Balancing Act

Wella’s new Shinefinity

The recently launched Shinefinity by Wella Professionals has changed the game when it comes to helping your clients achieve a long-lasting colour glaze that stays true to tone. Shinefinity features innovative balanced pH technology that smooths the cuticle to provide shiny, healthy-looking hair. Shinefinity’s glaze offers zero lift and zero damage while remaining true to tone. With 32 shades available and two activator choices, Shinefinity can be used at every appointment and clients and stylist alike love the gentle formula that delivers amazing results.

Add Shinefinity to a balancing glaze for natural results 

To complement Shinefinity, Wella Professionals has launched a balancing glaze service that will allow you to offer clients a fortifying glaze treatment designed to add shine and healthy vitality to the hair. Now more than ever women are keen to achieve natural-looking hair colour results in pursuit of keeping the hair as healthy as possible and minimise the damaging effects of harsher colour treatments. As hairdressers and salon owners, we know that natural looking hair colour requires more than a simple root touch-up or highlights to achieve the desired results. By introducing Shinefinity to a balancing glaze, stylists can cater to their clients’ needs and ensure they leave the salon doors with glossy, healthy hair. 

Add a balancing glaze to your Koleston Perfect Root touch up service for rich, 100% grey coverage on the roots with multi dimensional high shine lengths and ends.

Koleston Perfect is Wella Professionals' purest permanent colour, helping stylists create bold and balanced colour with inimitable depth and shine. With a rich and varied colour palette which offers in excess of 100 shade options, it’s the perfect option for clients who require 100% grey coverage. Adding a balancing glaze to a Koleston Perfect root touch up service provides the hair with both multi dimensional reflects and strand silkiness that’s simply unmatched.
