ATTENTION Hair Stylists: Your Clients Need Your Help!

Last weekend I went to get a haircut and color. The cut and color were phenomenal and I left the salon looking like a million bucks. Later on, I got to thinking and realized the stylist missed a huge opportunity. I had these wonderful beach waves that I always try to achieve, but she didn't tell me how to style it!

Retail is so important to your business. I get it, you don't want to be pushy. However, some of your clients may need the help and are too shy to ask. If you don't tell them what you are using and show them how they may never ask.

It was a very hot summer, and if you are like me, you were busy throwing your hair up, because what was the point of doing anything to it before walking outside? The season has changed, and the good hair weather is upon us! Your clients are coming in for a color and cut, and they are excited about the new look. It is up to you, as a stylist, to show them what to do with it!

It doesn't have to be anything major or fancy. Let's just talk the basics...

Are you asking about their blow dryer at home?

I know that mine is old and damaging, and I desperately need an upgrade! Investing in a few extra for retail is necessary. (Hey, if they don't get sold, you always have back up!)

My pick: BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Mid-Size Titanium Dryer

Because not only is it cute, reasonably priced, and easy to use, but it gives great results!

Six heat and speed settings, a cool shot button and a concentrator nozzle provide a wide range of styling options! Plus the removable filter makes cleaning easy.

What about a high-quality brush? 

My pick: Olivia Garden Healthy Hair HeatPro Thermal Round Brush / 2.125"


These HeatPro brushes feature copper ceramic technology which allows the barrel to heat up twice as fast and retain heat much longer.

Best used for small to medium curls, waves, and volume! They give that soft curl for normal to thick hair.

This is so important! Not all brushes are suitable for certain hair types, and as a customer, that is not something I always knew! Maybe your clients don't know what they need!

Leaving the salon with those beach waves is the best part of the haircut! They show off the hair color, and I always feel like some kind of celebrity. Do you know how many people struggle to style their hair at home? We need your help! Don't forget to find out what they use at home for a curling iron!

My pick: Pink Titanium 3/4" Spring Curling Iron

Because it's pink! It also is great for smaller sections of hair, that give that natural beach look, that I love!

Professional Features:
  • Titanium Surface For Maximum Heat Distribution And Snag-Free Styling
  • Extra Long Cool Tip
  • Powerful Spring Clamp
  • Extra Long Thumb Grip
  • Provides Maximum Heat Curl After Curl
Don't be shy, stylists. Your clients come to you because they respect your opinion and what you do! We need your help! Invest in some retail options this season!

Perfect Curls....Every Time? Babyliss Pro's MiraCurl Curl Machine Does Just That!

How would you like to be able to make perfect curls, for every one of your clients, every single time? Now you can! Babyliss Pro just released the MiraCurl Curl Machine, which takes all of the guesswork out of curling anyone's hair! This revolutionary way to make curls automatically forms perfect curl after perfect curl, while leaving you full control over temperature, time, and curl direction!



THE FUTURE OF PROFESSIONAL STYLING TOOL MOTOR TECHNOLOGY

  • Exact control of motor speed and position for precision styling
  • Lightweight; ultra-low vibration for maximum comfort
  • Electronically controlled motor actively adjusts to work with voltage fluctuations, delivering consistent performance
  • Long life; up to 25 times the life of conventional styling tool motors
  • Motor stops automatically and reverses if the unit jams because too much hair is inserted into the curl chamber

HOW TO USE - Follow these 3 easy steps to create beautiful curls.

  • Place a section of hair no longer than 1.5" wide in the “V” section of the unit. Make sure that the "open" side of the MiraCurl is always positioned facing the client’s head. Position the machine where you want the curl to start.
  • Close handles. Hair will be automatically drawn into the curling chamber.
  • If you’ve chosen the setting for No Timing/Audio Signal Off (first position), simply keep the handles closed until you’re ready to remove the hair. When you choose timed settings (8, 10, or 12 seconds), MiraCurl™ will start counting when you close the handles and then beep at regular intervals while the curl is being formed – 3 times for 8 seconds, 4 times for 10 seconds, 5 times for 12 seconds. The machine will signal four beeps in quick succession when timing is complete.

MIRACURL™ TIPS & TRICKS

  • MiraCurl can be used on any type of real hair, whether it comes out of your head naturally or is attached with extensions. Straight or wavy, it’s all good. DO NOT use with synthetic hair of any kind.
  • ALWAYS position MiraCurl with the open part of the curl chamber facing toward the head.
  • Insert hair section into the "V" portion of the curling chamber. Ensure the hair section is straight and placed neatly through the center of the styler.
  • It always helps (especially with wavy hair) to comb through the section of hair that is about to be curled before placing it in the curling chamber.
  • For longer hair (below the shoulders), use a smaller section to make sure that the curling chamber is not overloaded.
  • If, for any reason, too much hair is drawn into the curling chamber MiraCurl is smart! The machine will stop and the curling motor will reverse. Simply re-do with a narrower section of hair.
Along with the MiraCurl Curl Machine, Babyliss Pro has released a full line of hair care products for use with the machine. Check out the MiraCurl Machine, as well as the hair care products, on Pure Spa Direct today!
