    Helping costing a new salon set up!

    If people can give me costs of what they are paying to run their salons now though, that will be very useful. If I can gauge a rough cost for utilities it'd be really useful.

    Skin tests advice

    I’m planning on doing the patch test sessions the week before we are due to be allowed to start back, the clients will be told they are not allowed to put anything else chemical on their hair after the patch test so even if the test is done 3 weeks before I colour their hair it will be fine...

    Colour reducers versus colour strippers

    Have you used Wella's Colour Renew yet? I wondered what the results were from that. I have heard it is good but in the process of moving over to Wella so haven't used it yet. Sorry guys only just seen other posts on Wella Renew. Some good, some sitting on the fence. Any more thoughts be good...

    Opinions on IQ product range

    Thanks Ronray. Now you have mentioned Kitoko, I have seen that, in fact I'm sure I have used a few bits of theirs in the past. I'm a nightmare for using a bit of this and a bit of that. I guess that comes with being freelance. I have googled it all though and yes it looks good, I can't help...

    Opinions on IQ product range

    Thankyou for your reply. I’m now considering biting the bullet and going back to Wella. I left because it got so expensive but having reassessed and in the process of rebranding I think it could be worth taking the leap back. You don’t seem blown away by IQ even though you highlighted some...

    NXT colour reviews?

    Hey, I have recently moved over to NXT from wella, for exact same reasons, cost and tube size. I was worried as reviews weren’t great that I read, however, I’ve been really pleasantly surprised.

    High lift tint?

    Hey, I believe you will need to strip the colour out with bleach first, as tint won't lift tint, even high lift tint. Use bleach with a med peroxide as lifting it slowly will get a cleaner lift than using a high peroxide and doing it too quick, once you have lifted the colour out you can then...
