Looking for the perfect Hair Colorist to help you reach your hair goals?  Hair Color is not for every stylist.  In fact, over the counter hair color should be left for the professionals.  There is more to the science than picking out the model’s picture you like on a box of color.

So, what are some of the best ways to find a Hair Colorist?  

  • Pictures- Getting to know the colorist by looking at their work is an amazing way! Social Media lets us digitally view the hair colorist work.  If they are up on current trends chances are they post pictures on Instagram or Facebook.  This will help you weed through various stylists.
  • Word of Mouth-  Word of mouth is the best and the cheapest way to promote stylists.  If you see someones color that represents the look you are after than ask for the stylists name.  Then you can explore pictures on their social media pages as well.  One hint I suggest is finding someone that does the type of color services you are looking for.
  • Certified Colorist- What certifications do they hold in hair color? For instance, REDKEN has an additional certification process for stylist whom want to become Hair Color Certified.  This requires additional training and testing.  However, not all Redken Color users are certified.  Also, what kind of advance education do they attend to stay current on trends.  Trends are changing all the time, so it requires classes to keep colorists up to date.
  • Consultation- Your meet and greet should involve a thorough consultation.  It is important that she understands your hair color goals. However, be open to ideas or suggestions.  Not everything is always possible in one trip.  So, the advice of your colorist will guide you to the best decision.
