VIVO Promise & No-Surprise Guarantee

What is a Root Fade?

A root fade is a technique to blend out natural root colour. It is applied like a standard root colour application however once it reaches the desired point of the hair the stylist will weave out sections like a balayage to ‘fade’ out the roots so they blend out. Roots can be blended out as far as the individual would like from around a quarter to even halfway down the hair. A root fade allows the client to be able to take on which ever colour they like without the maintenance and even allows the client to try different colours with the comfort of still having the roots exposed to suit the individual's skintone/eyebrow colour.

Will it suit me?

This technique is very versatile and can be done in different ways to create multiple looks, we can customise your look to ensure it suits your preferred style.

Do I need a specific hair type to suit this look?

Absolutely not! This look can be done with any hair colour, length, texture and style.

Is it a high maintenance style?

Not at all! This colouring technique is extremely low maintenance as any regrowth will fade seamlessly. Depending on your initial colour and desired result, you may want to get the coloured section touched up with toner every few weeks to keep it fresh, but repeat lightening is not necessary. So in the long run a root fade is more budget-friendly  than foils or full colour.

Are there any extra charges?

All essentials like shampoo, head massage and styling are already included in the package price. However, if you have long (below shoulder) and/or very thick hair, and/or extended regrowth, an extra charge from $12 would apply to cover the cost of the additional colouring product.

If you require lightening to your ends, we recommend purchasing the Balayage Package or the Colour Contouring Package. If you are unsure about which package will meet your needs, book in for a FREE, no obligation consultation. Alternatively, if you do purchase a different package, any additional costs can be paid in salon.

We will advise you of all additional costs before we start - or you don't have to pay the extra.

In addition, if you already have colour in your hair, we advise you to come in for a free 15 minute consultation. If colour correction or pre-lightening services are required our stylists can advise you of any additional costs at the time of your consultation.

When can I have my appointment?

Although opening hours vary slightly per salon, every VIVO salon is open Tuesday through Saturday. Late night and morning appointments are available.
