    A Little Bit About eSalon

    eSalon was inspired by the idea that beautiful, quality hair color can be accessible without the uncertainties of over-the-counter products and the excessive expense of salons.

    Part tech. Part beauty. All teamwork. We're a unique blend of web experts, engineers, and beauty professionals working side-by-side to offer customized hair color and salon quality hair care products at-home. Our culture is dynamic, blending together innovative thinkers in product development, engineering, marketing, finance, creative, and customer service. We have an open office environment with free snacks, last Friday lunches—and of course, the hair color is on us! Within the last year, we shipped our three millionth order, ranked #7 on Internet Retailer’s Hot 100 Retailers list, and won the Allure Best of Beauty Award for Best Home Hair Color for the second year in a row.

    We take into account natural hair color, amount of gray hair, previous color applications, hair texture and condition, desired color, and other variables, so you get custom formulated hair color that you could never get off the shelf. There are literally thousands of color possibilities available, and eSalon can provide the best match with a hair color formula and Personalized Instructions customized for each individual client. The patent-pending technology enables individual customization on a large scale. Our hair colors are not pre-stocked. Every order is custom blended, bottled and packaged, then sent to the client as soon as it's completed.
