Where do you go to dye your hair, get highlights or just a toner/rinsage? No need to ask your girls constantly because we have got a compiled list of the trending colourists in Cairo, some maybe new to you and some maybe classics but once you find one you trust we recommend that you don’t let go, and consider yourself a lucky girl because a good colourist is hard to find trial and error is inevitable to get the right one for your hair type, ask lots of questions, show them pictures and if they tell you it won’t be good for you to try an extreme transformation, then don’t subtle changes over time will not damage your hair as much as going straight from brown to blonde.
