A hair colorist changes the color of the hair with reactive chemicals. Using an application tool, such as a brush or wand, the hair colorist applies a solution that will lighten or darken the hair. Hair colorists must be good communicators in order to reach an understanding about the desired outcomes and looks for their clients.
Hair colorists are licensed cosmetologists who specialize in altering the color or tint of their clients’ hair. Hair coloring is a typical part of any cosmetology or beauty training program, and the general cosmetologist licensure exam tests candidates on their coloring skills. A stylist who wishes to further specialize in hair coloring can take advantage of continuing education courses offered at cosmetology schools or through hair care product manufacturers.
