Three hairdressers talking over wine
The idea was born when 3 hairdressers were talking over wine about a client who was doing their colour at home, but didn’t know what colour to pick.
But they couldn’t find any colour to recommend
They wanted to help this client out, but no home colour kit seemed good enough for them to confidently recommend.
So one made it her mission to find the perfect kit
Claire (one of the hairdressers) spent the next two years in Japan working to create the perfect Home Hair Colour kit.
Our founders Claire and Yuki are passionate about bringing you the best quality hair care products to your home. After spending three years in Tokyo developing MIIROKO Claire and Yuki are so excited to share the final product with the world.
Working as a hairdresser Claire noticed the significant stress and anxiety caused by the lack of expert advice when using home hair colours. Claire found that with the right colour and tips on how to apply it, women could apply their colour at home with ease and enjoyment. She is passionate about being the bridge between hairdressers and home hair colour users.
These are the experts that have helped create, refine and improve our home hair colour kits, so that on the off-chance you can’t visit the salon, we’ve got you covered.

Canberra company removing the grey area of home hair dye
Out of everything people missed out on during lockdown, nothing was more discussed than hairdresser visits.
As greys started to appear, many were tempted to give in to the box dye – even if it was just for Zoom meetings. However, if you’ve ever talked to a hairdresser about box dyes, you will know that they will tell you to steer clear.
MIIROKO bringing salon colour to a home near you
When they decided to launch their own business providing salon-quality, low-chemical home hair colour, they also decided to have a baby and relocate from Japan to Australia.
Then the pandemic hit.
