Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is MimicColor?
A. MimicColor is an innovative, cosmetic hair color touch-up that covers your new growth between permanent color applications. Use it during that last week or two before your next salon appointment, when your roots are showing.
Q. How do I apply it?
A. Unlike other products, MimicColor can be applied with either a brush or your fingertips — so there’s no drippy mess or drying time. Apply it to either dry or damp hair. It leaves your hair looking and feeling natural and soft. You can also use it on your eyebrows. Watch this video to see how it works.
Q. What colors does MimicColor come in?
A. We currently have 5 colors. These colors blend easily into many shades! You don’t need an exact match, because you can vary the depth of color, depending on how much you brush on — like applying blush. See our colors here, and watch this video to see how easy it is to blend two colors.
Q. How long does it stay on my hair?
A. MimicColor is intended to be a temporary touch-up. It lasts until your next shampoo.
Q. How long does the product supply last?
A. Typically, a compact of MimicColor lasts from six to nine months, because you only need to apply it to the places where your roots show — the part, hairline, and temples. (MimicColor is most effective when there is less than a half-inch of new growth.)
Q. Does MimicColor rub off?
A. Not easily! It won’t come off on your pillow, and it’s also water resistant — so it stays in place when exercising or swimming!
Q. Can I brush my hair after applying MimicColor?
A. Yes. MimicColor is an extremely durable temporary color.
Q. Does MimicColor affect my permanent hair color?
A. No, as long as you shampoo MimicColor out thoroughly before your next permanent color application.
Q. Can I use other styling products with MimicColor?
A. Absolutely. MimicColor also adds great body and lift to the root area.
