What are BODYBUILDER Bonds?


Unlike regular extensions, BodyBuilder bonds works with the current length of your hair to add thickness and volume to your ends without damaging or thinning your hair. This works with a special installation method of keratin bonds that is more comfortable to wear and easier on your hair. We add light-weight strands to large sections of hair located at your nape and sides of your head for comfort and to lessen the stress on your natural hair. If you want thicker hair without the headaches of traditional keratin bond extensions, BODYBUILDER bonds is your answer.

Coloring

When should I book roots?


If your roots look like this, NOW! If you are darkening or covering grey hair with a solid color (NOT BLEACH OR HIGHLIGHTS) than you would book roots. If you do not want to put a solid color and wish to have your roots done in highlight form, then you would book highlights. If you are dark and wish to change your base color and add highlights, then you would book roots + highlights. If you are over 50% grey and wish to get highlights - but also cover the rest of your grey hair - then booking root + highlights is also your best option.




What is a Root Retouch?


This service is simply to color a regrowth from 1-2 inches off the scalp. If you wish to lighten your regrowth a solid color but have more than a 2 inch root, you will have to book half a head or a full head of highlights. If you wish to darken your regrowth and it’s longer than the metropolitan highway you will need to book a global color.




What is Roots Retouch Platinum Blond?


You channeled your inner gwen stefani and now you look like 8 mile. You need to bleach out those roots so it matches the rest of that fabulous platinum blond. Keep in mind that if your roots are longer than 1 inch you will need to book a full head of highlights because heat only travels so far...Orange is for halloween.




What is a Toner and why do I need it?


If you’re gonna tone your abs, you better be toning that blonde. Pollution, straighteners, and even water can turn hair yellow or brassy. When we tone we prep your hair first by clarifying it and removing all the impurities. Then we add the toner to rebalance the color.
