Think in-and-out-face-framing contouring or natural highlights (up to 15 foils). The perfect up-sell to that regular haircut or blow-dry and a great entry point for non-colour clients.
L’Oréal Professionnel Instant Highlights has arrived. Salons, welcome your business changing time-saver and one stop up-seller.
There’s no denying that the professional haircare and colour market is well and truly saturated. So many (brilliant) products and continually evolving colour work propelled by technology that just won’t stop. But it’s very rare that we welcome a bonafide game changer to shift the zeitgeist, lift and evolve the salon service menu.
Welcome L’Oréal Professionnel Instant Highlights, the literally (almost) instant highlighting service geared to answer the cries of time poor clients and the stagnant bottom-line. It’s a completely unique professional colour offering delivering a whole new set of services to the colour menu. Express service? You got it – in half the time.*
A professional highlighting system that enables hairdressers to create customized, face-framing highlights in half the time, Instant Highlights is recommended for partial lightening techniques only – this beauty giant is all about protecting the integrity of hair, and your reputation. So think in-and-out-face-framing contouring or natural highlights (up to 15 foils). The perfect up-sell to that regular haircut or blow-dry and a great entry point for non-colour clients.
So how does it work? The secret in in the three-part system; consisting of the self regulating Heating Tool, Lightening Créme with Pro Heat technology and 10 micron Aluminum Foil. Used together, hair is quickly lightened (up to six levels) in a safe and controlled way (results seen here in this before and after).
Not dissimilar in appearance to the humble heat styler, the Instant Highlights Heating Tool glides over the foil packet, applying heat evenly to speed up the processing time. The spacer that sits between the plates combined with a controlled heat gauge regulates temperature every 0.2 seconds. Why? To maintain a safe temperature of 140 degrees at all times. Both functionalities work to guarantee hair will never come into direct contact with heat.
L’Oréal Professionnel recommend an application time of 10 minutes and heating time of no longer than 15 to 30 seconds (max), per foil. Development time up to 10 minutes, post use of the heating tool, is the rule. It is advised to start at the end of hair, moving up towards the root, using a back and forth motion. And of course, results are best served with an application of Smartbond Step 2 before a professional finish.
In an Instagram obsessed world, L’Oréal Professionnel Instant Highlights is the perfect, quick and subtle beauty lift your clients crave. From instant contouring to soft highlights and the between-visit touch up, this is the all-access technique every modern salon needs.
