How Long Does a Hair Color Appointment Take?

How Long Does a Hair Color Appointment Take?

April 8, 2024

With varying factors—including the services you’ve requested, the individual characteristics of your hair, how much hair, and the coloring process—it’s hard to say how long your appointment will take. A typical hair appointment can range from around an hour to an hour and a half for a simple haircut or trim, to several hours for a more intricate color treatment, blow dry, or styling session.

Aveda Bethesda’s Expertise in Hair Coloring

At Aveda Bethesda, unparalleled expertise in hair coloring meets complete excellence in your salon pampering session. Book a consultation with one of our professional stylists to find out how much time is needed to achieve the haircut and color of your dreams. Time spent on your consultation will greatly help your stylist determine how much time is needed on the day of your services.

Why Schedule a Hair Color Appointment

The key to achieving your desired results while simultaneously ensuring the health and integrity of your hair is scheduling a professional hair color appointment. Our experienced colorists take the time to understand your vision, customizing treatments to enhance your natural beauty. You may be wondering how long it takes, but that varies depending on the services you’re looking for. That’s why it’s so important to speak with a stylist.

Average Duration of a Hair Color Appointment at Aveda Bethesda

The duration of a hair color appointment can vary based on many factors. The length of your hair can make a huge difference in determining service time length. Short hair may be faster to cut and style, while long hair can take more time. Certain treatments and styles generally also matter. Times can range greatly from half an hour to over four hours.

Factors Affecting Appointment Length

Complexity of Desired Hair Color

Whether it’s a full head of multi-dimensional highlights, a basic color, or a natural color to cover a box dye, the processing time may vary widely. Dark brown hair may require a longer wait time while bleaching light-colored hair won’t take as long. If your roots are darker, they will need a longer time to bleach or dye. 

Our exceptional colorists can help you achieve the look you desire while maintaining the integrity and health of your hair and scalp. Your stylist is the expert on bleaching and dyeing and can book an appropriate amount of time for your service during your consultation. 

Hair Texture and Length

Our colorists tailor their approach based on your hair’s unique characteristics. The natural texture and length of your hair can greatly impact how well a new color can absorb. Long, thick, or curly hair may need extended processing to ensure seamless coverage, while fine hair will be a much faster process on average. Regardless of time, your salon experience is our top priority.

Additional Treatments and Consultation

Before your appointment, our colorists will conduct a thorough consultation to assess your hair, offer personalized recommendations, and discuss your goals. Opting for additional services such as a blow dry, curls, or highlights, can greatly impact the length of your booking. A simple wash after a dye without the blow-dried service will be a much shorter process. Each additional treatment can add a half hour to an hour to your time in the salon chair.

Preparing for Your Appointment

To make the most out of your salon experience, we recommend arriving promptly and communicating your expectations with your colorist to determine the accurate amount of time needed to achieve your goals. Additionally, it’s always helpful to come with clean, dry hair and any reference photos to guide the color consultation process.

Additional Salon Services Offered

Aveda Bethesda offers a wide range of services apart from color! Your professional hairstylist can offer you a wash, hair cut, highlights, toner, blow dry, styling, and conditioning treatments for hair health.
