Balayage Colour Correction

Balayage is the most popular hair colour in our West End hairdressers and it's clear to see why. There are various balayage effects but the most popular tend to be blonde balayage where lighter tones are added throughout the hair to create a lighter sun-kissed look. This look is very difficult to achieve yourself at home. Often, a home balayage colour can turn out patchy and the hair is often brassy with unwanted yellow or gold tones. 

Gusto Hairdressing specialises in balayage hair colouring, face frame colour and colour melting and our hair colour experts will hand paint subtle, highlights throughout your hair exactly where you want them.

Hair Colour Correction Dark to Light

"How can I lighten my hair that I've dyed too dark?" is a common question we hear at Gusto. Changing a dark brown or black hair colour to a lighter blonde shade is not quite as simple as applying a new colour over your existing one. If you have dyed your hair and it has turned out too dark, or you have incorrect tones in the hair, it’s important to understand that this can take time and you may need to invest in further colour appointments and professional products to reach your desired shade. We understand the temptation to colour your hair at home, but trust us when we say it’s not worth the risk!

Black Box Dye Colour Correction 

As we've said, hair colour corrections take work, patience and skill. If you have used a box dye for years at home chances are you have pulled the colour through to the ends every time. This will inevitably have resulted in a build-up of colour in the mid-lengths and ends of the hair or colour banding. Your stylist may suggest a hair cut to remove as much of the built-up colour as possible, they may also recommend you have a course of in-salon treatments such as Olaplex to help restore lost moisture in the hair.

Rest assured they will discuss each step in detail during your consultation.
