Why Should I See A Colour Specialist?

Three great reasons why you should choose a colour specialist.

Reason #1 – Condition

For challenging colour needs seeing a colour specialist is a great option. When you are going for a big change, or you’re dealing with a previous colour that went wrong, keeping your hair in the best condition possible takes a skilled professional.

Reason #2 – Cutting edge technique

Poppy is a training salon. Our specialists are dedicated to ongoing training and are up to date with the newest colour trends and techniques. Colour masters offer exceptional services for guests and pass that training on to our new generation of stylist/technicians.

Reason #3 – Getting the right undertone is an art form

People are either warm or cool toned. The shade of blonde you choose for your hair depends on the underlying tones in your skin. A good technician can pick your tone and match it. Read our article about skin tones and going blonde here.
