Colour without commitment.. 25/02/2008
Spring Summer 2008 will see two very strong looks for hair - the bold and the beautiful!
The short gamine style popularised on the catwalk throughout 2007 by Agyness Deyn will be sought after by those daring enough, whilst the alternative look this coming season will be a return to beautiful and natural, unstructured hair.
For the last couple of years, we hairdressers have been promoting strong highlights and contrasting bold tones - the big "pob" look saw many clients slavishly cutting their longer hair into severe bobs. As always the following season tends to see a complete turnaround; strong severe "anti-head" shapes will give way to soft, feminine and sexy longer looks.
A heavy fringe combined with big waves is "the look" for spring/summer - especially when complemented by an all over natural colour. Stunning hair needs colour to accentuate the condition - our natural hair fades and loses condition as it gets longer, combine with the fact that most clients will have a history of previous trips to the colourist's chair throughout their hair, the result is that although your hair may be in reasonable condition, it will always benefit from an all-over colour application.
Modern semi-permanent colours (such as L'Oreal's Symbio range) leave the hair in fabulous condition, fade gradually over 3-4 weeks and most importantly of all, leave no regrowth problem. Whilst normal colourants work on the inside of the hair (cortex level) a semi-perm' colour will only "coat" the hair (cuticle level) - the hair is left soft, glossy and will even cover up to 30% of evenly distributed grey hair.
A semi-perm colour is an ideal way to give you a lift whilst your are in the process of growing your hair, usually priced between £20.00 and £30.00 it is also a perfect introduction to hair colouring for those who are nervous of committing to permanent hair colour.
