How Much Will It Cost To Go Blonde?


This really does depend on your hair condition, length and technique or level of blondness you want to achieve.  Book in for a colour consultation where we can give you a no-obligation quote.  You can also check out our price list for all our hair colour pricing options here.

Will Blonde Hair Suit Me?


You can choose any blonde you desire, but the hair experts at our salon in Farnham can also advise you on the perfect blonde for you. Here is a quick guide:

Light Skin Tones – Choose golden, strawberry or light blonde colours. 
Medium Skin Tones – Opt for honey or golden blonde, beige blonde, and light blondes with warm tones.
Dark Skin Tones – Warmer, darker blondes work best such as caramels and golden blondes.

Can Brunettes Go Blonde?


Brunettes can transition to blonde but it’s worth bearing in mind that this will take time to achieve. Book in for a hair colour consultation so we can explain the process, time, colour that will be achieved and price. 

Will Going Blonde Ruin My Hair? 

Advances in hair care products mean we can protect your hair during the hair colouring process. At Ruby Mane, we offer a number of brilliant strengthening treatments and take-home products. 

What Are The Benefits Of Having Blonde Hair?


We love all hair colours here at our salon in Farnham, but as we’re talking about blondes, here are just a few reasons you might want to join the blonde brigade. Find out whether blondes really do have more fun! Fun pastel colours or hair chalks really show up well on blonde hair.  Blonde is a real head-turning hair colour.  Need we say more…?

How Do I Stop My Blonde Hair Looking Washed Out?


In-salon treatments are a great way of helping you maintain a vibrant blonde colour. Upgrade your treatment to include a prescription hair masque or Fusio Dose.  

Why Should I Use Purple Shampoo?


You can prolong the life of your blonde hair colour by using the right hair care products. Professional colour-enhancing or colour-safe shampoos and conditioners are a must if you want to stop your blonde shade from looking washed out or brassy. Purple shampoo is also designed to get rid of unwanted brassy tones that can appear in blonde hair colours.

How Do I Remove Brassy Tones From Blonde Hair?


A toner is a great tool for neutralising unwanted yellow or brassy tones from blonde hair. Just like a purple or violet-toned shampoo, a toner can neutralise the brassy shades, while also adding shine to your hair.  You might also be interested in our Conditioner with a Hint of Colour service which revives colour and adds shine too.

Do You Offer Colour Correction At Your Farnham Hair Salon?


If you’ve had a hair colour disaster with an at-home hair dye kit, we can help correct your hair colour.  Book in as soon as possible for a consultation so we can assess your hair and work on a plan to get it looking healthy and a beautiful colour once again. Check out our colour correction service here.

Remember that you no longer need to visit the salon for a pre-appointment patch test.  Instead, we have partnered with Colourstart which is the only clinically proven screening test for hair colour allergy (PPD) in the UK.

As Colourstart is a licensed medicine, we do have to charge you a one-off £15 for the product. However, we will help with this charge by giving you £5 off your next colour service.

You will need to log into Colourstart and buy the patch test which you then apply at home, logging your results using the Colourstart Digital Passport app. This simple test will replace the six monthly 'blob of colour' we dab onto the inside of your elbow when you visit us in the salon.  Find out how to get started with Colourstart here.

If you suffer from skin sensitivities we highly recommend Schwarzkopf Igora Senea Colour and Schwarzkopf ESSENSITY colour which are both ammonia-free and use natural ingredients where possible.  They deliver beautiful crisp colours with great condition and shine.
