eSalon Custom Hair Colour Review – No Expensive Salon Visits!

If you ask me what I’m looking for when it comes to hair colour, I can sum it up in five simple words: quick, convenient, affordable, professional results.

Though it is hard to find all of these qualities in one- you end up having to either take what you can get or settling for subpar. All that changed when I was introduced to eSalon … so is it possible you can ‘have your cake and eat it, too’?

A little background…

eSalon is the only online customisable hair colour service offered worldwide. Their hair colour products are made using professional grade pigments for long-lasting results and superior grey coverage.

What sets eSalon apart is the personalised attention; they actually have a team of colourists who create each unique hair colour formulation. The part I was most impressed by? Their customer service. If you have questions at any point in the process, their expert colourists are available by phone or email for assistance.

The Process:

The ordering process is SO easy, which gave me a great first impression. I went on their site and took the hair survey for the colourists to review. They take everything into account: from previous colourings, amount of grey, hair texture, skin tone, hair length and more. You can even submit a photo for their colourists to review (a picture is worth a thousand words!).

Then, they blend your unique formulation and prepare instructions. Just. For. YOU.  Then, they ship the colour directly to your door … and let me tell you, I wish I could get shoes as fast!

The packaging is as impressive as the initial consultation, with personalised instructions designed for you. My package came with a root touch up colour, and a colour to brighten my ends, both of which I mixed with a developer eSalon provided. After applying the colour and letting it process I was ready to rinse. My instructions said to mix water in with the hair colour bottle and saturate the roots; I learned this helps lift the excess colour off of your scalp (never knew that, but it worked like a champ!).


I couldn’t have been more pleased with the way my hair turned out. The colour was rich, vibrant and the best part was I was able to do it myself! I received multiple compliments from complete strangers the next day I went out. It is a pretty awesome colour.

I have been so impressed by eSalon at every step in the process. If you’re tired of paying salon prices, or you want salon-quality hair colour on your schedule, give them a try. You’ll be hooked!
