What do I need to know?

Embarking on a semi-permanent colour journey requires more than flipping through a colour chart. It begins with a one-on-one consultation, a crucial step at Wisteria Avenue. Here, we consider a myriad of factors to ensure the chosen colour not only aligns with your desires but also works within your budget, ongoing maintenance and style.

Face Shape Magic

Your face shape is the canvas, and the right semi-permanent colour can accentuate your features. During the consultation, we assess your face shape, discussing shades that enhance your natural beauty and add a touch of intrigue.

Style Compatibility

Every hairstyle has its unique personality, and the right colour can amplify its impact. Whether you’re rocking a pixie cut, a sleek bob, or luscious curls, we tailor our colour recommendations to complement your chosen style, creating a cohesive and stunning look.

Maintenance Levels: Finding Your Comfort Zone

Semi-permanent colours offer a spectrum of maintenance levels. During the consultation, we delve into your lifestyle and routine, ensuring the selected colour aligns with your desired level of maintenance. Whether you’re a low-maintenance enthusiast or enjoy regular salon visits, we tailor our recommendations to suit your lifestyle.

Haircut Frequency and History

Understanding your preferred haircut frequency and your hair’s history is pivotal. If you’re a frequent visitor to the salon, we can choose colours that seamlessly integrate with your regular maintenance routine. Your hair’s history, including previous treatments and colours, guides us in selecting shades that work harmoniously with your current hair condition.

Introducing ‘Color Intensity’ by JOICO

Wisteria Avenue proudly uses ‘Color Intensity’ by JOICO, a range renowned for its vibrant, long-lasting colours. Whether you’re dreaming of bold blues, ravishing reds, or mystical purples, this collection offers where you won’t be short of choice!

What's the process?

These colour look amazing and it’s a game of patience. Don’t expect a quick turnaround. The process is a lengthy one however the results are amazing!

Permanent hair colours consist of a formula which require precision to tailor to your hair. Semi-permanent vibrant shades are very different and typically deposit straight onto the hair without any additional mixing so the skill is in the preparation and application.

Before any vibrant shades are applied to your hair, the hair needs to be pre-lightened. Usually this is to achieve the lightest and/or whitest shade possible to ensure that the Color Intensity shades applied have a clean canvas. Some of the Color Intensity shades don’t necessarily need it however it’s beneficial to lighten to the lightest shade for an improved overall colour result. The hair is toned for consistency, dried and then your desired colour is deposited and left to process.

Creative colour appointments are rarely the same as the next and vary considerably in both time, execution, delivery and cost. However if you are looking for something different, this is a great option and an no-brainer if you want to stand out from the crowd.
