What Is The Hottest Hair Colour For Autumn?
The leaves are changing colour, so why not try a hair colour change also?
Pink is everywhere for AW18, not only in your wardrobe but in your hair. It is a colour that has over the years become a trendsetter.
During her decade in the spotlight, American singer Katy Perry has sported nearly every shade possible in her hair, including pink, which she started in 2011 with a rose-gold shade. From there she went to full-blown fabulous pink, amongst other colours, over the years.
Katy Perry dropped her ‘Chained To The Rhythm’ music video on February 21st, 2017, and in it she’s rocking baby pink hair, bright blue eye makeup and glitter nails — get the details on her beauty look below!
The pink hair trend for 2018 doesn’t surprise Ross Lemon, hair “artesian” from Telleish Hair Studio, as it is a favourite colour in so many ways. Gone are the days where you leave the salon looking like a muppet! There are many shades of pink and different styles for you to explore.
If you would like to channel your inner Katy Perry and have some hair fun, here are some fabulous pink styles performed by Ross, who has included how to achieve these colours and what you need to do to maintain the tone and your hair’s health.
1. Pink Ombre
This colour was achieved with a gradual transformation as the client originally had black hair and to transform to this fabulous “pink ombre” she needed three sessions.
She also had regular treatments in the salon and maintained her hair at home with Olaplex to sustain the health of her hair.
"My Little Pony Melt" is what Ross called this style and colour - the perfect combination of Lakme Onscalp Lightening bleach and Toning of a crystal clean canvas followed by Evo Fabuloso Pro.
The colour is part of this client’s expression of her own identity because she isn’t a goth girl or a party girl, but she is real and fun.
The client had an underlying blonde to begin with and this only took one session to complete.
3. Pink/Blonde Fade
I love this style! This client is one of Ross’s best friends, a nurse who loves life and has one of the bubbliest personalities Ross has ever seen.
Being platinum blonde doesn't mean you have to forfeit the opportunity to play with colour. Try spicing things and add a pink/purple root shadow.
With this colour, the hotter the water, the fastest it is going to fade. Ensure you use shampoos without sulphates, which will also strip the colour. With this style, dry shampoo will become your best friend because the more you wash, again, the more the colour will fade.
4. Pastel Pink
A little pastel pink for Ross’s hometown girl as they are both from Warragul. The client's hair was formerly blonde, and Ross only used a pink toner rather than colour, which won’t last long. A fabulous style if you want to subtly add pink to your hair, maybe a fabulous staring point as if it will wash out in a couple of shampoos if you don’t like it.
