Meche for highlights allows you to attain incredibly high quality results. In the past, clients had to worry about problems like colour bleed and having to spend a lot of time in the salon to highlight their hair. Meche hair colour kits have made it possible to work with minimal chance of colour bleed, and the hair stylist can work up to 20% faster using meche colour strips compared to when they use foils and other colouring methods. So, how easy is it to use meche hair salon products?
Highlighting Hair with Meche Highlights Hair Products
Step 1: Assemble the equipment that you’ll need for the procedure i.e. Meche hair strips, gloves, a tail comb, sectioning clips, a tint bowl and a tint brush.
Step 2: Carry out the normal tests that you ordinarily would before any hair colouring procedure and ensure that the client is properly protected with a gown, towel and colouring cape.
Step 3: Section the hair into the usual eight sections. The colouring process will start from the nape of the neck to the front of the head.
Step 4: For each individual weave, place the opaque side of the meche highlight strips behind the hair. Try to get it as close to the root as possible and allow the adhesive part to stick to the hair.
Step 5: Using your tint brush, apply the clients preferred tint to the hair including the part on top of the adhesive bit. Close the transparent part of the meche strips as soon as you are done applying the tint and seal the adhesive part. Repeat this on every weave in every section working from the back to the front in rows.
Step 6: Keep checking the progress of the colouring process through the transparent side of the meche highlight strips, and don’t open the strips until the hair reaches the desired colour.
Step 7: Once the desired colour is achieved, head over to the backwash unit and wash the hair gently with warm water, ensuring that you focus on getting the adhesive part of the colour meche strips wet. This will allow the meche strips to easily slide off the hair.
Step 8: Wash and condition the hair as you normally would.
Pro stylist tip: If you are using bleach, leave a space of about 3 mm from the top of the header tape. This will provide space for expansion.
