Skin Testing Policy​

A skin test is required at least 48 hours in advance of a colouring service to determine if you could be allergic to the chosen colour during your consultation.

The 48 hour period is because it takes up to that long for your body to develop an immune response.

Failure to attend a skin test will result in your appointment for your colour service being cancelled.

During the skin test you will be asked to fill in an online form which asks various questions.

We will also determine which colour will be used in the colour service and that colour will be used to test on your arm. We can terst up to 2 colours on each arm if needed.

All the information is then written in your notes so we have a record of what we have used.

If you do develop an irritation/scabbing/soreness then you must inform us. This doesn’t mean you can’t have a colour, but we will need to choose something else.

If you have any questions please do ask your stylist.

We ask you to remain in the salon for 45 minutes for the test. However if you need to leave we cannot be responsible for any colour getting on your clothing.

Our manufacturer states that we need to apply the colour test to the crook of your elbow or your wrist.
