Why did you write this book?
“It started back 10 years ago when I published some of my work online. It went viral and I have been inundated with messages ever since! I received hundreds of messages from people like you asking me questions on how to dye their hair rainbows like the photos.
This got me searching online for a professional tutorial I could send people to read, as replying to so many emails was a challenge.
I was shocked by what I found.
So many home hair dye tutorials, forums and youtube videos put together by non-professionals who would give terrible advice. It was like the blind leading the blind. I felt there was a massive need for professional information on how to do this type of hair colour.
I realised the problem is hairdressers are very secretive about there formulas and techniques. I couldn’t even find any books on how to do bright colour for apprentice hairdresser’s or hairdresser’s who what to learn something new.
So as a professional with years of experience working with this type of colour I felt it was essential to make this knowledge available to any and everyone.
Every section in the book is there because “you asked me.” Well, not “you” really. But from real live questions. Questions from people who love dyeing their hair bright colours at home. Asking how I change colours so often without damage? How I do pastel colours? How I stop colour fading? And so much more…
Then I answered them all in this book!
Which means no fluff. Just the real answers you want to know.
I have tried to make the guide as simple and easy-to-read and follow as possible. I wrote it as if to my 16 year old self. Before I was a professional and when I was doing awful things to my hair! This book contains everything I wish I could have told myself then.
I have been criticised by others in my field for sharing professional secrets with non-professional home colourists. But I feel if we are happy to sell the dye and bleach to the public, then it is our responsibility to educate people how to use it correctly. Also not everyone has the funds to afford the salon bills. I know as a teenager I didn’t! And other people would be happy to go to the salon, but simply live in areas where there are no hairdressers who offer this kind of colour work, as rainbow colour is not normally taught to hairdressers in collage. (I even had customers who bought the book to give to her hairdresser, so she could follow the guide and do the colour in-salon for her!)
I care about everyones hair, not just the clients who can afford to sit in my chair.
The response to the book has been massively positive. From salon owners even buying it for their staff for training, to virgin hair home users who have never pick up a bottle of dye in their life creating stunning salon standard colour, first time!”
