AN INTRODUCTION TO COLOUR
Here at TCR we pride ourselves on all our colour work and would go as far as to say we are a "colour specialist salon". Nathan our Artistic Director makes sure that all his colourists share his knowledge on everything colour. Nathan has worked as a CRAFT educator for one of leading colour houses Matrix for over 4 years meaning that he is always at the top the game having inside knowledge when it comes to the latest hair colour products and techniques. All our stylists are always attending in salon training as well Matrix colour courses to provide the best possible professional colour services for our clients.
Hair colour can be used in a number of ways professionally. We have a whole range of hair colour products by Matrix for all procedures. You want to cover grey hair, remove unwanted colour or bands of colour, high or low light your hair, balayage or ombre, the list goes on. Colour is an amazing way of enhancing your hair cut, your personality or just making you feel confident about yourself.
It all starts with a personalised consultation where we will go through your hair type, previous chemical services and what you are looking to achieve. If you have not visited our salon before or its been longer than 6 months since you last had a colour service with us than you will be required to have a simple skin test 48 hours before your colour service. Don't worry it doesn't take any longer than 30 seconds!
Our price list below gives you our whole range of colour services. If you are not sure what service is best for you we can discuss this at your free consultation. The price list shows two prices. In the teal colour and the larger amount is the price for the colour service with a cut and finish. The price in black and the lesser amount is the price for the colour service on its own. If you want our "rough dry" service or a complete finish please check our Dry & Styling menu for further pricing..
A total colour is one block colour. We use this technique for someone who might want to inject a new all over tone into their existing hair colour. This is a great beginners start to colouring as we can use a tone on tone colour which gradually fades out and does not leave a regrowth but at the same giving you amazing tone and shine.
If you are looking to blend unwanted grey hair away we have various hair colourants that blend or completely cover grey hair one total colour. We will look at your eye and skin colour to chose the perfect tone for you.
To maintain your new look you will need to pop back every 4-6 weeks to touch up your roots and refresh your ends. We use a mixture of Matrix SoColor, Extra Coverage and Colour Sync to give you perfect results.
If you are after our Totally Blonde service please allow more time for this appointment. The process involves us lifting you hair first with our Lightmaster system and then after this has developed for 30/50 minutes we will gloss and seal in your new chosen blonde tone. The maintenance for this service is every 4 weeks and also includes our BondULTIM8 treatment which leaves your hair strong and repaired.
having tones of colour that shade into each other, graduating from light to dark..
Ombre is one of the most on trend hair colour techniques of the moment, also known as a ‘colour melt’. We tailor the colours you want to your hair type and what type of maintenance you are after (some ombres can grow out naturally or need topping up more regularly). You can go ultra natural or bright and funky. We may need to pre lift your colour for certain colour choices. Its always best to check with your colourist first before booking.
After we have pre lightened your hair we will colour melt your new chosen shades from root to tip creating the softest or most vivid of ombres. If you want vivid ask about our NEW SoColor Cult colours!
a technique for highlighting hair in which the dye is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.
We love to Balayage! All our colourists are trained in the latest technique of balayage. With this process we hand paint highlights using either our pre lightener Lightmaster or our tonal Colour Graphic shades creating a soft, natural sun kissed colour. After we have lifted you hair we will give your hair that extra shot of colour with something from our blonde or brunette palette. This is a great way to brighten and add interest to hair without high maintenance.
HIGH OR LOWLIGHTS
High or Lowlights is a mixture of weaved or sliced colours through your hair to create a beautiful multidimensional textured look. This sort of technique is higher maintenance much like a Total Colour and will need to be topped up every 4 - 8 weeks.
