HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED THE MAGIC OF YELLOW PROFESSIONAL TONE-ON-TONE CREATOR YET?

Tone-on-Tone Creator transforms permanent colour into demi-permanent hues, effortlessly refreshing tones while preserving hair health.

 

 

WHAT IT DOES:

Tone-on-Tone Creator is a smart additive that, when added to yellow permanent colour, acts by targeting the alkalinity of the colour cream reducing its PH-level and transforming it into a true tone-on tone colour. It also remineralises the hair leaving it strong and healthy.

How do you convert YELLOW Professional permanent colour into a demi-permanent colour?

Adding Tone-On-Tone Creator lowers the pH of the colour and by using 5 vol will only allow the colour to enter into the cuticle and not deep into the cortex.

How do you use it?

  • Select your chosen shade, add Tone-On-Tone Creator into the bowl and mix together before adding 5 VOL, this will reduce the alkalinity of the colour. Once mixed add 5 VOL 1:2

How much Tone-On-Tone Creator do I need to add?

  • To refresh a colour 10:1 i.e. 10m of colour to 1 ml of Tone-On-Tone Creator. If the hair is porous or you would like a kiss of colour you can add 10:5 mixing ratio.

Here’s why you’ll love it

With YELLOW PROFESSIONAL Tone-on-tone Creator you can turn all the beautiful permanent cream colours in the range into true demi-permanent colours, this means…

-Reduced Inventory and a massive cost saving.

-Broader Range, with just one product you now have a complete range of tone-on-tone colours.

-Matching Shades, for colour refreshes you will always be able to match your permanent formula.

HOW DO I USE IT?

Follow the following mixing ration Colour – Peroxide 5 vol. at 1:2 and follow the following mixing ration Colour – Tone-on-tone Creator at 10:1 (when colouring natural hair add Yellow Tone-on-Tone Creator in an equal quantity to half the quantity of the colour to avoid altering the natural base).

Well we believe you & your clients really should, read on and we’ll let you know some of the reasons why?

We also think this question is a great way to grow your salon retail and encourage conversations about aftercare with your clients.

Asking clients if they double shampoo can help you as a hairdressers to grow your retail sales for a few reasons:

  • It’s an Education Opportunity: opening up a conversation about hair care routines and the benefits of double shampooing, such as more thorough cleansing and product effectiveness. This dialogue educates the client on the importance of using the right products for their hair type and needs .
  • Product Recommendation: After discussing hair care routines, you the hairdresser can recommend specific shampoos (and conditioner, treatment, styling & finishing products) tailored to the client’s hair concerns. This personalisation makes the recommendation more compelling for the client.
  • Building Trust and Expertise: By offering valuable advice, you can establish yourself as an expert in hair care, which can lead to increased trust from your client. That level of trust can translate into clients being more open to purchasing recommended products, rebooking, adding new services like treatments and changing up their style. They also become raving fans and more likely to recommend friends to use you.
  • Highlighting the Benefits of Professional Products: The discussion can also highlight the benefits of professional hair care products over supermarket brands, potentially encouraging clients to purchase higher-quality items from the salon .

Double shampooing is more than just a trend; it’s a method that promises to transform your hair care routine. OK, so here are 5 reasons we believe DOUBLE SHAMPOOING is so important…

  • Deep Cleansing: The first round of shampooing targets surface dirt, oil, and product build-up, effectively removing these initial layers of grime. This allows the second shampooing to penetrate deeper, ensuring a thorough cleanse right down to the scalp. We always recommend ELEVEN Australia’s DEEP CLEAN CLARIFYING SHAMPOO or GENTLE CLEAN BALANCING SHAMPOO as the first cleanse.
  • Enhanced Scalp Health: A clean scalp is the foundation of healthy hair growth. Double shampooing can help prevent the accumulation of sebum and residue, promoting a healthier scalp environment for the hair.
  • Improved Product Efficacy: The second shampooing isn’t just about cleansing; it’s also about preparing the hair to better absorb conditioners and treatments that follow. With the hair cuticles open post-cleanse, products can penetrate more effectively, enhancing their benefits. The second shampoo is also your chance to deal with hair concerns whether that’s HYDRATION, VOLUME, SMOOTHING. REPAIR or TONING.
  • Volume and Texture: For those looking to add volume to their hair, double shampooing can make a noticeable difference. By thoroughly cleansing the hair, it can appear fuller and thicker, as there’s no residue weighing it down.
  • Misconceptions Debunked: Concerns about hair loss from double shampooing are unfounded. When done correctly, this method does not cause hair loss but instead leaves your locks more vibrant and healthy-looking.

