We are about 30 minutes from Wella's Corporate Headquarters ...you can't get fresher hair color, we receive shipments 2X weekly. Beware of purchasing hair color on Amazon/EBay ( most eCommerce owners stay away from those 2 - sure they may ave some good sites but generally I would stay away from there as much as possible, like I do. I cannot tell you the amount of people who have complained about it being counterfeit AND/OR old, who purchased it on one of those 2 sites.
As of 1/1/2017 : We will continue to send 1 pair of surgical gloves + 2 - 1oz. measure cups w/ all hair color orders. This year you may ALSO request a 1/2 oz. free sample of barrier cream with your hair color order. Barrier Cream is what Hair Colorists apply around your hair line to keep color from staining skin as color processes. Apply around hair line, not touching hair.... in a circular motion to give it a "natural" look. You must REQUEST the Barrier cream which is easily attached ( in the "NOTES" section). Normally the only people who require it are: Level 8 & darker, but there are no restrictions, just ask !
We moved all Developers (click there) so we could fit all colors on this page
There’s a reason why Koleston is called Perfect – 100.000 salons who use it-is a pretty good reason why!

Mix Koleston Perfect Creme with Koleston Perfect Developer to guarantee best color results. For Koleston Perfect the ratio of developer is 1 to 1. These tubes are 2oz. therefore you use 2oz. of developer per tube ....So for 1 ounce color you need 1 ounce developer.
USING COLOR I.D. -- YOU WILL WANT TO SWITCH TO GRAMS, its much easier - promise. So when 10 Grams of color and 10 Grams of Developer are mixed into a bowl - add 1 gram of COLOR I.D.
COLOR I.D> can be used with only Koleston Perfect & Illumina hair colors. What it is used for? To apply multiple colors to one head without having to use foils to separate the various colors......... which is the way it has had to be accomplished for the last 60 years !

You will want to use the Violet Developer we have in if you have any problems whatsoever with Brass, Gold or Blorange. Violet developer will go in the hair strand as it is the only time the cuticle is open. So be sure to try it if you have those issues. Remember using Level 11 or 12 colors you will always use the RATIO 1: 2, so for every 1 ounce of color you will weigh 2 ounces of developer!
Please remember Wella comes 1 full level darker than other lines. So if you are wanting
a level 7 you should buy a level 8.
