Color Correction Hair Solutions

Unsatisfied with your recent color service? Whether you tried to use at-home dyes or visited a stylist who just didn’t get it right, so much can go wrong along the way. The good news is that there is a way to bounce back with color correction hair.

What Is Color Correction Hair?

There’s no single answer to this question because the exact approach depends on the problem and the individual client’s hair. Still, in most cases, you can define color correction as techniques that fix hair when color leads to a result that’s uneven, too light, too dark, too warm or too cool.

Color correction hair may also be used to address damage without stripping away tone or shade along the way. This is a common need for people who lighten often or use at-home drugstore products, which can be too strong or too weak.

The Correction Process

A color correction hair solution helps you recover from a bad hair job without risking the health of your strands along the way. This process is much different, and much more complex, than an all-over color service or even the most complex balayage.

Instead of creating an entirely new look, the stylist works with you to identify what it was you were trying to achieve in the first place. Then, they determine whether or not it’s still possible to achieve and lay out a plan for achieving it safely. Most stylists rely on highly specialized strategies that require years of experience to master.

If, for some reason, your original goal isn’t possible – maybe it wasn’t realistic in the first place or your hair is now too damaged – you still have options. Elena will help you find an alternative that helps you feel good in your hair without risking further problems along the way.


It’s a Hair Color Emergency When...

  • You aren’t satisfied with your color.
  • Your shade doesn’t match your skin tone.
  • You want a brighter, darker, or lighter tone.
  • You have a large regrowth lines.
  • You experience discoloration.
  • Your hair begins to fade early.

  • You need to correct at-home box dye.
  • You want to remove undesirable hues.
  • You have extreme damage after bleaching.
  • Your bleached hair turned out brassy.
  • You want to lighten or darken roots or ends.
  • You just want your natural hair color back.

Maybe you wanted a nice ginger red and got a brassy copper instead. Or, maybe you tried to go platinum blonde and you’ve been left with a blotchy mix of light brown, ash blonde, and white instead. Heading to the salon is safer than taking your hair into your own hands or trying to resolve the problem at home.

When to Schedule a Color Correction Consultation

Most people can come into the salon safely at around one week after their original failed color process. But ultimately, the answer to this question depends on the overall health of your hair. If your hair is extremely healthy, you may be able to come in right away. If you have a lot of damage, you may need to go through several repair sessions and deep conditioning treatments first.

There can be differences in the risk profile for people based on hair type and how often you process, too. Someone who has virgin hair that has only ever been dyed once will naturally retain more resilience than someone who bleaches often.

Some over the counter products may also need to be stripped out before additional lightening or processing can occur. For example, hair can become excessively hot and damaged or even begin to melt when applying bleach over metallic box dyes.

Elena starts every session with a consultation – this ensures your safety and the health of your hair at every step of the way. It’s just one of the many ways she works hard to earn your confidence and your trust.

Color Correction Hair Solutions - HER Hair by Elena

I was referred to Elena and I was nervous to try a new hairstylist. Our first consultation was an eye opening experience. She listened to my ideas and gave me her expert option. I appreciated her honestly and believe she had my hair's best interest.

She was able to take out the red dye and turn me into a blonde. I never thought I could have healthy long blonde hair before her. She is talented and very patient with me. I definitely recommend to call and book an appointment with Elena Rosas!!!

When I first went to Elena I had never colored my hair because there was never anyone I was able to trust with that responsibility. The first few times I went with her I just got cuts until I started to see her work. I took the chance and allowed her to do her "magic" on my hair & I am so happy that I did. I have not once been disappointed. She is 100% honest and refuses do a session on your hair that will damage your hair in one sitting.

When I first wanted my hair colored I showed her a color that was about 5x lighter than my actual hair color and she refused to do it in one sitting because it would damage my hair tremendously. I wasn't upset I was glad that she was honest because majority of stylists will do it in one session which makes hair look very unhealthy. She is unlike any stylist out there, she is an incredible woman with a whole lot of talent who knows her job better than anyone I know! I love Elena, she's the BEST!!

I drove an hour and a half round trip to have Elena fix some highlights-gone-awry and a haircut that I knew was off but was too afraid to be critical of it. Rome can't be built in a day but she wisely suggested a gradual route towards fixing and moving towards what I'm sure will turn out to be perfectly natural highlights and a great cut that just needs a little time to grow into itself.

If you want wonderfully natural highlighted hair, you can tell by her pictures & Instagram that she completely knows what she's doing! She's so skilled at her craft and she takes your hair seriously - both its health and color and what you're able to keep up. Go to Elena if you are looking to take your color to the next level and not just settle for what is typically offered; she does a great job!
