Illumina Color with Wella 

Illumina Color is Wella Professional's most luminous hair colour. It is a permanent colour that is powered by the ultra-sophisticated Microlight Technology, which allows light to enter hair and then radiate out, giving it an almost ethereal luminosity, and built in metal purifier that helps to prevent hair damage when metals are present in the hair. 

It gives your 100% natural looking colour with up to 100% grey coverage: while also providing up to 3 levels of luminous lift on natural virgin hair. While this Illumina launch isn't a formulation change its purely a packaging change, it's important to call out Illumina's key features and why you should be using it!

Illumina Color has its own dedicated technology; firstly, microtones which is the most sophisticated dye combination in Wella Professionals that mimics the natural hair tones, and secondly, microlight technology which helps to protect the cuticle clarity and allows light to enter the hair and illuminate within. It also contains a built in Metal Purifier that helps to prevent hair damage when metals are present in the hair and is a vegan formulation.

Illumina Color's unique palette of warm, neutral, and cool shades offers the most premium shading for expensive looking colour results and it's violet undertone helps to mute the tones to appear more natural.
