The business of colour has never had a more exciting opportunity. With the growth of balayage and more creative colour techniques; the best ever shade choices and formulas and an increasing demand for stunning locks, driven by social media, our salons should be booming.
Remember when salon colour menus were a thrilling list of full-head, half head, T-bar, block colour (someone wake me, I’m drifting off to sleep at the very thought of it!). You’d choose your tone (blonde, brunette or red for the adventurous!) from a shade chart and sit back and wait for the foils to kick in.
If you’re a half decent hairdresser – and I’m sure you are – then I’ll bet you think that each of your clients has a consultation, but do your clients realise that?
As I look back over the year it’s scattered with highlights (no pun intended!) It started with a bang with the launch of Jack Howard at Paul Edmonds, and what a brilliant collaboration it’s been. Working alongside such a caring talented man with a brilliant team where everyone has made me feel so welcome has just been fantastic.
The recent rise of the dandy has got to be a good thing for hairdressers and barbers because it brings with it a huge opening to up-sell products and hair colour to our male clientele.
From this season’s honey rose gold, to chic burnished coppers and the hottest hue du jour, ronze, redheads (or rather hints of red) are having a moment.
