yuv Beauty launches the smart hair colour lab 

 yuv Beauty, a new beauty- tech company, launches the world’s first smart hair colour Lab, perfect for salons and freelancers. The yuv Lab will help you create bespoke colour looks for clients…ideal. The yuv Lab is a patent-pending system that dispenses millions of custom-colour formulations at the touch of a button. Rather like the paint-mixers you see in the DIY stores, this means you can create exactly the shade you want super-easily. AND the big win is that it will save you money and operate in a more sustainable way. Sounds fab.

Benefits of yuv Beauty

The colour Lab takes 11 large cartridges of colour to create the right blend you request and deliver only the amount you need. It saves the average salon hundreds of pounds a year from colour wastage and provides a truly sustainable and space-saving alternative to current systems. 

yuv App

Here’s the yuv deal:

Creatively, the yuv Lab allows professional hair colourists to create precise bespoke formulations tailored to each client’s hair type and desired look. From quarter shades to the addition of tertiary tones, pH control, and translucency-opacity levels, yuv says the system uses advanced technology to create the perfect blend of colours and tones. This ensures a flawless result your clients will love.  

yuv cartridges

Future conscious

The yuv pioneering new approach is to use specially- developed tailor-made refillable cartridges for the yuv Lab to help create a more environmentally conscious future for the hair industry. We love this and your clients will too. The yuv Lab uses aluminium metal cartridges, providing a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional single-use colour tubes. The closed-loop system of refillable cartridges also reduces waste, contributing to a more environmentally friendly approach to professional hair colouring. In 2023 we are all about sustainability and if you wanted to be more sustainable in the salon…this could be a great start.

Financially exciting

The yuv pay-as-you-dispense model means that salons and freelancers will only ever be charged for what they use; no more over-paying for dead stock…brilliant. The new way of purchasing colour is a cost-effective solution for everyone and allows for salons and freelancers to better manage their inventory and reduce their waste. yuv has developed smart algorithms that ensure colour cartridges are automatically restocked; based on their own unique usage, with no upfront inventory costs. Sounds too easy. 

What about colour performance?

The yuv innovative and gentle hair colour formulation is designed to achieve maximum customisation, providing up to 100% grey coverage, whilst maintaining the integrity of the hair. The ME-PPD technology replaces PPD or PTD which are the main sources of reactions in other colour lines and it has been scientifically proven to dramatically reduce allergic reactions. Furthermore, the yuv Lab is fully-equipped with all the developers colourists need, including a cream bleach, and offers the flexibility to substitute ingredients for achieving semi-permanent results.

“We are thrilled to launch yuv and bring a new level of innovation to the professional hair color industry,” said CEO & founder Francisco Gimenez. “The Lab and pay-as-you-dispense model offer salons a more efficient and cost-effective way to color hair, while our commitment to sustainability ensures we are doing our part to reduce waste and protect the environment.”

yuv is committed to innovation and sustainability, and the launch of the yuv Lab is just the beginning of their mission to upgrade the professional hair colour industry. For £49 a month, salons and freelancers can subscribe to yuv and get access to its business solutions, including a yuv Lab, an Apple iPad to access the yuv app and a thermal printer to label hair colour bowls. 

The yuv Lab will be at Colour World 2023 in London on May 14th and 15th, and visitors can try this game-changing addition to the salon. The yuv team will be on hand to demonstrate the Lab and answer any questions.
