L'Oreal Professional NOW Offering Formal Balayage Training Certification

Balayage is one of the most sought-after hair coloring processes in existence today, and it is only becoming more popular with the recent trends of ombre hair color. According to L'Oreal's website:
"Balayage is a coloring technique used to create sun-kissed, natural-looking highlights. Used as an alternative to foil highlighting, it is the action in which hair color is swept or painted on to the hair to create depth and dimension.

Balayage is the in-salon color service choice among the most discerning clients – celebrities, models and fashionistas – that demand hair color to be designed exclusively for them. And Balayage hair painting isn’t just for Blondes! It is perfect for brunettes that want a subtle, sun-kissed look."
Recently, L'Oreal announced plans to formalize their Balayage training for salons across the United States, creating a full Balayage Certification Program.

According to The Colorist Magazine, the program will be broken into 4 classes, divided by levels:

  1. Balayage Foundations (2-day demonstrations with hands-on mannequin sessions)
  2. Balayage Advanced (2-day demonstrations with hands-on mannequin sessions)
  3. Balayage Creative (2-day demonstrations with hands-on mannequin sessions)
  4. Balayage Live (3-day demonstrations with hands-on mannequin sessions)
Following the completion of all 4 classes, colorists will be officially "Balayage Certified" by L'Oreal.

Wella Illumina Color: The New, Groundbreaking Professional Line

 On September 21st of this year, Wella celebrated the launch of their new and groundbreaking Illumina Color Line!  Not only is this new technology designed to keep hair healthier than ever, it can also help you reach a whole new market of clients.

As a colorist, you know that the hardest clientele to reach are those with 'Virgin Hair' aka hair that has never been chemically processed or colored.  The Illumina Permanent Color is a patented product that has been 5 years in the making to help keep damage to a minimum and keep hair as close to natural, 'virgin hair' as possible.  This is huge news for the industry, especially since 62% of women who do not color their hair say that fear of damage is the main reason.

According to Fabio Sementilli, the Creative Director of Wella Professional, “ILLUMINA is about clear color, clear shine and clear vibrancy. Women who say they’re afraid to color their hair because they worry about damage will see shining hair that is in great condition. The effects are the same on virgin as they are on previously colored hair.”

The Illumina Color Line will be officially released and available for purchase in January, 2013!

If you use Wella products in your salon, you can go to the Wella Professional Website and register your salon.  This will help get the word out to potential clients that they can have Wella products used on their hair at your salon!  Also, Pure Spa carries over 65,000 products, including Wella Color, Wella DeveloperFoil, Brushes, Bottles, Bowls / Shakers, Capes and other accessories!!

Hair Coloring Assistance - There's An App for That!

For all of those women out there that don't know what hair color they should go with for their new hair color or for the stylists that may need a little help in assisting their clients on what color to choose, I'm going to let you in on a little secret.  There's an app for that!


L'OrĂ©al Paris has come up with an app available in Mac Apple Store for your Iphone or Ipad that will help people choose a color for their hair.  One way to use the app allows people to scan the barcode on their products to learn about the color, while the second and more beneficial part of this app for stylists is clients answer  a short questionnaire about what they want and then the app recommends colors.  So, by the time they come to you, the guesswork on what color shade they would like is taken out of the mix.
Even though Pure Spa Direct doesn't carry L'Oreal products we do carry Clairol and Wella.  You can look at the color guide the app shows and compare it to the brand your salon uses to give the customer exactly what they want.  Plus we have all the essential items needed for your hair coloring services, such as mixing kits and hair color accessories.

Summer is almost over and the autumn months are coming.  Kids are going back to school and young adults are going away to college.  This is the time of the year where many of them want to show off their personal style by getting a new hair do or changing the color of their hair.  Some of them will want the traditional hair colors like red, burnette, blonde or black, while others will want to go crazy with color.  So why not have that available to them.  Jerome Russell's Punky Colors is your solution.  Let them go crazy with colors like:

Depending on the type and condition of hair the colors can last up to 40 washes.  My cousin was visiting for a couple weeks from California and she said before she went back to high school she was going to get her hair done.  She wanted pink streaks in her hair because it is something different.  This semi-permanent hair color would be perfect for her.  Nowadays, people want to stand out - so why not offer products that will stand out to your clients?  Jerome Russell Punky Colors is something fun and great to offer those clients who really want to show off their personality through their hair.

Salon Must Have: Hair Steamer

Hair steamers are quickly gaining popularity, and it is easy to see why. A hair steamer is like a sauna for the scalp and hair: it encases the head in a warm cloud of steam, opening the hair follicles to better absorb treatments, while cleaning the scalp and loosening dirt, product build-up, and dead skin cells.

Hair steamers are often used in a salon to perform deep conditioning treatments, protein treatments, and even color treatments.

Benefits of Hair Steaming
  • Better Scalp Circulation
  • Moisturizes Scalp and Root of Hair
  • Minimizes Breakage
  • Opens the Hair Follicle to Better Absorb Products
  • Helps Hair Absorb Color More Thoroughly
  • Speeds up Treatment Processing Time
  • Results in Softer, Shinier Hair
Professional Hair Steamers are available on rolling stands, perfect if you are interested in adding a hair steamer to your equipment, but are working with limited space. With Pure Spa Direct's wide offering, we have a hair steamer perfect for every salon! If you are just opening or remodeling, we also have wall-mounted hair steamers!

Help your clients have long, beautiful, healthy hair! What treatments do you use a hair steamer for?
