Champagne Blonde: Shine this Summer

I am unapologetic about loving a little luxury. For instance, if I want to wear perfume to bed – I do it, no questions asked. And I truly believe that I don’t need a special occasion to drink champagne, I’ve been known to pop a bottle purely because I felt like it. So it comes as no surprise that my heart was stolen by the Champagne Hair Colour Trend. Say what now? Champagne hair? Yes, it’s a thing! Champagne coloured hair is pretty much dark blonde’s shiny sister. Its gold tones will make you look and feel like the queen that you are! This colour works well with ombré, as the lighter ends blend into the gold tones effortlessly. This colour is incredibly versatile and has been spotted on celebs like Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevigne. Champagne is a very natural look, and doesn’t require as much maintenance as bright blonde.

How To Keep Blue Black Hair Colour From Fading Early

When it comes to hair colours, some are more prone to fading than others. Factors like the sun, chemical exposure, and the texture of your hair have been known to influence fading. When it comes to blue black hair colour in particular, you need to have a few tricks up your sleeve to stop it from losing its intensity. Are you a fan of DIY hair colour but want to stop yours from fading too early? Follow these simple tips and enjoy longer-lasting colour! 1. Avoid washing your hair too soon after colouring it. When it comes to blue black hair colour, it is best to avoid shampooing your hair for 72 hours so that the colour can take properly to your hair follicles. The theory behind this tip is that your hair cuticles have enough time to close and lock in the dye, giving you colour that lasts longer. If you struggle with oily hair and need to freshen it up use a colour safe dry shampoo, it will work wonders!2. Use colour-safe shampoos, conditioners, and treatments. If you’ve gone through the efforts to dye your hair, make the effort to maintain it by using the right products! Read the labels of your chosen products carefully and look out for ingredients that could strip your hair of its colour. If you see “clarifying” on the bottle, put it down! This will dull your colour.   3. Rinse your hair with cold to lukewarm water. Think of your hair in the same way that you think of your skin. The same way that hot water opens pores; hot water...
Stylish Slicked Back Hair

Stylish Slicked Back Hair

Whether you have a lob, or if you’re rocking mermaid hair – one of the most stylish celebrity hair trends to try this year is the slicked back style. Seen on celebs like Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian, this trend looks similar to a slicked back ponytail. But instead of having to tie your hair up and having to deal with a potential headache (we’ve all been there!), you simply slick the front part of your hair back and leave the rest down. These are some of the Hollywood starlets who have perfected the look. CiaraCiara looked absolutely breathtaking at the 57th Grammy Awards. Her hair was stylish, but subtle – the perfect complement to her voluminous gown. Kim KardashianThe queen of celebrity hair trends, Kim Kardashian was an early adopter to this look, and has been rocking the slick back trend for years.

Gigi Hadid: Celebrity Hair Trends

Gigi Hadid: Celebrity Hair Trends

Gigi Hadid has had a meteoric rise in the world of modelling and fashion. Let’s face it – the girl can do no wrong. With a mother like Yolanda as your mentor growing up, who wouldn’t? Blessed with a former model as her mother, Gigi knows all about celebrity hair trends, being in the industry for so long. What I like about her is that she has remained humble throughout, even when walking the runway as a Victoria’s Secret angel! She tends to stick to styles that really suit her structure. This girl knows her angles and sticks to them. Whether it’s slicked back, loose waves framing her face or a high ponytail, she looks gorgeous every day. Colourwise, blonde is her go-to colour. Blonde hair colour really suits her and it never looks false. You know that fake blonde that some celebrities do? The one where you wish you could change it just a shade or two darker so they look less washed out? Yep, that fake blonde. Well, she never looks that shade. A new trend with hair colour is strobing. It’s not just for the face anymore. This gives hair the power to change your facial features, as it lightens the hair around the eyes, giving the illusion of high cheekbones and brighter eyes. Gigi has recently tried this trend. According to Nalan Derby, hair stylist to the stars, ‘Creating hair colour is not a “one size fits all” concept, as there are so many different shades and tones to choose from, a bespoke and tailored colour may not be an instant thing. Your perfect colour...
