Hair 101: What is an Ash Hair Colour?

Tell me more about the #1 selling Blonde.





It’s official — Ash is our most asked about Hair Colour hue and the desire for those silky Tones has reached fever pitch. But what is an Ash Tone and what makes it so special? And, more importantly, will it suit me? You’ll find a whole smorgasbord of Ash answered questions, ready and waiting for you below.

What is an Ash Hair Colour?

Ash refers to a Hair Colours pigment, or a Hair Colours character, rather than how Light or Dark the shade is. Ash Hair Colours are Cool shades with predominately Blue pigment and hints of Greens that create a Hair Colour that looks smokey and silvery. Ash Hair Colours are crisp shades with a sleek, icy appearance — they are not vibrant Hair Colours.

Why do I want it?

For so many reasons! The power of Ash can transform your Hair Colour with its superior Toning capabilities that will counteract Warmth — Brassy, Yellow or Orange Tones — and infuse with Cool Tones to smooth out your Hair Colour and bring back the shine. You can use them to Tone any Colours from Brunette to Blonde that have unwanted Warmth or to soften the Warmth that Naturally occurs in your Hair.

Or just choose Ash when you’re looking for a glassy Hair Colour with silver smokey Tones and a muted effect.

Who does Ash suit?

Ash Colours compliment Cool Skin Tones — veins in the wrist are Blue or Purple and skin has a Pink, Red or Blue tinge. Cool Skin Tones don’t rely on big vibrant Colours, instead love the subtly of an Ash hue to flatter and enhance their Hair and complexion.

Where do I find Ash?

Ash is represented by the number 1 in Colour labels, but you will find it also in the Colour name or these Hair Colour shades.
