A salon colorist is a professional, someone you can trust to independently assess what's right for you. With at-home color you have to put your trust in a box that doesn't know what processes your hair has been through over time. Nick Arrojo - ARROJO, NYC
You wouldn't do your own dental work or give yourself a tattoo, so why would you think it's okay to do your own hair color? John C. Simpson - Lewis Salon, Pittsburgh, PA
You will end up spending so much more than just what you paid for that "box" color - you will easily spend ten times more to have it corrected by a professional. Jesse Marcks - Hair Excellence Sun Prairie, WI
Don't believe what you see on TV, celebrities don't get color from a box. The majority of corrective color we do in the salon is correcting home hair color disasters. Tiffany Conway - CoCo Cheveux Portland, ME
It's unpredictable! A professional colorist knows how to assess the other factors - starting level, grey coverage, texture etc. It's like an address with no directions; how can get to a destination if you don't know where you're starting? Deborah Gavin - Fresh Studio, Philadelphia PA
People think nothing of spending money on clothing or accessories they rarely wear why wouldn't you put your hair as a priority as you wear it every day? Marie Ferro - Marie's Hair Studio, Malibu
You can't talk to a box but you can talk to a professional. Where else do you get advice and beauty at one place and for one price? Rona O'Connor - Lukaro, Beverly Hills
Too often, color done at home can jeopardize the integrity of your hair, leaving it dry and with a undesired end result... and besides that... who doesn't love a little attention from their hairdresser.
Jeff Taylor - Jenniffer & Co. Salon & Spa South, Mentor OH
With a creative eye, knowledge and experience, a professional can create consistent and brilliant color results – a box has no eye, no knowledge, and no experience; it's a dump and hope approach. James Edick – ARROJO, NYC
Overlapping applications create damage and lackluster hair. A professional colorist knows how to apply so the end result is always even and can create signature looks to suit the individual. Rebecca Heile – Fresh Studio, Philadelphia, PA
