    Recommend that your Soft Framing clients rebook 4 – 6 weeks later for their next TriFlective Naturals service.
    To maintain an optimum color the Goldwell colorglow[IQ] series is recommended for use at home until the next salon appointment. The colorglow[IQ] Deep Reflects range is recommended to enhance and maintain this color at home.

    The face-framing highlights are recommended to be planned and booked depending on individual needs eg: every 3 months. Every other time, complete a Goldwell Color Balancing service.
