It is mandatory to book a pre-consultation time before big changes or color corrections. This is because the upcoming procedure involves a wide range of services and techniques (including bleaching, highlights, balayage, toning, etc.) and much depends on the condition of the client’s hair and scalp and the procedures performed in the past. The time spent on a consultation can vary, so it is important to consider it separately from the rest of the time spent on the service. The optimal time for consultation is 30 minutes.
During the consultation, we will take a test piece of hair. In addition, it is a great help if you send in advance pictures of your hair and the desired result and information about your hairstyle history during the last 3 years. It should also be kept in mind that the consultation may not reveal the final price – it all depends on which services are needed to perform to achieve the result. As color correction is a much more complicated procedure than just coloring, it should also be taken into account that procedures performed with the client’s hair in the past can offer surprises. It is definitely necessary to be patient, as it sometimes takes several visits to the hairdresser to achieve the desired result, and it can take months. For all of the above reasons, a color correction cannot be booked in our online system.
The time required for different color techniques (highlights, balayage, airtouch, babylights, ombre, etc.) can range from 4 to 6 hours. This time depends on the technique that is used, plus consultation (explaining exactly what to do to avoid a situation where the hairdresser has misunderstood client’s wish), wrapping the hair in foil (up to about 2 hours), coloring (about 45 minutes), toning (30min), in the meantime the color must be rinsed off of some of the pieces, and BondPro for hair protection and effect.
Bleaching is the removal of the pigment from the hair. The process of the work depends on the tone desired, the type of hair and the procedures performed previously. In order to achieve cold and gray tones, the yellow pigment must first be removed from the hair, because the lighter the base, the more beautiful the greys, pastel tones, and cold blonde looks.
We use Silklift bleaching powder which is the most effective bleaching system, while also being delicate and giving the hair extra support and care. The ingredients are enriched with IntraLipid™ components that restore lipids that have been lost. We also use BondPro while performing very extensive transformations. BondPro consists of two parts: the first is mixed with bleach and the second is used as a hair mask. The goal is to achieve beautiful color while having the feel and look of healthy hair.
The timeframe depends on what has been done to your hair before and how cold is the desired tone. Average time amount is 4 hours – adding the bleach takes up to 2 hours with exposure time of at least 45 minutes, then washing, drying and cutting if desired. Large-scale alterations take up to 7-10 hours. It must be taken into account that in order to minimize the hair damage there may be several sessions needed, enabling your hair to recover in between. Therefore we recommend you take time, be patient and trust your hairstylist.
Domestic hair care is key to keeping your bleached hair healthy and good-looking, therefore you need to stock up on gentle and moisturizing hair products. Bleached hair always needs thermal protection that you need to apply while using heat to blowdry, curl or straighten. We also strongly recommend our Kerasilk Reconstruct hair therapy and the regular use of moisturizing masks.
The lighter and more pastel the hair, the faster it fades because these colors consist of very little pigment and the “empty” bleached hair cannot hold on to it which causes the color to wash off quickly. Therefore we suggest you reschedule your next visit already while leaving the salon. The average revisitation interval should be 4-6 weeks with outgrowth of 2 cm (with more than 2 cm it becomes problematic to maintain an even tone).
Highlighting is the best option to achieve a lighter look without visiting the salon every 4-6 weeks. We recommend abundant narrow streaks to keep the overall look significantly more blonde while keeping the outgrowth as subtle as possible. In order to sustain a well-groomed look the procedure needs to be repeated every 3-4 months with an outgrowth of up 3 cm.
Toning is altering haircolor with semi-permanent colors. It is a simple and convenient way to give bleached or highlighted hair maximum shine and character. Toning can be done at all times and its permanence depends on how dark is the preferred shade – the more pastel, the faster it fades. The durability of color also depends on the condition and structure of hair and the maintenance it receives at home on a daily basis. We recommend refreshing procedures after every 20 washes. Goldwell offers two kinds of toners – the 5-minute-toner and the 30-minute-toner. We use Goldwell Colorance and Elumen and extra oomph is accomplished with Pure Pigments that add interesting nuances. The price of toning is added to the average color and cutting cost. If you wish to tone you hair without the aforementioned services the price will be based on the toning process itself.
For extra bright results we use a revolutionary product called Pure Pigments which creates a 3D image shifting in different lights. This patented product forms an everchanging spectre of color and results in hair that is 63% more shiny, up to 3 times more intense and 2 times more resistant to fading.
Perfectly smooth and easy-care hair for 3-5 months. Duration of the procedure 4-5h. The treatment does not remove 100% of the curl from the hair, but it makes the hair silky and reduces frizz.
Kerasilk Keratin De-Frizz treatment lasts 4-6 weeks. Duration of the procedure 1-1.5h. The treatment reduces frizz, but does not remove curls from the hair. The treatment helps to keep the hair straighter. If coloring is desired, treatment should be performed before coloring.
Our hair stylists possess many trendy coloring techinques like balayage, ombre, dipdye, sombre, sunkissed, babylights and airtouch. We also perform color corrections. However, large scale transformations require extensive consultation and therefore we ask customers to send beforehand a picture of their hair and also of the desired result. Final price is revealed during consultation, after adding the estimated material cost.
Different procedures have different requirements. For example:
1) If you are coming in for coloring we recommend having unwashed hair because the natural protection layer of your own skin reduces the feeling of discomfort that may occur during the procedure. Hair should be washed on the previous day without using your usual hair products such as hair spray, mousse, paste, oil serums etc.
