Plenty of gorgeous hair colour trends emerged in 2016, and we’ve chosen our top five to give you some inspiration for the year ahead.

Besides, what’s a season change without freshening up those pesky roots or trying something new?


1) Ombré

This colouring technique is all about subtle blending for a soft and natural look - no matter what your hair colour is. It can also be used for bright and bold colours if you’re feeling brave!

Why you’ll love it…

 Ombré continues to be a popular choice for those wanting a low maintenance colour. Roots don’t need regular touch ups and it’s a great place to start if you’ve never had colouring before.



2) Ice Queen

This type of blonde involves taking light tones above and beyond. A toner is key to keep brassy yellow and orange tones at bay for a bright and shiny colour. 




Why you’ll love it…

 Lots of celebrities have rocked this chic look including Taylor Swift and Rita Ora. Thanks to Olaplex and its damage reducing properties, we can achieve platinum blondes with confidence. 



3) Rich reds 

There are so many different shades of red that we’ve lost count! From copper to golden auburn, red is a lot more versatile than you might think.

Why you’ll love it…

If you’re looking to add warmth to your natural colour or spice up brunette tresses, then there is a hue for you! With so many options available, we can help you find a colour to suit your skin tone.

Our celeb inspiration is Emma Stone. She’s gone from a subtle strawberry blonde to a fiery redhead, proving that there is much more to red than meets the eye.

4) Colour Trip 

Our stylists enjoyed getting creative with TIGI Professional Colour Trip last month. We absolutely love the deep blues and electric violets. It’s set to be a colourful year, so why not give it a try?

 Why you’ll love it…

There’s a wide range of colours to choose from if you’re after the ‘wow’ factor. But, there are also plenty of options for more ‘hidden’ styles.

Rainbow hair trends are taking the industry by storm and a few of our stylists have already brightened up their look!

5) Balayage

This freehand technique continues to be a favourite for many of our clients. Colour is painted straight onto the hair for a soft blend of colours while avoiding the roots.




Why you’ll love it…

It works for all hair colours whether you want rich caramel tones, golden blondes or even a hint of pink.  Like ombré, it is low maintenance as the ‘sweeping’ technique helps to disguise roots once hair starts to grow.



Caring for coloured hair

Our stylists have chosen a few must-have products…


1)   Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo


Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo


Coloured hair is more prone to breakage and looking after your hair starts with proper cleansing.

Opt for sulphate-free and colour-safe products such as this moisturising shampoo. It’s packed with keratin, fatty acids and argan oil to help repair dry and over-processed hair.



2)   Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask


Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask 


The treatment reconstructs hair that has been damaged by chemical treatments. It has argan oil, shea butter and essential proteins to repair from the inside out. Use once a week for best results.

Investing in a high-performance mask will make a big difference in between your colour services!



3)   Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine spray


Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray 


This nourishing spray protects against harmful environmental elements including the sun, salt water and chlorine.

Even in the winter, hair still needs to be protected from UV rays to avoid damage and fading.

Spray around 25cm away from your hair as the finishing touch to any style for gloss and shine. Allow the product to set for a few minutes and you’re good to go!

If you’re thinking about colouring your hair, then pop into the salon for a free consultation or call 740401 for expert advice.


We’d like to wish all of our clients a very Happy New Year and a good hair day all year round! x
