Shave Minutes Off Appointment Times With 10-Minute Color


1. Color correct tonal shifts with one application.

Between tricky green hues, banding and color correction, nailing tonal shift requests can be intimidating. John uses Matrix SoColor 10-Minute Pre-Bonded Permanent Haircolor for a quick, single application that takes cool clients warm for intentional tones that align with client’s inspo pics. Talk about formulation made easy!


Keep this in mind: This permanent color is formulated for virgin hair and regrowth touch-ups. The fast-acting formula keeps hair healthy and on-tone, eliminating any processing nightmares.


Pro tip: Skip the metal whisk to mix your formula and if your client’s hair is compromised, opt out of foils, too!

2. Book more clients with faster processing times.

Think about all of your gray coverage clients. Now, think about how fast your appointment turn-around would be if full-coverage color only took 10 minutes—and protected the hair as it’s processing. SoColor 10-Minute Pre-Bonded Permanent Haircolor contains a pre-bonded formula that protects melanin-lacking strands. Plus, it allows a five-minute buffer window to control over-processing between 10 and 15 minutes.


Think of it this way: The faster, more efficient your appointments are, the more appointments you’ll be able to book. More time = more clients = more revenue for you!


As John always says, “Time is money, honey!” If only all color services were this quick!


SoColor 10-Minute Pre-Bonded Permanent Haircolor is a high kinetic dye, meaning it blends, moves and expands quicker than traditional dyes.

Gray coverage, root touch-ups, seamless hairline blends—this 10-minute permanent color does it all.


3. Try this for seamless hairline touch-ups.

No client wants to leave with a dark line around their hairline that screams, “I just got my roots touched-up!” Make your clients’ hairline touch-up appointments that much easier with John’s simple application:


  1. Apply color directly to the hairline regrowth—it’s okay if some gets onto the skin. SoColor 10-Minute Pre-Bonded Permanent Haircolor won’t stain the skin, saving stylists precious minutes they would be spending scrubbing away at their client’s hairline with color remover.
  2. With fast-acting color, John recommends watching the touch-up “fade” into the client’s previous color as an indicator for processing time.
  3. Rinse color, shampoo and style.
