Essential Brands: IGORA #RoyalTakeOver – Dusted Rouge

For well over 50 years, IGORA ROYAL has brought hairdressers true colour in high-definition. Now it’s time to live life in even more colour, as Schwarzkopf Professional’s flagship colour brand introduces a unique co-created concept: IGORA #RoyalTakeOver


What is it?

Schwarzkopf Professional have further embraced their partner, the hairdresser, to bring colour visions to life through co-creation. Understanding that real collaboration paves the way for true innovation and creativity, IGORA ROYAL, have opened their colour labs to three of the most inspiring digital hairdresser influencers and three of the world’s leading colourists, as they team-up to co-create brand new colour shades.


The three bespoke colour collections reflect their co-creator’s international lifestyles, personality and creativity – when colourful minds come together, the possibilities are endless!


Kicking off the co-created colour trend is Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Ambassador, Lesley Jennison (@lesleyjennison) and Brazilian Colour Specialist, Jean Philippe Santos (@phjean) with IGORA ROYAL Dusted Rouge.


What can you do with it?

Hairdressers can provide clients with the latest colour trends – The IGORA #RoyalTakeOver Dusted Rouge collection offers an authentic, yet sophisticated take on reds with six unpolished shades, from barely-there red hues, to deep shaded vintage tones.


Two new in-salon colour services have also been co-developed with Lesley Jennison and Jean Philippe Santos to create key looks:

  • Deep Rouge Extravaganza – Jean Philippe Santos’s signature look – a shimmering effect of different tone depths that look lighter from underneath…
  • Pastel Rouge Allure – Lesley Jennison’s signature look – a subtle combination of barely-there red hues with raw and subtle tones...

What is the big deal?

Additional shade mixes will also be available – created with the IGORA #RoyalTakeOver Pastelfier – an ingenious product that dilutes the pigment concentration and tone intensity of all IGORA ROYAL tone directions, by enhancing the powdery characteristics of the base shade, adding a very soft cool tone direction – hairdressers can create their own amazing, on-trend pastel looks!

  • The first IGORA #RoyalTakeOver re-invents reds with six colour shades from team Dusted Rouge
  • All IGORA #RoyalTakeOver looks will be featured in Schwarzkopf Professional’s 2018 Essential Looks Collections
  • IGORA ROYAL delivers a modern, true-to-tuft tone direction and colour reflection
