The team shared the Remi Cachet love at ProHairLive

The team took Remi Cachet to leading hair show ProHairLive in Manchester last weekend to share with hairdressers all things Remi Cachet – the fabulous range hair and choice of application methods.   We had such a great two days and just want to share our  top 5 most asked questions from the show.

1) What does ‘remi’ mean? Some people thought that ‘remi’ referred to the grade of hair. Remi is referring to the hair cuticle being intact and undamaged. If the cuticle is intact and the hair is healthy and strong; then the hair is better quality and will last longer.

2) How long do they last? This depends on the range of hair used and also the care & maintenance regime. Our Luxury Range is high quality Chinese Remi hair which lasts on average up to 6 months plus. The Elegance Range is high quality Mongolian/Russian mix that will last on average up to 9 months plus. Our founder, Vicky has been wearing her Elegance Mini Tips hair (with the Mini Locks application) since Salon International last October and they still look fabulous.

3) Is it double drawn hair? Oh absolutely YES the cuticle is correct from the root to the ends

4) Which is the most popular application type? This would have to be our Mini Locks – stylist love applying them and clients love how small, discreet and flat they lie in the hair.

5) Does this damage the hair? Good training in correct application is essential here. None of the application methods we use and train in cause damage to the hair so long as expertly applied and with the client following the maintenance instructions provided.

It was our Tape Hair & Mini Locks that had the most attention; lots of love for our balayage range subtle ombre tones and for the fact that we have stock of those important summer blondes.

See how we got get our favourite Middlesborough lass to sing ‘You Bring Me Joy’

So when Amelia Lily calls to get her hair done, our MD Victoria Lynch stepped up to the chair.   Amelia has had a break from extensions but is back with just one packet of 16” Elegance Hair by Remi Cachet colour 60 and I think from her tweets we can say she is happy with her hair.  We love her selfie too!

Since being a finalist on X-Factor two years ago, she has had a couple of Top Ten hits including ‘You Bring Me Joy’ and has been on the tour circuit all summer and is just back from tour dates throughout Europe.   We can’t wait to see what
she does next.  Xx
