SAFETY AND HYGIENE AT YOUR SALON

Keys for a COVID-FREE hairdressing salon

Lakmé is well aware of the situation that our sector is going to face and the difficulties that it may pose for your stylists and clients. You’ll soon have to adapt your spaces, equipment, staff management and the way you work to this new reality.

We’re with you in this mission and we have created this document to convert the salons into spaces that comply with the new safety and hygiene protocols. Turn the salons into a COVID-FREE place:

  1. STRATEGIC CHANGES IN YOUR SALON: Offer services only by appointment, keep the timing for each client and give them information about their safety.
  2. RECEPTION: It’s the client’s first impression. The hygiene and safety are basic in this area. As well as the use of masks, safety distance and a new payment method with card etc.
  3. WORK SPACES: Leave 2 meters between clients, the use of hydroalcoholic solutions and daily disinfection and ventilation will be very important.
  4. PERSONAL PROTECTION: It is important to use disposable material, not to share tools and disinfect utensils between each use.
  5. INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION FOR PROFESSIONALS: Regular hand washing, maintain safety distances and the use of gloves and masks will be very common in this new stage.
  6. PRODUCTS AND SALES AREA: Cleanliness takes centre stage. The salon, its materials and products must be cleaned and disinfected daily.
  7. RECEPTION OF ORDERS FROM SUPPLIERS must be contact-free.
  8. WASTE MANAGEMENT: Trash cans must have a lid and a pedal and use internal plastic bags in all garbage containers which have to be removed daily.
  9. SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS: Therefore, safety will be the first thing where basic topics such as frequent hand washing, safety distance, use of gloves and masks, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth and cover your mouth when coughing are recommended.

Remember! Following these protocols will be key in order to contribute to improve the actual world situation. Every gesture counts.

COLOR TRENDS

BLONDE-CARAMEL ECLOSION

It’s time to refresh the hair color and renovate the after-summer sun-kissed highlights.

The top trend for autumn is Blonde Caramel-Eclosion. An elegant blonde-caramel that lightens and sweetens facial features.

The hair color goes back to its essence using subtle bleaching techniques, the perfect one for this color is a freehand balayage. We combine different cold blonde shades that blend with the hair base and create a stunning dimension and a natural effect. LAKMÉ recommends to use K.blonde bleaching Clay for the freehand technique and demi-permanent Gloss coloring to combine different blond nuances, for example 10/20, 9/13 and 8/17 shades.

At home, follow the hair care routine with TEKNIA COLOR STAY and do not forget your ally TEKNIA WHITE SILVER once a week to neutralize unwanted yellow shades.

MAXIMUM PROTECTION TO YOUR HAIR

POLLUTION AND UV RAYS ALSO DAMAGE YOUR HAIR

Pollution and UV rays impact the hair as well as the skin. They are the most exposed areas of our bodies. We protect our skin from damage and our hair should receive the same attention, because when it’s not protected, it’s vulnerable. Minute toxic particles can easily penetrate the hair fiber and they can cause dryness and breakages.

These circumstances cause stress to the hair. The key is to follow a care routine that keeps the hair well hydrated by deeply conditioning it and protecting it with serums and oils. Lakmé has gone even further and designed FULL DEFENSE, a range of products that not only protect stressed hair, but that acts as a total protection screen against the harmful effects of our surroundings.

This range has increased protection against pollutants by 83% and has increased protection against UV free radicals by 24%.
