Words of wisdom – Amy Fish

We ask Amy Fish of Larry King Salon in London to share some wise words for colourists

Raspberry Glow by Amy Fish using Redken City Beats

My advice

Follow your gut – it’s more powerful than the brain. Always go with your first instinct, I always find that has the best outcome.

What’s the biggest challenge facing salon colourists right now?

Client expectations – everyone is so vain nowadays, and we’re in a time where every wants it NOW. You don’t want colour to be rushed.

And what’s the biggest opportunity…?

… for colour to be happy and fun. I love creating even the smallest changes to a client, perhaps something they wouldn’t normally have, such as using Redken’s City Beats as a colour rinse. Seeing the client leave with a big smile on their face is brilliant – I like it when we can both take risks. Colour is so much more accepted in the everyday world now.
