In 1999 KMS goes through a brand makeover and reorganizes the line into 9 color-coded sub brands

2006 KMS  relaunches with an all new look and new formulas, then in 2011 with new packaging we are all familiar with today


 KMS California is amongst the favorite lines here at Carter’s Salon.  Modified formulas and new innovated products make it easier for stylist to work with and use on their clients.  The reorganized color-coded sub brands also make it easier for customers to pick a line that is personalized for their hair.
