LG & CHI’s Color Master Factory Will Change the Way You Do Color Services Forever


Imagine a world where you no longer have to second-guess color formulations for your clients’ balayage or creative color appointments. A world where you are confident that you’ll achieve desired color results every single time. A world where you can create infinite color possibilities with the simple push of a button.

Well, we are happy to inform you that this world now exists!

CHI color genius, Dr. Farouk Shami and LG Household and Healthcare’s top team of engineers have developed the world’s first-ever color machine called The LG CHI Color Master Factory and it’s set to make a major impact on the way stylists formulate hair colors in salons. The patent-pending digitally controlled color customization system will revolutionize the traditional in-salon color experience by offering stylists 30,000 recommended formulations as well as the possibility to create unlimited color formulations with exact precision.

Speaking on the brilliant new innovation, Dr. Shami shared in a statement,“ Farouk Systems is proud to continue our mission of Advanced American Technology for stylists to bring the artistry of hair color to life. We are a company that has always based its success on innovation. Today, we bring you the LG CHI Color Master Factory that took over four years to develop. It was devised with passion and a desire to manufacture something that would revolutionize our industry. “

Transforming the Hair Color Experience

Designed to take the guesswork out of hair color, The LG CHI Color Master Factory offers limitless formulations for permanent, semi-permanent, and demi-permanent color formulations with ease to lift and tone up to three levels. This breakthrough system also provides customized formulations, gray coverage, and tint back options with 108 shades and 8 additives selected from the color chart with color formulations that are ammonia and PPD free.

The best part? This innovative device will totally save you time behind the chair thanks to its ability to dispense custom color formulations in under two minutes! And, as if that’s not exciting enough, the LG CHI Color Master Factory also comes equipped with a super helpful simulation mode that allows stylists to preview a color on their client before they commit to the new look with before and after pictures. Talk about a game-changer!

But time-saving features aside, the LG CHI Color Master Factory is a device that you can feel good about having in your salon, environmentally-speaking. This unique system not only has the ability to cut waste reduction by 30 percent and track color being dispensed for inventory purposes, but it also features built-in sensors and a scale to measure for precise formulation, so there’s never any leftover color.Not to mention, the space-saving stainless-steel cabinet that houses the device stores 12 recyclable cylinders to replace the countless color bottles, tubes, and boxes that normally are needed to customize an assortment of colors.

An Easy-to-Use System

If all of this ground-breaking technology has you feeling a little bit intimidated, just know that the LG Chi Color Master Factory is really easy to use. When it comes to creating hair color formulation, the system has two options: it can be manually programmed using the touchscreen display or managed directly from a mobile app on a tablet or phone. If you go the mobile app route, you can simply download the Colormaster application from the app store and then send your formulations directly to the machine. 

Being that all the color formulations in the machine are organized by both stylist name and client name, there is never any confusion on whose formulation is in the queue. In fact, you can even see the color formulations being mixed.

When the machine is finished creating the formulation, a light will blink to let you know it is complete and then an automated voice response as well as the touchscreen display will let you know when you can remove the bowl. And, if for any reason you need to refer back to a previous formula that you created, the LG CHI Color Master Factory does offer a client management system that will store clients’ formulas and their photos from appointments.

Bringing the CHI Color Master Factory to Your Salon

If you’re ready to have your very own hair color factor in your own salon, there are currently two programs available to help you get your hands on a LG CHI Color Master Factory — which is currently priced at $10,000.

Through their monthly leasing program, you can lease a machine for only $100 a month. This option is highly recommended for independent salon owners. 

The other option is the qualified purchase program which grants you a machine FREE of charge if you meet certain qualified purchases. That is, if you purchase $20,000 a year in Farouk Systems tools or color products, you will receive a $1,200 rebate per year for your qualifying purchase. This option is recommended for larger salons as you can even own a machine at the end of a four year lease.

Regardless of what route you choose to purchase a machine, the fact is that the LG CHI Color Master Factory is a must-have for any stylist looking to take their color services to the next level.
