A GUIDE TO HAIR COLOUR: HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT COLOUR FOR YOU

A GUIDE TO HAIR COLOUR: HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT COLOUR FOR YOU

Are you ready to switch up your look with a fresh hair colour but feeling overwhelmed by all the options out there? Choosing the right hair colour can be a game-changer, but navigating through the many choices can be daunting.  

Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with this guide from our experts on the different types of hair colour, so you can confidently step into your next salon visit.

 

BLEACH OR HAIR LIGHTENER

Looking to add dimension and depth to your hair? Highlights and lowlights are popular techniques used to create contrast and movement. Highlights involve lightening sections of hair, while lowlights add darker tones. Both techniques can be customised to complement your natural hair colour and skin tone for a stunning, multi-dimensional look. 

If you're after a more natural-looking colour transition, a balayage is the way to go. Balayage involves hand-painting highlights onto the hair for a sun-kissed effect. This technique offers a low-maintenance way to add dimension and brightness to your hair with a soft, blended finish.

 

PERMANENT HAIR COLOUR

Although it’s called permanent colour, of course it won’t last forever. However, if you’re looking for long-lasting result, this is your go-to option.  

This type of colour penetrates the hair shaft, altering its natural pigment. This process occurs from within, resulting in a rich finish that lasts longer. It's ideal for covering grey hair or achieving a dramatic colour change that lasts for weeks.

 

SEMI-PERMANENT HAIR COLOUR

If you're not ready to commit to a permanent change, semi-permanent hair colour is the way to go. This type of colour coats the hair shaft but doesn't penetrate it entirely, resulting in a subtle change that gradually fades over time. It's perfect for experimenting with new shades or refreshing your current colour without a long-term commitment.

 

DEMI-PERMANENT HAIR COLOUR

Want something in between permanent and semi-permanent? Demi-permanent hair colour might be your best bet. With two types to choose from, demi-permanent colour promises unique outcomes and advantages, ranging from bold and vibrant hues to delicate, translucent shades.

Intense and Vibrant Colour

This type of colour lasts longer than semi-permanent but doesn't have the same level of commitment as permanent colour. Ideal for enhancing your natural hair colour with richness and depth or for seamlessly blending away greys with a more natural finish, it's a fantastic option for those seeking a customisable and enduring solution. And with its ammonia-free formula, you can enjoy stunning results without compromising on hair health.

Translucent Colour Glaze

Introducing the magic of colour glazes: a revolutionary hair treatment that offers a zero lift, zero damage solution while delivering a stunning veil of translucent colour and shine. Picture it as a topcoat for your hair, delicately enhancing your shade to unveil a glossy, glazed finish. 

You can opt for a hair colour glaze to gently enhance virgin hair, swiftly correct coloured hair, or create a personalised shade on highlighted strands. This option is particularly beneficial for hair colour newbies seeking a subtle change without compromising their natural hair. Additionally, you can request a clear topcoat for a glossy finish without adding any colour.

 

TEMPORARY HAIR COLOUR

Ready to have some fun with your hair without any long-term consequences? Temporary hair colour is the answer. With temporary hair colour, you have the flexibility to choose how long you want your new hue to last, whether it's just for a few hours or up to a few weeks. Temporary hair colours are ideal for anyone seeking to experiment with different looks or add a touch of flair for a special occasion. They also serve as a fantastic option for maintaining your salon colour between appointments, as many temporary formulas contain correcting pigments to combat any unwanted brassiness. 

Whether you're looking for a subtle change or a dramatic transformation, there's a hair colour type out there to suit your needs and style. Consider your desired look, maintenance level, and commitment before making your decision, and don't be afraid to consult with our stylists for personalised advice. With the right hair colour, you can enhance your natural beauty and unleash your inner confidence like never before!
