The Best Hair Colour Salon Near Me

Milton Keynes




Which Hair Colour is Right For Me?

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a new hair colour - although naturally it should be one that you love! Your Blonde Envy expert will assess your skin tone, eye colour and chat to you to understand your personality and lifestyle to help choose your perfect hair colour and tone. 

Do I Need a Patch Test?

Thankfully, allergic reactions to hair colour are quite rare, but they can happen at any time and for a wide range of reasons which could include a recent illness, a change in medication or hormonal imbalances. 

It is important that if you haven't had a colour service with us before or it's been more than six months since your last colour service with us, we carry out a simple patch test 48 hours prior to your hair colour service. 

What Is Balayage?

One of the most sought-after hair colour services in recent times is balayage, but it can cause confusion for many clients - including how to pronounce it (bah-lay-ahge)!

Balayage is the French term for the technique of highlighting where the hair colour is hand-painted in vertical sections throughout your hair. Your Blonde Envy colourist will blend different shades to give a finish which is subtly darker at the roots than the ends, giving a less obvious root regrowth when your hair begins to grow again. Balayage is a popular low maintenance hair colour option. 

Can I Have a Hair Colour During Pregnancy?

Congratulations! According to the NHS, colouring your hair during pregnancy and breastfeeding is safe, due to the low levels of chemicals making contact with your skin. Many pregnant women wait until after the first trimester to have their hair coloured but please read the official NHS guidelines for colouring your hair when pregnant.

I'm Under 16, Can I Have My Hair Coloured at a Blonde Envy Salon?

We do not offer hair colour for clients under the age of 16. Why not take the extra time to search Pinterest or social media and get some inspiration for a hair colour you'll really love!

How Much Will My Hair Colour Cost? 

Our stylists have different skill levels and are graded according to the amount of experience & expertise they have had in the hairdressing industry. This is reflected in the price of each service. During your hair colour consultation we will be able to quote for your hair colour appointment based upon your chosen Blonde Envy stylist and service. You can find the prices of our blonde hair packages here.

Can I Get Platinum Blonde Hair In One Appointment?

Please be aware that a major hair colour transformation, such as transitioning from very dark hair to a platinum blonde hair colour, takes time, patience and money. It will often take more than one appointment to allow us to lift the colour of your hair safely, without damaging the condition of your hair.

During your complimentary hair colour consultation your Blonde Envy expert will assess the condition of your hair to make sure it is healthy enough to cope with a dramatic colour change. 

Do You Offer Olaplex With Hair Colour?

Of course we do! We love Olaplex both as an addition to your hair colour service and as a stand alone salon treatment to nourish, repair and protect hair from damage. We even offer a range of Olaplex home hair care products to keep your hair healthy and strong in between salon visits. 

Do You Offer Vivid Hair Colours?

We offer all the colours under the rainbow at the Blonde Envy Salons from pretty pastel pinks, vibrant reds, sea greens and stunning magenta hair shades. 

Our colourists can create stunning hair colour effects such as hidden panels of rainbow tones, vivid colour melts and beyond - simply show your Blonde Envy colourist the look you are going for and we'll make it work for you.
