Christmas is just around the corner, and wit that comes busy salons and most likely hard to find appointments! It’s always this time of the year that we find our clients and other customers make some big mistakes when it comes to getting their hair ready for the festive holidays.
Yes, you might find it a bit more difficult to get in a convenient time to book in, but that does not mean you should be taking risks when it comes to your hair! This could mean bleaching your own hair for that ‘beach blonde’ look, or having a ‘friend’ cut your hair because your salon is too busy to slot you in.
One of the more common mistakes we see clients making is trying to bleach their own hair if they can’t get an appointment in time. There is a reason bleaching hair should be completed by trained professionals, like your regular Savvy team member! Your hair can quite literally melt and fall out of your scalp if you do it incorrectly or if you use a product that is not compatible!

You might even be left with burns that will not only be painful, but unsightly too and most likely ruin your holidays!
Do not attempt to do this at home. Give Savvy a call and we’ll see if we can find you a slot.
The same can be said with dying or colouring your hair. Sure, your hair isn’t going to melt or fall out, but you might be left with results that leave a lot to be desired (as well as looking like a ‘home’ job). Ultimately, you’ll have to come back to the salon, and we’ll have to fix it for you – costing you more time and money than if you’d have just slotted some time to come in and see us!
Finally, we also hear of a few incidents where, rather than visiting the salon for a quick cut and style, women might get a friend to do a quick trim to get through the holiday period. Again, this is a risky venture and might result in you being the butt of some jokes over the holidays.
Just check out the results of this home job and let us know what you think!
So, if you haven’t got your salon session booked in, and you’re thinking about taking some risks -don’t! Get on the phone to Savvy now and book in – we’ll make sure your holidays are a pleasant experience (and not you covering up your very own hair nightmare).
