There is no difference between a trim and a haircut/dry cut. Usually when a client is asked if they need a haircut with their color, some clients will respond “no, I just need a trim”. We know you hate to hear this, but a “trim” that removes one quarter inch takes just as long as a haircut that removes ten inches.
Sometimes it takes longer with a trim because of the precision involved in cutting a tiny amount all around. With a dry haircut a lot of times some flat ironing will be required for precision, thus taking the same time.
Bang trims are different. Bang trims really do take just a few minutes and are complementary after your haircut.
As long as you use high quality products (shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids) specifically recommended by a professional, your hair color should last from 4 to 8 weeks. That’s a big range, but the variance has to do with your tolerance for fading, how often you wash your hair, how hot the water is and how much you’re in the sun.
Water is the main culprit, but if you use inexpensive shampoos with detergents, your hair color will simply not last as long. A cheap non-color safe shampoo can strip red in one washing. You may think we’re saying that in order to get you to buy the better stuff here, but the higher detergent drugstore type shampoos will truly strip your color quickly.
Also, conditioners with a high paraffin content will bind to your color and make it wash out more quickly.
This also goes hand in hand with how long your color will last. If you have consistently been the same solid hair color (red or brunette) for a longer period the pigment in your hair will stay more prominent and you will not be required to get full color pulled through as often, just a root retouch for the new growth.
Typical retouches are anywhere from 4-6 weeks, especially for gray clients. The longer you wait in between color appointments the harder it is to maintain a consistent result, so it is always recommended to ask your stylist what is best for you.
It’s difficult in the social world we live in now a days to keep up with all the terms floating around, it feels like there is a new one every other day. Highlights, baby lights, balayage, hair paintings, ombré, foilayage, and the list goes on.
To simplify things a little bit you should know that each one of these is a technique, and every stylist has their own technique. In my opinion all of these are still a version of highlights. They are just applied a little differently. Sometimes I can do a mixture of all of these “techniques” on just one persons hair. All of these applications can be so different from person — person.
Our suggestion is to bring in an inspiration picture and we will decide together what will be best for your hair.
We at Ember Revival provide exceptional color correction services that emphasize restoring the health of damaged hair. What does it mean to need a corrective color? Merely that something has been done to your hair that is in need of a correction. This makes it necessary to involve a colorist who is truly at the top of the profession. When your hair needs corrective coloring, you want somebody that’s seen it all, knows how to fix it, and isn’t going to make it worse. You also need someone that’s going to be absolutely honest about the results you can expect.
Like all of our services, corrective coloring is priced according to time. It typically takes longer because there are more steps involved, but some corrective color services can be done in the same amount of time as a normal color. If you are a first time client and think you need a corrective color its best to come in for a complimentary consultation so we can set you up for the correct appointment time.
There is a range for color pricing because there are many variables that affect our cost to perform the service. One variable is time. Longer, thicker hair takes longer. It takes more individual foils, more brush strokes and more of everything else, which adds to the time. Special effects and precise pattern placements can also take longer.
Additionally, the more hair you have, the more product we use on it, and hair color is the most expensive cost we incur. Your stylist may adjust the price up or down to account for the unique requirements of your hair. Upon request, a quote for your color service will be provided.
At Ember Revival we pride our selves in using only the best products for our clients. We believe color should leave your hair feeling as good, if not better then before you ever colored it.
This is the reason why we choose to use organic, low-tox, and ammonia free color inside our salon. Every product inside our salon has natural fragrance derived from essential oils and always chemical free- rating clean on the think dirty app.
We believe that the health of your hair comes from the inside out so all of our products target the specific needs of each individual, your stylist will always recommend what they think is best for your hair needs.
To us holistic hair care is a mind, body, soul approach. We educate you on how the outer body is a reflection of what we nourish it with internally and also the ways we replenish our soul/ energy. With these beliefs we make sure that the moment you step into the salon you are taken care of in every way.
Through your appointment we will have relaxing essential oils diffusing, calming music playing, and nourishing drinks/ snacks will be offered. It is your time to be pampered, unwind, release stress, and talk about everything that replenishes your soul.
The energy of our salon is key to creating the best experience for you so conversations will always end in an uplifting manner so you leave feeling recharged - The embers will be revived within you and the moment you step back into the world you will be the fire, ready to take on anything thrown your way.
Extension cost, just like hair color has many variables. The first 2 are the hair costs itself and the time to install the hair. Length and volume are the biggest indicators on what the cost of hair will be and then how many hours it will take to install the hair.
Once the initial hair has been bought the only continuing cost will be maintenance. Extensions should be maintained every 6-8 weeks. A maintenance appointment will be determined by your stylist after your initial install. Color can also be maintained with extensions and would be an additional cost on top of your extensions maintenance (not everyone needs color maintenance — this will be discussed with your stylist).
At Ember Revival we continue our education constantly. We have extensive hours (plus cost) invested into our extension education. We have learned every method i-tips (beads), U-tips (bonds), weft (sewn, beaded, and hand tied), tape ins and so on. Our favorite method continues to be the beaded i-tips. We have found these are the most customizable to match color, volume, and length. They move the most freely with your natural hair.
Everyone’s hair is unique so on occasion we may find another method would be best for you, if we feel we can’t achieve your desired results we will always be honest through communication. This is the reason why an initial (free) consultation is very important.
We have a free guide that we will send to all of our extension clients once your extensions have been installed.
This guide will walk you through your entire at home maintenance. We recommend to book a 6-8 weeks appointment for a move up. (This will be determined by your stylist after your first install). If you also get color regularly we can piggy back your appointments to do color at the same time we do your move up. Every 3rd - 4th appointment we will do a full head instead of a move up (if needed). This way we can do a full head of color at this time with all your extensions pulled out.
Not everyone requires a full head color in between. This will be determined based on what kind of color maintenance you need. Sometimes we will break it up into 2 separate appointment days — 1 to focus on a full head of color 2nd to focus on a full head extensions re-install.
Communication is something we cherish. Every appointment will be started with a consultation to make sure all your expectations are meant.
From there we will create a plan of action for your color, hair cut, or treatment you will be receiving that day. We will offer you refreshments — snacks to make sure you are nourished while in our chairs.
We will create the hair of your dreams and finish you off with a style to walk away feeling inspired + beautiful.
We value our time with every guest and we have a tight schedule to with hold during our day.
If you happen to be running late it is very important to make your stylist aware. If you are going to be more then 15 minutes behind we may need to reschedule for a later day/time depending on the services you will be receiving.
We do our best to maintain a schedule that runs on time throughout the day but unexpected delays come up and things happen.
If we believe we are going to be more than 15 minutes behind schedule we will always be sure to reach out and make you aware of this.
We understand that life happens and unexpected things might come up. Our time is as valuable as yours, so we ask that you kindly give us a minimum of a 48 hour notice if you need to cancel/ reschedule your appointment.
Anything less this we likely wont be able to fill your spot with someone else. That is time plus money lost for out stylist. Cancellations are recorded to make sure this doesn’t become a reoccurring thing.
If you give us less then 24 hour notice of your cancellation than 50% of your appointment will be charged. If you no call no show 100% of your appointment will be charged and must be paid before being able to schedule any further services.
