1. New Copper
“Copper tones are super-hot this year! I personally love using copper, from bright vivid orange to soft natural hues. A copper rinse is great for those blondes which have started looking flat and green from over toning, silver shampoo or summer swimming. It will neutralise the hues leaving a shimmering rich tone behind.”
2. Lived-in colour
“This trend makes the colour feel like it’s been lived in while still looking salon fresh. This is done by creating a shadow or root but toning for a more natural grown-out effect. This service is great for those clients who like the colour to look a little softer when leaving the salon, this will gradually fade and leave the hair looking natural.”
3. Colour Contouring
“For this style, baby lights are used to frame and contour the face, giving a blonder feel around the front. This can change your look dramatically with little time and maintenance. Once bleached using the flamboyage technique, this colour placement can be toned down to any shade you like.”
