In 2017, Madison Reed opened brick-and-mortar "Color Bars" in San Francisco and New York City for root touch-ups and glosses. Errett was named one of Inc.'s Female Founders 100 list in 2018. Madison Reed announced that it would begin using "raw photography" in all advertising imagery, signified with a "Real Mark". The company uses natural ingredients, such as argan oil and ginseng root extract, in its products, which are tested on human hair before going into production. It uses an algorithm that identifies a preferred hair color for customers based on answers to 12 questions about their hair. In 2016, Madison Reed released visualization tools such as a chatbot that analyzes primary and secondary tones to customize a customer's dye, and an augmented reality tool that uses a customer's smart phone or laptop camera to simulate a new hair color. The color ingredient used by Madison Reed products is made in Italy.
