Are you fully self employed or on a wage?

No, they're not as good. I can't speak for rusk as I've never tried it but back when I was doing my level two I tried xp100. Its cheap for a reason, stinks of cat wee and just doesnt perform well. Wella is brilliant and consistent I'd stick with that.

Ok so ill stick with wella then.
Or are there any other brands just as good or better that you would recommend?

I like L’Oréal, Goldwell, Tigi, Wella and Alfaparf.

I’ve used Matrix but was less keen on their revamped oil based tints so haven’t used it for a while.

Not used Joico or Aveda but both well respected salon only brands.

I also like Guy Tang’s Mydentity range for pastel colours.

Wella would also be my first choice.
I also use a lot of Framesi and I like this too, it is slightly cheaper than wella, and performs well.
I have also dabbled in Colorissimo, this is cheaper again, and isn't too bad. Grey coverage is good, vibrant colours are vibrant, cool tones are cool, the only major let down for me is that they don't have a semi /quasi range, and obviously the Highlift blondes aren't the best, but they still work on bases 7+.

I’m going to follow this thread as I’m in the same situation. I’m starting a new job and have to supply my own colours. I’ve always used Wella or Kenra but the salon where I’ll be renting a chair from uses velvasilk, as this is practically identical to Wella I was wondering if anyone had used it before I buy it as I am wary of using a new brand but as I’ll be self employed the price of the velvasilk is appealing. Thanks in advance.

Oooo im interested in finding out a bit more of velvasilk now, ive not heard of it before.
I wonder how much that is per tube and how it performs compared to wella

I use some Xp100 and once you know how to use it it is good. I would give it a try, the .00 range is great for coverage and their toners are great! I also use mood hair colour which is really good but a bit more limited. Xp offer permanent and demi permanent shades. Alot of really reputable salons do use it but i think alot of people are too scared to venture out from using everyday brands which is fine i use a mix of everything myself

I have just started using Montibello and have to say i am really pleased. I trained in wella but the price is silly, have also used osmo ikon & xp100 which were both ok xx
