A. If you’re going for a straightforward single process color service (ie: all over color) then you can choose to either cut or color first. On the other hand, if you’re getting highlights, a multi-tonal service or are changing the length of your hair dramatically then it’s best to cut first, color second. Why? Because your stylist can tailor your color to the shape and movement of your new cut, which delivers a more balanced and customized end result.
