Wella Professionals Expands ILLUMINA To Color With Vision

Internationally acclaimed salon professional brand, Wella Professionals, has been committed to serving the beauty industry with exceptional color products and scientific innovations for over 130 years. In 2012, Wella Professionals launched the most advanced permanent hair color science the industry has seen, which leaves hair closer to virgin hair while creating luminosity with 2X more light reflection. ILLUMINA Color delivers a glossy glow for women who prefer a more subtle, translucent color versus a rich, opaque end result. The current 20-shade range is expanding with six new couture colors to offer natural-looking tones to give hair incredible luminosity with permanent coverage results, without compromising its look and feel. 


ILLUMINA Color is the first permanent color that is luminous in every kind of light due to Advanced MICROLIGHT technology. Hair cuticles are left smooth and clear, allowing light to pass through and thus illuminating natural highs and lows from within. ILLUMINA Color fits perfectly with Color.Id; a freehand color system that lets you place color next to color without bleeding. These new shades help you to create customized and artistic looks for trend-driven, personalized color that offer consumers and stylists an endless canvas for self-expression.
