Nothing surpasses professional application for colour full of depth & tones. Professionals treat roots first then lengths separately, because uncoloured hair at your roots takes colour differently than previously coloured hair in the lengths. Inspired by this salon technique, the Experts at Vidal Sassoon Atelier created VS Salonist, a revolutionary 2-step colouring method that treats your roots and lengths separately - bringing Salon Technique home. The result is stunning, seamlessly blended hair colour with lots of depth and tones.

Vidal Sassoon Salonist 5/3 Medium Gold Brown permanent hair dye is seamlessly blended for a premium look and a rich, vibrant color full of depth and tones. It’s more than colour. It’s a work of art!

Product Uses


To begin, empty the Rich Colour Cream (Tube 1) and the Colour Activating Lotion (Bottle 1) into the supplied bowl and mix until smooth. Then, using the tip of the supplied brush to part your hair, divide it into 1/2 inch sections along the hairline. Take 3/4 of your mixture (marked on the bowl) and brush it into your hairline. Massage your roots to ensure even coverage. Leave the colour in for 20 minutes (30 minutes for lightest blonde shades).

Add the Sachet of VS Serum (Sachet 2) to the colour cream still in the bowl. There should be about ¼ left (PRO TIP: If you did not use ¾ of the product in Step 1, remove the excess product before adding serum). Scoop the new mixture out of the bowl, smooth and blend thoroughly through your hair, all the way to the ends. Massage the colour all over, even at the roots for the best coverage. Wait 10 minutes.

Wash hair with a colour-safe shampoo, rinse and then apply the supplied Salonist Colour Preserving Conditioner. Leave in for 2 minutes, then rinse again (PRO TIP: Use Colour Preserving Conditioner for every day washes to make colour last longer).
