Eco-Lite Products along with Beth and Carmine Minardi are pleased to announce that the Minardi Color Perfect Lighting system is now lighting up 650 salons nationwide. The cutting edge salon lights were designed specifically for salons by world-renowned colorist Beth Minardi and celebrity stylist Carmine Minardi and are manufactured by Eco-Lite Products.
Beth Minardi is quoted, “I’m thrilled that 650 salons across America have turned on the lights – Minardi Color Perfect lights! I also work behind the chair every day, so I know how important it is to accurately see and evaluate the color and styles we create. ”
Upon launching in 2009, the lighting system quickly garnered industry-wide attention and won the prestigious International Beauty Industry Innovator Award at the 2009 and 2010 America’s Beauty Show®. Just two years later, salons across the country are raving about it and designers have begun specifying Minardi Color Perfect Lighting into their salon design plans as well.
Minardi Color Perfect lighting is comprised of three different fixtures each of which has a specific function for a salon. Salons can greatly benefit from using one or all three of the lights.
The task lights, which are a mere 18 watts and use state of the art LED technology, create a 3’ to 4’ circle of light around the stylists chair and project a perfect color making hair look the same both inside and outside of the salon.
The mirror light, which comes in two sizes and can be wall mounted or mounted to a ceiling in a pendant style, uses between 7 and 14 watts of power, is essential because it eliminates circles under the eyes while adding a warm glow to the skin and an overall healthy look to the complexion warmth to the skin. This is the light the client sees as they are sitting in the chair.
The ambient lighting provides general lighting for the salon. There are several energy efficient options all of which spread an even canopy of bright soothing light. Salons using fluorescent lighting that struggle with the shadows and poor color quality that fluorescents are known for as well as salons using the extremely hot and inefficient halogen lights will welcome the brilliance and tone that is emitted by the ambient lighting.
We are “… excited to see the growth of Minardi Color Perfect Lighting … our company, along with Beth and Carmine Minardi, spent countless hours designing, testing and modifying these lights until they produced the perfect balance of color, tone and power” said Howard Gurock, co-owner, Eco-Lite Products. “Salons across the country call us every day to thank us for helping to make their salons more successful and we take a lot of pride in knowing that in addition to helping the salons we are also helping the environment” said Jeff Gasman, co-owner, Eco-Lite Products.
