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 5/1 Medium Cool Brown 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 5/1 Medium Cool Brown color cream into your hairline. Massage your roots to ensure even coverage.

Because 5/1 Medium Cool Brown 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 5/1 Medium Cool Brown 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.

I believe I'm going to be pulling a switch and saving money!

I have colored my hair both in a salon and at home. I love the results I get at the salon, but I can't stand the price. The 2 steps sound overwhelming and perhaps having a second pair of hands would make it easier. Trying to part the hair on the back of my head and apply the dye made me feel like a contortionist... At first. But I quickly got the hang of the process. I was very nervous about the 2 step process that this product requires. I have dark and gray roots so putting on color just at the roots for 20 minutes had me concerned. I wasn't sure that my ends would develop the same color as the roots and I'd be left with looking like I needed a color because I'd have darker roots. After the first processing time I prepared the second application. The mixture was a little thinner and I was concerned I'd spill it since you are supposed to scoop it to apply it. I didn't spill it. After I rinsed and dried my hair, I noticed the old highlights were the only thing different about my hair. But this makes sense as my hair was Brown with very blonde highlights. The color on the box was very dark and I was afraid is have black hair. But the name was Medium Cool Brown. And it looks fantastic. There is a subtle red hint to it. The smell at first is like all hair colors, but it quickly goes away. I did notice a cooling effect as if there was peppermint in the dye. Today my hair smells great and had awesome shine. If you want color that looks like it came from the salon without the cost, this is the product to buy. I didn't give it 5 stars simply because it was a little harder to use the brush in the back.

Vidal Salonist Permanent hair Color

VS Salonist permanent hair product is very easy to use. Before using VS I have tried a variety of brands and products. I haven't found the right brand or color until today. I was very skeptical but the results were much better than I anticipated. I was very satisfied with the results. The instructions were very easy to understand and follow. I used the 5/1 Medium Cool Brown. I believe this is the first time that I got salon results at home. This is the best my hair has ever turned out. My hair feels healthy, full and rich. I am very happy with the result it is perfect for the holiday. This is it, the perfect hair product for me.

Great coverage

The problem that I usually have when coloring my hair is gray coverage. The gray coverage with this product is phenomenal! The color is beautiful and super shiny! My hair is naturally dark brown and when I have used a medium to dark brown dye in the past it would turn out so dark it almost looked black. This products medium cool brown left my hair with a very natural dark brown color. It was super easy to use and left my hair feeling silky soft.
