Hair colouring: what is a colour diagnosis?

That's it - you've decided to get your hair coloured! But before putting your hair in your colourist's hands, you need a colour diagnosis. We take a closer look at this essential stage which plays a key part in determining the success of your new look.

A hair assessment made by your hairdresser

A colour diagnosis is a discussion with your colourist who will assess your hair to review its condition. They will take a look at your base colour, focusing on your natural roots if your hair has already been coloured, to determine its original colour. They may also take note of the proportion of grey hairs you have (if any). Next, they will assess the lengths and will ask you if you have had any processing carried out in recent months (bleaching, highlights etc...). Finally, they will check to see if your hair is damaged or porous. Then it is your turn to explain the kind of look you wish to go for.

A key step when choosing your colouring treatment

Do you wish to go for a radical change, such as going from blond to brunette? Do you simply wish to conceal any grey hairs or are you looking to lighten your hair in a natural way? Your hairdresser can steer you towards the perfect shade to enhance your complexion and your eye colour, whilst sticking as closely as possible to your desired result. They will suggest possible techniques to obtain the look you want, depending on your hair's condition. For example, if your locks are too brittle, you should not opt for bleaching. They will then clearly explain your options and will advise you which solution is best suited to you. Overall, a colour diagnosis is a great way to avoid disappointment when leaving the salon!
