It might come as a surprise to most but precision balances play an important part in the beauty industry. Using a scale is a must for a salon as it is crucial for hair stylists to carefully measure colour formulas for clients, especially to prevent hair loss and breakage. It is important to understand that there is chemistry behind the art of dying someone’s hair and balances can enable stylists to properly gauge toner and PH levels.
To ensure accurate measurements, this article will cover the importance of weighing hair dye, what type of balance is suitable and how we can help.
For hair stylists accuracy is crucial as a good hair makeover is extremely important to most. When a client loves their colour, they will most likely want the same colour again. With the use of a balance it allows the colour mixture to be perfectly accurate every time enabling the stylist to create a consistent formula for their client in future appointments. No-one wants to pay a lot of money for their hair and come out with a colour they didn’t ask for.
In addition to this, using a precision balance in a salon saves money on product waste. Depending on the client’s hair length and how much hair needs touching up, different amounts of product will be used every time. If the client has long hair they will need more product than someone with short hair (a root touch up will need less than a full head mixture) and the thickness in hair also applies to how much product the stylist would need to use. If the stylist is guessing how much product to use it will most likely go to waste, resulting in the stylist wasting money on product that isn’t cheap.
Another key factor of having a precision balance is that it saves stylists time. When a salon is busy stylists tend to rush between clients and many stylists ask for juniors to help – having the measurements of hair dye on record allows an easy process for the junior stylist to carry out dying the client’s hair.
Many stylists prefer to measure out their product by grams therefore having this on a balance allows for precision. A precision balance, with a clear digital screen that is fast and easy to read will come in handy especially during busy periods when stylists want quick and accurate measurements.
