What is a toner? And why do I need one?
We come across this question a lot in the salon, as sometimes it can feel like your paying extra for something that you don't see.
A toner is the difference between brassy tiger stripes and beautifully blended highlights, find out more here….
What is a toner?
A toner is a type of colour that’s applied to neutralise brassy/yellow tones after lightening. We need to see the colour that we'll be neutralising first, so that's why you'll find us running off into the back room to mix your toner after rinsing off your foils! A toner can be applied on towel dried hair or dry hair.
Why do I need one?
Whenever a lightener or bleach is applied it starts to lift out natural or artificial colour, but at the same time brings out any underlying warmth. Everyone has some degree of natural warmth in their hair, but as a quick rule of thumb, people with amber flecks around their pupils have more warmth than a person with flat brown/blue eyes. Dark artificial dyes contain extra warmth, which is why going from box colour black to blonde is impossible in one sitting!
Is a toner bad for my hair?
A toner is another chemical treatment yes, but the toners we use are full of ceramides (which smooth the cuticle and makes your hair look silky and shiny). Our toners do not contain any ammonia, as we aren't lightening the hair, just depositing colour. Your hair will actually feel healthier after a toner compared to just a lightening service. If you decided to opt for our VIP Bond Ultim8 colour upgrade, the treatment will be added to your toner too, meaning you get double VIP treatment!
Is there one toner for everyone?
No! We have a dispensary of over 25 different toners, all of which are intermixable to specifically neutralise the underlying warmth and give you a personalised colour suited to your skin tone. Whether it be platinum, ashy, pearl, dusky pink, caramel or honey blonde, there's a toner for everyone.
How long does a toner last?
A toner can last from 2-6 weeks, dependant on the colour and the integrity of the hair. The more porous or damaged the hair, the quicker the toner will fade, although having a colour lock treatment will help. The lighter and cooler the toner, the quicker it will fade, so those platinum white blondes and steely greys turn out to be high maintenance and may need toning every couples of weeks. During your consultation we will discuss these issues with you, so no nasty surprises!
How do I prolong my toner?
The best way to prolong your toner is to not wash your hair so often! Once your hair has been lightened, it's in a fragile state, so by washing everyday not only is going to fade your colour quicker, it's also going to dry out your hair and remove all of your natural oils. Another great tip is to use a toning shampoo and conditioner. We stock a variety of different strength toning shampoos, conditioners and masks and we can prescribe the perfect one for you.

The product protects bonds in the hair to keep it looking and feeling healthier and more nourished for longer whilst preventing hair breakage and maintaining the hair colour, helping against colour fade.

Does your hair go limp & flat? Do you have to wash your hair everyday?
Try the Tulip way to wash your hair for a couple of weeks and see the difference it makes!
1. Brush your hair before you jump in the shower (this stimulates the scalp and removes loose hairs).
2. Wet your hair and rub a 20p sized blob of shampoo between your fingers. Apply to your scalp (not your hair!) and massage using circular motions. Rinse.
3. Repeat step 2. (This is the most important step!) This second wash lifts and removes oils from the hair and scalp and leaves your hair feeling squeaky clean.
4. Next apply a 10p sized amount of conditioner through the ends (any hair below your ears) and comb through with a Tangle Teezer to detangle. Rinse well.
5. Squeeze the excess water from your hair and wrap or pat dry with a towel (microfibre is the best!) Any ruffling will cause the cuticle to raise and make your hair frizzy!
6. Have fabulous hair!

Tulip Hair was thrilled to be personally invited to the ghd Eclipse launch in Birmingham this week. We had a great night watching fab stylists taking to the stage to show off exactly what the new styler could do.
As shown in some of the pictures above the new Eclipse stylers can tackle even the toughest afro hair. This is due to the revolutionary new technology:
We were lucky enough to get an Eclipse styler in our goodie bag after the event so pop into Tulip Hair to get yours hands on a pair and see the difference. We promise you'll love them, we are hooked already!

New ghd Eclipse
The new innovation in hair straightening has arrived!
It's been 12 years since the launch of the very first Good Hair Day ('ghd' for short) straightening irons. The company didn't advertise their product for the first two years after they were released, instead used the performance in salons to create a buzz and word of mouth quickly spread that these were the best straighteners out!
Although the slightly pricey £120 price tag (this was 12 years ago!) shocked a lot of people, once you tried your friends/sisters/hairdressers ghds you were hooked!
I, having started in the hairdressing industry 10 years ago, began to witness the most extraordinary scenes in December. Men coming into salons that they would not even step into normally, gasping:
"Do you sell those straighteners? HDDs? HGDs? Those ones that are £120? My wife is desperate for them, thats all she wants for Christmas!"
We were constantly sold out, as soon as we had a delivery, they were gone.
Fast forward back to the present and every woman on the planet has heard of ghd. 99% of customers that walk through my salon door own a pair, some even two (different colours of course!) I have mothers coming into the salon that tell me their daughters are moving away to university and they are gutted...... Because they are taking their ghds!
So why am I telling you all of this?
Because ghd have done something even more extraordinary, they have completely redesigned their styler and its the most futuristic yet!
Here's a little tease....
...... but check back for more info soon!
