If you’re a blonde or brunette, your hair is probably a melting pot of different shades. High and low lights add dimension (and make colour look more premium) – well, it’s the same principle for fashion colours. Plus, it looks pretty darn cool.
This one’s good if you want to be all discreet about it. The coloured bit is underneath the top layer of your hair, so it's only seen when the hair covering it is moved out the way. Just pick a section and a colour. Our favourite is right at the front – it makes an ear tuck much cooler.
Yes, we’re still banging on about this (see what I did there?). The front bits of hair are bleached and toned either to blonde or a pop of colour is added. Don’t worry, the fringe is negotiable – face-framers or all-one-length cuts work too.
Or The Billie Eilish, as I like to call it. It’s like the dip-dye trend in reverse. Instead of bleaching your ends, you lift the roots and leave the rest. When the roots are lightened you can experiment with colours – as if your roots naturally grow out bright red.
Ok, this one is still all-over colour but it's too cool not to mention. Neon hair isn’t something you just “try”. You have to want it, need it. Your hair needs to be ultra-light beforehand, any darker and electric shades won’t work. Committed? Stock up on Olaplex and clear your schedule – you’ll need regular colour touch-ups.
All-over colour is out, this is how cool people are doing colour-pop hair
Newsflash: All-over colour found dead – and these looks killed it.

Pantone have called it, yet again; 2020’s colour of the year is *drumroll please* Classic Blue. The colour - which apparently instils calm and confidence (I’m listening) - has felt the love from fashion and interiors for a while now. And now it’s beauty’s turn. Let’s start at the top, shall we? Blue hair is bold, obviously, and it can be hard to nail the shade. Unless your hair is almost white, the yellow undertones can tone the hair to green or turquoise, especially as the colour begins to fade. If you’re going for a pastel or true blue shade,…View the board
Remember back in 2010, when Rihanna released her new album, Loud, and inspired an entire generation to reach for the red box dye? I truly never thought I’d be lusting over red hair again after that - but here we are. After Kim Kardashian and Dua Lipa both debuted bright red hues, a comeback was inevitable. So, what do you need to know before taking the plunge? Well, red hair isn’t exactly low maintenance. You’ll need regular colour top-ups and a little bit of extra TLC. Glossing or semi-permanent colours are a good option if you’re not ready to commit.…View the board
Salons are (hopefully) opening in July and - trust me - by then, our hair is going to need a major refresh - and we already know what we’ll be getting. Face-framing highlights, the Kylie Jenner-approved colour trend that screams summer. Face-framers are like a more subtle take on the 90s two-tone trend - or The Geri Halliwell, as we call it. Two-tone hair is all about that stark contrast between, well, the two tones (which is why it works so well in rainbow colour). Face-framing highlights are more blended. Think of them as an add-on to balayage. Lightening the…View the board
