Tech-Meets-Grooming Brand Introduces Individually Crafted Hair Colour, including First-Ever Grey Reduction Programme to Subtly Blend Greys
Colorsmith™ has launched in the UK, offering men a completely custom, personalised and effortless at-home hair colour experience with options for grey coverage on their terms.
First launched in the U.S. in June 2020, Colorsmith’s made-to-order men’s hair colour is individually crafted by professional licensed colourists at the brand’s London headquarters and is never premixed or premade. Every order comes with custom colour, personalised, easy-to-follow instructions, colouring tools and access to colourists who can help at every step.
Colorsmith’s Grey Reduction Programme is the first of its kind, designed for men who want to keep their salt and pepper look or gradually cover their greys over time. This new programme helps men avoid questions like, “Did you do something different to your hair?” with natural-looking and subtle results over two to three applications.
Powered by patented colour-mixing technology, Colorsmith was created by the makers of award-winning hair colour company eSalon, which has revolutionised women’s home hair colour for over a decade.
“As the global demand for customisation and convenience continues to grow, we’re thrilled to broaden Colorsmith’s footprint to the UK and help demystify the hair colour process so that every man can colour their hair with ease and confidence,” said Graham Jones, CEO of Colorsmith. “Every facet of Colorsmith was thoughtfully designed to give men a completely customised experience from start to finish.”
In a recent study conducted by the brand in the UK, 1 in 5 men who colour their hair do so every four to six weeks. Over 72% of men who dye their hair do so at home, either themselves or with help from a family member or friend. However, the study concluded that over 40% of men who dye their hair have not been completely satisfied with their current hair dye and decided to stop using their product. “Historically men have only had two options to colour their hair: one-size-fits-all boxed hair dye or frequent visits to the salon. Colorsmith provides a solution to common hair colour issues among men with a custom colour that yields natural-looking results,” added Jones.
Grounded in tech and colour theory, Colorsmith is for every man no matter where they are on their hair colour journey. The brand’s tested hair colour formula contains the highest quality of ingredients including Vitamin E, Keratin and Soybean Protein, and is free from ammonia.

Can I apply my colour to my beard or moustache?
Yes, you can absolutely apply your colour to your beard and moustache to match your hair. Please be sure to do an allergy test a day before you colour, you can find these instructions in your personalised instructions. We do not recommend you apply colour to your eyebrows or eye area to be safe.
