Boredom has caused many to explore new cuts or colors while at home under government orders.
Some are just looking for a low-maintenance style that they can take care of themselves while salons are closed.
Whether you suddenly want bangs or are trying to touch-up grown out roots, professionals are recommending you consult with them despite their doors being forced closed.
Many hairstylists around Houston are offering online consultations and have created touch-up and dying kits for clients during this time.
Karen Anne Jacks of Della Ricca is just one hair expert that wants to see people successfully color their hair.
According to Paper City magazine, Jacks created the Della Ricca hair color line in 2008 when the recession hit and her clients’ beauty budgets greatly decreased.
Della Ricca do-it-yourself kits sell for $39.99 plus shipping, but you can’t just add it to your cart and check out as you would for a tradition online shopping experience.
First, clients complete an online questionnaire and submit photos of their hair.
Experts at Della Ricca then determine what color, strength and application method is the best fit for the client.
After the online consultation, clients can purchase a custom Della Ricca kit. Once a client receives their hair color in the mail, they can treat their hair themselves or they can set up an appointment with a Hair Hero to walk them through the process on FaceTime, Paper City reports.
