Share These Four Tips With Clients

1. Wash once a week in cold water only.

  • Dry shampoo will be your client’s best friend when wearing bold fashion colors—recommend washing less often and using a dry shampoo (like the CHI Dry Shampoo!) for the days between shampooing. 


2. Schedule appointments every 10 weeks or less.

  • Fashion tones are a commitment and clients need to be on board with the upkeep process. Suggest they come back every 10 weeks at a minimum to protect their investment.



3. Avoid using super high heat with styling tools.

  • High heat can fade color fast. To avoid ruining fashion tones, Kayla likes to use the CHI LAVA Pro Spin N Curl 1-inch ceramic rotating curler (watch her viral video of the tool below!). The LAVA Pro Spin N Curl allows stylists and clients to customize the exact temperature to prevent color fade. Plus, it’s easy for clients to use (making it a GREAT retail option!).


4. Use a color/heat-protecting spray.

  • Before applying heat to that fresh hue, recommend a product that will shield clients’ strands and your hard work from harsh temperatures (like the CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protectant Spray or the Silk Infusion).
