Hair Ideas

A new hairstyle or cut, or a new hair colour can transform our entire look and let’s admit it, change is exciting. If it’s time for you to change up your current style, here are some hair ideas for you.

Have A Fresh Look With These Hair Ideas

Current hair color trends are defined within the move towards relaxed glamour. Healthy, shiny hair with lots of movement, yet still well groomed. Color is defined – it’s either pastel blondes, in clean, icy tones. Or cool browns, or brilliant reds. The move has definitely been away from red browns, although if that’s a personal choice, or suits your skin tone best, you don’t have to be a slave to fashion.

Here are some ideas to incorporate the latest hair color trends into your style:

Dark Colour

Underneath, choose a darker colour like chocolate. Over the top, and for most of the hair, choose lighter shades like copper and bronze. The darker colour will frame your face, and if you go for any flicks or curls when styling, you’ll see it contrasted against the lighter colours. But the main colours when hair is straightened will be the lighter ones. It’s great for variety. Or, try colour combinations like coffee, honeycomb and golden syrup for a more subtle, layered effect.

Dark Brown Hair With Highlights


For brunettes who like their chocolate browns, try a few golden highlights to break up the block of chocolate unless your face and skin color can handle the density of such a rich dark colour. It really helps define your hair style, and is much easier to wear.

Straight Black

If you like very dark colours, try a brown black instead of a straight black. Or get your hairdresser to mix in some blue black into the brown black to give it more intensity. Also, try mixing in some caramel and pink-red foils with a violet brown black base. If they’re used creatively, and with restraint, you can keep the overall look very dark and mysterious, with a few hints of colour showing.

For blondes, try mixing golden blonde with a very light ash. Or for a more subtle but contrasting look, have the ends of a bob colored a pale pastel coral. If you want to try platinum shades, instead of going for a harsher white white, try a softer platinum white tinted slightly with pink. For a pretty natural blonde look, try splicing a few clove and light ash foils through a pale, golden base shade.

For something a little more outrageous and individual, go for a brightly coloured fringe, say in pink, and a few purple ends. If you want something quite striking, but not so colourful, just go for a lighter than usual highlight. As long as it’s tastefully done, it’ll look great. BTW, don’t try this at home!

When choosing colours, be aware of whether it’s a warm shade or a cool shade. And keep in mind how much of each colour is going to be on your hair. Which shade, or tone, do you want the dominant one to be? Do you want a subtle effect, or a more striking one? Unless the contrasting colour is going to be in small amounts, keep warm tones together. And cool tones together, irrespective of whether they are blond, brown or black. For example, chocolate brown highlights look good with warm vanilla, even though the colours themselves are quite distinct. 

A new hairstyle or cut, or a new hair colour can transform our entire look and let’s admit it, change is exciting. Remember to invest in a good shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair which can help prolong your dye job and keep it looking luminous, such as Goldwell Dualsenses Color and Colour Rich range, with its unique FadeStop formula.
