WITH NEW PRO-HEAT TECHNOLOGY

You’ve heard it a thousand times before: clients don’t have time to go lighter in-salon. Instant Highlights from L’Oréal Professionnel is what you need to tempt your time-poor clients back to the salon. Our first pro heat lightening system is designed to give up to six levels of lift, in half the time.The answer lies in its PRO HEAT technology. The three-part system: the Instant Highlights Heating Iron, Instant Highlights Lightening Cream and Instant Highlights Aluminium Foil have to be used together as, once combined, they work to ‘instantly’ lighten the hair in a controlled and safe way.


The L’Oréal Professionnel Instant Highlights tool has been uniquely designed with a spacer between the plates to help protect hair from the damage caused during the heat process. The spacer also has a controlled heat gauge that is designed to regulate the temperature every 0.2 seconds to ensure the safe temperature of 140 degrees at all times – both factors ensure that hair does not have direct contact with heat to prevent damage. It is important to only use the L’Oréal Professionnel Instant Highlights tool together with the bespoke-designed foil and designated lightening cream when performing this service, regular heat appliances must not be used.

Who's the client? “Upgrading clients who are in for cut and blow dry” How did you maximise it? “Add it to the service menu and put it all over social media” What was the business impact? “Early evening when we are waiting for final clients to be finished, by adding an extra colour service we have increased our daily turnover. Time poor clients are able to have an on the spot service”

MARK BYRNE

5 stars on 5

Who's the client? “Perfect for the client who just doesn’t have time or even better a great upgrade for someone who hasn’t booked into colour” How did you maximise it? “Promote it on Instagram. Seeing is believing and clients get it as soon as they see it” What was the business impact? “Through upselling this service, we have been able to add €60 on to clients total bill (pricing it the same as a T bar) so it’s a great add-on and our business is really seeing the benefit.”

CLAIRE GOLDBERG

5 stars on 5

Who's the client? “Clients who want to add a few face-framing lights or to refresh existing balayage/ombre” How did you maximise it? “Post before & afters on social media. Add to service menu window sticker ” What was the business impact? “We have seen an increase in clients having highlights who, in the past, would not necessarily have considered this service”

"One of the biggest barriers for clients who are considering colour is the lack of time. Now service time can be cut in half."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and quick! Easy to use and as quick as it says! The results are soft and blended and excellent also for the slightly impatiant clients who want to get blonde quickly as this is a great way to gradually lift over a course of appointments but can add extra bits between major colour services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, quick and easy! Very simple to use, the actual mixing and consistency of the product was very good for application. Levels of lift that you get at such a short time span is quite amazing. The model has never had highlights before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from InstaWOW! This product is incredible! When used on my model we realised how much time was saved! My model has insanely thick hair so it always takes a while to create a look on her hair, so very impressed!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very clever Application takes longer than normal so not sure how suitable for our clientele but works great in terms of lift and maybe with more practise will become quicker
