Highlights perfect for any hair colour

Fashion designer Tracy Reese once said, “I’m crazy for colour. Colour embraces you. It wakes you up and keeps you present.” And what better way to welcome in the new season than with a hair colour make-over! But if you’re not keen to have a colour overhaul, why not go the minimalist route with highlights? We can help get you started with this guide to highlights perfect for any hair colour. Getting Started Before you try out highlights, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself. The second most important thing is choosing the right type of highlights. If you thought that highlights were just streaks, think again! There are many types of highlights to choose from including chunky, multi-dimensional, thin, dip-dyed and frosted. The type you choose would depend on your hair colour and style. The aim is to choose the right highlight shade for you and putting them in the right place and in the right amount. Why The Fuss?   Highlights can change your entire look in a good or bad way, depending on how it’s done.

Finding the right shade of blonde made easy

Blonde hair seems to be making its way more and more into our ever-changing hair trends. With Kylie Jenner recently reaching for the blonde hair dye, we can’t help but wonder what shade of blonde is the perfect one for us? Picking out a colour that accentuates your natural hair colour and your skin tone is more than popping a box of dye in your trolley, it’s also about finding a colour that enhances your highlights and brings out your natural tones. With four amazing shades for you to choose from, we thought you’d need a blonde bombshell guide to create that perfect hue this season. AlmondChanneling our inner Kristen Bell, this medium blonde colour is deeper and vibrant. If you’re looking for a colour that allows you to just dip your toes into the blonde pool, this colour is for you. A darker blonde suits a warmer skin tone, and will draw out your natural highlights as well as the undertones of your skin. ChampagneLet’s get our hair colour popping with a blonde colour that’s lighter than Almond Blonde. Just like our super model here, Miss Rosie Huntington-Whitely, we are inspired by this blonde that plays on your natural highlights even more. Keeping in mind that our Renew range is the base range, we recommend using this colour to brighten your natural hair, instead of using it to completely transform it from one colour to another. Matching a medium skin tone, this colour is great for ladies who just want their highlights a little lighter. Light BlondeMoving onto a blonde that’s even lighter, our Light Blonde hair colour...
