Since lock down a lot of clients (obviously) have a lot of root which on some I’m finding it harder than usual to match up. (Ones that have used purple shampoos, full head bleached etc)
Once Iv lifted the hair Iv completely lost my confidence with Toning blondes. I don’t know why...
Thank you ronray [emoji4] I struggle to see the warmth too.
With the darker cooler colour what tone would you use? I’m conscious of it going flat/khaki and I definitely don’t want anything with warmth [emoji23]
I thought I was going mad!! I personally think it’s silver, I have said when she’s comes back and it’s brassy it’s because it needs doing again. But she just hates that colour.
I was thinking of trying to match it to more her natural with maybe a few darker (5) through it and then...
Iv been h/l this clients hair for about a year.
Naturally she is salt and pepper grey. She cane to me with a flat base 5 on to get more to her natural hair. Iv bleached it with 9% with Olaplex and toned with different variants of ash/violet. Most recently matrix 8v but have used nxt Metallics...
If it turns out blow drying isn’t allowed in any case, we are going to lose a good 10-15 regular clients who come just for blowdries. So money has got to be made up some where.
I think personally I will keep prices the same but they won’t get a blowdry and then if they need a mask charge them...
Thanks everyone - no completely clear guidelines yet.
Also, what is w wry one doing about consultations/skin tests? Obviously there can only be a detain amount of people at 1 time in the salon but as we will be working with a lesser amount of clients, trying to claw back money will be hard, do...
Iv read today that we will have to take the temperature of each client - has anyone bought any thermometers or are there any throw way ones you can get?
Also is anyone putting their prices up to cover any extra costs of ppe etc? Or just in general?
I want to keep everything fair but obviously...
Does anyone have any sort of magic potion that will help get hairspray off the back of the salon chairs?
I have a cleaner who comes in but she doesn’t get the build up off. The chairs are black leather - TIA x
We are a small salon, 2 stylists. We have broadband in the salon - mainly for customer use.
We rarely call out - it’s 99% incoming calls.
Is anyone with a phone company they’re happy with for landline/broadband.
The 1 in with us £50 per month but us up next month.
My parlux has burnt out - again! I’m so sick of buying expensive equipment and it not lasting.
I have never used any other make of dryer than parlux but Iv gone through so many.
I have seen another make - elchim has anyone tried them? If so what do you think of them?
