Single Process Hair Colouring versus Double Process

The condition of your hair is the start to decide what is best aproach for Hair Coloring.

  • Single Process

    Single process hair colour is an all over, one dimensional colour that can be used to darken or lighten hair. It’s gentle on both your hair and your wallet and is a great solution for covering up grey hair. If you think that adding one colour to your hair is something you can do at home, you’re right. But, no matter how easy you think it might be, it’s always best to trust a professional. You don’t know how one shade will react with the color you already have, and orange hair is probably not the result you want to achieve. A single process won’t damage your hair and can turn dull hair shiny and vibrant.

    Double Process

    Double process is a slightly more complicated way of adding colour to hair. It involves lightening hair by more than two shades with a two-step process. First the hair is bleached to remove your natural color, then toned to create the shade you’re going for. Like single process it is an all over colour, and it's the only way for people with dark hair to achieve those light blonde shades.

    Whether you decide to perform a single process color or double process colour on your hair, remember, like anything else, hair needs to be cared for – especially when using a double processing treatment. Hair that is double processed often has a high volume of breakage and split ends, and at Figaro Hair Salon we offer a variety of products that can help you care for your new colour.

    "If you have a good haircut, you don’t need to spend a lot of time styling at all, as hair should be cut to match not only your face structure, but your personal style and lifestyle needs as well." says Elena, Art director and Principal stylist at Figaro Hair Salon in Toronto to ELLE Canada about Future Hair Trends "That’s how we create a personal style."
