eSalon’s Color Philosophy:
“eSalon was inspired by the idea that beautiful, quality hair color can be accessible without the uncertainties of retail products and the excessive expense of salons. We take into account natural hair color, amount of gray hair, previous color applications, hair texture and condition, desired color, and other variables, so you get custom formulated hair color that you could never get off the shelf.”
Before selecting your color, eSalon has you complete a hair profile to get a better understanding of your hair (condition, color desires, texture, etc.) and information on your skin tone and eye color. This helps to customize a color that is complementary to you.

Everything in your color kit is personalized from your directions to color.
All of the tools in your color kit are safely packaged in a molded holder. Your kit contains your custom color, developer, and coloring accessories.
These are my personalized coloring directions. These are also available under my eSalon profile in case I misplace them. There’s also a sticker to hold up your instructions on a wall or mirror as you color. Trust me, this is great if (like me) you don’t have much counter space.
My custom color blend and developer. My color selection was Dark Brown (Chocolate). This is a touch-up kit, so the color selection is based on the one saved in my profile.
Here’s a before look at my roots. My hair is usually tamer, but I brushed out the curls so that you could see the difference between my color and new growth.
No more roots! The color took out all of the brassiness in my hair and covered the few whites I have (we bypass gray in my family). Yay!!! The shade is slightly lighter than my natural color but you wouldn’t know it.
The convenience of this subscription makes me happy. I don’t have to remember when to color my hair, no need to make an appointment at the salon, and no hoping that I got the right tone/color. esalon takes care of all that for me and delivers straight to my door.
esalon is now offering a new highlighting kit designed to work with your custom color. It is based on the balayage technique and gives you a natural sun-kissed look, perfect for the upcoming spring/summer season.
