Now that we’re heading into prom season, are you letting your clients and community know about the latest colour and hair styles they can get at your salon?
We speak with two experts on what’s trending for special occasion hair.
New Hair Colours for Prom
Think about your teenage client who is getting ready to make a style statement at the prom. What else is more perfect than a high-impact, low commitment hair colour they can try out? The new Matrix Color Graphics does just this, as a semi-permanent, ready-to-use colour that does not request developer. Available in five inter-mixable shades, there are countless creative possibilities—perfect for the young, experimental fashion-forward client.
“Younger clients are the future client in the salon,” notes Alex Chabot, artistic director of the Matrix Designer Team. “Semi-permanent colour is a good entry into the world of colour for trendy young clientele. Right now, lavender and coral are very popular shades for girls, overall.”
Add Service Possibilities with Extensions
“You can also prepare hair extensions with colour,” says Chabot. Having pre-coloured hair extensions on hand allows stylists to “show clients what’s happening and try on a few colours by simply placing pieces against the hair.” He even suggests renting or selling the extensions, based on a client’s budget. “They can always reuse, wash and return the hair extensions,” he adds.
Give Her Hairstyling Support
A style that’s done just out of the salon will probably go through some weathering as the Big Night happens. Equip your client with everything she needs to maintain her salon-perfect style. Send her on her way with recommended retail products that she can stash in her purse and teach her how to refresh her hairstyle. Paul Mitchell limited edition Big Night Out kits are available in purse-friendly sizes, from Fast Form Cream Gel to Stay Strong Express Dry Strong Hold Hairspray. With all the beauty essentials, your client will thank you for having them covered!
