Instant Highlights

New L’Oreal Instant Highlights

Don’t have time to visit the salon for colour? L’Oreal’s brand new lightening system could be the answer!

What is it?

L’Oreals first pro-heat lightening system can lighten hair by up to 6 shades in just half an hour. Combining L’Oreals instant highlights foil, lightening cream and the brand new heating tool up to 6 shades of lift can be achieved in just half an hour. A full appointment lasts just ONE HOUR including the blow dry, you could be returning from your lunch hour with a fresh new look.

Who is it for?

Ideal for those short on time and want to freshen up their look. Instant highlights can:

  • Add framing to your face and accentuate your features #instacontouring
  • Enhance colour using delicately weaved highlights #instalights
  • Revive and brighten a grown out Balyage or Ombre using fresh colour accents #instarevive
  • Add a pop of colour by combining Instant Highlights and a #colorfulhair toner #instapop

Our verdict?

Following training in the salon the stylists practiced #instapop #instacontouring and #instarevive all three models were very happy with the outcome, L’Oreal’s Smartbond was added to the colour (Smartbond protects the structure of the hair). This is great for clients who just want a little colour that can make a big difference to your overall look.

Clients must attend a consultation beforehand, this will include a patch test, cost estimate and a rough guide into the amount of time it will take (depending on blow dry, hair thickness and length, Smartbond etc.)

Who is it not suitable for?

Clients who are looking for a Full head of Highlights.
Clients with a base 5 or below – really really dark hair (unless fashion colour).
Clients with very senstitised hair.
Clients who don’t have at least an hour available.
Clients who have highly chemically treated hair (e.g. Perms or permanent straightening)
