The Best Burgundy Hair Colour Looks For Winter

The Best Burgundy Hair Colour Looks For Winter

We love leaning into the colder seasons. Think warm layers, cosy knits, your favourite book and cup after cup of hot chocolate. So why not let your hair colour also signal in the season? We know what you’re thinking. Winter hair doesn’t sound nearly as fun. Images of dry, dull locks immediately spring to mind. Gone are the buttery summer highlights and fresh spring cuts. Winter hair means muted colours, messy buns and the overall feeling of “meh”. This is where a babin’ burgundy hair makeover steps in and reimagines winter hair. Burgundy is the perfect answer to a cosy-chic winter style that still makes a statement. Think of it as a way to spice up your winter hair without going too bold or crazy. It’s the perfect blend of low key and high key colour. Burgundy hair is also known as “red pear hair” thanks to its delicious fruity red and purple tones. It’s a rich, luxurious colour that makes any winter outfit pop and complements most skin tones. We also love that it’s not a one-shade-fits-all colour. There are plenty of different burgundy tones and applications to choose from. Not only can you rock winter’s hottest hair colour trend, but you can also make it totally unique to suit your style. Here’s How to Get the Look and All the Double Taps. 1. Oxblood or aubergine? Choose your hue. Burgundy hues range from ultraviolet red hair colour to softer, plum tones. When choosing a shade, consider your skin’s undertones. An easy way to do this is to think about what type of jewellery suits you best. If...
Highlights Just Got a 2020 Update

Highlights Just Got a 2020 Update

Looking to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your look? Then highlights are the way to go. Not only are they easy to achieve at home, but highlights add an instant update to your hair without any major commitments. Allow us to highlight some of the other benefits of the style:   1. Much less maintenance Highlights don’t need as much touching up as a full head of colour. When your entire base colour is different, your root regrowth is much more noticeable and requires a lot of extra time and attention. The regrowth with highlights is far more subtle and you can go up to 6 – 8 weeks before needing to redo it.   2. Way less damaging If your hair is struggling with the harsher winter weather, then now might not be the best time for a full head of bleach. Your hair takes several weeks to recover after colouring and will then need to be touched up every 4 weeks or so. Strategically placed highlights mean that not every strand of hair needs to be lightened, decreasing overall damage and need for upkeep and reapplication.   3.Yay for disguising the greys Light highlights blend in with your greys, softening the harsh difference between the greys and your natural colour.   4. Gives you an instant glow up Lighter streaks add depth to your hair colour and enhance your skin tone. With the added illusion of more volume, more warmth and the way highlights frame your face, you’ll look and feel like you’ve had a full makeover.   5. So many ways to highlight your hair...

Is lockdown life feeling a little “meh”? Then a bright ‘n bold new look is probably just what you need. Say hello to magical, multicoloured unicorn hair. Multicoloured locks are a fun and flirty way to express your unique style. Variations of this hair colour trend have been around for a while and we love seeing the look reimagined. What Exactly is Unicorn Hair? You might have given rainbow hair or mermaid locks a try over the past few seasons. We loved the rich, bold ombre of blues for mermaid locks and the seven-colour rainbow style. Unicorn hair is the 2020 update you need if you’re about that bold hair colour life. It’s easy to understand where it gets the name. Unicorn hair combines several soft pastel shades to get a multicoloured, magical look. The combination of cotton candy pinks, purple pastels and baby blues creates a mystical, otherworldly look that’s straight out of a storybook. How to Get Supernatural Hair While the tones of this style are a bit softer, there is nothing natural about Unicorn hair. What we love about this kind of ethereal look is the opportunity for variety. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to getting the look, so the first step is deciding what style of unicorn hair suits your vibe and what shades you want to work with.   Unicorn hair needs one or more colours in varying shades. Be inspired by colours like blush, lilac, aqua, bubblegum, buttercup and pistachio. Decide how many colours and which tones you want to add to your look.
