z.one concept: 4 WAYS TO UTILIZE SMOOTHIES INTENSIFIER SHADES

4 WAYS TO UTILIZE SMOOTHIES INTENSIFIER SHADES

To help you kick off your clients’ summer hair with all the right shades, z.one concept has brought in color expert, Kelly Leigh. Utilizing milk_shake Smoothies Intensifiers, Kelly shares how you can have a lot fun, get creative and give your clients some major hair love!

[1] PASTELS The ever-growing trend of pastels is now so much easier for you to create with milk_shake Smoothies Intensifiers. To achieve a wide range of pastel tones, form the base of your formula with Smoothies specials – Powder and/ or Pearl. Just add 1 to 5 grams of chosen Intensifier, depending on the mixture, thickness of the hair and outcome desired. Mix them together and create amazing custom shades for your clients!

[2] FASHION TONES The possibilities to create vibrant tones with the Smoothies Intensifiers are endless. Depending on how vibrant or deep you wish your client’s fashion tone to be, mix only the Intensifiers or add them to other Smoothies shades. Almost any color you dream up is possible just by adding the 4 Intensifiers to the Specials or any other Smoothies shades.

[3] CORRECTORS If your client’s hair has a strong or underlying orange tone that is in need of correcting, add up to 1g of Blue to your formula. Trying to achieve that perfect white? Blue is the answer again! Be sure to reference the color wheel and use the opposite color to correct the unwanted tones. When using the intensifiers to correct, keep a close eye on your client’s hair. As always, use your best judgment based on the integrity and porosity of your client’s hair.

[4] INTENSIFY TONES Have you ever wished for a tone to be a little brighter? Now you can achieve super bright and even more intense copper, red, and violet! By adding Intensifiers into your formula, you’re putting in more tone with no level. Can you say happy clients?! The 4 Intensifiers will deepen any shade in the milk_shake smoothies collection by adding more warmth to the exotic series or greater intensity to Mahogany. Don’t forget, mix ratio of Intensifiers is up to 50% of your color formula, depending on intensity of desired outcome.

Get started creating limitless colors for your clients with the Smoothies Intensifier series!

5 Reasons You Should Always Measure Color

PSC 5 Reasons you should always measure color

If you’ve been a stylist for more than a minute, you’ve had one of those busy days, with multiple color clients, processing at different times and possibly running late. The temptation [the struggle is real] to just “eye ball” color measure, usually because you have done it a thousand times. The reality is, measuring is crucial to on-point results. To boost your hair measure motivation, BRIAN GRIEVE, Director of Education z.one concept North America, shares 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS MEASURE COLOR.

  1. ITCHING SCALP The loathed itchy scalp. It’s one of the more irritating outcomes of failing to measure color accurately. CLASS IS IN SESSION: This occurs mainly when the use of scales has been overlooked, potentially causing your client’s hair color to become more aggressive. Innovative and advanced color formulations require precise measuring. Measuring = no itchy scalps!
  2. COLOR FADE Say it ain’t so! As a seasoned hair stylist, at some point, you have seen the look of color fade disappointment on a client’s face. CLASS IS IN SESSION: When there is an imbalance of the color and emulsion/developer mix ratio, fade happens. With the hair cuticle more exposed, color fades faster. This could happen with any color choice [reds, coppers & gray cover being most vulnerable], but you can nip color fade like a boss.
  3. COLOR RESULTS Another color casualty. On many occasions, the color is dull, lacking in consistent shine and often a translucent gray cover is the outcome. This often leads to your client raising dreaded color questions like, “Was that the same color you used?” CLASS IS IN SESSION: Color correctly measured delivers a consistent experience to your client, with much more vibrancy and intense shine reflect. Ultimately, it’s a win-win.
  4. CONSISTENCY Think hair history. How many times have you checked a client’s color history to remind you of a formula? Most of the time, right? The key to consistent color is consistent precision. CLASS IS IN SESSION: Failure to measure that same formula, each time, makes the art of recreating the beautiful color for your client next to impossible. No more, “My color was so vibrant and shiny last time… is there something wrong?” You got this!
  5. SAVING MONEY It’s all about the money, money, money… Not completely, but it is a well-known fact that a big drain on profits for any stylist or salon is the amount of color washed down the sink! CLASS IS IN SESSION: By consistently practicing the use of a scale, the ability to measure smaller amounts of accurate color and emulsion/developer increases will help prevent the wasting and washing away color. Did you hear that? A scale that saves you money and won’t make you cry [well, maybe happy tears].

We all know embracing change can be challenging. But, often the smallest of changes bring the biggest benefits. Measuring is definitely one of those, resulting in greater hair for your clients and even better business for you!
