Full-head permanent colour FAQs

What is full-head permanent colour?

A full-head permanent colour is what might spring to mind when you think of hair colouring at its simplest, and involves colouring your full head of hair one colour. You can choose whether to go lighter or darker, though the process might be slightly different each way. If you want to change your base colour entirely, it’s always best to consult your stylist, as you could require a colour correction appointment to reach your perfect colour locks.

Full-head permanent colour vs. full-head highlights?

Full-head permanent colour is one shade that’s applied to your whole head of hair, while full-head highlights are also all over, but painted through to create contrast.

Can I get a full-head permanent colour service and highlights?

You can have both; highlights are applied to your head in foils, before the base colour is applied to your remaining hair. You might need several appointments to achieve your desired look and you’ll need to take extra care of your hair to prevent damage.

How often do I need to get my full-head permanent colour topped up?

Considering the growth of your roots, full-head colour can last up to eight weeks. We advise topping your roots up every four to eight weeks, while your lengths and ends can be regularly refreshed.
