If you're in the market for a Hair Colour that adds a touch of sunshine, that subtle shimmer of glow and an all-around gorgeousness — look no further than a Golden Shade.

You'll often read negatively about "Gold" and "Warmth" because it's referring to unintentional Gold. Today I'm talking about intentional Gold. The sun kissed, restores Hair from fatigue, rejuvenates your Hair and wakes up your whole face — Gold.

Can you have too much of a good thing? Ofcourse. Whether you're infusing it in your Colour mix for a smidge of shimmer or you love the dramatics of full strength volumising Gold — keep reading to find out how to get the perfect amount of Gold in your Hair Colour.

Gold Hair Colours Are:

Warm Hair Colours
Made of Yellow and Orange pigments
Suitable for Warm Skin Tones
Brightening reflects
Enhancing undertones
Great for Grey coverage

Why We Love Gold:

It's versatility.
Easily adds dimension to your Hair Colour in one application.
Gives the best Grey coverage and is essential to use once Hair has lost all Natural pigment. A Gold Shade will bring pigment and better coverage to White Hair, stopping your Colour from looking washed out.
They are the best Colour Fillers, grabbing to Lightened Hair to create a base for your next Hair Colour to build off and ensure a smooth Colour result.
