A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Full Head Colour with E-Meche
Some hairdressers still use foil for highlights application on their clients. Foils are known to present certain challenges for modern hair stylists. In fact providing a full hair colour as natural looking and as effective as achieved with E-Meche highlighting strips is very difficult using foil strips.
Issues associated with foil highlight application include:
- Highlights and tone colouration do not cover the hair roots.
- Inconvenient crunchy noise from aluminium wrapping.
- Stains when there are reactions with non-compatible direct dyes or peroxides.
- Aluminium foil strips are heavy for clients, creating a less than great experience.
E-Meche is a modern alternative to foil-based hair colouring. It is a faster and more convenient way to give your clients the right looks with their preferred hair colour. The water-soluble adhesive meche strips pose little or no inconvenience to clients, and create a much more comfortable treatment.
Getting a Full-Head Hair Colouring with E-Meche
Unlike most foil highlights, E-Meche treats hair right from the roots, giving it a more natural appearance and leading to higher levels of satisfaction for clients.
The meche hair highlighting process is simple and easy to learn.
Below is a simplified step-by-step guide to getting a full head colour with E-Meche.
Brush the client’s hair down and add a classic full set of highlights using bleach, then wait for the hair to dry.
To start, section the client’s hair into half.
Follow up by sectioning it further into quarters.
Take 1cm sections of the hair and weave into preferred thickness.
Lift the woven section and place the e-meche pack in-between.
Rub in the highlight tint 3mm away from the root.
Keep applying the tint until you have covered a full head.
Ensure that you apply the bleach ¾ mm away from the top of the e-meche pack to give room for expansion of pro bleach.
To remove the e-meche pack, run water over it and allow the adhesive to dissolve. The pack will slide away.
Dry the hair with a soft cloth.
Style as desired.
The finished hair is a toned masterpiece.
