Salon Allergy Alert Testing Protocol

Technocracy Hairs team are all qualified to conduct the relevant testing and it is overseen by fully Qualified Master Craftsmen and accredited Colour Expert Kelly Shone-Adams. Kelly is a qualified colour Educator and takes the professional responsibilities in relation to colour application seriously and this is lead by the in-depth colour consultation process and risk assessment which follows both the manufactures guidance and the manufactures Allergy Alert Protocol. All clients have a fully documented consultation and colour application history which is signed and recorded by both the salon and the client and all records are kept for six years in line with the national guidance around data control and GDPR. Technocracy Hair is predominantly a one brand salon and we have used these brands since opening three years ago. This has given us a well-documented and recorded client history which is used as reference for every consultation and offer of application of colour.


OSMO and OSMO IKON as with all major colour Brands advise an Allergy Alert test 48hrs prior to any application of colour. This is further clarified by their colour protocol with certain criteria and our colour protocol has been agreed with our insurance provider using the manufacturers guidance and allergy protocol.
