The Perfect Updo Combo

posted by | April 10, 2013 | 12:47 PM

The Perfect Updo ComboWhat are the three things every client needs for her special occasion style? Body, shine and hold! Put them together, and she’ll look great while dancing the night away. To deliver that triple threat and make sure the artistic updos you design this season will help clients “wow” the crowd, Aquage is offering a 33 percent discount on the combined purchase of three popular stylers— Beyond Shine, Beyond Body and Finishing Spray. 

• Beyond Shine is a fine-mist, ultra-light silicone polish that silkens and imparts brilliant shine. It can be used with a flat iron or blow dryer.
• Beyond Body is a non-aerosol, medium-hold, body-building, heat-activated spray that guards against drying and thermal damage, preventing frizz and flyaways.
• Fast-drying, aerosol Finishing Spray locks in the style with a fine-mist for longlasting, firm hold.

Make the prom and bridal season fresh and exciting this year by hosting Pinterest parties! Ask your teen clients to bring examples of their favorites styles they found on Pinterest. This can be fun for a spring Sweet 16, too. When they see the magic of special occasion styling, they may become regular clients!

Aquage created the new Muse Collection of styles to encourage the young and young-at-heart to rely on their Aquage-trained stylists to craft a modern updo— which is more gathered than coiffed. Aquage will supply stylists with a style look book as well as quick step-by-steps on creating each look in the collection.
