Riding the colour wave? Your mermaid locks need your TLC!
Amber Le Bon
Unicorn Hair, Don’t Care
We’ve seen better looks on Amber Le Bon, who hit the genetic lottery by being the daughter of Duran Duran lead singer Simon Le Bon and model Yasmin Le Bon. Call us old-school, but her natural chestnut locks really brought out her beautiful features. But we’ll give it to her — she can really pull off this pretty cotton-candy pastel pink.
The Attention It Needs
If you have a similar colour, Winson Kow, Joico Dream Team Member, has some insight: “Dyed hair always requires special attention. Try Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner which can help protect, repair and add lustre to strands. Apply leave-in treatments such as Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Dry Oil Spray that will protect them from heat tools and UV rays.”
Katy’s just bagged the title of “Most Twitter Followers In The World”, which is … kind of a big deal. So when it’s about beauty, we say Katy can do no wrong. And when it comes down to hair trends, going violet seems super logical, especially if you have dark locks and don’t want to take the ultimate plunge to bleach your hair … just yet.
Lock In Colour
Raymond Choon, Shiseido Professional The Hair Care Ambassador says, “Rule #1: Wait at least 48 hours to shampoo your newly coloured hair as it will give the colour plenty of time to set in. Next, use quality haircare products.” His pick? “The Shiseido Professional The Hair Care Luminoforce range, which helps prolong the vibrancy of your fresh dye while repairing damaged hair ends.”
Slay It With Grey
That’s so Raven! Now that we’re all grown up, Raven-Symoné has basically made us her over and over again with her ever-changing hair shades (#ColorsOfTheRavenbow). Though, this subtle ashy shade is our absolute fave: It’s equal parts grown-up, without being too old, and edgy, with just the right amount of feminine.
Right Kind Of Clean
“Always use a good colour shampoo to care for your silver mane, especially one with specific colour pigmentation,” says Zack Gan, Joico Educator. “Try Joico Color Balance Purple Shampoo and Conditioner — they’ll keep any brassiness from diminishing your blonde or grey hair’s cool factor. They also contain tone-correcting pigments that will attach themselves onto your hair fibres, instantly neutralising unwanted brassy and yellow tones.”
