Glossing truly is just another phrase that we use versus a Toner, it’s a semi-permanent hair color either way, and in my experience I believe that the word Gloss sounds much more appealing to clients then Toner due to the stigma that toners have represented for decades in salons which meant /means ‘Fix it’. It can take the negative out of the automatic thinking clients do that something went wrong with their hair color. Also we need to rid some traditional salon color verbage such as, ‘your hair is fried, ‘I’ll slap some color on or you need a toner on your bleached hair etc. etc. all negitives, use ‘your hair is dehydrated, and ‘I will apply your color, "lets color gloss your hair, simple etiquettes yes!
