Framing $50 for fewer than six foils Natural Elements, Chicago $60 for seven to 10 foils
Colorist Scott Montgomery (ABCH) says clients looking to extend visits or highlight a focal-point love “framing,” in which fewer than six foils are placed around the face. “Added in other areas, they spotlight where we want light to fall,” says Montgomery. Because the salon helps clients extend their color, referrals are through the roof, he adds; 2008 was a record year because the salon emphasized “long-term relationships and open, honest discussion.”
One of the highlights of the National Redken Artist Connection (NRAC) held this past weekend in Austin, Texas, was the “Social Training” session held by Aditi Sharma, Redken’s AVP PR & Social. “If you don’t embrace this platform” she says, “it will stunt your growth. If you don’t move to video, you’ll be left behind.” Best Practices here.
