Gemma’s sa­lon has had many re­quests for the new trend from ladies over 40. “I have also sug­gested it to a lot of clients who haven’t asked and they have taken me up on it,” the stylist says. “I al­ways like to put it out there no mat­ter what be­cause the colour can be tai­lored so it suits any­one, re­gard­less of their age.”

Gemma says a good hair­dresser will al­ways con­sider your colouring. “When it’s matched cor­rectly with your skin tone and eye colour, it has the po­ten­tial to be your most strik­ing colour yet,” en­cour­ages Gemma.

She likes the ef­fect of all-over colour for pas­tel shades, but when it comes to bright splashes of colour, Gemma prefers to paint it on free-hand rather than use foils. “I find it gives a more blended re­sult.”

A stand-out piece in the fringe or hid­den pan­els of colour un­der­neath the hair, that can only be seen when the hair is up, are other op­tions, Gemma sug­gests. “Life is short, so why not have fun with your hair?” she says.
