            If you regularly dye your hair, you know that a root touch-up is a great way to keep a dye job looking fresh, without having to pay for a complete coloring. Root touch-ups work perfectly to hide growth without having to sacrifice the quality of your hair coloring. And, one of the things we thinks is great about root touch-ups is that they can be done at a salon or at home, making them one of the easiest hair treatments available.

            As a general rule, hair color grows out in a month to a month and a half, though it depends on how fast your hair grows. While this four to six weeks allows a decent amount of time between salon visits, the time can be lengthened significantly with a few simple steps.

            Root touch-ups at home can be done one of two ways. The easiest way is to purchase a root touch-up kit at a store or salon, which will contain everything needed to dye just the roots. These kits usually come with appliers so the dye can be placed right on the roots, which uses less dye. The downside to these kits is that they come in very general colors, so there might be a difference between the shade of the roots and the rest of your hair.

            The second way to do a root touch-up is to use a full box of dye. This works well if your original coloring came from a box, since the touch-up will blend and match the rest of your hair. Unfortunately, this usually means there’s a lot of leftover dye. And since regular boxes of hair coloring don’t come with tools to help specifically treat the roots, it can be a messy process.

            The easiest way to get a root touch-up is to go into the salon that did the coloring in the first place. Hair stylists are trained to get grown out roots to match the coloring of the rest of your hair and at the fraction of the cost of a full coloring.

            Having a professional do your root touch-up is especially important for blonde coloring. Blonde is such a dramatic color that it requires touch-ups every few weeks. When the roots grow in dark, they need to be treated and bleached before they can take in the blonde coloring. This is quite a process and we recommend that you leave it to the professionals.

            Another process that we recommend having done by a professional is root touch-ups for highlights. Because highlights vary in size and placing, it can be extremely difficult if you don’t have the training get everything matched up. In the cases of highlights, both coloring and continuity is important.

            If you dye your hair, you will have to make a decision about how to deal with your grown out roots. Whether it’s a regular dye job, bleaching and coloring matching for blonde hair, or renewing highlights, root touch-ups offer a way to keep your hair looking great. Root touch-ups quickly and inexpensively allow your coloring job to look better for a longer amount of time.

Excellent, excellent salon. I have made about 5 or 6 appointments now over the last few months with Rafi and I've only had to give him specifics as to the style I wanted the first time... He's very attentive and knows exactly what I want now, without having to tell him!

SERIOUSLY THE BEST! Rafi is amazing. He is great at natural blonde highlights and cutting my thick, unruly hair! I have been getting highlights for 15+ years and have never found someone as talented as Rafi. His prices are great, the salon is calm, and he is almost always on time. After almost 3 years with Rafi, I don't mind driving to El Cajon for this amazing experience. He always takes care of me!

Rafi is AMAZING! After not being able to find my match in hairdressers, my friend referred me to Rafi at One Salon. Rafi brought me back to the blonde I had been missing from a brunette bayalage. Not only is he amazing with color corrections and highlights, he will listen to what you are wanting to do with your hair and provide his professional opinion to help you find what style is right for you. Recently Rafi cut my long hair to a short A-line, and I can't believe I haven't done it sooner! I'm so happy with my hair. I highly recommend going to Rafi for whatever your hair needs may be!

This salon is one of the best salons I have ever been to, Rafi knows very well what he is doing and I trusted him with my hair and I left his salon very happy and satisfied. He spent his time in the beginning consulting me of what color should I do

I was super worried going in, but Raffi took great care of me. He listened to what I wanted, my concerns and my past experiences at other salons and he did just what I wanted. I got the best color and cut! I am so happy with his work that I am telling all of my friends and family members.
