Which colouring technique is right for me?
Here is our guide to the different colouring techniques we use in salon:
The perfect colouring technique for a sunkissed look. Colours will be swept through the lengths of your hair to give you natural-looking highlights.
A gradual blend of colour through the lengths, leaving your roots natural. Ombré can use various shades and is a low-maintenance colouring option.
Highlights or lowlights are applied using foils and add different tones from the roots through to the lengths. Your colour will generally need reapplying every 6-8 weeks.
All-over tints give a complete colour change. Most clients come back every 6-8 weeks to have their roots re-coloured, and colour can be applied through the lengths as well if it has faded.
Scalp bleaching is used to lift up your hair to a lighter shade. It is used if you want to be blonde, or if you want a bright fashion colour. You will usually need your roots recolouring every 4-6 weeks.
This gentle, subtle colouring system illuminates your natural colour, making it deeper and richer. It is less of a commitment to look after and is the perfect way to blend away greys.
L’Oréal Smatbond can be used alongside your colour to maintain stronger bonds throughout the process, leaving your hair stronger and shinier. Talk to your stylist about the benefits for your hair.
L’Oréal Professionnel colours
We only select the highest quality products to make sure we can keep creating the fresh, vibrant colours our clients know and love. We use L’Oréal Professionnel, a leading name in professional colouring. Our stylists choose Majirel for deep and vibrant shades, and INOA for gentle no-amonia colouring.
We always consult with our clients before a colouring appointment – it means we can talk to you about your colour and select a shade you will love. It can often take a few appointments to arrive at your perfect colour, so a consultation gives us the chance to discuss your aims, show you our colour charts and give you our expert advice on the process.
Please note that you will need to have a patch test at least 48 hours before a new colour is applied. It will only take five minutes – just pop into the salon and we will apply a small patch of colour behind your ear to ensure you don’t have a reaction to the products we use.
