Yes, you can absolutely apply your color to your beard and mustache to match your hair. Please be sure to do an allergy test a day before you color, you can find these instructions in your personalized instructions. We do not recommend you apply color to your eyebrows or eye area to be safe.

That depends on how much gray you started with, whether or not you’re enrolled in our Gray Reduction Program, and the results you’re looking to achieve. Here’s an example from our client who went from fully gray to a few grays blended, to help you visualize your potential custom color results. We’re happy to help if you have any other questions.

Demi-permanent hair color fades gradually, lasting up to 24 washes, while permanent hair color begins to fade after about 4-6 weeks. Some factors that can cause your color to fade prematurely are sun exposure, chlorine, too-frequent washing, or using cleansers and conditioners that are not specifically made for color-treated hair. Need a recommendation for cleansers and conditioners? Send your colorist a quick message.

It’s all about preparing your space and wearing the right clothes. Make sure to cover your floors and countertops with old towels or sheets to catch any hair color splatter. Try wearing a dark t-shirt while you color since you don’t want to ruin that nice dress shirt your mom bought you. We also send you an awesome Stain Guard you can apply around your hairline to prevent staining.

Stains happen, but as long as you get to the stain quickly, it should be easy to remove. To remove stains from your skin, try our Stain Remover towelette that’s included in your Color Case. Try a combination of baking soda or OxiClean and water for countertops and floors. For glazed, protected floors, try using an even combination of bleach and water or Barkeeper’s Friend. To get rid of stains in porcelain sinks, try bleach and water or OxiClean and water.

You have 0% gray if you’re not seeing any gray hair throughout your natural color. If you’re someone who has a dash of salt and mostly pepper, that’s considered up to 25% gray. If you’re seeing mostly salt with just a touch of pepper, you’re up to 75% gray. For our guys who see all salt—you’re fully gray. If you need help, send your colorist your most-recent photo by uploading it into your account.

Men with varying amounts of gray hair

Our demi-permanent hair color is Ammonia-, Resorcinol-, and PPD-free, and deposits color pigment onto the hair. The color fades gradually with subtle results to help with gray blending.

Our permanent hair color is also Ammonia-, Resorcinol-, and PPD-free, and permanently changes the natural pigment of your hair. It’s made with Monoethanolamine (or MEA) to provide full gray coverage.

Demi-Permanent vs. Permanent hair color

Permanent hair color is sometimes easier to spot since it creates a visible line in your hair once new growth sets in. If you have demi-permanent hair color, it would gradually fade away without any visible lines. You can also send your personal colorist a recent photo of your hair and they can help. Or check your account.

Your personal colorist is a big part of what makes custom color different. Instead of simply sending you a premade color, your colorist crafts your color from scratch and works with you to get you the results you want. They’re also there to help long after you’ve applied, to help make adjustments down to 1/4th of a single shade. Need product recommendations? They can help with that too. Think of your colorist as your guide to custom hair color.

Our Gray Reduction Program is for guys who are looking to gradually reduce their grays over 2-3 applications. Your personal colorist will work with you to decide on the results you’re looking to achieve and create a plan. Getting your ideal coverage can take some time to blend for a natural-looking finish. This program helps you start off with super subtle coverage using your custom color, crafted by the experts.
