Harness the power of semi-permanent colour and social media hair trends with Organic Colour Systems
Besides creating show-stopping looks, colouring is also a fantastic way for clients to express their personality and individuality. It provides an extension of themselves, and is the ultimate accessory to complete any look. With colour techniques and trends constantly evolving, semi-permanent colour allows clients to switch up their hair colour to suit their mood or style on any given day.
Not only does this mean both you and the client have greater freedom to re-invent any given style, but with Organic Colour Systems semi-permanent hair colour services, there is more choice than ever. Coupled with the endless inspiration shared across Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards, it’s a great time for colourists to embrace semi-permanent services, encouraging greater customer loyalty from colour chameleon clients who are prepared to invest in their continually changing look.
How to stay one step ahead
Keep up with trends – An easy way to keep up with the latest colour trends is by turning to social media – an endless source of inspiration, and a vital tool for gauging the popularity of any particular style. Whilst techniques like balayage and ombre always prove popular, pastel hues are regularly circulated, and clients are turning more and more to these images for ideas. To keep on top of what’s gaining popularity, it’s easy to follow what some of the biggest influencers in hair are doing, as well as sharing your own work to boost your following further.
It’s all in the application –Take time to apply the colour in sections, and really work the colour into the hair. It’s important to keep an eye on colour development to make sure that during washing it hits the right shade. The great thing about the Organic Colour Systems’ No Limits range is that the colour you mix in the bowl is exactly what you get on head, so it’s easy to work with clients beforehand to guarantee they get a shade they love.
The No Limits range is also great for keeping clients’ hair healthy, thanks to the natural conditioning and protein-rich base. It not only helps to replenish protein during the colouring process, but aids in maintaining colour for longer.
Getting the best results – While the beauty of semi-permanent colour means there is no long-term commitment, how long semi-permanent colour will actually last is largely determined by the quality of clients’ hair. When colourists create on-trend colours for clients using semi-permanent hair colour, 80% of the time it is applied to pre-lightened hair. Unfortunately, when hair is lightened it loses protein, which is vital to the structure of the hair and essential for helping the semi-permanent colour hold.
Although clients are aware that their semi-permanent colour will fade over time, they don’t expect to leave the salon with bright pastel hues, only for it to drastically fade out after the first wash. To avoid this, it’s essential that colourists always put the condition of clients’ hair first… and ensure the client is prepared to do the same!
