No worries! Allow me to walk you through some options on how to book with me for your first color service.

Book Your Appointment

Silver Foxes

Book this package if your roots have some (or more than a few) gray strands that you want to cover or blend with one solid color. I will match your current color without using any foils or lightening services.

This service includes a style and a cut.

Book this service if you have more than 1inch of roots showing, extra length (past your shoulders), or very thick hair.

Brighter & Lighter

Book this package of you are already blonde and want to go blonder and get some form of highlights with foils or painted into your hair.

This service does not include covering your roots. It does include a cut and style.

Brighter and Lighter+
Book this service if you have extra length (past your shoulders) or very thick hair.


Book this service if you have ever had color and want to change it to something different. This could be going from darker color treated hair to lighter colored hair or the reverse.

It could also be choosing to change from a more natural color to a more vibrant, trendy fashion shades.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Color Services at Hair Canvas

Do you use color with chemicals in it?


What color line do you use?

I mostly use Wella. It gives me a wide variety to service my clients and achieve their desired results.

Does your color have ammonia in it?

For the most part, yes. If you need an ammonia free product, let me know, and I can let you know what options I have available for you.

I only use natural products. Do you have organic color options?

Unfortunately, no, I do not have organic options at this time.

I’m Allergic to color / Ammonia. Do you have an option for me?

There is a difference between sensitivities and allergies. An allergy test can and will be performed to help you determine if you have an allergy to the color. As with any chemical, if you are allergic to it, I will not perform the service. An allergy means the potential to be hospitalized and I would not recommend you move forward with receiving that service from anyone or anywhere.

How much is the deposit?

It depends on the service and length of time you are booked for. This will be determined in the consultation.
*Color correction can be up to 50% of the total service

Do I have to pay for a consultation?

I have a digital consult form free of charge available here on the site. If there is a need to move into a more in-depth consult and depending on the service requested, there is a 30 minute consult that will be booked and charged $50 for. If we move forward to booking your appointment, the $50 will be applied towards your deposit to secure your appointment. The consultation is nonrefundable.

I’m Pregnant, but can I still get color?

As with any chemical, I recommend you speak with your physician. Most clients choose to wait to receive chemical services after their first trimester.

How long do I have to wait to style or wash my hair after color?

With every color service a post treatment is performed to seal your color. Generally you will be ok to shampoo the next day. I will give you a more detailed regimen, during your appointment, on how to best maintain your color and style at home.

*Don’t see what you are looking for or have more questions, please book a consult and we can go through the process together.
