Hair cut before dye?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have a quick question for anyone who can answer it. I'm redying my hair, same color as always black, but I also want a cut. I need a small trim and want to add layers and always want to cut my bangs into a side swoop (is that what it's called?). So the question is to I dye the hair first and then get the hair cut or can I get the hair cut first and then dye? Does it really matter? Any advice?!

Usually when I get my hair done... they dye it first and then cut.

I really dont know if it matters or not lol

Well, you could get it cut after dying it so that you get rid of any dried uber-coloured ends (as ends tend to go darker than the rest cuz they are more damaged....but I dont know with black)....or you could get it cut first so that you dont have the chance of running out of hairdye (if you have long/thick hair)....


Either way theres a pro and con...haha...

Do whatever happens (if you keep putting off dying hair and then you randomly get a haircut you will obviously dye it after the haircut )

if you're just touching up your roots it doesn't matter. but most salons prefer you do your color and then cut. so as to get rid of any damaged ends, etc.

If you're hair's long enough that'd they'd have to whip up extra dye, then I'd cut it first and save the product (and $).

Yeah, you should do it before, so any ends that get damaged in the colouring process will be cut off as well.

Re: Hair cut before dye?

I agree with all of the above. The chemicals can further damage your hair and cutting the ends after will make you look much more polished and keep those ends tidy.

If you are getting the same style and color it doesn't matter
