"Mermaid Hair" refers to the vivid color work using Pravana Vivids, Joico Intensities and more! Jordan is currently only taking on selected full-head projects at this time. Read a little bit more about the requirements to find out if having Mermaid Hair is right for you!

Your hair should be in relatively healthy condition prior to the process as its does require lightening for any vivid service. We may not always be able to get you to where you want to be in the first appointment, but we are willing to work our way towards your goal color wth your cooperation, patience, and investment in your hair and home care routine. You must inform your stylist of ANY color on your hair prior to your appointment, including any professional or unprofessional "box" color that has ever been on your hair. Knowing as much as we can about your hair will allow us to formulate chemicals precisely and customized for your hair and its needs. Removing old color is possible, but may become a corrective color process.

Mermaid hair pricing begins at $200 and up depending upon the time and products used. Estimates are only done through booked consultations, and a $100 cash deposit is required to secure an appointment space for a new client. The deposit is non-refundable should the client cancel less than 7 days before their scheduled appointment, otherwise the deposit will go towards the final cost of the service.

At home care is crucial to maintain the vivid color of Mermaid Hair. These are the requirements as the vivid colors will typically hold up to about 6-12 washes for darker colors, and 2-6 washes for silver or pastel colors:

  • Only wash your hair once or twice a week. You may still shower every day with the use of a shower cap, or use dry shampoo and restyle every day, but washing, conditioning, or wetting your hair will pull the pigment out quickly. Avoid getting the hair wet while swimming. Chlorinated pools are a no-no!

  • Use ice cold water to wash your hair. Hot or even warm water will pull the pigment out. Most clients will either choose to wash their hair in their sink or to use a handheld shower head with a hose to isolate the hair and not get the cold water on their bodies.

  • Use quality salon products at home! Pravana Vivids Shampoo, Conditioner and Color Lock Spray are great for maintaining your color as they are meant to work hand in hand with the line! A deep conditioner, smoothing serum and thermal protectant are also highly recommended. Why would you use grocery store products on your expensive and beautiful mermaid hair?!

  • Avoid sun exposure. UV rays have been known to pull the pigment out of hair, so be sure to cover the hair with a hat or scarf or the color can be bleached right our from sun exposure.

  • Pastel, gray/silver or light colors must be applied over completely platinum white hair. Many clients are simply not candidates for these colors if their hair is damaged, colored, or very dark in color. 

Mermaid hair is fun, attention grabbing and beautiful! It takes a brave person to make the leap into vivid color, but most clients will tell you the compliments and attention are worth it!
