Right now, my hair color is a rich, mocha brown with just a few highlights to give it texture. I love it. And the best part is, I got it done in just about an hour. No-I didn’t color it myself at home, instead I popped over to a hair dye bar called Tint Hair Color Studio in Santa Monica, CA, where they specialize in one thing: coloring hair.
The concept is simple and targeted to the same clientele that would visit a makeup bar or a blow-dry bar: busy women that want to look good in a hurry. So if you need your hair colored in a jiffy, either because you just need a root touch up, need to refresh your color or want a few highlights, then head over to Tint. No appointment necessary. One of three people (the two owners and the manager) will give you a consultation to find out what you need, then mix up your color so that one of their experienced stylists can apply it to your hair. And to ensure you get the same quality color that you would from a master stylist, they also come over several times during the treatment to oversee the process.
Once your hair is rinsed, the stylist takes you over to a vanity area to blow dry and style your own hair (or do what I did-walk out with it wet since I was just going home anyway). This is where the time gets cut, along with a big portion of the cost. After all, their motto is: “We dye. You dry.” It works out great for someone with limited time or budget. Just keep in mind, this isn’t the place to get a drastic hair color makeover-the menu is limited to root touchups, one process color, some highlights (along with touching them up), toner and conditioning treatment. Also, they will blow dry your hair, but that’s an added cost that needs to be requested. Prices start at $49 and go up to about $85 and really you can walk in at any time during their hours of operation. The salon is clean and modern, and they offer you a drink to tide you over during the quick process. Plus, the entire staff is warm and welcoming. It’s a good deal and works great for a woman who never seems to have time.
