What’s A Toner Anyway

A toner is used in typically used in two ways on blonded level hair.

1. To counteract unwanted colour. For example if your hair is brassy, we can neutralise it.

2. To change the shade of the blonde in a playful way, we might want to put pastel tones in, or a soft gold or beige. There are way too many options to write down here but you get the idea.

Typically I try not to use a toner to counteract unwanted colour. Toners typically only last between 1 and 15 washes, depending what product you have used and more importantly, the condition of your hair.

I prefer to try and get the tone right without the toner, so your colour will look good between visits. Then when we put the toner on at the end, its makes it look AMAZING!

In the salon I offer a range of toning options.

We start out by doing one on your colour visit to start you off looking the best you can. Then ideally you take a home toning option, to keep it looking great as the salon toner slowly eases out of your hair.

If you prefer to come back in between visits, we can re-tone for you. I even have some incredible treatments in the salon now, where I can customise the tone within the treatment service.

If you have any toning questions please just ask me.

Educating you guys is what I love to do!
