"Ask Dames" Tip of the Week: TO TALK, OR NOT TO TALK

When I'm with a client, I tend to keep things always directed toward their hair and overall image. To be blunt, I’m not interested in hearing about their dog or what they had for dinner last night, LOL. II’ve heard it all! Sometimes silence is golden; it keeps you focused--especially if you need to keep the client SUPER still. Don’t be frightened to say, "I need you to keep your head still and we can chat more in a bit." It's better to say this than to allow the conversation to get in the way of your cut. But, you obviously don’t want to be cold or uninteresting to the client, either. Just take occasional pauses to assess the situation; remember that you're in control, you’re the expert.

Pulp Riot has taken Instagram by storm—their message, products and influencers have created a brand that stylists everywhere just can’t get enough of. Making their debut on the COLOR stage, they talked through some of Instagram’s newest and hottest color techniques and then demoed a few cut and styles to show off that sweet, sweet Pulp Riot color. #behindthechair #thebtcshow

Just as the solar eclipse made its way over Austin, the Kenra Professional team took the BTC stage for their sixth year in a row. And, as one of the only teams to be with us since the beginning, they made the stage their own and hit us with bomb color tips and celeb-worthy upstyles. Laken Rose, @hairandmakeupbysteph, Cassie Siskovic and David Lopez talked the importance of products, getting creative without always having to prelighten and perfecting your styling skills. #behindthechair #thebtcshow

Joico brought together haircoloring masters Vivienne Mackinder and Mark Minetti and social media stars @stylistricardosantiago, @philipring and @larisadoll for a presentation overflowing with color. So many models. So many formulas (which will all be up on behindthechair.com later this week!). So much education. First, Vivienne, Ricardo and Mark shared tips on how to complement different face shapes and use haircolor to contour. Ricardo shared his favorite rose gold formula (which he says is still his most-requested color in the salon) and Mark demoed an amazing peachy blonde. Then, Larisa and Phil shared a new color technique they’ve been working on for three months JUST for our show! #behindthechair #thebtcshow
