A Skin Test is Needed Before Hair Colour Appointments

We are a colour responsible salon; all colour services require an allergy test 48 hours in advance of any colouring or highlighting service.

Our colour services are available to men and women aged 16 and over.  You must come in for a skin test to check for allergies to the colour range we use. 

There’s no need to book for this as it takes seconds, but we will not colour without a record of a skin test. If you have had no reaction within 48 hours, we can go ahead with your hair colour. Please advise the salon if you think you may have reacted to the colour patch test.
