Some of Hollywood’s best-loved brunettes

When it comes to getting our brunette hair inspiration fix, Hollywood’s A-listers never let us down. Whether you’re looking for copper brown or golden brown hair, you can always guarantee that the world’s favourite celebs have you covered. Who are some of the most spectacular brunette beauties in the big leagues? You don’t have to trawl Instagram to see the styles we love. We’ve put together a cheat sheet for you below. Ashley Graham As far as brown hair goes, supermodel Ashley is absolutely owning it with this caramel Ombré. It has just the right amount of lightness at the ends of her hair. She may have just announced her pregnancy but we know she’s going to continue to bring the heat as a mama too. Is she one of your favourite brunette stars? She’s certainly one of ours. We have to admit, this old-school pin curl is a style we’re crushing on, especially if you pair it with the statement hair clips we’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately. Emma Roberts Those who love coffee might want to consider a touch in the hair too. We’re talking espresso shades that are simple, chic and never out of style. This one transcends the seasons and is great all year round. It’s also lower in maintenance as you only have your roots to consider. If you are already a shade of brown hair, you will love this colour even more. We also think that this cut really enhances Emma’s facial features like her jaw and cheekbones. Shay Mitchell Another mama-to-be who is loving her darker hair is Shay Mitchell from...
6 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Winter Hair

6 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Winter Hair

Over the course of winter 2019, we’ve watched winter hair colours take their cue from the elements. Whilst this is hardly anything new, we can say that some of these shades are slightly out of the box from what we’ve seen in the past. From spicy hues to moody tones, there are more than enough options to suit every skin tone and preference. Although there’s a variety to choose from, we suggest considering your skin tone before you take the plunge. Why? Not every shade works for everyone. That’s okay. It’s part of why we’re all wonderfully unique. Plus, imagine if we all walked around with the same hair! To see what skin tone you’re classified as, take a closer look at your wrist. You will need to examine your veins for some nights into your particular tone. If these appear purple or blue, you will be a cool skin tone. Should they look like they are green or yellow, you have a warm skin tone. Warmer tones should avoid golden shades and those with a cool tone should steer clear of reddish coppers. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we can move onto the best hair colours for this time of the year. Which hair colours have caught our eye for winter? Here are our favourites in no particular order and we even think they’ll transition well into spring too! When blonde and rosé become besties This one is a slightly muted take on the pink hair that many of us loved last year. We actually prefer this to brighter versions because it’s more classic...
4 Must-have hair tools

4 Must-have hair tools

At Renew, we pride ourselves on our legacy of amazing colour for amazing people. Through our extensive ranges and variety of shades, we’ve helped individuals embrace a new look and a confidence boost. Great colour aside, there are definitely a few hair tools that can help you have a good hair day every day. Whether you use them before work each day or for those big events, they play a part in many occasions, big and small. From old favourites like hair dryers to flat irons and even a few new inventions, here are the hair tools that many swear are worth the investment. On the straight and narrow A hair straightener, otherwise known as a flat iron, is one of those helpful hair tools that many of us rely on daily. Some choose to iron their entire head of hair, whilst others just use it to tame those pesky flyaway strands. Either way, if you invest in a decent one, it will last you several years. It’s also a great way for those with naturally curly hair to change things up every now and then. If you’ve got patience and some nimble hands, you can even use your hair iron to create beautiful waves and curls. We suggest choosing one with numerous heat settings so that you don’t unknowingly damage your hair. Look for ones with new technologies and coatings that protect the hair from the harsh temperatures. An added bonus is one that will switch the iron off if you’ve accidentally left it on and gone out… whoops. It’s one of the perfect tools for short hair...

5 Tips for achieving highlights at home

Getting highlights at home doesn’t have to spell dread. As the experts in home colour, we know that it’s easier than you think to get the desired end result. Although there are several highlight colours to choose from, there’s at least one that is ideal for your current shade. If you’re not completely sure which one that is, we even have an article on that right Once you’ve chosen the colour that will work best, you can get started on a brand new look. Before we get too carried away, we’ve put together some pointers. When it comes to getting those gorgeous highlights from the comfort of your own home, here are a few things to keep in mind. 1. Select a product that you can trust By choosing a pack from a provider that you can depend on, you are more likely to end up happy with the finished effect. At Renew, we’ve worked long and hard to bring our customers a range of hair colour highlights that they can rely on.

We always suggest at least two shades lighter to create a noticeable contrast associated with highlighting the hair. 3. Have the right tools on hand If you want to get a professional finish, you should...
