Organizational Skills

Need help getting organized? Spilo Worldwide HairWare Color Essentials Kit can sort you out. The kit contains 200 pop-up sheets of Spilo Professional Foil, a tint bowl, tint brush, applicator bottle and 10 disposable gloves, conveniently packaged in a purple vinyl case. Now, about that closet…

Memory Upgrade

From the very first wash, haircolor begins to fade. Matrix Shade Memory is a new line featuring shade-specific formulas to allow blondes, brunettes and redheads to customize their regimens. The line consists of shampoos, conditioners, color-enhancing foam conditioners and weekly reconstructive treatments, including Vivid Reds Balancing System. Containing five applications, the treatment repairs color-processing damage; protects color-treated hair from fading and UV damage; boosts and refreshes color; and enhances shine.

A Spring Thing

Shed winter doldrums this spring with 12 new warm and cool shades from Paul Mitchell the Color. Inspired by the tones and grain of fine timber, the six new Mahogany shades and six new Level 9 Blonde shades will enhance your clients’ hair color.

To accompany the release of these two niche color collections, Scott Cole and Linda Yodice, artistic directors for Paul Mitchell Professional Hair Color, sculpted the Wildwoods Trend for spring. Employing their unique Neapolitan Bamboo Technique, the trend celebrates color contrast and uses a medley of shades from auburn to blonde.

Foiled Again!

Who says smaller isn’t better? In addition to the 500-sheet economy box, you can now buy Product Club Foil in a 200-sheet box. Each 5-inch by 11-inch piece is precut and ready to use in a convenient, pop-up container that fits anywhere and can be dispensed easily.

Repelling Water

Because hair can absorb up to 45 percent of its weight in water with every rinse, L’Oréal Professionnel série expert vitamino color has been reformulated to incorporate the Hydro-Resist System to lock color in and seal water out. High levels of concentrated cationic silicones create a lightweight, invisible film on the surface of the hair to repel water.
