Who are we?

Colour World is powered by the Respect brand which has been informing, educating and inspiring hairdressers for five years at www.respectyou.me

Now it’s time to honour and support colourists! We launched the Colour World UK event in 2016 with a two-day gathering in London focusing on sharing and inspiring colourists of all ages and stages, in an anti-zoo environment. This means all coming together on one level – no stages, no barriers, no limits! The freedom of expression and opportunity to exchange ideas and contacts has proved invaluable. We extend this ethos now to the hub here at Colour World UK. If you have anything to contribute, don’t hesitate to contact us. We hope you find the site easy to navigate, but if you have any suggestions, then let us know. Get involved!
