Skin tests

If you’re a new client or have not had colour services within the past 6 months, we are likely to invite you in for a skin test. We also know that, COVID-19 can generate an increased risk of allergic reactions to colour. 

For safety reasons, we will require some clients to come in for a skin test at least 48 hours in advance of their appointment.  Where we consider skin tests to be necessary, they are a legal requirement, as allergic reactions to colour can result in serious injury or death, and we could be prosecuted if we don’t follow Health & Safety at work legislation.

How do I get started?

Please email colouropenbarbers@gmail.com with the following information:

  1. Your natural hair colour
  2. Your current hair colour
  3. Whether you have previously coloured your hair, and if so, when & what with. 
  4. Your current hair length (and if you have particularly thick hair) 
  5. Your desired hair colour(s). 
  6. Feel free to include photos of your hair and / or reference images of what you would like.

Following your email, Mable will decide if we can book you in for a service right away – in which case we will email you a link so you can book it yourself and we will advise you of the length of service required and also of what the sliding scale price range will be. Alternatively, we may invite you in for a free 15 minute consultation with Mable and she will then advise you on which appointment you require.
