4D Hair Colour blog from Easydry

4D Hair Colour

By | News | No Comments

4D hair colour has taken off in America, with stylist Matt Rez leading the charge. Matt is a colourist in Beverly Hills in Meche Salon, and says that the futuristic 4D colouring guarantees a perfect, flattering blonde, red or brunette for each client.     Touted as the next balayage, 4D colouring also gives a dark root with a lighter tip but the key is the transition from top to bottom. The technique has nothing to do with graphics, or holograms despite the name! Rather it is focused on 4 elements, level, tone, horizontal colour and vertical colour. Here’s the science bit!   Level: the client decides how light or dark they’d like their hair to be. Tone: do they want warm or cool colours? Horizontal colour: this is essentially blending the darker roots with the lighter tips. Vertical colour: gives the client a neutral base that makes the highlights and lowlights pop!   The point of…

Easydry – the better way to dry

By | Business Advice, News | No Comments

Easydry – the better way to dry   Did you know that there is a wrong and right way to dry hair? To keep locks shiny and healthy top stylists recommend blotting your hair dry instead of rubbing it. But how can you dry clients’ hair properly with a regular cotton towel?   The answer is you can’t! Traditional cotton towels are not renowned for their absorption abilities, which is where Easydry comes in! Easydry is an innovative product which is engineered to dry hair quickly, gently and effectively. Easydry disposable towels are ultra-absorbent which cuts down drying time in the salon!   Easydry towels use WaterWeave™ – a patented technology that uses high-pressure water jets directed at a scientifically calculated angle to entangle the fibres. The result is an ultra-absorbent, luxurious alternative to cotton towels.   These high-tech towels have revolutionized the way people dry hair. Easydry towels are used in the top salons around the world –…

Unicorn Hair – a myth or reality!?

Unicorn Hair

By | Business Advice, News | No Comments

Unicorn Hair – a myth or reality!?   There has been an influx of mythical creatures featuring in modern culture, from mermaids to unicorns and this has extended into the world of hair! Unicorn hair is the latest trend that we are seeing in salons and of course social media, with people showing off their new multi coloured styles. One of the reasons this trend is so popular is that the aesthetics are all about iridescence, glitter, rainbows and shimmer – all of which tie in perfectly with the creative world of hair and beauty. To dig a bit deeper, unicorns have traditionally represented goodness, purity, beauty and youth. On a purely superficial level, who doesn’t want a bit more glitter in their lives!?   One salon that is taking this to a new level is Not Another Salon in London, who use glitter to full effect when colouring hair.
