You will require a simple skin patch test at least 48 hours before your hair colour.  Either pop into your local salon for a quick test or ask us about our home test. You can find out more about our skin test policy and home patch test here.

If you have experienced a hair colour disaster elsewhere, you'll be pleased to learn that we are colour correction experts.  Find out more here.

We highly recommend you come in for a free one to one consultation with one of our experts at our salon in  Tunbridge Wells.  Your GREAT hairdressing stylist will explain the hair colouring process and advise you on the best way to proceed, taking into account the health of your hair and the look you want to achieve.

Hair Colour That's Kind To Your Hair

Ammonia and PPD free hair hair colour is an innovative permanent dye without ammonia or paphenilenediamine (PPD). It was created to supply salons and customers with a very safe product which is gentle on the skin and hair structure while also delivering great colour and shine.

At GREAT hairdressing we use the high performance Pure Energy MC2 colour range which is available in more than 80 shades.  It lifts colour by up to four tones and completely covers grey and white hair.

Highlights and Lowlights at GREAT hairdressing

Highlights and lowlights are a very popular colour application process for creating a multi-dimensional look.  Strips of foil in a variety of lengths and widths are applied precisely and accurately to the hair. You can opt for full head highlights – which is great for anyone who regularly wears their hair in an upstyle as it ensures an even hair colour all over – or half head highlights.  A tint with scattered foils is an option which gives results of a more subtle highlighted or lowlighted colour.

A full head of permanent colour can be applied using the full range of hair colours providing an all over permanent colour which is ideal for covering grey hairs.

Semi-permanent colours are an ideal option to introduce colour to your hair.  An all over application can subtly blend a percentage of white hair whilst adding tone.

Fashion Hair Colour - Ombre, Balayage & Pastels

Ombre and balayage hair colour techniques have become increasingly popular and remain on-trend looks for fashion-forward men and women.  We can create beautiful ombre hair colours using different tones so that your hair is darker at the roots and graduates to a lighter shade - or even a fashion shade - towards the ends.  We can also add flashes of colour to your hair - perhaps through your fringe for an edgy cool look.  Whatever your desire, talk to your GREAT hairdressing colourist about your ideas.
