As Bob Dylan once said in his famous 1964 hit, “The times, they are a-changing.” Things are definitely different for everyone in almost every industry as a result of the effects of COVID-19, but what does that mean for salon professionals? Well, it could mean a lot of different things depending on your specific local and state regulations, but in any case, you are faced with increased disinfection, sanitization, and/or sterilization procedures while handling an influx of clients who either had their appointments rescheduled or are currently still waiting on the books. With added procedures and more clients/less time, how do you go about taking care of them all in a timely manner? Kenra Professional has several tools in its color and product portfolio to provide time-saving services that will help you see more clients, and ultimately make more money, in less time!
Kenra Color Rapid Toners
A great way to save time on highlighting services is to use a demi-permanent color for toning that processes very quickly. Kenra Color has Rapid Toners that are designed to work in 5 minutes or less, and usually—its less!
Kenra Color Studio Stylist Express
Most permanent color on the market has a standard process time of 30-40 minutes, right? But did you know Studio Stylist Express covers gray and processes in just 10 minutes? This is a huge time-saver that could potentially help you take on a few more clients in your day, or at least compensate for the additional time now needed to sanitize between each guest, so either way it’s a win-win. There are 12 shades in the portfolio including a Neutral series allowing for customization, gray coverage, and flexibility while saving that valuable time on root retouches and shorter hairstyles.
Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray
There are also a few products that will help you to speed up your services—saving time in the salon and at home. Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray is a must have for this type of situation. The lightweight formulation provides thermal protection of up to 428 degrees while reducing your blow dry time by up to 50%! It is a great tool that allows both the stylist and the client to “dry less and live more.” For fine hair textures, there is also a Blow Dry Mist in a lighter formulation with the same benefits.
Kenra Platinum Air Dry Crème 6
Maybe your client is not looking for a blowout that day, or she’s a “Wash-N-Go” type of person. We still want to put something in her hair to help condition and control frizz. Kenra Platinum Air Dry Crème 6 is a low hold, leave in styling crème that is ideal for all hair types and reduces air dry time by up to 59% while resisting humidity and frizz at the same time! This is the perfect solution to get your client out the door and onto her next stop.
