yuv Beauty Introduces the World’s First Smart Hair Color Lab — Introducing yuv Lab


yuv Beauty, a new beauty tech company, headquartered in London, UK, recently launched the world’s first hair color lab for salons and freelancers. The yuv Lab is a patent-pending system that dispenses millions of custom color formulations at the touch of a button, making your coloring options endless! According to a press release, yuv Lab “saves the average salon hundreds of dollars a year from color wastage, but also provides a sustainable and space-saving alternative to current systems.” 

The yuv Lab allows professional hair colorists to create precise formulations that are uniquely tailored to each individual client’s hair type and desired look. From quarter shades to the addition to tertiary tones, pH control, and translucency-opacity levels, the system uses advanced technology to create the perfect blend of color and tones, ensuring a flawless and consistent result every time. 

By pioneering a new approach, yuv has developed tailor-made refillable cartridges for the yuv Lab, with the goal of leading a more environmentally conscious future for the hair industry. With the use of aluminum metal cartridges, yuv Lab provides a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional single-use color tubes. In addition, the closed-loop system offers 11 refillable cartridges formulated with raw ingredients, reducing waste and contributing to a more environmentally friendly approach to professional hair coloring. 

yuv’s innovative and gentle hair color is designed to achieve maximum customization, providing up to 100% gray coverage while simultaneously maintaining your client’s hair health. The ME-PPD technology replaces PPD or PTD — the main sources of reactions in other color lines. As a result, this new and improved technology has been scientifically proven to dramatically reduce allergic reactions. Furthermore, yuv Lab is fully equipped with all of the developers that colorists need, including a cream bleach as well as a flexibility to substitute ingredients for achieving semi-permanent results. 

“We are thrilled to launch yuv and bring a new level of innovation to the professional hair color industry. The Lab pay-as-you-dispense model offers salons a more efficient and cost-effective way to color hair, while our commitment to sustainability ensures we are doing our part to reduce waste and protect the environment,” says CEO & founder Francisco Gimenez. 

The yuv pay-as-you-dispense model means that salons and freelancers will only ever be charged for what they use. Say bye bye to over-paying for dead stock! This new way of purchasing color is a cost-effective solution for everyone and allows for salons and freelancers to better manage their inventory and reduce their waste. To ensure color cartridges are automatically restocked, yuv has developed smart algorithms. Restocks are based on salons and freelancers’ own usage without any upfront inventory costs.

yuv Lab’s launch is just the beginning of yuv Beauty’s mission to upgrade the professional hair color industry. For £49 a month (~ 53 USD), salons and freelancers around the world can subscribe to yuv and gain access to its business solutions, including a yuv Lab, an Apple iPad to access the yuv app, and a thermal printer to label hair color bowls.
