Hair Color Services

Going to a hair salon to have your hair colored can cost you a lot of money. According to, the average cost of hair color at a salon ranges from $65 to $200 or more. However, the hair stylist may charge you an additional $35 to $150 to wash, blow out, and style your hair. This is why many people choose to DIY it at home with a box of hair dye that doesn’t give them the same quality results.

Fortunately, you don’t need to choose between a damaging box of at-home hair dye or a pricey salon. By scheduling your hair color appointment at Hays Academy, you can have an affordable hair color appointment at a professional beauty salon while helping beauty school students get the practical experience they need to finish their education. All services at Hays Academy are supervised by professional educators with many years of industry experience. We offer all of the hair coloring services you’d expect at any professional salon for much less than what you’ll find elsewhere.

Temporary Hair Color

Temporary hair color offers a great way to try out a new hair color without committing. Most temporary hair colors wash out after only one or two washes. It is a perfect option for coloring your hair for a special event, such as a Halloween party.

Semi-Permanent Hair Color Services

Semi-permanent hair dye lasts between 5 and 7 washes. Demi-permanent hair dye lasts between 6 – 8 weeks. Depending on how often you wash your hair, if you swim in a chlorinated pool, and other factors, these less permanent hair color options last for around a month or so.

Long Lasting Hair Color

Permanent hair color lasts until you strip it out, dye it, or it grows out. It is a long lasting solution for altering your hair color and covering up greys. Most people opt to have their hair coloring appointment scheduled for every four to six weeks to prevent roots from showing. We offer a complete range of permanent hair colors, from natural to bright shades of primary colors.

Ombre Hair Color

Ombre hair color goes from a light to a darker shade. As a hair school, we embrace the opportunity to create non-traditional hairstyles, including ombre, rainbow colors, and more. If you have a funky idea that you’d like to try out, we’re happy to help you transform your hair with hair color.

Highlights and Lowlights

In addition to full hair color services, we offer highlights and lowlights, which can add a new dimension of color to your hair. Many clients like to opt for highlights in the summer and lowlights in the winter. No matter what time of year it is, we’re happy to color highlights or lowlights into your hair.

Whether you want to cover up grey hair or go for a new look, we can help. Call us today or visit our booking page to schedule your appointment with one of our cosmetology school students. You can reach our Hays location at (785) 628-6624 or our Salina location at (785) 833-2280.

    After graduating high school I was looking for an amazing school where I could start my career. I toured at Hays Academy and it was the perfect fit for me. After starting they soon became family and I created amazing relationships with fellow students. Hays Academy provided a great learning environment to create a foundation in skills that I will carry with me to the salon. In the past year my life has changed for the best and it is because of my experience at Hays Academy.
