What Are Highlights?

Highlights are used to lighten your hair. They can be as chunky or fine as you desire and you can opt for a full head, 3/4 head, 1/2 head or hairline & parting.  Your colour technician will weave the individual sections, apply your hair colour, and cover with foil to help the colour to develop. The most popular highlights are blonde shades and the end result is a gorgeous lighter look. 

Should I Bleach My Hair?

Bleaching your hair at home often ends in disaster, so if you want beautiful healthy blonde hair, please book a consultation and appointment with our blonde experts in Chelsea.  Bleaching dark hair is unlikely to create the blonde colour you desire.  It will take several steps to create your desired blonde, whether that is ice-white blonde, golden blonde, ash blonde, strawberry blonde or grey shades. We are also likely to add a toner to remove any brassy tones and reach your blonde goals.

What's The Difference Between Balayage & Ombré

Ombré hair colour creates a more defined almost two-tone colour effect where your hair usually goes from dark at the roots to light at the ends.  Balayage creates a more natural, sun-kissed look, with highlights painted throughout the hair to accentuate your hairstyle and even your facial features. Blonde balayage is a popular choice but we can also offer red balayage, grey ombré, purple ombré – you name it, we can probably create it!

What Is Semi-Permanent Hair Colour?

As the name suggests, semi-permanent hair colour washes out a little bit with each shampoo.  This makes it perfect if you want to try a colour without committing to a permanent colour change. Ask your stylist about our Wella Color Fresh Masks which come in a range of colours which fade beautifully after 8-10 washes.  It can transform, revive or enhance your hair colour in a jiffy!  These temporary hair colours show up more intensely on lighter hair bases.
