Why I stopped going to the hair salon

I was spending a ridiculous amount of money on maintaining my color—so much that I’m embarrassed to even put it in numbers. From the cost of service at my local salon to the need to tip my colorist on every visit (even after she did a terrible job on one occasion), I felt like I was wasting my money and potential. The breaking point for me happened when I was at my salon one Saturday, and I was literally waiting by the receptionist for almost an hour. Meanwhile, I could clearly hear my colorist gossiping with other clients in the main room. That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands. My friend had told me about this at-home hair coloring service called eSalon that was both affordable and easy to use.

The next day, I went online to customize my color, and within a week my color had arrived at my door. It came in a cute blush pink box engraved with my name on it with a set of personalized instructions. I followed the instructions, applied the color, and waited.

The results were fantastic

When it was all said and done, my hair looked gorgeous. The coloring was fierce, bold, and beautiful. The following weekend, I strutted into my former salon and my old colorist was awestruck. I was only there to get my hair trimmed, but it still felt great showing off my new shade. And considering that I was only spending $20 per coloring rather than the—I don’t even want to say how much—I was spending at the salon, my wallet felt happier too!

I usually color my hair every 4 weeks and each time I do it, I’m impressed by just how effortless the process is. I just turn on my favorite TV show, and in under an hour my hair game is looking stronger than ever. Customized color truly does make a difference. I eventually recommended eSalon to my mom—she was skeptical at first, but after I helped her choose her personalized color, she was head over heels and excited to cover her grays. The next time I saw her, she was looking glamorous and audacious. I don’t ever remember seeing a more perfect shade of color on my mom.

Totally worth trying!
