We really have seen every hair colour issue under the sun and are renowned for our ability to repair hair colour disasters.  All you need to do is follow these simple steps to get your hair back to beautiful once more.

Please do not be tempted to put another colour on top of your box dyed hair.  It will only make things worse. Instead, contact us as soon as possible to book in for a colour correction consultation.  We will assess the condition of your hair, work out a plan to repair the damage and restore your colour, explain the process, timescale and price.  We understand that having a hair colour problem can be distressing so we will do all we can to get you in ASAP.

Depending on the extent of your hair damage, we may suggest more than one appointment to restore your hair to its former glory.  Our aim is to maintain the health and integrity of your hair so it looks and feels as good as possible.


Box Dye vs Professional Hair Colour

What's the difference between box dye and professional hair colour? We're glad you asked!

If we're completely honest, if you have virgin hair with absolutely no grey then you might get away with adding a box dye colour to your hair.  However, you also risk ending up with a flat, lifeless one-dimensional colout - and who knows how it will look once your roots grow through and you need to touch up the root regrowth.

When you book into our Cheltenham hairdressers, you are putting your hair into the hands of experts who have trained for years to understand the science behind hair colouring.  And it really is a science.  We can assess the right hair colours for your skin tone to ensure your new shade lights up your face rather than having a draining effect. 

We can also blend to give you a more natural look, or boost the colour to give vibrant, dynamic hair shades if that is your desire. 

If your hair has been previously coloured, there is also an art to blending that root regrowth for a seamless hair colour look.   


Common Hair Colour Problems

Quite a few things can go wrong when you colour your hair at home so let's look at the most common issues. A common hair colour problem is patchy hair colour where colour has been unevenly applied or has 'taken' too quickly on dry, over-processed hair. In this situation, we will assess individual sections and strands of your hair to work out a plan to ensure you have beautiful, even hair colour.

Another common hair colour issue is hair that turns out the wrong colour, believe us when we say it rarely turns out as it appears on the side of the box! Sometimes we see clients who have tried to go from brunette to blonde without pre-lightening their hair, leaving your hair an unnatural orange shade. Pool chlorine can even cause your hair to have an unsightly green tinge.

Finally, hair that is over-processed and over-bleached can end up fluffy, frizzy, dry and prone to breakage. The health of your hair is incredibly important to us so the hair colour correction experts at Martin and Phelps Hair Salon in Cheltenham will always do what is best for your hair.  We may suggest a moisturising hair treatment to give your locks a chance to recover.
