It’s time to Spring into action (see what I did there) because a new season, particularly Spring, calls for a refresh. Because when else does a season evoke change such as Spring? And so, just as it is important to purge the Winter wardrobe in favour of the Spring/Summer one, we’re doing the same for our Hair. The cold months can create havoc on our Hair, sending it into a Colour hibernation. We find it will be left feeling either abandoned — think brassy, grown out regrowth, flat Colour — or, on the other extreme, over-indulged with Colour that we’ve painted over and over again to revive the vibrancy which of course leads to the opposite — dull, heavy Hair weighed down in product. Spring signals rebirth and we followed 3 Colour transformations, as told by the people whose heads you see featured, to show us how good a Spring transformation truly is. Hanna. Needs a quick Colour refresh. Natural Colour: Dark Brown Before: I can get too friendly with the Tint Brush and unintentionally spread my Colour over and over my Hair, even though I know it will lead to Colour Build Up. And guess what? I can see and feel my Hair is weighed down in Colour and I need to get rid of it ASAP. Step One: It’s a no brainer — I need to keep Colour Removing until I budge my Build Up right out of my Hair. Thankfully 2 Colour Removers later and I’ve done just that. I’m so relieved to be free of it and the brassiness through my ends just makes me so happy I’ve had a strong result. Step Two: I let my Hair settle for a couple of days and then Colour it with a Natural Brunette Colour mixer. After: I love nothing more than a glossy Brunette, there’s no shine quite like it. Products Used: Colour Remover, Applicator Bottle, Sectioning Clips, Natural Brunette, No Lift Developer. Kristyn. Needs A Full Colour Spruce Up Natural Colour: Light Brown Before: I have gradually been going Darker and Darker Colouring with 5 Light Brown and 6 Dark Blonde over the Winter, leaving my foils to grow out. Now that it’s approaching Summer I want to Lighten up, nothing too Light, while keeping my Colour Cool because I Naturally throw a lot of Warmth. Step One: First I needed to Colour Remove my old Dark Colour completely out. My Hair is thin, so 3/4 of a pack did trick, wrapping it in cling wrap to help accelerate the Colour Remover process. After I’ve washed it out I can see it’s worked it's magic and post blow dry my Highlights are really standing out again. I’m happy with this Lightness, I just need to fix my Warmth and even out my Colour. Step Two: It’s time for Colour. I would normally wait 48 hours before Colouring, but I’m on a time frame so I chose 7.1 Ash Blonde and 20 Volume Developer and applied it over my Natural Regrowth. 10 minutes later I covered the rest of my Hair with the Toner Kit, that I left on for 30 minutes, to Cool out my ends. After: Seeing my Hair, after washing all the product out, is my favourite part. I’m obsessed with my dewy Ash Blonde and how I’ve been able to include those once disgusting old foils into little flickers of Natural looking Highlights through my Hair. Products Used: Colour Remover, 7.1 Ash Blonde, 20 Volume Developer, Toner Kit, Tint Bowl and Brush. Lauren. Wants A Gloss and Tone. Natural Colour: Dark Blonde Before: My needs are simple — I need a pre Summer spruce up. My Blonde has been left to its own devices for a week or two too long and now it’s too Warm so I want to Tone it while I touch up my Regrowth. I love to multi-task. Step One: I adore the creaminess of my Colour, when it’s creamy that is, so I’ll be keeping with my normal Beige Colour mixture (8.2 Light Beige Blonde and 20 Volume Developer) and apply it to my Regrowth. Step Two: I use a 10.2 Extra Light Beige Blonde and No Lift Developer over my ends for 20 minutes as a Toning / creamy Beige Blonde gloss over to Cool the Warmth through my ends and give me back my pearly Blonde sparkle I love. After: My Colour spruce up was everything I wanted. I never get enough of Beige and how milky it looks and I’m always shocked how silky my Hair feels post Colouring. Products Used: 8.2 Light Beige Blonde, 20 Volume Developer, 10.2 Extra Light Beige Blonde, No Lift Developer, Tint Bowl and Brush, Applicator Bottle.

We're obsessed with her Glow Up.
Photo: Google Images We knew Princess Charlotte’s first day of school would melt our hearts. Her navy and red uniform, buckled shoes, the way she nervously twirled her Hair — but it was her mothers, the Duchess of Cambridge's, new ‘do that really took us by surprise. Photo: Google Images We (big lovers of anything Golden) were taken by Catherines Chocolate Brunette (Colour Match: 5.53 Chocolate Brown) at Wimbledon last year and have since watched — ok followed like a love story — as she slowly Lightened it until reaching her new Golden Blonde number she premiered on the first day of school drop off. Don’t be fooled, this Colour update didn’t happen overnight, it has been in the works for a few months and it developed in three acts: Photo: Google Images May/June the lightening begins, Catherine slowly Lightens to a Darker Chocolate Blonde with sunny beams of Golden Mahogany through it, teaming with the pending Summer season. Colour Match: 1/2 x 6 Dark Blonde + 1/2 x 7.53 Chocolate Blonde Photo: Google Images In August we got another peek at her even Lighter Golden curls in the salt aired action at the Kings Cup. We immediately approved of her new Golden glow that lifted her skin tones spirits as much as her Hairs. Colour Match: 7.53 Chocolate Blonde Photo: Google Images And then we were blessed with Catherine’s latest glow up. THIS IS WHY WE LOVE GOLD. Look at those luminous, Golden pigments glistening through her Hair, catching the Light at every angle. This is what Gold does — it uplifts, plumps, makes your Hair and skin tone look alive and full of energy. It’s like she’s had the greatest summer holidays of her life! Golden pigments sun kissed hues take away the shadows to showcase her magnificent bone structure and highlight the peachish hue in her cheeks. And it’s so easy to copy! Mix 1/2 x 7.3 Golden Blonde with 1/2 x 9.3 Light Golden Blonde for her depth with that Golden glow. Of course, you can use straight 7.3 Golden Blonde or 9.3 Light Golden Blonde if you want to adjust the Lightness.
