Best Hair Color Correction NYC. We are L’Oreal Professionnel Best Hair Color Correction Salons NYC!
A “color correction” is meant to fix a color service that had undesirable results. Most people can understand that a color correction is needed for brassy, orange highlights, or at-home color that came out differently than desired (picture green or jet black hair instead of medium brown). Fine Artistik Salon is the Best Hair Color Correction NYC salon! Something that may seem like an easy fix or regular color service, though, isn’t always so cut-and-dry.
Some color corrections can be simple, like doing a toner to cut out gold, but others can be a triple-process to lift dark color out. The latter is where time and cost can drastically increase.
Could the dark brown color you’ve been getting professionally colored for 6 years need to be “corrected” to get cool blonde highlights? Absolutely! Even though you’ve been getting desired results from your stylist for a long time, you need to remember that changing things up may be more difficult than you think.
In the salon environment, stylists see a color correction as when a guest wants to take previously colored hair at least 2 levels lighter or take previously colored or virgin hair at least 2 levels darker.
SO, WHAT HAPPENS DURING A COLOR CORRECTION? When hair gets lightened, color is actually being taken out, not put in. Unfortunately, other things come out along with the color, such as protein, leaving the hair damaged. If it needs to be lightened again and again, that’s more structural elements that are being removed, too. To minimize the damage in the hair and to maintain its integrity we offer the OLAPLEX treatment and L’Oreal Professionnel Smartbond treatment.
Many times, overzealous stylists think they can do a color correction in one sitting and end up damaging the hair structurally so much that the only fix is a substantial haircut. One way to protect your hair from a ton of damage is to spread out the service over a couple weeks. While you won’t leave the salon with the desired result in one day, you will leave with your hair still on your head.

If a color turned out too light or the guest wants to go a lot darker, the hair will need to be “filled.” “Filling” means depositing pigment back into the hair. This isn’t as simple as picking a color and putting it on; that’s how you end up with muddy or green colors. Once the hair is filled, it will need to be colored at least once more to get a desired shade.
Because a color correction can be more involved, the cost will most times be substantially higher. Some stylists charge $100-$200 per hour for a service that could take 5 hours to complete. That cost reflects the amount of color used and the amount of time your stylist needs to work on your hair.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO WARN YOUR STYLIST ABOUT A POTENTIAL COLOR CORRECTION? First, if you are a blonde and have multiple shades and toner in your hair that are brassy (usually that happens if you keep switching between hair colorists or if the bleach wasn’t left long enough). Don’t assume that a full head of highlights will fix that. Certain blonde shades are extremely difficult to achieve or correct. Brunettes & Red heads are a bit easier but definitely not easy! Any color is a challenge.
While most color corrections aren’t that drastic, your stylist does need to know what to expect when a guest sits in his or her chair. If you scheduled a one-color process and it needs to be a four-process correction, the 2-hour appointment just doubled in length. Not only that, but the next two hours of her day just had to be rescheduled on very short notice.
A good idea for anyone contemplating a drastic change (see: what a stylist sees as a correction), or anyone who had an unfortunate experience with color, is to contact their stylist before they schedule an appointment. He or she may want to see a picture of what you have color-wise, and what you want. An in-salon consultation may also be needed before your stylist will schedule the service.
