Premiere Orlando 2012: Sea Sponge Highlights

We discovered this stylist’s swoon-worthy curls over at the Paul Mitchell stage at Premiere Orlando. At first we were eyeing her amazing ringlets and then her awesome golden/auburn ombre hue so we decided to ask how she got her color. The answer was shocking: A SEA SPONGE!

Rather than using foils to highlight individual strands of curls, Samantha got her golden flecked highlights by applying color forumla using a sea sponge along the length of her hair. ¬†”I think we’re seeing a lot more organic coloring and this technique gives great but more subtle highlights,” she explained. ¬†Samantha recommends controlling the highlights by applying the dye with different pressures in different areas; for more saturated hues press harder and for lighter tones press more softly.

Another way she recommended getting more organically distributed highlights is to first braid the hair and spot lighten different sections within the braid.

Business Building Techniques

Begin having frequent staff meetings and collaborate on business building techniques used by others that you work with. Every salon has success right inside. Get the top booker to explain how they do it. Pair the weakest with the strongest and let them work next to each other. They can learn from what they hear and see. Do the same with retail sales. Share the ways that the top stay on top.

With cross marketing other services, know who the salon leaders are and copy them. Your staff becomes a resource to each other and by sharing dialouge that works, we all win.
