Hair Colour Cork

When it come to Hair Colour our training never stops. Knowledge is shared between our team and we also educate our clients on their own expectations and reality of what their hair can do.

At Onyx we use high end products when it comes to our colour and retail range. We work with the amazing GOLDWELL, Redken and Matrix colour brands. All our colours are formulated especially for you. We use techniques like contouring and colour morphing to personalise your own colour which can be as natural or vibrant as you please. We also provide complimentary refreshers to every client up to 3 weeks after your original colour service. This could be anything from masking to toners or neutralising and enhancing colour tones.


It is extremely important that we have a thorough consultation before any colour appointment. We provide solutions to any issues you may have had and provide recommendations on what we think would work for you. From skin tone to eye colour and bone structure we will create a colour palette for you.

Hair Colour Cork

First time colour…We understand it is daunting trying to figure out, or what to even ask for when you want to colour your hair. Not every person decides to colour their hair for the same reasons. Some enjoy experimenting with different hair colours, trying new shades for each season. Or simply perhaps you want to enhance your natural hair colour.

Many people are prompted to dye their hair by the discovery of their first grey hair. Whatever the reason behind your decision to colour your hair we are here to assist and guide you all the way through every step of the process. Below are some explanations of colour techniques that we do on a daily basis.


Balayage delivers a healthy looking finish that appears glossy and expensive, which can be worn subtle or bold depending on your preference. Its popularity comes from the fact that it is extremely low maintenance. A balayage will grow out beautifully and very naturally so you do not  get a clear regrowth line. It is a hair colour technique that allows for a sun kissed and very natural look and tends to create shimmers of tones throughout the hair.


Ombre is a hair colouring technique where a darker base colour is gradually lightened along the lengths, usually starting around mid-way, giving a gradual lighter effect. Ombré hair is a colour technique of seamless graduation from darker to lighter, whereas balayage is a highlighting technique.


 The subtlety of this look creates definition and dimensions in the hair throughout the front section, in particular the lengths and ends.The glossy perfection that accompanies this technique avoids the need for a significant transformation involving heavy commitment. It is very similar to balayage but it has a lighter appearance due to the foiling method


A toner enables your hair stylist to customise your colour for you. How? By making it warmer or cooler in tone, and correcting unwanted shades. It is also possible to be able to add a bright pop of a fashion colour like a pastel or vibrant hue, without actually bleaching the hair. In addition, it enables the hair stylist to ensure that you get an even hair colour result from root to tip. Your toner will last longer if you use a professional home care to ensure colour protection and hair health.

Babylights service

 Our tailor-made,  lightening service uses micro-fine babylights to deliver subtle, natural lightness through the hair. Strands so fine they blend into your natural hair colour, this is a perfect way to add a touch of summer to your look. This service generates a multi tonal effect with your natural hair colour.

Platinum Blonde

This is NOT for the faint hearted. This all over brass-defying platinum blonde is perfect for those that want the ultimate blonde.  Your hair will be globally lightened, which results in eliminating your natural colour. This is great for someone who likes to play around with different tones as we can adjust toners for different effects. As this is high impact hair colour, maintenance will need to be done every 6 weeks to obtain an even colour.
