EP 168: Gold is for Filling Hair to go Darker (not for Grey Coverage). Here's why...
As a hairdresser, I understand there's a lot of misleading or contradictory information about hair colour formulations. It's time to stop sacrificing brightness and tone with fashion colours for grey coverage and vice versa. It's also time to stop making every Blonde client who requests to return to their natural brunette shade a reddish brown or accidentally green.  Gold is much better suited as a Filler when transforming a Blonde to Brown than Red. There are both warm and cool golds in every colour brand. Cool Golds or Iridescent Violet-based Golds are better for filling light hair on a client who wants to be darker and cooler or natural results. In contrast, gold or orange-yellow golds are better for filling blonde hair to warm natural results, including copper or red. Grey Coverage fashion colours should not contain any gold. You need to add Natural into your grey coverage fashion colours. Trust me. It works with every brand.  In this episode of the Colour Kristina Talks podcast, I discuss examples of salon scenarios where gold is your best choice, and why you need to leave it out of your grey coverage client formulas. ----------------------------- Want to learn more?

EP 167: How to Fill Hair for Warm, Ash and Natural Results when going darker
Wondering why your client's hair turns green or red when you dye it several shades darker? In this episode, we answer that question.  You need to fill your client's hair if you are going 2 or more levels darker. That is a colour principle that you need to memorise. Any brand. Any salon. Let me break it down for you: If you are only going one shade darker - no filling is required.  If you are going 3-4 levels darker - you need to fill 2-3 shades darker. This is a double-process colour service. If you’re changing a client more than 4 levels darker,  you will probably need to do a few layers of colour, including a filler, then a colour, and a final glaze or toner. There are 3 methods that you can use for filling hair: You can fill the hair with a semi-permanent colour or toning shampoo if it’s highly sensitised or damaged. You can apply a tint or oxidate colour onto the hair and then comb it off and paint your 2nd layer over it. You can also fill hair before dying it darker with semi or demi-permanent colours. This is the most predictable, but not always the best solution for every hair type. In this episode of the Colour Kristina Talks Podcast for Hairdressers, we're talking about filling with a demi-permanent for ashy cool, warm and natural results. So if you always end up with an unwanted red tinge to your client's hair or a drab murky green, this is for you! ------------------ Want to learn more?

EP 166: Spilling the tea: Facebook Hairdressing group No-No's
I’m spilling the tea on Hairdresser Facebook Group Formula Requests, and why they’re a recipe for disaster! I am freaked out by the epidemic of stylists asking strangers on the internet for help. The questions, the comments, and the misguided answers all make me so nervous I break out in hives just thinking about it. Here’s the thing: 90% of all Hairdressers will give a Redhead Hot Roots. 2/3 of those stylists believe the only way that you can mix and formulate a beautiful Redhead is by using a particular colour brand, but your salon doesn’t stock them. So you feel that you won’t be able to do it because someone told you the colours you stock in the salon can’t create beautiful Red & Copper formulas. Sound relatable? Here’s the tea: if you want to avoid messing up Reds, you have to learn how to combine Creative Colour Theory with Science. But most people end up just guessing formulas or blaming the brand they use and – shocker! — it doesn’t work!   Listen to podcast episode 166 as we dive deep into the drama-filled world of Facebook Hairdressing group No-No's -------------------- Want to learn more?

Many hairdressers and salon owners are apprehensive about raising their prices.

EP 163: 4 Ways Colour Trend Promotions Can Help Your Salon
Now is a great time to update your service menu. This could be something you aim to do seasonally or perhaps every fashion season, which would be twice a year. Updating your service menu by bundling popular services under exciting, trend-inspired names. Give your clients the thrill of trying something fresh with packages like "Cowgirl Copper Glaze" or "Champagne Sparkle Foils." These not only sound exciting but also create an immersive experience for clients, making them feel they're stepping into the forefront of fashion. Consider bundling traditional services like balayage, highlights, and glossing into comprehensive packages that align with the colour trends. And price for profit by bundling your most popular colour services together with a new trending name. For example, a 'Sun-Kissed Radiance' package could combine warm-toned balayage, honey highlights, and a glossy finish. Be creative and let your imagination run wild with names that resonate with the spirit of 2024. Listen to episode 163 of the Colour Kristina Talks Podcast for Hairdressers and Salon Owners to learn 4 ways hair colour trend promotions can hep your salon. This is Part 2 of a 2-episode series sharing tips and tricks for what’s hot in the world of hair colour, plus how to translate these trends into social media promotions to get your clients excited about them, and of course, how to price for profit whilst doing so!  -------------------- Want to learn more?

