Finding professional hair colour which is also vegan can be challenging. Luckily, Paul Mitchell has made it easier than ever for colourists to offer amazing colour services, using a wide selection of vegan products. From permanent colour products like Color XG to the demi-permanent range, The Demi, and balayage favourites like Skylight, there’s countless colour options available to suit every client need.


All Paul Mitchell Professional Hair Color products aren’t tested on animals, and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. Instead, they have harnessed the power of nature with plant-based ingredients that are great for clients’ hair, such as cottonseed oil, rice protein and sunflower extract. Delivering exceptional condition, brilliance and shine, colourists can deliver the on-trend tones clients love, along with the condition they want. Committed to keeping hair colour in the salon, where it belongs, Paul Mitchell Professional Hair Color delivers a complete portfolio of semi-, demi- and permanent colour options, as well as a full range of lighteners and toners to support salons’ hair colour needs. All of the colour lines are versatile, reliable and easy to use.
