FastFoils is about to revolutionize the hair color industry


Think you know foils? Think again.

Many years ago I decided to change my hair color and went from my very dark hair to platinum blonde in a day. It was in the late 60s and I didn’t know any better. I ended up going back to my original color for a few years before trying again. The color processes had evolved by then, but nonetheless, I was still going through all sorts of ugly shades, including a bright orange. It took a long time and a lot of experimentation. Although most colorists thought they could achieve the color I was aiming for, they rarely hit the mark.

It wasn’t until I met David Miramontes, my colorist and hairstylist to date, that someone finally managed to make me the perfect blonde. He darkened my base and added highlights on a regular basis. About a year later, I was finally satisfied with my color. Traveling around the world as a publicist, I often had to go to salons that helped destroy my hair with harsher chemicals. My hair was breaking at the crown, so it took months to grow back, and David would be seriously mad at me.

With age, your hair becomes finer and more delicate. You have to be very careful if you want any left over. So when I heard about a new product on the market called FastFoils, which was revolutionizing the foil industry, I became extremely curious and jumped at the chance to meet a Canadian colorist. Ben Barkworththe inventor of Quick Sheets.

I sat down with Ben, a shy, soft-spoken veteran of the hair industry who told me how the idea came about.

While working at London Fashion Week, Ben, who wore an all-black uniform that most colorists and stylists wear, realized how hot it was. Knowing that black color conducts heat and heat speeds up processing time. That’s when the idea of ​​black hair sheets came to Ben’s mind.

Although black hair foils are nothing new, the design behind FastFoils is different and unique. His invention transfers and retains heat more efficiently than ordinary foils, allowing for a twenty-five percent faster processing time, while using weaker developer and therefore less damaging to hair and easier to remove from hair. After extensive research and testing, FastFoils hit the market.

This product works great for both the client who doesn’t like sitting under the dryer for a long time and the colorist who can add an extra appointment per day. FastFoils is a breakthrough hair tool that has grown nearly 900% since last year, catching the attention of salon owners and celebrity stylists, turning the heads of several elite colorists in the industry, including the digital creative director of Trace Professional and co-host of No Stylist Left Behind podcast, J Ladner.

While foils are truly a game-changer in the hair color world, the innovation doesn’t stop there.

The brand will launch a set of brushes and larger size foils that are not currently available from any other manufacturer.

“My goal as a leader is to inspire, educate and create,” said Barkworth.

Congratulations Ben, you have achieved your goal and have helped us all in the meantime.
