hair coloring (no, not from YouTube).
