colour responsible policy

Feathers Salon Group follow a Colour Responsible Policy for the safety and peace of mind of our clients. PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. We ask you to carry out a skin test 48 hours prior to every colour service, to ensure you are not allergic to the key ingredients in hair colourants.

Allergies can develop at any time and for no apparent reason, therefore you must carry out a skin test before EVERY colour service. It is a very simple process, which can be carried out from the comfort of your own home. 

Manufacturer’s instructions state “Hair colourants are not intended to be used on persons under the age of 16” therefore Feathers Salon Group are unable to perform colour services on persons under the age of 16.


1.Remove the outer wrapping and peel off the clear protective film.

2.Press firmly to the inner arm with the logo face down on clean, healthy, grease free skin.

3.Thoroughly wet the backing card with a wet sponge or water spray until the backing easily slides away from the Colourstart logo.

4.Pat dry and leave the test on your arm.

Your test will be removed at the salon. We must be able to see the test on your arm upon arrival in order to carry out your colour service. Unfortunately, if you have not carried out your test, we will not be able to undertake the colour service, as your safety is of great importance to us.

When visiting the salon we will give you another skin test to use before your next appointment.
