Let’s clarify a single color or root touch up:
Single Process color means that a new color or toner is applied all over to create a new base color. This could be just touching up your roots to cover gray, or to lift your roots to match your ends. You can also add on, or pull any color through to the ends (an additional price as it takes more time and uses much more product to cover every hair strand). Single process color is the most common out of the two, and it’s wonderful for covering grays and adding shininess to dull hair. This can also be done with “Clear” to add shine and gloss to any existing hair color, Ask your stylist today.
Single process color could be done at the shampoo bowl, most commonly done when toning after a lightening service (which would be a double process) to get the perfect shade you and your stylist are trying to achieve, or it could be applied at the stylist’s chair or our color bar. This toning process is ideal for in between services to maintain a particular tone, eliminate brassiness, or to enhance a certain tone.
Double Process color is typically used when lightening hair by more than two shades. First, the hair is lightened or highlighted to remove natural or colored hair pigments, and then pigment is added into the hair to create the desired shade (toning). To avoid hair drama, leave this one to the pros.
