Adjusting your Hair Colour to suit the weather isn’t just a Colour statement, it's acclimatising your Hair Colour so it is conducive to the season.
When a new season begins to poke its head through the clouds bringing crisp mornings or longer nights, we know its time to change tack and start manifesting our new Colour style to be in tune with the new season heading our way. Yes, seasonal Hair Colouring is a thing and we think it’s about time more people embraced it like they do their new seasons wardrobe. Adjusting your Hair Colour to suit Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring weather isn’t just a Colour statement, it's acclimatising your Hair Colour so it is conducive to the season. For example — A seasonal Hair Colourer would never choose an Intense or Vibrant Colour in the peak of Summer, particularly when they are an avid beach lover. They know the sun and water will zap their Colour of all its intensity and leave them spending the Summer managing their Colours vibrancy harder than their schedule. Now, there is an art to the trans-seasonal Colour that doesn’t involve taking your Hair Colour to the extremes and following this Colouring guide will have you adapting pronto. Rules of a Colour Changer Choose Colours that compliment and mesh with the seasons. For example: choose low maintenance, less vibrant shades during Summer as the sun and water wipes out a Hair Colours intensity. Alter the Colour level in this guide to fit your Hair and Skin Type. Not all Colour changes need to be extreme, added hints and hues go far. A year in the life of the Seasonal Colourer Summer Like little pockets of sunshine, Summer is about Light. Say yes to Blondes, Platinum Blondes and Highlights and no to Vibrant Colours that the sun will drain all intensity from upon first meeting. If Blonde is too far a stretch Lightening your Colour a few shades will make all the difference, bringing some energy and enthusiasm back into your Hair and Skin Tone. We like our Blonde’s Toned with a side of Ash or Beige to keep the added Summer Warmth at bay and keep the salty dreams alive. And the Highlights we speak of can easily be casually painted through with a Tint Brush or the tips of your fingers. 8.2Light BeigeBlonde BUY NOW 9Very LightBlonde BUY NOW 908Extra Light SilverBlonde BUY NOW Autumn Your Colour should mimic the hues around you — falling yellow and Orange leaves, crisp Colourful sunrises and potent afternoon shades.

And how do we start living the Hygge life?
Pronounced hue-gah, Hygge is a Danish term meaning warm, simple, comfortable and the Hygge Hair Colour is as hearty and inviting as the meaning suggests. We’re saying see-ya-later to Cool icy, Ashy Tones and living the Hygge life — that is embracing Warm, Bronzed and Natural hues that leave you with a delicious, glowing Hair Colour. (Think Auburn, Golden or Caramel Tones.) Photo: Tumblr You may have noticed that unlike other Colour trends we haven’t mentioned one specific Colour shade. Instead, the Hygge life is about loading our Hair with Warm and energising Colour hues that can be varied from Hair Colour and Skin type. It’s the variation we love. Because with a Hygge hue you can still incorporate highlights or lowlights through your Hair or (incorporate) other Colour styles like Balayage or Bronde to give you a big, multi-dimensional Colour. Photo: Tumblr How do you live the Hygge life? Try swapping super Light, Cool Blondes for Honey Tones or add Caramel hues into your Dark Blonde. Redheads should embrace their Colour shade and inject it with Copper or Strawberry Tones. And for Brunettes, infusing Warmth through Auburn, Chestnut and Chocolate Tones will add texture to your Hair Colour. Live the Hygge life with these Colour shades.
