Summer is on its way and this year style-conscious ladies will be looking to the sky for inspiration as beautiful beachy sunsets provide the colour palette for our hair. Here, Bradley Byrnes, stylist at Supercuts creative team The Edge, reveals the must-have hues this summer:
“Last year we saw pretty pastel shades steal the spotlight on the red carpet and this year even more women will be getting experimental and introducing gentle colour accents with washed corals and baby blues. The best way to describe the must have colours is like a sunset, anything from mellow oranges, to fading peachy pinks and apricots.
“Sienna Miller is a key trend-setter for this style with her sunset shades at the British Fashion Awards. Combining the new colour palette with the classic ombre style, Sienna starts with a muted pink at the roots, leading into a peach in the mid –lengths and into her natural blonde tones at the tips.
“Pairing summery shades with beachy-waves is the perfect look whether you’re lounging in the sun or heading to a bar for an exotic cocktail.
“As with any colour, it’s really important to work with what suits you and your natural colourings. Blonde locks and fair skin look great with almost any colour, whereas dark-haired lovelies should go for muted blues and purples. For a striking look try highlighting parts of the hair and running icy-cool blues and purples through.
“The benefits of modern colour techniques such as Wella’s brand new Colour. ID. mean you can be more playful with colour – experimenting with slices, veiling or creating a rainbow-effect dip-dye.
“Colour. ID. is an innovative new approach to colouring which allows colourists to place colour next to colour without the use of foils or the risk of bleeding. The result is a stunning soft transition blending from tone to tone, even when using contrasting shades.
“To stay ahead of the fash-pack this season, treat your hair like a canvas and you won’t go wrong.”
