Cool color services can be demanding and challenging, starting with an expert consultation will empower you to create the most stunning looks!
Our IGORA ROYAL and IGORA VIBRANCE portfolios both offer a dedicated assortment of cool shades; providing you with the perfect tonal directions needed for working on different levels of depth – and counteracting different underlying tones.
Whether that's beautiful cendré, enticing ash or strongly neutralizing matte shades for darker bases, IGORA COOLS provides everything you need for those cool color services.
In a salon, every service starts with a consultation, and when it comes to cool color services, we want to provide you with the right tips so that the consultation is as smooth as possible. We also support you with our IGORA COOLS Consultation Tool, which provides color theory and helps you to find the perfect cool shade for neutralizing your client's hair!
Start with open questions and listen to your client’s hair challenges and wishes. Remember, it can be particularly challenging with cool color services because the language used by clients can have different meanings e.g. they often talk about ‘cool’ when they actually mean ‘neutral’ color results. Our tip is to use visual aids, for example the IGORA COOLS Consultation Tool and before/after pictures, to set correct client expectations and find the perfect cool color for your client.
The diagnosis step is the base for any service or color recommendation. For cool color services, it is extremely important to analyse the level of depth, to understand which underlying tone is going to be revealed and to define the hair’s condition – it will play a big role in how the color will deposit on the hair.
For cool shades, do not apply to the area up to 2 cm from the hairline on the first application. Instead, apply a neutralizing shade to that area last to prevent over-pigmentation.
To maintain a vibrant and long-lasting cool color, we recommend care products that are specifically designed to protect colored hair. Our BONACURE Color Freeze range has been specially developed to provide hair colour protection with close to zero fade
Don’t forget, cool colors tend to fade away quickly. For anti-yellow effects on light blonde or white levels of depth or anti-orange effects on dark blonde levels of depth or cool tones, create a personalised plan with your clients using Chroma ID as an in-salon refreshment service, or at-home with our range of Bonding Color Masks. To further prolong the color, offer extra in-salon services such as glossing or refreshing!
Don’t forget to use our House of Color App for extra guidance during the consultation process – it’s THE perfect multi-functional assistant for your daily color business!
