Glossing treatments, also known as toners or glazes in the salon, are a quick yet effective service that instantly refresh colour without commitment. This demi-permanent service traditionally follows highlighting appointments, but as clients search for the best ways to enhance their natural hue, try on non-committal vibrant shades, or refresh their grey coverage, glossing treatments are quickly becoming a must-have for everyone. Read on to learn our favourite ways to use Aloxxi TONES® Demi-Permantnent Colour to create stunning results while also adding to your bottom line.
The top services using Aloxxi TONES®
Stylists are so used to toning clients after highlighting that sometimes we forget about pre-toning techniques! Pre-toning takes place after highlighting or lightening but before the final gloss. It is a technique that adds a specific hue to the hair to create an even canvas before the final gloss colour is applied. For example, if you lift your client to the desired level but are still seeing a touch of yellow, consider adding a violet toner first to even out the tone. The same way you would prep a canvas with primer. Then, apply a second toner with the exact shade you’re after to get a more true-to-tone result.
Adding a TONES® treatment after highlights is essential. Not only will it perfect your colour, but it also helps strengthen, condition and protect lightened hair while improving shine. With intermixable shades and tones that last up to 24 shampoos, you can easily create custom colours and multi-dimensional results. What sets TONES® apart is the CDP Complex (Condition, Deposit, Protect) that delivers complete coverage while also conditioning and protecting the hair. TONES® is also the ideal touch-up service to refresh highlights between lightening services. Your clients can easily book a TONES® treatment and a blowout for an effortless finish.
To blend greys
For clients that are just starting to see their greys emerge, TONES® is a great service to offer to blend greys or whites without the commitment of a regular root touch-up. As a demi-permanent line, you can still enjoy the benefits of beautiful blending in a variety of shades without having to worry about a line of demarcation.
Alongside a root touch-up
TONES® is the ideal add-on for clients who receive regular root touch-ups with CHROMA® Permanent Creme Colour or ANDIAMO® Express Permanent Colour. After applying their CHROMA® or ANDIAMO® formula to the new growth area, refresh the mid-lengths and ends with TONES® for a flawless finish from root to tip. This will enhance their root touch-up by delivering even, balanced results and supreme shine!
Before a blow-dry
Although TONES® treatments are normally utilised to enhance or refresh tone, they can also be used to add shine to virgin hair. Simply apply TONES® in Clear to give strands all the benefits of a gloss without changing their colour. A quick and easy add-on to apply at the shampoo bowl before a blow-dry, they’ll notice shiner, conditioned results, and a more manageable finish.
