Psssst... Imagine this: You stroll into your stylist's chair with a stunning color picture in hand. Your stylist works their magic, and you adore the result. But then comes the shocker – the total bill is sky-high, way beyond anything you've ever paid before, and you had absolutely no heads-up.

Regrettably, this scenario plays out all too often in salons across North America. Let's spill a little secret. Money talk tends to make most hairstylists break into a sweat. Why? The truth is, many stylists are people-pleasers at heart – all they want is for you to adore your hair. But here's the real deal: the landscape of hair coloring has evolved drastically over the past decade. Gone are the days of simple highlights and a quick toner. Nowadays, the pictures you bring in often call for a blend of 3-4 colors and 2-3 techniques, far from the basic routine of highlights and a speedy toner application. So, how do your average stylists handle this? Well, truth be told, not very effectively. As a result, they often end up doing far more work than they charge for, without transparently discussing what's feasible within every budget, or they do it all don't say anything and leave you with the sticker shock at the front desk!

So what's the good news?

Amazing hair color is an option no matter the budget. In today's economic landscape, every dollar counts. But saving money doesn't have to mean sacrificing the vibrant, head-turning hair color you love. Here at BLNDE the blog, we're dedicated to helping you achieve gorgeous locks without breaking the bank. Let's dive deeper into our top 5 insider tips for saving big on your hair color while still turning heads:

Here's how to save money at your next appointment!

1. Frequent Maintenance Appointments for Lasting Brilliance: Picture this: instead of waiting months between color treatments, opt for smaller, more frequent maintenance appointments. By staying on top of your color every few months vs twice a year, you'll avoid the dreaded overhaul that comes with waiting too long. Not only does this keep your color looking fresh and vibrant, but it also saves you time and money in the long run. Remember a long time in between appointments means your stylist has to almost start over. More time AND more color and product required equals a more expensive appointment.

2. Salons That Understand Your Beauty Budget: It's time to shatter the taboo surrounding beauty budgets. At BLNDE beauty bar in Saskatoon, we believe in open and honest communication about your financial constraints. Our stylists are here to work with you, not against you, to create a custom color plan that fits your budget. Whether it's a subtle shift or a dramatic transformation, we'll help you achieve your desired look without breaking the bank. Make sure to partner with a salon that doesn't avoid talking about your beauty budget - in fact it should be part of the consultation.

3. Financing Options for Big Transformations: Dreaming of a major hair makeover or considering hair extensions? Don't let financial concerns hold you back. Find a salon that offers financing through companies like pay bright. This is great for larger services such as extensions or color corrective service. Our salons offers flexible financing options to make your hair dreams a reality.

4. Nourish Your Color with Proper Aftercare: The key to long-lasting color brilliance? Following your stylist's aftercare instructions to a T. Avoid the temptation to skimp on quality products in favor of drugstore alternatives, which can strip color and damage your hair's pH balance. Stick with the products recommended by your stylist to protect your investment and keep your color looking fresh between appointments. Also make sure you understand the salons policies around refunds. Although most salons guarantee their work, most salon usually do not offer refunds. If you use drugstore products and don't take up your stylist on their recommendations it could void any guarantee if your color fades quicker than expected.
