Interview with Dedee:

How did you find out about Advanced Coloration, approximately when did you switch to AC? Met the sales and marketing manager. I switched my Professional Color Line approximately 9 to 10 months ago.

What where the factors or things that made you want to switch your Color Line to Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color?  The performance of the color, the healthy condition of the hair after coloring, the technology of the color process with Advanced Coloration is revolutionary and is so much better for your hair, it allows more pigment in smaller molecules to enter the hair along with conditioner that go inside the hair itself, without having to blast the cuticle open due to low ammonia therefore the cuticle closes more easily and securely which aids in retaining the original color without fading.

What are the key things or differences in using Advanced Coloration versus your prior Color Line?  The condition of the hair after coloring is so much better, the length of time that the color stays true is amazing. Also the ease of formulation, one of the easiest lines to formulate available in the marketplace today.

Have you completed the Educational Training Classes at Advanced Coloration?  Completed thru which level? What things did you find appealing about the training with Advanced Coloration? Yes, I have completed all three levels, I love the support from the staff and educators and the hands on training for color correction.

Do you place your orders via the Advanced Coloration Website? What are a few things or advantages in doing business with Advanced Coloration? Yes, I simply sign in, place my order and I receive it the next day!! So simple, especially when I am replenishing my retail stock for my customers because the Shampoos and Conditioners as well as the gel, mousse and hairspray just fly off of my shelves!!!

If you were to state a few key differences in how the color line is used or performs versus your previous line can you please list them here: Easy formulation, true to swatch colors, improves condition of hair, shine of hair and lasting color.

Do you purchase the retail shampoo and conditioners and styling from Advanced Coloration? Can you please tell me what you like about the retail products? The shampoos and conditioners improve the condition and healthiness of the hair from the first time you use it to a very marked improvement after two weeks of use. Hair spray is glue free so you can comb out and use heat on hair again to restyle with out melting glue on the hair. Works as a thermal protector when restyling.

In conclusion would you like to share a statement that sums on how Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color has made your job as a Colorist more enjoyable or easier? I am more knowledgeable due to the support and education that is always at your fingertips via the website or a phone call away. I do not have to leave my salon to get product so I can be accessible to my customers. I have more retail business because the products really work!!!! No guesswork in adding tones to base colors, A/C has already done that for you. I love seeing happy customers that know they have received a service that is actually good for their hair!

This week’s Featured Stylist:  Linda Phelps, Master Cosmetologist since 1982, Licensed in Georgia and Florida currently resides in Blairsville, Georgia.

 

Linda is a Colorist and previously used Schwarzkopf color, as well as Paul Mitchell and Redken.

She has been a colorist for over 30 years and converted to Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color in 2011. She located Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color via the internet and contacted Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color to find out more about the line. She was invited to a personal introduction session at the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color Training Center in Buford Georgia and learned the basics of the line. According to Linda she was impressed by the training coordinator and how easily the line was to use and the results she saw were impressive.

Linda purchased the color package and began to use the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color on her current and new clients and she said “I have never been happier with a Hair Color Line or Hair Care Products as I am with Advanced Coloration, they are SUPERIOR products to anything I have used in the past.”

Linda was asked if she would share a few key differences in the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color line versus Schwarzkopf that she had been using and her answers were as follows:

“It mixes 2 parts developer to 1 part color, and the color tube is large at 3.4 ounces. I get much more color for my money.”

“No damage to the hair when using the Bleach from Advanced Coloration. It is so easy to use!”

“The Color and the Hair Care leaves the hair so soft and shiny.”

“I have no fear using Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color , I select the desired target color, follow the very simple formulation process ( I learned in the level 1 class) and then measure and mix and I get a great result  EVERY TIME!”  “Previously when I mixed with other colors I never was quite sure what the result would be…I often just hoped the result was what I wanted! With Advanced Coloration I get the exact result I was going for, no more hoping just results!”

Wow you can hear for yourself from an experienced stylist that there are some very good differences between the Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color Line and others that she has used previously. Here is a breakdown in the key differences of Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color versus Schwarzkopf that Linda was using:

Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color mixes 2 parts developer to 1 part color and are a demi, semi and permanent color all in one line.

Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color does not have that strong ammonia odor when mixing and applying the color to the client.

The Bleach is easy to mix and does not swell up and crawl out of the bowl or the foils. It is very gentle and does not streak, spot or leave the clients hair damaged when mixed well and used properly.

The color cannot over process. Let’s say that again, you cannot over process a client with Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color, with the ammonia at ½% it will stop processing and not over process and go “dark”.

