Preparing for your hair appointment
Preparing for your hair appointment
A beauty appointment is never "just an appointment." It’s closer to a personal fashion show, where you and your hair or skin are the star.
Consider it your time to be pampered, we’re here to make you look and feel Happy, Strong, and Beautiful! But (yes, there is a but, but all good things are followed with one, even you) team work makes the dream work and your service provider wants your help as much as you want ours!
THE HAIR CONSULTATION
If you are a first time guest at Jovie C, then a thorough consultation is a must. Allowing time to craft the perfect vision of your future hair goals is so important! Just like any relationship, communication is key!
Photos are always helpful, like a little window into the future of your hair. Now, we know how exciting that part can be but keep in mind that Pinterest has a strange way of overwhelming and blurring our hair realities. We work in the realm of real beauty magic, so take a tour of the land with us to create the perfect look for you.
If you have hair that would make Rapunzel jealous, then please be aware of what that means for your style and your pocketbook!
At Jovie C, we want to meet your hair goals, but we would also like to care and take care of your hair to our best ability, which is why we have a consultation to tell you that black hair is going to take a few sessions to get to that Pinterest silvery grey. If your hair is a dark ebony, but you want it to be as white blonde, please understand that it could require many appointments to safely achieve the shade you desire. It could literally take 6 months and will often lift to a warmer shade than you want before you can get lighter. We will always be honest with you about the process. Understand that if your hair has any previous artificial color (especially anything processed at-home) the likelihood that we will ever be able to safely achieve an ashy dark blonde or lighter is very slim.
COME WITH CLEAN HAIR
When it's time for your appointment, please bring your lovely self with your hair done how you usually have it styled. Clean hair will accept and hold what ever color processes we need to do much easier than if you have hair that is dirtied or has dry shampoo. CLEAN IS BEST!
IF YOU NORMALLY WEAR MAKEUP, COME WITH IT ON.
We know many ladies love to wear that full face of makeup! If you do, bring that lovely face of yours in like you normally wear it so when your appointment ends and we become your paparazzi for our Instagram, you will look the way you love to look! Throw on those fake lashes ( or make an appointment with us for Lash Extensions) and fill in those brows so your before and after photos express who you are!
If you don't wear a full face on the reg, we love you too! And we will rock your before and after pictures just the same!
GOOD WORK ISN'T CHEAP & CHEAP WORK ISN'T GOOD...
Please be aware of your budget for your hair because just as beauty is pain, it can also be an expensive day. If we could go back to our seventeen-year-old selves, we'd say to invest the money on a real salon rather than letting a friend do your box color, or finding the cheapest deal that could put you in the worst condition. Please consider that it takes considerable amounts of time, education, product, and effort to create the looks that are requested nowadays.
HAIR APPOINTMENTS CAN TAKE TIME...
Just as all good things come with a price tag, they also come to those who wait. Depending on the service you are getting, you could be here from anywhere between thirty minutes to six hours. Please be prepared to hang out with us, even if that means you bring a laptop to get work done or a lunch to munch on while your color processes. The Sistine Chapel wasn’t painted in a day, so feel blessed that your balayage can be done in a few hours.
INVEST IN YOUR HAIR & CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU PUT ON IT.
While this piece is meant to best prepare you for before and during of your hair appointment, this last bit is to warn you against the danger of using low quality products and mismanaging your post visit care. Be sure to read our Terms/Policies Section linked at the bottom of our site regarding service guarantees.
Our artists will always be sure to prescribe the best combinations of take home product to maintain your new look and inform you of the upkeep of your hair will require before letting you cross the threshold back into the world.
While we are easily reached by phone or email whenever you need hair care advice- it is always better to leave with the insurance policy that our professional salon products provide to care for your hair. Kevin.Murphy is an independently owned and operated hair care company that are people, pet, and planet friendly. They care about sustainability and high quality SAFE ingredients (just like Jovie C) and their products are formulated to work alongside their corresponding hair color lines to maintain your service investment (anddd, you are supporting a locally owned small business at the same time!).
PREBOOK YOUR NEXT APPOINTMENT.
It is also better to leave with the knowledge that you are prebooked for your next appointment (or 3 or 6) because our artists schedules are filling fast. Nothing is worse than overgrown bangs and a wallowing sense of regret for not booking out right away and having to wait a few weeks. We are more than happy to book you out for the entire year as it is always better to have an appointment preset and have to push it out a little bit (providing that you give us 48 hours or more notice when rescheduling..) than to not have an appointment and have to wait for our soonest availability.
