Punchy pop colours

Friday - - Fashion -

AS SEEN AT: Pas­tel colours have been around for a few sea­sons now but this A/W17, de­signer Ryan Lo wanted to amp his mod­els up and go for slightly more vi­brant pas­tel shades cit­ing Hello Kitty dolls as his in­spi­ra­tion. At Ver­sace, colourist ex­traor­di­naire Josh Wood, ap­plied pre-coloured pieces to mod­els for flashes of taxi cab yel­low, vi­brant blue and ma­genta pink. WHAT TO ASK FOR: Ok, so you might not want to copy the look from Ryan Lo ex­actly, but ei­ther a wash of pas­tel all over, dipped ends or even just a flash of colour un­der­neath a la Ver­sace, are great op­tions. This look does come with some prep work. ‘Your nat­u­ral hair will have to be pre-light­ened to take it up to a white blonde,’ ex­plains Jes­sica Zurowski, stylist at Pas­tels Sa­lon in Jumeirah. This will ob­vi­ously take a bit more work and main­te­nance the darker you are, but it’s to­tally achiev­able. ‘To keep the hair strong, your colourist should use add a hair bon­der into your colour – such as L’Oréal’s Smart­bond or INNOluxe – they will help pro­tect the hair as it gets lifted.’ Then it’s time to choose your shade. Blon­des look great with pinks and peaches, while brunettes rock pur­ples and blues.
