If you’ve seen us post about a Color Revamp or perhaps even read our previous blog post breaking down all the deets here, you may be asking yourself if YOU need a Color Revamp. First up, if you missed our previous post you’re probably wondering what a Revamp even is. If you haven’t heard the term before in any other salons it’s probably because Candice came up with it when she felt like “Corrective Color” didn’t quite feel right for what we offer.
Corrective color suggests that there’s something “wrong” with the current color. What we’ve found most often is that when women come in for hair extensions there’s nothing “wrong” with their color, but they are also not completely in love with it either. We’re big believers that if you’re going to invest time, energy, and money to extend and volumize what you already have then it should be a color and texture that you absolutely love. You can’t extend or enhance anything that’s just…meh.
With that thought process in mind, the concept of a Revamp seemed the perfect solution. At Garnish we offer two different types of Revamp—a Mini and a Full. Both services are priced at a flat rate and encompass absolutely everything needed to get you from your current color to the color of your dreams.
First up, let’s talk Minis.
The Mini Revamp includes everything you need to take your color into a new direction without completely changing into a different color. For example, if you’re already blonde, but you’re a golden blonde that tends to turn brassy and your goal is an ashier blonde—you’re the perfect candidate for a mini. Oftentimes, particularly for blondes, a highlight/lowlight just isn’t quite enough to achieve your ideal look.
The tone is super important as well as the perfect blend with your hair extensions. We opted to create a flat rate for this service—$450—because a lot of different steps need to be taken and the individual pricing can add up. With a set price, you know up front exactly what you will be investing in this new color. Revamps can include color, highlights, lowlights, toning between foils, toning after, multiple toners, clear gloss, olaplex, root smudges, and more.
If your hair goals are a little more complex such as going from blonde to brunette or vice versa, you are probably in need of a Full Color Revamp. A full revamp is essentially any transformation that requires every strand to be colored in some way. The process can be pretty involved and you are usually spending most of your day (around 5 to 6 hours) in the salon. We also have a flat rate for this service—$600—because so many intricate steps need to take place to achieve your color the right way.
Color Revamps are such a vital aspect of our transformation process because we want to ensure you LOVE your color before extending it. We would always rather take the time up front to perfect your color before you invest into adding hair extensions. It’s even something of a superpower for our studio—how deeply we value the process of perfecting your hair prior to the actual extensions.
We consider everything from the color and texture to how it will bring out your eye color and complement your skin tone.
Finally, one of the most important aspects of our Color Revamps is the end goal of achieving a lower maintenance color. What this means is that while the revamp itself is an investment up front, the look we are creating will allow your color maintenance to be significantly less.
We’re all about “lived in color,” and while it may take a little more to achieve that desired look, it will completely change the way you see color maintenance.
So if you’ve been considering hair extensions, but you’re just “okay” with your haircolor. Or if you just haven’t quite been able to achieve your color goals—A Color Revamp is probably for you. We discuss your color in detail as well as extensions during your consultation. The first step is filling out an application here.
