Grey just got cooler thanks to Wella Professionals Luxelights Service, which is designed to work alongside the new Cool Collection – the four new resistant cool coverage shades in the Koleston Perfect ME+ Pure Naturals Collection.

Grey just got cooler with Wella Professionals Luxelights Service

The Wella Professionals Luxelights Service incorporates Wella Professionals four new shades – 55/02, 66/02, 77/02 and 88/02, which offer 100% grey coverage for an intense cool tone and anti-brass effect.

The Luxelights service will tap into your 35-55 year-old client base who see covering grey as their number one reason for visiting the salon.

The Luxelights Service moves away from heavy, block colour and dynamic contrasting shades. Instead, it focuses on colouring grey hair in a subtle way with natural colour results.

For longer hair, it can be used to reveal natural highs and lows within the lengths and ends to give the illusion of natural, sunkissed and youthful hair.  For curly hair, use Luxelights in a horizontal pattern around the head to create a halo effect. Medium weaves can be used for fine hair and medium slices can be used for hair that is more coarse.

Grey coverage Wella Professionals Luxelights Service

Use Luxelights to get the best grey coverage for your clients

Formulation – Use the correct amount of natural shades to your formula. Mixed 1:1 with Welloxon Perfect. For 30%-50% grey use 1/3 of Pure Naturals shade and for 50% to 100% grey use 1/2 of Pure Naturals shade.

Application – Start application on the area with the highest percentage of grey.

Saturation – Don’t spread the product off the root. The new creme formula is softer and spreads more easily.

Timing – It takes 30 to 40 minutes without heat and 15 to 25 minutes under heat, but always check the results before rinsing.
