What are you doing with your hair this Autumn?

The cooler months have arrived Melbourne and warm natural tones are back!

If you are transitioning your summer blonde to an Autumn look, go for a low maintenance colour that will incorporate your natural hair.  Ashy tones are still very popular, as are shades of rose gold, and an ombré will help you bring your sun bleached locks naturally into the winter.

Ombré is the gradual blending of one colour hue to another, moving tints and shades from light to dark.  If you’re looking to extend the life of your summer blonde, make sure your hairdresser shadows your roots to ensure your regrowth is soft.

Brunettes need to be considering caramel or copper tones this season, and a balayage is the technique for you.

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint.  It allows for sun-kissed natural looking hair colours, with less noticeable regrowth lines.  The latest technique to achieve this look is to section your hair into a halo and micro-foil your highlights.  Micro-foiling allows for ultra-fine precision which creates a seamless shimmer of colour throughout the hair.  Once applied, your hair is then hand painted to create that stunning blended look.
