TREAT EVERY RE-TOUCH as a COLOR CORRECTION…because it is! “Find out what your client like the best about their hair color and what they didn’t like. Check out how the color 'wore' from her last appointment. Did she spend a lot of time in the sun? Did she go swimming? Has she become significantly grayer?”—Beth Minardi, Master Colorist and creator of Beth Minardi Signature Color
ADDRESSING HAIR LOSS: "Instead of saying 'Let's talk about your hair loss', the better way would be to say 'I have something to make your hair beautiful'. It's a more positive approach...and what client wouldn't respond to that?" —Melissa Schleicher, Parlour 3 in Brentwood, Tennessee
The POWER OF DOING DESIGN allows you to MARKET YOUR SERVICES better. “Use a trimmer to etch graphics into your men’s hair styles. Start with a base price, the more detailing you do, the higher the price. After going over with a trimmer, use a razor to touch up the lines. Coloring in the lines of the graphics is another add-on.”—The Major League Barbering Team
Using a SOFT, ROUNDED POWDER BRUSH on pressed powder offers a shear make-up application and makes the skin look velvety. “This makes it much easier to build, so apply lightly. For a more opaque finish, use a sponge.” —Kevin Mendelson, Global Educator for Jane Iredale
LARGE PLANT HOLDERS can make great hair pins that create texture. Figure-8 the hair around the two prongs of the pin for an unusual, angular curl that creates a fairy tale finish. —Antoinette Beenders, Senior Vice President of Creative & Global Creative Director of Aveda.
