What are walk-in hair salons?

Full Answer

Services such as washing, cutting, coloring and blow-drying are commonly offered at walk-in salons. Some treatments, such as straightening or perms, may require an initial consultation followed by an appointment. Services at walk-in salons are generally less expensive than appointment-only salons. Tipping the stylist is customary after receiving services; if the customer is happy, tipping 20 to 25 percent is expected.

    How do I get permanent hair dye out of my hair?

    A:

    Hair dye can only be removed with bleach, so to remove permanent hair dye, apply a soap cap. If necessary, tone and re-color the hair. Removing permanent hair dye takes roughly 45 minutes plus re-coloring time and requires shampoo, hair bleach, conditioner and protective gloves. If re-coloring the hair, food coloring and hair color are also needed.
