The Loveliest Shades Of The Season
By Keune | February 8th, 2019
Love is everywhere in February! As stylists, we see more clients gracing our chairs to get their cuts and colors. Perhaps they are looking to spruce up their styles before a big night out or they might even stop in the salon to look for gifts for loved ones. Share a little extra love, taking inspiration from these shades of the season.
Perfectly Pastel-y Pink
If your client is already on the blonde spectrum, adding a splash of pink is easy. Keune North America Creative Ambassador George Alderete explains why this shade works well across all tones. “The variations of blush and pink tones in these combinations will continue to trend with today’s clients’ requests. Pink tones can be forgiving for the array of skin tone and a wide range of hair colors.”
For clients with darker levels, consider bumping up their highlights. Or add an all over wash of pink to accentuate their tone! When pre-lightening to prep for these shades George advises to “evaluate your starting level and any previous color history. My favorite is Keune Ultimate Blonde, Cream Blonde. During the pre-lightening process using 1/8th-inch sections is a must with a foil isolation method for optimal control. Pacing yourself with a steady and timely manner will give you the best results. I do this because I always think of the quality of time for the best-desired result without compromising the integrity.”
For a shade that will stand the test of time, add Keune LTE in Semi Soft Pink after the pre-lightening process!
Looking for just a dash of color? Place your pink accordingly! Add Keune Color Craving or Keune LTE Semi Soft Pink at the roots or in a peek-a-boo placement for a splash of color that will add interest to your client’s style!
Maintaining The Color
Maintaining a brand new hue is just as important as the process it took to achieve it. At the back bowl, Creative Ambassador Keune North America, George Alderete recommends using Keune CARE Color Brillanz Shampoo and Color Brillanz Conditioner to gently cleanse and prolong the life of their color. Talking to your clients about home-care is also imperative to the longevity of their new color. Instruct them that taking home this Shampoo/Conditioner duo is essential!
Gloss It Up
Adding a sheer gloss to any finished color is the best way to send it off into the world. With grease-proof definition and Keune’s Multi Vitamin Complex to energize and nourish the hair, what’s not to love about BLEND Gloss Spray?
Pump Up The Volume
Whether your client needs to add volume to their style on the daily or is looking for a way to set apart their day to night style, BLEND Volume Powder is the perfect way to create a backcombing effect to the hair that will last all day and night!
This season, be sure to place your most loved products at the forefront of your station.
