We’ve all been there. There is a certain letdown that many people experience when the holidays give way to the cold, bleak winter months, whose only reward to look forward to is sloppy spring weather. But as a stylist, you have the power to turn your customer’s winter doldrums into some dynamic new hair looks. Many of your customers will come to you looking for inspiration for a new way to wear and enjoy their hair. Whether they want a cut, some new color, or just the tools and inspiration to wear their current haircut in a new way, your clients are depending on you to help them find the latest trends. And that is where TikTok and FHI Heat come in! With our powerful tools, well-made products, and all the inspiration you need, your clients can shake the winter blues and enjoy a whole new look for their hair.
Many people talk about the winter blues, but your clients will be safe from the blues caused by the gray winter days with a little color in their hair. This year’s go-to color is smokey teal, a glamorous look that feels fun but not outlandish. When a client chooses a color change, one important part of that is helping them take care of their hair. You want to set your clients up for success, and you can do that right from the chair.
Right after bleaching or color-treating, a client’s hair will be especially vulnerable. Encourage them to avoid heat tools for the first week, and they can fortify their hair to help it stay as moisturized as possible. Natural products like olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oil would work, and FHI Heat also has a fantastic treatment program called NEO BOND. This 3-step system will create new bonds, rev up existing bonds, and prevent chemical treatment damage altogether with our Bio-Shield Technology. Try our NEO BOND - Salon Trial Kit so you can see the magic itself. The first two steps are applied during the color treatment, and step three gets sent home to continue processing.
Popularized in the roaring 1920s, incredibly, the bob is still a coveted look today. With so many different ways to style it and so many different lengths to choose from, your expertise behind the chair will be able to find just the right length for your clients. Somewhere just below chin length, skimming just above your client’s shoulder blades for a little skin showing helps this haircut to be flirtatious and fun. The midi bob can be dressed up or down, pulled into a top-knot or tiny ponytail, and gives versatility to your client’s hair.
Styling this is easy with our FHI tools. Clients can use our Pro Commission program to order any tools you use with them in the chair, and it will be delivered right to their homes. You will gain 20% commission from each sale without any of the hassles. Encourage your clients to use The Waver Pro Dual Barrel Waver to style their midi bob. Whether they want beachy waves or a more crimped look, HydraHeat™ Technology will seal the cuticle and create luminous, long-lasting waves.
One thing is true about hair care: people will always be asking salons for updos. Clients will be clamoring for stylized and messy buns, whether they be sexy, chic, or sleek. The number one trend is that they don’t look too “done.”
Once you help your client understand how best to pull back their updo, they will want to pull a few pieces out for the “messy look.” Because of The Curve Pro Styling Iron’s ergonomic style, it glides effortlessly through hair and curls, smooths, or waves hair in half the time. This is perfect for creating a style that looks like you didn’t spend much time on it. Because you won’t have to!
Another trend for winter color is the half dyed underneath look. Also called two-tone hair, this is a subtle way to add new color without making too large of a change. Your clients will love the versatility as they pull it up or down and their overall look changes. Most clients will add a lighter tone, such as blond, to a few face-framing pieces of hair and the underneath layer of their hair all the way around.
Encourage clients to keep hair nourished with our Satin Finish Conditioning Treatment - 13.5 oz, as this will also help strengthen and repair hair. With silk protein and hydrolyzed silk, this product penetrates deeply to the hair’s cortex. Hair protection and repairing benefits are maximized with this silk protein and hydrolyzed silk combo.
As the old saying goes, all old things become new again. It should come as no surprise, then, that side parts are coming back. As you teach your clients in the chair, remind them of these for haircuts and blowouts.
A good side part needs to incorporate volume, and FHI Heat has just the tools for the job. As you teach, you can remind clients of our Pro Commission program, where they can get any of our FHI Heat products or tools delivered right to their door. And any time they order with your special number, you will receive 20% off the sale.
So which tools and products will create volume with a side part? The Innovator Pro Power Speed Dryer uses the latest technology and its BLDC motor to style your hair easily and quickly as FHI Heat’s fastest, lightest and most powerful dryer. Use our Thermal Ceramic Brush - 1 in in tandem with the dryer, and the professional blend of anti-static wave-shaped bristles will help your client’s hair shine even as it creates volume!Although winter can be dark and cold, it sure doesn’t have to be boring. With FHI Heat tools and products in your arsenal, you can help your clients create hairstyles and colors that will invigorate them in the winter months. And by incorporating our Pro Commission program, you can help your own bottom line as well along the way.
