Why should I get my roots touched up?
Roots and regrowth is a fact of life and everyone will experience it. Aside from coloring your hair, there are many reasons to touch up your roots:
Black Hair – All shades of black hair grow at different rates. Black hair doesn’t hold color as well as other colors of hair because it has less melanin (color) and its texture is more prone to damage. Black hair will need to be touched up every 4-5 weeks, especially with a root touch up system like Shades of Color by Redken Shades EQ. This system uses the same red pigment as our famous color line so you can get long lasting silky black roots, trust me…it’s amazing!!
Brown Hair – All shades of brown hair grow at different rates. Brown hair holds color very well but this also means it can be more damaging if you have a chemical process done often or near your scalp. This is why we recommend going only 4-5 weeks between touch ups. Colors on the brown spectrum hold better than reds and blondes on the light end.
Blonde Hair – All shades of blonde hair grow at different rates. This means some blonde hair may need touch up as little as once a month and others it can be as long as every six weeks depending on the shade of blonde you dye your hair to. The reds and blondes on the light end need touch up more often because of their porous nature.
Blonde highlights – All blonde hair will come out over time since there are no natural brown or black pigment cells in your hair strand to feed the color molecules. New yellow roots will start poking through your lighter ends after 6-8 weeks.
You can mix any shade in our color line so you are guaranteed to have the right tone everytime! This is not possible with home hair coloring kits since their colors are pre-mixed. Our clients come back time and time again for this amazing reason alone!
Ombre – is typically the darkest shade of color with each strand gradually lightening to a light,blonde or white at the ends. Most clients would like to touch up there perfect Ombre once every 5-6 weeks because it continues growing out faster than root touch up due to the hair lightening process.
How does it work?
When you go for a touch up it will be done by a licensed colorist who specializes in this type of color service. Please, don’t try to do this yourself at home!
Depending on how many shades lighter or darker from your desired base will determine the number of sessions needed. Each session is about 30 minutes long and can take place any day of the week unless a chemical service was recently done which would require time for your hair to return to its natural state before beginning process.
Why should I use Shades EQ?
Shades EQ has an exclusive blend of ultra-conditioning red pigments combined with our high powered permanent colors ensure rich and brilliant color results every time. The result: bold, vibrant colors that perfectly match every client’s individual, natural color.
For the health of your hair we recommend using Shades EQ because it is free of ammonia and peroxide which are known to cause hair damage. This color line has been carefully formulated to coat each strand with rich pigments that last up to 8 weeks!
Am I Ready For Root Touch Up?
Your natural hair color can really contrast with your color treated hair. Roots can start showing anywhere from two to three weeks after color service. A good general rule of thumb is to schedule a root touch up every four to six weeks after your last service. This way you can keep you hair color looking fresh without too noticeable of a line of regrowth.
Your Ends May Need Refreshing Too
Depending on your type of color service your hair can fade. When you do a root touch up is a great time to refresh the color on your ends as well. There are products your stylist can recommend to help keep your ends fresh in between services as well.

Most services depend on hair thickness, service time and product costs. Our starting price covers most clients. The other cost difference will be color vs. bleach root touch up.

For Less Maintenance Consider Ombre
Ombre means “shade” and is a type of balayage hair painting technique. With this technique you can blend your root color into your desired color. This is very popular with blonding. This allows your roots to grow in without the need for a root touch up. Allowing you to go longer in between appointments.
