it all started with an idea.
"Necessity is the mother of invention," and for a masterful and passionate stylist like Ricardo Jara, it couldn't be more true. He took Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a painful hand condition, and turned it into an opportunity!
Rather than give up on the technical benefits of a great balayage board, he created a whole new concept that stylists around the world are using to perfect their hair painting.
...A new balayage board was born
One day, Ricardo realized he could avoid wrist strain by holding his balayage board the way he held his phone... with a swivel-ring.
Colortrak loved the idea, and we jumped to help him make it a reality. Since introducing his revolutionary concept in 2018, stylists everywhere have been raving about the comfort and ease of our new Palette Board.
"...So I always had the wheels turning in creating something that would rotate and swivel. Then I got gifted a cell phone ring by my best friend and the rest was just like a light bulb going off." –Ricardo Jara
PRACTICAL, BEAUTIFUL, FUNCTIONAL
It has been an honor to collaborate with Ricardo Jara on this idea, especially after seeing so many stylist benefit from the design! We love the opportunity to innovate alongside real stylists, and our Ambassadors love it as much as we do.
"Something I made being packaged, executed, and manufactured by Colortrak is just plain insane to me. I can’t believe I invented something and holding the final product in my hands was just amazing. "
