What’s the difference between LumiShine Permanent Crème shades and the new LUMI10 Permanent Crème shades?

The new LUMI10™ shades deliver up to 2X* the shine and 100% gray coverage like original LumiShine—but in only 10 minutes! This rapid processing time is achieved thanks to our Quick Coverage System, which features concentrated dye molecules that process in 10 minutes when activated by the LUMI10 Accelerator.

*vs. untreated damaged hair 

Will the results be darker if my client has no gray?

LUMI10 is designed to cover 100% gray. If formulating for a client with no gray, you may adjust your formula to a lighter level due to the extra dye load.

What happens if I leave the color on longer than 10 minutes?

Due to the formulation of the Quick Coverage System™, color results will appear darker if left on longer than 10 minutes, and results will not be predictable.

Is the Ammonia level higher than typical permanent color?

No, the ammonia level is comparable to LumiShine Permanent Crème Color.

Is longevity sacrificed to attain the 10-minute speed objective?

No, LUMI10 is a permanent color; therefore, longevity is not sacrificed. 

Can I use LUMI10 between my foils when processing highlights?

Yes, just be mindful of overall processing time. Process your highlights until almost complete, then apply LUMI10 between foils and process for 10 minutes. 

How often can I use LUMI10?

As often as your client comes in for a regrowth touch-up, typically every 3-6 weeks.

How many levels of lift does LUMI10 provide?

LUMI10 Permanent Color delivers up to two levels of lift when mixed with the LUMI10 Accelerator.

What is in the LUMI10 Accelerator and what makes it work?

The Accelerator provides the extra boost of peroxide needed to ensure LUMI10 Permanent Creme Color delivers

Can I use another developer instead of the LUMI10 Accelerator?

For best results, we recommend LUMI10 be mixed with the LUMI10 Accelerator. If you don’t, your gray coverage will be compromised.

Can I mix regular LumiShine or YouthLock shades with my LUMI10 Permanent Crème Shades?

We do not recommend mixing LumiShine or YouthLock with LUMI10 and cannot guarantee shade predictability when mixed. We also cannot ensure color will develop in just 10 minutes.

When should I start timing my LUMI10 service?

The 10-minute timing process should begin after the application is complete.

When would I use LUMI10 vs LumiShine Permanent Crème Color?

LUMI10 is the ideal choice when you want to add an unplanned root touch-up to a cut, when walk-ins want to be “squeezed in,” and when you want a quick color service that minimizes person-to-person contact.

Can I use high-lift color with LUMI10?

No, LUMI10 is not designed to be mixed with high-lift color or any other hair color that requires a 20, 30, or 40 Volume developer. LUMI10’s dedicated Accelerator is specially formulated to work with LUMI10’s fast-processing technology to provide 100% gray coverage.

How does LUMI10 cover grays in 10 minutes with minimal damage?

The secret lies in our Quick Coverage System, which features the ideal concentration of dyes necessary to penetrate the hair fiber in 10 minutes under conventional ammonia levels. Unlike traditional LumiShine Permanent Color, which has a steady dye delivery process, the Quick Coverage System allows LUMI10 dyes to swoop into hair fibers at a fast pace—without compromising hair’s integrity or long lasting results. Please view the image on the right to see how the starting level of dye concentration affects speed and processing time.

Pro Tip: 
• Be careful not to overlap when using LUMI10 or banding will result. 
• LUMI10 develops fast. If you have a client with an extreme amount of hair, you may adjust your formula to a lighter level in your starting area. Make sure you use a timer. 


You know them. You love them. But you can’t always fit them in. 10 ways to increase your revenue with every just-say-nay-to-gray personality who walks in your door. Let’s meet the usual suspects….


Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry! says Claire…of her chronically 30-minute-late appearances at the salon.
But that doesn’t deter this clock-blocking cutie from expecting you to cover her gray in record time regardless. And you do it –because you have a secret weapon.


It’s bad enough when she first spots those wiry, little white babies winding their way through her don’t-call-it-gray hair. But turn the service into a full-on Gray-Coverage Appointment, and you may just lose her forever.
Instead: Nail those silver suckers fast and send her on her merry way so she can pretend she never saw you.


Call her chic, call her bougy; but whatever you do, don’t call our multiservice mademoiselle “high maintenance.”
She just needs that full highlight + cut + gray coverage + shine treatment in a swift, oneand-done appointment… because there are places to be and people to see.


Living the lockdown life has been important to our safety savvy client. But when her pandemic hair is beyond repair, she oh-so-tentatively dips a toe back in the salon for a color refresh — with a request to be in and out as fast as humanly possible.
Because there’s only so long a person can hold their breath.


Being able to win over Wendy –your “cashand-dash” client –by accommodating her on-the-fly appointments, puts a twinkle in her eye and extra €€ signs in yours. But you can only squeeze her in if you have speedy color that does.


Lunch break? What lunch break? This multitasking CFO barely has time for those almonds stashed in her desk, which is why squeezing in a quickie midday appt for her literally saves the day.


Do you think we could throw in a few highlights while we’re you’re covering the gray? And maybe cut in some layers?… And add a few beachy waves after the blowout?
Gotta love a client who loves to get her hair done –but fitting in all those “can we justs” when she’s already in the chair requires fast thinking… and even faster color options.


I’m one of the lucky ones because my hair doesn’t have a speck of gray, said no one ever. Which is why our denial-ridden dude needs a discreet and speedy color sesh to get him in and out faster than you can say, See ya later, Silver Fox!


Sometimes, her life is crazy busy…other times, she’s been hit by that I need to go blonde NOW whim… and, once in a while, a close-up inspection reveals all-new, unsettling grow-out.
Whatever the crisis, she needs to slide into your busy books ASAP; and only super-fast color’s gonna make it happen.


Between the 3 p.m. school pickup, Zoom meetings, homework, help and dinner prep, finding personal time invariably falls to the bottom of the to-do list. So when she does manage to steal away for a color appointment, it has to be quick-as-a flash so she can dash.
