Heather Pizzulli (@hairbyheatha), a design associate at Vito Mazza Salon & Spa, Woodbridge, NJ, says her client has "been a faux blonde balayage for almost 2 years - refusing haircuts and deep conditioners - and ALWAYS flat ironing at 450 degrees. I let her realize for herself that her hair was going to give up at some point and the day I got the text 'I need my hair chopped off and made dark' I immediately made room for her in the book."

There are many ways to introduce your client to color, but offering color without the commitment can make it even more enticing. Add in volume and length and you have one of the biggest trends of 2016 and one of the most profitable services in the salon today—extensions.
