Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my appointment take?
Please allow up to 4 hours for your hair appointment or for colour corrections allow up tp 5 hours.
Blonde/Balayage takes time to perfect. We take extra special care to ensure you leave the salon with a beautiful colour. We love happy clients, so please don’t set us a time frame or rush us!
Can I bring any extras? Friends/ parents / children?
The salon also has a no extra’s policy in place. Unfortunately, this also includes babies and children. We have limited space in the salon and like to make sure all clients have a relaxing experience. Our insurances also don’t cover children as we have a lot of chemical products and hot styling tools, and it is not safe for little ones.
What can I do to prepare for my first hair appointment at KLBS?
Please come in with semi clean hair 3 or less days washed before the appointment. Having it too dirty makes it harder for the lightener to lift through.
If you get scalp lightener, please leave it unwashed 3 or more days. It is better for it to be dirty as the oils work as a barrier to protect the scalp.
If you are using any supper market products, please throw them in the bin right away as your hair may have a chemical reaction. If you are using nonprofessional products, please book in for a detox treatment prior to your appointment. This will help us on to achieve your goal quicker and safer.

How often should I use purple shampoo?
We suggest not using purple shampoo until 3 weeks after you colour appointment. Otherwise, it can push your toner out.
Creamy blondes you will need to use it very sparsely. And possibly only once a month.
Hair babes who like their blonde ashier or icy can use a little more often.
Just keep in mind toners / blonde shampoos only change the tone.
Toners do not lighter the hair.
If anything, too much purple shampoo can make it to ash will make the hair appear darker/ duller.
