With summer on it’s way and the sun back shining, the creativity has returned to salons. Clients are opting for brighter hues, vivid shades and statement hair incorporating all the colours of the rainbow. It’s the time to be alive and encourage our clients to embrace their own vision for their hair, creating something truly unique to them.

From my collection VIVACON, this is a look that will wow everyone. Rich, full of warmth and an overall application, it’s a colour which is strong and bold, promoting confidence and strong values.
The Yellow Smudge
An image from my recent collection, SMUDGE, this look is perfect for those wanting to experiment a little more and try something completely different. Using sponges, I blend the colours together by simply smudging into one another. This freehand technique really allows you to get creative and the hair truly becomes your canvas.
Holographic looks are hugely popular in the salons at the moment. Colour clients opt for them wherever possible. The illusion of the changing colours and the striking shades used are instantly recognised. When creating this look it’s simpler than you think. You over direct the sections to the front of the hair, taking the entire top section to the front, so when the hair falls back into it’s natural pattern, the colours are in slightly different sections and it gives the holographic effect.
What better way to embrace your own individual style, than creating beautiful patterns on the hair. Working with a global application on the base, the pattern is simply freehand painted onto the hair, bringing your canvas to life. For me, this gorgeous green was the perfect base – it’s bright, bold and such an individual colour.
Fruit Salad Smoothie
Fruit salads are super colourful and this is exactly the inspiration behind this look. For clients who can’t quiet decide between two colours – blend them. It’s important to really work the colour into each other, in order to achieve a seamless and subtle blend, without harsh or bold colour lines. Colour by Goldwell Elumen
With Pantone announcing their colour of the year, it was only right I created something to represent this! Although predominately a cooler colour, this shade is full of warmth due to the purple and pastel tones used to create this colour. This look will be hugely popular throughout the year, going slightly darker as the months progress. Colour by Goldwell Elumen
This look is one of my favourites – it represents the colours of the ocean and the beauty that lies within, using a variety of different colour shades to perfectly compliment each other. Each colour is blended into the next, going from the deep depths to the lighter surface. Colour by Goldwell Elumen
A rainbow flash – the most beautiful flash of colour you will see. This is the perfect colour selection for those who love every volour and can’t decide, those who want to embrace creative colour whilst keeping their overall colour much more subtle. When creating this look, the application is up to you – do your thing, painting the colour directly onto the hair n your own desired pattern. Colour by Goldwell Elumen Play
