Consider offering the following time-saving services to your menu: Rapid Retouch, a must-have maintenance service; Color Refresh, a fast and easy way to refresh your client’s base with an all-over application or customize your clients by adding a few slices of an accent color; Full Head Application, an ideal service for men (especially IGORA COLOR10 -12 shades) or women with shorter styles; Partial Color Design & Partial Highlighting, a speedy service to spice up and create personalized color designs; Lunch Time Color, color done in less time than it takes to pick up lunch; Mini Retouch, perfect for budget-strained clients, use this service to retouch around the hairline and partline; Upgrade, transform “haircut only” clients to makeover clients in 10 minutes.

“It’s perfect for lowlights because of the quick processing time and the delicate balance of lightening and depositing at once. It makes for extreme convenience. I love to use 7-12 with 3% (10-volume) for a cool lowlight. If I want to add warmth and/or reduce ashy tones, 5-5 and 6-4 are my favorite shades,” shares Amber Dawn, Schwarzkopf Professional Brand Ambassador & Celebrity Hairstylist.


Talking Money
Although this service is quick, that does not make is any less valuable. Be sure to explain to your clients that, as a colorist you put the same effort into the application as you would with any other color service. IGORA COLOR10 is a premium formula which means you could actually charge more for the convenience as you would with any other express service. So don’t downplay your work, make sure you’re making what you deserve.

“My favorite shades are 7-12, 7-0, 5-12 and 5-0 to base break hair, Level 1-5 in 10 minutes. It’s easier to break the base on Level 7 and up, but dark hair foils are hard because the hair will turn a ratchet skank orange,” notes Guy Tang, Celebrity Hair Artist & Color Educator.

Guy’s Go-To Tips
If a client comes in with natural Level 2 at the regrowth and 3 inches of Level 6 grown out color of 6 ash from your previous color service, use 7-12 6% (20-volume) or even 9% (30-volume) if the hair is coarse.

2. You can break the base while blending in stripey highlights simultaneously at the regrowth area.
