HAPPY TO D-I-Y
If you are already familiar with doing your own hair colour, why not have a little fun with some out-there shades? A range such as Schwarzkopf Live Colour only lasts up to eight washes, with the bonus of adding shine and condition at the same time.
Schwarzkopf’s technical expert Toni-Anne Arbon says your imagination is the limit with this ready-to-use formula. “Try using two shades, picking up small pieces of the hair and alternating the colour.”
After something more subtle? “Apply one colour just from the mid lengths to the ends of the hair for something a bit softer.” Toni-Anne advises pastel colours will show up and last longer on blonder hair, whereas the brights are best used on light to mediumdepth hair. “On dark shades of hair, the result will be more like subtle colour highlights.”
