Assuming we are talking about for hairdressing then I am incredulous at the all-in cost of your hairdo. A couple of hours travel, cost of travel plus fee...totals what ? And all for someone to stick some cochineal in your hair ? dave
Hairdressing is a simple cut and dry- what we are talk about is colouring; to find someone that is not only knowledgeable about hair but also understands what the client wants is a rarety.

Coming out of the salon, not only do I look good, but I have also spent a few hours enjoying myself. Is it worth the time and money? Yes, absolutely.

I also appreciate that I am no longer redecorating my bathroom with Clairol #6, missing most of the back of my head, screaming at the puppy that got in and wants her hair coloured too... all to end up with a multitude of shades that just looks hideous.

I am incredulous at the time and effort spent travelling to an english-speaking hair-dresser rather than try to pick up the local language.
The op asked for an "English speaking hair color specialist" and we are answering her question. If I wanted to go "local" and wanted a good job done- then I better start those Italian lessons, because that is what they speak in the salon closest to me. Yet, I live in a predominently French speaking neighbourhood and all this is in canton Zh where they speak?

Women have a special relationship with their hairdresser and those of us who have "found someone" are absolutley devoted to them... it might sound silly, but that is the way it is.
