A long summer (even a British one!) can be harsh on lightened hair making it dry, lifeless, and lacklustre leaving blondes lusting after something richer. Traditionally blondes head to the salon chair asking for warmer/ darker pieces put through, but on highlighted hair after a few washes this colour bleeds onto the rest of the hair leaving blonde hair dull and lacklustre. We then return to the salon chair, have brighter highlights and the cycle continues and hair condition suffers.
This season hair colour has evolved replacing the bright bold hues of summer with a softer more natural look. Blondes no longer look coloured and instead subtle ribbons are placed throughout the hair to add interest and enhance features giving a more genuine colour while adding shine and movement. Lily Donaldson and Cara Delevingne are great examples of the new no colour look which is healthy, natural and super flattering. Headmasters Winter Blonde is the perfect service to transform sun beaten blondes into this seasons must have colour, the stylist will paint rich tones throughout the hair injecting shine and depth for a truly personalised expensive blonde.
“Central heating rather than the sun is a blonde’s new enemy as it strips the hair of condition and shine, looking dull and becoming harder to dry and style,” says Headmaster’s colour director Siobhan Jones. “Combat this by using a deep conditioning treatment after every wash and then follow-up with a weekly treatment. I love Kerastase Masquintense or Headmasters Salon Experts Colour Brilliance Miracle Moisture Mask as it’s rich and moisturising but doesn’t weigh the hair down.” Siobhan’s top tip is to add the mask to towel dried hair and wrap in a shower cap or towel for at least ten minutes, the heat will help the treatment penetrate deep into the hair.
“Blonde hair can become brittle in the winter due to extreme weather so heat protection is a must as it will help prevent damage encouraging smoothness and shine. I love Kerastase Ciment Thermique as healthy hair is the only achieve an expensive looking blonde,” Siobhan says.
The bespoke colour is created to suit all skin tones so it can be as dark, warm, rich or glossy as needed. The result is a silky, super flattering, shimmering blonde that will make you the envy of your friends.
