FAQs

  • Are home hair dyes as good as salon dye?

    While dye itself is often the same as home and salon dyes, the process that's involved in mixing the dye is far more intricate at the salon. Home dye kits contain standard amounts of dye and developer that need to be mixed prior to application. At the salon, stylists mix dyes and developers themselves and have more control over strength and color. This ensures the health of the hair can be protected, while the color of the hair is more suited to clients' preferences.

  • What products do salons use?

    Hair salons normally use high-quality products, including colors and color correctors, shampoos, conditioners, and styling products. Some of the most common brands seen in salons across the U.S. include Redken, Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and Rusk. With hair tools, stylists may use scissors, shears, and razors to cut and shape hair and a variety of combs, brushes, and heat tools to style clients' fresh cuts.

  • How much does hair coloring cost at a salon?

    The cost of hair coloring varies depending on several factors. Here are the national average costs for the most common hair coloring services:
  • How much do you tip a hairstylist and the salon staff?

    Tipping your hairstylist and salon staff is a great way to show your appreciation for their service. In most cases, a 20% tip is standard, but if a client is extremely pleased with the service, a larger tip is usually appreciated.

    Of course, in many salons, clients might encounter several staff members during a visit, including the stylist, salon owner, and shampooer. While the stylist’s tip is customary, it doesn’t hurt to supply a small tip for the shampooer, too. Most salon owners don't expect a tip if they don't provide the service.

  • How much do hair extensions cost at the salon? 

    The cost of hair extensions typically varies depending on the type of extensions and the amount of hair needed to achieve the clients' desired look. Here are the average costs for different extensions:
    • Tape-in extensions: $200
    • Glue-in extensions: $300 to $500
    • Sew-in extensions: $275
    • Weave: $100 to $600
    • Fusion: $200 to $1,000
  • Can all stylists do correctional hair coloring?

    Color-correction service is a long process that requires multiple salon visits. It's important that stylists undergo training specific to color correction, as corrective color solutions need to be customized to balance the color of hair and achieve desired results. Incorrectly performed color corrections can lead to severely damaged hair.

  • How much does it cost to fix a bad dye job?

    The cost of color correction depends on the color applied to the hair and the amount of hair on the clients' head. Color correction is a long process that can take between five and seven hours and is usually spread out over several weeks. This is especially true where hair has been dyed a darker color and needs to be lifted and re-dyed to a blonde shade. On average, clients can expect to pay about $100 for each hour spent with the stylist.
