Step-by-Step Easy Meche Colour Highlighting Technique

To apply the perfect base colour highlights to the hair with the E-Meche technique, strands of hair are selectively woven and sealed in easy meche packs after the product is applied down to the roots.

The E-Meche hair plastic seals are transparent, thus allowing the hairdresser to check the colour as it develops during the highlighting process to control the application for better precision, tint and overall best results.

The transparent foils are stripped to the base of the hair with water-soluble glue tapes.

The client’s hair receives the right colour tones, highlights and lowlights that complement and accentuate their natural hair beauty, with no bleed or irritation to the scalp.

Next, the hairdresser washes over the transparent foil packets at the backwash unit, and they easily come off, as the adhesive strips are flexible and water-soluble. It leaves no mess, no bleeds and no irritation.

E-Meche highlights are also a great technique for clients with scalp problems, as the glue tape prevents the colour fumes from bleeding to the scalp, which could cause irritation.

What you get in the end is fabulous, bouncy and shiny natural looking hair that gives instant confidence and draws a smile. The result is perfect colour highlighting that is superior to the average achieved with any other method.
