Monrovia Hair Colorist

Our goal with hair color for women and men is to create beautiful colors that feel soft and healthy from the roots to the ends. We also think an important aspect of coloring hair is that it compliments your facial features, skin tone, and eye color. To achieve fantastic color, a hair colorist must master both technique and chemistry. We take great pride in thoughtfully planning color placement, formulating the color, and patiently allowing the color to transform existing pigments of the hair. We use KINESSENCES ammonia-free color for more natural-looking hair and sensitive scalps. We use KINACTIF color for high-impact color formulations, creating beautiful, long-lasting, rich tones. Our hair color lines are infused with five different essential oils, leaving your hair feeling better. 

KINESSENCES and KINACTIF Hair Colors are imported from Spain. KINESSENCES is ammonia-free, providing 100% grey coverage. Both hair color lines do not contain PPD, silicones, mineral oils, parabens, formaldehyde derivatives, or alcohol. They contain 5 highly pure ancient oils that provide numerous health and beauty benefits to the hair. They also contain an active emollient that acts before, during, and after the application of the color.
