Brunette to blonde, blonde to brunette and then back to blonde again.
As easy as Kim K has led us to believe? Not quite. What you don't see behind these huge hair transformations on Instagram is the amount of time, effort and money that is required. Is it possible to take your hair from box dye black to platinum blonde in one day? Yes! Will it take longer than one standard 3 hour balayage appointment and cost more? Yes! Will you be left with chewing gum hair that you can't do anything with? Also yes! And that is why at Pure Hair Studio we follow a low and slow approach with the belief that slow and steady wins the race.
So can you really take someone from dark box dye to blonde in one day? It's not impossible and it has been done. If the client has prepped their hair for 2 months prior to their appointment with Olaplex No.3, No.4 & No.5; is prepared to lose as much length as the hair stylist deems necessary; is prepared to spend most of the day in the salon (we are talking 9am-5pm minimum here); will purchase all the home care products the hair stylist recommends; and, fully understands and appreciates that none of the above comes cheap - then yes it is achievable. A cost not mentioned here? The condition of your hair. Strengthening the hair leading up to and during your appointment with Olaplex and cutting off dead ends can only do so much. If hair is pushed too far in one appointment and becomes over processed, then there is no fix for that.... unless you're willing to rock a Britney Spears-style head shave!
Our Stylists at Pure Hair Studio are more than happy to start you on your process from dark to blonde - we love a hair journey! We will never do anything to compromise your hair's integrity (we include Olaplex in every colour service!) and never push it further in one appointment than we think it can handle. It might not happen in one appointment, but with the right home care products, patience, and faith and trust in us - we can get you to your dream hair!
Here is what we strongly recommend if you are thinking you would like to start a dark to blonde transformation:
- Give your hair a nice hydrating drink with a Moroccanoil Mask. Moisture for your hair is so important (especially here in Queenstown where the climate is so dry). Hydrated hair will hang on to colour longer than dry, thirsty hair. There are 4 different masks in the range, so we can prescribe the correct mask for your hair's needs.
- Leave no longer than 10 weeks between haircuts. Split ends do not heal and if they aren't snipped away, they will continue to split further and further up the hair shaft until breakage occurs.
- Finally, book in for a colour consultation so we can evaluate your hair and help you to reach your hair goals.
