Make your hair the mane event. Your hair colour is part of your identity, and it's one of the first things that people notice about you. When you change your hair colour, it can transform the way you look and the way you think about yourself. Colouring your hair has never been so quick and easy with Bookwell’s list of hair colouring technicians. All of our hairdressers use quality products with the latest in hair technology to give you locks to dye for.
From balayage to babylights, ombre to sombre, there are so many different ways that you can express yourself:
This is French for hair-painting. Your stylist will apply a lightener or hair colour to the surface of your hair in a gradual and natural way. This is perfect for those beach babe, sun-kissed look. This look is ideal for the low-maintenance girl. The colour is painted on in such a way that there is no obvious line of demarcation. Forget those regular trips to the salon because you can grow this out and still look glamorous.
This trend is perfect for those with fine hair. It mimics the subtle, dimensional colour you can see on children’s hair. Your hair is separated into fine, itty-bitty sections and colour is blended into your base colour. It can be quite time consuming but the result is worth it. Your hair colour will look fresh and natural like when you were a little child playing in the sun.
In this popular hair colouring technique, your colourist transitions your root colour to a lighter colour at the end (usually blonde). The darker your root colour, the more dramatic the look.
This is ombré’s subtler cousin. The lighter sections start a little higher and your stylist will introduce ribbons of darker colour at the bottom for a more gradual transition. This is a great way for blondes to go lighter without changing their natural colour. Like its cousin, this is a low-maintenance look that does not require regular touch ups.
This is all about a soft gradation effect whether you are getting blonde highlights or going for pastel all over. The colour is blended with the base colour of your hair so that there are no harsh lines. You can use multiple shades which look like they’ve been melted together.
Sometimes, you may not be happy with the state of your hair. Our stylists have different types of colour and correcting tools to help you correct brassy highlights, uneven bands of colour or faded low lights that just need to be evened out.
Like most things, great results require a solid foundation. You want your hair to be in the best possible condition before you get it coloured. Healthy hair will keep the colour bright and vibrant for as long as possible.
Do a hair mask a few days before getting your colour done. This hydrates your hair and gets it ready for the intense colouring process.
Avoid washing your hair the day before colouring it. You want to keep those natural oils in for a more even result.
Bring a photo of the look that you want. This way you can ensure that you and your stylist are on the same page. Your stylist will tell you what techniques you need to achieve that look.
Did you know that colouring your hair helps to build volume? The colour opens up the hair follicle, which plumps it and makes it more voluminous.
Change your shampoo and conditioner to colour-safe products (preferably sulphate and paraben-free). This will help to preserve the colour. Any clarifying shampoos will strip it.
Slip, slop, slap. The sun fade turn your hair colour brassy or make it dull a lot quicker than allowing it to fade naturally.
