Rossano Ferretti and ME+

A big hitter in the luxury hairdressing salon and spa world, Italian hairdresser Rossano Ferretti takes up the first division-wide global ambassador for Coty Professional. With brands such as Wella Professionals, System Professional, ghd and OPI in the portfolio, Coty has scored big with this appointment – we totally heart Rossano and love that he will be collaborating on product and service innovation, brand creativity, education and PR.


Rossano Ferretti Wella Over coffee in London recently, we chatted about the news, and asked Rossano about the launch of his first project working with Wella for the launch of new Koleston Perfect ME+ :

People must think globally, connect globally. I was born a visionary, and want to support Wella in inviting hairdressers to challenge the way we see colour! New Koleston Perfect ME+ is brilliant for a generation who are more aware of ingredients. Did you know that PTD and PPD were patented in the 19thCentury, and have been the same technically ever since? Now Wella introduces a new product with ME+ that decreases the likelihood of a client developing an allergy to the colour product. It’s easier to apply root to tip for an even result, so the salon can be confident that whatever the level of experience, the colourist will achieve the best result. This launch is an opportunity for the hairdresser to be more professional!”

*FOR PEOPLE NOT ALLERGIC TO HAIR COLORANTS – Although the risk of developing new allergy is reduced, there remains a risk of allergic reaction that can be severe. Always perform an allergy alert test 48h before each coloration. Strictly follow safety instructions and consult /XYZ. If your client has ever experienced an allergic reaction to hair colorants, you should not color.
