Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to get my hair cut and coloured?
The cost depends on many factors. This includes the type of hair you have, the style you're after and the services you need. With colouring, for example, adding foils will increase the price. Check to see if your salon offers a free consultation session. Also ask for a detailed quote so you’re not caught by surprise.
How do I determine what hairstyle is best for my face shape?
Hairdressers at quality hair salons are trained to help you determine the best look. They’ll consider factors like the shape of your face, texture of your hair, your personality and your lifestyle.
Which colour will work best?
Choosing colour is an art in and of itself. A quality colourist will talk you through options based on your eye colour and skin tone. They’ll also discuss the latest seasonal colours.
What happens if I’m not happy with my hair cut and colour?
Check the hair salon’s policy before making an appointment to find out what happens if you’re not happy with the end result. If the salon didn’t do what they agreed to, you can push for a full refund or ask if the salon will fix your hair for free.
Can I just take a photo from a magasine in and ask for that look?
You can take a photo in to your hair salon, but be sure to ask the stylist for advice on whether it’s realistic for you to achieve that look. Sometimes clients (who aren’t experts in cutting and colouring) don’t understand that a certain cut and colour – even though they love it – might not work for them.
