Ellie All about Aveda

We are really excited about the launch of Aveda’s augmented reality (AR) hair colour tryon experience. Removing your client’s worries and concerns of “will it suit me?” -it also allows clients to feel inspired about the various hair colours and shades out there.

The interactive hair colour try-on is available to access on and features Aveda hair colours ranging across blonde, brunette, red and vibrant colour families and as well as an exclusive “Colour Melt” ombre effect in additional shades.

“At Aveda we pride ourselves on our customers’ ability to create the look and colour they desire with our extensive range of shades,” says Barbara DeLaere, Aveda’s Global Brand President. “This technology and virtual try-on experience is a perfect way for our customers to get a feel for a style before committing to it in the salon chair, and we are excited to partner with Perfect Corp. and YouCam to make this experience that much easier and enjoyable for all.”
