The specialists in professional hair colour at Toni & Guy know how important your hair, and especially your hair colour, is to your overall image and confidence.
Whilst you are not able to visit your hair salon at the moment, they offer these tips for grown-out colour, to help you take care for your hair colour whilst at home.
The tips aim to have no effect on your salon colour, so that when doors can open again, hair colourists will be able to get you back to your favourite shade as quickly as possible.
1. How can I cover my roots?
The good news is that roots are cool again but if your natural colour is not what you want to see as your parting, here’s how you can disguise and style your grown out roots before you can get back in the salon chair.
A colour spray or hair mascara is a great temporary fix and it will give you total control with a seamless blend.
Instantly touch up your colour and say goodbye to your roots and unwanted grey hairs.
2. How can I style my coloured hair?
To really hide your roots, increase movement and add volume to your hair, apply a texture spray sparingly throughout your hair.
Try a brunette version to help cover up the roots if your natural hair is a dark shade.
To disguise your roots – change up your hairstyle.
Go for a ponytail or fold your hair back with a clip. Wear an Alice-band with your hair down or in a top knot.
Change up your parting, making sure it’s not perfect – straight partings always show off root regrowth more, so the more uneven the parting, the better those roots look.
3. Can I use a box colour to top up my roots?
As you might expect, Toni & Guy strongly advises against using box colours.
Colour technicians in salons provide a bespoke service, blending a personalised mixture, so it is nearly impossible to match your tailor-made salon colour to a box colour.
They say using a box dye will make it quite tricky to get an even result, which can become difficult for a colour technician to correct.
