As the sun loses it’s strength and cold nights draw in it is time to look at just what you hair is saying about you. Summer, holidays and the sun can have a harsh effect on your barnet leaving you with faded, frizzy and dry locks so autumn is the perfect time to book into your favourite salon for a deep conditioning treatment and a wash of colour. We spoke to Siobhan Jones, Colour Ambassador at Headmasters to see what the colour trends were for AW14/15. Here is her top four picks…
A gorgeous hue that compliments all skin tones and most importantly won’t clash with bright colours like a lot of reds can. This colour concentrates on mixing ultra fine shimmers of light, vivid copper amongst deeper mahogany tones for a truly burnished multi-tonal colour, that shimmer when caught in sunlight. Those with vibrant copper or red hair should opt to tone down and soften their colour while brunettes should add richness to bring their colour back to life.
Chestnut tones with graduated roots
I love this effervescent hue – it’s low maintenance but still super rich. Combining natural roots that graduate to intense, chestnut tones throughout the length and ends gives a really gorgeous glow. We are finding a lot of models are trading in their usual blonde locks for this wearable rich chestnut hue. Free hand balayage techniques are perfect for creating this colour as it gives the best blend of tones for a truly natural finish.
This season blondes mean business and that means going global. This all over colour is kept bang up to date by adding gentle, translucent tones i.e. soft gold making the colour appear more natural and luminous instead of heavy and matt.
Nod to neutral
It’s all about creating colour that has the perfect balance, we are so used to colouring and being able to pin point straight away the tone of the season – red, gold, ash. But this season it’s all about colouring hair so it’s super glossy and natural. Neutral tones around the face and hairline compliment glistening ribbons of a soft, lighter tone through the lengths and ends. This type of colour works best with a totally natural, neutral root colour – the more delicate the better.
