Tips & Advice
Managing Summer Colour
So you’ve spent hours upon hours pouring through glossy magazines and blogs to find the perfect colour for your summer look. Then you’ve taken a trip to see your local Regis colour technician who has worked their magic and turned your hair dreams into stylish reality. Why undo all that time and dedication by neglecting your colour care when Mr. Sunshine turns the heat up?
Managing your seasonal shade takes a little bit more effort when exposure to UV rays, chlorine, heat and extra styling are involved. Summer is a time for parties, holidays, festivals – the lot and you’re going to want to look your best but you don’t need to compromise on colour. With our fabulous collection of products from some of the leading names in haircare, you can be sure that your chosen hue will stay looking and feeling salon-fresh come rain or shine.
Our experts recommend the brand new Fudge Colour Lock range, which uses advanced colour shield technology to preserve your ‘do to its full potential. This sulphate and paraben-free formula promises to combat fade and enhance vibrancy for up to 25 washes. UV filters and nourishing ingredients retain colour and shine in just a few simple steps.
We also love the Pureology Purifying shampoo and know you will too! This ultra-gentle formula cleanses the hair with its detoxifying blend that lifts away dirt and residue without stripping away any colour. Hard water and chloride can be harsh on your hair after swimming in the pool, dipping in the sea or simply building up over time and this shampoo removes all of these unwanted chemicals to unlock shine and vibrancy. Finish up with the Redken Duo Shield 07 gel to safeguard lustre and colour intensity.
While the hotter months mean you want to look a million dollars, you also want to make colour maintenance as fuss-free as possible. Why not try out a fashion-forward ombre look which will require minimal upkeep but have you looking bang on trend. This style creates that highly sought after sun-kissed finished and is all the rage amongst the hottest celebrities and red carpet-goers. If you can’t bear to leave your all over shade behind, go for a pastel hue that will look just as fabulous even when it fades. Oh and don’t forget – roots are cool this season!
