We all know the hair salon drill. The aspiring model/receptionist directs us to the changing room, where we weigh the wisdom of removing all our street clothes and wearing their robe, against just slipping the robe on OVER our clothes and taking the cover-up approach. Wonder no more. The answer to the dilemma is this: take your clothes off and wear the robe.
Here’s why: hair sprays and coloring solutions contain products that can discolor your clothes, and any staining that occurs is permanent, just like your hair color.
These products can seep under, around, over and through towels and other cover-up gear, damaging your clothes irreversibly. Even an unintended splatter or spray can hit the mark on your pants or skirt, doing damage that you may be unaware of until you clean or launder the item.
