Q: What are the benefits of using Foil Me’s foils?
A: Foil Me is all about making your life as a colourist easier. The Foil Me ‘Grip Me’ range includes our signature embossing, which has many benefits for all hair foiling techniques. Our embossing allows our foils to be finer than most, whilst still being malleable and strong. The embossing also allows for our foils to grip the hair, meaning your foils won’t slip and slide, and will hold in place for you.
Our foils also save you time, as we specialise in pre-cut foils, meaning all those hours measuring and cutting foils by either yourself or your apprentice are over! Our convenient and sleek ‘tissue box’ design allows neat and quick dispensing, without sticking! Also, whilst processing, the air is able to circulate quickly around our embossing, allowing for a faster processing time.
We understand that different foiling techniques and hairstyles means you will need different length foils, which is why we provide our Foil Me lovers with a range of different sizes to choose from.
Q: I haven’t liked embossed foils that I’ve tried in the past. Why would I like Foil Me’s foils?
A: Unlike other embossed foils that may tear easily or be too difficult/stiff to move, our foils are specifically designed for hairdressers, so that you can fold and move your foils with ease, whilst having the confidence that they won’t tear. Our signature embossing ensures more grip, less colour used and faster processing time!

Q: What is the best way to contact Foil Me if I have an enquiry or feedback?

Q: Will I receive a tracking number for my delivery?
A: Each Foil Me lover is sent a tracking number via email, once their foils are on the way!
Q: What microns are your foils?
A: Our foils are designed to be finer than most, so that you are able to get closer to the scalp during application, with a guarantee for stunning results. Most of our range is based on our Grip Me Originals. However, for those of you who just love a thicker foil, we do provide our ‘Grip Me Heavy’ foils which are 18 microns. We have had many of our Foil Me lovers come to us loving heavy foil; however, this is usually due to not wanting their foil to tear, etc. After trying our foils, we have an overwhelming amount of reviews saying ‘I can’t go back’ – check out the reviews on our products to see what others have to say!
Q: How do I order outside of the USA?
A: If you’re from the Australia or New Zealand you can visit our Australian site - www.foilme.com.au). If you are from the UK, you can still order via this website (foilmefoils.com) or you can contact us direct to process an order manually.
Q: Why is Foil Me different from other foils?
A: Our foils are unique and specifically designed for the hair industry; they are designed on what you, the colourist want and need in order to achieve the best results for your clients. We are constantly evolving to suit the changing trends and colourist’s needs which means you will always receive the very best foil in the industry.
Q: Are your foils made from recycled foil?
A: Like ALL aluminium foil, Foil Me foils are made from a percentage of recycled aluminium; this percentage fluctuates with every release 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. It is dependent on the aluminium alloy chemical composition of Fe, Mg or Zn elements. If different kinds of aluminium foil waste mix together to produce hair foil, the foil’s physical property will be changed to the point where it will be just like toilet paper and have black marks on it.
Q: Is Foil Me 100% recyclable?
A: YES. It 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 how you can recycle our foils.
Q: Are your brushes recyclable?
A: 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 it is 100% recyclable also.
To recycle, please dispose of your brush in the recycling bin provided by your council.
