Which hair colour will suit me?
Visit the Salon for a consultation
This is a lifesaver if you’re making a big hair colour change — or even if you’re just nervous about a smaller one. All Francesco Hair salons offer complimentary colour consultations, simply call in or telephone the salon to book.
A consultation allows you to talk through your hair colour dreams with a professional! It’s the perfect way to discuss your needs, wants, and concerns with your hairdresser. Francesco Hair salons each have an incredible team of colour experts with a wealth of advice, knowledge and expertise ready to share with you!
Definitely bring in photos of what you do like AND what you don’t like, because everyone has different interpretations of colour. That way, your Colourist will know exactly what you want to achieve.
Skin Tone Analysis
It’s important to take your skin tone into consideration when choosing a hair colour; you want it to complement, not clash. Ask your Colourist about skin tone analysis in your consultation, they will be able to give you a better idea of what could suit you best.
Determining your skin tone can transform your whole look completely. We look at your natural colouring, features and lifestyle to advise you not only on your perfect hair colour but complimentary clothing and make-up shades too!
With more and more women and men embracing their greys, Wella Professionals new True Grey Range can help you to enhance and celebrate your grey hair!

How can I add vibrancy and shine but maintain a natural look?
The best way to enhance your natural look is to go for a temporary or semi-permanent hair colour. Semi permanent colours encourage healthy hair, require low maintenance and add a high shine to the hair.
Wella Colour Fresh masks are a perfect solution if you’re looking for a quick, low maintenance colour enhancing, glossing service that fades true to tone. Guaranteed to boost shine, enhance colour and leave your hair conditioned and refreshed!
How can I prevent damage when colouring my hair? – Protect your scalp with an Alin Test. At Francesco Hair Salon, the health and wellbeing of our clients is our priority, which is why our Skin Allergy Test Policy insists that if you’re a new client or you haven’t had a colour service with us in the last 6 months, you must undergo a Skin Allergy Test at least 48 hours before your colour appointment.
To ensure that we are giving you the highest levels of customer care, we insist on Skin Allergy Tests for your comfort and protection. Skin Allergy Tests help prevent the occurrence of allergic reactions to hair colour applications, keeping your hair and scalp in safe condition!
The Best Shampoo?
What is the best shampoo for coloured hair?
Your standard shampoo might not work for you once you’ve dyed your hair. A shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for coloured hair, whatever your shade, should be an essential part of your routine to help protect and enhance your colour for longer.
Tailor your shampoo and conditioner to your new colour!
If you want your colour to last as long as possible, INVIGO Colour Brilliance Protection Shampoo provides long lasting colour protection for up to seven weeks, whilst also giving your hair a vibrant shine.
If you’ve gone blonde; consider a purple shampoo; These deposit cooler tones throughout your hair to combat any brassy or unwanted tones. Whether you are a rich caramel blonde or ice white blonde, INVIGO Blonde Recharge Conditioner is available in a warm or cool formula to maintain your shade at home.
Next time you’re in the salon, ask your Stylist to help you choose your hair care products to suit your newly coloured hair and maintain the vibrancy for longer.
Colouring your hair for the first time can feel daunting— but it doesn’t have to be a scary process!
We hope you’re feeling less apprehensive, and more inspired to colour your hair this year with the help of our top tips!
