As a stylist, you really have it all. You have all the expertise you need to create magic for clients with your shears. And you have the gift of gab to put your clients at ease. You likely have the stamina to keep up your busy pace at the salon, as well as the sense of humor to do it all with a smile. At this point, all you need are the perfect products to help your clients look and feel their best. Look no further than the Stylus products by FHI Heat. With each one specially formulated to work so well with the others, once you start down the Stylus road of heat protectants, serums, hair sprays, and volumizers, there is no looking back.
With as many blowouts as you do each day, you understand how important protecting a client’s hair from heat is. Stylus products make it easy to protect clients’ hair from the heat while locking in natural moisture and avoiding frizz and flyaways. FHI Heat provides a few heat protectants you should have on hand.
Thermal protecting foam is one of the best thermal protective agents in the business. It goes on evenly and penetrates to the hair’s cortex. If you and your clients are looking for a detangler that also protects your hair from the effects of heat, this is it. Apply with both hands to make sure the application is evenly distributed, and for best results, layer this with other Stylus products.
Another heat protectant, Prep and primer, is bound to become your new best friend. This ideal cutting agent is a lightweight leave-in spray that untangles hair and protects from heat elements. Your clients’ hair will be able to retain moisture and will be more manageable, and this is especially important to help ensure your client a nice even cut. Apply on wet or dry hair and get ready to see shiny, well-protected hair.
Serums & treatments
Any quality hair product line will add some specialty treatments to its line of hair defense, and FHI Heat is no different. Sheer Remedy Liquid Satin is an alcohol-free treatment made of silk proteins and silk amino bases. You can apply it to wet hair before blow drying it, or on dry hair to prevent frizziness. Smoothness, flexibility and shine are the name of the game with liquid satin.
Use Satin Finish Conditioning Treatment to add more silky softness to your hair, and to protect hair from environmental or thermal damage. With two parts of Silk Protein and one part Hydrolyzed silk to maximize your hair’s ability to repair, this conditioner penetrates internally to repair hair and offer hydration.
Style, volume & fullness
If you are after style and volume, there are several Stylus products that will keep your clients happy, and the beauty of the little red bottles is that they work so well together to add life and fullness to your hair. Your clients will love the Pump it Up Blowout Serum, because it reduces blow dry time and increases round brush tension, allowing you to create the perfect blowout for your client.
There are a few other products to get the look you want for your clients. Spray Root Lift Spray at the base of a client’s roots to provide lift, or spray throughout hair for all-over volume. The light base will add texture to hair but not stickiness or tackiness. Though the spray is weightless, Hair Styling Gel is strong but flexible and features high shine. Use it for wet or dry looks, and it will keep the style in place without being flaky or leaving build-up. Volumizing Mousse is the perfect way to hold a favorite hairstyle in place. Providing smooth gliding style while also maximizing volume is the name of the game for this mousse that will leave you with a brushable finish and the ability to style and restyle.
Hairsprays & finishers
Once you create the perfect hairstyle for a client, you want it to stay the way you created it. There are a few ways to do that. Although you may not use hair mist on the regular, it can be a great tool in your arsenal. Powder-based and with tiny molecules that leave hair shiny and glossy, Shine Express Hair Mist seals the hair cuticle to keep hair from being flyaway or frizzy. If you have a client whose hair does what it wants, our hair mist is for you.
No matter what type of hold you are looking for in a finishing hairspray, the Stylus products have you and your clients covered. Firm Hold is the most traditional hairspray on the list, and will give you just what you expect out of a hairspray, holding the curls or style in place. On the other hand, Light Hold Hair Spray is dry, unlike typical hairsprays, so it does not have a lot of moisture to drag you down. It sprays on dry, and yet is still susceptible to thermal tools so you can style clients’ hair and style again. Variable Hold Hair Spray offers your client the coverage they desire, simply by layering the hairspray as you wish. Use it as a styling or finishing spray with no fear of crunching or flaking. And last but not least, is Mega Firm Hair Spray. There are certain moments when it is all on the line and you need to have a style that will hold firm no matter what. And if this is your time to shine, this is your time for a mega hold!
The Stylus products outlined above will make your job easier even as they make your clients happier. But what happens when your clients leave the salon and go home? How will they keep their hair shiny, moisturized, and in place? That is where the Pro Commission comes into play. If you are a member of our Pro Commission team and you share the information with your clients, they will be able to shop online and get these fantastic products delivered right to their door. For each product you sell, you will receive a commission, and the best part is, you will not have to store or pack the inventory.
