Thank you for booking an appointment with Franco of Canberra.
We look forward to seeing you !!
Before your appointment here are 8 things you should know or prepare so you get the most out of your visit.
The more pictures you can bring in, the more we can hone in on the vibe, texture, and colour you want. Have a look at our Instagram, Facebook and website for finding inspiration on the style you're searching for.
Remember that while you may not get exactly what any picture shows (because your hair may have a different texture, etc.), they a great help in guiding your stylist to the best option for your hair and lifestyle.
When you come into the salon please be ready to descibe to your stylist your working, sporting and leisure lifestyle. This is especially important if it's your first visit or you're looking for new style or colour. When you get your hair done, we want to present you with a freshly coloured, cut and style on a canvas that best represents you. Good communication will help guide your stylist in making sure your hair is well suited to your every day lifestyle.
If you're not protecting your hair at home, you're making your life harder than it should be. Using the correct products for your hair type, prolongs the salon life of your hair. Professional hair products are highly concentrated, meaning you have to use less product in your hair to achieve the results you want.
At the start of your appointment is your consultation where your stylist will diagnose your hair and scalp and recommend what type of products you should be using.
During your consultation we will ask about your hair history - be truthful about what products you have used and use regularly. (For example, if you used a box-dye to go blonde). This will determine what kind and how strong of a product and treatments your hair stylist will be using for your hair maintenance and colour.
It happens - a box-dye has gone wrong and you need a professional rescue, it might be a big, expensive project. Make it clear what has happened and what you want to have happen.
Your desired result may not be achievable with just one visit to the salon.
If you have dark brown or black hair, and want to go blonde or pastel, it's gonna take a lot of love and a lot of work. If you have ever dyed your hair dark, even if it was years ago, the ends are not virgin hair. If you have dyed it more than once, you have layers of colour that need to come off. Trying to force your hair to go lighter too quickly will damage your hair and will leave you with a big expensive colour correction job. Your stylist will advise you on how often you will need to leave your hair in-between appointments and how to look after your hair at home so the journey is as smooth and enjoyable.
Protecting your hair from damage is key to maintaining healthy hair. We offer intensive Hair Repair as add ons with your colour service to protect and nourish your hair during the colour process. Using a once a week intensive at-home treatment will also prolong the salon life of your hair between appointments. Ask during your consultation for the types of products that match your hair type.
We have limited availability, so if you are running late on the day call the Salon ASAP.
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your booking, we may not be able to perform your complete service or may need to re-book as it can affect other client bookings.
We do our best to accommodate last minute changes, however if we are fully booked with clients we unfortunately won't be able to go ahead with a booking.
We look forward to seeing you at the salon soon !!
