Show Dad some love this Father’s Day with OLAPLEX
Oftentimes we see OLAPLEX being used in chemical services behind the chair. But OLAPLEX is not just for chemical services. OLAPLEX can benefit the men in your life (and in your chair) too. You can utilize the entire OLAPLEX line with every single service in your salon!
By now we are all familiar with Stand Alone Treatments and that everyone can benefit from them. For a brief refresher on Stand Alone Treatments, click here:
But, did you know that OLAPLEX is also beneficial on different hair types such as facial hair? Facial hair is different from scalp hair and is classified as “androgenic hair”. As with all hair, it goes through 3 different growth cycles/phases.
- Anagen- Active growth phase lasting anywhere from 2-6 years.
- Catagen- Transition phase. Shortest phase lasting 1-2 weeks. In this phase, hair is separated from the follicle and attached to the skin.
- Telogen- Resting phase. Hair is attached to the skin for 2-4 months while the follicle returns to the Anagen phase. Eventually this follicle produces a new hair fiber which will push out the existing hair, replacing it with a new one.
But did you know that facial hair has a flatter shaped follicle which oftentimes can make the hair more coarse and curly? Because of this, many men struggle with keeping their beards full, soft, hydrated and comfortable. Introduce them to OLAPLEX- the solution to their problems! They will be glad you did.
OLAPLEX Stand Alone Treatments are a great asset to your male guests salon appointment. You can utilize OLAPLEX N°.1 and OLAPLEX N°.2 as you would with any other service. Do you have a guest coming in for a haircut? Worried about the added time of a Stand Alone Treatment? No problem! Apply OLAPLEX N°.1 directly to your guest’s beard and let it process for 5-10 minutes while you begin your haircut service. After 10 minutes, apply OLAPLEX N°. 2 directly over the top of your guests hair and beard. Continue your haircut using No. 2 as a cutting lotion. Once you have completed the haircut service, take your guest back to the shampoo bowl and perform a shampoo and conditioner on the scalp and beard. (I recommend using OLAPLEX N°.4 and OLAPLEX N°.5) Style as usual. Now, how exactly are you supposed to shampoo your guests beard? This can be a little tricky at first, but it really isn’t hard for you or your guest. Below is an example of how easy it to shampoo a beard behind the chair.
If you would like to offer your guest an alternative to the Stand Alone Treatment, suggest an “OLAPLEX Mini Treatment” by just utilizing No. 2. You can charge a minimal fee for this add-on service, and your guest will still receive many benefits that OLAPLEX has to offer! This is an awesome way to introduce ANY of your guests to OLAPLEX.
They’re sure to love the results so much that they will want to maintain it at home. Most of the men I know hate having to use a ton of products, but they still want the results. OLAPLEX is PERFECT for them.
OLAPLEX retail products work on all hair types, (including beards) as well! They can apply OLAPLEX No. 3 once a week about 10 minute before hopping in the shower. Simply dampen their beard and apply a small amount of No. 3.
No. 4 and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner can be used on their scalp and beards. Not only can they multitask by cleaning and conditioning their hair and beard with No. 4 and No. 5, but many guests with beards report softer, shinier, more manageable beards that are more comfortable on their skin (and their loved ones) while many also report they have experienced even THICKER and FULLER beards. What’s not to love?
OLAPLEX No. 6 and No. 7 are an all time favorite for men with beards. This dynamic duo can be used individually, or cocktailed together and offer so many benefits for the hair and beard.
- Strengthens and hydrates
- Smoothing and eliminating frizz and flyaways for up to 72 hours.
- Dramatically increases shine
- Adds softness
- Enhances color vibrancy

and as with all OLAPLEX products, provide repair and protection from damage.
This Father’s Day, let’s give those Dad’s the gift of healthy hair with OLAPLEX. They will thank you.
Have your guest “cocktail” OLAPLEX N°.6 and OLAPLEX N°.7 together in their hand before applying to their hair and beard for a quicker application. This duo will leave their beard and hair looking and feeling amazing!
