Dip-dye, which beauty writers keep saying is ‘dead’, is actually alive and kicking in salons all over the world! And now even men are wearing dip-dye styles, so it must be here to stay for a while longer.

Can I Go Red?

Red is one of the rarest natural hair colours and one of the most popular shades requested by women in hair salons. Most women can go red and find that the addition of red streaks, stripes or balayage colour accents will warm up their complexion.

The important part is finding the correct shade of red to suit your skin-tone. Therefore, it’s best to consult a professional hair colourist first, who is trained in matching hair colour to different complexions in a totally flattering way.

And remember, one of the most common mistakes women make when trying to get red highlights at home, is that the colour turns out bright orange!

Tips and tricks

Before you get permanent highlights for black hair, it’s a good idea to experiment with Hair Chalk to see which shade you like best. Remember to consider the clothing colours you usually wear next to your face, so your highlights will harmonise with your favourite outfits.

The benefit of hair chalk is that it will cover black hair and create a new look, but you can wash it out quite easily. It can be drying to hair, so always condition your hair well before and after using it.

Platinum and sandy blonde

If you’re looking for an edgy look, platinum blonde is the best highlight shade for a rough, ‘street’ look. And for a strong contrast, that’s not as harsh as platinum go for a sandy blonde shade. This will really liven up your black hair and accentuate the texture and movement beautifully!
