With demi permanent hair colours lasting up to 25 washes and semi permanent hair colours washing out after 8 washes, choose your level of hair colour commitment.

Blonde hair colour

Schwarzkopf Professional have been perfecting hair colour for over 100 years and one particular shade that has astounding results is blonde hair colour. Using Igora Vario Blond range from Scwarzkopf, create the perfect shade of blonde hair thanks to this unique and patented formula that delivers ultra cool blonde hair colours with extra conditioning care. Whether you choose an all over colour or highlights, the Igora Vario Blond range of blonde hair colour will achieve stunning results.

Highlights and lowlights

Rather than seeking all over coverage in one particular hair colour, you can choose to add depth and drama with highlights and lowlights. Working with your professional hairdresser, we will select the desired colours and position throughout the head depending on the desired hair colour effect.
You can choose to have foil highlights or lowlights placed as follows;
Partial foils – up to 8 foils are placed in the hair in either one concentrated area or interspersed for a subtle effect. Partial foils are popular for those wanting flashes of colour in one particular area or for men.
Half head foils – placing foils on only half the head area can deliver some fantastic hair colour results. This is particularly beneficial for clients wanting to lift their own natural hair colour a few shades, creating a multi tonal effect with the natural hair colour underneath.
Full head foils – the hair colour possibilities are endless with full head foils. Placing foils throughout the head of hair has the most dramatic hair colour results. If you wear your hair up often and want to avoid the two tone look that is created by half head foils, then full head coverage is definitely for you.

Hair colour correction

So, you gave in to the temptation and coloured your hair at home, but it’s gone wrong. What do you do?! The golden rule of hair dye disasters is to firstly remain calm. You must seek professional hairdressing help immediately and avoid all thoughts of simply colouring over the current hair colour in order to ‘fix’ the hair colour problem. As no two areas of your hair will be the same, a hair colour problem will require a thorough analysis from a hair colourist at Simon John to prescribe the perfect solution. We understand that times of hair dye disasters can be extremely upsetting and stressful. At Simon John Hair, we are well equipped and experienced to restore your hair colour and avert and further potential hair colour problems. Attempting to colour your hair yourself may seem more cost effective but in reality, when hair colour goes wrong the cost to restore your hair can mount up.
