Before You Come

Good communication with your stylist is essential for getting what you want. A few minutes of pre-salon prep can help you explain your goals, and ensure that your stylist understands your desired result.

Bring your inspiration

Photographs and examples of hair you love will help you and your stylist explore your options - and ensure that you both mean the same thing when you say, "honey blonde", or "just a trim."

Know your history

Be prepared to tell your stylist about any prior cut or color services, whether it was highlights last year or a color gloss last month.

Trust your stylist

Listen to your stylist's expert opinion. During your consultation, he or she will consider your desired result, then evaluate your hair's condition and look at your skin tone and coloring in order to create your custom look.

Ask questions

If you hear a term you don't understand, don't hesitate to ask your stylist for an explanation. Remember to inquire about maintenance - how often you'll need to return to the salon for a trim ro how to best maintain your color at home between visits.

  • Try to walk into the salon with your everyday "look", so your stylist can get a feel for what you're comfortable with.
  • If you have the time, do a little research into terminology. Knowing the difference between terms like demi-permanent and permanent color can help you and your stylist communicate more efficiently.
  • Your stylist is there to work with you to achieve beautiful hair. The more you can explain about what you want, the better the collaboration will be.
  • If you are going in for "corrective color" - to correct color results you are unhappy with from a prior color experience - be prepared for a possible longer visit, as your stylist may need to remove old color and then recolor your hair.

Our Policies

  • Cancellation
  • We ask for at least 24 hours notice in the event of a change to your services or cancellation. We understand that emergencies arise and will do our best to accommodate you. However, we reserve the right to ask for a credit card number to hold all appointments, and to charge the card at 100% of the service value in the event of a no show, or a cancellation with less than 24 hours notice.

  • Lateness
  • We always do our best to accommodate our guests; however, in the case of lateness this is not always possible. IF you are running more than 10 minutes late for an appointment and do not call, it is considered a no show for an appointment (please see cancellation policy). We understand that emergencies arise, and will do our best to accommodate you; nevertheless we will not sacrifice the experience of another guest to "squeeze" you in.

  • Children in the Salon
  • Hey Red! Inc. Salon aims to provide a sanctuary for our clients, a place to relax for a moment, relieve he stress of our modern lives, and to be indulged. Children are always welcome in the salon when they are receiving services. However, we use chemicals, hot irons and sharp scissors - and don't want anyone to be injured while visiting us, least of all a child. For their safety, children are not allowed in the cutting area unless they are receiving a service. Children and babies in strollers or car seats are not allowed in the cutting area while a parent, friend, or sibling, etc., is receiving a service. Please make arrangements for children to be tended to if you plan to be in the salon for an extended period of time.

Client Referrals

The greatest compliment that any guest can pay us is a referral to a friend or family member! For every client who lists you as the person who referred* them and receives a service of $25 or more, you will receive a $25 referral certificate**!

About Me: I have always wanted to be a stylist, however over the years I have come to truly understand that as a stylist we are so much more than "just a hairdresser". The power of the human touch is so powerful, and sometimes for some guests we are the only person that touches them. There is also a delicate balance when dealing with someone's self image, it is what they see when they look in the mirror, how they project themselves to the world, and how other people see them. It is up to us as professionals to fulfill those needs of our guests.
