Let’s get you glazing. Now you know some of the benefits of Shinefinity, it’s time to talk application. Follow these steps to give clients a glaze that glows all through the season.
1. Prep Your Client’s Hair
A Shinefinity glaze can be applied to pre-shampooed or dry hair. If your client wants a softer result, take them to the backwash and cleanse using the Elements Renewing Shampoo. Then, towel-dry locks so they’re ready for color.
2. Mix Their Glaze Formula
Reach for your client’s chosen shade (or shades) of the Shinefinity Zero Lift Glaze gel crème and mix it 1:1 with the Bottle Activator or Brush & Bowl Activator. For a subtler finish, add 00/00 to the target shade to dilute the hue.
3. Apply the Glaze
Choose a technique that works for you and your client. You can apply the glaze from root to tip, sweep it on in balayage strokes, or go for highlighted ribbons. Don’t be afraid to get creative. You could even mix up and apply a root shadow for added depth.
4. Allow it to Develop
Leave your client’s Shinefinity glaze to develop for up to 20 minutes (less for a softer result). If you want to intensify their shade, apply heat with a Climazon. This is a good trick for enhancing reds or blending away first signs of gray.
5. Wash Hair and Glow
Once your client’s glaze has developed, wash their hair with Elements Renewing Shampoo. Because Shinefinity has balanced pH technology, you don’t need to use a post-color treatment to neutralize locks. You can simply finish with your favorite conditioner, if the hair needs it, then dry hair and style as desired.
