Hair Highlighting Strips

Polystyrene hair highlighting strips have a beautiful aesthetic appearance that cannot be matched by aluminium.

At Avifilm Malta we are always looking for new applications for our co-extruded multi layer polystyrene foam so it was with great excitement that we entered into the field of hair highlighting foam wraps for the professional colourists and stylists in the late 1990s. This product was developed as an environmentally friendly alternative to aluminium foil and instantly proved to be very popular with professional hair colourists around the world. The product goes by many different names – foam wraps, foam meche, high light strips, thermal highlighting strips and foam sheets to name a few.

Professional hair colourists around the world now use polystyrene hair highlighting strips as an alternative to aluminium foil for highlights. They find that the properties of polystyrene foam are superior to those of aluminium foil and the availability of different coloured highlighting foams enables easier control of timing for different shades of the highlighting job. Initially developed in Canada, Avifilm Malta’s highlighting foam can now be found in professional hair salons all over the world.

As contract manufacturers we will provide you with a finished packed product, to your specifications and packaging requirements. Colours vary for different requirements but white, gold, pink, blue and silver have been the most popular colour highlighting foams for this application. Packaging is normally in boxes of 200 hair highlighting strips, with 20 boxes to a carton -but again we are very flexible – you will find that working with Avifilm Export Corporation Malta is easy and you always get what you want.

Avifilm Malta works with third party packaging designers who will ensure that your highlighting foam is packaged in a box that amplifies your brand whilst stressing the quality of the product inside. Working with your logos and design ideas we guarantee that your foam highlighting packaging will always stand out against other products on the market. Alternatively clients provide us with the finished artworks, as the highlighting foam will be part of a bigger range of hair products. Either way, our printers ensure fast turnaround of top quality printed boxes that will enhance our client’s presence on the shelves and in the professional salons.
