in need of a fix.?

Have you ever had the overwhelming urge to change up your hair color.?

If so, it is essential to take the time to make an appointment an experienced hairstylist that will give your hair the expert treatment it deserves.
However, for some the hair color calling is so strong they immediately head over to a local mall salon or one nearby or better yet to their local store, and grab a box of hair dye, and do the deed themselves. If that is the case, you may get undesirable results, in terms of both the color and integrity of your hair. If that is the case, you will require color correction by James Mac Studio.

what is a color correction.?

Color correction is when a professional stylist needs to correct the undesirable results of a previous hair coloring, done either at home or by an inexperienced stylist.
The undesirable color can be the result of years spent dying hair using boxed hair dye or by going to a random inexperienced stylist that may not be aware of how to take the proper steps to create a color transition. While some color corrections are possible in a step or two, others can be very complex and require several different visits back to our Studio.

why is it important to protect your hair

The first thing to realize, when hair gets lightened, color is removed out, not put in. This process causes hair to lose other essential proteins, leaving hair stripped of some nutrients. Repeatedly lightening hair can potentially cause damage to your hair, making it necessary to protect your hair.

Which is why at James Mac Studio we want to avoid using lightener or harsh products to remove unwanted color. In our experience, there is always another way.
We are a firm believer in using Olaplex System 1,2,3,4 & 5 when working with hair that is overly processed. Olaplex has been a fantastic product for us in our studio, we believe in so much, we have made it part of our routine to add it to most of our color services and for those clients who truly need to get their hair back to the healthier state. Understand many color corrections are spaced out over several visits. 
Specific goals need to be realistic; James Mac will take the time to understand your future hair goal. Everything we do in our studio, we do with years of experience, knowledge, and considerations of our clients well being and what’s best for our client's hair needs and condition. We would never talk a client into service knowing that we would possibly further damage to the integrity of their hair. 

what to expect when going darker

If your hair is too light and you would like to correct the color by making it darker, we will first need to fill the hair with pigment according to the level of your natural color or desired color shade you would like to have.

What does this mean?
At the time your hair was lightened, pigments that make up your natural color: like copper, gold and red tones had to be removed to achieve the desired lightness and tonality. These pigment tones need to be inserted back into your hair, and once the hair is filled, we will then need to color the hair again with a demi-permanent color for the desired level and overall tone. The reasoning for a filler is to insert warm tones back into your hair, this helps to avoid the hair looking muddy when going from light to dark, acting as a middle shade.
Please also note, as colorist we can create a wide verity of beautiful shades and tones for you that may come close to looking like your natural color. Please, understand we can never give you back your true natural color.

how long does it take.?

It is almost impossible to put an exact time on color correction, as it all depends on how drastic a change is needed and how much damage has been done to your hair. In some cases, color correction can be performed in a few hours. However, in most cases, it takes as long as 8 to 12 hours resulting in a very long session, or multiple sessions spread out over a few weeks, to get your hair looking beautiful and healthy once again.

why trust an expert

A great way to save yourself time and money is only to trust an expert to color your hair. Often, to get a particular shade, it will require multiple steps of different hair colors, and it is impossible to know exactly what to do without the help of a hair coloring expert.
Working with Chemicals in hair color and bleach is a science and can be very tricky to work with correctly and can result in damage to the hair if not done by a professional. Avoid having to eventually get a color correction by throwing away the boxes of hair dye at your house and visit a professional stylist.
