Do you ever get a wild hair and decide it’s time for a new look? You get online or grab a hairstyle magazine and sort through photos at warp speed. Finally, you find the one. The right cut – the right color. It should even compliment your face shape. Now what do you do?
Carol Graham knows. She’s the owner of Carol’s Place in Claremore. It’s a comfortable, convenient spot off historic Route 66 where locals flock for great service and advice. Here are some of Carol's tips on changing your hair color.
1) Drastic changes may not be accomplished in one setting. Patience is key.
“If you have dark, brown or black hair and you want to go to a platinum blond or much lighter shade, we have to take a look at the condition and texture of your hair,” said Graham. “Our staff continually trains on new color and products and will work with you to make sure the new color won’t damage your hair.”
2) Don't get attached to creative color names.
This is important, as new color combinations are all the rage. Look on Facebook or other social media and you’ll see an array of color offering something for everyone. If you come across creative names for hair color like Blue Denim, Chocolate Raspberry Swirl or Coffee Blonde, these are just names that the original hair technician has given to describe the color. They aren’t the correct names of actual hair colors.
3) Bring a picture of the color you want to your consultation.
“We always tell people that if they are trying out a new color, to schedule about 30 more minutes to their hair appointment. This will insure we have enough time to choose colors, talk about the steps to begin the color process without damaging the hair.”