2) If you desire to get a fringe, you must take into account that salon washing and drying is required. If you want to trim an already existing fringe, come with clean hair but don’t apply any hair products.
Different hairstylists have different skill sets and experience, that’s why their prices vary. This is why you should always consult the receptionist in order to understand the prices and adjust you personal budget to it.

Although we do everything in our power to be as responsive as possible we do hope that clients are understanding when we do not answer right away. The most certain means to contact us is to write or call during open hours (Monday to Friday 10.00-20.00). We also ask you to keep in mind that if you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment, 50% of the estimated cost will be charged.
Every client has the right to get what he/she wants but extremely hair damaging procedures require a signed consent where the client states that he/she is aware of the dangers and possible concequences and will not file any complaints. This should also be kept in mind that we offer coloring services to clients older than 16. Younger customers must present their parents’ approval.
If you have never altered your haircolor before then an allergy test is recommended – a small amount of product will be applied to an area of skin behind your ear and then during 48 hours it will be monitored for an allergic reaction.
Hot scissors can improve the health of your hair on the outside. At the same time as cutting the ends of the hair, the ends of the hair will be closed. While a normal scissor cut leaves the ends of the hair open, due to the heat, the hair is cut and the ends closed at the same time. If the ends of the hair remain closed, the hair can also retain its natural oil content and moisture.
NB! If you want to dye your hair or do some kind of treatment at the same time, we always recommend that you do a hot scissors first and then the color or treatment. Then it’s sure that you will get the best results.
Of course. Our hairstylists love little clients. But you do have to keep in mind the wellbeing of other clients if you come in for a procedure yourself and want to bring your children along. Even though the beauty world is very exciting for adults, even the most wellbehaved kids get easily bored and then no-one is safe from all the “excitement”. In addition manu beauty products are hazardous and need to be kept away from children. In other words, leave your bundles of joy with a nanny and treat yourself to some relaxation.

K18 gives confidence to both hairdressers in salons and home users by introducing a new, revolutionary peptide. It is suitable for every hair type!
To be specific, classic massage is frequently used during sports massage. In both massage types, you’ll experience mild to deep pressure applied through the length of muscle fibers where tension is present. However, sports massage extends further to include a few more techniques that classic massage might not include. It’s aimed at providing a sports enthusiast the most effective relief and treatment. This may include the addition of a few passive stretches, trigger point pressure, tendon release and tapotement, which is the use of vibration through hacking and cupping techniques.
It may be rumored that sports massage hurts, and this is likely true. This particular massage type is not known to be gentle. Because deep tissue massage is one of the techniques involved, this generates deep friction between the muscles fibers and fascia. While it may feel more intense or uncomfortable in certain areas than a Swedish or classic massage, it should not feel excruciating. If it’s causing you too much pain or discomfort, you should mention this. Sometimes deep pressure over problematic areas is needed, and for a short amount of time, this may be uncomfortable. However, you should gauge this and a good massage therapist will check in with how you are feeling.
The frequency of sports massage depends on the intensity, frequency and volume of training or sports you do as well as your level of experience. It is however, not limited to just sports individuals. The same is true for individuals who have physically strenuous work or the opposite, very sedentary static work behind a desk. All of these cause strain and overuse in different areas of the body. In general, most individuals will benefit from a weekly massage. However, this may not be cost-effective for you if you’re on a budget. This can be stretched to bi-monthly and even just once a month depending on the relief you feel it provides you. Sporting individuals with very demanding training regimes would benefit from 1-2 massage sessions a week.
Depending on the body area being massaged, it’s often required to remove as much clothing as possible. It is not expected that an individual remove all of their clothing, but in order to have an effective massage, most of the joints and skin should be unclothed. A massage therapist should always cover certain areas of the body during your session, as to not leave you feeling vulnerable or exposed. They move the toweling around as needed. In all of the sessions, women and men may keep their lower underwear on for full body massage. If you’re just having your legs massaged as an example, there’s no need to remove your upper body clothing.
3D eyebrow treatment is like a new generation eyebrow treatment technique. Unlike the very classic treatment, two-stage dyeing (with a toning dye and a permanent dye) is performed in a special technique, in which case the exposure time of both colors must be taken into account. In addition, the service includes eyebrow cleaning, peeling of the skin under the eyebrows, measuring the shape of the brows, waxing / plucking and eyebrow massage. It’s like a mini spa for eyebrows and time invested in yourself!
We mainly use E.MI, Victoria Vynn or other high-quality and professional products for permanent manicure.
Gel polish is removed with melting technique using an electric file and an acetone foil wrap.
If it is not possible to visit the salon, we recommend removing the gel polish in the same way as we do: first file the layer of topcoat with a rough file, soak a cotton pad with acetone, place it on the the nail and put a piece of foil around the finger tip, hold for 5-10 minutes (depending on the strength of the remover), gently push the gel polish off the nail with a wooden stick, moisturize the cuticles with oil or cream.
The interval between treatments is generally 2-4 weeks. Growth and permanence depend on the client’s nail plate, general lifestyle, weather conditions, etc.
Overall, the gel polish does not damage your nails, but as with a normal manicure, the surface of the nail is also filed with an electric file which can damage the nail plate, but only if your nail technician is inexperienced or “too strong”. The customer can also remove the part of their natural nail by pulling off the polish by force by themselves. During the repeated
“pulling off method”of the gel polish, the nail may become thin and sensitive, and then its not recommended to apply it for a while.
