o often, product companies and suppliers try to solve
styling problems or improve salon efficiency by focusing
on technique. The mission they propose is how can
stylists work faster and smarter? However, the brand-
new Colour Placement System (CPS) asks not what you
can do with your tools, but what your tools can do for you. In a
long-anticipated arrival, the Colour Placement System has finally
hit Australia. Hairdressers, stylists and colourists can now create
the ultimate creative colour styles with ease and compete even
more effectively with the home colour market.
Armed with decades of combined experience with some of
the biggest names in hairdressing, founders William and Karen
Sparacia launched Colour Placement System in 2013. It now holds
patents all over the world. CPS is a time effective and limitless
alternative to clips, foils or mesh, eradicating reliance on these
options and providing a more sustainable and creatively accurate
solution. The innovative tools allow gravity to work with, not
against, the colour application, ensuring imagination and
creativity is the only dictating influence. Above all, this solution
is easy and comfortable for the client, reducing colouring time
while expanding style options.
But what, exactly, are these innovative tools? Each kit includes
a specialized variety of items, including: four twister tools (each 1
cm larger than the last for maximum versatility), five main shaders,
three add on shaders, a twin tail comb (allowing even and accurate
hair spacing), a secu ring pin, and five different sizes of colour guard
to ensure no mixing or leaking.
The benefits of the new colour system abound is underscored by
new approaches including thermal funneling, which offers the
optimum colour development environment. Scientifically tested,
it significantly improves heat distribution through the hair (foils
don’t distribute heat as evenly, retaining heat at the scalp, which
may result in uneven colour) and provides an overall speedier
process without the need for external heat.
Other benefits include increased speed of application; time
generally varies between 10-30 minutes. The system also increases
hourly colour ratio income by an average of 100 per cent. The

system provides five different sizes to choose from, and each
can apply multiple colours, providing the ultimate standards in
creativity and flexibility, allowing up to six different treatments
at the same time. It’s also designed to prevent bleeding or tone
mixing, making it easy to apply different colours with precision.
That same precision means touch-ups are a breeze, helping you
and the client battle regrowth on the looks you create.
On the practical side, CPS is eco-conscious. It’s made of 100 per
cent recyclable transparent plastic, and all the treatments can
be washed out at the same time, reducing water usage. It’s also
an easy to learn system, which makes it ideal for salon chains,
ensu ring consistency across applications.
While the range of options and materials might seem dizzying,
the company has opted for an education-centric approach, making
it easy to learn the new system quickly and let your creative side
shine. They offer many courses, taught by CPSA-accredited Teacher
Trainers, which really take the time to teach the science behind
the approach. One day and two day courses teach technique,
demonstrate the tools, and crucially provide participants with
practical, hands-on time to learn effectively.
Marie Nieuwoudt helped bring the Colour Placement System to
Australia, after dedicating her life to the professional industry and
travelling internationally as an educator. “When I began working
with Colour Placement Systems, it was really obvious to me that this
tool gave you creative freedom, along with the phenomenal results.
Working with the product on a daily basis enables me to really
understand the benefits it can offer, and through our extensive
education program, I am able to share the tips and techniques that
will make multiple colour placement easier for every salon stylist.”
Marie’s com ments only reinforce the innovative mission of CPS.
CPS doesn’t replace or compromise existing salon services. It can
also be used with any professional colour products. It’s exactly
this kind of flexibility that the system benefits from, providing
easy integration into the way salons work now. This refreshing
creativity-sans-overhaul helps put the focus back on salon
innovation and power back into the hands of the stylist.
