Hair Colour - You Ask, We Answer!

If there's ever anything you want to know more about or are unsure about, you can always just ask any member of our friendly team and we will always be happy to answer.

Today's topic is hair colour! Our expert colour technicians at Combers Hairdressers in Somerset have answered some of your frequently asked questions relating to hair colour.

hair colour FAQs at Combers Hairdressers Taunton

Which Hair Colour Would Suit Me Best?

You've come to the right place if you're asking this question! At Combers Inside-Out Hairdressing Salon in Taunton, we provide comprehensive consultations to really get to know you inside out. Through this, we can find out what you truly want and recommend the right hair colour for you. 

What Is A Patch Test?

This is a very important question. If you're a new guest at Combers Hairdressers, or you haven't had your hair coloured by us in the past 6 months, you will need to have a patch test. A patch test is a quick and easy allergy test we are required to do at least 48 hours before a hair colouring appointment. We will dab a little dot of hair colour behind your ear and you will need to tell us whether you have any irritation in that area. Allergic reactions to our hair colour products are unlikely but your safety is always our main priority.

What Is Balayage?

Balayage is a trending hair colouring technique which involves the root of your hair being left darker whilst the mid-lengths to ends of your hair are lightened. Our expert colour technicians hand-paint these highlights throughout your hair for a subtly sun-kissed look. The most popular balayage colour among our clients is blonde balayage. However, we can create balayage in whatever hair colour you desire.

How Much Will My Hair Colour Service Cost?

The price you pay is based on skill and time and we'll always be open and honest about how much, how long and what to expect. During your consultation, we can provide a no obligation quote on how much your hair colour service is going to cost. At Combers Hairdressing Salon in Somerset, we will always be transparent about costs.

Can I Get Blonde Hair In One Appointment?

At Combers Inside-Out Hairdressing, we pride ourselves in being open and honest with our guests. During your consultation, we will discuss the hair colouring process and how long it will take to achieve the desired hair colour. If our experts think that the process will take too long, we will recommend an even better option for you!

For blonde hair transformations, how many appointments it will take will depend on how dark your base hair colour is. If you already have light hair, then yes, we will be able to achieve blonde hair colour in one appointment. However, if you have darker hair then it will likely take more than one appointment. We will keep you informed every step of the way so that you know what's happening and how long things will take - that's a promise.

Do You Offer Olaplex?

Yes! At Combers Hairdressers in Taunton, we offer a range of hair treatments - including Olaplex. If you would like a hair treatment, please let our hair specialists know. We will assess your hair's problems and needs and will then recommend the right hair treatment for you. Although this may be an Olaplex treatment, we may also recommend other hair treatments more suited to your needs.

Do You Offer Bright Hair Colours?

We offer every hair colour under the rainbow! From brilliantly bright hair colours to more subtle pastel hair colours, we offer a wide range of fun fashion hair colours at Combers Hair Salon. Of course, we also have a vast variety of natural hair shades for you to choose from as well. If you're uncertain what hair colour you would like, our hair colour experts love to recommend the perfect hair colours to suit you.
