Is Your Salon or Suite Wasting Hair Color?
Never Throw Away Color Again: Keep Money in Your Pockets
Wasting color at the back bar and racking up costs—in this economy?! yuv® Lab is the world’s first smart hair color lab designed for salons and independent colorists to stop over-using color (and paying the price for it.) Not only does it replace inventory management, prepayment and client history cards, but it gives control back to the colorists to formulate freely without losing money. Here’s what you need to know.
Cut Waste & Costs, Not Creativity: How yuv® Lab Works
yuv® Lab created the world’s first refillable hair color Lab, pioneering new technology to dispense millions of professional color formulations with ease (and without waste.) The Lab gives colorists control to create precise bespoke color formulations, tailored to each client’s unique hair type and desired look. Its advanced technology enables the perfect blend of colors and tones, ensuring consistently flawless results.
From quarter shades to tertiary tones, pH control to translucency-opacity levels, the yuv® Lab empowers pros to push the boundaries of creativity. Here are a few key factors:
- Take control over your formulation with the yuv® App. Using color theory and simple yet precise measurements, the coloring process is easily streamlined and allows you to visually formulate and have creative control.
- Client history cards are a thing of the past. Keep all of your custom formulas and notes up to date and in one place. Simply re-dispense any of your saved formulas for consistent results every time.
- Easily transition from existing color lines. The yuv® Lab can be calibrated to perfectly fit your color formulating language, so you can work as you’re used to and let yuv® do the rest—without the headache.
Reduce Color Waste up to 35 Percent
One of the Lab’s standout features is its commitment to sustainability. yuv® Beauty has introduced the world’s first tailor-made refillable hair color cartridges, constructed from 100 percent recyclable materials. This eco-friendly approach means there is zero packaging waste and no single-use items in the color process, furthering yuv® Beauty’s commitment to a greener future for the beauty industry. It also features a Pay-as-You-Dispense model to reduce product waste.
Only Pay for the Product That You Actually Dispense
The yuv® Lab fully embraces the Pay-as-You-Dispense model, revolutionizing the way salons and independent colorists manage inventory and costs. This ensures that pros only pay for the precise amount of color used, eliminating over-purchasing and waste. The smart technology allows salons to never need to manually order again and never run out of color, cream bleach or developer.
This also means… there’s no need for inventory management and prepayment. Since you only pay for what you use, continuing to adjust and fine-tune your formula for the optimum amount of product can save on both color waste and cost—making your salon more sustainable, both environmentally and financially.
