Whether you are brand new to color services or an OG, it’s essential to consult with your stylist prior to your appointment to ensure excellence.
[salon]718 offers a complimentary consultation service for clients to get to know their stylists, share inspirational images, and discuss the execution of the perfect color. Here are some ideas to keep in mind while walking into a color consultation at [salon]718.
- The maintenance of my desired color
- The integrity of my hair
- Whether I want my hair to whisper, talk, or SCREAM
Understanding the maintenance of your desired color will not only make it easier to schedule your services but also help you budget correctly. If coming in every month for a double process service does not agree with your monthly finances than this should be communicated with your stylist before performing the service. That way you’re able to agree on maybe a balayage service that requires less frequent salon visits.
We know the overall health of your hair is very important to you, it’s important to us as well! It’s also a crucial part of having a consultation prior to your appointment so stylists can evaluate your hair to ensure the services you desire is achievable without compromising your hair. The products you use at home will have an impact on the condition of your hair as well as the future of your color. During your consultation, your stylist will recommend the best products from our Kerastase and Pureology line to use during your visit and to take home with you. If you’d like to learn more about our Loreal product lines, feel free to call any of our locations and check out our previous blog posts.
From a subtle face-framing highlight to a platinum card, [salon]718 stylists have you covered. If you’re unsure of the impact you want your hair to have on the world bringing inspirational photos to your consultation will give your stylist a better idea of your desired look.

Considering all these ideas followed by the knowledge of color services, [salon]718 offers its clients the best consultation possible. For clients that are transitioning from at-home color services (EEEP box dyes!) a color consultation is a must. Upon your discussion, your stylist may recommend a color correction service. What’s a color correction you may ask?
A color correction service cancels out and neutralizes uneven pigments in the hair. This service is a process and may take multiple salon visits to achieve your desired color. If you believe this is the case for your color service or have any further questions our color director and color correction specialist, Christine is available to book for color consultations at our Fort Greene (Dekalb) location.