EP 158: Beyond the Salon Chair: Mastering Consultations, with Crystal Green
Consultations are the key to your success as a Hairdresser. The salon chair is a sacred space for the client experience. It is important to know how we can best serve our clients without our ego preventing this. They don’t expect us to be a guru or to have all the information about every aspect of hair and world current affairs. They want to be seen, touched, feel a connection and have their hair washed/coloured/styled. Don’t overcomplicate it. We need to contribute to the happiness in their hair. We are not perfect. We don’t need to be perfect. What does the client sitting in your chair need? It’s so important to know how to use the tools and techniques with strong communication skills as a Hairstylist. I’m chatting with Podcast Host, Hair Stylist and Educator Crystal Green. Also known as Your Hair Mentor on social media and in her education biz. Crystal helps hairdressers in her coaching sessions to shift their mindset around being an artist and what hair means culturally. It’s important to then talk about who you serve, take the ego away, and become the mentor for your client in the salon environment. Working with Crystal as a coach could really help you. In this episode, we’re talking about the 3 most important aspects of a killer consultation in the salon and why it’s so important.   Listen to EP 158 of the Colour Kristina Talks Podcast for Hairdressers and Salon Owners to learn more about the sacred chair and mastering hair consultations for your client. -------------------- Want to learn more?

EP 157: Revolutionising Education in the Hair Industry with Piloroo
Have you ever seen a hairdressing workshop or event shared on social media that was in your city and you wished you were there but knew nothing about it? Or perhaps you’re an educator or want to become one and you’re struggling to know more about planning dates in particular locations that don’t clash with another guest artist with a massive following.   I have been booked by brands before and had the event cancelled due to the sales team not selling enough tickets & felt really disappointed that the few people who were keen to attend now miss out on learning with me. There must be a better way to centralise this in one place… and that’s exactly what my guest Clive Allwright and the team at Piloroo have done.   Piloroo is a Sydney-based start-up who are 100% committed to building a better marketplace for hair stylists, educators, salons and the general public. Their online platform offers salons a diverse choice when searching for a hair educator. Simultaneously, they offer stylists additional work, when it suits them, paid promptly and at rates they set.   This is fantastic news for our industry! All brands are welcome. All levels of experience can join the site and post their education event.   And because it’s for the hair, beauty and wellness industry only there’s no competition with music or arts events that often dominate regular ticketing sites. On other sites, Hairdressers can get a little lost because of the overwhelming number of events in their city.

There are so many different methods to social proof your salon business. Testimonials can help you appear to be trustworthy on Facebook and Google, for example. When clients are searching for a new hairdresser in their area they will often check out Instagram first then check them out on Google, and then go back into blogs and websites.

EP 151: Peroxide Choice for Redheads
Why is no one talking about redheads with unwanted patchy glowing haircolour? It's insanely important to know how to avoid hot roots and banding with reds but hairdressers seem to struggle with this and clients are trying to ignore the problem and just accept it. It doesn’t have to be like this! Now this is where colouring for Redheads can get very tricky, because not everyone wants to look like they just stepped out of a salon, right? Many red and copper clients want it to be “natural-looking”. Root Glow or Hot Roots is not natural. It looks like the colour formula is a F*ck-up! In this episode, we’re talking about Peroxide Choice for Redheads. I’ll be sharing with you 4 must-know pro tips specific to choosing developers for intermixing with red and copper hair colours. --------------------- Register for my Live online Copper Hair Colour Masterclass. Get your free ticket here.

