Skin Testing Policy At Melanie Richard's

Please note: we are a colour responsible salon. A skin sensitivity test must be carried out at least 48 hours before any colour that will touch the scalp to protect you from a reaction to the colour. It can not be done more than 5 days before your hair colour appointment. 

The skin test will also need to be carried out again: Every 6 months, if it is more than 6 months since your last colour if you have had a tattoo, henna tattoo or permanent make-up since your last colour. Alternatively, there are Patch Test Kits that you can use at home for skin testing. These cost £5. Full details here

We will send an email reminder if it is more than 6 months since your last test with us a week before your appointment, please DO NOT ignore this very important reminder.

A common hair colour problem we see is prolonged use of box dyes resulting in too dark a shade or home bleaching that has unwanted orange tones, but rest assured we have seen all sorts of hair colour dilemas and will suggest the best course of action for you.

How Do I Get Rid Of Colour Banding In My Hair?

Colour banding is where the new hair colour you are applying to your roots, overlaps with the previous hair colour. This results in different depths and tones being seen in bands throughout the hair.

Don’t try fixing your hair colour problem at home, correcting hair colour is best left to the experts. The best corrective hair colourists at our Peterborough salon, recommend regular root touch ups to avoid this.

I’ve Had My Hair Bleached & It’s Turned Orange

Orange, brassy tones in the hair are often a result of hair not being lightened enough. Applying another hair colour over the top isn’t always the answer, it’s best left to the hair colour experts.

My Home Balayage Hair Dye Did Not Work

We specialise in balayage hair colouring and our hair colour experts will hand paint subtle, highlights throughout your hair exactly where you want them – something that you can not do yourself at home.

At-home balayage can sometimes result in a harsh band of colour and unwanted brassy tones in the hair. Balayage should result in graduated, dimensional, natural looking hair colour. Find out more about balayage & ombré haircolour services at Melanie Richard's Hair & Beauty Salon in Peterborough.
