RED HOT: Formula and How-To Plus Maintenance by MS

Amanda Billardello from Glitz Salon in Rochester, Michigan helped turn up the heat on her client's haircolor.  And a sleek cut and shiny finish highlights the fiery red Billardello created following the steps below.
"To formulate the bright red I created a few different formulas using Gk@all and RR@all by elumen," Billardello said. "I tested each on a white sheet of paper until I reached the desired tone I was looking for. I did not measure the color-- it was strictly created by eye. My client now uses the elumen shampoo and conditioner to keep her red vibrant and glossy!"
STEP 1.Pre -lighten the hair using silk lift lightener to about a level 8-9
STEP 2.Shampoo the hair with a clarifying shampoo 
STEP 3.Glaze from scalp to ends with 9G in colorance (evening out the tones)
STEP 4. Rinse and blow dry completely
STEP 5.Apply elumen scalp to ends and process for 30 minutes

Olez Tip:
Add value to this service by doing an O2 treatment in combination with the color. Using O2 eliminates having to use a clarifying shampoo which ultimately drys out the hair living it feeling brittle and lifeless. O2 will detoxify the hair, remove all buildup, toxins and impurities while infusing the hair with nutrients, leaving the hair soft and hydrated. This gives the stylist a clean canvas to work on prior to applying color, resulting in a longer lasting more vibrant hair color.

Boca Cosmetics Group’s Boca Academy Excites and Motivates Stylists During Olez® Training Seminar

Boca Cosmetics Group, manufacturer of Olez® and pioneers in the hair industry, recently welcomed Flamingo Beauty Supply, at their state of the art training center, Boca Academy. The education focused company hosted the daylong event which featured hands-on training on Olez’s five unique treatments.  Olez® utilizes groundbreaking technology and the finest natural ingredients to repair, nourish, and improve client’s hair. The product line includes: INCEPTION -Apple Stem Cell Therapy, O2 -Hair & Scalp Detox, Essence of Youth - Hair Anti-Aging, NutriFuze - Hair Diet and Advanced –Smoothing System (Smoke and Toxin Free).
In addition to becoming skilled in product
application, the attendees were instructed on how to communicate key features and benefits of the Olez® line to clients.  These never seen before services enhance salons’ existing offerings. By identifying client’s hair concerns, salon professionals learned how to integrate the products into their existing services menu. One example, O2, which cleanses and detoxifies the hair and scalp through a spa like experience, can be used in conjunction with a color service to enhance the results of the color, a treatment that the company calls “premium color service”, a service that provides greater results.  
“We had an amazing experience at our recent training session at Olez® Headquarters” said Tania Goyanes, Flamingo’s Vice President, Salon Division.  “The facility was beautiful and the hands-on training was informative and provided our stylists and DSC’s with the necessary information to take into their salons. Our stylists left extremely enthusiastic about the hair treatments and felt well prepared to market and provide these services to their clients.”
Boca Cosmetics Group looks forward to a full training schedule at Boca Academy. Hair care professionals interested in learning about Olez® or perfecting their techniques can email or visit to request an online demo with an Olez® product specialist.
