What do hair colouring services include?

From bold and sassy to cool and classic, hair colouring can definitely make a statement. Whether you're going for a permanent hair colour or trendy highlights or you're looking to mix up your style for a special occasion, hair colour specialists near you can help you achieve the look you're aiming for while bringing out your natural features. Here's what to expect when you book a hair colouring service through Airtasker:

All-over hair colouring

All-over hair colouring is a single-step process that involves dyeing the hair with just one pigment or shade. The three types of all-over hair colouring treatments are permanent, semi-permanent, and demi-permanent, with each process varying in longevity and intensity.

Permanent hair colour employs a combination of ammonia and hydrogen peroxide to darken, lighten, or completely change your hair colour, with the new hue lasting anywhere between six to eight weeks. Demi-permanent colour is gentler on your mane but typically washes out after 24 shampoos, while semi-permanent hair colour is chemical-free and easy to maintain but wears off in as short as three weeks. 

Regardless of which process you choose, all-over hair colouring can help you pull off your desired look with added richness and shine.

Highlights and lowlights

If you're looking for a way to subtly refresh your look without as much commitment as a full-on colouring job, then highlights and lowlights are your best bet. It involves applying bleach to certain sections of your hair and wrapping them in aluminium foil. The results can look as natural or as dramatic as you want, with hair having more depth and dimension than typical all-over hair colours. 

You can even ask a hair colourist near you for special treatments such as ombré and balayage. These trendy styles are defined by hair that is darker at the roots and gradually blends into a lighter hue at the ends, giving you that natural-looking glow without having to spend time under the sun.

Hair colouring for events and special occasions

Got an event or special occasion coming up? With Airtasker, you can easily find a hair colour expert who can help transform your look for your wedding or another kind of celebration. Whether you're thinking of dyeing your hair to a bold red or looking for a softer style such as ombré highlights, our platform lets you find the best hair colourist near you without all the hassle. 

You can even go all the way and hire a Tasker to manage your event for you. They can handle all the logistics, so you can focus on enjoying your big day. We also have plenty of wedding vendors who are ready to supply you with all your catering, decorating, and other wedding-related needs.
