The Trend for Natural-Looking Hair Colours at Michelle Marshall Hair Salons in Cardiff
If you are feeling a bit nervous about taking the first step towards colouring your hair, then the new trend for natural-looking hair colours is for you! Very few of us are blessed with a fantastic hair colour so the 2019 trend for balayage, warm brunette lowlights and golden blonde highlights could be just what you need to take your hair from drab to fab!
If you are new to hair colour or have not had your hair coloured at Michelle Marshall Salons in the past six months or more, it’s essential that you book in for hair colour consultation at one of our Cardiff hair salons first, so we can guide you and help you choose the perfect colour that will really work for you.
We are Redken hair colour experts and can answer all your questions on what it takes to create and maintain a new hair colour, bearing in mind your hair type, hair history as well as your budget and the amount of time you have to spend on hair care.
Warm Blonde Hair Shades – Golden Highlights
What do we mean by a warm blonde? It’s a range of gorgeous hair colours that includes golden tones, honey hues, buttery blondes and caramel blonde colours. If you love hair that looks sun-kissed and beachy, then ask your colourist to weave some warm blonde highlights through your hair.
You could try lightening up your look with some warm blonde babylights, the latest trend. Babylights are tiny highlights designed to mimic your childhood hair color when it was lightened up by the sun! They work well with any hair colour and skin tone and are a great look for those looking for a low maintenance look.
Bronde Balayage Hair Colours
Bronde is a shade that merges warm brunette with golden blonde which can be added as highlights or using the hand-painted balayage technique.
If you are looking to update your hair colour this season and want to embrace a richer, darker shade but are sure about parting with your light blonde tone, then a bronde or mushroom blonde are beautiful options to consider. The mushroom blonde pictured here is a gorgeous ashy mix between brown and blonde. It’s an amazing look for both brunettes looking to highlight their hair and blondes who want to take their hair colour a bit darker.
Natural Ombré Hair Shades
Soft and natural ombré is big news this season! The ombré technique involves gradually making your hair lighter from the mid-lengths to the ends… and it looks beautiful when you choose a mixture of dark and light blonde shades.
Ombré is a low maintenance hair colour which makes it ideal if you are new to colouring your hair. You can leave longer between visits to your local hairdressers as there will be no noticeable root growth… but we recommend you return every eight weeks for a toner to refresh your gorgeous blonde ends. Looking to shake up your hair colour without making a significant commitment? Try a natural ombré hair colour!
Beyond Brunette – Milk Chocolate Brown
Give your brunette a subtle effect by adding some lighter-toned highlights throughout. Milk Chocolate Brown Hair is a lighter shade of brunette which creates dimension and shine. At the lighter end of the brunette hair colour spectrum, Milk Chocolate Brown is a good, easy maintenance choice if your natural color is somewhere between brown and dirty blonde.
Ask your stylist to create some babylights around your face for added to dimension and to give your hair a lift. Alternatively you could add some chunky, thicker weaves for a bolder, more obvious highlighted effect. Speak to your Michelle Marshall stylist who can create the look you’d like to achieve.
