Colour Match: Nigella Lawson

We can't mimic her sultry, a sassy attitude or cooking, but we have our own set of skills that can recreate her delicious, glossy Chocolate.

We LOVE Nigella. She's sultry, a little sassy and keeps us mesmerised with those side glances and that purring voice. To us, she is the all hail kind of woman. Since she has spent a few weeks on our shores, mesmerising us all over again, the fate was sealed. Who else, but one of our favourite Brunette's, could be this month's Colour Match.

The key to Nigella’s Colour is simplicity. It's a single, Natural based Colour, that compliments her fair complexion beautifully and highlights her dark features. It’s glossy, dark and incredibly delicious.

The key to this Colour is depth. You need a Dark Brown that is so dark, it is almost black, but also features a Brunette reflect, so the Colour doesn't look harsh or too flat. Our 3 Dark Brown is the perfect Colour for the job. It’s rich and dark, like her 70% cocoa we all know she is fond of. It has that same classic, deep Colour tone and is gorgeously glossy.


If a 3 Dark Brown is too dark for you, and you want to be just a little lighter and your Colour a little warmer, try a Colour mix. Combine equal parts of 3 Dark Brown and 5.53 Chocolate Brown into your kitchen aid, I mean Tint Bowl, for a lighter approach. It is perfect for those who aren’t as fair as Nigella and want some Chocolate Brown hues through the Hair.