EP 150: What is Cowgirl Copper? Deciphering trends the easy way...
Copper will always be trending, whether we call it Kendall Copper, Cowgirl Copper or Pumpkin Spice,  it’s a classic colour that all Hairdressers must know how to do. You can not simply have one tube of colour you mix up for every Copper request because there are so many variations that range from brownish caramels to vibrant orange and everything in between. Cowgirl Copper, also known as Red Copper or Rusty Red, draws its inspiration from the American West.  What sets it apart is the balance between fiery red and natural copper hues, creating a mesmerising, multidimensional effect that's both vibrant and wearable. Cowgirl Copper is the hottest colour trend of the moment & it’s a heck of a lot spicier than Caramel. I love this trend within the red hair colour spectrum because it’s luring more and more brunettes to try something new. They're stepping away from the ash balayage requests and feeling brave to get a warm glow-up. Yay! Finally! In this podcast, I made an exciting announcement!  I'm hosting a LIVE Online FREE Masterclass for Hairdressers and Salon Owners to learn How To Achieve Copper Hair Colour without Red or Root Glow. For the first time, I'm including 3 epic bonus lessons that are shared as a series in the leadup to the main event in just over a week. Registration for tickets has opened today!

EP 149: The Secret to Gold Grey Coverage Hair Colour
As a hairdresser, I understand there's a lot of misleading or contradictory information about hair colour formulations. It's time to stop sacrificing brightness and tone with fashion colours for grey coverage and vice versa. It's also time to stop blaming the brand you use. In this podcast episode, I’ll share the Secret why choosing Gold instead of a Natural Base is not your best option for Fashion colour Grey Coverage, including Redheads! To achieve consistent and predictable grey coverage results, always opt for 'N' in grey coverage, including for Redheads! 'N' is more predictable than using 'G'. Most 'N' series already contain Gold, so in fact, you're already using some Gold when you opt for this.  If you have a Redhead grey coverage request and choose to use 'Gold' you might get grey coverage. You might also get Root Glow. You will definitely get more Gold than desirable and probably end up needing to correct it with toners. Don’t do it! Gold is a “NO” from me. Whatever the percentage of grey your client has is the percentage of ‘Natural’ or Base colour you will need to cover their greys successfully. Trust me. That works. I’ve built my wildly successful haircolour business by becoming the go-to girl when Redheads find their first grey.

EP 147: How to confidently deal with difficult clients & prevent burnout, with Danny Lent
Ever felt the weight of the world on your shoulders? As hairdressers, we often give so much of ourselves to our clients that we forget to replenish our own spirits. It’s time to wave goodbye to burnout, anxiety and those limiting beliefs!  There’s a powerful technique that’s been quietly revolutionising the beauty and wellness industry: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping. As hairdressers, we know that our chairs often become confessional booths, with clients sharing their innermost thoughts and emotions. This can be really challenging for hairdressers to navigate, especially when you have your own emotional shit to deal with. I’m talking with Australian hairdresser and educator, Danny Lent, about working through limited beliefs and becoming fearlessly authentic using EFT Tapping.  What if we told you that EFT can help you become more confident and grounded in and outside your salon? In this podcast episode, we're diving into a fascinating topic that's all about transforming not just hair, but also your state of mind.   So, whether you're snipping, styling, or coloring, get ready to tap into a new realm of holistic well-being that could revolutionize the way you approach both your craft and your life.  Listen to learn how to tap away anxiety and how healing can be F-U-N!! ------------------------------------ Steal My 3 Top Trending Colour Formulas for Redheads here: https://www.kristinarussell.online/stealmyformulas Full show notes can be found at https://www.kristinarussell.com.au/147 SEND ME A DM ON INSTAGRAM - let's chat! https://www.instagram.com/colourkristina

EP 140: Guaranteed No Stress Scheduling Apps for Social Media
As a hairdresser, you already know how crucial social media is for growing your business and attracting new clients. But with the demanding nature of our profession, finding the time to consistently post on multiple platforms can be challenging. That's where scheduling apps come in. They offer a range of benefits that can help streamline your social media strategy and make your life easier. Whether you're an independent stylist or work at a salon, scheduling apps can revolutionize the way you manage your online presence. First and foremost, scheduling apps save you time. Instead of logging into each social media platform individually to post content, you can plan your posts in advance and schedule them to be published automatically.  This means you can dedicate a specific time each week to create content and then let the app handle the rest. Imagine the freedom of not having to worry about posting on Instagram while you're busy serving clients! Another advantage of scheduling apps is the ability to maintain a consistent posting schedule. Consistency is key in the world of social media. When your followers know when to expect new content from you, they're more likely to engage with it and keep coming back for more. With scheduling apps, you can plan your posts in advance, ensuring a steady stream of content without any gaps or lapses.
