Colouring

Quality colours from highly trained stylists

We have chosen to use both Wella and Paul Mitchell professional hair colours in our salon. Wella are a longstanding stalwart in the industry and Paul Mitchell are our choice for vegan, low ammonia colouring. Our stylists are often in London for courses to learn the best techniques to get you the look you want without compromising the condition of your hair.

Olivia has cut and coloured my hair for years now and I’m always delighted with the end results. She’s professional and yet friendly. It’s always a joy to have an afternoon treatment at the Hair Gallery.

Our services range from the latest balayage and root melt techniques, platinum blondes to sunkissed looks, golden hues to rich coppers and reds, multitone lights, bright neon colours to soft pastels and not forgetting traditional highlights and full tints! All these colours can be permanent, semi permanent or temporary. We always use a post colour conditioner for every colour service, free of charge.

Blondes and fragile hair

For blondes and fragile hair which fade easily, we highly recommend our two step Olaplex treatment.

Step one is added to the colour. Step two is applied after the colour has been rinsed, prior to shampooing.

For dry, fuzzy hair we recommend an intensive post-conditioning treatment. This will restore moisture and proteins lost from the cuticle (outside) of the hair during the chemical service.

Balayage

This is a freehand painting technique which creates a very soft colour at the root, becoming more intense towards the ends.

It’s important to understand that most balayages require a toner and/or root melt and we highly recommend Olaplex treatments with this technique in order to maintain the condition and colour of the hair.

Home hair dyes

Many clients come to us having dyed their hair at home for several years. We do our utmost to manage expectations of what can be achieved if the aim is to lighten the hair. In many cases getting to the desired colour may take two or three, sometimes more appointments. The condition of your hair is integral to great looking colour.

A consultation prior to your colour appointment is essential, along with a skin test and strand test.

20% off colour services

We offer 20% off your colour service if booked with a technical assistant. These are our salon assistants who are qualified in applying colours. Your stylist will direct the assistant in colour choice. This service applies to tints and semi permanent services only. Please ask for a technical assistant when booking.

Book your colour

Because of the many different scenarios involved in hair colouring, we would prefer you to call the salon directly to book. This allows us to assess the length of appointment you would need. In some cases, we would require you to book in for a consultation, in order for us to give you the best results possible.

Please bring with you at least three pictures of the hair colour you are looking to achieve. It is easier if you save these pictures in your phone to find them easily or bring them printed on paper.

We will need a full history of any chemical treatments to your hair going back three years for shoulder length hair, four to five years for longer hair.

Skin tests and strand tests

Every client new to colouring or to our salon will require a skin test which needs to be carried out no later than 48 hours prior to any appointment. A strand test will also be required to check the integrity of the hair for colouring. Only once the strand test and skin test are clear can we then make the appointment for your colour. Please arrive to your consultation appointment with clean hair.

You can book consultations and skin tests (essential for new clients) online.

Root coverups – sprays and powders

Please come to colour appointments without root coverup on your hair. These products may contain ingredients which will react badly with our hair dyes.

Gift vouchers are available for this service.

I have been coming to Hair Gallery for over 10 years and it is the best salon I have visited. The standard of hairdressing is very high. The staff are friendly and welcoming. It’s an extremely comfortable environment. I strongly recommend.
