Save Your Hair with Expert Color Correction


Summer is a great time for experimenting with new hair colors. The sun is shining, the days are long, and you might be feeling adventurous. However, sometimes those DIY hair color adventures don’t go as planned, and you end up with a shade that’s far from what you envisioned. Whether your hair turned out too brassy, too dark, uneven, or just plain wrong, Langmore Salon is here to rescue you with expert color correction services. Here’s how we can help you fix a DIY hair color gone wrong and get your hair back to looking fabulous.

Understanding Color Correction

Color correction is a specialized process that involves adjusting and correcting unwanted hair color to achieve the desired shade. It’s more complex than regular hair coloring and requires a thorough understanding of color theory, hair chemistry, and advanced techniques. At Langmore Salon, our skilled stylists are trained to handle all types of color mishaps and can transform your hair from a disaster to a masterpiece.

Common DIY Hair Color Problems

Uneven Color

One of the most common issues with DIY hair coloring is uneven color distribution. This can happen if the color wasn’t applied uniformly, if sections of hair were missed, or if the processing time was inconsistent.

Unwanted Tones

DIY hair coloring can sometimes result in unwanted tones, such as brassy, orange, or green hues. This usually occurs due to incorrect formulation, improper timing, or an underlying hair color that wasn’t properly accounted for.


Using too strong a developer or leaving the color on for too long can lead to over-processed hair, which becomes dry, brittle, and damaged.

Color Too Dark or Too Light

Achieving the perfect shade can be tricky, and it’s easy to end up with hair that’s too dark or too light compared to what you intended.

How Langmore Salon Can Help

Expert Consultation

The first step in any color correction process is a thorough consultation. At Langmore Salon, our experienced stylists will assess the condition of your hair, understand your hair history, and discuss your desired outcome. This allows us to create a customized plan to correct your color effectively.

Gentle and Effective Techniques

Color correction often involves multiple steps to achieve the best results while maintaining the health of your hair. Our stylists use gentle and effective techniques to lift unwanted color, neutralize brassy tones, and restore your hair to a more natural, desirable shade. Depending on the severity of the issue, this may include:

  • Color Removal: Carefully removing the unwanted color without causing further damage to your hair.

  • Toning: Using toners to neutralize unwanted brassy, orange, or green tones.

  • Balayage or Highlights: Adding dimension and blending colors to create a more natural and cohesive look.

  • Deep Conditioning Treatments: Restoring moisture and strength to your hair after the color correction process to ensure it remains healthy and vibrant.

Customized Solutions

Every color correction case is unique, and our stylists tailor their approach to suit your specific needs. Whether you need a subtle adjustment or a complete overhaul, we have the skills and products to deliver exceptional results.
