Looking at how celebrities are wearing their hair during award season this year, (a lot of twisted and creative buns) which guarantees the style to stay that way throughout the night. I noticed how stunning the blonde tones were.

Rosamund Pikes Blonde highlights

Rosamund Pikes finely weaved warm and ash blonde highlights adding dimension to the simple shoulder length bob – GORGEOUS!

 

 

Rosie Huntington Whiteley Blonde hair styles

Rosie Huntington Whiteleys rich gold balyage blending seamlessly from her light warm ash roots. Again two counteracted tones mixed together to create a soft light brown that compliments her skin tone beautifully.

 

 

Julianne-Hough twisted blonde bun

Julianne Houghs twisted blonde bun ticked all the boxes. Rose gold alternating with sandy blonde on top of a dark blonde base. The twist not only enhanced the colour but it gave her height.

 

Saoirse Ronan blonde golden globes

Saoirse Ronans light ash soft highlights blending into her golden ends.

Not a blonde but equally a stunning colour was :

 

Zendaya Golden Globes - beautiful blondes

Zendayas Mochal flashed highlights breaks up her rich and glossy chocolate base. The foils were woven thickly so that when her hair is being worn naturally wavy they create dimension amongst her curl.

 

These latest predictions are bold and fun. If you’re not game, I recommend introducing any of these tones in a subtle way. If you’re feeling for a change then these colours will certainly turn heads!

You will never see grey hair models in magazines that’s because the companies that advertise in these publications don’t want you to.

I am often asked “can I grow out my hair colour and go grey?”

Yes you can only if you’re 100% white (grey). You see white hair mixed with your natural colour looks ageing but a full head of grey can look very chic. Because grey hair has no pigment and keratin it will frizz and look dry. You need a good shaped haircut (consider a short hair style when going grey), good products and effort to keep it looking styled or it will never work.

Grey hair needs toning otherwise it will start to stain from pollution, smoke, chlorine, etc.  A deep violet pigmented shampoo and conditioner will neutralise these unwanted tones or a toner from your hairdresser can do the trick instantly.

My final advice to look fabulously grey is styling. If it is not smoothed out and lacks product it will fuzz. There are a few grey headed clients who I have come across that won’t need to remember all of the above as it naturally looks silvery, white and smooth.
