Hair Lightening: Top Service Requested

There’s a new product that might make your life easier—and your business more successful…Skylight.

Sixty-two percent of colorists say highlighting is the #1 service in their salons (Source: 2015 Modern Salon Process Research Study). With Paul Mitchell’s newest blonding product, Skylight, highlights and balayage are easier than ever.

This hand-painting clay lightener eliminates the need for foils and provides an ideal texture for all freehand application techniques with up to seven levels of lift. Check out some of these easy techniques to give your guests the perfect organic, balayage look.

Skylight Sketching   Sketching

  • To create a lived-in, all-over blinding effect, the artist will use a sketching technique on nearly the entire top surface of the section, lightly etching up towards the base.
  • Medium to heavy saturation is used.
  • Ideal for color corrections, big transformations and modernized platinum retouches.

ContouringSkylight contouring

  • Giving shape, definition, and dimension to a haircut.
  • Typically includes lines of varying weights to add licks and sweeps of color on one edge of a section (usually the face-framing edge/side).

Davines: RENEWING & ENERGIZING Hair Everywhere

Davines Renewing and Energizing

Just like the rest of the body, your client’s hair eventually shows signs of aging and, even more devastating, hair loss. For serious hair problems, you need serious hair solutions!

Davines has done just that with their newest NaturalTech family member, RENEWING and the reformulated ENERGIZING. While RENEWING rejuvenates the scalp and restores both health and shine to hair, reformulated ENERGIZING treats and targets hair loss. This dynamic hair duo can literally save the day!

First, let’s talk about RENEWING.

Every salon has clients who suffer from coarse texture to split ends and premature greying [you’re probably thinking of particular clients right now]. That’s where REWEWING comes in to help you help them.

Enriched with an exclusively formulated Hair Longevity Complex containing Spinach, Maqui Berry, and Carnosine, it provides strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and preserving qualities to counter aging. Not only will your client receive preventative care but also the much needed maintenance treattments.

BONUS: You can safely combine RENEWING with other NaturalTech products to fully respond to your clients’ needs. If your client is happy, you’re happy. That’s an easy win-win!

Now, what kinds of renewing can you start doing for your clients today?

RENEWING PRO BOOST SUPERACTIVE – for all scalp types.

A pre-treatment fluid that can be used before any NaturalTech treatment to enhance and increase benefits. A gentle peeling action prepares the scalp by deeply cleaning and toning.

RENEWING SHAMPOO – for all scalp and hair types.

RENEWING CONDITIONING TREATMENT – for all scalp and hair types.

RENEWING SERUM SUPERACTIVE – for all scalp and hair types.

A serum that can be used with other Renewing products to create a longevity regimen. With a strong preventive action, it creates a healthy and balanced scalp for beautiful and vital hair. After the first application, an immediate cosmetic effect is visible in the hairs’ shine and silkiness.

Next up, ENERGIZING.

For your clients who struggle with forms of alopecia or hair prone to falling out, the reformulated treatment is now developed to prevent and treat various types of hair loss. ENERGIZING is exactly what your clients have been waiting for!

With products that not only contain the original caffeine phytoceutical but also the new Hair Energy Complex, formulated with Vitamin B3 and Green Tea Extract, Davines has been able to further prove their dedication to marrying top of the line science with the best ingredients from nature

Let’s do the math really quick. Prevent and treat hair loss + less frustration and tears = turning back the clock for your clients. Who doesn’t want a little time hairlift?