The Gray Hair coverage is so easy to achieve. Simply use the  10 volume developer with your target color from the swatch book mix 2 parts developer to 1 part color, apply to the client’s Gray for 30 minutes and it is covered. No mixing additional “N” to achieve grey coverage.

We also asked Linda what she liked best about Advanced Coloration as a Company.  She said “She loved doing business with Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color as we made her feel part of the team, like family, our training was the best she has ever attended and she learned so much and wants more! In addition she also mentioned “that our pricing was a great bonus to our line…she got amazing performing products and she got to put profit into her business!”  She also said “You have amazing customer service and ship the product quickly right to my location!”

Linda also wanted to share with everyone that her color business has increased A LOT and she thanks the beautiful results of Advanced Coloration Professional Hair Color for assisting her. She says it is “AMAZING AND SELLS ITSELF once someone has the color applied and can see the results!”  We at AC say GO LINDA!

We have many customers just like Linda and we will be writing about them in the coming weeks so check back to read about them and their business!  They will also be sharing tips and experiences and photos of their work on our Facebook Page so make sure to “LIKE US” and join us for more conversation.

Following Directions…

After many, many hours of research and discovery, a company will produce a new product. With all the resources available to them, they work out a set of instructions that when precisely used will create a specific result.

This would be the “standard procedure” for using that product.

The product is then marketed and sold to the consumer.

When the consumer uses the product and follows the directions exactly they get exact results, however, if they do not follow the instructions they do not get the results they expected.

In years gone by, I would purchase an item, take it home, pull it out of the box, and start to put it together. Normally I would get three quarters of the way into it… run into trouble, curse, jump up and down… and finally, after all the frustration, I’d read the instructions.

99% of the time I had skipped a step, left something out or put it together upside down. This would end up costing me more time than just reading the instructions from the start.

It is human nature to blame the product rather than to look at the way one has used that particular product.

The result of the above example cost me a lot of time (and a bit of a blow to my pride) but in a salon situation, when it comes to your clients and the results you achieve in business; the ramifications have far greater consequences.

Over the years I have worked with quite a number of people who are true professionals and leaders in their fields. They have been hairdressers, actors, photographers, make-up artists, carpenters, musicians, pilots; nearly any profession you can name. There’s one thing they all have in common: they understand the laws or rules in the area they work in.

While I myself am a great believer in “bending the rules” or “pushing the limits”  there is a big difference between bending the rules because they are known and throwing rules aside and making up your own procedure without understanding why the rules and procedures are there from the start.

AC Products are in many ways not that much different in how they are formulated or used by the Professional Hair Stylist or Colorist. There are a few significant points of difference.  First it is micro molecule hair color and very low ammonia at .5% and contains amazing healthy conditioning formula. It’s not the same old color you’ve been using with a different label. Thus treating it like it is the same is the only thing that makes this product not work for the Stylist.

These differences mean that there are some vital differences and changes in procedure (and subsequently you get better results).

When a manufacturer supplies instructions it is for the benefit of the customer – so that the consumer can get the product that they purchased.

You can look over our procedures if you log in to our account and go to the manual, come take our certification classes or even arrange for a personal session with our Educators.

We discovered that every time a Stylist or Colorist has had a problem with AC Color they have done something other than following the procedure relevant to that head of hair or situation. The people that have had the most success with AC Color have followed the standard procedures and understand the rules in play.

With AC Color and the post color care and styling products you have an opportunity to revolutionize your color business. The key thing is that you understand what it is and how to use it.

It is Low Ammonia (you must have ammonia or MEA or some other form of chemical to open the hair cuticle, this is color chemistry 101). AC Color is actually easier to use, it’s true to the color chart, it lasts longer, gives you the most vibrant reds, etc. It can produce results in clients that cannot be obtained with other color lines for example 100% Grey Coverage with No need to add “N” , lift a client 9 levels with our bleach without damaging the hair, even never over process a client again even if you leave the color on 12 hours!!!

 

I know it all sounds too good to be true….

 

It is the future of hair color. Just understand its differences, understand the procedure and start creating a whole new color game for yourself!

To understand the differences of the AC Line and experience for yourself instead of just taking “our word” about it look at some of our before and after photos, set up a demo for yourself, come to a class and see that the line has just a couple of key standard procedures and you will become more than just a colorist you will be a color Expert to your clients and that one thing they can’t do without!

AC is changing the way Professional Hair Color is done without sacrificing performance! Not to mention we are putting profit back in your business as well! Yes that’s right we cost on average 65% less than the other lines.

Change can be a good thing especially when you have the proper knowledge!  You can text your first name to 770-609-4590 for more info.

Have a Shiny Hair Day!
