Custom At-Home Hair Color Kit

We believe that good hair color is essential, whether done at a salon or at home. Eva's custom formulated color kits for at-home use are formulated with the same premium hair color we use at the salon and according to your color formula in our client database and/or the photos you upload when placing your initial order. Every color kit is formulated, mixed and filled by Eva personally. The only difference is that you apply it yourself (perhaps with the help of a friend), rather than having us apply it for you. You may choose from Base Color or Glaze in the dropdown window at the bottom of the page. Many order both as the glaze is complementary to a base color. You may also purchase a virtual color/cut consultation with Eva, in order to assist with your color formulation and to ask her any other questions about your hair.

Photo Instructions

If you're placing a first-time color kit order, please upload photos of your hair by using the links at the bottom of this page. The only exception is if you have seen Eva personally for color in the last few months. Even if you see one of our other salon colorists, Eva would like to confirm via photos that your formula is correct as entered in our database. This also applies if you've purchased a base color kit previously without photos and are placing a first time Glaze order. The photos should be taken in natural daylight (if possible, outdoors) and should show:

1. Close-up of your hair part where your roots are clearly visible. 

2. Full headshot type photo with complete view of your face and hair.

3. Other angles of your hair as you see fit.

Up to 6 photos may be uploaded with each order and the more angles you can show, the better.

Ordering Guidelines

When placing your order, please select either base color or glaze from the dropdown menu below. If you're ordering both, as many do, you may need to use the back arrow after adding one of them to the cart.

As we are receiving many orders from those who are not recent clients of the salon, we have added the option of a virtual FaceTime color consultation with Eva. Even though most such orders are being formulated based on photos alone, the virtual consultation assists with this process and gives you the opportunity to ask Eva any additional questions about your hair, color or otherwise.

Color Kit Contents

Each color touchup kit is good for one application and includes:

- 1 container of your custom color

- 1 container of developer to mix with the color

- 1 brush for color application with your first order only. Please do not discard the brush after use, so you are able to continue using it for any additional color orders, as we have a limited supply at this time (a brush can last for years).

Application Instructions

We recommend that you begin by watching Eva's color application video on this page

Application Instructions for Base Color:

  1. You will receive two containers, one with color and another with developer. Do NOT open these containers until you’re ready to apply your color. The less exposure to oxygen prior to use, the longer the product lasts.
  2. Mix the contents of the two containers completelyin a ceramic or glass bowl (do notuse a metal bowl, the color will not permanently stain glass or ceramic). Do NOT try to use only a portion of the color mixture included as this is a custom formula and there is more than one color in the container. Therefore, each must be fully incorporated to achieve the desired result.
  3. Mix the color and developer thoroughly with the brush to achieve a creamy consistency.
  4. Sit in front of a mirror and start application first to the top of the head, separate your hair into approximately ¼” sections (the way you’ve seen us do at the salon).
  5. Apply color with the brush to ONLY the root area of each section. Try to not overlap the color on your previously colored hair as that may cause “banding” or sections that are darker than the rest of the hair.
  6. Apply color first to the top and sides of the head and to the hairline last. This is important because the hairline has a finer texture and processes more quickly. If you have someone in your home who is patient enough and doesn’t mind playing colorist, you can ask her/him to apply the color to the back of your head. However, the top, front and sides are most important to cover, as those are the parts of your hair that you notice.
  7. Set an actual timer for 30 minutes to allow the hair to process.
  8. At 28 minutes start getting ready to get into the shower for proper color removal. Do NOT attempt to wash this out at the kitchen sink. Not only do you need stronger water pressure to effectively remove the tint, but you also don’t want to risk the color running into your eyes.
  9. Rinse your hair for a solid 5 minutes before you shampoo. Shampoo twice, making sure to rinse thoroughly between each shampoo.
  10. Condition and style as usual.
  11. Hold on to your brush for any future applications. You will only receive a brush with your first order as we have a limited supply at this time.

Glaze Application Instructions:

  1. Mix contents of the two containers together as in the base color instructions.
  2. Apply glaze to washed and towel dried (damp) hair.
  3. Mush it around with your hands to fully cover the hair with the mixture, gently massaging the glaze into the scalp and through the ends, to ensure proper coverage.
  4. Allow to process for 5 minutes.
  5. Shampoo and condition hair.

Pro tip:  Don’t wash your hair for the next 72 hours so the cuticle can fully close when applying both base color and glaze. It is also best to wait 72 hours between base color and glaze applications.
