is color pricing exact?
what can I expect to pay?
Chemical services are custom design work, so we will give you an estimate after we have curated your hair plan.
We have a simplified service menu so it’s easier for you to book. All services are customized and start at a base rate, in the description of your service we go into detail on how your investment is priced.
Our prices reflect the value we add to our community. We do not cut any corners, we hold ourselves to a higher standard in this industry and we take chemical safety seriously because we do not want to harm our clients.
What are your hours?
Tuesday-Friday with the following hours:
Wednesday- Friday 9:30am-5pm
Alternating Thursdays 2pm-7pm
Why do your prices say starting at or +?
Everyone's hair is different! All services are tailored to each individual to provide the best results - depending on your hair and desired results, this can sometimes take extra product and/or extra time. Some curly haircuts are performed on very long or thick hair and take twice as much product. Some color services are more dramatic and need 4 extra bowls of color. Recent removal of a protective style will need proper detangling and extended cleansing. Any additional charges are to cover this product and time cost.
How should I wear my hair to my appointment?
Whether you're receiving a Curly Haircut, styling session or color service, I'll be able to provide you with the best results if you've washed your hair recently. Day 1-3 hair is required, and please make sure your hair is completely dry when you arrive to your appointment. Pease refrain from wearing your hair in a ponytail, pineapple, bun, clips etc to your appointment. Some light product in the hair is fine (please refrain from using Shea Moisture or CurlSmith leading up to your appointment). If you plan to remove a protective style right before your appointment or have not detangled your in a few days, please let me know so that timing can be adjusted to accomodate you.
Why isn't there a M.XI phone number?
We work independently from the check-in process to check out, making phone communication a challenge. Our goal is give our guests and families our undivided attention during our time spent both in salon and at home. We look forward to offering that same level of attention when we finally meet you!
Do you offer consultations?
Yes! Our consultations are 15 minutes and $25. We'll be sure to ask all the right questions so you feel at home.
Do you cut children's or men's hair?
YES! For the littles - We’d love to set them on a path to healthy hair for life. We just ask that they be able to sit still for long periods of time and that no other siblings accompany you to the appointment so that we can teach both parent and child without interruption.
Do you offer texture altering services?
No, we don't. At M.XI we are in the business of empowering people to embrace themselves as they are. For that reason, we do not offer perms or relaxer services.
Do you sell products in your salon?
We have a small curated lineup of retail but mainly sell on our online shop via our affiliate partners.
related to permanent make up
what is microshading?
Microshading is the newest trend in eyebrow semi-permanent makeup, which is constantly evolving in technique. It combines both Microblading and Shading, creating the best of both worlds! In addition to our signature Microblading pattern, the Shading method is similar to a traditional tattoo, which uses an application of tiny dots of pigment that is inserted into the skin. This method creates the soft, feathery headstrokes of Microblading and the fullness and definition of Shading.
what is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique that involves using tiny, fine-point needles that make up a small, disposable blade. The needle finely scratches the surface of the skin, creating featherweight strokes on the epidermis layer of the skin.
The technique creates thin, crisp lines giving the illusion of realistic, natural hair strokes. With this technique, our artists can create a natural light finish to a bold brow look.
what is ombre?
The ombré powder fill method is more similar to a traditional tattoo, and involves the application of thousands of tiny dots of pigment, inserted into the skin, gradually building up a colour and defined shape.
If you are someone with oily or combination skin, or who fills in your brows regularly with pencil or shadow, then this is the method for you! It mimics the look of filled in brows, without all the effort each morning.
