Spring and Summer may be the time for long walks on the beach, rooftop happy hours and backyard barbecues, but there’s one annoying side effect that comes along with warm weather fun: Frizz.
No matter how perfect your client’s summer hairstyle may look when they leave the salon, without the right products, many of your guests will struggle with frizz as soon as they leave your chair. As a stylist, it’s important to train your guest on how to fight frizz on their own so that they can enjoy the beautiful haircut you’ve given them every day, all summer long.
“In todays world it is important as a stylist to understand how communication builds wealth — Develop the attitude behind the chair to ‘stop selling and start telling,’” says Redken Global Artistic Ambassador Sam Villa. “If you are not offering a solution to the challenge of frizz you are doing a dis-service! How can a stylist finish the hair and not offer the solution to control their frizz? It’s a no-brainer.”
Here are Sam’s tips on exactly how you can teach your guests to fight their frizz (and which products they need to do it!), so that everyone can enjoy their beach walks, happy hours and barbecues looking and feeling their best.
For Guests Who Need An On-The-Go Fix
Redken’s FPF 10 Fly-Away Fix Finishing Sheets are perfect for fighting frizz on any hair type. Advise guests to carry them in their purse for a quick fix to help rid hair of any frizz that pops up after they leave the house. These sheets can also be used to dry set: Cut them into 1-inch vertical slices, and braid them into hair before bed to wake up with frizz free waves!
For Guests With Fine Hair
Live in a humid climate? Fine to medium hair will respond beautifully with Redken’s award winning FPF 20 Smooth Force Lotion. It won’t weigh down the hair, and takes all of the sting out of detangling. Apply it to the root area and blow dry in sections, which will help evenly distribute the product throughout each section with your brush. Advise guests to make this a staple in their beach bags to control frizz in the sun, and suggest that they apply liberally to maintain humidity control, lock in moisture and preserve incredible shine!
For All Day Frizz Control
Some hair just needs a little extra help to stay “calm,” and FPF 40 Rebel Tame will help whip it into shape. Apply to wet hair and either blow-dry it smooth or use a diffuser. Either way, this awesome cream is a hero for taming frizz all day long.
