The perfect hair colour not only looks fabulous but can make you look years younger! Here are the latest at-home and in-salon tricks to getting it right.
Clairol Nice’n Easy in Natural Light Champagne Blonde and Natural Palest Blonde, £5.99 each, the spring catwalks were swarming with natural looking blondes. Clairol’s new at-home colours are perfect for creating that exact look. This is great for blondes who want to wear this season’s more natural hue.
Bumble and bumble Hair Chalk in Blush, £15. Going for a slightly more daring colour change has never been easier and non-committal than with this handy spray-in hair chalk. A dusky pink tone looks gorgeous sprayed from the mid-lengths to the tips of blonde or light brunette hair. Once you’ve had enough, just wash it out. Simple.
Charles Worthington 60 Second Colour Boosting Masque, £9.99, is a great rinse-off treatment that helps prevent fade for all hair shades and types. Use once a week for strong, glossy looking hair between colouring.
Garnier Olia in Intense Copper, £6.99, is a great option for dark blondes, brunettes and black hair and not only delivers amazing colour but also covers any pesky greys. The oil-based formulation penetrates deeper into the hair so your colour lasts longer.
TIGI Bed Head Dumb Blonde Shampoo, £16.95. The more hydrated your hair the less it will fade which is important if you bleach. This freshly reformulated shampoo includes Omega 9 and Vitamins B5 and E to inject the hair with moisture instantly.
L’Oreal Paris Préférence Ombré Intense, £6.99. Previous at-home ombré kits only offered dark hair a blonde option, but now thanks to L’Oreal there are two new shades to choose from; cooper and red. And the good news is the more your roots grow out the better the tips looks; the perfect look when your bank balance is in post-Christmas recovery.
Phyto Gloss, £20 is perfect if you’re going to take the time to do an intensive conditioning hair treatment at home. This hair saviour will hydrate dry hair and boost the colour too.
V05 Cherish My Colour Lustre Boost Balm, £3.69, is a great styling option for coloured hair! Not only does this add serious shine but it’s filled with a unique technology called Colour Grip that locks colour into the hair. Apply when wet and style.
