About Foil Me
Foil Me was curated from the desire to help colourists have an easier, more enjoyable experience in the salon. We are a brand synonymous with creation, innovation, appreciation and integration. Our foils and brushes have been and always will be designed for you, the savvy hair artist. Each foil collection is unique and varies in size, thickness, colour, style and graphic designs and our brushes vary in width and length to ensure you're painting your canvases with ease. To find out more about specific products and their benefits, please view our collections here.
Unlike other embossed foils that may tear easily or be too difficult/stiff to move, our foils are specifically designed for hairdressers in that we have ensured you can fold and move your foils with ease, whilst having confidence they won’t tear. Our signature embossing ensures more grip, minimal product is needed, bleeding is reduced and processing time is faster. If you would like, you are welcome to visit the reviews on any of our collections, or you may search #foilmefoils on Instagram to see what people are saying about us and our exclusive salon essentials.
Our foils are designed to be fine to ensure a more enjoyable and efficient application process that guarantees stunning results. Most of our range is based on our Original style. However, for those of you who prefer a thicker foil, we do provide our Heavy styles which are 18 microns. Many of our Foil Me Movers who were using a heavier foil before approaching us were worried that a finer foil would tear, however, after trying our foils, they, and an overwhelming amount of colourists leave reviews remarking that they "can’t go back" – please visit a product page and scroll down to view the reviews.
Our foils are unique and specifically designed for the hair industry; they are designed on what you, the savvy colourist, want and need in order to achieve the best results for your clients. We also design our foils with your happiness in mind; many of our designer collection are based on collaborations and colours to ensure the experience you have with your products and your client are emotionally connected. We are constantly evolving to suit the changing trends and colourist’s needs, which means you will always receive the premium and unique products that provide your salon with a point of difference.
Like all aluminium foil, Foil Me'sfoils are made from a percentage of recycled aluminium; this percentage fluctuates with every order due to the amount of raw and recycled materials available. All aluminium foil is produced this way and it is impossible to have a hair foil that is made completely from recycled hair foil and aluminium scrap foil. Mixed foil from post and pre-consumer scrap metals can only be used for aluminium alloy die-castings, aluminium alloy bars for construction, engine cases, etc and the quality of the foil is dependent on the aluminium alloy chemical composition of Fe, Mg or Zn elements. It is impossible for aluminium foil to be made from 100% recycled aluminium as the foil’s physical property will be changed to the point where it will crumble and not be a viable option for use as a hair foil.
YES. The foils can be recycled over and over again without loss of properties. The packaging is also 100% recyclable.
To recycle, please wash the foil thoroughly and roll several sheets into a ball that is of a tennis ball size. Any foil you recycle will be made into aluminium products, but not necessarily hair foil. Each of our boxes has a recycling logo, along with simple instructions on how to recycle our foils. Of course, please contact us if you have any enquiries regarding recycling our foils.
Foil Me cares about the environment and the impact the hairdressing industry can have on its health. Therefore it is important to us that our products are made from items that are 100% recyclable. Our brush handles are made from a polypropylene, abbreviated as PP, which is a recyclable thermoplastic polymer widely used in many different products. PP’s resin identification code is 5, and it is recyclable.

Our bristles are vegan (not boar hair) and they are made from a polybutylene plastic (PB or PBT) and they are also 100% recyclable.
To recycle, please dispose of your brush in the recycling bin provided by your council.
