Salons continue to consider their time-crunched clients with specialty services that get them out of the chair faster. Celebrity hairstylist and “root specialist” Nelson Chan, founder of the Nelson J hair salon in Beverly Hills, sees grey hair as the number one concern of women over 40, and “roots” as the premier concern of women who color their hair, and has devised effective and affordable solutions for covering pesky “greys” and “roots” on a regular basis.
“After grey hair is colored, it usually starts to grow out in 2-3 weeks time, which means that women (and men) have to quickly come back into the salon to retouch their root area, which can add up in terms of time and monthly expense,” explains Chan, a master colorist who regularly comes to the rescue of women and men with visible “root” problems and has become widely known as a specialist in this area. “The same problem occurs with ‘roots’ or re-growth, which is usually darker hair that is visible only at the root area. That’s why Nelson J Salon developed simple, affordable, and quick color touch up systems for this specific area, which takes only 15 minutes. The first service--Base Color Retouch--retails for $49.00 but does not include a blow out.
Base Color Retouch involves applying a tint of any of professional haircolor to the scalp to cover up to 2 inches of hair re-growth, and then using a special heat lamp from Japan to reduce the processing time from 30 to 15 minutes. “This new Base Color Retouch Service excludes highlights, it’s only a base color application,” states Chan. “It’s best suited for clients who usually have single process haircoloring.”
A different solution for covering the re-growth of dark hair is the Partial Sun-Kissed Highlight ($49.00). Nelson J Salon reduces the process time to 15 minutes and the number of foils to 15 pieces, which are applied only to regrowth. This abbreviated service does not include a blow out.
