LG, CHI Create the LG CHI Color Master Factory

Merging their technologies and knowledge together, CHI® color genius, Dr. Farouk Shami, and LG H&H's team of top engineers have created a cutting-edge color machine called The LG CHI Color Master Factory (patent-pending). 

It’s a digitally controlled color customization system that has 30,000 recommended formulations with the possibility to create unlimited color formulations with exact precision to make stylists' artistry come to life. The machine is also environmentally conscious, cutting waste reduction by 30 percent and tracking colors dispensed for inventory purposes. It has built-in sensors and a scale to measure for precise formulating.

The LG CHI Color Master Factory takes the guesswork out of hair color by offering limitless formulations for permanent, semi-permanent, and demi-permanent color formulations with ease to lift and tone up to three levels. It offers customized formulations, gray coverage, and tint back options with 108 shades + 8 additives selected from the color chart with color formulations that are ammonia- and PPD-free. 

The machine saves time as well, by dispensing color formulations in under 2 minutes. The simulation mode allows stylists to take a picture of their clients to try on the color first with before and after images. To view the LG CHI Color Master Factory, visit: https://colormaster.chi.com. 

The LG CHI Color Master Factory houses 12 recyclable cylinders that replace the countless color bottles, tubes and boxes normally needed to customize that many colors. To begin formulating, the LG CHI Color Master Factory has two options – it can be manually programmed using the touchscreen display or managed directly from a tablet or even a phone. For a tablet or phone, stylists can download the COLORMASTER app from the Google Play app store and then send their formulations directly to The LG CHI Color Master Factory. 

Since the color formulations are organized by stylist name and client name, there is no confusion on whose formulation is in queue. You can also see the color formulations being mixed – nothing hidden. When finished, a light will blink to let you know it is complete. An automated voice response and the touchscreen display will let you know when to remove the bowl. The LG CHI Color Master Factory also offers a client management system that will store clients' formulas and photos for their next appointment.

The LG CHI Color Master Factory is housed in an 18-inch by 22-inch by 22-inch steel cabinet that weighs under 100 pounds for space-saving and convenience. As a bonus, no noise is emitted from the machine to disrupt the salon environment. 

"Farouk Systems is proud to continue our mission of Advanced American Technology for stylists to bring the artistry of hair color to life,” says Dr. Farouk Shami. “We are a company that has always based its success on innovation. Today, we bring you the LG CHI Color Master Factory that took over four years to develop. It was devised with passion and a desire to manufacture something that would revolutionize our industry."
