Frequently Asked Questions.

How long will my highlights last?

Even though our highlights are usually done with enlightener or permanent color, eventually they will start to grow out within 4 to 8 weeks, dependent on how fast your hair grows. Your stylist will recommend a time specific to you for scheduling your next highlight appointment.

How can I save money on my color?

We have a referral program in which you refer someone and you both receive $20 off your next service. You can also talk with your stylist about lower maintenance haircuts and colors.

What if I don't know what haircut will suit me?

Our hairstylists are trained to consider face shape, features, hair type, styling needs, etc. when cutting hair. They offer a thorough consultation to give you the best look for you and your lifestyle. We are happy to assist you in finding you a style and recommend an array of Aveda products on how to maintain/style.

How do I know if I need a conditioning treatment?

Conditioning treatments can scheduled with every service and are highly recommended by our stylists for any hair type, texture, and length. The best time to schedule one is when you are getting color or highlights.

Should I wash my hair before my appointment?

That depends on the service you have scheduled. If you are hoping for a special occasion style, refer to your stylist; though typically coming with clean, dry hair works best. For hair color and haircuts, washing your hair beforehand is usually unnecessary. 

If you are wanting a dry haircut, please come with clean, dry hair.
