How Easy Is It To Change Your Hair Colour?

Changing Your Hair Colour at Fox Hair Design Salons in Barwell or Hinckley

Fancy changing from brunette to blonde?  Considering the latest silver grey hair colour?  In this article we answer your questions about changing your hair colour. 

While changing your hair colour by a couple of shades can be achieved in one appointment, a more dramatic colour change will take several sittings…

Before you take the leap, think about the upkeep required with your new hair colour and consider whether it will suit you.  Try holding some fabric of a similar shade close to your skin to see which one looks best.

Going From Brunette to Blonde

A hair colour transformation isn’t going to happen overnight.  It may take two or more hair appointments to achieve your desired blonde as we will need to pre-lighten your hair before applying the blonde shade you desire.  Our colour specialists will assess the condition of your hair before determining the best way to proceed.

The good news is that advances in hair care products mean we can protect and even strengthen your hair during the hair colouring process. We offer Protection Cheveux Complexe treatments which protect, restructure and condition the hair both inside and outside during and after chemical treatments. 

Changing Your Hair Colour From Blonde to Brunette

Hair that has been bleached blonde may need to be pre-treated with a deep conditioning treatment such as pH-Bonder to ensure it is in a good condition to allow for further colouring.  We may suggest a gradual colour change, perhaps adding in some pretty lowlights or opting for a balayage look, prior to transforming your hair colour from blonde to brunette. 

Brunette to Red Hair Colour & Fashion Colour Transformations

As with all major hair colour transformations, a colour change from brunette to red or blonde to red will take several hair appointments to achieve.  The health of your hair is of paramount importance and we will be honest with you about what can be achieved and how long it will take.  Plus, there are many shades of red to choose from so why not book in for a colour consultation at Fox Hair Design so we can help you find the perfect red hair colour for you?

If you fancy a pretty fashion hair colour such as pink or lilac, the colour intensity will depend on the base colour of your hair.  For example, very blonde or white hair will display a magenta colour much more obviously than if it that colour were applied to darker hair.
