The color habits of clients have changed over the past few seasons and with that, stylists must continue to evolve their services in the salon to meet these needs. While grey coverage is still one of the most profitable and consistent color services in the salon, switching root color and highlights are quickly gaining ground. 

As self-care and wellness become paramount, some of the biggest changes being noticed are that clients are looking for more low-maintenance ways to keep their color looking great while also improving the look and feel of their hair — which has left many starting to prefer more natural tones.

This season as shades warm and stylists look for new ways to enhance hair texture and individual skin tones, Wella Professionals Perfect Lights utilizes Koleston Perfect to create high definition color with blended multi-tonal reflections that perfectly accentuate this movement.
