Breakthrough Hair Color System Your Salon Doesn’t Want You to Know About!

December 4th, 2012

Los Angeles, CA., December 4, 2012 – They may be a young company in the hair care arena, but eSalon.com is already ruffling the feathers of stylists across the country, and gaining recognition for their innovative service.

Estelle Baumhauer, eSalon’s Color Director, explains: “I’ve had outraged colorists come up to me at industry events and say, ‘How could you do this? You’re going to put us out of business!’”

Perhaps those colorists are outraged because hair coloring doesn’t have to cost consumers a fortune each month. Because now, the innovators at eSalon have found a way to offer it all – home coloring products at an affordable price with the personal guidance of a highly trained salon professional. And people are catching on. eSalon has recently surpassed their 200,000 order mark and are gaining an abundance of loyal customers.

eSalon’s haircolor solution
eSalon provides hair color, but it’s nothing like that drug store experience, where customers are forced to settle for pre-mixed products off the shelf.
“You just log onto our website and I, or one of our other color experts, will be there for your consultation,” explains Estelle, who has taught coloring techniques in Paris and New York salons. “Then we’ll blend your color, based on the over 2,000 color selections at our office. The personalized pigment will actually have your name on the bottle, because it’s made for you and no one else.”

Made from high quality dyes, the pigment provides long lasting color, 100% gray coverage, while leaving hair silky soft, thanks to their blend of vitamin E, B5 and Aloe vera extracts.

And for the ultimate in convenience, each order is delivered right to the client’s door-step for under $25, postage included. Compare that to the $100-plus price tags local hairdressers prefer to charge.

The media and Hollywood are also paying attention…
Salons aren’t the only ones noticing the company. eSalon was recently chosen by InStyle Magazine as “Best of the Web,” and NBC’s Today Show and Good Housekeeping Magazine lauded the service. Other recognition comes from Lucky Magazine and Entrepreneur Magazine.

Worth a try!
Customized color truly makes a difference. eSalon already has a handful of high-profile mentions under their belt. InStyle Magazine named it “Best of the Web,” and the company has gotten kudos from Entrepreneur Magazine, Lucky Magazine and Good Housekeeping. For more information, please visit www.esalon.com

eSalon is offering a sweet deal for first time customers: a complete hair profile and custom color kit delivered right to your door for only $9.95 (a 50% savings!) plus $4.95 shipping and handling fee, with a money-back guarantee – even shipping costs will be refunded.
