What is a Bleach and Tone?

A Bleach and Tone at WAVES Salon in The Woodlands requires lifting the hair with a lightener to a desired level and then toning the hair to achieve an all-over solid color, usually a pale blonde or platinum white. This method does not leave any of the existing color in the hair. At WAVES salon, we are experienced with using only the best quality products to give you the desired results you want to see while also maintaining the integrity of the hair.

How Much Does Bleach and Tone Cost in The Woodlands, TX?

The cost of your Bleach and Tone at WAVES Salon in The Woodlands will depend on various factors such as how fast your hair color lifts and the overall health of your hair. The best way to arrive at a price point is to schedule a consultation with one of our highly skilled hair specialists at your convenience.

How Long Does a Bleach and Tone Take?

For the best possible results, we require scheduling a consultation before booking a Bleach and Tone appointment. Achieving a very light or platinum blonde shade while maintaining the health of your hair may require multiple appointments. During this consultation, our hair color specialist will carefully assess various factors, such as your hair length, current color, and desired results, to better determine the amount of time needed for your Bleach and Tone and to address any questions or concerns you might have.

Why Choose Us?


Maintenance for a Bleach and Tone is very important. The length of regrowth will create challenges if it is too long or too short. We recommend getting your Bleach and Tone touched up every 4-6 weeks to ensure there is enough hair to not overlap on your previously lightened hair. If you feel like you will not be able to visit us at WAVES salon that often, please discuss with your stylist about other services that can make you look as blonde as you would like without the commitment of a Bleach and Tone.

  • Avoid Excessive Heat Styling: Minimize the use of hot styling tools to prevent further damage. When needed, use a heat protectant, as mentioned earlier.
  • Cold Rinse: After shampooing and conditioning, rinse your hair with cold water. This helps seal the cuticle and maintain color vibrancy.
  • Professional Maintenance: Continue to visit your stylist for touch-ups and toning as needed to keep your bleach and tone looking fresh.
