Mambo (Hair Colour Identification)

The MAMBO device has been developed to mimic expert professional hair colourist, is easy to use and can achieve highly accurate colour matching.

Description

Professional colourists do not measure hair colour in a standardised way – as are L,a,b values and CIELAB references – but usually compare it to a hair colour catalogue. The MAMBO device has been developed to mimic expert professional hair colourist to match hair colour to a swatch book database. Use the MAMBO hand-held sensor on hair swatches or directly on the model head.

Connected to a computer, its dedicated software allows immediate hair colour identification with higher accuracy than human perception (see below). Just place MAMBO on the swatch you want to characterise to automatically identify its colour. MAMBO delivers the closest colour match in the database already available, or your personal database that you would have entered beforehand. No adjustments are necessary for the operator : MAMBO will automatically configure itself for optimum measurement.

Optical scientists have a colour matching performance of 46%  and Professional hair colourists have a colour matching performance of 50%.

However, using the MAMBO can achieve a colour matching performance of 95%!

(These results are based on a 50 samples study using Paul Mitchel swatch book. 7 optical scientists and 8 professional colourists took part in the study.)
