If Your Client Needs Help Styling At Home, Read This!

Ticket-Boosting Add-Ons To Help Clients Style At Home

“I wish I could take you home with me so you could style my hair!” – EVERY. CLIENT. EVER. Right? What your client is REALLY saying is that they need help styling their hair at home—and we have two tricks that can help them, PLUS give you opportunities to earn more money. Let’s break it down!

 

When a client says, “I can never make my hair look like you do,” they are seeking guidance and education from you. Offering styling and retail tips is perfect, but you can ALSO upsell quick treatments that will give their hair canvas a better baseline to achieve the look they want. Paul Smith, Director of Education and Business Development for Keratherapy, walked us through this. Watch the video above for his tips!

 

First Scenario: Making At-Home Blowouts Easier

Seeking a total transformation, this client has wavy hair with body—but her inspo picture is a super-sleek, smooth bob.

 

Your Recommendation:

Add the Keratherapy Color Lock & Smooth Treatment to her service. Here’s why: Not only does it lock in color and add dramatic shine and vibrancy, it also helps speed up blow-drying and finishing for up to six weeks. This treatment does not minimize curls—it’s not a straightening treatment. Rather, it will create a smoother, less frizzy canvas that has max shine.

 

What The Appointment Looks Like:

 

  1. After the consultation, perform the color techniques you will be doing.
  2. Cleanse hair after color processes, then blow-dry or towel-dry the hair until it is 50% dry to remove excess water.
  3. Divide the hair into quadrants and apply Color Lock & Smooth in 1-inch sections, combing through with a fine-tooth comb.
  4. Let the treatment process. BONUS tip – if you prefer to cut the hair while wet, this is the perfect time. The product will act as a cutting lotion while it processes!
  5. Blow-dry with a vent brush until 100% dry.
  6. Divide dry hair into quadrants and flat-iron in ½-inch sections to seal color and keep frizz out.
  7. You may also cut the hair dry at this point or finish by personalizing the cut.

Second Scenario: Creating Wash & Go Looks For Low-Maintenance Clients

This client is looking for a more low-maintenance look. They aren’t interested in haircolor and want to simply wash and go—but their hair texture is uneven. Air-drying isn’t getting them the look they want, and they aren’t adept at blow-drying.

 

Your Recommendation:

The Keratherapy Express Renewal Plus+ service is a great option for a client who isn’t usually seeking chemical services. The keratin treatment reduces curl by 50% to 60% and gives silky, shiny results for up to six weeks. Plus, there is NO downtime—so your laid-back client can immediately get their hair wet afterwards without compromising the results.

 

What the Appointment Looks Like:

 

  1. After the consultation, shampoo the hair, rinse and divide into quadrants.
  2. Starting at the nape, take 1-inch to 1½-inch sections and generously spray Express Renewal Plus+ onto the hair, massaging in and combing with a fine-tooth comb.
  3. Allow to process for 20 minutes. BONUS tip – cut the hair while it processes!
  4. After the cut is complete or processing time is up, rinse the hair for 10 to 20 seconds (don’t shampoo).
  5. Blow-dry the hair completely smooth and straight until 100% dry.
  6. Section hair into quadrants and flat-iron in small sections, paying attention to the resistant root area.

 

Added appointment time:

45-60 minutes as a standalone appointment, but can be combined with a haircut.