Incorporating double shampooing into your hair care routine can unveil the full potential of your hair and scalp health. Remember, the key is to choose the right type of shampoo that suits your hair type and condition to avoid dryness or damage.

ELEVEN Australia Collective Awards

This year saw the launch of the ELEVEN Australia UK COLLECTIVE AWARDS with awards up for grabs in over 5 categories. Many of our amazing ELEVEN Australia salons entered, and finalists were chosen and invited to the awards ceremony at Salon International. We asked our winners a few questions to discover what it takes to put an award-winning entry together.

ELEVEN AUSTRALIA UK SALON OF THE YEAR

JUDGED BY Wonderful Brands Joint Managing Director Andy Camping , our finalists were;

  • Atelier Hair Couture
  • Salon Ginger
  • Elysian
  • Michael John Hair Artworks
  • Josh Lee Hair
  • Roberts and Gray
  • Heir Salon

We learnt putting together the entry for The Eleven Salon Of The Year Award was an enlightening experience. It allowed us to reflect deeply on our journey and business practices. Here are some key lessons we learned:

The act of writing the entry was a positive exercise for the entire team, it allowed us to reflect on the positive aspects of the business and understand the potential for further success, this in itself added a boost in team morale and provided motivation and focus. We were given the opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of our team and recognise their efforts and achievements.

The process prompted us to take a step back and critically assess HEIR Salon strengths and weaknesses. In doing so we are able to identify what makes the salon unique, but also where we can make improvements. Identifying weaknesses, as well as strengths is the first step towards addressing them and improving business operations, systems and services.
The end to end experience has given us the opportunity to recognise and reward our team as well as continually improve our services and build a reputation for being a top quality high street salon.

My biggest tip for anyone thinking of entering awards is to show the impact of your incredible business. Even the smallest of salon businesses can make the biggest of impacts. Numbers, analytics and reports can paint a picture, but it’s the impact of your business which tells a story. The real ways in which your business has helped people and made a lasting impression. For us it’s about the impact we make in the lives of our customers and our team. Case studies and testimonials can speak louder than a graph showing business growth. Your business has made a difference, in some way, this is what makes you unique and worthy of an award win! So find a creative way to share this!

When we found out that HEIR Salon had won The Eleven Collective Salon Of The Year Award, We were overwhelmed with gratitude. It was a moment of validation for all the hard work and dedication our team put into HEIR salon. Winning this award has not only boosted their confidence but also motivated us to aim even higher in our business endeavours.

Colourist Of The Year

JUDGED BY Head of Education Melvin Royce Lane & Education Director Lindsay Perez-Solomon, our finalists were;

  • Douglas Reid – R&R
  • Pamela Cooney – Clay Hair Studio
  • Stacy James – Stacey James Presents Style
  • Jamie Boot – Salon B

What I learnt about myself entering the award was that It helped me learn that even tho I own a business now there is always room to make time to be creative! It helps keep ideas fresh and creates excitement in the salon you can’t beat!
My biggest tip is be true to yourself and put forward your own sense of style and what you see as forward-thinking.
Winning the award just makes you feel amazing! By being recognised just makes you feel that you are getting it right and makes you want to do it again!

Member Of The Year

JUDGED BY Wonderful Brands Education Director Jo Robertson, our finalists were;

  • Toni Roberts – Roberts and Gray
  • Zoë Rees – Biss Hair Therapy
  • Zoey Louise – Salon B
  • Jamie-Leigh Oliver – Micheal John Hair Artworks

What I learnt about myself when I won the award was that if I really put my mind to it and have more faith in myself I can do anything. I also learnt that I am good at my job and I should have much more confidence than I do have with showcasing my work and how I get to where I need to get.

I have never entered an award so the tips I would give is just do it, you’ve got nothing to loose, just make sure you put everything you have into it and the most important thing is you did your best. Entering is the most confident thing you could do.

How I felt when I won both my awards? I sobbed like a baby! I just cried (with happiness of course) I have never won anything before and I lack so much confidence within my job, I’m so used to always being knocked so I didn’t have high hopes but knowing that I won two awards I was and still am over the moon and I sing about them with pride! But I’m always trying to improve myself to always be better as a just in case. I couldn’t be more thankful to the eleven team for boosting my confidence so much!

