Multi-coloured hair trend
If you can't settle on just one bright shade for your tresses, why not go for several? Brightly coloured hair is bound to get you noticed and it soared straight back into the spotlight in 2015 thanks to the likes of Rita Ora, Demi Lovato and Lily Allen. Hair stylist Rebecca Adams from The Chapel salons is a big advocate of the trend.
"The 'My Little Pony' hair colour trend was a big success in summer 2015, it took us back to our childhood and added a pop of cute colour to dull looking tresses," she told Cover Media.
Rebecca notes that hues like pinks, purples, blues and greens were mottled together for the finish during the warmer months. It still looks just as fab now if you're after something more vivid. But if you want to adjust your choice of tones for the season, Rebecca has a few ideas to try.
"This season coming into autumn/winter sees more of a pastel approach to this trend working with pastel pearls, violets, greens and pinks," she explained. "The mother of pearl hair colour, is bright colour with a more glamorous edge. The iridescent tones look stunning when integrated into natural colours or used to give an old ombré a new lease of life."
If you want to rock this kooky look, approach with caution. Session Stylist and Viviscal Ambassador Neil Moodie, who has worked with the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, advises against colouring your hair at home. This is especially the case if your locks aren't as strong as you'd like them to be.
"My concern is that people don’t know what they’re doing and might for example put blonde on top of a dark colour not realising that this won’t work. It is a science," he noted. "There are chemicals involved and colourists are rigorously trained to use those chemicals. Someone who’s worried about the condition of their hair is best off to go into a salon and get some professional advice to guide them in the right direction."
And what if your scalp is highly sensitive to these chemicals? You don't have to abandon the dream of multi-coloured hair, as Neil recommends going for alternative dyes with natural ingredients like henna, or using vegetable or herbal options. On top of this, the pastel shades Rebecca listed above can be less toxic than darker options, as the deep shades often include coal tar.
