How to Use

It’s more than color. It’s a work of art.

Because different parts of your hair take in color differently, Vidal Sassoon created Salonist, a revolutionary 2-step method that treats your roots and lengths separately. The result is stunning, seamlessly blended color with lots of depth and tones.

PREP

To begin, empty Tube 1 and Bottle 1 into the bowl and mix until smooth.

PRO TIP: For long, thick hair use two boxes of Salonist 8/3 Medium Gold Blonde hair color.

Then, using the tip of the brush to part your hair, divide it into ½-inch sections along the hairline.

STEP 1:

BRUSH ROOTS

Take ¾ of your mixture and brush the rich 8/3 Medium Gold Blonde color cream into your hairline. Massage your roots to ensure even coverage.

Because 8/3 Medium Gold Blonde is a standard shade, leave the color in for 20 minutes.

Prep for Step 2 by adding the Sassoon Serum in Tube 2 to the color cream still in the bowl. There should be about ¼ left.

PRO TIP: If you did not use ¾ of the product in Step 1, remove the excess product before adding serum.

STEP 2:

BLEND THROUGH LENGTHS

Scoop the new mixture out of the bowl and smooth and blend thoroughly through your hair, all the way to the ends. Massage the color all over, even at the roots for the best coverage. 

Because 8/3 Medium Gold Blonde is a standard shade, wait 10 minutes. 

FINISH

Wash hair with a color-safe shampoo, rinse and then apply Salonist Color Preserving Conditioner. Leave in for two minutes, then rinse again.

PRO TIP: Use Color Preserving Conditioner for every day washes to make color last longer.

Second box no longer needed

Having thick longer hair made it so I would have to use multiple boxes to color my hair before. The Vidal Sassoon Salonist has enough treatment to need just the one box with total coverage. It was easy to use with directions showing exactly how to apply. being able to shampoo right after was nice because I hate the "I have just dyed my hair" smell that usually last a few days. I used the medium gold blonde and was happy with the color results along with not having the brassy tones that sometimes appear at first with some blonde colors. Overall I was happy with the product and will purchase in the future.

Full color from root to tip with Vidal Sassoon Salonist

Wow! Just colored my hair with the new Vidal Sassoon Salonist hair color that they sent me to try. I must admit I was a little skeptical going into it. The directions had several more steps than my usual hair color, and I couldn't imagine it would make much of a difference. But it does! The first thing I noticed when I pulled the towel off my head was the nice bright blonde at the part and along the hairline around my face. Those areas usually come out a little more light brown with my usual hair color. But this new Salonist color left them a nice shiny blonde instead of a drab brown. It really wasn't hard to do, just a few more steps than my usual color. You get a little tray to mix the color in (doesn't mix quite as smoothly as a kind you shake up in a closed bottle). But the mixture is nice and thick and doesn't drip at all when you apply it. You do the roots and the hairline first. And the little brush you get works very well both for applying the color and for making the different parts in your hair. You leave that for 20 min, then add another part to the mixture and work it into the rest of your hair. It gives you a nice multi-tonal look when you are done. I was surprised, but I really did see a difference right away. The other really different part was that you shampoo your hair when you rinse the color out. Not sure if this is why or if it is something in the mixture, but after coloring, shampooing and conditioning, there was no residual odor AT ALL! (The mixture does start with a stronger chemical small than I am used to, so I was pleasantly surprised that there was absolutely no lingering smell at all when I was done.) I would recommend having a second pair of gloves handy. They do give you a pretty sturdy pair, but you have to take them off and put them back on later, and we all know how that works out with gloves. (With a bottle applicator like I've used before, you can cheat and just use one gloved hand for each part, but here you really need the gloves both times.) Overall, I would definitely rate this a 5 in terms of the final look. A couple more steps but not really any more time to do them , so I thin well worth it. I would definitely use this again. I got several compliments on how nice my hair looked - that's always a bonus!
