in need of a fix.?

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

If so, it is important 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 be in need of color correction by James Mac Studio.

below are 7 things we think you need to know before your color service

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 can be done 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 is that when hair gets lightened, color is actually taken out of the hair, not put into the hair. 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 essential to protect your hair.

Which is why at James Mac Studio we always 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 has been overly processed. Olaplex has been an amazing 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 over several visits.

 Individual goals need to be realistic, James Mac will take the time to understand your future hair goal. However, the well being of your hair comes first, because the overall integrity of the hair is always taken into consideration at James Mac Studio.

what to expect when going darker

If your hair is too light and you would like to correct the color by making it darker, your hair will need to be filled. This means that pigment will need to be inserted back into your hair, and once the hair is filled it will need to be colored at least one more time (sometimes more than once) to get the hair color you desire. The reasoning for a filler is to insert warm tones back into the hair, this helps to avoid the hair looking muddy when going from light to dark, acting as a middle shade.

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 inflicted upon the hair. In some cases, color correction can be fixed in a few hours. However, in most cases, it will take either one 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 to only trust an expert to color your hair. Oftentimes, in order to get a certain 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.

As long as your willing to continue to purchase Step No.3 regularly, we will continue to add Olaplex to your color service, on us.

Why is Olaplex so important for you to continue at home.?

Due to bonds being continuously broken within the hair through thermal styling, mechanical styling at home, the integrity, strength, shine, and softness will dissipate in a few weeks to a month depending on how the hair is treated. The No. 3 Hair Perfector will maintain strength, structure, integrity, softness and shine leading up to your next color service at our studio.
