What Is a Hair Colorist
A hair colorist helps their clients achieve enhanced, color-treated hairstyles or looks. They alter the tint or color of various textures of hair by skillfully applying reactive chemicals with a brush and determining how long it needs to set. Many hair colorists mix their own formulas to ensure their coloring is unique. A hair colorist or hair color specialist works in a salon and builds up clientele through networking and referrals. They keep up with current hairstyle trends as well as knowledge of new equipment, coloring products, and techniques. Most importantly, they’re able to listen to, understand, and fulfill clients’ requests. Like makeup or other areas of cosmetology, practicing hair coloring requires a state license.