TREND IMAGE AWARD

JUDGED BY Co-Creative Director Andrew O’Toole & Co-Creative Director Joey Scandizzo our finalists were;

  • Douglas Reid – R&R
  • Jamie-Leigh Oliver – Michael John Hair Artworks
  • Hollie Herring – Hair at No.2
  • Eloise Taylor – YOKE The Salon

SOCIAL MEDIA AWARD

JUDGED BY Head Of Education Melvin Royce Lane and Jo Robertson Wonderful Brands Education Director, our finalists were;

  • Katie Guise – Ochre Hair Studio
  • Zoë Rees – Bliss Hair Therapy
  • Jamie Sean Boot -Salon B
  • Zoey Louise – Salon B
  • Joshua Lee Partridge – Josh Lee Hair

What I learned about myself by entering the awards is that I’m so busy in the salon that I rarely get the time to reflect. Compiling the entry made me realise how much we’ve developed in business since launching five years ago and actually made me feel quite proud of how far we’ve come!

If you have never entered an award before and if you feel you deserve to be recognised for a certain achievement/award- just go for it! Sitting down to draft the entry can feel a little daunting, especially as hairdressers are not used to being behind a laptop so if necessary seek support. A friend, family member or professional who has copywriting experience will be able to help you effectively convey why you deserve to win.

Another handy tip is to carefully consider the criteria for the specific award you are applying for and write down your key notes in bullet point format. This will help to ensure that the entry remains concise and relevant, which is critical in order for the judges to measure if you are the deserved winner.

When we heard our name being called as a winner we were over the moon. At Josh Lee Hair we are huge advocates of ELEVAN and have been using the products for several years now. To be recognised is an honour.

This revolutionary solution is also a deodorizer, leaving your salon smelling fresh and clean.

Mini Products are not just for Travel.

OK, we know they are great for travel and who doesn’t take miniature versions of their favourite hair & beauty products with them when they go on holiday or for that chic weekend break. But, we know that stocking travel size shampoo’s, conditioners and styling products can ignite your salon retail, so here are some top reasons we believe you wont regret stocking these pocket sized beauties…

Before we get started we need to thank Stella at Lux Loughborough for the picture 📸 and for making the most of ELEVEN Australia mini’s in her beautiful salon. All of the ideas below will help you grow your salon retail but they will work much better if you ensure you are carrying stock of each of the ELEVEN Australia mini size products and are displaying them beautifully in a salon HOT SPOT like the reception desk. Ask your Wonderful Brands Account Manager for ideas to help you get this right and be sure to check out our latest promotions to give you some inspo to drive your retail.

A Great Way for Clients to Try

You’ve created that stunning layered cut and styled it using your favourite I Want Body Texture Spray but your client just isn’t sure that she will use it then recommend taking home a mini first. With a much smaller investment this is a great way for clients to try out a new product.

Something for the Gym Bunny

With over 15% of the UK population going to the gym regularly many clients are looking for products to keep in their gym bag. Whether it’s Deep Clean Clarifying Shampoo for that post workout shower or Give Me Clean Hair Dry Shampoo for a quick style fix, mini products are a great solution.

Business Travellers Best Friend

Whether its a quick trip with an overnight stay in the UK or your client is travelling overseas they will be looking to pack light and avoid that wait for hold luggage at the airport, our minis are all designed to fit in your hand luggage and are under 100ml so can be taken through airport security.

GWP, that’s Gift With Purchase

We are all used to shops offering promotions and one that is particularly effective is the GWP.

Think about your last visit to a beauty counter, were you tempted to buy that new primer because you were offered a free mini moisturiser? We all love something for nothing! What about the free moisturiser, did you love it? Oh, you bought a full size one on your next visit.

This is the kind of activity you can copy in salon and it will really drive your retail sales. For example you could offer a free mini styling product when you a shampoo & conditioner.

Or a Salon Service Promotion

Just like the GWP you can use mini’s to grow your salon services and build retail at the same time. How about offering a free mini product when you rebook today? This will help boost your rebook % and you will see your retail grow as clients are more likely to after trying and seeing the benefits.

Don’t forget to ask how they got on with their mini product when they return to the salon.

And Yes! Holidays too

Are you going anywhere nice for your holidays this year

It’s the conversation that always comes up just be sure to use the opportunity to mention…

We have some great mini products that are ideal for holidays

 

We offer retail training for salons and can help you make the most of mini products, ask your Wonderful Brands Account Manager to help you grow your retail.
