Let’s face it – fighting the advancement of grey hair sometimes feels like trying to hold back the tide. Work smarter rather than harder and show your clients that there can be another way with these new Grey Blending techniques from Wella Professionals and Robert Eaton, Wella Professionals creative technical director UK&I.

Clients have differing colour needs that evolve throughout their lives, and Wella’s thorough, six-step consultation process has been designed to ensure clients feel included and heard. It’s never just a case of telling a client what you think they want to hear, and this collaborative approach allows for client loyalty, frequency and creativity.

Whether they’re alarmed by the emergence of their first grey hair, thinking of growing out previous colour, or looking to embrace and personalise their grey look, Wella Professionals has created four distinct colour client profiles for you to use as a base guide for any client you might have. Wella Professionals has also broken down everything you might need, from hero products for different clients to how to charge for the services, and the ideal follow-up products to protect your work.

The right placements and undertones are hugely important in cultivating a new blended grey style for your client. Wella Professionals has laid the groundwork for you to feel confident in guiding your clients through any colour decisions, wherever your client is on their hair journey.
