Why you need an allergy test ?
To ensure that we can safely apply colour to your hair, we need to know if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients used in our colour formula.
Hair colourants contain many different kinds of chemicals that may cause an allergic reaction when in direct contact with the skin.
Is it essential?
Yes.The health and well being of our clients is a priority.
What if I already have colour, do I still need one?
If you have not had a colour service at our salon within the last six months then you will need to have an allergy test. Although you may never have had an adverse reaction before, the colour formulations can change over time and so can your skins sensitivity.
How does it work?
All you have to do is pop into the salon at least 48 hours before your colour appointment and a member of our team will complete an allergy test for you – it takes only 1 minute.
All you have to do is leave this colour sample on the skin for 1 hour. Rinse off and examine the skin area over the next 48 hours for any negative reactions like rashes, itching, swelling, discolouration and inflammation. If you notice any abnormal reactions, let us know.
There is no need to book an appointment for this, although it is sometimes good to book an initial consultation about your colour (especially if you’re new to the salon) and this allergy test can be done at the same time.
